Thanks Rsava. I was wondering the same thing, since i was fairly certain i had not seen a price change since i had been here.
I guess I missed it ... Did chess.com make some announcement that they were raising the membership dues? Otherwise, why start this thread? Are you just being proactive to tell them to keep the rates down "just in case" they were planning to raise them?
So, this is funny. The whole issue of this is "THE EXCHANGE RATE"! And it takes 156 posts to find it out.
Well, I think the price has indeed gone down a lot in another country such as Australia and Japan. But wait. The price stays the same, the Exchange rate fluctuates!
So, the case closes.
That's not even that.
That's the feeling that somehow he is paying too much.
The exact price has absolutely no importance : it is just too much.
OP : can you provide one criterion for "fair prize" that does not include your feelings, calling other people rice cats or complaining about your life as a working class member ? If yes, I will withdraw what I just wrote.
this as been good to see what people think. chess.com is a very good site but all i want is the price to freeze and so the poor can keep on playing by pushing it up every year membership will go down. this should not become a site just for the rice cats.
I believe Erik pointed out this "we haven't updated our prices in YEARS " in post #21.
Can you point to something that contradicts the statement that the founder of the site makes?
What information do you have that says they HAVEN'T frozen prices in the past few years?
Other people have aready pointed out what the Site Owner said in post #21 also.
But now, Roma has pointed out that the membership costs indeed have incrementally risen over recent years, and has supplied the figures.
Who is wrong here? What do other long time subscribers know about the fees from 2009 to 2013?
Is Erik lying? Mistaken? Perhaps he can clarify.
if prices have gone up, that does not necesarily mean that it is more expencive. this is because of inflation...
What I don't understand, OP, is that you may play at this site for FREE.
of course, you could always just be a free member...
