|Dec-06-18|| ||Stonehenge: Some suspect users here, I think Daniel had a program to search and destroy this kind of stuff, but I'm not sure.|
|Dec-06-18|| ||Stonehenge: User: Gazaillese3|
etc, I guess.
|Dec-06-18|| ||whiteshark: and some more 'fresh accounts':
|Dec-06-18|| ||OhioChessFan: A program to detect a link without "www" in it in the profile would be an easy start to addressing the matter.|
|Dec-06-18|| ||jes47: Comment re Guess the Move feature.
On numerous occasions I have made a move which Guess the Move said was inferior. When I load the position in Stockfish, I find that my move is Stockfish's preferred move or 1st alternative after 20+ ply. I don't know how you determine your scoring, but if the tool is to have any value, the scoring must have some validity. Please check your scoring against Stockfish , a GM, or another engine before posting.
The latest example of poor scoring: Tal-Petrosian 1957, 15 Rg1. Guess the Move rejects this in favor of 16 Qg5. Stockfish gives 15 Rg1 as dead even (0.00), and gives 16 Qg5 as advantage to black (-0.50) at 25 ply. Infuriating.
Also, If you update the score with every move, it would be nice to update the par with every move -- i,e, don't show the par score for the total game, just for the moves played.
|Dec-06-18|| ||Annie K.: <jes47> you're right. GtM still runs with the old Toga engine, which should really be replaced by our new Stockfish. There had been plans for this - thanks for bringing the issue back up. |

Interesting idea, I like it. :)
|Dec-06-18|| ||WannaBe: Forum for London Classic? Pleeeeeeease?|
|Dec-06-18|| ||zanzibar: <Stonehenge>/<Whiteshark> OK, I'm curious - how do you find new members on <CG>??|
I used Google Search with a couple of obvious phrasing to find this unlisted new member:
Are you guys using a similar technique?
|Dec-07-18|| ||Stonehenge: |
I looked at <Recent Visitors> and I saw some strange usernames.
Like User: 6giannae192gh7
|Dec-07-18|| ||Stonehenge: User: VisamibrBlensype, User: NathanFam, and there are more but I'll stop here.|
|Dec-07-18|| ||Diademas: Any chance of including the latest AlphaZero games?
|Dec-07-18|| ||zanzibar: <Diademas> WannaBe already submitted the lot.|
Let's see if it's our good lot for them to be soon accepted.
|Dec-07-18|| ||zanzibar: Thanks <Stonehenge>, I was wondering about what technique you used.|
Doing a Google search on the following:
<"Member since Dec-07-18" http:// site:chessgames.com>
Yields this list:
Doing a https search yields a more select crowd:
<"Member since Dec-07-18" https:// site:chessgames.com>
All of these users just joined today and immediately added a link in their profile page. Which is a little suspect, but I haven't really checked the obvious.
|Dec-07-18|| ||zanzibar: Wonder if <CG> is ever going to add a "verbatim mode" for comments.|
Having to periodically lookup </> is getting a bit old (as is typing the entity's entity!)
|Dec-07-18|| ||offramp: Perhaps these odd New Users are using some kind of trick to move higher in Google search rankings.|
|Dec-09-18|| ||Susan Freeman: <Zanzibar > I was actually after Daniel about that same thing. It was about my web site though. Kids!|
|Dec-10-18|| ||SugarDom: Your blow whistle never functions.
Here I am reporting somebody copying my name because it might confuse others, but you don't do anything.
<SugarDoomed: By the way looking at your picture, if you happened to visit the Manila Zoo, you can get inside the apes' cage to have your picture taken. The apes won't notice any difference, you look exactly like them. Enjoy.>
|Dec-10-18|| ||SugarDom: I will complain here everyday, if I have to.|
|Dec-10-18|| ||Count Wedgemore: Yes, get that sorted out as soon as possible <CG>. Surely it can't be allowed to make a username almost identical to one that's already in use. |
I hope you take swift action and help my friend <SugarDom> with this issue.
