I was recently talking to a friend who is on a different chess site (i've been trying to persade him to change!) where there is actually a section of the site for people who have chess engines and programs so they can play them against each other or people who want a challenge can play them. I think it would definitely decrease the amount of cheating.

But it would possibly bring more people to the website and help people like azicky improve his game (if possible)
Originally posted by RamnedWhat is the use of CC chess/OTB chess if online speed chess takes care of your needs? Because its a different ball game. When I cannot play in the Main Playing Hall since I'm human, I enjoy watching my engine with old hardware taking on machines with up to 16 processors (ouch).
The purpose of an engine is not really to use it vs others
meant to use it against yourself or to review and help yourself.. so why have it online anyways
