    Love the site, played free for a year and wanted to use all the features to help improve my game. Love Danny Rensch's videos and bullet brawl commentaries. I love this site. They have bugs but I know the chess.com team is working on fixing them, and they will. Keep up the good work, and also, I think letting people play for free eventually leads to them becoming paying members. It did for me, same with other apps I have paid for - you keep bumping into that "ceiling" that only members can get above (i.e., using certain features) anf finally you break down and buy it.

    Danny Rensch's videos and the nonsense stream of gibberish that comes out of his mouth is entertainment that cannnot be found elsewhere.

    I don't have a video, but I can explain why I have a diamond membership:

    1.) Daniel Rensch's videos are the best of the best with humor and much education as far as how a higher rated player thinks

    2.) Tactics Trainer is extremely useful and get's you thinking accurately, espeically before you play a game

    3.) I'm on the site everyday, why not support it?

    I dont use the site facilities that much, in my case its mostly a bribe to the staff so they don't boot me for endless trolling.

    It seems to have worked so far, I mean, my account has never been suspended suddenly without any wa

    I just love Chess Mentor.  I often go through a lesson, and then find an immediate idea for a current game.  Explorer helps to avoid bluders in the opening that can ruin the entire game from the very beginning.

    If the opponent makes a move outside the norm, I look carefully on how that move is weak and how to take advantage of it.

    I feel that if I am serious about chess, I have to be a premium member.

    Unlimited Tactics Trainer.  My pattern recognition skills have improved quite a bit.

    I am not going to be a premium member for long unless I can figure out how a game that was supposed to be unrated brought down my rating.  There is no way I would have played it the way I did if I thought it was rated!!!!!

    There is a secret cabal of mods who intentionally cause people to lose rating points if they run around claiming they are premium members when they really arent.

    I am a member because I'm terrible at chess, and I have money problems....

    Because I have the money and love the chess mentor lessons. You learn so much about so many different openings, themes and motives that I just couldn't ignore it.
