Winner of Advertised Team_March2012: No team as of yet! ★☆
About Me: I play chess solely for two reasons: my parents, and just for the fun of it! A few years ago, my parents introduced me to the game of chess. They believed that chess would exercise my brain, and get me thinking. As a matter of fact, it happened to do just what they wanted. ツ
I serve Chess.com as one of its twenty-two language translators. We are currently working on internationalizing the website! If you know someone who speaks another language, has a lot of time, and is willing to help Chess.com, then please feel free to contact me for more information!
I am a proud admin/SA for multiple teams on Chess.com, a few of them being THE POWER OF CHESS [Admin.] and Chess Unlimited [SA]. If you read my Occupation, you'll see the amount of teams I serve in as admin. or SA. Thank you!
If any of you were wondering, I am a French translator! I also speak German, Italian and Spanish! Feel free to leave me a note or send a private message! I'd be glad to converse with you in a different language.
Joining Your Group: I help manage over 30 groups as super-admin or administrator [Admin: 7; Super-Admin: 24]. I will only join your group if you offer me a job as admin or SA [super-admin]!Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused! If I do not reply or join the first time I receive your message, then please do not send it again! [Note: No longer accepting group invites, unless you are a really close friend!]
Joining My Groups: I own numerous teams on Chess.com, two of them being The Optimum and The Chess Olympics. Let me explain these teams in more detail:
The Optimum: The Optimum has weekly raffles, debates and much more! Furthermore, we have great photo albums, including an album of chess openings. Moreover, we even have game analysis and free lessons every Wednesday, as well as Video Lessons! We also have Study Groups for numerous different openings, as well as other events! I think this group is great for anybody, so come join!
The Chess Olympics: The Chess Olympics is Chess.com's newest team match league. Our tournaments are organized in a unique format, although we have loosely based our system on traditional tournament structures. If your team has 50 - 1000 members, then please, come join and register your team!
Monthly Update: Hey everyone! Optimum has been off to a great start, here in 2012! We currently have 160+ amazing members, and can't wait to see what this new year has in store for us!
Last Profile Photo Change: December 19, 2011 - I'm using an avatar that, I think, matches with my new theme! Which brings me to my newest profile feature...
Last Profile Theme Change: November 28, 2011 - Hey everyone! I'm currently using the Optimum theme by "The_Chess_Ninja". If you would like to preview and possibly use this theme, then please do so yourself in "account" or contact me for further information.
My Friends: Over the course of my stay thus far on Chess.com, I have come to meet great people. Some of the very many that I have befriended are "The_Chess_Ninja", "MALVINSTARDUST", "Matthew455", "Funandniceisme", "Skofe", "Pawnpusher3" and many others! All of these great Chess.com members have done so much for me. I feel it is only right to thank them. Thank you, all!
Joining Team Matches and Vote Chess: Sorry, but I am no longer taking personal requests for joining group matches. I currently have 100+ games in progress, which is a little more than I can handle. I will join vote chess, however, so send those on in!
Amount of Chess Games in progress: 106
Invitations for Tournaments: I will only join tournaments that allow vacation time and have at least 3-days per move!
Number of Tournaments in Progress: 10 [No Tourney Invitations Please]
Cool .GIF Images and Photos: Hey everyone. Here are some .gif images I found.
