I wish you well being

Post by Tokin on Mon Sep 14, 2009 6:02 am

Hi,

I'm Andrei Lysenka from Minsk (Belarus). I started shogi 7 years ago but I'm still a weak player Sad . When I heard about this forum I was not thinking: "Why do we need something else?"...

In fact, the internet shogi world can be categorized into three groups: "old" players, newcomers and popularizers (Perhaps this is what you had in mind). For the first category, Shogi-L is an ideal format to communicate. The third group uses every opportunity to spread the game. The discussion groups with uninhibited "unintellectual" atmosphere is needed for the second category. Such forums have emerged and will emerge in the future. Its life cycle usually depends on the activity of the founders. So, when I heard about this forum I just was glad that there are new fans of the best board game. And I hope (and wish) that the initial enthusiasm of "The 81 square universe" founders lasts for a long time.

Welcome to the 81 Square Universe, Tokin!

Perhaps your assessment of the internet shogi world is more correct than mine. I'm glad to see that you agree on the idea that the shogi world needed a forum like this. I have been meaning to make something such as this for a while, but I never knew how it would be received - I never went through with it until 105 pushed me along with this specific forum.

Shogi Prospect almost accomplished the task of creating a casual atmosphere, but it seems to have fallen out of use lately - with new members not even getting so much as a hello from the administration! We certainly hope to change that at the 81 Square Universe. So enjoy your stay here, and don't be afraid to jump into or start a new discussion thread. Smile
