    ..Chess is all about fear and psychology

    ..Chess is like an exam..... you havent studied for

    ..... but that you might have wasted that playing way too much chess

    Almost half the posts on Welcome to the Teen Forum are not by teens. What about having a thread in non-chess for Comments/Issues relating to the Teen Forum? Otherwise I suspect the teen forum itself will be overrun by adults, which might make it lively but kind of defeats the purpose...

    So far since it is only the "Welcome To Teen Forum" thread I don't think there is much danger of swamping; comments from adults on other threads have been rare (and I doubt the adults could swamp it if they tried given the pace of the teen posters.)

    However your suggestion is a good one and I will implement a version of it by moving all the comment posts by adults to the existing Suggest Teen Forum thread and renaming that thread.

    I am guessing, but maybe Ec meant Miranda's "Speedy McGee" comment. I.e., he did not see how it was a joke. The point here is I think that it almost rhymes and is a variation of sorts on Speedy Gonzales as in the cartoon.

    Yeah, I checked it out actually, because I tried to log in with the old name and It worked! The new name looks good anyway! I hope nothing changes in terms of administration, facilities, presentation etc!
