must be something I ate - two ideas in one evening!
Anyway - this one was ripped off a thread on the 'only chess' forum so is not really mine...
How about another indicator (a bit like the clan man) for subscribers to indicate if they would represent their national flag as an international player?
This way international challenges could be played out on the site, without limiting the challenge size to the clan sizes.
Just a thought - credit to saffa73 and testrider for prompting it.
