# Group invite

I haven't posted in my blog for a few months, so I decided to post something However, this is a different one than last time

You are all welcome to join my group, Chess Empire:

This is one group I am really proud of. I have made it grow from the beginning, concentrating not on quantity (like most groups), but on quality. I have invited my friends and people who are dedicated to their groups. Sadly, some of the most active members had to stop their activity or leave chess.com for various reasons. Thus I decided to invite more people. As all my friends should get an alert for this post, I hope some of you will join You are all welcome!

And an easy puzzle to solve
