    I rarely look at the chat in the bottom of a tournament page. I speak to the people I play against. As far as the NM goes, there are lots of NM/IMs playing in tournaments. Dont be afraid of a title, just means they play real  tournaments too.

    Is anyone aware that there is an NM playing in this tournament?

    And I'm just curious:

    MeldonRistar keeps us waiting a long time before he moves. Not that I'm losing my patience or anything, but like I said, I'm just curious. Why does he delay moving? Does he have many games to play? Is his workday busy, or what?

    Okay, but the unpoliteness due to absence of response was paul-r's point. I added the "chess is a friend-making environment" point to his response. 

    As for your first few statements, I acknowledge them. As for your last statement, I meant the environment of chess in general -- not just this site -- is a friend-making environment. 

    I won't go too detailed about these matters. Just my clarification.

    hello,

    This site has a smartphone application, when you use this, which i do, you cannot respond to THIS chat, if you only use the app that is. 

    So saying playes are unpolite cause absence of respons sounds unpolite to me.

    When you are playing 30-40 games at the same time its not easy to respond to each and every approach. However, personaly i respond to everything directed directly to me.

    Not everybody is here to make friends, there are other sites more suitable for that.

    and you're very polite too.

    see you soon.

    Precisely,

    In a way, all of our statements are true. Chess is the centre of meaningful fun that should be enjoyed both in formal and casual environments with strangers and friends--and making new friends along the way.

    It's a shame that people don't take full advantage of such a multi-dimensional game.

    vulpes,

    thanks for response.

    just a precision. i don't say that to make friends.

    here is not only my way to make friends....

    Just that people make polite to each other. Simple, no ?

    thanks to note.

    Thank you for your response. I myself was also surprised of said absence. Chess is one of many environments in which friends are made. However, one cannot make friends if they lack the will to interact.

     

    Paul-r, I second your two statements.

    hello,

    i'm fine.

    just a word to say that i'm surprising by the absence of very elmentary politesness of majority of players.

    when someone say hello. i don't undertand the silence who come after.

    i do not ask everybody to be friend, just be a little polite.

    yes, i'm not a very serious chess player..it's not my life

    your network will win to make this, i think.

    see you soon.
