|Aug-18-12|| ||twinlark: <Kate for Bob>...yeah, I see the resemblance.|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Benzol: Game Collection: Budapest 1921 is another tournament that has been updated.|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Karpova: In case it's necessary, here are the dates of the rounds of Game Collection: Ostend 1905 tournament according to pages 263 to 269 of the 1905 'Wiener Schachzeitung'|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Karpova: Updated Game Collection: Ostend 1905 by User: suenteus po 147 with the dates provided above.|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Benzol: Game Collection: Paris 1925 has been updated.|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Phony Benoni: We're now up to 75 events: Game Collection: Tournaments Updated with Round/Date Information|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Benzol: Take your pick Game Collection: Dresden 1926 or Game Collection: 99_Dresden 1926|
|Aug-18-12|| ||Calli: Game Collection: Baden-Baden 1870 is now Gooden-Gooden|
Note: Collection appears to have games missing, but I assume that if Peter Fontaine could not find them, then they are lost scores.
|Aug-19-12|| ||Karpova: There is no game collection for the Scheveningen Tournament (1. Hauptturnier, Nederlandse Schaakbond) from 1905.07.31 to 1905.08.10 which was won by Marshall ahead of Leussen, Spielmann, Duras, Swiderski and others and I can't create a new one. But if anyone should ever want to do that, here are the dates of the rounds from page 61 of the 1906 'Wiener Schachzeitung':|
|Aug-19-12|| ||GrahamClayton: Some more name corrections:
Von Oettingen S – Serge Von Oettingen
Dannebrog Nelson Hald – Nelson Hald (he lived in Dannebrog, Nebraska)
Landgraf – Siegfried Landgraf
R Kaimo – Roberto E Kaimo
Lundquist - Doug Lundquist
I have also requested the date of birth for Iskir Kurass to be added to his page - 26.06.1998
|Aug-19-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <GrahamClayton> Biographers can update birth/death dates, so I've taken care of Kurass. I assume you meant death date.|
|Aug-19-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Karpova> There may be a problem with Scheveningen 1905. Our database seems to be missing some games, but that's no big deal; <chess365.com> appears to have them all, so submitting the missing ones will be easy.|
However, there is little indication of round numbers on individual games. We have round numbers for all of Marshall's game, which would be enough to place had the Berger pairing system been used. However, that doesn't appear to have been done here.
I'm checking some periodicals right now, and will at least scramble up something to which round numbers can be added later.

That's not necessary, have a look: http://anno.onb.ac.at/cgi-content/a...
|Aug-19-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Karpova> Thanks! I was hoping you had something up your sleeve.|
|Aug-19-12|| ||GrahamClayton: <Phony Benoni>Biographers can update birth/death dates, so I've taken care of Kurass. I assume you meant death date.|
Thanks - Yes I meant date of death.

|Aug-20-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Game Collection: Scheveningen 1905 and Game Collection: Stockholm 1912 (Nordic Chess Congress) will be added when submitted games arrive. Also, I'm updating (and uprounding) Game Collection: Vienna 1898.|
|Aug-20-12|| ||crawfb5: A "minor" tournament, but Alekhine's first as WC (Game Collection: Bradley Beach 1929) is complete, so it could be added to the list for completeness' sake.|
|Aug-21-12|| ||Benzol: Given what happened with the last game collection of <Resignation Trap> that I attempted to update here's hoping that Game Collection: London International Chess Congress, 1932 will not require any further corrections. However, don't quote me on that.|

S Vorkapich - Slavko Vorkapich
S Schamach – Seymour Schamach

|Aug-21-12|| ||Benzol: Game Collection: Berlin 1928 has now been updated.|
|Aug-22-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Just finished updating Game Collection: Vienna 1898. What a fight between Tarrasch and Pillsbury. |
In the first half of the tournament both scored 15/19, or 79%. The second half must have fatigued them, since they could only score 13.5/18, or 75%.
Poor Janowski. He scored 13/18 in the second half, beat both of the leaders, and still lost ground.
|Aug-22-12|| ||chessgames.com: Small format change:
If you link to a Wikipedia article in a biography now it will automatically show up as "Wikipedia article: _______". See the end of the Robert James Fischer biography for an example. Instead of showing you the URL with the "http://" etc., now it just says <Wikipedia article: Bobby Fischer>. It works on any Wikipedia article (even non-English ones).
What this means of course is that we'll have to stop the practice of saying "Wikipedia article: (link)" and instead just drop the link in place. It's intended to make things easier for both the editors and the readers.
|Aug-22-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <chessgame.com> Something interesting about the Wikipedia links. I just checked a few biographies, and these links look like this one for Morphy:|
However, if I go down to the editing area and just press the "Update" button (even without making any changes to the bio) the link now appears as intended:
<Wikipedia article: Paul Morphy>
|Aug-23-12|| ||chessgames.com: The changes don't happen until somebody makes a change to the biographies. |
This is intentional. The thinking is that somebody should take a look at the Wikipedia link to avoid the redundant "Wikipedia Article: Wikipedia Article ___" effect.
Of course we're not going to have special formatting like this with every site, but Wikipedia is big enough to justify special treatment.
