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, ...[text shortened]... ” 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
