ignorancy is also a way to look at history.
GERONIMO WAS A GREAT WARRIOR! if he took your scalp you knew it!
The OP made a reasonable request in this forum,"Help and Support" and got neither.
Aren't these forums moderated?
Some people liked the idea. I hope it gets some interest from people on this site, then it might be implemented.
One guy from Malta tried to boost his lacking confidence and balls though with offtopic and trolling childish arguments.
It is pretty simple I like humour of people I know or have read about, if I don't know them it sometimes gets on my nerves. Especially if it is lacking this twists and is plain and ridiculous as yours.
If any of the foregoing represents "humour", then I'm first in the queue for the bypass.
btw the poem was from Heinrich Heine and shows the Illusion of Irony.
That is brilliance, you should be locked in a Tower in Valleta for your attempt to show Twists, Irony and Humour.
I am not making myself a slave of something I like to do.
You like to be funny, you are not, but keep on going and disturbing people, so you basically enslave yourself with something you are bad at. Good Luck with that.
Yes. That is what I meant: -- "nationalities"--. It is possible and you can count "countries" played-
It is done in ChessWorld, a club based in England.
Of course, you have to select a country (nationality, flag) as a base so that you can call the other party "foreign".
In this case of Chess.com the base country would be USA-
ChessWorld makes it an important issue how many "flags! have you played and gives you a special tag (or whatever you call it) for that.
There are players that would like, or do like, to play with far away people.
it would be a nice feature to have, maybe under game history
A good start would be putting the player country in the PGN's.
Thanks to all those that agreed with my post, specialy to VivaChe. . . and you, Admins. . ., what do you thimk about it, besides "We will consider it"?
Chess is not craps (dice). Chess is based on reasoning not on luck. Therefore Chess is a cultural act. Knowing nations, or about nations, is culture too. A chess club should be more than a "meeting" place to play. . . it can be used as a cultural expansion activity.
Tell you something. Thanks to a chess club in Internet, and browsing through the "foreing" players listings, I found three friends whose addressses I had lost (Venezuela, USA, Filipinas)
Yes but on a chess site the main common interest is usually chess.
Or are you also interested in playing against people with different ethnicities, sexual orientation and favourite breakfast cereals?
I am sorry, ciljettu, but the common interest of a world wide chess site is to play against many people: people with different strengths, styles, and nationalities.
Turning into a troll over such a silly thing is not only foolish- it's undignified.
