I was really hopeful that there might be more regular updates to the client and/or server when the AGF took over ownership of KGS, but they haven't seemed to do anything with it since assuming ownership. I still play there somewhat regularly, but the recent thread about a new member trying (and failing) to start playing on KGS made me realize how poor the experience is for newcomers. Has anyone heard anything about planned development?

KGS is a dead community walking. When WMS dropped his baby, it was doomed. It will still work a couple of years and then die out, just like with Netscape. OGS or Foxxy are the up and coming online stuff with IGS/Tygem kind of in between: not dead, but not living either.

If you look here https://www.usgo.org/go-internet I would be tempted to say No

As the Vice President of the AGF, and the KGS Liaison, we have been looking for solutions for a long time. I have just written a piece for the EJ on this: https://www.usgo.org/news/2019/05/help- ... go-server/

I'm glad to see you're reaching out for help. I want to see as many successful, well-run go servers as possible!

That's nice. Although it used to be the case that people who asked to be admins on KGS were blacklisted from that role :)

Lol, perhaps that was a time when there were a great deal more users! Any admin needs to be vetted of course, but if the vetting policy is too stringent, you won't have any admins! I have had a strong response to my request for both admins and programmers, I am pleased to report, and many of them are from people who are well known and well regarded in the Go community already.
