Today, March 23, 2008, I crossed the 1000 move mark on this site. I realize that this milestone is really only significant to me, but I still wanted to make a record of it. This is truly the best chess site I've seen, and I am glad that I can be a part of it. Somewhere on this site, I've seen the quote "What sets chess.com apart is the community" or something to that effect. I am in total agreement. Erik and Co. have done a good job of fostering and promoting the community aspets of this site. I think in the short time I've been a member here, I've spent more time on the site doing things OTHER than playing chess (posting in/reading the forums, tactics trainer, etc.) than I have spent doing similar activities on all the years spent on other sites combined. So as I mark this truely auspicious occaision :-), I hope to, at some point in the future, have the opportuity to mark my 10,000th and maybe even my 100,000 move!
