[April 2, 2019] Announcement of the Discontinuation of Service
Dear users and chess friends,
We are sorry to inform you that, starting from April 2, 2019, Chess Openings 24/7 Encyclopedia (CHOPIN) and articles (Pick of the Week and Opening Surveys) will no longer be updated. The service will remain online until July 1, 2019, after which it will be discontinued completely.
CO 24/7 has made every effort to work out a sustainable business model over the past few years, but we still failed to succeed. Due to the nature of our contract with our e-commerce provider and their bank, we can only refund user payments made in March 2019 (all subscriptions will remain active until the final discontinuation of service).
We deeply apologize for the inconvenience caused – our sincere wish has always been to make a meaningful contribution to the chess community, and we have been putting our money into the project for a very long time, but we can no longer do that.
Hoping that you will understand the circumstances that led to this unfortunate outcome, we remain
Chess Openings 24/7 Team
