OzChess - Australia's Chess Forum FAQ


How to Register

Registering on OzChess is easy and free of charge. All you need is an email address. Simply click the Register button at the top and fill in the required fields. Before you will be allowed to post, however, you will need to verify your email address by responding to an email sent to you immediately upon registering.

What are the Benefits of Registering?

Registering is free, but apart from that there are several benefits to having a registered account. Having an account will enable you to:
  1. Post in any forum on any open thread;
  2. Shout in the Shoutbox, have discussions there, and view the Shoutbox archive;
  3. Send and receive private messages (with generous storage of 250 messages);
  4. Search the OzChess forums;
  5. Become invisible so that only OzChess staff can see when you are logged in; and
  6. See whose online and what they are doing (unless they are using invisible mode).

Are There Obligations if I Register?

No. You don't need to post or shout or do anything else that you don't want to do. We do ask, however, that you be civil in your dealings with others if you decide to post and shout.
