    Anyone still play there? Of all the usernames I know that correspond to people on this site, barely any have moved within the last month. It is a great place to practice tactics though, many of you should sign up, because quite frankly, you stink!

    it's your success rate that's doing the stinking.

    My success rate is on a steady rise actually, it's going slow, but every time I do tactics now I achieve higher than my rate is at the moment.

    what kind of session percentages are you doing now? -I started doing 83-85% at 12 000 problems with overall % of 66.8, took a rating hit of 120pts, and I'm now at 77.3% overall at 50 500 problems done. you have a similar starting point, 10 000 problems with 63%. it will take a looong time to rise from there...

    but it's worth it.

    Now I am mostly doing 70+% . My rating flucuates so much though, one session I was in the 1620's, the next, in the same day, was down to the 1570's.
