|Feb-16-12|| ||WannaBe: Yes, too bad <JoeWms> is not here anymore. =(|
|Feb-16-12|| ||suenteus po 147: <technical draw> Probably the oldest *regular* kibitzer here is <Sneaky> followed by <Honza Cervenka>.|
|Feb-16-12|| ||technical draw: Right, <suenteus> I gave <Benzol> an extra year by mistake. <Sneaky> already has 10 years in and <Honza> will have 10 years in Sept.|

I'm glad You mentioned old Joe. I meant to ask You about him a number of times in last year or so. But I kind of didn't dare, so to speak...
|Feb-17-12|| ||positionalgenius: Ah yes wannnabe, I do remember <Joewms>...|
|Feb-17-12|| ||positionalgenius: Another kibitzer who used to be very active was <square dance>, a chap I also miss.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Benzol: If I remember correctly <Sneaky> <ughaibu> <Dr Who> and <Honza> are among the oldest kibitzers who should be treated with respect. Me, I'm just another sprog trying to win his spurs.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||technical draw: <chessgames> May I suggest a kibitzer's hall of fame? I think 10 years and 10,000 posts should qualify. Some members already qualify. It would be nice to recognize them for their dedication to chess and to chessgames.com.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Domdaniel: Thank you, people, for remembering <Joe Wms>, my inspiration, my mentor in the art of not quite talking about chess, and a man of intellectual sharpness and humour. A *real* Life Master, in other words.|
<Nemesistic> - <And thanks for not calling me "A member".. Although at least i have one, strapped right between my Goldsby's ;)>
Thanks for making me laugh out loud. Or should I say ... "LOL!".
|Feb-17-12|| ||Domdaniel: Wasn't there a Gore Vidal novel where he replaced 'naughty' words with the cleanest words possible ... the names of US supreme court judges?|
One of them was called Whizzer White, which led to nice clean sentences like "I revealed my manly Whizzer White and plunged it ..."
I've forgotten the other names, but it was a hoot. Famous chess names are easy to adapt -- ("Euwe!" he shrieked, "What a pair of Geller Mieses!") -- though it might break a rule or two.
|Feb-17-12|| ||cro777: <chessgames.com> At the Aeroflot Open 1012 Group B the 13-year-old Russian FM Vladislav Artemiev (2439) collected 5 points. He met four grandmasters scoring one win and three draws. By FIDE ratings Vladislav is the best under 14 player in the world.|
IMHO, he deserves a player page.
|Feb-17-12|| ||WannaBe: <cro777> If we can get the PGNs from group B, then players pages will be generated for all the participants.|

Does this mean the admins are your sockpuppet-account?
|Feb-17-12|| ||WannaBe: Oh, shoot, the secret is out, I forgot to change PC when I made that post.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||cro777: Thanks <Wannabe>. The pgn's from tournament B can be found here|

This would make the arguments over the "site awards" look like nothing.
I'm not opposed, in principle, but it shouldn't go by post count. There's too much inflation there already.* And there should be 'electors' of some sort, because, let's be honest, not everyone's vote should count as much as, say, that of <Phony Benoni>. Or of <td> for that matter.
*[We have posters actively bragging about driving up their post counts through "nothing posts" right now.]

<not everyone's vote should count as much as, say, that of <Phony Benoni>. Or of <td> for that matter.>
User: everyone 's vote should count, and so should User: everyone else 's vote

<WannaBe>'s busted again! Heh heh heh!!!
|Feb-17-12|| ||King Death: This is a question for more experienced users than me. Last week I uploaded about 7 games and will send some more. How long does it usually take for them to show up?|
|Feb-17-12|| ||Shams: <How long does it usually take for them to show up?> |
Somewhere between three days and four years, depending on how much they like you.
|Feb-17-12|| ||TheFocus: I had one game show up the same day I uploaded it.
Others took months.
|Feb-17-12|| ||King Death: <Shams> LOL!
|Feb-17-12|| ||technical draw: <Shams> My idea would be 10,000 posts PLUS ten years. The 10 years show dedication and the 10,000 posts show interaction. Right now only those members who joined on or before 2002 and with 10,000 or more posts would qualify.|
|Feb-17-12|| ||TheFocus: I'm halfway there post-wise, but seven years away!
We're throwing a party then.
|Feb-17-12|| ||Shams: <td> Two candidates:|
a) Ten years service, 4,000 really good posts
b) Ten years service, 15,000 posts, many of them not so good
I think we pick a), much higher SNR and it's what we want other users to emulate, no?
By the way I think my own definition will totally disqualify me. =)
