The idea of kids being governed by parents is excellent, but I don't like the fact that chesskid is totally separated from chess.com. Am I, as parent, expected to visit both chess.com and chesskid.com simultaneously?
Wouldn't it be better if chesskid simply offered a limited view to normal chess.com, with chat, forums, avatars etc etc disabled but with an opportunity to play chess against normal chess.com members?
I second this request, and I also have asked about this via a support ticket, more specifically, if I've paid for a Premium membership on Chess.com, it should carry over onto Chesskid.com.
I have to say the "friending" system on Chesskid.com is an outstanding idea.
wait im a kid but since im a prodigity can i make a coach account i was the teacher at a school chess club once
doesn't let you join
At last a good reason to have children!
I agree with Nam..I tried to change my credit over to chesskids,but I think your idea is far better. It should just "cover" chesskids also.
Really horrible that I made a test account (as kids) and give open seeks for 1200-1900 rated player in 1,2,3 days time control but it took more than 6 hours for them to be accepted. The higher rated kids may feel lonely there.
Are there anyways to get more kids there? Could there be a discount on Gold Kids if their parents were chess.com premium members?
Please consider constructing a brand new help page for the kids part of site as some of the FAQ are not applicable there.
Also I would like to repeat a point many has mentioned: all tournaments there are restricted to club(team) members would make most tourney impossible to start.
The ChessKid is really safe for kids and the kids cannot do much mischief under the setting. I appreciate this and wish this site could grow.
your right i cancelled my chesskid account everyone there plays like a 600
Someone revive this thread !!!!!!!!
My grandkids will love it
The top rankers are not, but most others plays WITH THE ATTITUDE of 600.
Sorry, I really dislike those who play with 1R1Q1N less to see his king about to be excecuted or hope for hospitalization of opponent. While this trains us to be patient and careful, too much of this is just mundane.
Also I beg the staff to make conditional move. At least, at least allow one move premove to speed up the part of game with narrow path or dead end.
very nice to know that there is chess site specially designed for kids, chesskids.com
I actually have been playing on chesskid.com for a year,and I just have a question about its re-design,will it be having all the features of chess.com?And will it have some more advanced chess lessons?
Abscence of tournament for free members/ without chess club make this site boring.
The site will attract intruders who are over 75. That will balance out the under 7's who play on chess.com here.
if somebody has chess.com n chesskid.com account, may two account be linked by a certain method.
may you provide 3 categories kids, parents n coach in the account type.
It is not possible.
wwoooww... sooo nice to hear
