Non-Members should be able to make clubs and promote to SA

Meower

I think the fact that normal members cannot be SA or make a club makes me angry. People who don't pay the site do not have the capability to make a club that they enjoy in? To chill out and also have fun? Not only that, normal members also can't be SA. In a lot of clubs, I am much more active than most of the SA, and I do much more. But guess what? I can't demote members or manage the club at all. I can only post news and do vote chess. I think this is really unfair and should be changed.

Unknown.. chess.com needs some incentive to encourage people to pay ... it's how they make a living also ... fairly sure you would  want to get paid for your work. It's not expensive to get  the lowest tier membership... The highest level membership in Australia costs around 2 take away coffees a week ... well worth it really

Meower

Well, certain people cannot do that. I cant persuade my parents to buy me a cheap membership, and I cant do it myself. Im 12

Parents sometimes know best ... you won't be 12 forever ..

Yea since chess.com went from v2 to v3 they have been trying to force people to pay at the high levels.

I think It's unfair too. Sometimes the club members are more active than the club SA!

Meower

(Everything on the internet just be like) V1- 3 things membership V2- 10 things membership V3- 50% things membership V(something over the 10s) The only thing not member is joining the game

Meower

Geez thanks says the most wonderful admin that does lots of stuff for their club

FireInMyHeart

But what can we do about it? This is one of chess.com's ways of staying a site! This site and everything on it costs money and lots of time.

That's a bit rude WeakLava.
I can understand Unknown's concern. Not all of us have spare money to buy premium memberships

you want to hijack one of the clubs you're in?

Meower

@WeakLava I wasnt trying to be rude. I simply wanted to state my concern. "Throwing a fit when he dosen't get it his way" Geez. Was I mad? No. I was speaking in a passive way, simply trying to benefit not only myself but other people. If you're going to be so rude to people who weren't rude to you, I'm not the right person to bully

Meower

@gambit-man No, I simply want to help the club be more beneficial by demoting some unactive admins/SA

Meower

It was a way of speech. If you want to act like I did something majorly wrong, I can change it. Geez

that would be for the SA to decide...

why didn't you set up your own clubs when @Depic gifted you membership?

@UnknownMeower
You only need one month's membership to get that club owner and Superadmin stuff
done for yourself.
After the month's up ...  and you're no longer paying - you still stay club owner of whatever clubs you've created - and if you're a superadmin you stay one.
One month costs $14 bucks or something like that.

But now here's the catch ...
whatever credit card info was used to pay that $14 ...
chess.com will try to use it again the next month.
Would be quite a hassle to have to cancel the card just because of that.
But your parents or whoever could ask their bank to change the credit card number -
right after paying just that one first month.

@gambit-man I did make my own club. I joined the Surviv.io club, and within 2 days, I managed to get promoted, and then I started posting a lot of news. I post much more than anyone else in the club (other than @Chess4lifeUS)

Meower

@playerafar My parents aren't paying for some website that they don't trust. My parents paid for Just Dance Now and got scammed, fished, and lost their credit card info. Also, admitting to what you said, yes, it would be quite a hassle

Well yea..."I think the fact that normal members cannot be SA or make a club makes me angry."

The definition of rude has changed i guess.  I agreed with you that your get angry easily.  I don't see how that is being rude. 

 

Okay. I'll say 'I'm dissapointed' (but wait you'll say 'well you're dissapointed easily'
