Hi,

I became very busy in my life and I don't have time for any chess activity.
What is your opinion, closing the Chess2u site or keep it open to all computer chess fans and selling it and just changing the Chess2u administrator?

Ahmed Kamal,
Chess2u Founder.

if u cant pay the cost of the website. you should sell this domain. that's it. I'd do that. but if u don't have time for that. look for another administrador to help u, i have my paypal account blocked coz i no longer have a credit card to verify my account, otherwise i would give a hand

I am unable to help, but perhaps somebody else can.
Having said that, it's really your decision for what is right for you.

You can sell it now to me if you like. I'll gladly take over and keep your staff exactly where they are, as I would want them to remain anyway.

I don't have time to manage the Chess2u site anymore, and I have two options, Close or sell it
I have already received some offers but unfortunately they will change the Chess2u’s policies and will use it for illegal materials, and this is not acceptable to me. I don't care about the price, the most important to me is the reputation of Chess2u !
Or.. close it, but in the same time Chess2u is like my baby, i watched him grow up until he now has ten years and has become one of the top computer chess forums in the world, so closing it would be painful for me !
So the final decision, I am waiting for a buyer who does not harm the Chess2u name.

This is my opinion, I think this site should be closed, people registered here are only here to download chess engine and opening books in order to enter chess sites and win every game (example site Flyordie. People should learn to play chess correctly without using software and this type of site only encourages people (mostly boys and girls aged 12 to 18) to cheat in the game.

closing the site would not have any effect on people who want to cheat whatsoever my friend, simply because even if you close this one people will make another one and so on... This forum has people who make engine books and tournaments, it also has people who enjoy engine vs engine matches. Matter the fact this forum doesn't even promote cheating in the first place.

TL;DR
Anyone who decided to cheat will find a way to make it work, be this site or another one.
I mean just a simple google search shall do it smile

Hello Kamal.....Yep Chss2u must be kept open and going.....Currently there are only 3-5 Forums going at present....Talkchess.com (for mostly the old guard and programmers) Outskirts Forum (run by MZ) a nice forum but MZ blocks posts about commercial engines....Immortalchessforum.com (this forum is on and off...sometimes it is off for weeks...currently is is working this week) Prodeo Forum (Mostly for Talkchess rebels & old guard folks) and Chess2u.com forum...And thats just about it... Rybka forum is closed down..Talkchess is discussing changing their server at present.....and immortalchess could be hacked or shut down any minute...So there is no other real options but to keep chess2u going...I think Chess2u.com has been running the second longest after talkchess right now...There used to be Talkchess.com...Chessgod101.com forum... immortalchess.com forum & chess2u.com forum...as the four major players...Eman forum is dead mostly (Infinitychess) because no more Eman engines...Open chess & winboard forum has a few posters and Kyrill forum has a couple of posters...Thats about it... cool bigsmile wink
