Yo, I been here over 2 years and my mate for over 3 years. We both occasionaly go to live chat and it sucks how you only allow paying members to chat and non paying members can only chat once a minute. You really should consider allowing valued players to chat whether they are paying you or not. In other sites they have a similar setup though the 60sec is for newbs only. If the reason for this outrageous setup is to make a buck it's lame. But if it's some other reason I'm all ears.
Yeah I think that's all :P
Every setup on a for profit site is meant for the owners to make a buck. Describe how the setup could be changed so you and your mate start paying. Believe me they are all ears.
chess tactics says no more problems available I pay for this why cant you add more problems or correct the situation??
More do get added. Do you go back over the ones you fail?
"if the reason for this outrageous setup is to make a buck it's lame".
Q1-how do you expect a site as extensive as this to operate without cashflow?
Q2-is the owner/founder not entitled to make a profit given the investment they have made?
Q3-will you continue to go through life expecting free handouts and whine when you don't get them?
Nothing in life is absolute except death and taxes. Also, most of the trolls are free members; moreover, they are trying to prevent the trolls from chatting as well.
The Live Chess "Main Hall" chat room does have the 60 second limitation, but if you and your friend initiate a private chat while there, I believe there is no longer a 60 second limitation. As well, the Debate chat room does not have the 60 second limitation.
@ruylopez1751 ,- i concur;the more responsible members tend also to be paying members.
