My gosh, there is no context given for the second half of the article, not describing what the pieces are. --Hojimachongtalk 12:41, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

What's the source on the pieces being added? Curious to read more.-AmesGyo! 15:26, 13 April 2007 (EDT)

I'll get on it. By the way, is anybody interested in playing email chess? MountainDew 17:13, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

I'll do the email chess MD;
ON Topic: we're going to need diagrams for to spell out moves and strategies, as chess is such a visual game. I don't have a clue where to get them though. Also a section on chess notation would be handy. Crackertalk 16:14, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

I'm kansaspatzer if anyone is on Gameknot.

A section on chess notation would be excellent! MountainDew 16:18, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

I like the shot of the individual pieces; can it be flipped, R-L? that way the text will correspond more naturally with the photo; conversely we can rev the text. Your call. Crackertalk 16:20, 15 April 2007 (EDT)

several small edits

Since this article looks like the hard work of probably one editor, I wanted to call attention to the fact that I just made several small edits in a row. You might want to look at each one to make sure I didn't mess up your article. By the way, is the "descriptive" method of noatation coming soon? Human 16:04, 12 May 2007 (EDT)

Break article up into smaller articles?

This article is rather long, perhaps should we break some of it off into separate articles, such as one on chess notation? DanH 21:13, 30 October 2007 (EDT)

elitist game?

"The game used to be treated as a status symbol of education and aristocracy but in recent times has become to be known as an elitist's game."

This is highly questionable and frankly sounds absurd to me, esp. without any citation to back it up. If anything, the rise of the internet has broadened the appeal of chess and made it less of an elitist game in recent times. RightOfCenter 11:22, 9 May 2008 (EDT)

omissions

There's no mention of postal chess (email chess), live chess, blindfold, or simultaneous chess, nor of the classic variations like "fairy chess", etc. Canuck 23:36, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Canuck, this is a wiki. That means editors can and do improve entries rather than whine about them.--Aschlafly 23:50, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
