<Format>:

[player]-[player] [result] [# of MOVES]

==4 Different Scoring Methods==

Standard Moves Ranker (1st place-Over[3pts], 1st place-Under [7pts], Exact [10pts])

Bonus Ranker (3rd place-Over[1pts],2nd place-Over[2pts],3rd place-Under [5pts], 2nd place-Under [6pts]

Standard Moves/Bonus Ranker [Add all to together]

1st place Ranker [how many 1st place you have in Standard Moves Ranker]

For example:

<Note: Participants 3, 4, and 5 are predicated on nobody scoring an exact as Participant 2 did. If someone hits an exact, the closest score under and over will score the points for second place.>

Actual Game: [player]-[player] 0-1 45

Participant 1: [player]-[player] 1/2 45
Participant 2: [player]-[player] 0-1 45
Participant 3: [player]-[player] 0-1 44
Participant 4: [player]-[player] 0-1 43
Participant 5: [player]-[player] 0-1 46

Participant 1: No points even though 45 is correct. Results must be correct. If Result is wrong and moves # is correct...you get no points whatsoever

Participant 2: 10 pts rewarded for correct Result/moves #

Participant 3: 7 pts rewarded for closest under (1st-Under) to 45 moves

Participant 4: 6 pts rewarded for the 2nd closest under (2nd-Under) to 45 moves.

Participant 5: 3 pts rewarded closest OVER(1st-OVER) to 45 moves.

Again, the description of Participant 3, 4, and 5 are based on there being no exact prediction as made by Participant 2.

<IF> there is an exact or an under closest, the highest scoring over participant will be 2nd over. The second closest over will be 3rd over. The <ONLY> time there will be a first over is if there is no exact or under winner.

  OhioChessFan: I don't know about baseless. Just saying.......

You responding was fine. I wanted them to shut up about it too. It was totally pointless, as the final answer was going to be known soon enough. And as it turned out.......

  chancho: <OCF> Your taking exception to how <Sargon> responded to you and making your displeasure known to one and all, is not going to change his point of view.

It's clear he did not like the shenanigans of outright flaming post-Freeman (probably before even then) and he wants to do something about it.

As the new webmaster, that's his prerogative.

I hope that you don't end up leaving this site because you disagree with the changes.

Are you really that dim?

If you speculate A caused B.

In order to even begin to be correct,
B has to happen.

  Robed.Bishop: <chanco> While I agree that the new webmaster can act as he chooses - his prerogative - that does not mean that input from users will be ignored. It is too early to make that judgment.

Perhaps you and I would have reacted differently to the warning posted here and replied to <chessgames.com> with a more measured response, but <the admins> have an implicit obligation to set the tone of the site. To deny any obligation would demonstrate a lack of respect that the <Admins> stated is the intended goal of enforcing the posting guidelines.

<chanco>, please do not take this response as a rebuke to your post as that is not my intention. If users disagree with <Admin's> postings, we should be able to address our concerns, and I continue to agree with your ultimate statement.

It's possible. Or, in Jim's defense (what is this world coming to? I am giving him benefit of the doubt!) maybe he hasn't seen this post:

chessgames.com chessforum (kibitz #31037)

But I expect that he has, and is just trying to goad <OCF> to spell it out.

That way, Jim can maintain plausible deniability, yet, highlight it for the admins, just as he did with <BP>:

"I didn't want <BP> banned!", he said. Yet he continued to highlight <BP>'s most offensive posts!

<saffuna: I referenced it repeatedly>

  thegoodanarchist: So be warned, <OCF>, <dice>, <tpstar> and all other conservatives.

Jim will try to goad you into specifics, and most likely then use the "Blow the whistle" function, and pretend all along he didn't want you suspended.

I will not use the blow-the-whistle function. (And I never used it against <tga> either.)

However, earlier today <ocf> wrote the following:

<It was totally pointless, as the final answer was going to be known soon enough. And as it turned out.......>

I would like to know what that means before commenting.

Because if I comment on what I think it means, I will immediately be accused of inventing things.

So, what does "as it turned out" refer to?

  Keyser Soze: <saffuna: <ocf><It is beyond despicable that someone is trying to take advantage of the webmaster's death for his own selfish ends.> Who do you believe is doing that?

I believe the two people who used the webmaster's death to accuse another poster of causing that death were taking advantage.>

Of what? I think he meant people taking advantage to <gain power on the new administration.>.

Big pawn didn't acused anyone directly of killing anyone. Just made a case that <IF> stress was a issue , than some people could be blamed, which I agree. Stress caused by that individual is well known. I proved already and his legal threats is on record . Period.

Question for you: who was the two people who was so interested to buy the site <while mourning (cough cough!) For him ?

Where the same to tried buying Daniel's mother (wtfk ?) a premium membership? No hidden interest behind? I don't buy that .
