  Phony Benoni: Glad the ad is gone. I left the Internet Chess Club over a similar sort of incident, In fact, I might never have come here had it not happened.

Now, my projects - and indeed my life -- are so intertwined with <CG> that's it's likely a "death do you part" situation. But such marriages can still be annoying.

  Phony Benoni: I have something that very few, if any others here have: a personal acquaintance wuth <jnpope> that goes back to his pre-Pillsbury days. He is genuinely a person of high principles who acts on them.

The standard of historical work has improved immensely in the years I've ben here due to the number of careful, conscientious workers. As long as they continue to inspire and/or prooke us with their standards, I welcome their presence and regret their departure, whatever their motivation might be.

  jessicafischerqueen:

Duplicate player page and duplicate game case that I just caused by not checking the spelling carefully enough on a recent upload:

T Muller and

Th Mueller and are the same player.

<T Muller> is from a rusbase pgn that does not provide a source for the name, but <Th Mueller> is sourced to Gaige's Thulin Name Index: http://www.edochess.ca/players/p140...

So I think we should fold <T Muller> in to the <Th Mueller> page.

------------------

In addition, I created a duplicate game page with different player names:

I believe T Muller vs J Zabludowski, 1899 should be deleted, and Th Mueller vs J Zabludowski, 1899 should be preserved.

  Jean Defuse: ...

There are 34 games, from the major tournament of the '1st Baltic Chess Congress', in my database - i'll upload the missing ons next time ...

This game K Behting vs T Muller, 1899 was not a part of the congress, as <whiteshark> point it out: <Played at the Riga Chess Club Championship!>

  Tabanus: <Annie> WCh Women Playoff (2010) (4 rapid games) should be transferred to Women's World Championship Knockout Tournament (2010).

  Tabanus: And psst, there are now 140 games from three events which are ready for --> Rapid (137 games) & Armageddon (3 games).

The games are in my forum header, as long as there is space for them ;)

  Ziryab: I have a question regarding game score corrections?

How long does it take for these to be processed?

I submitted a correction to Polerio vs Lorenzo, 1575

Some of the moves are absurd. Peter J. Monté, <The Classical Era of Modern Chess> points out that the source of the absurdity is a copying error made by H.J.R. Murray, which was repeated in the Oxford Encyclopedia of Chess games (Monté, p. 458).

Correcting the game score yields a much more interesting game.

The date, also, should be later (c. 1580-1585), according to Monté.

  Annie K.: <MissS> yes, we'll use either the Editor Notes or a proper log page like the current edit history pages. But we're working on several urgent fronts right now, these plans are second tier urgency at the moment. :)

<Ohio> Well, if you can confirm the problem is that you're getting the mobile tournament page, that's a good start. If you like the desktop versions of pages, check the "Disable mobile features" line in your site preferences again, that's the right site setting - and then look in your <mobile browser> (not site) settings for something like "Desktop version", depending what your browser is. On Samsung Internet, you scroll down to the bottom of the tournament page and then scroll slightly up, then a line of icons will appear at the bottom. The icon on the right is the settings, here you can find and press the "Desktop version", and Bob's your uncle. ;)

<Tab: <<extra line above and under table> Pretty please?>>>

I know, I know. :) We'll get back to this as soon as I can distract Sargon from his current projects for a bit.

<Ziryab> when you mention something here, it's likely to get fast-tracked. ;)

Caught up with some of the issues mentioned, will do more tomorrow. <Tab> not having to delete correction slips after every correction saves me a lot of time too! :) Any chance you could state the needed gametype corrections in terms of decimal rounds? That would make things even easier.

  Tabanus: <Annie> Of course. I've corrected dates + round & subround numbers for all three. 2006, 2008 and 2010 practically (for us) had the same rules:

For rounds 1-5 (x) it is x.1-2 = Classical, x.3-6 = Rapid, and x.7 = Armageddon.

For round 6 (the final) it is 6.1-4 = Classical, 6.5-10 = Rapid, 6.11 = Armageddon.

  Tabanus: <Jess> While playing chess in your area, on the resting day I saw a mountain walker or <qivitoq>, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJe...

Or it was only Ridgewalker Pete, see https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/brit...

<Tab> Bigfoot (qivitoq) IS REAL

and Ridgewalker Pete (qivitoq) IS REAL as well??

Sounds like a vexing identification project... much like the 4 (four) different <qivitoqs>, all of whom <Haave> the same name, in this spectacular sighting: Game Collection: To Haave and Haave Not

Should be Stavanger though.

  Tabanus: <Annie> Thanks for the 144 game type corrections!

So bigfoot, sasquatch (or just quatch), yeti, qivitoq, skunk ape, Fouke monster, goatman, AND Ridgewalker Pete.

  Annie K.: <Tab> no problem. :) If you give me subround information like that, you won't need to link all the games either.
Jul-02-20
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <Annie> Great. I may link them anyway, so I can count them afterwards to get the overview. Plus for checking if we did it right ;)

I'll go on with the WWC's, and then the World Cups again because of 5+10 = Rapid.

Just remember to renew the domain name.

Ever get the feeling this site isn't <Sargon>'s main preoccupation?

  Retireborn: I want to complain - I was shut out of the site very suddenly today. I can still get in by switching to Opera and using its vpn, but is there any way I can be unblocked? ISTR this happened to Sally Simpson the other week is it BT addresses that are being blocked?

<A Pint in a Flagon> I Haave fixed it!

Thank you for Stavanger. You may also be pleased to know that I have updated Game Collection: To Haave and Haave Not to include the latest scores from the notorious <Stavanger Football and Qivitoq Hunting Club>.

  Retireborn: OK I am unblocked now, for this relief much thanks.

Football and Qivitoq hunting sounds like an unusual mix of pastimes, even for the good people of <Staavaanger>.

<Retireborn>

I am glad to hear of your recent triumph with laxatives, but would question whether a bistro is the right place :)
