I think the sub-boards are very useful indeed. Thank you!

By the way, I got a rather frightening response after typing in "www.chesspub.com" into my browser: "Welcome to Utimate Web Hosting. Thanks for signing up with us. This will now be your default page...<segue to Ultimate Web Hosting site. No chesspub in sight.>"

Is this a security problem or a configuration glitch or something else?

I think subfora for books/DVDs are unnecessary and may just create clutter.  Discussions about a product usually spill over into evaluating particular positions and variations.


True, but often I noticed that, say, a repertoire book would cover several opening lines and so I couldn't stick it into one of the sub-boards.

Tony, Thank you for your work in upgrading and improving the forum!


Thanks! My wrist is still sore from moving thousands of threads! Smiley

Tony, Thank you for your work in upgrading and improving the forum!  I find it amazing that a famous Grandmaster is carefully pruning and sorting all these silly threads created by little peasants like me.  Smiley

I'm sure everyone will have noticed that the Forum has been totally reorganised with all major openings having their own sub-board now. Smiley
If anyone has any suggestions for any more sub-boards that they think are required please don't hesitate to say, but it occurred to me that several sections could do with a new sub-board just for books and DVDs, what do Forum members think? Is this a good idea or are there already too many sub-boards? Undecided
