  WinKing: We received no move today from GM Naiditsch in the World Team game. Just a heads-up so you are aware. Our last move was on Sep-20-14.

  kingscrusher: Hi Chessgames.com

When viewing a game collection e.g. Marshall's best games:

Game Collection: MARSHALL'S BEST GAMES OF CHESS

I think it would be nice to have an indication of either the number of pages of Kibitzing or the number of Kibitzes - say as of a certain date

This kind of information is a guide to interest of the games in question.

For example in Marshall's case, his famous game against Levitsky with the famous Queen sac has 10 pages of Kibitzing.

I think it would add value when people look at collections to get this indicator somehow of the level of Kibitzing gone on.

Cheers, K

  chessgames.com: We've considered making a different color word balloon icon for that purpose, perhaps red to indicate "on fire". But it shouldn't be limited to game collections—if it behaves that way in one place, it's got to work that way everywhere.

Good idea, though. Thanks for reminding.

  Tabanus: Hi <CG> I have a suggestion. I think it would be fair (at least for the nominators) with a deadline at Game Collection Voting. Say one week, or one month. Perhaps a "voting closes in x days from now", similar to the CG Challenge.

  kingscrusher: Thanks Chessgames.com

Even with just two pages of kibitzing - the following funny game would be highlighted a bit more :)

Outrageous pawn moves!

Marshall vs H Rogosin, 1940

Cheers, K

  Tabanus: <CG> I also think the voting should be anonymous (or anonymous for the one who wants to be). Reasons:

1) It's unpleasant for some voters to have their name published. 2) The voters can say YES or NO without fear of getting unpopular (or popular). 3) Anon. review is very common for scientific journals, and there must be a reason for it.

It should still be possible to state reasons for YES or NO. I believe anon. voting would encourage writing and attract biographers. Simply because of the chance to have the work better reviewed. Just my 2 cents.

  Richard Taylor: < Richard Taylor: CG.com you might be interested in following the New Zealand George Trundle Masters and Challengers which can be found via this link. http://www.newzealandchess.co.nz/

It will be interesting as in the Masters section the world's youngest IM one Anton Smirnov will be playing. Also his father. >

This starts tomorrow. GM Murray Chandler this year has made it so that is quite a big event also considering he has a new Chess Centre. So as a business man (Gambit Books) and a chess player (at one stage among the elite GMs). I think some of the games will be live also. In the International Stage not a big deal but a part of chess culture and history...

  chessgames.com: Tabanus: About time limits on voting, as it's possible to remove a nomination from the voting booth with sufficient nays, is it really necessary? Have we run into a problem where one lingers there for too long?

About anonymous voting: perhaps that is a good idea.

  Tabanus: <CG> The longest was more than a week, some months ago. I think that as it is now, people hesitate to vote at all if there is something they don't like. So in theory it could be hanging there forever. It certainly wrecks my nerves! Not so important probably, if it's only me, but to remove a nomination (after all the hard work) without even knowing the reason does not feel good.

Sorry I was a day ahead of myself which might translate into at least another day is say the US.

  Boomie: I'm not sure if this has been noticed but I just stumbled on it.

Susan Polgar has left the building. Here is the start of her last post:

<Susan Polgar: <john barleycorn> My name is Susan Polgar. After asking you nicely several times to address me by my proper name, and to behave properly, without success, I resign. You win.

As long as you continue to troll Wesley's page and insult people as a sport, I will not be here. I am done with people like you and a few others here trashing me, my family, and Wesley, constantly.>

Wesley So

I'm not sure what can be done about this but the site is losing valuable assets due to the actions of a few trolls.

Sep-26-14  Pulo y Gata: <Boomie> Perspective.

Susan bristles and blows her top when others question or contradict her words. For example, look for her claims about her and Paul Troung's legal battles with USCF and her reaction when some people called her to it. Also look up her reaction when people won't buy Paul Troung's claims about his being a national champ at age five (!!!), unbelievable escape adventure that makes Life of Pi a bland piece of literature, and financial wizardry.

Unable to convince everyone about their claims and 'exemplary' records, she made an escape attempt and lashed out on poor <johnbarleycorn>, who, everyone knows, must die. She left on her own volition.

This site's valuable assets include people like you, Boomie, and <johnbarleycorn>, who pay to keep the site running and freeloaders like me enjoying.

  chessgames.com: <Susan Polgar has left the building.> Yes, I'm well aware, I spoke to her about it. I reminded her that if she communicates on her own page she can delete inappropriate or rude comments and even prohibit certain members from posting there.

I think it's clear John Barleycorn was rude to her, but I don't think that solitary incident is the entire reason for her leaving.

Remember that Wesley So himself declared "I'm not gonna visit this site anymore" although he still drops by from time to time.

Indeed. There are some posters on this site who act like damn fools at times. Perhaps they really don't care if their posts are offensive.

  Domdaniel: <SwitchingQ> Um, I don't know. Losing Ed Trice was like a minor extinction event - exit Triceratopsy and related dinosaurs. But losing La Polgar seems rather more significant. I, for one, would prefer to have her around.
