...we threw the switch and this site went “live”. And we have been providing a (very nearly) uninterrupted free online chess service ever since. For what started as just another hobby project (with a daft name) for two over enthusiastic programmers, this one stuck around.
And to everyone who has played here over the years, assisted with managing the site or sent valued feedback about how we can improve, we would like to thank you, you have made the site what it is. The community here has certainly defined what the site was and has become, and makes this place unique.
I’ll keep this brief, and avoid re-documenting all the events of the first 10 years, but we’ll be doing a few things over the next couple of weeks. First off, sign up to the prize winning tournaments!
Thanks again everyone, I hope you’ll be with us for many more years too.
