    I wonder how many people on chess.com are from where they say they are,if anyone knows how to find out could they please tell me.

    I sometimes wonder how many of them are even from Earth. Certainly, some of the opponents that I've played seem to be from outer space.

    I think you are discouraged from using your real name (unless you are a titled player) so an angry opponent doesn't come looking for you. Likewise, I would assume there is no way for you to find out where people are really at. Another chess site I know of, there is a player who lists Antartica as his home. While it's possible that he is a bored researcher, I doubt it. Of course you CAN use your real name. Perhaps discouraged is too strong a word. Perhaps they just give you that option because of the internet being what it is.

    Yeah. Let's use your IP. Then I will grab TOR or a proxy and be from Memphis on Monday, Manila on Tuesday, Oslo on Wednesday, Shanghai on Thursday, Timbuktu on Friday, Capetown on Saturday and Bogota on Sunday.

    Using the IP adress is actually a good idea.

    Tried all of them.

    Klingons - Bad idea, if you play 1.e4 they feel insulted and the only way to decide the game is with Bat'leths.

    Vulcans - They only accept challenges in 3d chess for which the rules are unknown to us so you'll lose.

    Gallyfreyans - You may try, but they always travel back in time to change the opening theory and maybe even the moves you've played so that is a really hard game. There's only one being known for beating a time lord in a strategical situation, K9, but the outcome of the game is still unknown.

    Happy new year!
