    Oh man, only 888 left after this post.  I think this should count, as 888 left until a tshirt is a pretty cool number.  Not to mention the fact I will actually say something worthwhile.

     A shirt I would definitely get would be
    (front) I challenge you to...
    (back) a game on chess.com!
    or
    (front) Shhh!  I'm studying 1.a4 theory!
    (back) Yes, I'm joking.

    Does winning a correspondence-type game on Chess.com also get a player points? (Or drawing/losing?)

     

    And how about sending very polite messages to the Chess.com staff? Wink

    playing games don't currently give you points, but they should! good point! sending polite messages will make your mother proud, but won't get you points.

    And can members steal points from eachother or trade points for other stuff? Wink erik, if you give me 200 of your points, I'll let you play me one correspondence game! Isn't that a great deal?!

     

    If the site grows bigger it might be an idea to actually award people with alot of points prizes, for example make a store where people can but stuff with points. Of course that would only be doable if the site were paid, but then it would also be a nice idea Smile

      Ok, how about if I get 2000! Do I get a book, chess board or something cooler.What did Billwall get?

    How about something for 100 points? (Coincidentally I'm at 100 after this post!) If 1000 points is a complete chess set, then 100 points should be three pieces Wink

    erik

    yes. for reals. bill, message me your address and your shirt size and which one you want!

    There is always the option to go to the "Member Store" and buy your own Chess.com shirt. There are many high quality shirts there at reasonable prices.

    Do we pay in points, like on some poker sites the more points you collect by playing(with real money) the more you can buy.

    Stop calculating materialistic would-be achievments. Just play. Are you here for something else than chess?
