Hey guys! 
This is not ChessMood community, this is ChessMood family, were everyone grows, we have fun and help each other. 
Unfortunately, there are people who violate our rules, terms of conditions or try to trick our system generating moodcoins. 
All such members will be banned. 
Very unfortunately, this month we had 9 such members, who are banned from ChessMood. 

At the same time, we want to say big THANK YOU to all our great members who are far from such things. Who take value, have fun, and help others. 
Thank you!

Skipper,

I have lost +40 Elo in just one Chessmood  tournament in less than one hour, facing chess engines.

Users with 1800-2000 Elo play like 2600 GMs!!

Well done.

Can you solve the problem by banning them?

The presence of cheaters  in Chessmood tournament makes it an unpleasant event, and I hesitate to participate in those tournaments anymore. You cannot enjoy a feast with bugs flying around.

This is  ugly.

In my last Chessmood tournament I've lost 44 Elo. Worse happened before ...  It seems some of these cheaters use engines when they get bad positions. I'm curious to know how they do that, and from where they learn to cheat like that ?!?!? Anyway, I'm not going to play another Chessmood tournament and waste my Elo to engines ;) 

What is your story?

Kevin Sun,

I did it. I reported them. Chess.com adjusted my rating by  +7 points without revealing the name of the cheater(s). It seems some of cheaters use engines when they get bad positions (Not from the beginning), or may be a strong players is playing on their account ?!?!?!. These cases cannot be detected by Chess.com.

The cheater you met was andt711. You can check your previous games, the banned user will have a red circle next to it (I attached a screenshot for you).  

Yes, I agree no algorithm can perfectly detect cheaters. It's all based on probability. Being reported as a cheater for sure increase the probability.
