No, I don't see it as an incentive to subscribe; maybe as an incentive to [b]use this site..........rather than other sites. [for some people, but to me it's an irrelevancy][/b]
I agree with Dr. Strangelove. The Games Explorer should include games from all players, including non-subscribers. This would benefit everyone.
At the moment, it's not possible to look up the games of anyone who is rated below 1400, or is a non-subscriber, or has joined the site since October 2006, when the Games Explorer was last modified. So this is one area in which non-subscribers have an advantage over subscribers. They can look up our games and find out what we play in the opening, but we can't look up theirs!
If the Games Explorer was kept up to date (updated at least once a month) and included the games of non-subcribers, than it would be a really powerful and useful tool. It's not too bad now, but could be much better.
