Hi Everyone,

Over the last few weeks, we have noticed an usually large amount of trolling and smurfing within our tournaments.  I want to remind everyone what while FKCC is open to all, our primary goal remains to being welcoming and encouraging to new players to the game of chess at all ages.  As such, many of our membership is under the age of 12.  While I understand in many groups on chess.com, creating smurf accounts (Creating secondary accounts for the sole purpose of hiding your true rating and identity to others) is fairly common in many chess.com groups, it is not something I can allow to continue within this club.   

I want to ensure that we will always be welcoming to all players, regardless of rating and age.   We have players in this club from true beginners to titled players, but those players are honest about their ratings, and understand that chess.com ratings are not so important that losing a few rating points because you played a 500 one round is going to be the end of the world.

In addition, I want to remind everyone to be respectful and considerate of others within any chat and posts on here.  Please remember what you post is being read by not just your friends, but many young children as well. 

As a result of the issues over the last couple weeks, I have removed multiple accounts from the club, and have moved the group to admin approval to join for the next few weeks until the problem is under control.

Should you have any problems with a player, always contact me via private message! 

Thanks!

Coach Matt
