                                                           I was told:

    1st year=paper chess board

     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).

    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!

    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!Laughing

     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:)
