    I'd say start with an easier program. Chess is generally not a basic program to make.

    In any event, use code tags.

    My guess is if you can't figure out code tags then you might want to hold off on something tricky like chess.

    Especially if you're always going to blame something else for your own ineptitude.

    Omg!!! He Must Be 1337 Hax0rz!

    By the way, fischerandom, cool little thing you got there. Nice way to design a chess board on a program.

    Thank you SlyMaelstrom. If wanting a simple ASCII-symbol based chessboard, its ok, but not good. To just get started with some output of a chessboard without having a GUI ready I could live with it. I didn't know I was banned?

    He meant Salem. Yeah, it seems not too good for a game, but it seems very good for depicting standing models of postioning.

    Now that's COMEDY!
    Dude, how many references to code tags does it take?
    That's [code][/code] (you can't touch this)

    OK I could put the representation of the chessboard inside of the code tags, but it is not code so it would be an abuse of the code tags, right? Inside of code tags should be only code, nothing else. Its still wrong, I think, that the server removes whitespace in the beginning of a line, etc., why does it do that what's the point? Did you assist in, or write the server code Salem?

    Well in the absense of a [chess] tag just for you, I guess you should use whatever option produces the most presentable display for whatever it is you're trying to say.
    Code tags just happen to result in something which is monospaced and indented for everyone.

    The thread was pointless, and now it's off-topic, and I'm not going to argue tag semantics with you.
