So in 4 days 1 hour(97 hours) we added 12,522 new members. This comes out to about 3,100 new members per day. This means our 2,000,000th member will join at 12:31P.M. EST on Thurday, July 1st.
The excitement is building. Will Chess.com give out a prize like it did for the 1,000,000th member?

Yes, they must have added members from some other source.

Unless Chess.com includes off-planet regions, there are not 239 countries.
There are 195 generally recognized countries (of course this is completely debatable) but chess.com recognizes some places such as scotland, taiwan, US virgin islands, etc that are normally not counted in the 195 due to the fact that they are often counted as parts of larger countries. This is without going into micro-nations, such as native american reservations.
I wonder if regions declaring independance, apply to Chess.com for recognition? Apart of the United Nations of Chess.com?
