you can start a conversation about a topic, or you can make a page, about whatever, you don't have to create a game, check out the alphabetical index and you will see how there are different things posted besides chess variants.

Johnny Luken, up top is a button that says "Create a New Topic for Discussion".  Go to it!  I'm interested!

Johnny Luken wrote on Tue, Oct 9, 2012 08:15 PM UTC:
Ok, I see its now been added.

Aside from actual games, is there a way you can post piece articles or general essays and discussion on different concepts of interest?

I for example have a particular interest in the Ultima/Rococo style games, and have thought of a number of piece types to expand upon them, but rather than churning out variants, I feel I might be best placed to simply publish piecemeal articles on the pieces...

Your name is in the list, under "Luken, Johnny"

Johnny Luken wrote on Tue, Oct 9, 2012 03:35 PM UTC:

As far I can see, my name still isn't the list of dropdown options...

I sent in my first submission 3 days ago, a chess 16*16 variant, to [email protected].

How long before I get feedback? Does the game show up on this website or do I resubmit as recognised contributor?

Semantics aside, I stand by my point that this website could be made more accessible to new users, with a proper explanation and procedure for 1st submissions for a start...

Johnny Luken, you are now able to submit games or other materials to this site. I agree the wording might be a bit better, but you can join the site as a user without being a contributing member. And once you're registered, I can allow you to submit things, which I've just done. Joe

"To become a member, you must be a contributor to our pages (either as an author or inventor). Simply go to our Contributors Page, select your name from the top list, press the "Send" button, and then follow the instructions on the screen."

In other words to become a contributor, you have to select your name from the readymade list of contributors? Anyone see the slight problem with this?! 

It might be helpful to people you know ARENT contributors to begin with, to have a contact to send their 1st submissions or other means of getting started.

Its a little strange how you neglect ANYWHERE on this site to mention as how someone ACTUALLY  becomes a contributor and sends in 1st submissions. Theres just a link to a general queries email and thats it.

Are you actively trying to discourage new members and input? Because thats the impression this website gives. At least to me...

Thank you Joe Joyce. When I get some free time, I will see about filling out the forms for contributing my variant to this wonderful site. Thanks.

Joe Joyce wrote on Thu, Feb 17, 2011 05:44 PM UTC:
Travis Z - you're hooked up. You may submit games or other materials through the normal submission process. Let me know if your name is not on the list. Joe

Your first submission must be by email to the editors. After that, then you can submit using the form.

Travis Z wrote on Thu, Feb 17, 2011 05:49 AM UTC:
I am also having the problem of being able to submit something to the site. It will not let me add a variant as my name is not in the pull down list.

Joe Joyce wrote on Sun, Dec 5, 2010 06:12 AM UTC:
Okay, Shi Ji, you are listed as a contributor. You can submit items now.

Steven Streetman wrote on Sun, Dec 5, 2010 05:51 AM UTC:
Shi Ji

Send me an email and I will send you the details on how to submit a variant. I just went through the process recently and wrote a submission summary. 

Send to [email protected]

Shi Ji wrote on Sun, Dec 5, 2010 05:11 AM UTC:
I have been a registered user, but still can't submit a variant. I can't find my user id in the user id list. Do I need to become a member not only a user?

''i'm posting a game for first time, what should i do?''

Go to this page:

At the top, you will see this:
''The Chess Variant Pages: Index

Click on 'Post Your Own Game' and you will get the first page of a two page form that you fill out to submit a game. Complete and send those two pages and an editor will look at the submission and either post it or return it with comments to indicate what will make it acceptable. If you have any questions or problems, please email me. Click on my name, highlighted in blue, on the left of this comment, and it will take you to my 'person ID' page, which gives a current email address.

I've got a game I'd like to post, but I can't. What should I do?

Is there any way to post games rules without e-mail?

Simon Jepps wrote on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 04:23 PM UTC:
If you have not heard in a couple of days I'd email them and let them know the issue.

We keep minimal information on our members and registered users. When you register, you get to choose your own User Id. A valid email address is required when you sign up, and it will later be used to send you moves in games you are playing and to notify you of comments posted to your contributions to the site. Your email address gets displayed as two separate form elements to help hide it from spammers. Once you have registered, you may delete your address if you don't want it visible. Being registered with us is mainly for your benefit. It gives you the ability to confirm your identity where this matters, such as posting comments, making moves in games, and voting in polls. It also allows us to list all your contributions to the site in one place. From your profile, someone may see listings of the games you have created, the pages you have authored, and the comments you have written. If you have any further questions on registration, contact David Howe, who wrote and maintains the software we use for registering users. Note that [email protected] is not one of the actual email addresses for our site. The line that says 'or send email to [email protected]' should be removed, because that address does not exist. But it is up to David to handle this.
