Re: An update on Blunder 1.0.0

Your "main.go" looks a little bit problematic to me. What if "DEBUG" becomes true? And you seem to expect that the very first command you receive is one of "uci", "debug" (which is rather "interactive"), or "options" (which is rather "help").

Re: Moderator Elections

Policy Statement: I think that right now the way talkchess is moderated is generally sufficient.

I nominate Andrew Grant.

As one of the oldest members in this community, I do consider him to be the perfect moderator.

Hope this isn’t too late.

NOT-SF derivatives, like Rubichess, Minic, Igel, Fire 8 NNUE , Zahak, Nemorino, Seer, Marvin, Greko, Berserk, Gogobello You might want to do some more reading. You've got an imposter in that list. Fire 8 is open source...there is no SF in it. However there are several threads in engine origins deta...

Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

You do understand that those pages were only updated AFTER getting legal notice from Stockfish, right? The explicit mentioning of Stockfish's GPLv3 is an attempt to remedy the violation. You know full and well the original page made no direct associations between Stockfish and FF2. How can he know ...
