Idea: Unr, No Comp, Match

I was wondering if it was possible to setup a new competition option for chess.

Just a 2 game unrated match where both players agree no computer. Each person has W&B.

This is more appealing to me than No engine tournament where the ratings/pairings are from people that have played rated corr w/comps. We can agree to play friends in 2 games.

Unrated (no computer) matches

Hi Daniel, this has to be discussed. This would be on another path than the "competitive" way the server followed until there, particularly to avoid the "just for a glance" games that are just thrown and lost on time after a few moves like on most other correspondence chess servers... But after all maybe most players here wouldn't do it because they also play rated tournaments.

The other point is "confusion" because of too many tournaments... Many new players are still lost when arriving here and I feel I have some work to make it clearer before to add such new categories... To be continued.

Re: Thib

Understood, maybe it is an idea you can hold in your back pocket until later. I think it would be cool to have eventually but I see you have more pressing concerns.
