**CURRENT DRAFT UNDER INSPECTION FOR PROMOTION: Game Collection: WCC: Botvinnik-Bronstein 1951

**DUE DATE- THE DAY I WILL SUBMIT THIS DRAFT TO <Daniel>: Submission Day <<<SUNDAY APRIL 6>>>

########################

<Greetings colleagues!>

Daniel Freeman has given us his blessing to edit the History of the World Chess Championship.

Our task is twofold: to fact check each introduction and source the information to reliable books, journals, or newspapers. At present, many of the intros are either imprecisely sourced, or sourced to dubious websites.

Second, we should edit the intros so that any new material we discover should be added to the existing text, which is often skimpy and usually contains a good number of factual errors.

<Here is our <<<watchword>>>: all facts in the intros must be sourced to reliable primary material>

###############################

STANDARDIZATION TEMPLATE

<1. How did the Match come about?

2. What were the conditions for the Match? The stakes, the number of games, the rules, and this could also include information about the backers, the venue, the referees, and so on.

3. What happened at the Match?>

<SITE FIELD> Country Code guidelines, courtesy of User: Paint My Dragon:

The normally accepted convention is, I believe, to refer to the URS (The Soviet Union) from 22 Dec 1922 until 26 Dec 1991, when the Union collapsed, and thereafter, to use RUS (Russia), or one of the other Baltic states that formerly comprised the Union. Unfortunately, the attribution of three-letter country codes to the Balkan states over a range of dates spanning the nineties and noughties, is a much more complicated process, and more than I could begin to explain on these pages, so pray hard that you don't have to report on any matches from what used to constitute Yugoslavia!

  morfishine: Dear <jessicafischerqueen> I think the last time I posted here, was when I sent over a nice Vivaldi concerto. And thats about the last time I embraced some of my favorite classical music.

Shame on me...

Nonetheless, good job in whatever part you played in working to clean up the garbage that was littering the game pages or anywhere on this site. Well done!

Best, Morf

Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Thanks <Morf>.

I remember that, I indeed replied and sent a selection over to your forum in return. At the moment I'm learning about <Beethoven's> string quartets thanks to <lamont>. I have all of them now, I've listened to the first six.

Just to keep the record straight, here's what I wanted and here's what I did:

1. I wanted <AJ v The World> off of historical games that weren't <AJ's> games. In my view, the war on <AJ's> game pages was annoying but not critical. Pollution of historical masterpiece pages, however, I regarded to be critical.

2. I suggested that the admins hire someone to monitor the "recent games" section of the front page and daily delete any <AJ v The World> flaming from any historical games page. I never once suggested anyone be suspended or banned.

3. I spammed the admin forum with these two points for three days, and I sent one email to <Daniel Freeman> on the third day- in that email I briefly repeated what I just said in this post.

Initially I was glad the <admins> took any action, and said so in an email to <Daniel Freeman>. However, I have my doubts about their solution in the long term.

I think that a daily sweep, done maybe three times a day, of historical games pages, would be preferable- it would be a better way to achieve my one goal. Any flaming, not just <AJ v The World>, could then be deleted from these masterpieces in a way that did not rely on the laborious, and frankly ineffective, "whistle blowing" "function". That doesn't actually "function" at all in these cases.

However, I'd also like to add one more point- I'm in full agreement with <tpstar> and others that <AJ> should be banned, permanently, from this website.

<<jessicafischerqueen: <BOMBA> who is Sam and Max?> They are Freelance Police. Max is a psychotic rabbity creature and Sam is his canine enabler. http://www.telltalegames.com/samand...

Their exploits are chronicled in a series of adventurey games. The writing is hilarious and creative. Each game takes about 4 hours.

There is a free sample game which gives a taste of the series at http://www.telltalegames.com/downlo.... Nobody can get through this game without frequently collapsing in laughter.

Plus each game has a free demo of the opening scene to give a taste of the mayhem. For example, http://www.telltalegames.com/samand... >

Here's my response to the first time you asked about the Freelance Police: jessicafischerqueen chessforum

The link to the free game is "Abe Lincoln Must Die". This is the 4th game of the 16 made. There are some refs to the first 3 games but prior knowledge isn't needed to enjoy. You will laugh yourself silly. Just getting Honest Abe to say "I did not have sex with that woman" in context is worth the price of admission.

Anyhoo the whole idea is for you to have fun at CG and get back to your funny side here.

  morfishine: Good Evening <jessicafischerqueen>! Your position is exactly as mine: protect the game pages

Regarding the banning of posters, I am of the opinion that all "trollers", "kbitzer followers", "stalkers", "organized harassers" or whatever one decides to label them, should be permanently banned as well

Mar-02-12
Premium Chessgames Member
  jessicafischerqueen: Thanks for getting back to me with your own views <Morf>.

I respect your opinion. However, with regard to my own statement about <AJ>, you've helped me see that permanently banning him might do more harm than good in this case because as you imply, logic might dictate also banning those who follow him around.

I think a less drastic, and more effective method would be to monitor the new kibbutzing on the games pages three times a day and just manually delete any flame posts.

This is how the admins totally solved the problem of the <Wesley So> page- nobody got banned there and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that player page any more.

However, the admins went a different way with the <AJ v World> case, with the 1 week suspensions of targeted individuals. I'm skeptical of the long term effectiveness of such actions to keep outrageous personal flaming off of the historical games pages.

At any rate, we'll see what happens.

Best to you <Morf>.

  Travis Bickle: Hey Jess I remember hearing Carlos Santana talking about playing at Woodstock, 'Soul Sacrifice' the clip you sent to chancho. Well anyway Carlos said he never took psychedelics before and right before they went on stage to play he dropped either peyote or lsd I can't recall, but he said he was tripping and the arm of his guitar felt like it was miles long! LOL!! He said after that performance he never wanted anymore of it.

  waustad: Something you may want to consider for a vid is some music from this overture:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8yF1...

I'm a singer, not a musician ;-), so I don't know all of the jargon and my theory is weak. This piece contains a melody that is really memorable. He starts with something like when Ochs is surprised by his "kids" in Rosenkavalier (I told you I was a singer) and eventually lays out a wonderful tune. There are variations and some other very evocative music in it too.
