Hello All, This is just a friendly reminder to read the Forum Charter where you wish to post before posting in it. :)
Hi all, The AutoSave Draft feature is now disabled across the site. The decision to disable the feature was made via a poll last year. The delay in putting it in place was due to a bug/update issue. This should serve as a reminder to manually save your drafts if you wish to keep them. Thanks, The Boards Team.
Hello all! This is just a quick reminder to ensure that you are posting a new thread or question in the appropriate forum. The Feedback forum is overwhelmed with questions that are having to be moved elsewhere.

    Just in light of recent activity, I said I'd bump this thread so everyone's aware of it.

    Many recent posts here have either been not relevant or off topic, or they've been uncivil, or they've been arguing with a mod on the thread.

    These aren't rules we wrote for the chess forum specifically - as you can see from the poster, who's not a chess mod, for example.

    The rules should allow for proper discussion and debate, which is what we want on here.

    If you don't want proper discussion and debate, there are other Irish chess forums you can post on.
