Lichess Feedback - Idea for anticheat system #7

General Chess Discussion - Why is the analysis board sometimes an authoritarian cheapskate? #21

This is from 2014 but is a good starting point : https://lichess.org/blog/U4sjakQAAEAAhH9d/how-training-puzzles-are-generated I don't see why single blunders wouldn't make for good puzzles. Ridicul…
