This site was made for the love of the game and our community. If you found a mistake contact me (AdamR) on the OGS, I will try to fix it as soon as possible. My sincerest thanks to all the members of the OGS community who were very supportive in my efforts and kept trying to make it as good as possible. Most notably:

Lucas Westermann
Who managed the whole technical side of the project and patiently kept explaining what I need to press to make it all work.

Kosh (Faith manages), Joshua Batson
Who both wrote a portion of the texts, spent their evenings crawling through heaps of my horrible grammar and overall lifted the quality of the site monumentally.

This website uses (jGoBoard), and (very slightly modified) (WGo) javascript libraries.

This website (and costs of running it) are small, and for now I am lucky enough to be able to afford the costs of running it without trouble. However, if you REALLY like what we did, have nothing better to spend on, and would like to make sure it stays online for other beginners as well, consider sending a dollar my way. Thank you for even considering.
