Kibitzer's Corner

  technical draw: Yes, Sir, <Colonel> no more debate. But I will vote for myself as handsomest kibitzer.
Jan-13-12  Colonel Mortimer: Well there's no category for best tanned kibitzer - the self vote could be tempting there.
Jan-13-12  frogbert: sorry for not knowing, td, but who's your avatar? yourself, your kid, another relative or just a cute picture you run across?
Jan-13-12  Blunderdome: It is possible to change my vote? I'd like to vote for <cro777> for most informed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Blunderdome> (-1), Cro777 +1, vote changed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <frogbert> one vote, counts a lot, look at Bush vs. Gore, especially when the winner gets to put their finger on 'the button'.

Argument dismissed.

<Colonel Mortimer> Yes, we are much more light-hearted here.

Argument flawed.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Hour left, One Hour left in today's voting!
Jan-13-12  Colonel Mortimer: Seeing as this is your warren, I won't hold you to the more rigorous standards of the Rogoff page.

Argument dismissed.

Jan-13-12  frogbert: <Argument dismissed>

in case you missed it, my point was the relative worth of one vote. anyway.

let me try one more, wannabe: in the political elections it's expected and considered good form that every candidate votes for himself/herself or his/her party.

in our context it makes very little sense and nearly nobody does it. except the funny guy, of course.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Colonel Mortimer> Perhaps the good sire would like to submit himself as Caissar host for next year.

Show me some rigorous stands? We would be highly honoured for such opportunity.

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Quick update, with about 50 minutes left...

<Best Informed>

9.3333 <tpstar>, 8.8333 <cro777>. There was a vote change from <> => <cro777>.

Jan-13-12  frogbert: <we are much more light-hearted here.>

most of the time, maybe.

Jan-13-12  frogbert: for the record: td won "funniest kibitzer" by a huge margin, relatively speaking, so it should be assumed that any nitpicking about "self-voting" is mostly for fun and regardless entirely academical. :o)
Premium Chessgames Member
  tpstar: <Best Informed> Thank you very much.

I would like to share the award with <cro777>

The whole purpose of the site awards is to be nominated.
