   Jul-28-15 Biographer Bistro (replies) We revised the bio Marcel Duchamp to say <In 1923 he concentrated on playing and his strength became master class.> whereas before it said <near master class>. I regarded it as uncontroversial that Duchamp qualifies as a "master" by any standard you wish to apply,

Premium Chessgames Member I saw the screen shot; it didn't look unusual to me, other than one person using nested brackets.

  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.

Premium Chessgames Member
  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.

  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?

  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.

  MarkFinan: <<scout118: <> 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.

  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!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Abdel Irada: <>: You see <this color> as gold? Interesting. To me it looks brown.

Premium Chessgames Member 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."
Premium Chessgames Member 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. We are very sorry, and have corrected the problem. If you still receive the error, try restarting your browser.

(Please understand that at no time was our secure sever ever unsecured; SSL expiration dates have little to do with security and everything to do with how domain companies make their money.)

<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.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Abdel Irada: < 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

Premium Chessgames Member
  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.

  FSR: Klaus Junge lacks a picture. Here you go:

  whiteshark: <ceegee> I know this is through unofficial channels but... here's the related game of that Junge picture:

[Event "GER-ch 08th"]
[Site "Bad Oeynhausen"]
[Date "1941.??.??"]
[Round "15"]
[White "Junge, Klaus"]
[Black "Kieninger, Georg"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[ECO "A54"]
[EventDate "1941.08.03"]

1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 d6 3. Nf3 Nbd7 4. g3 c6 5. Bg2 e5 6. Nc3 e4 7. Ng1 d5 8. cxd5 cxd5 9. Qa4 Be7 10. Nh3 O-O 11. Nf4 Nb6 12. Qb3 Bf5 13. O-O Qd7 14. f3 exf3 15. exf3 h6 16. Rd1 Rfd8 17. Be3 Nc4 18.

Ke2 Rd7 34. f5 gxf5 35. Bg3 b6 36. Rc1 Ng6 37. Ng2 1/2-1/2

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.

tia :)

Premium Chessgames Member 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.

  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.

  MissScarlett: Yes, it seemed familiar. Couldn't believe Capa could play so lamely twice. But don't let me delay you.
