    Hello all,

    As a new hobby I would like to built a website dedicated to chess.

    However I need inspiration.
    So, what would you like to see on it?

    It is not going to be a x-rated site

    The en passant rule explained in several different ways, so that the next time I'm playing OTB and someone claims it's not a valid move, I can prove it quickly.

    Thanks for the input

    The fide regulation will be added.
    I will give special atttention to en passant, (minor) promotion and castling.
    Their will also be some links to a few local tournaments

    Don´t expect it running in a few days, I think it will go online somewhere in march maybe even april

    Just random suggestions (from what I've seen on other good sites):

    -Annotated GM games (or other strong players, just no blunder-wins)
    -Regularly updated (biweekly, weekly, etc.) special studies on openings or endgames of interest
    -Tactics puzzle(s)

    You should also include links to various chess resources and organizations...

    Will it be for profit?

    Im not sure if I can update annotated GM games. It might be to time consuming. However I will try

    Once it is online I will update weekly (with a few exceptions a year)
    I like your idea of adding openings and/or endgames. I will use this as update material.

    Tactics puzzles will be added

    No. And with my development skills it will not look professional either.


    However I would not mind becoming a populair website.

    Looking back at what I said, even I think that's a bit demanding. As I mentioned, any sort of annotated game between strong players would be nice. Just don't post games where the loss was caused by an obvious blunder, for example.

    If you could annotate Game 3967407, for instance, I think you'd be on your way to a good site...
