World of Card Games supports Hand Animator format

There's already a certain level of processing done on chats at WoCG, so you shouldn't be getting dirty data. There are no carriage returns in chats.

I am willing to discuss it, but my initial reaction is that it's a bad idea - too many pitfalls, too little benefit. Example: "hey [publicly identifiable name], wtf did you throw away an Ace just now?". If people are already worried about being publicly identified in hand histories, they will not want to even visit a table where chats might be exported due to this concern. Adding a feature that scares people away from the site is not useful :/

From my own perspective, I'd rather first see this feature being used with some frequency before adding bells and whistles on it.

I will add the capability to export an entire game, given that the hand animator supports it, but I'd rather not put more time into the feature without evidence that it is popular.

I do have time for development work - it's almost all I do - but Pinochle has not taken off at WoCG. I should be working on ways to help that happen, and in addition, I have work on other games to do, too.
Play Pinochle at World of Card Games!
