titles to be place within the usernames of players

i think it would be a good idea to place the titles of players in the usernames. for example patriot_chess (CM) (NM) (FM) (IM) (GM) (WCM) (WFM) (WIM) (WGM). its to help the cheat team also. and user can know which players are titled or not.

kind regards

IF, the site's prepared to verify credentials it sounds like a great idea. Some sites will give titled players a free membership (eg. to GMs & WGMs) especially if they're prepared to use their real name as their handle (in acknowledgement that the presence of titled members tends to attract members generally, and allows for more prominent promotions such as exhibitions and simuls).

This site permits multiple handles so I'd anticipate a titled player might have an anonymous handled account they play with, and a VIP account with their name and title so that they can enjoy both worlds. Chess titles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIDE_titles

Taking it one small step further (to be more inclusive), Expert titles (EX) might be added (based on the member's local country standing (USCF, CFC, ECF, etc.). And, titled players might find the atmosphere more inviting to know which members are recognized Experts here.

Re: titles to be place within the usernames of players

Oops! I see this is already being encouraged. From a Help-Beginners' discussion earlier this morning:

"05:40 <A>: hey are there any kind of titles in chesscube??
05:40 <B>: as in NM,GM IM, etc
05:40 <Staff>: you can make them up now if you like

Now, why didn't I think of that? Problem solved! Or?
