|Dec-26-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Hope you guys had a good and safe holidays.
When you get time, the page of W So vs Shirov, 2011 is sadly in need of another cleansing.
|Dec-27-11|| ||Blunderdome: It's unfortunate that I need to suggest this, but we could use a feature similar to the whistle for offensive entries into the pun voting booth. If you check the recent submissions you'll see the one I mean.|
|Dec-27-11|| ||FSR: The Opening of the Day should be the <Grand> Prix Attack, not the <Gran> [sic] Prix Attack.|
|Dec-27-11|| ||notyetagm: <CG.COM>
I just submitted 2 <PGNs> via the <PGN UPLOAD UTILITY>.
Any idea how long it will be before they appear in the cg.com database?

It goes on and on and on.

Yes it does.As long as you play the role of the victim.
|Dec-27-11|| ||dakgootje: Hey
Would it be possible to have a little button at Guess-the-Move 'resume last game'? Currently whenever my browser loads, I get 'ERROR: Bad game request'
So I go to 'Clear out all partially-finished games' and click on the game.
It works - but its a bit unnecessary.
|Dec-27-11|| ||Annie K.: <dakkie> makes a valid point, <cg> - it's a bad habit of his. ;)|
Accessing unfinished games via a link titled "Clear out all partially-finished games" has always seemed pretty counter-intuitive to me. And locating these stored games really should be easier. :)

This query should probably be directed to you: Biographer Bistro
|Dec-28-11|| ||chessmoron: <chessgames> Why the long delay of blitz and blindfold games for SportAccord World Mind Games? : http://www.chess.co.uk/twic/chessne...|
|Dec-28-11|| ||WannaBe: Probably due to the holiday seasons.|
|Dec-29-11|| ||matebay: <Why the long delay of blitz and blindfold games for SportAccord World Mind Games?>|
To hide the truth..for Lagrave the winner of the blitz format drubbed by Wesley in their individual ICC blitz encounter.
Wesley wins 8, drew 2 and allowing Lagrave the consolation of a solitary win.
|Dec-29-11|| ||chessgames.com: <1) it would be useful if next to "highest rating achieved" the year was mentioned.
2) for ex, when was Yermo rated 2699?>
We agree, and thanks for pointing out the idea.
|Dec-29-11|| ||chessgames.com: Sorry for the delay--We'll get these on the homepage (and kibitzable) very soon. |

It was good to see your positive response to this.
While you're at it, it might also be possible to remove some incorrect rating data from the database, by clearing the rating field of any player whose game dates and maximum rating don't match up. Some people, in submitting games, fill in the 'highest' rating rather than the one in use when the game was played.
Fixing them all would be a Herculean task, but this small step would move in the right direction.
Have a good new year, now. And a hep hogmanay.
|Dec-29-11|| ||Domdaniel: I understand, btw, that some guy -- a certain King Augeus? -- has stables full of ...|
Well, you know. And they're probably a more urgent problem than ratings.
|Dec-29-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Among the games I submitted from the 1953, 1954 and 1955 US Opens were sixteen played by <Allen Kaufman>, who does not yet have a player page in the database. These games are now listed under Larry Kaufman instead, who would have been 6-8 years old at the time. The PGN has also been altered to read <Larry Kaufman>.|
I have submitted the usual correction slip, but wanted to bring this up here as well since it may be some sort of systemic problem. I have noticed this happening before, but not on such a large scale. Also, I'm now working on the 1957 US Open and more <Allen Kaufman> games are included.
|Dec-29-11|| ||WannaBe: Thank God they are not Andy Kaufman...|
|Dec-30-11|| ||Peligroso Patzer: The following interesting blitz game may be worthy to be included in your database:|

|Dec-30-11|| ||chessgames.com: <Phony> Thanks I think we have it sorted out now in Allen Kaufman page. Are you sure however that this is different from Allen J Kaufmann, already on file?|
<Thank God they are not Andy Kaufman> LOL
<dakgootje: Would it be possible to have a little button at Guess-the-Move 'resume last game'?> That's a good idea. Perhaps more accurately it could be called "resume most recent unfinished game".
|Dec-30-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <chessgames.com> My mistake; I didn't notice Allen J Kaufmann. They are undoubtedly the same person, but <Kaufman> (one "N") is the correct spelling. Here is his USCF rating page:|
He was head of the American Chess Foundation for many years, and helped to originate and award the Samford Fellowship. Also, I played him once and managed to win. This didn't seem to affect ACFs attitude toward Michigan.
Thanks for looking into this. I wish all those Kauf(f)man(n)s could get their act together and agree on one spelling.
|Dec-31-11|| ||Benzol: <chessgames> Now that the New Year has ticked over do you think you could process the game uploads that have been awaiting in the wings. Some of them have been there for a long time.|
Did you see my earlier message about the 2012 Queenstown Classic too?
|Dec-31-11|| ||Penguincw: Hmm. I'm assuming the balloons are for the New Year. Happy New Years then!|
|Dec-31-11|| ||WinKing: Happy New Year to all <chessgames> members &
Happy New Year to the <chessgames> staff!|
|Dec-31-11|| ||Annie K.: <cg.com> Happy New Year! :)|
Any news on the player pages audio idea, guys? I'm running a YouTube channel for just that purpose now - http://www.youtube.com/user/AnnieK1... - but I'll be glad to send you all my audio files (either in m4a or mp3 format, as you prefer) any time you want to give them a try.
