    Notice the woman titles. WCM, WFM, WIM and WGM.

    WCM: 2000
    WFM: 2200
    WIM: 2300
    WGM: 2400

    WC (World Champion) is also a title. 


    there is no WCM just CM,RM, then WFM is presented to women. 

    There is WCM. Dude, you're gonna have to beleive me!

    Doesnt it seem off that the women's titles are lower? are they expecting them to be dumber than men? May be true, but sooner or later the feminists are going to get mad.

    Women play less in tournaments than men. They are trying to popularize it for women by making it easier to get titles.

     Why would you pick wikipedia to prove me wrong when some of that stuff is false anyway. Get the info from a more resouresful site. Like I said there is no WCM. I have women chess players in the area I use to live and they said the same I'm sure they would know.

    Open mouth, insert foot..... I guess FIDE knows even more than the women that live near you.

    It was revealed yesterday that FIDE is engaged in consultation talks about the possibility of creating new titles. Mindful of the view that titled players may be ambassadors for the game and that the wish to attain the status of Master produces greater endeavour amongst younger players, FIDE is in discussion of the possibility of creating the titles of GP (Grandpatzer), IP (international Patzer), FP (Federation Patzer), and CP (Candidate Patzer). It is thought that if these titles are introduced, some national associations such as the USCF and the ECF would follow suit with the introduction of the title NP (National Patzer).

    At present it is unclear as to how these titles are to be awarded but amongst the proposals are those based on the rating system whereby a Grandpatzer might, for example, attain his or her title by achieving the GP norm, a FIDE rating perhaps of 800 or less, in three tournaments.; an International Patzer would receive a title after three tournaments in which a rating of hypothetically 1000 is obtained; and so forth. Another model for how these titles might be awarded is based on the idea that the norm for an International Patzer, for example, is attained if it can be demonstrated that the candidate has dropped or hung three pieces without compensation in one single FIDE rated tournament. In short nominations would be based less on ratings than on other criteria.

    It has also been proposed that the titles of WGP, WIP, etc. be created for female players. Amongst some women in the game this has already caused concern as in the ratings based model the proposed norms for WGP, WIP, etc. are 200 rating points higher than those for their non-gendered equivalents.

    We understand that some players' groups have already approached chess.com to discuss possible modification to the site's policy on titled players. It is hoped, for example, that, should the FIDE proposals be ratified, the site will acknowledge this on production of the players title certificate by placing the initials of the title in question in bold red before the player's username, as for example in GP Karpark, IP KID_Garish, FP SonofChunder2, CP TheOldBlob, WGP freeky_chicky, etc. It is already believed that site staff are receptive to the idea of placing forum posts by holders of these new titles on distinctive colored backgrounds, just as the site does for posts by Masters. However whereas posts by Masters presently boast beige backgrounds, those of titled Patzers will, it is mooted, appear with shocking pink backgrounds. Chess.com staff wouldn't be drawn, however, on the question of whether these new titles would entitle their holders to free premium memberships.
