There has been a large number of cash outs thus far, many of which have made Cubers very happy. I would post a list although I'm concerned about any privacy issues they may have. If you have successfully cashed out, you may however post your name here if you feel you would like to do so.
Users who are banned when cashing out is simply due to the fact that all cash outs are verified by ChessCube staff. Remember, when cash is involved, it increases the number of cheats who want to get their hands on easy money. Many of the previous cash out requests have come from cheats who have either been sandbagging or using engines to essentially rob legit players of Crowns. There is no secret in this. It's seen in Tournaments all the time. So to put it midly - ChessCube bans users who cheat their way to ChessCube Crowns, before are after cashing out.
ChessCube is clamping down on sandbaggers - we have recently added more "manpower" to the existing cheat administrators in our staff, and bans have significantly increase.
A message to cheats - there's no point in what you're doing. You will be caught out sooner than later. Not only are we monitoring your games, the honest side of the ChessCube community is actively reporting you.
So.. again, if you have cashed out and have received your cash (there are tons of you) - feel free to post your experience if you so choose.
Note - to report cheats (engine users, self players, sandbaggers etc) - send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or hit "Report Abuse" from the game.
Thanks and happy playing!
