Today, Jaunuary 5th is my 1st year anniversary here and I am looking forward to year #2. I am just uncertain of my journey from this point here, anyone have any advice on the chess world from here on out?
I was told:
1st year=paper chess board
Happy anniversary, winerkleiner! My advice "on the chess world from here out", is to continue questioning your sanity
Lol good advice and I do. I have notice the ads here are more pronounce and are rather annoying, welcome to a no cost free ride here, I guess (the price sort to speak, to pay here).
Warning (but no big deal): on your1st anniversary here you will be swamped with ads continuously, weee
Has anyone else find that on the one year anniversary (on the exact day) these ads come 60 times an hour?
Said ads are numerous and appear in the bottem left on the screen.
To do list:
Start Guess winerkleiner's secret #2
It's a good one.
Just received a trophy from this fine site congratulating me on another year! It said I am "a long term member", it that really a long term member here? Do a lot of people leave within a year?
Chess.com deserves more respect!
A snapshot of my two years here:
438 total games
Forty-six trophies?! You mean pictures of ice cream cones and tacos?
Yes and "thumbs ups" and "good games" also, lol! I am willing to trade them for a night on the town!
life sucks then you die
Lol, worm party!
The cool part is that in two years you gained 17 rating points! So you can actually become the oldest grandmaster ever! I think Moses was something like 800 years old, but he never played chess. You'll probably have to have a ratings surge when you're 600 years old, but if you eat well and exercise then I have no doubt that you'll do it. Happy Anniversary, winerkleiner!
Lol, I might need to get that in writing to live that long, if I do you can send me a trophy?
Trysts and the Weiner both posted almost exactly one year ago on this thread.
Weiner, after a solid year on here, we need to start heading you in the direction of 1400 rating. Don't settle for less than that. And if you start cheating, by all means, don't tell us. I can't keep a secret for sh%#.
I don't ever seeing me hitting 1400 rating (can't teach an old dog new tricks), I've been asked if I want to be coached but chess is fun only, I don't take it real serious, and the coaches might only become irritated at my learning style (or the lack of). And as far as cheating, that's not my style either.
Today is my 3rd anniversary on Chess.com...and is this site better for it? Probably not, lol! One thing is for certain, my trophy list has deminished as has my IQ, (that's two things) lol. Peace boys and girls!
Wow, three years! And you gained seven rating points this past year! I'm having a vodka/tonic right now to celebrate:)
Just 7 points? Oh well, I'll have a vodka/tonic with you! I'll make them up now, no ice?
Mine has ice, and I'm on number two. The first one seems to always disappear too fast:)
Ok with ice it is! You're staying up late tonight.
Is there a link between performance in chess and general intelligence?
