    Perhaps I just can't see the forest for the trees but on checking the help files I do not see any references to the fact that some stars next to players names are shown as revolving. What is the significance?.

    think it mean that they've played a lot of chess.....you're star changes colour every time you play a certain amount of moves i'm assuming that the revolving start means they've passed some sort of move barrier that the red stars have not.

    When you have done 100 thousands moves, then your star starts to revolve.
    In this moment there are 123 members who has accomplished this.

    Ah, we seem to have awakened the grand old man himself from his nap. Now he angrily shakes his cane in defense of the retirement home he calls a clan, Doddering Stars.

    I would point out, as you in your youth were too lazy to check, that I am in fact a member but not leader of the "Spinning Stars"
    That said I have just noticed that it is past your bedtime

    The memory is slipping isn't it, old timer? Doddering Stars was one lonely guy in a rocking chair until Provisional Clan! came on the scene. You were enraged with envy at my youth and vitality so you tried to discourage me. Your attempts were naturally weak, feeble and impotent, so you decided to copy me. You dug Doddering Stars out of the grave by joining after you saw the rising, energetic future of Pale Yellow Star Clan! and tried your withered hand at recruiting. And I must admit you've done a moderate job. Actually, it’s a lot like watching Cocoon.

    What an a$$ For a clan that started for all the wrong criteria, then changed to conform to reality you talk a load of bull.
    For a clan that supposedly started before tha "Spinning Stars" you are very slow out of the traps 2 points to date and zero net points
    "Spinning Stars" are already on 16 points with 6 net points - guess us old timers could teach you a thing or two, or three or even four as you have a lot to learn you whipper snapper

    Now, now, just having a bit of fun, no need get all factual on me. Besides, I’m not sure your heart can take the agitation. Furthermore, I strongly resent the implication that Pale Yellow Star Clan! is any more conformed to reality than was Provisional Clan!

    On the contary, it will not be long before you either start kicking members or change the name again
