    I see that this site now has over 5.76 Million Members and should hit 6 Million in a few weeks ( Jolly Good Show !!! ). There is a chronic complainer out there who says that this is not a true total but I'm sure that Chess.com will reach 6 Million in spite of him ( take that you CAD !!! )  lol.

    Update: Yes the chap that had the rather negative thread has been given the heave-ho, so long pal. Smile

    Is there some correlation between Chess.com's membership and the world population?

    I find a closer correlation to this population:

    The pronounced spike in chess.com membership started in about 1980 then?

    I was thinking --- perhaps a prize for the 6 Millionth person ?

    I think there was a prize for the 5th (or 4th, I've been here too long) member.

    Might cause a proliferation of bogus accounts and fuel that "other" thread you referred to.

    Well I'm not that hung up on numbers, the fact is that new members are joining all the time. That is a good thing IMO.

    Well we seem to have won the " War of the Threads ". There was a thread on the go about this site being at the 5 Million Member mark but that thread is now locked. I can only repeat my earlier comment: Take that you CAD  lol.

    Chess.com probably has a script running making "new members" everyday.

    A lot of us didn't find it amusing when they first implemented the "pictures in off-topic forums only" rule, but we have adapted.

    You're supposed to stick to irreverent images:

    That seems like a relevant image.
