We Need Chess.com Greeters!

We need more people to become Chess.com Greeters! We know that sometimes it is frustrating to have people come to the site, make 1 move, and then never come back, but for those people who stick around the Greeters are an important part of their first experience on Chess.com! (Read here => http://www.chess.com/forum/view/community/greeters )

To be a greeter all you need to do it go here and change your settings:

http://www.chess.com/home/echess_settings.html

And then be willing to play an unrated game and answer questions about the site!

Thank you!!!

    I didn't even know this was an option. I was greeting members for a breif time by leaving notes.

    I need to look around this group some more but I start greeting when the semester is over.

    i needed to get better at turn-based games, so i decided to become a greeter.

    it really helps even though their unrated, im playing much better now.

    And Dekker, max 25 games means 25 at a time.  113 is probably total.  Im at max 25 but have 89 completed now.

     

    And for the ones that cant find the button, here's a link:

    http://www.chess.com/home/echess_settings.html

     or go my home-account- online chess settings- scroll down- check greeter box

    I read this article a few weeks back, so I volunteered.  I set my max at 25 games, which quickly filled up.  However, 2 weeks later, Ive played about 50 welcome games, and maybe 5 at most are still playing 5 or more moves in.  I think we need a better opening message in the chat box for new players.

    In addition, I've gotten about 10/50 players (with varying ranges of politeness, I might add)  etiher wondering why im not online or telling me to move.  I think we should also make it more clear for them to play live chess instead and the corr. chess can take weeks, even years.

    Ranodm comment:  I dont know if we just want to have the max # of players on our site, but tons of accounts have never been used.  Deleting them would give a more accurate account of chess. com.
