|Mar-21-15|| ||chessgames.com: <Phony> Thanks for pointing that out, for some reason all of the E59 games were defined with the FEN for E58. There are also 3 other ECO codes with no games, we'll have to take a look at them.|
|Mar-22-15|| ||zanzibar: Another example, similar to <Alexander Alexander> is provided by <R. Smith>:|
Advanced Search: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches...
( Kinda miss, see message:
<Sorry, we have no names that exactly match 'R SMITH' in our database.> )
EZ Search: search "r smith" (hit)
Actual player: R Smith (pid 34598)
|Mar-23-15|| ||zanzibar: Here's an example where <E-Z Search> fails, and <Advanced Search> must be used:|
<J Meyer> 15611
<J Meyer> 112832
The <E-Z Search> only finds 15611
search "j meyer"
|Mar-23-15|| ||Annie K.: <cg> curious about the disappearance of the photo from the player page of Vladas Jonovich Mikenas - this page was recently renamed from Vladas Ivanovich Mikenas. Could this have anything to do with why it has no photo now, or did you decide to take it down for some other reason?|
The Evans photo looks great, btw!
|Mar-23-15|| ||chessgames.com: Thanks for pointing that out, when we rename players like that we have to rename the graphic file as well. There's a program that searches for orphaned graphics but we don't run it very often.|
|Mar-23-15|| ||Annie K.: That explains things, thanks. :)|
|Mar-24-15|| ||zanzibar: The graphic doesn't use the pid?|
|Mar-24-15|| ||chessgames.com: No, it uses (stupidly) the name of the player. E.g. captainwilliamdaviesevans.jpg|
|Mar-24-15|| ||zanzibar: Ha - I do stuff like that too.|
|Mar-25-15|| ||Annie K.: <cg> One Aeroflot coming right up! :) |
|Mar-27-15|| ||Tabanus: <CG> The page Kasparov - Karpov World Championship Match (1990) has Hjartason, should be Hjartarson.|
|Mar-27-15|| ||Paint My Dragon: <Re:HJARTARSON> Should also be Johann, not Johan.|
|Mar-28-15|| ||zanzibar: Another Pitt Archive file I'd like to have:
Anybody have it?
|Mar-28-15|| ||Penguincw: Been kinda quiet here, so I'll break the silence with a random question:|
Has anyone ever noticed the little "slider" on the bottom right hand side of the kibitzing box? It's probably been there forever, but I just noticed it today, after nearly 9500 posts. :| I then experimented with it, and was wondering, can it stretch forever?
I also noticed it's in other places like game collections and preferences, and while it doesn't remember any modifications you made, it can adjust accordingly to the amount of text?
Does anyone actually use it?
|Mar-29-15|| ||TheFocus: <Penguincw> <Does anyone actually use it?>|
We will now.
|Mar-29-15|| ||chessgames.com: That thing that lets you resize your text boxes was a browser innovation that's a few years old now. It has nothing to do with Chessgames per se. I'm not sure where it started; I first saw it on Safari but now I've seen it on other browsers as well.|
I use it quite a lot for some forms, like player biographies, where the text content vastly exceeds the window that it's in.
|Mar-30-15|| ||Pyke: Forum for the US Championship, pretty please :-) http://uschesschamps.com/2015-us-wo... |
Looking forward to this one ...
|Mar-30-15|| ||Baron Harkonnen: <pyke> me too. finally some heavyweight tourney. ;p|
|Mar-31-15|| ||hoodrobin: <chessgames.com> the India-China Summit Match 2015 was interesting. You can download the games as a pgn file from TWIC.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||WannaBe: <CG.com> Something wrong with the list of Recent Chessforum Activity|
I only see 10 forums, usually it's a lot more.
|Mar-31-15|| ||WannaBe: Looks like anything March 29 and before are not being listed...|
|Mar-31-15|| ||SwitchingQuylthulg: <WannaBe> I don't think there's any technical problem with the Recent Chessforum Activity page, it's just that there aren't as many active forums these days. The list has always been limited to the last two days.|
|Mar-31-15|| ||WannaBe: <Switch> Thanks, it just looked so "lonely".|
|Apr-01-15|| ||chessgames.com: <Is there a way to render a collection introductory header that has received a note in it back to one without?> I would think it would suffice to just delete the introduction and press "update" (no need to use whitespace) — but if you say you've tried that without success, then there must be a bug in that regard. Thanks for pointing that out.|
|Apr-01-15|| ||gauer: Okay, thanks for looking in to that. One collection (with a (different) note in the header) had some notes that might not have been necessary to include during Game Collection Voting nomination. Not sure if the check-box still defaults to yes (even when choosing n from y/n to include intro on a collection with a non-empty header) if a header is empty, but some tournament is ready for nominating, with games in it.|
The nominated collection would have a year of 2001; not sure if a header editor box would be available at a later point, or turned off, or if it would try to any of the collection header contents. A cross-table copy created was moved to another offline file in personal notes for now.
