Who's the best of your friends?
Read what members are saying!
I've noticed as I approach my second anniversary on chess.com, that a lot of my friends I've met on chess.com when I first joined in 2010 and 2011 are gone.
Many of chess.com's older members are getting inactive and we are now getting newer ones. I think chess.com is getting slightly inactive every year. What's your opinion?
I realized many people abort games, resign, abadon, etc. also, many peoples' accounts are closed.
I agree. It seems like there are plenty: checkmateibeatu, ilikeflags and a lot other ones.
Most chess players pick the game up and put it away from time to time - some for a couple weeks, others for months, and some put it away even for years. But we always come back to it because it's such a great game and it's never out of fashion.
A lot of the active members are kids and teens that have gotten busy with personal problems and have had to leave the site
Thanks for your comments guys :) I will post this in a forum soon.
Alot of the old leaders of the site got caught cheating. They slash accounts by the hundreds every month to get rid of cheaters. But also, I think your right many honest players seem to have left the site too.
I have about 70 "friends" on this site, only 20 of whom are still active here. There will always be turnover. People come and often stay for a while before they go, and that is the important part.
I've recently noticed many more people abandoning games when it is obvious that they have lost. I also recently experienced someone cursing at me when they were losing pieces. Perhaps that rudeness is causing people to leave. It certainly makes it a less desirable place to play chess - but it's still the best one I know of.
