Keeping Track Of Openings:

ChessDude009

So, I made a forum to make the best openings. I'm keeping track of all of them down here.

In a while, I will grade each opening on aesthetics, and feasibility, from 1-10.

If I got your opening wrong, or missed it, I will update it.

If you feel I have graded you wrongly I will explain my reasons for grading that way and work out a deal.

Thanks to all who participated!

Those whose openings are not bolded survive to the next round!

Round 1: Complete! (This round was a quick round, with me taking glances at every opening. If it was unfit, it was bolded) All of the openings that made it past this round are at least below-average.

Round 2: Finished: Openings will be evaluated seriously, taking small faults as a weakness. Barely any openings will be bolded, except the non-serious openings which don't make much sense. All of the openings that make it past this are regular openings.

Round 3: In Progress: A serious evaluation based on aesthetics and feasibility. The top 20 openings will survive. Any openings that make it past this round are deemed serious, and good.

Round 4: Not Started: Shortening the competition, except this round will not be judged by only me. They will also be judged by a non-biased impartial judge who has not submitted an entry.

Round 5: Not Started: Choosing the final 5, the traits mentioned above are EXTREMELY important.

Round 6: Not Started: Casually choosing the placement of the top 5.

(P.S. If an opening that has made up turns out to be common, it will be disqualified. Don't think that your opening getting bolded means you lost yet!)

Enjoy!
