Done! Please join Team Blasty on the superior (and free) chess platform. Code is 1989.

Need someone with photoshop skills to add flaming snot to the lichess logo.

I've joined team Blasty! Haven't played in a couple years and am not amazing, but really looking forward to getting back into it!

For the chess.com club, I started a game of vote chess, if anyone wants to play. It will be one move every 12 hours.

nice idea on the club! in relation to the scandal, I think the next time magnus plays hans, hans will need to go through an airport security type thing. therefore if anything, magnus calling him out has definitely increased security on this guy

I joined lichess as cpwoob, so you can all make fun of me on here for how bad I am. Any other beginners out there, or am I destined to get smoked every game?

The brutal thing about chess is we are all beginners! But in all seriousness it looks like we have a range of abilities—you should be just fine!

I am GrettirTPH on lichess—feel free to send me a challenge!

I kind of wish we all stuck with one chess app, because I don’t think I need more than that!

What time controls do you guys play? I’m a big fan of 10+5 rapid and also play classical if I have the time. Have played some blitz and am horrible.

Adafruit replicates the chess cheating morse code butt plug system and tests it with a slab of pork. Concludes while possible, it is highly unlikely it would have been discrete.

It's pretty amazing to think about the culmination of technology and effort that went into this and how little it did to further the human condition.

It’s shocking. All of it to debunk a far fetched cheating theory that started out as a joke but for some reason gained momentum as an actual thing….

Meanwhile you can also just hide an iPhone in the bathroom and use that to access stockfish while you’re away from the board.

It might not be a bad idea to make a general chess discussion thread.

Anything can be a device for cheating if you're brave enough.
