  Annie K.: <Tab> I know - we're just working on some new upload options, so I'm waiting with the imports until I can get them into the database with the right gametypes set from the start. Maybe even today. :)

  kingscrusher: Hi there

Something seems up with the PGN for castling on one game recently :

[Event "GCT St. Louis Rapid & Blitz"]
[Site "St Louis, MO USA"]
[Date "2019.08.10"]
[EventDate "2019.08.08"]
[Round "3"]
[Result "1-0"]
[White "Magnus Carlsen"]
[Black "Leinier Dominguez Perez"]
[ECO "D35"]
[WhiteElo "2882"]
[BlackElo "2763"]
[PlyCount "59"]

1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. cxd5 Nxd5 5. e4 Nxc3 6. bxc3 c5 7. Rb1 Be7 8. h4 OO 9. h5 h6 10. Qg4 f5 11. Qg3 Kh8 12. Nh3 cxd4 13. Nf4 Kh7 14. Bc4 Bg5 15. OO Nc6 16. Ng6 Re8 17. Rd1 Bxc1 18. Rbxc1 Qg5 19. exf5 exf5 20. cxd4 Bd7 21. Qc7 Rad8 22. d5 Nd4 23. Qg3 Re4 24. Qxg5 hxg5 25. f3 Ne2 + 26. Kf2 Nxc1 27. fxe4 Rc8 28. Rxc1 b5 29. e5 Be8 30. d6 1-0

There is OO as opposed to O-O

which is why Chessbase doesn't like the paste of the PGN right now

http://www.chessgames.com/perl/nph-...

Not sure if this is just isolated though to that particular game. Maybe it is just this one.

Cheers, K

  Tabanus: <Annie> I hope we're not having an edit war on Abu Dhabi Masters (2019).
Aug-11-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: <morfishine> of course we do. But, just as in the past, that doesn't guarantee that we will consider every complaint justified.

<Tryfon> I think the PGN there may have had em dashes instead of regular hyphens. Try again please?

<Tab> oh no, I only meant to add the link to the Leko - Morozevich side event there. Not sure how those lines got deleted... either I selected them by accident or my computer loaded the page from cache with the text from my previous edit - I'll have to watch out for that sort of thing. Sorry about that. Good thing we have the backups! :)

  Tabanus: <Annie> No problem. I just copied from the backup :)

  Tabanus: <Annie> Biel Master Open (2019) rd. 9 games are missing.

Perhaps at TWIC https://theweekinchess.com/chessnew... or https://www.365chess.com/tournament..., he latter has 180 games.

Aug-16-19

  Tabanus: Thanks Annie.

The Biel Master Open (2019) is linked to at Biel (2019), but it can't be kibitzed or edited. Results are at http://chess-results.com/tnr457115....

  Annie K.: <Tab> I didn't think it would draw enough interest to rate the whole works, since it's only a partial record with missing games. But if you want to write it up, I can activate the headers and kibitzing for it. :)

<CIO> we'll put them back right when we find them! :) Srsly, this is now at my top second priority, and should move into first place very soon. I know people are missing the feature, and it shouldn't be very difficult to restore once we focus on it.

Aug-16-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <Annie> Sure, let's do this CG tribute to the Iranian winner. While we are still around.
Aug-17-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Biel Master Open (2019) now has correct (hopefully) standings. Yes... there is little interest apparently but perhaps winner photos would help? Like this one: https://www.bielchessfestival.ch/.i.... If only CG could have the permission to show them on its tournament pages. So we could smile at Kamsky's long hair.

  WinKing: Less than 2 hours to go till the Sinquefield games commence. <chessgames> please open the 'Live' games forum for the Round 1 Carlsen vs Giri game. Thanks.
Aug-17-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: <WinKing> it's been open since yesterday. :)

The live banner usually turns on one hour before game start. When people visit this site and see a live banner on the homepage, they tend to expect the game to be going on already, or at least starting soon - we don't want to disappoint them by turning it on much too early.

For those who want a quick way to get there earlier, this is what the <Live Game> (aka Live Broadcast Page) link in the default top menu is for - not to mention the game link on the tournament page.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Thanks <Annie K.>. Didn't know you had an auto-pilot system in play. ;)
Aug-17-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  WinKing: Although...the 'Live' banner hasn't kicked in yet with less than 30 min. to go.

  WinKing: There it is! Thanks <chessgames>.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Annie K.: And that's why it needs keeping an eye on... there are several ways the process can break down somewhere or other.

But please sound the alert only if there's less than one hour to the game and it's still not on, or if it's on but doesn't lead to a game. That will be helpful :)
