Just so you know, we generally consider Full Disclosure a failed experiment. It was a nice start, but too complicated to handle all the general cases. So we don't expect to take any heroic measures to support it.

Adding a file upload button to the web version probably won't be too difficult, but it's not at the top of our priority list.

I dont understand why its a failed experiment. All you need to provide is a widget to create bidding explanations.

Hooefully when the dev team is done creating things like Solitaire and Bridge Bingo there will be time for projects relevant to bridge.

The meaning of bids depends on context. The only context FD knows about is the precise sequence of bids leading up to it. This is a horribly inefficient and complicated way to create a convention card.

When it first came out I spent a bit of time playing with it.

Then I couldn't work out how to define a fourth in hand opener differently from a first in hand opener of the same bid. Doubtless there is a way but it beat me at the time. If I can't get past the first round of bidding it felt like a real uphill struggle.

Then the odd player cropped up offering to write FD files for a fee. That kind of put me off.

Then I realised that I play with too many partners each of whom would need separate FD files if I was going to do it properly.

So ultimately, I agree with the concept, but no.

My partner and I wish to play on BBO using a custom FD CC (Modified Precision Club). I have the bss file, generated using bml2css.py. But since both my partner and I created accounts after September 2012 we are unable to use the old BBO Windows version.

We are paying customers (robot rental), and we would be playing tournaments requiring payment.

Can you provide us a method of uploading our custom FD CC files? Or enable our accounts to use the old Windows version? Or should we go elsewhere?

Thank you.
