  • It's an idea though to make it easier on newbies. What do other people think?

  • @checkmategnome: I know, that's why there's also a Rank Progression contest every month. Something that the Top 3 would never be able to win. You came in 5th on that contest. So close! ;)

  • I propose the current scoreboard ends at December 2015. Then the top 3 spot earn a trophy for their work. Then a new scoreboard starts in 2016.

  • With the current scoreboard, some people with low winning percentages are dominating the top spots because of playing so many games and new members are locked out of the top spots.

  • I thought we might be able to learn how to play some new openings that we wouldn't usually play in our own games. Make sure to join the 3 latest vote chess games! They will be awesome. ;)
