I think for an exampe of what CC could strive for, you can look at http://www.chess.com


Which is a shame, since this place has so much potential.

This may be a tough decision for the CC owner(s), but in order for a business to grow, sometimes the management should be replaced with more competent people. Sometimes, certain people should only specialize in their trade. The issue of trust and finding a capable manager are considerable problems, but sometimes, such a move is necessary to retain loyal customers, to provide an awesome "Risk" experience to new customers, and to earn more money in the long-term.


So, basically, you need a job?


Yes, my client, BBS, who is going to pay me 50% of what he makes, needs a job.

I guess the R*sk board game is quite a niche market, and advertising banners all over the internet wouldn't appeal to many people when next to some Nazi-killing flash game. I reckon >90% of members on CC are here because they actively searched for "free online risk", and not "free generic online multiplayer game". Y'all see where I'm going with this.

Wouldn't you have to get more members to continue to register for a premium to make this number grow. If you are losing the same number of people that you are gaining then the figure won't grow. CC doesn't need to strengthen its marketing plows it needs to make sure that they are keeping premium members and increasing the amount of freebies to premium.

CC the games, and by that I mean the stupid dice, is why I've not renewed my membership.

Have better dice. people like the game. people pay for premium. you get to hire more people as a job. site improves. more people. more money.

Hey, why not? I need a job with very flexible hours because I got a stiff back that's killing me. Ho ho.

Marketing deals with retaining customers, increasing customer loyalty, convincing freemiums to switch to premium, and yada yada.


CC most likely isn't going to release any information to me, so I can't answer your question. They're just gonna lurk this one out, guy.
