I want to get membership but don't know which one to choose. It is confusing?

Hey guys,

Ok I want a membership where I can do at least "5 lesson per day". What I'm looking at is the "old lessons" section. It has openings, endgames, strategy,tactics,endgames. I'm not interested in the new lessons yet. My problem is gold membership says 25 puzzles per day and no mention about how many lessons per day. It just says interactive lessons, beginner. Does that mean if I choose gold membership I can only do beginner lessons. I'm confused? I want to do "old lessons" section openings,endgames,tactics, endgames all levels. Thanks

It is confusing.

The old membership benefits gave 3 of the old lessons per day to gold, 5 to platinum and unlimited to diamond.  I would guess that still applies to the older Chess Mentor portion of the lessons.

If your only reason is the old lessons, you should contact support. It is possible those will be removed at some point.

Really? That would be a shame. They are well written lessons. They don't take up a lot of space.

Hey thanks for the replies. I find the "old lessons" better structured. It gets to the point quickly, new lessons take too much time to get to the point. I don't know why the staff has decided to remove them. Ok I will contact support, but I posted here because I thought the admins of this forum will know the answer.

It is possible a staff member with direct knowledge will see this, but it is more likely to be seen with a ticket. I know I've seen at least one post where a staff member mentioned they were going away, though those plans may have changed.

I know they stopped lesson ratings but I thought they would keep the old lessons available.

I sent in a contact form and hopefully will hear back.

I agree, I would go Diamond. No Limits then.
