I don't like that site at all! A few reasons:
I'm totally saying on Chess.com!!
Don't like it - don't use it.
Its an idea, but i'm not sure how it'd work or if its possible for us to add.
Why not just make "no avatar" an option?
why not get rid of avatars all together? who needs them?
I aggre, their fine if you can chose your own, but pre-picked avitars aren't a good idea.
You can choose your own username.
You can choose your own picture from a wide selection.
You can use the forums if you're a member of a club.
I know people with a pony next to their custom username.

You cant pick your own username? im guessing thats because its a friendly site?
Sorry for double posting.
you can,it just needs to be checked by staff.
I just saw this post! Yess! I have a granddaughter who is 7 yrs old, who likes to play. I have let her use my name many times, but only with a trusted friend as an opponent. I'm very pleased with this! I'll let her play a few, and I'll give you some feed back. Thanks so much for thinking of our kids. She is so excited to play games there!
I wish there was a German version of chessKid.com. My daughter (seven years old) would love this. She will have her first English lessons soon, but I fear they will not suffice ...
You can certainly have your little girl play my granddaughter here on chess.com. She would love it. Just send a message and we can set a time for them. She won't be here for a few days, so perhaps soon. It wouldn't hurt for Shay to learn some German, so we can work it out!
What is so wrong with the cute avatars they have?! MY granddaughter didnt ask to make her own..was happy with the cute kitten. Listen, kids have enough choices in other areas..why not teach them that they have to conform also? Man alive, do they have to be spoiled completely? :)
I was questioning something, however. We first made her name, then after getting the confirmation, I realize that I must make an account there, which AT THAT time, I add a child. It looks like I should have made my account first there, THEN add hers. Should I add her again there, or will that be possible, seeing she made her name first?
I love the thought, but it would be quite a hazzle to really arrange that. My daughter has no account (and I'm not sure I want her to have one yet), she also can't type (so that would hinder communication) and then there's the difference in time zone.
Yes, I see the problems with that. Just a thought :)
Really horrible that I made a test account (as kids) and give open seeks for 1200-1900 rated player in 1,2,3 days time control but it took more than 6 hours for them to be accepted. The higher rated kids may feel lonely there.
Are there anyways to get more kids there? Could there be a discount on Gold Kids if their parents were chess.com premium members?
Please consider constructing a brand new help page for the kids part of site as some of the FAQ are not applicable there.
Also I would like to repeat a point many has mentioned: all tournaments there are restricted to club(team) members would make most tourney impossible to start.
The ChessKid is really safe for kids and the kids cannot do much mischief under the setting. I appreciate this and wish this site could grow.
The idea of kids being governed by parents is excellent, but I don't like the fact that chesskid is totally separated from chess.com. Am I, as parent, expected to visit both chess.com and chesskid.com simultaneously?
Wouldn't it be better if chesskid simply offered a limited view to normal chess.com, with chat, forums, avatars etc etc disabled but with an opportunity to play chess against normal chess.com members?
Thanks Mekk. I've had a few ask this. Not sure if its possible at present, but have passed along the suggestion for you :)
a Really nice thing you've done Thank you
I joined And played a "Learning Positions vs. Computer" game
The Computer over think some times
like when i tried to get a draw in the "Rock And Pawn Basics" With this position
