  Tabanus: <jess> On hard pressed admins. I just sent a big Swiss pgn to <Annie> and forgot <again> to remove the games that are already in CG.

  MissScarlett: <Annie K.: <Jess> fixed, and pgns processed. One rejection:>

If the system flags identical scores, how do duplicates like this get through?

J K Duda vs Ivanchuk, 2018 and J K Duda vs Ivanchuk, 2018

<Tab> Yes in light of the enormous amount of work <Annie> does, we should be extra careful to prepare our submissions. I'm sure I have been a worse offender than you Kompis.

On a sunnier note, I once knew a <big Swiss>. A fine fellow he was, too.

  Tabanus: Hang on <Annie> kompis, I will try to remove most of the dupls.

  Annie K.: Thanks, <Jess>. :)

<Tab> I owe you an email in any case, will try to get to it soon. ;)

<Chessdreamer> thanks for the vigilance! About gametypes: if a game shows up without the game type set, there is no need to submit a correction slip immediately; give it 24 hours, by then the issue may fix itself on its own. :) Alternatively, submit different game types separately, and wait until they are processed before submitting games with another game type; then I can process the whole submission with the appropriate gametype set from the start.

<MissS> Looking at the date of the event, this was from the period <Sargon> was still handling the mass uploads and just starting to learn the options - he must have used the script that allows games through, even if they have duplicates. That wouldn't happen now.

  MissScarlett: <Tab>, can you find <DOB>s for Samuel Walter Billings and Frank H Chubb?
Nov-17-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <Miss Kompis> I've tried Chubb already. Definately 1877, March or (less likely) February. I'll try Billings later.

<Annie> I uploaded again, hopefully with few duplicates now.

<Steamed Colleagues>

I realize this issue has been visited more than once already, but this looks awful. I just wrote this bio here Rozenkrantz, and I was forced to say the player continues to thrive at age 143.

Is it really true that there is no solution to this problem?

It would help if we were allowed to put partial dates in the "death box."

I know this player died in 1942, but when I put 1942.??.?? in the death box it tells me ERROR and also wipes out the date in the birth box.

Can code be written to allow us to put partial dates in the birth/death edit boxes?

  MissScarlett: Put in zeroes, not ?s. Thus: <1942.00.00>

  jnpope: Does anyone know Mansurov's source for the following game? Albin vs Pillsbury, 1902

I'd like to track down the original source as that publication may contain additional MC 1902 games (it's worth a shot). Between Tony Gillam and myself I believe we searched nearly every American, British, Irish, German and French source we could identify as having a chess column in 1902-1903. So I suspect Mansurov found it in a Russian periodical. I know the game wasn't published in Novoe Vremia, so perhaps another Moscow or St. Petersburg newspaper or perhaps something more obscure... anyone have any thoughts?

<MissScarlett> Brilliant, thank you!

I know how to do the "year only dates" thanks to you, and also I transported the bio over to the proper Karl Wilhelm Rosenkrantz also thanks to you.

I cut the part about him being Russian as a secondary citizenship, although Rusbase does in fact list him as a "Russian" in their pgn here:

[Event "Tournament (Baltic)"]
[Site "Riga (Latvia)"]
[Date "1899.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Rozenkrantz Karl (RUS)"]
[Black "Betinsh R.(LAT)"]
[Result "0-1"]
[ECO "C55"]
[WhiteElo "0"]
[BlackElo "0"]
[Annotator ""]
[Source ""]
[Remark ""]

  Tabanus: <Annie> Why not move Chigorin Memorial (2016) into TI. Example game: E Alekseev vs A Vunder, 2016

I promise to make a Vunderful intro.

  Stonehenge: Surely F F Finch = Francis Frederick Finch and Jefim Bogoljubov = Efim Bogoljubov.

And there are more duplicate player files (sigh).

  jnpope: Does anyone know of an online source for the Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung, 28 December 1902?

I'm looking for a confirming report on Pillsbury's exhibition given on 22 December 1902.

Nov-20-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <jnpope> There is a report in a Hamburg newspaper, 15 opponents on 22 December.

Try search for Pillsbury at http://www.theeuropeanlibrary.org/t..., then narrow it down to decade, year, and month.

  Tabanus: https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en/... (Neue Hamburger Zeitung 27 Dec 1902) page 10, blindfold vs 15 opponents on 6 December.

https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en/... (Hamburger Nachrichten 31 Dec 1902) page 15, blindfold vs 15 opponents on 22 December.

https://www.europeana.eu/portal/en/... (Neue Hamburger Zeitung 3 Jan 1903) page 18, blindfold vs 16 opponents on 22 December.

  jnpope: <Tabanus>: Thanks! The Neue Hamburger Zeitung, 3 Jan 1903, report gives the piece of information that I was hoping to find in the Berliner Illustrierte Zeitung.

  Paint My Dragon: <jnpope: ... I'd like to track down the original source as that publication may contain additional MC 1902 games ...>

Can you clarify please? Were you hoping for more Pillsbury games from MC 1902, or more games in general?

Nov-20-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  jnpope: I'd like to find as many of the 17 missing or partial games from MC1902 and as Mansurov had found the complete gamescore to Albin-Pillsbury I'm hoping his source may contain some or all of the missing games.
Nov-20-19
Premium Chessgames Member
  Paint My Dragon: Thanks. The reason I asked was simply that Fiala had published all of the Pillsbury games back in about 2002, including Albin-Pillsbury. But no, I don't have any knowledge of Mansurov.
