|Jul-21-15|| ||chessgames.com: I saw the screen shot; it didn't look unusual to me, other than one person using nested brackets.|
|Jul-21-15|| ||MarkFinan: Then I've absolutely no idea why I'm seeing the above posts in Orangey red text. I appreciate you taking the time and looking and answering me though. |
Maybe it's because I was staring at a small screen for 30 mins solid earlier, un subbing all the newsletters and website the an EX chessgames dot com member subscribed me to. I'll have a day without a phone and see if my eyes get any better, but this has never happened to me before.
|Jul-21-15|| ||MarkFinan: Basically. I'm seeing <this kind of text in elbow brackets> as the same colour as the text I'm typing now. Anyway, like I said. Thank you for looking into it for me, I appreciate it.|
|Jul-21-15|| ||METOPEA: Any new match The World X 1 to come soon?|
|Jul-21-15|| ||OhioChessFan: Regarding voting for game collections, the fifth Aye voter is currently anonymous, since the voting record disappears upon a successful nomination. That strikes me as a bit unfair. Why not keep a record of the voting along with the nominated collection, maybe at the bottom of the page in the Administrative Tournament Editor?|
|Jul-21-15|| ||Annie K.: <Mark> aha, ok. :) Well, if you find that reading from your mobile much is hard on your eyes, I recommend you go into the settings - lower the brightness some, and raise the contrast to compensate.|
|Jul-21-15|| ||ajile: Java now works again with the Deluxe Viewer 2!! I have reinstated my Premium Membership.|
|Jul-21-15|| ||MarkFinan: <<scout118: <cg.com> Please note the post below addressed to a user in violation of rule no.3
<MarkFinan> I'd appreciate if you refrain from posting personal attacks in my own private forum in violation of rule no. 3.|
You post was duly deleted.
We may have had some disagreements but do yourself a favor and don't take things too personally, restrain your emotions and act like an adult.>>
This post was brought to my attention by another kibitzer who I actually like. A rarity lately. Anyway.. A) It wasn't a personal attack, you just don't want me posting in your forum. So I think it's you who needs to act like an adult. B) I've posted things in Tpstar's forum and he deleted it too, I said nothing that could be perceived as a personal attack, although he does deem the word "unkind" as a personal attack, so I probably did offend him. And as I'm typing this I've just received 2 more emails (2 and a half years of obsession and infatuation with me that began on this site) from user kkderek aka Baron Harkonnen.
These are what I call personal attacks, not 4 words in your forum that wouldn't have upset a small child. I'm trying to behave on this site, I suggest we just have a game of chess if you have any problems with me. After all.. This is a chess site, and apart from the Roggers I think all disputes should be settled by playing a game.
|Jul-21-15|| ||MarkFinan: Btw.. Another appointment at the opticians is needed, everything looks okay today. Sorry for the inconvenience.|
Computers give me migraines, and tablets and phones are starting to make me colour blind!
|Jul-22-15|| ||Abdel Irada: <cg.com>: You see <this color> as gold? Interesting. To me it looks brown.|
|Jul-22-15|| ||chessgames.com: Do I see it as gold? Not really. I'm not even sure if "gold" is a properly defined color. It just sounds classier than "brown."|
|Jul-22-15|| ||chessgames.com: In other news:
<SECURE SSL CERTIFICATE> It has come to our attention that the secure certificate for Chessgames expired two days ago! This gives ominous warnings when you try to renew or register a premium account.

<CHESSGAMES TEAM GAME IV> We're putting it together now. The next game will be a 'normal' correspondence game, which is to say, computers are fully allowed. It will only be available to premium members.
|Jul-22-15|| ||Abdel Irada: <chessgames.com: Do I see it as gold? Not really. I'm not even sure if "gold" is a properly defined color.>|
To the extent that it is, it refers to any of various yellowish shades, but I agree that in the absence of the actual metallic color, it is pretty inexact.
<It just sounds classier than "brown.">
Just don't say that to G.K. Chesterton. :-D
|Jul-24-15|| ||Domdaniel: < I'm not even sure if "gold" is a properly defined color. It just sounds classier than "brown.">|
Indeed it does. No need to gold-nose us, or to extend the gold-coated tongue. As Goldfinger might say.
|Jul-24-15|| ||FSR: Klaus Junge lacks a picture. Here you go: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/....|
|Jul-25-15|| ||Abdel Irada: I'm still not sure I'd want to read _The Mysteries of Father Gold_.|
|Jul-25-15|| ||whiteshark: <ceegee> I know this is through unofficial channels but... here's the related game of that Junge picture:|

btw, is there a reason why Klaus Junge page has no customized features like <MOST PLAYED OPENINGS>, <NOTABLE GAMES>, <NOTABLE TOURNAMENTS> or <GAME COLLECTIONS>. Just wondering why 105 Junge games don't have these features, while 101 games of Paul Felix Schmidt do have them.
|Jul-25-15|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks for the photo and game.
<wondering why 105 Junge games don't have these features, while 101 games of Paul Felix Schmidt do have them>
I'm wondering that myself. I just gave Junge the <Chessgames Star of Megaimportance> which will surely fix the issue.
|Jul-26-15|| ||Annie K.: <cg> check for mail plz? :)|
|Jul-26-15|| ||Check It Out: The top female player definitely needs a photo on her bio!|
|Jul-27-15|| ||kellmano: British Chess Championships 2015 under way today. Ok it's hardly prestigious without Short and Adams and Sadler, but still worth a page I reckon.|
|Jul-27-15|| ||Penguincw: Don't forget about the Politiken Cup!

|Jul-28-15|| ||chessgames.com: <Miss S> That one's still waiting in your newest batch, although with less precise names ("L B Meyer / J W Brunnemer"). I'll be sure to use the full names when it gets processed.|
|Jul-28-15|| ||MissScarlett: Yes, it seemed familiar. Couldn't believe Capa could play so lamely twice. But don't let me delay you.|
