Tabanus: The same handful of buttheads polluting thousands of player pages, on a regular basis, with CG's blessing.
   Aug-30-16 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Tabanus: Very well. I apologize to the person (whoever it was) who wrote the bio of Louis Stumpers . I am sorry that your contribution got lost and cannot be retrieved. My apology also to those who are genuinely sorry that Stumpers' bio has gone. The two others had no real bios. On Jeremy ...
   Aug-21-16 Petur Zophoniasson
Tabanus: Pétur Zóphóníasson's obituary in Alþýðublaðið, 27 February 1946, p. 7:

Tabanus: Good morning. I spent some time with bios and hopefully some other useful stuff. But I am now down to the level with the other trolls. I have no other option but to close my forum and leave the site. Thanks to CG and my friends for the joy I did have.
   Jul-13-16 Wolf Meyer Popert
Tabanus: Wolf Meyer Popert it is! It can be changed, if necessary. Can someone please fill in dob and dod? Born 19 March 1795, died 3 September 1846. And thanks to <thomastonk> for excellent research.

   Jun-29-16 Jacek Pyrowicz (replies)
Tabanus: The FIDE rating says 1872, but the pgn says WhiteElo 860 (this should probably be 1860).
   Jun-24-16 Scott Fitzgerald Massey (replies)
Tabanus: <knightmassey> CG processes my other correction slips but refuses to transfer the FIDE rating to Scott Massey (and change 1989 into 1925). Sorry for that.
   Jun-23-16 Daniel Andersen
Tabanus: At least it was Daniel (not Dan) who played against Carlsen in 2004, see Daniel Andersen ... and move the non-Dan games over there.
   Jun-22-16 Rui Camejo Almeida (replies)
Tabanus: According to , 3 January 2016: <É com grande tristeza que a Direção da Associação de Xadrez do Porto anuncia a perda do Mestre Rui Camejo Almeida da Academia de Xadrez de Gaia. Treinador, jogador, dirigente, formador, Rui Almeida foi sempre ...
