    So if enough of us log on to chesscube and complain about your spamming do you think it might stop.

    EDIT: Done it -

    Re: Spamming to promote chesscube

    Your member aziz is spamming in the forums on redhotpawn. Whilst I think an honest bit of info about chessbase within RHP forums is a good idea but posing as a genuine poster asking "whats your favourite website" etc (as aziz is doing)...is just annoying and likely to discredit your site. Any chance you could have a word

    Andrew Martin IM has been involved with the site which is either run by or at least connected to the English Chess Federation as far as I can tell (and Andrew Martin heads the junior coaching section of the ECF)....they've been testing it for a few months now. It does show some promise especially if the lectures get going...and I hope they find a way to keep there spammers in check.

    OK I had a quick look, played a blitz game and even managed to lose it after an unsound Bishop sacrifice. Oops.

    To be far it has some merits but I won't be leaving here soon as it seems to be a blitz site at present.

    My biggest problem was that when I selected a piece half the board "lit up" making it difficult to see what I was actually doing. I am sure they will recitify this and improve the site. Good luck to them as I am all for more "good" chess sites.

    all these "other" sites aren't as user friendly as rhp.

    the layout in the other sites suck.
