'One idea is to have polls for each type of game. Then we can see which people find the most fun!' We have conducted polls in the past and shall continue to do so, though I don't think we have conducted polls on specific types of games. 'Why not team up with FICS and get some more variants into the chess servers?' As far as I could tell, FICS is only a Chess server. If they become interested in Chess variants and want our help, they can contact us. In the meantime, we have Game Courier, which already handles over a hundred variants and can always handle more. /play/pbm/
