    I think you should do what scrabulous.com has done, and build a Facebook app to allow people to play chess over Facebook.

    I'm a big fan of this site, but I find I now play far more scrabble than chess, despite preferring chess as a game, because I can do so on FB. I suspect many others will be in the same situation.

    Apologies if others have already suggested this - I don't hang out on these fora much any more (because I'm on Facebook instead...).

    Why on earth would RHP want to build an application for people to go play chess on another site instead of playing it here?!

    For the same reason Scrabulous have, which (I assume) is that they realize they will gradually lose all their members otherwise.

    there is already a chess app on facebook, although i've never used it.

    incidentally, i notice a guy trolling on their message board - used to be here as merchantparkpro.

    That guy is a bad seed... mean as a boot-full of scorpions. I have a sister and an aunt like that, and I call it "the mean gene".

    I recently saw an event scheduled on facebook for somebody's funeral. I thought to myself, I wonder if I could write a eulogy on the wall? Speaking of, think somebody actually posted on the event wall: "Sorry Kevin! Would love to come but I already got plans."? I sincerely hope so.

    Anyways, carry on.
