|Feb-06-16|| ||morfishine: <Danlanglois> Good point; I thought <gauer> was referring to an old game, but this one's still progress|
|Feb-06-16|| ||chessgames.com: <gauer> When you use a "permalink" like chessgames.com chessforum (kibitz #20029) it works forever and always. That is reply 20029 even if later replies 20028 or 20031 are deleted. Furthermore, ignore-lists are irrelevant.|
One wrinkle though: for technical reasons it doesn't work in Team Games, at least not until the game is over. We'll try to fix that.
|Feb-07-16|| ||MissScarlett: < but the general CG audience will be blind to it.>|
Why do you think they'd be interested in it? Hundreds of thousands of games are at their fingertips, so what would be the attraction of seeking out the prospect of the mostly obscure games that make up game submissions?
|Feb-07-16|| ||gauer: The only main reason that I was wondering about the 2011 playoff is that in US Championship (Group B) (2011) (kibitz #113) , the link within points to the old tid number (is there a way to report a kibitzing merge request on a tid error correction slip)?|
Also, Biographer Bistro (kibitz #12905) discussion of some big tournaments which we know would probably be incomplete and large (in terms of # of games), then would you suppose that such a solution might be an improved way to handle a list-of-names or leaderboard report? Sometimes, a player wouldn't have any/all games (in the former case, we can list players with 0 games in that way who did play...) add up to the number of rounds, if he received a bye or didn't submit a carbon-copy scoresheet.
Does the leader-board editor on a tid page allow for adding in different result values of an unforced or forced bye (and maybe also players with 0 downloadable games, but a proper score report)?
|Feb-07-16|| ||WannaBe: Java 8 update 73 confirmed. (Sorry <chancho> can't help you with that little known browser), try using Internet Explorer with Java to use CVD.|
|Feb-07-16|| ||YouRang: I just learned an unpleasant user interface thing:
There is a "Leave a comment" box at the bottom of every forum page. I can type a lengthy message there, but if I accidentally bump the Esc key, *POOF* it's all gone! Right-clicking and selecting "Undo" doesn't bring it back either.
No warning to say "are you sure you want to permanently destroy your work?" either. I thought those kinds of destructive user-interface gotchas were banned decades ago.
|Feb-08-16|| ||offramp: Any chance of a new picture of Hikaru Nakamura? The current one makes him look very young. It also has that Canadian flag in the foreground, and because Nakamura is wearing red it's a little misleading.|
|Feb-08-16|| ||chancho: Yeah, maybe this one:
|Feb-08-16|| ||offramp: <chancho>, Yes, that's a good one. But how about longer hair and a yankee flag? I mean a US flag. |
How long is Naka's hair at the moment? I always imagine him with longish hair.
|Feb-08-16|| ||zanzibar: I'm with <offramp>, Nakamura stands ready for a new photo anyways. One with a little more scruff.|
|Feb-08-16|| ||zanzibar: I'm also with <MissS> and several other posters who express a wish for better tracking of submitted games.|
|Feb-08-16|| ||zanzibar: <chessgames>/<CG> speaking of which...|
Can we reopen the topic of bulk submission, aka automatic renormalization, aka automatic tournament creation.
And if not the full-scale tournament, then automatic collection creation?
(Actually through, why not the whole enchilada? Yes, why not automatic tournament creation?)
The enchiladas are ripe and ready for picking.
|Feb-08-16|| ||WannaBe: <YouRang> I tested it with IE, FireFox, and Chrome, the behaviour you described only happen with IE. (any and all versions, IE9, IE10, IE11)|
A quick google search turned up this link: https://www.quora.com/Why-does-Inte...
Of course, with browsers disabling Java plug-in, and if you want to use Chess Viewer Deluxe, you are kinda stuck with using IE.
My recommendation, is to take a small screwdriver and pop out the ESC key and place a piece of tape over it. =))
Of course, you'd have to do it with every keyboard that you use to access CG.com.
|Feb-08-16|| ||YouRang: <WannaBe> Thanks, and you're right -- here at work where I use Chrome, I don't see the problem.|
I'll take a peek at your link. I can't believe this is considered to be an "okay" thing by Microsoft.
|Feb-08-16|| ||MissScarlett: < I'm also with <MissS> and several other posters who express a wish for better tracking of submitted games.>|
I trust that <cg.com>'s quietude is a sign that the announcement of said feature is imminent.
The lesson seems to be, only when <MissScarlett> becomes involved, do things get done around here.
|Feb-08-16|| ||TheFocus: <MissScarlett> <The lesson seems to be, only when <MissScarlett> becomes involved, do things get done around here.>|
|Feb-08-16|| ||zanzibar: <MissS> yes, indeed, your terrible, awe-inspiring, prodigiousness causes us all to tremble and quake.|
|Feb-09-16|| ||tpstar: I prefer Prodigious Inspiring Terrible Awe.
<YouRang> Don't bump the Esc key.
|Feb-09-16|| ||zanzibar: Personally, I don't like the look of a keyboard with a key popped off - though we've all had to use such at one time or another - the aesthetics is wrong.|
My preference is to shim the key up and then epoxy it in place. You know, to show you mean business in the matter.
Preferably the two tube packages that you mix yourself (avoid the syringe mixing crap). You can use the black stuff (e.g. J+B cold weld) if your keyboard is black, but the normal mix will work just fine for everyone.
|Feb-09-16|| ||twinlark: <Hi ceegee>
I think you missed this post addressed to you; Biographer Bistro (kibitz #12866)
|Feb-11-16|| ||morfishine: I was able to find Irving Chernev's player page: Irving Chernev|
But his name is not listed in the CHESS PLAYERS DIRECTORY. Is it because he's not considered 'one of the most eminent chess players in the database'?
|Feb-11-16|| ||Boomie: <chessgames.com>
This is probably not new but...
I'd like to see a calendar of upcoming events on the Search page. Failing that, can someone direct me to such a calendar on the Web?
|Feb-11-16|| ||twinlark: <Boomie>
http://www.2700chess.com/ has upcoming events that feature 2700+ players.
|Feb-11-16|| ||sonia91: Tehran leg of the FIDE Women's Grand Prix started today.|
|Feb-11-16|| ||Annie K.: PGN will be available on the official FIDE page, or so they say. ;) http://tehran2016.fide.com/en/main-...|
