How did you hear about Stan's NetChess?

Maximum number of active games per opponent:
        This option pertains to Public Challenges only. When another player tries to accept a Public
        Challenge that you have made, the system will not allow it if the number of active games you
        currently have with that player exceeds this value. (Usage of this option will become more clear
        as you gain experience with the site - and you can always change this value later) 10 is the Maximum.

Which player should be shown at the Bottom of Board?
    Me!, always show me at the bottom of the board.
    White, always show White player at bottom.

    Opponent, always show my opponent at bottom.

What is your preferred Piece Set?
    Large, show me the larger pieces by default.
    Small, show me the smaller pieces by default.
    Tiny, show me the tiny pieces by default (best for WebTV).

        The previous 2 options only affect links from your Player Page.  They allow you to immediately
        see the game in the way you like to see it.  Remember, you will be able to change these settings later.
        Depending on your display settings, the smaller pieces may fit on your screen better.
