I don't have a paid membership because I don't have a credit card. I don't have a credit card because I personally don't think my income and expenses are high enough to justify having one. And to be frank, I'm rather suspicious of credit cards anyway, what with the hidden fees and other stealthy nuisances the card companies tack on.
Pay by check.
Chess.com does not give the option to pay by check on it's payment page. Most websites don't because of the risk of bogus and bounced checks. I'm amazed you were able to find a site that takes checks.
I didn't do it on a site. It was nothing to with chess.
Then why mention it if you didn't pay on a website? The issue was whether or not you could pay for something online by check. I understand if you only intended it as evidence people still pay for things with checks though. And I never said I thought it had anything to do with chess.
I don't want to play more than a few games at a time and I don't care about the videos or whatever. My suggestion would be to allow people to play some games for free, say 20 to 50, then offer a lower charge to continue playing with some restrictions. For instance, only a few games at a time, no videos, etc. Charge maybe 7 to 10 dollars. Sure, other sites will allow free play but if a few thousand freeloaders like me pay up it could work. Plus other sites might follow suit. Right now I'm happy with free, but I'd pay a few bucks to play here and the site could benefit.
Isn't it amazing how this site promotes chess, but nobody really plays it?! I love the irony of that.
you still listing to abba. or maybe the monkeys. time to let go mate. embrace gaga.LOL
Lol is gaga male or female or Marion Manson? The Monkeys rule!!
Malta; I just knew you weren't from Scotland, I've lived there and never remotely met anyone as sexist as you are. Oil, is it? Big BBBBucks, lol. It makes so much sense now, phew. you planning on moving back home anytime soon?
I am assuming this refers to me, in which case:
1. I don't think I am sexist at all.
2. I don't really need your validation.
3. Where I choose to live and why is none of your business.
And finally, just go and stuff yourself.
This would make a great (fight) forum, people airing out their dirty laundry! This would definitely receive my vote for greatest forum of the year!! "Jerry Jerry Jerry"!!!
I just got it for the "BLING" next 2 my pic!!!!
Aw, so whadya gonna do about it?
Once again, AnthonyCG wins the award for outstanding achievement in the field of graphics (for post #168).
Lol I hope post #168 is popping beer nuts and not pills (just to be safe).
Okay Ruby, since you seem to be rather sensitive about this, we've commissioned somebody to look more deeply into this matter. And since he's a professional songwriter, perhaps he'll be able to write a song illustrating the troubles you and other diminutive folk have been having:
All ways ends up the same.. Whos got the biggest pole. MEN! go on, say it... you know you want to... ( I'M THE MAAA AAAN ) LOL. someone pass me some more potatoe chips.. there's gonna be blood......
Lol doesn't he sing about the vertically challenged? I think it was called "Brother can you spare a foot".
i can horizontal with the best of them.. BBBBut i was hoping for some more lazy arse excuses like mine to have a laught at. because its the only joy im gonna get here.
Perhaps I'm a bit late on this thread, but I just joined and went straight to the diamond subscription because, well because I've got more money than you can poke a stick at so why not spend a litle bit of it, eh?
awesome.LOL gotta get me smileys like those. ,my smart arse remarks will just go down alittle more cold and bitter to my victims hehe.
Some good fun being had on this forum - well done you big muppet.
I was a diamond member a couple of years ago but then stopped playing so cancelled my subscription after a couple of months of paying for nothing.
I recently enjoyed being a premium member for free (shiny turnip and all) but that only lasted 10 days. Now I miss unlimited TT and CM plus playing in as many tournaments as I like.
I would pay again but I'm currently horribly in debt and jobless - at least that gives me more time to waste on this forum.
Haha, that's about right snakesbelly.
Great film by the way.
I'm very tempted to take a platinium subscription but I've promised myself not to ever subscribe to auto-renew service. But if they make an option where it's a one shot, there is a deal for me. And I will renew every month!
Sharp as a beachball
At first it was because I didn't know how. Secondly, I thought it was a scam...99 AUD. Like 5 cents here. Have hundreds of accounts if I want. Most importanlly though , It's because my chickens hsven't laid many eggs yet :(
