Does anyone want to get together and do analysis sessions through a discord server? I don't care what your strength is. My server is based on my group name in Facebook.

Re: Why One Game/Move At A Time ...?

Wouldn't it be a weakness though to assume everyone looks at the home page? I figure it's from the list being too long and it places recently moved "Rather than" lowest time. The list on the home page is sorted by the least amount of time left, so if they're not moving in a game it will eventually m...

Re: Rating ceiling and floor.

Well I still look at this site as the same as other sites where the rating is accurate within it's own pool. But I will say this: I have been over 2300 here, when I am actually playing and not silly forfeiting, for years. I was 2400+ here when I was 1700-1800 uscf. Now that I am 2000+ in USCF indeed...

And BTW, never believe an email.. If someone has your password report it to an authority, and change your password. Potentially enlist in sites that do two factor authentication and make sure they have secure protocols.
