The editors, past editors, contributors, and inventors behind this site.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Ben Reiniger wrote on 2021-02-22 UTC Is this website no longer being updated? Yes! The best places to see what's going on (IMO, and omitting Game Courier) are the What's New page and the listing of all comments You can also see the listing of submitted-but-unpublished pages here; viewing the pages listed there requires being logged in. I see that Andrew Kuess' variant page linked in the previous comment is still "currently hidden pending approval by the Chess Variant Pages editorial staff." Hm, yes, we should've at least commented on that one. I saw it and passed on review at the time, and promptly forgot all about it. I'll go and make some comments now. On that note, If there's still an admin actively approving new variants, let me know and I'll add the best variants I've invented to this site. We have three editors currently active in approving submissions (two recent ones were brought on, see a few posts earlier in this thread, but I haven't seen much of them), but it's all volunteered time, so sometimes we get bogged down. Please do submit your game(s)! I'd suggest starting with just one, so that if we have generic feedback on it that would apply to your other submissions, you can incorporate it while writing.

Andrew Kuess wrote on 2021-02-03 UTCHello, i tried to add my variant and it has not been approved yet. Can one of your admins check on this for me? Thank you https://www.chessvariants.com/invention/castle-chess-by-starcaptaindread David Cannon wrote on 2020-06-29 UTCExcellent ★★★★★Welcome to our two new editors. It's great to see some new blood. Next step : see some new blood in terms of contributors, not just editors, too. I'll try to find time to design a new variant or two myself, if I can get some letup from my 70-hours a week job, but I'd also love to see a lot more game designers get on board. Ola Sassersson wrote on 2020-05-02 UTCWhy, thank you. Ben Reiniger wrote on 2020-05-02 UTCWelcome, Zied and Ola! Fergus Duniho wrote on 2020-05-01 UTCI have added two new editors, Zied Haddad and Ola Sassersson. I have also removed two editors, Jeremy Gabriel Good and Tony Quintanilla, because neither one has logged on in years. Despite accepting my request to be editors when I took over this site, neither one has logged on since before I took over in late 2015. So, I don't think either one is interested in continuing to be an editor. Those who are already editors should have the passwords for the database, SSH, SCP, and SFTP. The new editors have not been given these yet, because they are still new, but they have gained editor privileges while signed into the website. Ola Sassersson wrote on 2020-04-28 UTCI heard you are in need of more editors. I would like to join as an editor. (Posting this here because I'm not sure which email addresses get answered.) If you want me aboard, send a message to the email address in my profile, which gets checked daily. 8 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
