I am currently a member of Chessworld.net, a similar site to RHP, but I am increasingly dissatisfied with the stuffy, patronising, censorius, over-sensitive and conservative nature of the fora there (where I have been an active poster.) I am therefore thinking of leaving there for here.
Would anyone like to help me make that decision? I have a few issues first,
- on chessworld.net I'm usually rated around 2150-2250, FICS around 1850-1950, ICC 2000-2200. What is the equivalent standard around here, could I get a few games with an appropriate opponent, please?
- I've skim read some of the forum posts here, but there seems to be the opposite problem to chessworld - too much abuse and lots of talk of spamming (Stang or someone?) Could someone direct me to some good threads to read? Both chess and non-chess ones?
- is it possible to create thematic tournaments here?
