Altibox starts next week. Looks like Wesley is doing a simul on Saturday, and Sunday will be rapid (to determine seeding and schedule?)

Can we have a page open?

May-22-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  chessgames.com: Yes, page is forthcoming.

I do hope somebody preserves the scores for the So simul—those are always interesting but the games often get lost, as the participants rarely keep good scoresheets.

  offramp: I have never noticed this at any other page...
I was at http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... and every time I refreshed the page, in whatever way, the order of the games changed. Odd!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <offramp> The games sort by year, month and day, but most of the games there have year only. So that within each year, they sort at random. Same if there are several games on the same day, unless the sort order is fixed by an editor (TI events only).

  morfishine: <offramp> I noticed that too when I used the 'back button' at a players page perusing their games. The order of the games changed making me think some games were duplicated. It took me awhile to figure it out

I never did figure it out! Thank you <Tabanus> for the info.

And thanks, Morf, for the kind words!

  Tabanus: <unless the sort order is fixed by an editor> Editors can't fix the sorting by date, sorry. They can fix the sorting by number of points in a standings table.

<CG> Is there a strike among the employees?

May-24-18  N0B0DY: <N0B0DY> ask to check the <Chessgames Challenge TEAM GAME> for move adjustment before today's voting will close.
May-24-18  quickbookssupport: The game of chess is like a punch in in the mind. A player needs to be quick as well as patience for the game and also the player needs to be in a fresh mood and very calm. If any one want to have the skills of the game can connect Quickbooks support (https://quickbooksupports.co/)

  Sokrates: A question for CG:

Is it possible by means of this site to send a private message to a forum member?

I visit another site/forum, where this feature is enabled and very often used btw.

Thanks in advance.

  morfishine: Dear <Tabanus> You are such a treasure here at <CG>, yet your avatar is a dirty old, hungry & aggressive-looking fly

Of course, you may do as you please, but have you at least considered some other avatar?

He explained that once awhile back <morf>. I think <Tabs> is an Entomologist & that's why he chose it. Better let him tell you for sure though. I kind of like the Fly.

Have you ever looked up "Tabanus"? It's perfect (well close enough). I always love members whose avatars match their usernames. ;)

  Tabanus: Thanks guys. I'm working with zoological museum collections (clegs/ horseflies at the time I registered here). Right now it's snails and mussels. It's a routine job for me now, and part of it is to identify old zoologists and collectors. My effort here in CG is a kind of prolongation of this routine, so my style can be rather hard or mechanical/robotic. It will probably be like this until I retire from work in 3-4 years.

<Penguincw> Thanks for your posts at the beginning of events! I have used them many times as a starter.

  Tabanus: If only I could write in Norwegian. Even if my English has improved a little over the years. Btw, I'll also say this now:

CG's technical miracle works fine in every way, except one: the archiving of events. The events are left behind in a sad state, because CG has only 3,5 (?) employees to take care of game submissions, correction slips, etc. etc. Someone in CG should be able to do this with joy - please hire a dedicated archivist! If you can afford. It may even pay off.

  morfishine: Hello <Winking> I was trying to be funny for the most part regarding <Tabanus> and his avatar. I was aware he is a noted Biologist (per his bio)
May-26-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Biologist yes, but noted? Mostly here I'm afraid :)

<CG> Does the voting work? There's a collection with 6 YES (and two with 5) but it's still not in TI.

  Chessical: <Chessgames.com> The collection submission process is broken.

  chessgames.com: < There's a collection with 6 YES (and two with 5) but it's still not in TI.> This is very confusing; I'll look into it and try to figure out what the issue is.

  chessgames.com: OK, that was some anomaly that had to do with the fact that there was already kibitzing on the page of one the tournaments that was being voted-in.

Once I deleted the kibitzes it pushed them all through:

<Congratulations, a new tournament has been created! Review here: Dortmund Sparkassen (2000)

Congratulations, a new tournament has been created! Review here: Linares (2001)

Congratulations, a new tournament has been created! Review here: Linares (2002)>

Sorry about that, I'll just have to remember this in case the situation crops up again.
