New Site Features Coming This Weekend

Oct
31st
I am happy to announce some new website features that will air this weekend. The first thing will be a profile section where you can add and edit your personal data. This will also include support for avatars (= user images) and picking your location on a world map. Not every private information will be made public for all visitors but registered team members will be allowed to see them.

Along with that there will also be the probably most wanted feature to date: "forgot password". If you provide an e-mail address you can then have your password automatically resetted in case you forgot it. Open registrations will still be prohibited though for the moment.

And if time allows it, we will also include the teamleague feature so that all upcoming games as well as past results will be automaticall displayed here on this website.

A Word About Updates

Oct
29th
Yes, I know. This website is getting way to few updates but I am working on improving things. There are still some parts on this site that needs work which to some extend prevent me from writing here.

However, things will be better in the future as I will update this blog more often with fresh content. The first stept is a weekly video feature with chess related videos. I have already uploaded posts for the next two mondays so I can keep my promise here ;-)

Other than that I am still looking for volunteers who would like to write blog posts here. Anything goes as long as it is chess related. Teamleague updates and a weekly chess puzzle feature would be a nice start I think. So if you want help out, contact me!

Quotes Section Update

Aug
24th
Hi all!

I updated the quotes section. Along with KiranYs request to be able to navigate to each page directly via link I also added the possibility to rate the quotes from 1 to 5 stars.

So dig through the quotes and vote for your favourites :)

Make a Wish!

Aug
23rd
I just set up the development environment for this website. I am starting work on the tournament and the game page so that by end of september we can run our custom tournaments as well as keep track of our league standings. That will be a lot of work but it should be doable.

I have also set up a ticket and bug reporting system for this website. Right now it is only for authenticated users, so if someone wants to help in any way with work on this website then tell me. I will set you up with an account then.

What I need from all of you is a "wishlist". Which features would you like to see added to this website? Be crazy and tell me what do you want :)

Back on Fics (again)

Aug
23rd
Yes, the previous entry was titled "I am back on FICS" but it turned out that my busy phase hasn't been quite over back then. I still had to work on that nasty project and then moved to a new appartment.

I am almost done with moving now and my computer is already set up and you guys will see me more often again on FICS. And hopefully I will be able to also get some work done with this website. :)
