What are we waiting for, assembled in the forum?

The forum is the proper meeting place for all players who want to leave a message to the community of PlayChess.de. You are welcome to join the various categories, post a new message or reply to an existing one.
There is a link at the bottom of your home page (first column, third line) Forum discussions which opens the page with all recent posts, or older posts with a reply within the last three days.
Click a thread. Following the original message, you can find a "table of contents" with all associated messages. Most recent posts have a yellow icon.
You may visit the lobby where all categories (conferences) are mentioned. Unfortunately there is no link to the lobby from the "Reading new or recent messages" page (Hello Thomas, how do you do today?) but at the bottom of a specific thread you can find a drop down menu that redirects to the forum's lobby home page. You need to select a category in order to post a new message. There is a "post" link on top of the page.


From my experience I suggest that all messages should be short and compact so that they can be easily read. Avoid empty lines between paragraphs.
I also suggest that you click "enter" every second line, so that the readers do not have to scroll the page horizontally to read your message.
When you "reply with quote" to a message, make sure that you edit the original text, leaving only the significant point that you want to reply to. The "Message" box cuts lines short (only 50 characters) and your reply might become too long, which is sometimes uncomfortable for the reader to follow.
