January 10, 2006 Several new developments have taken place recently. I've asked Chessty for 3 new bots for the project, which if approved, will mean our total number of accounts would be 6. (3 accounts in use and 3 for testing new code.)

Some have also requested that instead of ficsteambot and two automated captains that the project should all be organized under a single account. You can give your opinion about this in our forum.
