|Oct-13-17|| ||WannaBe: Thank you!|
|Oct-13-17|| ||chessgames.com: It's official, we just opened up voting to the next Team Game that will start on November 1st. It is a kind of hybrid between the Battle of the Brains and the Thematic Challenge.|
More info here Thematic Challenge Voting Page and at the Thematic Challenge chessforum.
|Oct-13-17|| ||FSR: <chessgames.com> In case you missed it, William James Lombardy died today.|
|Oct-13-17|| ||FSR: Incidentally, I submitted a pun long ago for one of Lombardy's wins, Lombardy vs Angantysson, 1984. (The game was played at a tournament in Grindavik, Iceland).|
|Oct-14-17|| ||FSR: What the hey - Lombardy isn't Player of the Day??|
|Oct-14-17|| ||Alien Math: i wish to see how the core of the gamers would operate with the base games that <chessgames> brought forward as challenges,|
i am curious on their continuations on such basics as The Evans Gambit, The Modern Benoni and my favorite, The Immortal Draw Variation,
hoping to see people i know appear in the future games! they look promising <3
|Oct-14-17|| ||chessgames.com: <William James Lombardy died today.> I read about it here first :(|
He truly was one of the last great players from that era. We'll give him the 32-piece salute soon.
|Oct-14-17|| ||zborris8: Is there a TOS against multiple accounts? It appears there are members who do this, sometimes just to troll the others.|
|Oct-15-17|| ||chessgames.com: <zborris8> This question continues to come up so I don't doubt that you are correct in assuming it's happening.|
No it's not against the TOS per se, unless it's done for some wrongful reason, which would include cheating in our games, stuffing ballots, dodging infraction measures.
In the realm of trolling, it would be wrongful to make multiple accounts for the sake of simply being duplicitous, possibly to create the illusion that their opinion is shared (or even contested.)
If you want to bring such a case to our attention use the Whistle function on any of their posts and tell us who you think they are. We can usually tell with 96%+ accuracy unless they are extremely clever and vigilant.
|Oct-15-17|| ||chessgames.com: <We can usually tell with 96%+ accuracy> In other words, "most of the time it works most of the time" :-)|
|Oct-15-17|| ||moronovich: <In other words, "most of the time it works most of the time" :-)>|
I guess this is slighlty less than 96% - at least some of the time ;)
|Oct-16-17|| ||Tabanus: http://turneringsservice.sjakklubb.... is another, 9 GMs and 10 IMs, games at bottom.|
|Oct-16-17|| ||WannaBe: <chessgames.com> Got another analysis that just keep going... |
"Requested 2017-10-13 23:40:57" 60 second eval (Completed)
But another one requested at 2017-10-13 23:41:25 is still going. I do not remember requesting the second analysis, when the first one was done, I looked at the result and was satisfied.
I left the second one still running, in case you need/want to track down this issue/bug.
|Oct-16-17|| ||chessgames.com: <WannaBe> We know there is an issue with analyses getting 'stuck' for a variety of reasons, usually because it's bad PGN/FEN or sometimes because a duplicate request sneaks in. If we can just get the erroneous ones to disappear in a timely manner it's really just an anomaly and not a problem.|
I'm not sure, but your stuck process should be gone now—or if not, will be soon.
|Oct-16-17|| ||WannaBe: <Chessgames.com> Again, thanks, the stuck one is gone now. Without me having to terminate it.|
|Oct-19-17|| ||Transformer: There is something wrong with the New Games left menu on the homepage. Hovering over the descriptions takes you to Thematic Voting.|
|Oct-19-17|| ||chessgames.com: <Transformer> Thanks a lot, you were right. A simple typo, easy to fix.|
Similarly: there was a bug for the past 12 or so hours regarding parts of the new Analysis Laboratory, particularly trying new moves. People actually received server errors. It's been remedied now.
|Oct-20-17|| ||Phony Benoni: The Olga board looks like it's going to work well, but something weird just happened.|
I was adding today's puzzle to my Friday puzzle collection. So, as usual, I opened the drop-drown menu listing my collections, typed "F" to go the collectoons beginning with "f" --
And instead of going to that area in the dorop-down list the board was flipped.
|Oct-20-17|| ||chessgames.com: Good catch Phony—I know how to fix that; it just never occurred to me that there would be interference on a pulldown menu. I forgot that you can type keys for shortcuts.|
|Oct-20-17|| ||Check It Out: I'm seeing ads above the games. I'm signed in, on mobile device. Never seen that before.|
|Oct-20-17|| ||Phony Benoni: <chessgames.com> Fixed. Thanks!|
|Oct-20-17|| ||whiteshark: <chessgames> It seems that for some reason rd 13-15 games of Bundesliga (2016/17) are still missing.|
Here's the DL-link: http://schachbundesliga.de/sites/de...
btw <Bundesliga 2017/18> will start tomorrow... ;)
|Oct-21-17|| ||chessgames.com: <I'm seeing ads above the games. I'm signed in, on mobile device. Never seen that before.> Very sorry, that’s not supposed to happen. We’ll correct that shortly.|
|Oct-21-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: < chessgames.com: It's official, we just opened up voting to the next Team Game that will start on November 1st. It is a kind of hybrid between the Battle of the Brains and the Thematic Challenge.>|
So the title of this activity is obvious:
Battle of the Challenged Brains
|Oct-21-17|| ||chessgames.com: OK, a few things:
Mobile ads now gone on mobiles (if you are signed in).
Bundesliga (2016/17) should now be updated.
We have the Ivanchuk - Wei Yi (2017) and Van Foreest - Adhiban (2017) matches on the homepage.
Also we're working on Olga, our fix for Apple iOS issues created a landslide of new issues for Android users. We're working on it.
