    I'm wondering how does chess.com make you a diamond member for life? What proof do you have to show?

    Do people really get a certificate for being, like, an NM?

    The interwebz will also tell you, the USCF and FIDE sites. Search for 'curmudgeon' and see if you find any chess.com members Cool

    But what if you drop below 2200? Is your membership canceled?

    I could be wrong, but I believe once you obtain a title it can't be taken away from you.

    Paolo don't try so hard to act like a jerk. It comes very naturally to you. Just let it flow.

    the ratio of basic members to premium members is like, 5:1. Or maybe even a bigger margin. I'm just wondering (hopefully a moderator can answer this or someone who knows better) if you lose your diamond membership if your rating drops below 2200.

    Your chess ranking is in your passport then Natalia?  I hope that means in Russia you get to the head of all the queues and so on.  Which I'm sure it does.  I don't think premiership footballers stand in many queues in England, after all. :)

    Congratulations on the Olympiad and thank you for your chess.com reports which were very exciting to read. :)

    When I think about it, it seems rather unfair to everybody else -- the NM or higher gets to have a free membership not just for a year, but for a lifetime -- they could be saving several thousands of dollars in the long term. But I guess this is chess.com's way of paying tribute to players who have achieved a high level of skill in chess, as such a thing would rarely be recognized by the general public.

    Well I suspect it is more to do with what titled players bring to the site.  We all benefit from their company and contributions and the site can expect to attract more members.
