    Meanwhile, seeing the impressive upgrade of PF, would it be too audacious to inquire casually, if there is any chance to have the PF chess subforum restored? (no pressure by all means).

    Greg had announced that before the upgrade we might lose the chess forum. Apparently it's not supported in the new software. Sorry. :frown:

    I know you really enjoyed it Andre, if the addon is ever ported to the new version I will install it. :cry:

    Re: PF-Chess?

    That's cool! I'm still not very into chess, but I know how much other people enjoyed having it. I also enjoyed peeking into the games sometimes and watching players banter back and forth.

    Re: PF-Chess?

    I used to be an addicted player before University. I still watch games almost everyday though and I die to play!
    So if I have some free time I'd be interested in it.

    I always lost, and got yelled at for making wrong and illegal moves, lol. I may suck at Chess, but I think it's fun to play!
