MadCast: Chess

Intro - Chess

Recommended Posts

Hey! I’m Chess! I’m really happy that I have the opportunity to apply to become a Full Member here. @MadCast: doublestufforeoyou introduced me to this amazing community after we played a few Among Us games together. I’ve also attended a Social Saturday with @MadCast: Kitty Stark and had a lot of fun playing with her and the other members who attended. I’ve played Among Us with @MadCast: horsedolphin3, @Jay, @MadCast: Qrow, and a bunch of other members a few times, too. I’m really excited to play more games in the future!

 

Time to talk about me! I really enjoy playing a multitude of games. I like social deduction games like Among Us and Town Salem, strategy games like XCOM 2 and Chess, party games like Jackbox and colonist.io, multiplayer games like Don’t Starve Together and Stardew Valley, and mobile games like Genshin Impact and Identity V. My current favorite games to play are Among Us and XCOM 2, but I’m always open to playing new games. I also really like anime- my current favorite is Astra Lost in Space, which is Among Us but in anime form (also has great intersex representation). I really like cats, and when I have free time I foster kittens from non-profit organizations so expect kitten photos.

 

I can’t wait to make new friends and hang out with the friends that I have already made, and I’m really thankful that I’ve been given the opportunity to join this amazing and welcoming community!

You are now a candidate for Full Membership. When in Discord, please wear the [C] tag, as in [C] Chess. Additionally, you now have access to #candidates-chat. Please find a Candidate Coordinator on Discord (myself, @MadCast: Kitty Stark, @MadCast: Mike, or @MadCast: Kal) for a full introduction and initial question and answer session. In one month the Senior Full Members will vote on your membership. Should you pass, you will become a Full Member. You will then be required to wear the MadCast name tag, in your case, MadCast: Chess. Should you fail, you may reapply and the candidacy period will begin again.

A few tips for a successful candidacy:

  • Be regularly active on the forums! Try to check it at least a few times per week and participate in topics that interest you. Share anything you find interesting, because odds are someone else will too! Forum activity is an important component of successful candidacies.

  • Join our Discord Server! Even if you don’t or can’t use voice chat, you’re welcome to listen in. Playing games with members on our server is a good way for them to get to know you on a personal level.

  • Attend events hosted by MadCast that have many people in one place that you can meet and leave a good impression on.

  • Use the same username on the forums and Discord, as well as in-game, when possible. If you aren’t able to do this, make sure that the members you play with know who you are. They can’t leave comments on your thread if they don’t know which one is yours!

  • If you have any issues you can contact one of our RFMs or SFMs. Feel free to post general questions regarding the candidacy process and community in the Discord #candidate-chat channel. Full Members will be able to satisfy most of your curiosities about the basics of being a part of MadCast.

If you have questions regarding your candidacy or the process to become a Full Member, please attempt to contact current Candidate Coordinators via #candidate-chat in Discord first. If your concern has to do with conduct or issues with another player, feel free to reach out to an admin. 
 
Last but not least, the requirement for you to even be eligible to be voted on

Welcome!

I haven't played much chess in the past two decades, just the odd game here and there, but I did successfully play competitive chess when I was very young (ie. age 7-10 years old).  

What platform or App do you use for online chess?

I used to play competitive chess too when I was younger! I don't have a set online mode of playing chess, so if you have any suggestions I would love to possibly play with you!

Welcome! I've tried Chess a couple times, but haven't gotten very far into the understanding before giving up XD.

Maybe I'll try again soon.

I don't have any suggestions, which is why I was hoping you might lol.  Something I'll have to look into.
