chessgames.com: Thanks for pointing that out. The two scores are considerably different ( http://www.chessgames.com/perl/dupe... ) so I'll assume the more recent version is updated and correct.

  twinlark: Hi ceegee

I'd like to recommend a small change to the bios. Many players are registered with federations in countries in which they are not citizens. Hence the country of origin/citizen of country dichotomy is false, eg: Wesley So is not a US citizen, and nor has Naiditsch suddenly become a citizen of Azerbaijan, afaik.

Taking a cue from FIDE's player cards, eg Caruana's: https://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml..., a small global change such as "federation" instead of "citizen of USA" would make this clear. That is instead of "citizen of the United States of America", simply substitute "Federation: United States of America".

  MissScarlett: Where are my games!? Just wave them through; the rest you can check. The simul game between Capa and Holben is particularly good.

  Tabanus: <MissScarlett> How long have you waited? The games I submitted games about 6 weeks ago are still not in.

  MissScarlett: Three weeks or so since the last batch appeared. Let's be clear - I'm not asking for special treatment, I'm just expecting it.

  Tabanus: Me too :))

<CG> Please check if the 17 missing games from 18th DSB Kongress (1912) are in? To judge from the kibitzing they were submitted by <perf> Jun-20-14.

  MarkFinan: I just wanted to say that when I <thought> I was seeing the text on the kibitzing in red, I really was. I took a screenshot from when I was seeing red (!?) and another one the day after when I wasn't seeing red. One of the screenshots is still red, one of the screenshots is black. I wasn't seeing things basically.

  chessgames.com: <Tab> I see that perfidious uploaded some games from that tournament a long time back (over a year ago), for example Z Barasz vs Z von Balla, 1912, but I don't see any trace of the missing games. perfidious's upload queue is currently empty.

  Tabanus: <CG> Ok, thanks. Then I'll try to find out which 16 games are missing and send them to you. 365Chess have them all, if only they can be trusted.

E Cohn vs Z Barasz, 1912 belongs to 18th DSB Kongress (1912).

  Tabanus: <CG> And thanks for processing a lot of my slips! There is a bulk remaining on Site for US events (see my forum header), hope you will find time for those also.

On Philip Remington England I found this pretty good picture (taken in or before 3 February 1926): http://images.npg.org.uk/800_800/8/.... It's on this site (I hope you can use it): http://www.npg.org.uk/collections/s...

What do you think of my suggestion?

  Peligroso Patzer: The game M E Osborne vs J Hawkins, 2015 is duplicated in your database.

This causes Jonathan Hawkins to be credited with one more point than he has actually earned in the standings that appear on the page for the British Championships (2015).

  chessgames.com: <E Cohn vs Z Barasz, 1912 belongs to 18th DSB Kongress (1912).> Got it.

<The game M E Osborne vs J Hawkins, 2015 is duplicated in your database.> I merged them but that creates a real mess when you look at the comparisons of the games http://www.chessgames.com/perl/dupe.... I didn't study it but there must be some repetition of moves in one of the games. If we find out the alternate score is correct, send in a correction slip to switch it back.

  Tabanus: <CG> Thanks for/congrats with 18th DSB Kongress (1912) which now appears to be squeeky clean! <MissScarlett> It goes both ways. It also gives us a great hobby. They are surely thankful, in spite of the "history geeks" who give them loads of work.

Scratchett.. One look at your racist posts in the cafe and being thanked is the last thing you can expect!

I think the site's doing okay with or without you Scratchers.

Aug-04-15  Boomie: <Chessgames.com>

In the British Championships Tournament, there are duplicate games.

M E Osborne vs J Hawkins, 2015

M E Osborne vs J Hawkins, 2015

This is especially annoying as it places Hawkins at the top whereas he's a half a point behind the leaders.
