    I'll leave it to others to criticise your idea, and your spelling. Just one quick point:

    It's $30 for the year, not for one month. I personally find it to be worth every cent/penny, and would encourage you to join.

    agreed - very good value for money - I'm on for about half an hour each day - involved in clans - clan leagues - private forums - tournaments.

    $30 a year is about £20 for 180 hours gaming = about 6p an hour... probably the cheapest thing I spend my money on...

    Hey, I agree, after all surely the admins could move into cardboard city, scrounge round bins for some food and beg enough money to maintain the site while in internet cafes.

    Then we'd all be able to sit round our houses and play chess in many different ways, it'd save us all $30 a year as well, that's enough for a few drink - excellent.

    Okay, non-subs are allowed to enter a tournament. What will be the next step? That non-subs are allowed to play more than six concurrent games in order to be able to join a tournament?

    I say that if non-subs can enter tournaments, clans, unlimited number of concurrent games, etc, then I have no reason to remain a paying member in RHP.

    Earlier in this thread I resisted the temptation to ridicule your idea, and the poorly-constructed message that heralded it.

    1. There is a key on your keyboard marked shift - it enables your computer to produce capital letters at opportune times, such as at the beginning of sentences. This should not be confused with Caps Lock which often results in strings of capital letters.

    2. I suspect the maker of your keyboard has also thoughtfully provided a range of punctuation symbols. I wouldn't wish to confuse you by introducing the whole range at one time, however commas (,) and full stops (.) can be used judiciously to express your meaning more effectively.

    3. The people of Scotland can be more accurately described as Scots (with one 't', and of course a capital letter).

    4. When you want to say "they are" the traditional contraction is "they're" - "there" would more accurately describe a position. But of course, you knew that didn't you?

    5. Those with even a smattering of education in the English language may have been forgiven for wincing at your poor spelling of "ignorant". Oh, the irony.

    just stop whining, work on your spelling and just leave the site.

    I don't think that anyone really would be missing you here, plenty of whiners and cheapskates around already

    That should be:

    Save the lessons for the class, teacher.

    Any more of this and I'll have to start charging tuition fees. Maybe you should lobby your government to spend more money on education. If you want to be understood, do it verbally!
