A day in the life of a moderator

Possibly.  I don't have access to the code, so there's very little I can do with technical issues.

One thing I can suggest is to go into your live chess settings (see the orange arrow in the screenshot) and go to the last tab (the yellow arrow), and play around with the settings in there, and see if that helps anything.

If all else fails, if you contact support, they may have some ideas.  They obviously can't do this in every case, but I've heard of one instance where a staff member actually went to someone's house to investigate their connectivity problems.

"We have a daily quota system for bans and mutes" Is that true? I got a mobile phone scammer for you, MGleason.

But does Chess.com make money from mutes and bans?

No, that was a joke too.

This was one of the best jokes this year, except some political actions of Theresa May. blitz.png

There is talk of splitting the Off Topic forum into a forum for meaningful off-topic discussion and an insane asylum.

I heard a rumour once that some players were charged to come back from a ban.

  Ahhhhh........ I like THAT fomula.  Off-topic 1  and off-topic 2. Let staff decide where to park it depending on which direction the thread is going.....very interesting.  That seems to be the template of OD also. That group has split about 5 times now. I should of bought stock in that group. frustrated.png  Off-topic 2 could be used as a training ground for wanna-be-mods. How would they clean THIS up?                                                                                                                                                                     null                                                                                                                                                                                                                           OR  THIS.?                                                                                                           null

An excellent idea!

Is there any way of knowing which is the chess.com thread that has the most comments?

There actually is a way: enter in my profile, then on my activity click "Get trophies by commenting! (forum race game)" its the most commented of chess.com history.

Chess.com ruined white hints by highlighting the neue comment when you load the page, sorry man.

I hope they do make that change.  Its long overdue.  There should be a "childrens" table available.
