Design
I understand but it all depends on the number of players connected and ready to play at a given time. Right now, it is not possible to make bullet games (...)

I would say if you make it easier to arrange Games then they would be more likely to happen. "I'd you book the bands they will come" bill and (...)



Big chess castling
Hi William, Everything is possible, as for me I always disliked the strange castling rules at chess 960 and didn't want to complexify rules for Big (...)



Big chess castling
Thibault, Have you ever considered allowing players to castle twice in big chess, giving a mechanism to allow similar castled positions to normal chess? (...)

Design
Hello John, You are right, many things are not easy for new players, particularly not used to the "correspondence chess style". Tournaments (...)



Design
Hi... don't want to be annoying to the developers - in general the new style is more inviting than the old - but it is still pretty busy. I had to search (...)



Real Poker Game
Excellent idea, it would be a kind of world championship FICGS ... if it were possible (...)



unable to play my move!

unable to play my move!
So, for your 7th move you typed "0-0" or "7...0-0" ? (with zero-zero, not O-O) Sorry, I have to be absolutely sure to be able to reproduce (...)

Dear Mr Thibault, I am sure I played 7...0-0 as the game showed.Ng4 was my intended move after White played 11.f4.But my move was not permitted by the (...)



Real Poker Game
Hmm hmm, that's an interesting idea to dig! But there are many instant questions, starting with legality :) FICGS cannot organize any poker tournament (...)



unable to play my move!
Hello again Aniruddha, While talking with another player about this strange case, an important question raised: what was the 7th move you intended to (...)

Harold Moye, man of arts... and chess
Harold was also the state Chess Champion in Idaho in 1973... a great achievement among many others, obviously. (...)



unable to play my move!
<< That could seem to be a fair solution at a first sight, but of course that would create ways to "save" lost games (and/or complexify (...)



unable to play my move!
I understand but the way I coded the moves verification more than a decade ago, it is unlikely that all cases can be fixed :/ Fortunately, problems are (...)



unable to play my move!
Dear Mr Thibault, First time this thing happened to me.I will be careful but kindly see non occurance of this type of software bug further.I lost some (...)



unable to play my move!
That could seem to be a fair solution at a first sight, but of course that would create ways to "save" lost games (and/or complexify rules quite (...)

Maybe refunding rating points? Like "you lost to software bug, so there's your compensation". (...)



unable to play my move!
A bit wtf about rules. :O (...)



unable to play my move!
Hello Aniruddha, well that's the first time I see that strange bug. I don't understand yet how it happened but you probably entered it (meaning Ng4 I guess) (...)

But the game actually continued 7...0-0 8.Nge2 Rb8 9.bxc5 dxc5 10.0-0 b6 11.f4 the server allowed all these moves but now not permitting Black playing (...)

<< Incorrect move : 7. ...Ng1, from player black. >> (...)



unable to play my move!
Now I have observed that there are mismatch in the moves played in the game and recorded in the server.Will Mr Thibault kindly look into the matter urgently (...)



unable to play my move!
In game 102995 I can't play my move as Black.Any move played by me is shown as INVALID MOVE by the server!What to do??? (...)



Harold Moye, man of arts... and chess
I'm very sad to announce here that we just lost a chess friend, Harold Moye, who played chess with us while he was involved in a much more difficult battle. (...)



New style? Please revert
Many thanks for the capture! This is exactly the mobile version, so either it was the url memorized somewhere in your browser, or you reached it via the (...)



New style? Please revert
?? .. that seems very strange... if you could send me a screen capture, it could help much to prevent some strangeness. I'm always afraid of browsers updates (...)



New style? Please revert
Found the problem. I'm using Firefox 60beta. Chrome works ok. Somehow the device detection is not working with Firefox Beta. (...)



New style? Please revert
No. The old 'My Games' used to show both my time remaining and my opponents. Now it looks like the App version. My Tournaments has gone missing as (...)



New style? Please revert
If you mean "background color/image", either it is selected randomly each time you login, or you can choose it in Preferences. (...)



New style? Please revert
Ah... as there is no desktop style (as far as I know), I do not see what this is about?! Could you specify? Many thanks! (...)



New style? Please revert
The new desktop style is not so usable. Please revert to previous style. Thanks, Kym (...)

D = Damen is German PGN - so maybe it is not so foolish? Ditto N = S Springer (...)



Daily Chess World Championship
I have chosen to move on. Piece out. (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
I thought about this kind of joke... didn't dare ^^ But this kind of pieces could be added in the Musketeer Chess variant. (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
We have enough dragons in real life - Angela Merkel, Theresa May and many others..... Don´t need dragons on the chess-board. And the king is called Donald (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Okay, time to "reveal" that this topic was my tentative of an april's fool joke, of course... Everyone understood it at the first line, I guess (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Interesting! Reminds me the nice game The Attack ("L'attaque" en français). But only males in this one again. (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
During french Revolution, there was some propositions to rename pieces: King = Flag Queen = Adjutant Rook = Cannon Knight = Rider Pawn = Trooper (...)

How about DragQueen? (...)

Anything can happen tomorrow :) (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
On a related note, I have just moved to Paris, and had my first Domino's pizza here today, only to discover that it did not come with the traditional garlic (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Let's change everything now... why not? It's a revolution! We could be pioneers & spread the word, let's replace this old sexist game for a truly (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Agreed. Only question now is what we do with chess games in progress - let them play out, or somehow convert them to the new game partway through? (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Why not Elf... maybe not Dwarf (even if the tunnel thing is pretty cool). I think we should completely replace chess for a "Game of thrones" (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
Then you would have to give the Rooks/Dwarves the power to tunnel under other pieces, and the Bishops/Elves the power to shoot other pieces with their (...)



Poll: renaming the Queen as Dragon
And renaming Bishop as Elf and Rook as Dwarf? (...)
