    I like being here, playing games, and being on the forum.

    How can I support this site in some way. I don't see anywhere to go to find out. Mind you, I am not wealthy, but I do love chess.

    I also enjoy this site very much. I'm coming up to my 1st anniversary with RHP, and can honestly say I have not met one abusive, sore loser(or winner!); very refreshing.

    I feel the best way to support RHP is to encourage new members.

    If you click on "help" and then on "subscription" it will detail the advantages of subscribing.

    I consider it money well spent, and in fact I subscribed after I won money in a weekend over-the-board tournament. I think playing here helped me get into form to win the tournament.

    ..and I thought you were offering unconditional love with your original post : How can I support this site in some way. I don't see anywhere to go to find out. Mind you, I am not wealthy, but I do love chess.

    apparently not :-(

    some of the benefits of subscribing are:
    you get unlimited games. You are no longer stuck playing a max of 6 games. this means you can play chess until rooks comes out your ear and the bishop out your .....
    You get to join tournaments, ladder, etc. This means you can join competitions. Your games will no longer just be You vs some person. It'll be you against a whole bunch of people. There are many different types of tournaments and even thematic tournaments (with certain set openings). There's always a crudload of tournaments to join so you never have to worry about not having any to play in.
