    here's an Idea; how about A tutorial thread?


    in this members make [chess] "how too" guides, and the make the basics sticky (eg. how to mate with.. when castling is legal...etc)

    And as the idea picked up pace im sure someone others will put more advanced tutorials.....but the main purpose is to stop the darn chess forum being clogged up with n00b threads.

    Basically I think that's a good idea which would make it easier to find the tutorials for those who are interested. But maybe it would work better as a tutorial section which is not open for posting, or only for posting in existing threads, to avoid that it gets clogged up with irrelevant posts / threads. Threads could either be moved to that section from the Chess Forum, or people interested in contributing could send their entries to a moderator who can post it.

    For sure, screw the proles, they can't have evrything for free.

    I think it's a great idea.

    Why not make the written tutorial posted on the forum freely available but also make some tournaments that start with set positions (like isolated d-pawn middlegames or BvN with pawns endgames). Of course the non-subs won't be able to access those, providing them with another incentive to join the site.

    There's a million and one chess tutorial sites online that scumbags can read for free - this lame suggestion would simply alienate them even more and drive them away - maybe.

    I'm not so sure on the "sub" thing; the main Idea was to stop n00bs posting the same crap (eg, "I know a 4 move mate", "is K+Q v K a draw?"😉

    The site probably wouldn't survive without us "free-loaders" playing here.

    but anyway,

    Lots of non-suscribers write or would write guides and so forth, but making it 'suscriber only' these people wouldn't even be able to post them.....

    Carrots? We get carrots? Where's mine ye tight fisted siliconised calhoons! If they had them peeled, cut into strips and served with a dip I would renew every year.

    You misunderstand;

    Imagine a two chess sites, in terms of features, etc both identical.

    Site- A) has 10,000 members

    Site -B) has 5,000 members

    which site are you more likely to suscribe to? the one with more members or the one with less members?

    My point is, us "Freeloaders" do contribute to the site, via forum posts, or just simply being another player the site can add to its roster.
