While Template:TeX does not assist you in finding HTML codes or Unicode values (which you can obtain by viewing the HTML source in your browser), copying and pasting from a Template:TeX games only set formula f2 > -100 # long games, decent competition set formula f1 & !f4 -or- set formula f2 >= 0 | blitz You define an f-variable using the https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Help:Formula Computer accounts without 'f1' set to "suicide" will have challenges for suicide chess declined automatically.
