    Point of order ! ( " The Chair recognizes old cabby " ): Is reviving a dead thread just as serious a matter as reviving a live thread ?

    From some sources it seems like all you have to do in America is to literally get to 2200 USCF one time, and even if you drop below it you still retain the title.

    This is absolutely true. The sole requirement for becoming NM in the USA is to reach 2200 USCF one time (it need not even be published).

    Yes, it would vary.

    The only countries where the standard might be substantially different would be very poor countries with small federations and little organized play.  There the process might be broken, or never built in the first place, but no serious federation is going to risk its credibility by handing out phony titles.

    To-wit:  Your average NM from the United States or Canada (Like our own Andy Clifton) would be a much better chess player than your average NM from Tanzania or South Sudan?

    Yes, agreed.

    a NM norm is for 2200(FIDE)and up after you have done that it stays a NM until you get your rating to the next norm
