    How would you interpret that vote? Majority of 106 rules so leave it as is? Or majority of 134 rules so add variants of some kind?

    Question should be - does any oppose it?

    Personally, no problems with variants being on the site, but I'm still learning the old version - so probably wouldn't play the variants.

    I'd interpret it differently, since the site already has Fischer chess:
    148 happy with what's available now
    37 unhappy, want more programming code added
    55 interested enough to consider the question, but aren't bothered either way.

    A lot of work involved to please 37 out of 240 voters.

    No we haven't. The castling rule doesn't work.

    exactly.

    we'll never know how many new people would join the site if it offered more variations of the game.
