    Hey there

    I used to be an active member of chesspark.com enjoying playing games there, but I can't find chess.com as intersting and enjoyable as chesspark.com. Do you think that was a good move by chess.com owners to destroy the nice place i used to play in?

    I think that the place you were playing in was going to cease to exist and that the folks at chesspark.com and chess.com came to an agreement that would allow some degree of continuity for chesspark.com users.

    To say that chess.com destroyed chesspark.com misses the reality of the situation:  chess.com provided a home for chesspark.com users who would have otherwise found themselves in search of a new site due either to the inability, or lack of desire, for chesspark.com's management to continue to support their site and its userbase.  As a result your question should probably be posed to them, not chess.com.

    Chess.com didn't destroy the place you played in, the chesspark.com owners did.

     

     

    I wrote a long post but I cba, but I agree with what you are trying to say, the merge was a bad idea. I sure enjoyed chess.com alot more when it wasn't full by grown ups whining that the big bad wolf ate their chesspark site, buhu.

    i see this more as a monopolistic issue, chess.com trying to remove one of its competitors. chesspark was providing more to non-premium members. here in this place you can't even chat (one sentence every min. at most) unless you pay for it!

    The competitor was going away whether chess.com stepped in or not.

    I'm not saying that there wasn't anything in it for chess.com -- they get a bump in their free user-base which presumably resulted in some additional ad revenue and opportunity to convert these users to paying members plus any PR they can get out of claiming the million-plus userbase, but they also gave away a whole bunch of premium memberships in the deal and took on all of the additional workload and resource consumption (responding to forum inquiries such as this one, bandwidth, server capacity etc,) that comes with it as well.

    THX pal. its not about me! its about the whole members of this community. the moderators should not ban ppl just because they say things they dont like (or find difficult to agree with)! they even banned my IP address, but I'm here!!

    This is private property. They can make there own rules. The side effect is that they wont want to be too stringent or nobody would want to be here. I don't think that having rules against cursing, cheating, and discussion of some issues such as religion in the public forums is stringent at all. Not even a comparison the restrictions on women in Iran.

     

    So I don't really see what your problem is. These are the rules, and if you insist on breaking them you'll be banned. When you signed up you agreed to the terms of conditions. 

     

    As far as chesspark goes, they were going down, so blame them and not chess.com. It is not at all monopolistic as you suggest, FICS and ICC have more than enough market share.

    Look pal. I'm not here to discuss women issues in iran. I thought my country is the last place on earth where dictators rule. guess i found a second place.

    Even I am from chesspark.com and i used to enjoy the game there as it was

    client side user-interface but here
    its  full confusing and we cant even instantly chat with other members.


    I think diminishing of chesspark dot come have nothing to do with chess.com .



    Topic creator, I would suggest you to play *** It is same as chesspark

    dot com but with much more
     fun and it as  client side user-interface same like chess park dot com.

    You will just love it, If you don't I change my name.

    No advertising for competing chess sites allowed. Mod.
