chessgames.com: I suppose that should read "Open" although that's just speculation. These days it would always be an open, but 1976 had different attitudes.

chessgames.com: About the Dortmund exotics: EPIC GAME was settled as "YES" because of V Kovalev vs Kramnik, 2018 . UNDERPROMOTION was settled as "NO". The only promotion whatsoever was A Giri vs J K Duda, 2018 and it was of the normal queen-variety. Dortmund turned out to be a OOO-fest, ...

chessgames.com: We stuck the computer on this one for 6 hours last night, knowing well there would be a difference of opinion: analysis of move 23.? Ironically, SF would award a question-mark (or at least a “better is...”) to 23.Ng5, ranking it as only the third best option in a winning ...

  offramp: <Big Pawn: Looking at the list of members who have kibitzed the most, I see that <Saffuna>, formerly <Jim Bartle> has kibitze over 77,000 times!!>

And a few of those posts have been about chess, so I guess he/she knows how to play the game.

I'm not complaining about anything. On the contrary. I think a special place for the kibitzer with the most kibitzes should be created on the homepage.

Or at least some kind of annual award should be announced with pomp and circumstance.

77,000 posts!!!

That's an amazing post count!!!

  saffuna: You certainly have complained many times that I and the other liberals don't respond to you. Shall we check how many times you have written "crickets" or "scalded dog"?

You want to have it both ways.

  Big Pawn: <saffuna: You certainly have complained many times that I and the other liberals don't respond to you.>

Not because of your post count! I make note of your failure to respond when I present evidence during a debate and you suddenly go quiet.

But seriously, <Jim>, all politics aside, 77,000 posts (!!!) ought to be noticed. That dwarfs everyone else.

77,000!!!

See? You want to have it both ways. Your typical style.

  Annie K.: Kevin has been in charge of selecting the PotDs for Daniel. He sent his selections to Daniel, who would make the final decisions and upload them. He has a CG account, but is not a regular member.

As for the Players of the Day, seriously, most of the time they are selected based on their birthdays. Exceptions are special occasions such as Valentine's Day and the holidays.

The Openings and Quotes are, I think, on fully automated cycles, but Sargon should check anyway, just to be sure.

  jith1207: <Nok>: speak for yourself, when you say puzzles are the only biggest use of daily features. Opening explorer and GOTD are very useful and helpful here, though weeks without quote of the day might not be too bad. You see more comments on puzzles games, because... Eh... People comment on their results and variations to the puzzle? It's not hard to see why that gets more noticeable, but admins would know which features are most used in daily basis. I agree getting up the tournament page for current events is a priority, but the daily features on home page may help a lot of beginners and players as they prefer, and them being broken would give the site a bad look instantly.

  Annie K.: Yeah, nothing says "site in big trouble" like a broken homepage. Even if absolutely nobody used any of the daily features, this point alone would still make ensuring they don't run out the #1 priority.

<morfishine> this may work: Gift Membership Page

Aug-21-18  JimNorCal: Annie (or anyone), does anyone follow stats for CG access. Are people beginning to slip away?

I notice that Kibitz comments seem to take longer before they slide down and page out .... which could be because fewer comments which in turn could indicate fewer visits

I have sources saying 1998-07-01, but is that 100% accurate?

  zanzibar: Does anybody know if Alberto Artidiello ever had an account, or if he ever commented on <CG>?

What year did he sell off his interest?

This page is also chockful of interesting info details.

Aug-21-18  JimNorCal: All the more interesting Alexa stats require a paid subscription LOL.

Looks like CG has dipped a bit lately compared to other sites of similar rank. But that doesn't tell you if we dipped or they gained. And the display does not display any comparisons of CG with itself.
