    I have created Club 164 for composers and solvers of chess problems. This would allow composers, like Jirakon, to show originals without 'publishing' them. [If they are posted in a public forum, they cannot be submitted as an original to a chess problem magazine.]

    I would also like a forum where I could post as many problems for solving as I wanted, without concern about spamming complaints. We could even have a solving competition.

    If we can get 20 members, we can have a forum. Apply here: Club 164.

    We're up to 4 members so far: strokem1, crazyblue, and Jirakon joined.

    Many thanks. This is the sort of loophole I've been hoping for for a while.

    Hi guys. I'm not really good at compositions or anything, but here is an amazing one I found surfing the web.

    "The author is Mark Libiurkin and it is not surprising
    to discover this composition won first prize in a
    composing tourney in 1933."

    You don't have to be good at composition to join the club. You don't even have to post in the forum. Just apply so we can get 20 members.

    Now up to 14 members. With luck, we'll have filled the thing within 24 hours of its founding.

    Success! I just approved 7 more members and created the forum. It can be quickly accessed from the Forums -> My Private Forums dropdown menu.

    Looks like your play to win starts with the rook sac, Rxg7+, KxR
    R-G1 + If K-h1, B-F6#
    so K-H6
    Q-e3 + K-h5
    R-G5+ QXR
    QXQ #
    Nice chess site BTW!

    This private club is offensive, and unsuitable.

    In response to the initial post:

    Out of interest, why do you find it necessary to start a private forum for this? Why not just post here?
