    I think its just a bit neglected. To achieve the level of uchess on the first release is a great achievement. But, it does badly need a few things fixed/updated.

    hehe,you quoted it............
    Maybe I'm too harsh,but uchess misses a lot of features and Russ doesn't want to spend there a lot of his time and money,for his own admission.
    The forums are a mess also............

    What is the relationship between uchess and rhp anyway?

    You are right. Plenty of work required. (And the 3 move repetition could be added very easily.)

    In fact, the only recent updates have been to help maintain law and order. A serious problem recently.

    The relationship between the uChess and RHP is that they are developed and maintained by the same people.

    Russ,

    Are they seperate corporate entities?

    I don't play at uChess very often. I could live without it (NOT without RHP though). What I'd like to see with uChess is a tighter integration with RHP. Perhaps allowing RHP accounts on uChess (ie: my username would show up as tmetzler@RHP when logged into uChess).
    And a SEPERATE ROOM for rhp subscribers. [To keep out the riffraff ]

    For this I would be willing to subscribe to uChess. Make it a "Super RHP Subscription" of sorts...

    Three move repetition is a rule. To have a site that doesn't enforce it is like having a chess site that doesn't recognise checkmate. It really needs to be done as uchess can't be taken seriously as a chess site if it doesn't enforce the rules of chess! Lecture complete, class dismissed

    I would love to do great things with uChess, but the problem is this. I am but one man, and I already invest a huge number of hours into this site. My problem is my ambitions don't quite fit the time available... If any of my projects were at all profitable, I could probably get help in and just manage it, but as it is, it is me (and Chris) doing what we can.

    I think I can offer the most benefit to people if I continue to focus my attentions on RHP for now anyway. RHP already has the large established user base.

    I think you've got your priorities right! Uchess 3 move rep really needs to be implemented though, along with 50 move rule (assuming that is'nt)
