What should I do when I'm new here? 

Read the whole forum and you can post a comment here. Read the rules. ( In's in the info) And your all done! You can post a note you have any questions. 

Why am I invited? 

If you are invited by me, then it usually because you are in a club. My system of inviting is that I pick a club and I invite people from it. If you are invited by someone else then you can ask the admin why they invited you. 

 This forum/ The invite says that the club is active/ there will be always be chess events/ good reason to join TICC            The club is inactive 

Be patient. Sometime I might be busy, or something gone wrong, or some of the staff is inactive, or whatever. Stuff happen and I'm sure there is a good reason for it. If you think it is serious, then you can message me. 

Do I have to be active in TICC?

No, but we would encourage you to leave if you won't do anything in the club. Being active doesn't mean that you have check TICC every time you are in You can always do a puzzle or join a team match. 

If you have any other questions, you can message me, or post in the notes.

I'll start, I'm @TheChessKnight2000, TICC founder. I am from the USA.  I like studying history and science. I  like playing sports, reading, and biking. grin.png


Not to be mistaken, I can presume you were formerly Ravigagne?

I'm @chessdragon255, I'm one of the coordinators of this club (former) . I like playing chess and I participate in many tournaments on And I have played two fide rated tournaments on the board and two fide rated tournaments online.


I'm @Universe31, formerly Universe30, and I was formerly an admin on TICC. I created a club named Crystal Chess, but one of my inexperienced admins accidentally shut it down. I live in the USA, and I love producing music in my free time.
