João, thanks for the reply. My hope is there could be a 'Chess of Tomorrow' project taking off that could do all the classification work, and so on, and help plan this stuff out. I know IAGO is vested in such activity. Someone have asked why such granularity is needed. Well, my take is that such is important to be able to run tournaments, and help to be able to cause something as diverse as chess variants to get traction. Also, coming up with a system that has mutators, will enable people to propose elements, without having the usual 'hey, let's do ANOTHER GAME based around a single idea'.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.
