I saw this question:

Can a piece pinned to my king put the opponent's king in check?

which has a chess board inserted with the [fen] tag. Is this special to Chess Stack Exchange?

    There was a question about the PGN viewer on Meta SE and it was closed because it was specific to Chess SE. – Tsundoku Dec 9 '16 at 22:23
  • @Christophe that does not help me, there was never an answer. – user11939 Dec 10 '16 at 0:47

    Did you read the close reason for that question? It says, "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. (...)". Doesn't that implicitly answer your question? – Tsundoku Dec 10 '16 at 17:09
  • @ChristopheStrobbe why would that answer my question? – user11939 Dec 10 '16 at 17:15
  • It implies that the PGN viewer was only implemented on Chess SE. Even Board & Card Games SE doesn't have one. See How should I concisely represent a chess position in a question? and Please implement the Chess replayer on Board and Card Games. – Tsundoku Dec 13 '16 at 12:43

It looks like Chess SE is the only Stack Exchange site where the PGN/FEN renderer was implemented:

  • In January 2016, someone asked a question about the PGN viewer on Meta SE, which was closed as off-topic. The argument for closing it was, "This question pertains only to a specific site in the Stack Exchange Network. Questions on Meta Stack Exchange should pertain to our network or software that drives it as a whole, (...)."
  • Outside Chess SE, Board & Card Games SE would be the site where this renderer would be most relevant. The meta site has several questions about it:
