You are on the backup site for Chessvariants.com. Any posts, moves, or other changes you make here will not be permanent, because the pages and database from the main site will be backed up here every midnight EST. Additionally, things may not be working right, because this site is also a testbed for newer system software. So, if you are not here to test, develop, or merely read this site, you may want to change .org to .com in the navigation bar and go to the main site.

Step 1: Name and Classify Your Submission

This form allows registered members of this site to post new content. Content must be relevant to the site, and editorial approval is required before publication.

If you have invented a new game, it must have a new, unique name. Given how many Chess variants exist, many names are already used. Please consult the Alphabetical Index first. If you were calling your game XYZ Chess, for example, and that name is already used, one possibility is to call it Smith's XYZ Chess (assuming your name is Smith.)

Since This site is run by volunteers, your submission may be ignored for a long time. To speed things along, you should post a comment if you judge your submission is ready for publication and nothing has been happening. You should also pay attention to editorial comments and make any requested changes. If you ignore editoral requests, you can hold up publication of your page indefinitely, and this could eventually lead to its deletion.

If you want to edit a page you have already created, select the Your Unpublished Submissions menu item in the menu headed by your name.
