    I have been having a blast playing Chess960 at other sites. I would like to play it here where I am a paying customer.

    Given the importance of Castling, I can't agree with you that Chess960 is supported here.

    I'm currently playing one of these games on RHP, but we aren't yet up to the stage where castling is possible. The setup screen claimed that castling worked. Is this not so?

    If castling is not possible, then it is not Random Fisher, nor Chess960.

    I suppose that's true. Why the admins have not updated this yet I don't know. Probably for the same reason Blitz chess is still unrated.

    I don't see were you can even set up the chess960 starting position. Someone said it was in advanced options. It does not show for me.

    NewGame screen, bottom left hand corner, "set up your own board". It's easy enough to work out once you get the relevant screen, and these games are always shown with the set-piece symbol and unrated. It's not in advanced options.

    I set up a game "Fischer Random Attempt". It will be unrated if anyone want to attempt to play.

    I have a few games going here, but I'm disappointed that the castling doesn't work at all, even though the page says it's available. I'll stick with the chess.com system which works for castling, even though it has another problem.
