    Rhp should definitely have some criteria’s for new member. Some chess skills tests.

    Before being allowed to join, new member must show each piece moves.

    Then to eliminate more players:

    Mating with 2 rook + King vs King.

    Mating with Queen + King vs King.

    And to eliminate the really annoying users with their dumb threads in the general forums, you know who! The ultimate test!

    Mate with King + 2 Knights vs King

    As soon as they touch any piece in the test, the warning “You are a _______” should pop up and reject them!

    I believe, the forums would be much better after this.

    Before being allowed to join, new member must, at least, know below and do the following:

    One must be familiar with the concept that the rook pawns usually draw.

    One must know before joining this site that bishops of opposite color is usually a draw and when both sides have weak pawns one should not try for a big advantage.

    One must be able to win a game easily when two pawns up and show it to the site admins in an example game before joining.

    One must know that if a pawn up against a lone king and your king is in front of your pawn, it is a win.

    One must know before registering that a knight ending is really a pawn ending.

    One must know that with opposite colored bihops the attacking side has in effect an extra piece in the shape of his bishop.

    One should never without a very good reason retreat the knight to the backrank, if it hinders the linking of two rooks.

    Before being allowed to join, new member must beat RahimK in a two minute bullet game.

    One must know these basic things and contact the Web site entry instructor Mr. Gino Jay, at ginoj07@gmail.com

    Then we would have no new players! Take it easy on them, eh?

    My rules were reasonable at least.

    Would you have got filter out on step 3 of my rules?

    K + 2N vs K?

    So you are saying that that there's nobody who can beat you at 2-minute-bullet, eh?

    A bit to much don't you think?

    Would you have passed my K+2N vs K test?

    Chess site? Have you read some of the general threads recently?

    Just filtering the ____ out, who aren't here for the chess.

    Make's it harder for those spammers to join also. Not a 1 minute process anymore.

    Astoundingly, I'm with z00t on this one. You two eejits can play away at your elitist BS. Remember that for most people chess is a game. When you pay the bills by playing chess you can start ranting about how great you are. Until then... hm... how can I say this without getting modded? Actually I can't. So instead I'll say "here's a quarter, buy a life."

    They don't let anyone into elite schools do they?

    Standards!

    Ps.
    The Solution to the K + 2N vs K is not to move any of the pieces. Players who touch any of the pieces and try to move them think that mate is possible

    Chess is not the problem.

    The threads started by spammers who keep re-joining after getting the boot.
