I've seen the new "black interface" ( http://blackchat.chesscube.com/ ) they are developing, imo they have not addressed any of the existing issues, and in fact I believe they have made the system harder to use.
They are more concerned with graphics and effects than chess!
Hopefully the project leaders will learn a little bit about online chess in the future.
That said, I will use the system for a quick game when I'm not at my usual PC; but I can't see it being a regular haunt. I did invite some local OTB players to join, who I added to my "contacts" list, but the system has a bug which deletes the contact list every day, rendering this useless. There is a lot of ground to make up with stability and security before I would consider giving up my credit card for any premium features.

Could you possibly send me a screenshot of what it looks like when you log in.
I have joined the ECF group, and when I log in I do get the group.
Please email it to me at : thys (at) chesscube (dot) com

Music to my ears. This is what will attract the club player who wants to learn more about chess ideas and history, and improve their technique, tactics, strategy, openings, positions and endgames!
