Quite a few of you have shown interest to have their own personal instant chess club account, but not everyone replied that I thought would. Is it safe to assume that the following people playing in the ladder tournament want an instant chess account for online play? We will eventually use this account to play games and tournaments online. We also can play each other online and reivew each others games. We may also use this account to play each other online if we cannot make it to the meetings.
Remember, if 50% of our members fail to use the account, we will lose the team account. Also- I am paying for this account out of my own pocket- and I don't want to lose the the accounts if they are not be used.
Folks that are participating in the ladder system that have not indicated whether they want an instant chess web account. If you see your name on this list, please respond one way or the other:
Folks that have already confirmed that they will use the account. If your name is on this list, I will sign you up when I have heard from the others:
Free team Instant Chess Accounts
I am trying to sign the club up for a team instant chess account. The account will be set up for each member for his or her own use.
a.. The account will allow each member that has a team account to play chess for free online at any time- day or night.
b.. The account will provide each member with a ranking
c.. You may choose the type of game that you would like to play
d.. You can search for a game with players between certain rankings (i.e. play a beginner or master)
e.. It will allow you to chat and play with people from different countries
f.. You can watch others play
g.. Will archive all of your online games
h.. You can play different variants such as Fischer Random Chess.
Also, the instant chess account will allow us to have online tournaments with other colleges in the area. This is the main reason why I am trying to get the account.
If I am successful with my plan, you will not have to pay anything. There are a few caveats however. If you want a team account, you must use it at least a few times a month. If half of the members don't use the accounts that we provide, the whole team will lose all accounts! It is quite important that you actually use it.
So, if you will actually use the account, and want to participate in the inter college-competitions later this year, or just want to have a account for your own personal use, please let me know ASAP! I will need your first and last name.
Have a great weekend!
