|Mar-19-17|| ||jnpope: I probably could host them over at CA|
|Mar-19-17|| ||zanzibar: <jnpope> yes, that would be great.|
Although, I should note that I think the single letter abbrevs - F (The Field), E (The Era), and S (Sissa) - might be a bit of overkill.
|Mar-22-17|| ||chessgames.com: <Here's my recommended abbreviations for source materials, largely following Zavaratelli ...
This should be hosted on <CG>, not in some individual's pages, but as a standard, shared resource.>|
If other biographers concur on the format I'm fine with that. It could go alongside our FIDE Country Codes page.
|Mar-23-17|| ||zanzibar: RE: abbrevs --
Well <chessgames>, it looks like the consensus is unanimous!

Does anybody know the title/artist/subject of this painting?
Damn pinterest commandeers the search with useless hits.
|Mar-23-17|| ||Retireborn: <z> It's called Concentration and is by Richard Earl Thompson (1914-1991)|
|Mar-23-17|| ||zanzibar: Thank you very much, <Retireborn>.|
You are indeed a cultured soul.
|Mar-23-17|| ||zanzibar: And here's a little more culture from the eastern side of the Atlantic:|
|Mar-23-17|| ||Retireborn: I'm not that cultured, but Google Images works quite well for this sort of thing - just drag & drop :)|
|Mar-23-17|| ||zanzibar: <RB> I actually tried that, thus my complaint about pinterest. |
Hmmm... wonder why it didn't work for me?
(Might be needing glasses for this late night work...)

|Mar-25-17|| ||Alpinemaster: I'm a new biographer with CG.com; just wanted to get a chance to introduce myself to you fine people and express what an honor it will be volunteering alongside you! I've had the pleasure of learning from your works all these years and look forward to contributing my own historical insights, citations and general efforts. Warmest regards, Alpinemaster|
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: Welcome <Alpinemaster>!!|
|Mar-25-17|| ||Calli: Likely dates for Alfred Jones were given in C.N. 8915 and C.N. 8924|
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: It was interesting today to see games and tournaments from 1892 in the December 1891 issue of Steinitz's <International Chess Magazine>.|
Anyone have an explanation?
|Mar-25-17|| ||Paarhufer: <TheFocus> IIRC, the December 1891 issue appeared in March or April 1892. The match with Chigorin was played in January and February 1892, and is covered in the ICM.|
|Mar-25-17|| ||crawfb5: <TheFocus: It was interesting today to see games and tournaments from 1892 in the December 1891 issue of Steinitz's <International Chess Magazine>.>|
A really bad publication lag (the issue coming out months after the nominal date) is the only thing that occurs to me. The 1891 date may have been maintained to fulfill the required number of issues for 1891 subscribers.
|Mar-25-17|| ||MissScarlett: When Fiala launched his <Quarterly for Chess History> I didn't realise it meant one issue every four years.|
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: Fiala's idea and my idea of 'quarterly' are not the same.|
|Mar-25-17|| ||MissScarlett: I wouldn't worry about Fiala; you got your own deadline.|
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: I am working many hours a day on my books.
You should see my Capablanca.
|Mar-25-17|| ||MissScarlett: I'd prefer to see that than your Fischer.|
|Mar-25-17|| ||zanzibar: And another welcome <Alpinemaster>.|
BTW- I see from your profile that you're not exactly a newbie on <CG>.
|Mar-25-17|| ||zanzibar: <Focus> what <crawfb5> said.|
<The December 1891 issue of the (ICM) did not appear until April 1892; Steinitz noted the first serious delay in its publication occured in 1889 during his match with Chigorin and his current preoccupation with his publications and journalism obliged him to suspend the magazine. He added he intended to commence a new series in January 1893 but that did not eventuate.>

(Too bad <CG> hasn't implemented the [url] tag, maybe they're waiting for Obamacare to get repealed first...)
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: I'm not even going to mention Lasker.
But is better than my Capablanca.
1520 games for Lasker in my database.
|Mar-25-17|| ||TheFocus: Thank you, <zanzibar>.|
