YLCET - folding tent!

With regret I wanted to let everyone know that I've closed shop. I have put the server to rest. I wanted to thank all those that have participated and watched the tournaments we've been running for the past few months. I wish things would have turned out differently. I really do. It seems one needs ...

Re: YLCET is no more!

While this isn't your fault I do partly agree with you. We've discussed this before and if everyone knows who's going to win and often by a big margin it's not as fun to follow on a regular basis. I am sure K will return to form again. It's just a matter of time. As for YLCET, I really don't want to...

Re: YLCET is no more!

Thanks Brendan. You could be right. I've just no time for that. I have to work everyday and whenever I have free time it's either with the fam or renos, or updating the site. The monetize part, I'm not sure how other than mess it up with ads. We do have Donations button but asides from that I don't ...

Re: YLCET is no more!

You're changing the facts. Anyway, I'm not going to argue. I think what I said was pretty clear. I intend to run YLCET for as long as possible, as was my goal from the beginning. But I'm not a rich man, and far from it actually, so there needs to be a balance. When that balance comes I'll be happy. ...

Re: YLCET is no more!

@ulysses Of course it matters. It matters to me. The site was originally created for chess fans, not for me. That is its main purpose. But I don't find it fun to spend money when not many people are watching/using it. Thirty was on good days, often it was 20 and with the work myself and arun put int...

YLCET is no more!

Regretfully I am taking my chess.my2dollars.ca website down after the Super X4 tournament is finished. While this is not cut in stone I do feel that my efforts have not paid off to keep it running 24/7/365. Of course if by some miracle the fan base of 50+ average users returns by the time the Super ...

Re: YLCET - What's the next tournament?

Thank you for everyone taking the time to make suggestions.
