    We as a players not only for the sake of playing, but also for the improvement of ourown.
    RHP running this site for peoples not only for Game site also for the business.
    My Suggestion would be RHP should think beyond from the business point of view and think in the line of recognising the players in anyform.
    your views please !!!

    I think that as a non subscriber he would like a free subscription maybe.

    RHP recognises players by allowing them to play up to 6 concurrent games FOC

    I think he means titles like, RHP master and nonsense like that. I think the site should avoid doing that, for one thing I find the whole concept vaguely silly, but my serious objection is that it's hard enough to stop people using engines anyway, adding an extra prize for hitting some rating or other is just going to encourage people to risk a ban to get these titles.

    Why, its just a business.

    What next, asking Comet to acknowledge me in some way because I spent £10,000 buying electrical goods from their shop?

    Oddbins acknowledging me because I spend £100 per week, every week buying wine from them.

    Where does it end?

    Tesco acknowledges me by giving me points and sending me vouchers for money off.

    Morgan Stanley acknowledges me by giving me Cash Back of .5% to 1% of everything I spend once a year.

    Virgin Wine acknowledges me by giving me an extra £20 for every £60 I spend.

    My Bank Manager acknowledges me by calling me sir.

    QED.

    youre totally right

    people cheat for no reason if you add money they will mess the whole site.

    you will see people trying to hide the comps my making a lesser move(is this possible?)

    Tesco acknowledges me by giving me points and sending me vouchers for money off. They overcharge in the first place, the vouchers are no more than gimics to keep you shopping there.

    Morgan Stanley acknowledges me by giving me Cash Back of .5% to 1% of everything I spend once a year. Paid for from the exhorbitant interest charges and fees they apply to accounts. The only people who make money are those who pay their accounts in full every month.

    Virgin Wine acknowledges me by giving me an extra £20 for every £60 I spend. Just how overpriced are their products that they can give a discount of 33%?

    My Bank Manager acknowledges me by calling me sir.

    There is no such thing as a freebie. Somewhere someone will have somehow paid for the freebie you are getting.

    I only buy where their prices are competitive and cheaper than Sainsburys or Asda

    Naturally I do exactly that. I never pay interest or charges.

    I thoroughly research the wine I buy. I only buy from Virgin Wines when I am confident of good wine at a great price and I can get mixed crates.

    Nuf said, I never pay him a penny!

    Maybe someone pays but if its not me do I care.

    Well then, you're going to have to work at it. You have a lot of competition.

    I agree. People cheat with nothing at stake. What would they not do to win some form of compensation. We chess players are by a general consensus the elite players of the competitive world. Don,t bring us down by shabby tactics. Let us be the one group of players with a sense of honor. There is no greater reward than that. In golf we find even pros who impose penalties upon themselves. Are they better than us?
