    Would it be possible to set up invitations/challenges at uchess? It would be nice to be able to run a one day full tournament. It would increase usership I think.

    Just an idea.

    uChess development has been given a lower priority at the moment - the majority of my time does appear to be better spent here for the time being.

    I still have some uChess fixes to make over the coming months, but no big enhancements until my task list here is complete.

    You should work on developement of a clone. I just see the oportunities of being able to run full tournament there complete in a day, which if I can find enough people willing to do so I will get on it right away. I made an investment of tournament software which allows pairing according to the FIDE rules. I have plans to use it here and at my chess club in town. I will figure out the pitfalls of coordinating the gambit of instructions and details involved in setting up the tournaments and getting everyone on the same page. I was not sure if invites for players were an option, but thought I would ask.

    Mike,

    Let me have the details of what you would like to see at uChess with regard to this, and if it isn't too complex, I will see if I can fit it in.

    I guess that I am looking for a feature that if I wanted to play a certain person I could open up a waiting game to be accepted by said opponent. It would make running a tournament much simpler than the entrants having to delete games accepted by others.

    It is probobly a pain in the butt for you. Please don't feel like you need to do anything for me. I just thought it would be a nice feature to add at the site and could bring in more customers for you.

    PS,
