One of my opponents just wrote something that really cracked me up! It was certainly not the first time. I bet a lot of you have had some great chats going too, whether they're banter or self-deprecation or instruction or whatever.
I think it could be very instructive and fun if, by mutual consent of course, we could make those chats public. Gotta wonder what some of y'all are saying...
no reyth, it was my buddy witch i call my friend MR. TNHEYSEED, hey tn bud did u ever get the weed from between ur teeth? hahaha come on people cheer up dont let it be so drab in here, its like a mortitions convention in here gzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I've had a couple of opponents publish our game chats in my group Chess Nuts because I beat him and he was rated 500 pts higher than me. It was a well fought battle too. He thought the chat was funny/silly enough to publish along with the moves. I didn't get much say in it, but did find it funny.
I always 'disable' the "chat" feature on Chess.com when I play live. I wonder: Is this what we in the lexicon call 'kibbutzing' (sp?)? Clearly, this is not a positive- isn't it true?
My advice, for what its worth, is metaphorically speaking keap your mouth shut. Don't make contact with your opponent, and he or she will be at a disadvantage. It matters not whether they are informed of your age, sex, location, hair colour, if you go out with a beautiful super-model (as I do gentlemen) or what you had for breakfast....goodbye and good luck.
some of these comments are the funniest! Yeah, I write things that encourage them, but that only makes the case: Shout-out to chess.com admin, you could increase, possibly double membership. Let us publish! (Besides the funny stuff which I love, the instructive stuff could make an astute reader who had never played a game into a chess-monster!
It would also be very cool if each statement were time-stamped and move-stamped, so we could see when somebody said whatever was said.
Ideal woud be: say you and I are playing, you're taking me to school and you write some instructive things, then some country-song thing happens in one of our lives, we're friends so we discuss it. Then the mood changes and I make yet another fart-joke! In my perfect world, we'd mutually agree on which portions of our chat to make public.
Right similiar to live chess where everything is visible right?
I'd prefer optional visibility. We know we're playing against generally smart folks, there are few enough of those in the world at large, so sometimes I am glad for the opportunity to discuss things privately. Usually, though, I revel in saying silly things and some of the jokes we make really are funny.
...which statement itself would not be taken seriously by lots of ordinary, intelligent people!
Next thought in my head: "put your money where your mouth is". OK then, here's an idea:
chess.com potentates graciously accede to our humble petition and agree to make chats publicly visible, but only by mutual agreement. Funny chats may be posted in a brand-new chess.com feature page. chess.com potentates make rules by which they/we decide which chats are funny, poignant, or otherwise worthy of attention. Then tell friends.
I used to do that too. I used the real board as a psychological tool to avoid blunders. Nowadays I don't feel the need to anymore though.
no, I prefer to play 3 days per move. I like to play live on a wooden board.
