    How about a daily chess puzzle.
    They have this and a tactics trainer at chess.com.
    The only really good things about the site.

    It's not a bad idea, but someone needs to HAVE the puzzles. This might be better treated as a thread in Chess, to credit where each puzzle came from unless there is an RHP user making their own puzzles and willing to donate them to RHP.

    I don't think it would be a good idea for RHP to take puzzles from another site, person, newspaper or book without explicit consent from the puzzle source.

    Shredderchess.com offers the following daily chess puzzle for free:

    A lot of different sites incorporate this puzzle. Korch could probably even add it to his new chess blog.

    RHP needs to watch out for copyrights.

    It's odd to think that Puzzles can be intellectual property, but I'm sure they are. I'm puzzled by ordinary things all the time even though I don't have any notion that I own them. Oh wait, the SOLUTIONS count! I don't have any of those, sorry.

    A LINK to a daily chess puzzle would suffice, but it would probably be confounded by the notion that it would constitute promoting competitors.

    Quoting puzzles is fine as long as you credit the source. If it's a composition, give the composer's name at a minimum. If it's from a game, give the player's names.

    Yes, but before implementing this we should consider the legal
    ramifications should we grab the puzzles from someone else's site. And if
    we don't, who should be adding puzzles to the pot? Hm?
