I've seen a couple of times that the number of existing posts is actually greater than the number of posted posts. I'm a bit curious if there is a legitimate reason why it's the case (mod cloned a post or something like this)?! Or is it just a bug?

Yes, I had noticed that too but didn't have time to check what caused it. I'll have a look the next time I run into this.

PGN attachments are now automatically loaded into a Java based viewer. I've used this and similar viewers for years on other forums that I run, and I decided to give this one a try here (after CumnorChessClub asked for this feature).

Since I had some time to work on the forum I also added inline PGN. Just click the PGN button and paste the game(s) into your post (the cursor will be automatically positioned between the tags, ready for the game to be pasted).

Here is an example.

[Event "Ch World (match)"]
[Site "Moscow (Russia)"]
[Date "1985.??.??"]
[Round "24"]
[White "Karpov Anatoly (RUS)"]
[Black "Kasparov Garry (RUS)"]
[Result "0-1"]
[Annotator ""]
[BlackElo "2700"]
[Classes "0"]
[ECO "B85"]
[GameID "0"]
[Remark ""]
[Source ""]
[WhiteElo "2720"]
