hi mathias. i don't think there are too many platform subforums.
in the future there will be alot of ANDROID chess and Mac Chess due to the new Ipads, Apads etc. tablet-PCs.

most of those Pads use different operating systems and i guess there will be plenty of different programs/engines
for these available and it could be discussions would be chaotic if you put them all together
in ONE area.

Today this might be different , but for the future its clear that
there is the need to discuss Chess in Windows, Linux, MacOs, Android, Java, PalmOS,...

apple sold 3.000.000 Ipads, and 10-15 companies will bring out new tablet-pcs in the next coming months
(dell, wetab, archos, motorola, samsung, toshiba, asus, intel...)
so there will be plenty of things to discuss.


Hi Thorsten,

you may be right about the future. However, presently there is no need yet for the sub-fora under "Platforms".
Their creation can be postponed till necessary.

BTW, I think the main screen has too many frames.

Matthias.
Aided by engines, GMs can be very strong.

After looking at it from a couple angles, sub-forums under platform is probably unnecessary. A good description is all that is needed.

'Human Tournaments & Matches, Correspondence Games' should merge into single unit since both are human.
"Human Tournaments & Correspondence Games" ?

Sure. Some suggestions indicate that Hardware + Software + Forum Rules and Announcement could be put under General Topics.

See my proposal here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=56&p=308#p308

I'm not convinced that we need only 3 forums. A little organization is useful, but I can understand if the current structure is overwhelming.

Yeah, I would not stress about it. The post count on each forum will tell you the story of whether there are too few or too many.

Just a matter of time before consumer behaviour provides direction.
