Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 215 OF 242 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Mar-11-12  frogbert: far away from any title that have any meaning, imho. and at a rate of around 10 classical (rated) games per year i should be happy to maintain my skills/rating at the current level.

btw, i've never been serious about improving at chess - even as a student i played only 25-30 games per year (at most) and spent more time organizing chess and otherwise helping with stuff in the club than actually studying chess. when i occasionally pick a chess book from the shelf these days, it's just because i enjoy reading about stuff, not because i have any ambition of improving. my "chess career" (as a player) was basically over before it started, since i put my feet in a chess club for the first time when i was 20. :o)

Mar-19-12  frogbert: copy of post


<I don't envy <cg>'s job trying to keep the peace...and they are trying.>

yes, they probably are, but there are a couple of problems.

1) they are seemingly understaffed, at least in some sense.

2) the available tools and the "technical" structure of the site (forums, pages) make it hard to handle the kind of issues we're seeing; maybe a more distributed form of "moderation" could've been implementable if there was more structure to build it upon.

3) the apparant tendency to "reward" those who make the most noise in the (regardless of reason) does not scale very well - it inevitably leads to more new issues than it solves.

4) it appears that a more revolutional "root cause analysis" might be needed, where one is willing to rethink a couple of factors that currently seem to be outside the scope of consideration.

returning to us, the users and kibitzers of this site, i think there are a few things most of us would do good to consider. most of the problems i observe around here are due to the following, imo:

1) there seems to be a worrying lack of tolerance for people who hold different opinions and beliefs than oneself, and way too many arguments go personal instead of focusing on the topic of debate. discuss what the other kibitzers say and argue, not who you think they are and what you assume are their motives. (because a) you don't know, and b) it's inflammatory)

2) there also seems to be a considerable tendency for passing judgment and making accusations instead of giving others the benefit of the doubt or leaving room/time for people to change their ways. there aren't bad people or good people - we're all human beings and we do good things most of the time and bad things some of the time. the big majority tries to do their best most of the time.

3) if all of us would mainly watch ourselves and make sure to keep our own path clean, we could safely leave to the site administration to take care of the few missteps that people are bound to make. we don't need private lynch mobs, "troops" or "site patrols" who think it's their task to take care of "unwanted behaviour". we don't need their cheerleaders either. those initiatives make the problem worse, not better; blow the whistle or write an email to the admins and *accept* what they choose to do (or not do) about it.

4) and if you absolutely need to interfere with how other people here behave, then try watching your *friends' behaviour* and be a friendly corrective for those who already respect and believe in you. if you can't convince a friend to change his/her ways, you can forget about making someone you openly despise listen to what you have to say.

those were my 2 cents.

  Bureaucrat: Excellent post.
Mar-21-12  MarkFinan: Hey Frogbert, its me nemesistic iv'e just changed my username to my real name... Am i still okay to post the odd "immortal" here? ;)
Mar-21-12  frogbert: even normal chess games, like the ones we mortals play, are welcome. :o)

btw, i hope you've read the post of mine above/below from march 19th. being my friend *might* result in honest and sincere comments, also on other things than your chess games. but if you're up for it, then no problem!

Mar-21-12  MarkFinan: Oh...Im up for it alright :)
Mar-21-12  MarkFinan: BTW, what happened to Rogge's forum? I liked that guy.
Mar-21-12  frogbert: nothing happened, he simply keeps it clean. technically he considers it an area for pms (private messages, not prime ministers). hence, don't invest too heavily in posts there, unless you make copies or don't care if everything's suddenly gone tomrrow. :o)
Mar-21-12  MarkFinan: No i don't care about that, im not trying to rack up a post count, its just i looked a few days ago and there was the "There is no kibitzing on this page yet" message!

And you've lost me with Prime Minister's... Tell me another time lol ;)

Mar-21-12  frogbert: yes, pray and tell, minister!

  rogge: <MarkFinan> Hi, <frog>'s right. I even commented on your game, but no one replied, and eventually I cleaned up the place :)
Mar-21-12  MarkFinan: <rogge> I must have missed that mate, but it was only a 300 second blitz game (and i cant play at those time controls!) so i didn't think anyone else but you and frogbert would look at it, but thanks for taking the time to look anyway..

Iv'e got loads of games from the last few years written down somewhere, so if you like i could post one of my best efforts?

Oh yeh, in my dad's attic iv'e got all my old tourney games from when i was a kid (i were stronger then than i am now), and even somewhere a game against GM Short (a loss in a simul) and a game against ex British champ Brian Eley (a win in a simul)... They'll be all P-QB4 style notations, because they're all mid 80's games... I'll dig them out when iv'e got the time :)

  rogge: <Iv'e got loads of games from the last few years written down somewhere, so if you like i could post one of my best efforts?> Sure, any time. I fed the beast and had Rybka look at the game you posted, which probably is the best I can offer :)

Btw like others have said, I didn't like <Lennonfan> much, <Nemesistic> and <MarkFinan> are far better ;)

Mar-22-12  MarkFinan: Well Lennonfan had an agenda..bless him lol

But, we live and learn.

My first username here was actually markcf, so iv'e never *really* tried hiding who i am, i was just naive!

Well you just don't think of chess players as the argumentitive type, but they were pre conceived idea's i guess... If you understand me lol..

Anyway Rogge, i will post the odd game at your yard i appreciate that..

Premium Chessgames Member
  rogge: I just read your bio, <Mark>, and I'm impressed with your honesty. Well done!
Premium Chessgames Member
  soldal: Here's a song for you, Mark. Good luck!

Mar-22-12  MarkFinan: Thanks guy's.. I really do appreciate your kind words..

I can't change the past (they *drill* that into you in rehab!), but i can affect the present, to alter my future for the better..

BTW I do now consider my "problems" to be long behind me, so i just want to come here and talk chess, and no doubt football, conspiracy theories, site politics etc.. But the more i think of "chess wars" (of which im guilty!)... The more i literally LOL... Who cares what the next guy's doing, as long as they arne't bothering me..

Mar-25-12  frogbert: here i missed a decisive manouver:

theory here is 7. Qe4 btw, but i return the favour here:

just 9... 0-0 is better than what i played. you still can't win the pawn on d5 due to the discovered check.

Mar-25-12  frogbert: apparently i should've played Ne5 both on move 13 and 14, and you should've tried Ne4 both on move 13 and 14. i.e. also here, after i played 13... h6:

Mar-25-12  frogbert: hah. i <did> indeed blunder, but this one i didn't see at all. nice combo for white here!

click for larger view

white to play and win!

Mar-25-12  MarkFinan: No mate, keep it up if you like..

You know when your having one of them days, when you just cant see *nothing*... I'm having one of them!

If you look back at that handle, i was beating 2200+ last year!!

And check out the "progress graph"!

So i wouldn't look too far into this game as a level of my current strength, i can play much much better, as you can see if you go to the fics database..

Well.... I made about 3 key blunders, and ended up with a lost endgame, although i did think at one point i may be able to promote the c pawn!

I'd love to give you a 60 min game though?? Maybe not today though lol..

Mar-25-12  MarkFinan: Nf6+ (?)

i saw it and was going to go for it, but you put a bishop on e7, and thats the *only* real idea i had!!

Mar-25-12  frogbert: we could play a 60 min game some day, but today i'm to worn out already. slept too little tonight, only 3-4 hours or so.

i think the clearest strategical mistakes maybe came on move 17 and 18 when you allowed me to get the bishop pair. compare

and then we both made some tactical oversights, of course.
