    Good day, lost souls, welcome to RHP's official counter
    for subscriptions which were left to run out or also did
    not materialize. Kind of a thermometer of this site's
    decline.

    If you have decided not to renew your subscription,
    whether or not the little star still twinkles, or you decided
    not to become a paying member, please post here
    stating your reasons.

    Later on we will take mugshots of everybody for the
    scum of this forum to have something to frame and hang
    on their walls, like stuffed deer heads adorning a hunter's
    living room.

    Since become chess champion in a small Peruvian town my ambitions in my chess career were finally realised and I decided to humblely retire.

    I know that this isn't the kind of reply that you were seeking, but just for the record;

    Born of some deep - seated and probably misguided (I blame my parents) sense of fairness, I would feel guilty playing without subscription. I play chess badly but at least I do so with clear conscience; it ain't a lot of money, after all, and if people take the trouble to set up and maintain this kind of thing then they should reap some reward, should they not?

    I will therefore continue to subscribe until a) I die, b) My brain explodes (Which may in any case lead to (a), or c) I decide instead to take up needlecraft or some other worthwhile and spiritually rewarding pastime.

    I too just think it's the right thing to do to subscribe once one has sampled what the web site offers and made regular use of it having found it to be good. I think the site offers good value for money.

    I agree; in terms of bang-per-buck this place is loud and good value for the small investment.

    Don't waste your sympathy; we all have our cross to bear and I've learned to live with it.

    I let mine expire. Not much added value for money, IMO; the clan system was the only feature I wished to try out as a sub and it didn't pan out for me. I get as much as I want out of the site as a non-sub.

    I let mine expire because of the atrocious moderation on these forums.

    I never would have counted you as a user of the word 'atrocious'. 🙂



    I get it though. If I let my sub go, it'll be because of the way they've allowed the obvious collusion going on in the clan system to trivialize possibly the best part of this site.

    The twenty or so regulars here who read that PM you sent me (I passed the contents on to them) might find the gap between what you are saying here, now, and what you said in that PM, rather curious. 😉

    What do you mean you "get it"? He's taking about forum moderation and your talking about clan ranking regulation.

    Er, do you mean the atrocious lack of it? Or do you mean that even when the moderators do moderate, it is atrocious?
