I also like the idea. On brightshadows appeared the same idea, but somehow it didn't continue ... I don't remember why
Here is a link
to the TBS topic.
If some people would like to build a programming team, I would like to be a part of it. I guess we would make a piece of OpenSource Chess Software? Has anyone experience with the different software licenses?
@Inferno, Gizmore, Kender ... or who else is admin: Which languages may be used? Which database do you have? Would it be okay for you to host a piece of OpenSource, community programmed chess software?
edit: I've just talked with Gizmore. He likes the idea of having a community chess on wechall. We may only use MySQL and PHP (server-side) to reduce the possible vulnerabilities.
Here is the project I've just started:code.google.com/p/community-chess
Any recomendations are welcome. If you know something about naming conventions it would be the right time to explain them to me or suggest other names of parts of the database.
The software should be easy to modify so that it can use the existing user-tables of Wechall or any other challenging-site and use the WC5-code
. But it should also be able to run without any changes.
The first point on my roadmap is to get it working with standard-chess rules. No GUI, only the most basic input / output options, which are needed.
