    RHP's Greatest Single Asset

    The daily site chess move and public forum posting volumes of its active members and their external good will. Agree?

    No interest? No takers? Sadly, the OP rests its case (on further confirmation of the premise of demise).

    Could you reword your OP with some English grammar please, it reads like a crossword clue to me. I think what you are saying:

    'moving once a day, posting lots a day and being nice to people who are not on this site.'

    Posts and Chess Moves are the life blood of RHP. Sustained volume trends are required to maintain a lively community which will attract new members (and subscriptions) to generate advertising revenues. "... active members and their external good will": Promoting Red Hot Pawn for new membership referrals within the daily work and social circles in which you move.

    The site's greatest liability are those members who take its 24/365 availability for granted.
    They'll find this thread unsettling. According to the Thumbs Activity, eight already have.

    Building a an online correspondence chess site with superior "Computer technology" in no way guarantees that needed membership activity will be indefinitely sustained. There are simply too many competitive options. Promotion's required.

    Right. Some (the subs) make up a direct cash cow, others (non-subs) are marketable eyeballs. RHP is a business enterprise.
