The Open Study Room will soon support OGS API and I wanted to introduce ourselves and see if there is an interest for that in OGS community.
Is there players interest to take part in it?
Can we find some active OSR members to help us animate the thing?
Can we find go teachers to teach in here ?
For those who don’t know, the Open Study Room is a community of go players who plays long serious games in leagues, study together, set up lectures.
It’s all free, community driven, run by vounteers and the code of our website is Free software.
It’s quite recent (started in last February) but growing fast.
For some reasons, I started this on KGS: I knew players and teachers there and I was familiar with KGS archives system. Since the very start, some users are requesting for us to support OGS and I am working on that at the moment. I expect to finish in about a month. That means OSR users will be able to play their leagues game either on KGS or OGS. Their choice.
I think we are going to have leagues with all players in it and games played on both servers. We could also have dedicated OGS leagues if that’s wanted.
I know the Nova league was doing great job in that area but I fear it stopped. If there are plans for this to restart, maybe we can work together?
So my post here is to introduce OSR to the OGS community and see if there is an interest for such in there: Would you guys like that? Would you play in it?
We are a small team running OSR and it’s taking quite some time to animate our discord, KGS room, OSR website. So I was wondering if some friendly motivate player would like to give us a hand to animate the OGS part of OSR. Won’t be much work since we work as a team, but extra manpower would be appreciated.
Also, teaching is a big part of such projects. Can we find strong teachers to teach in here and maybe organise lectures, game commentary or such ?
Allright guys, feel free to tell me what you think about all that.
