|Mar-02-19|| ||Annie K.: <Tab> thanks, I'll ask Sargon to check for them.|
<Stonehenge> your game submissions uploaded at gids 1945432-1945615. :)
|Mar-03-19|| ||Stonehenge: Thank you very much :)
|Mar-03-19|| ||Tabanus: <Annie> Corus (2003) is groups A and B joined together.|
In order to promote Game Collection: Corus Group A 2003 and Game Collection: Corus Group B 2003 it needs to be un-TIed, by you or Sargon.
|Mar-03-19|| ||MissScarlett: <Tab>, Howard Cecil James is reported as being 47 years old when he died, putting his birth around 1891. Do the business.|
|Mar-03-19|| ||zanzibar: <Missy> just on your word alone then?|
|Mar-03-19|| ||Tabanus: He was born late in 1891, but I could not find the exact date.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||Tabanus: I pasted my game collection intros into Corus Group A (2003) and Corus Group B (2003).|
So there was no voting process. I suppose now is the time for proof-reading.
|Mar-06-19|| ||MissScarlett: Have submitted the ten missing Blackburne - Gunsberg 1881 match games. Attend to them promptly.|
|Mar-09-19|| ||Annie K.: <MissS> gids 1946557-1946566. Keep up the good work. :) |
<Tab> I'm not convinced I agree about merging the Rapid and Blitz sections of the Champions Showdown. The setup of this event is nonstandard to be sure, and it could be represented in any number of ways. I'd like to hear opinions.
|Mar-09-19|| ||Tabanus: <Annie> It was 5 matches (and 5 winners), each consisting of a rapid section + a blitz section. So either 5 pages (one for each match), or 1 page. No rapid competition per se, no blitz ditto either: "The player with the best combined rapid and blitz score at the end of the Event shall win that match."|

Thank you for processing my correction slip, which rehabilitated the correct data for this game: V Mikenas vs Vladimir Petrov, 1932
But there still seems to be a glitch with this game concerning the Opening Explorer.
When I type the moves of this game into the Opening Explorer:
[Event "Kaunas (Lithuania) - Riga (Latvia) match"] [Site "Riga"]
[White "Vladas Mikenas"]
[Black "Vladimir Petrov"]
1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 c5 4. cxd5 exd5 5. Nf3 Nc6 6. g3 Nf6 7. Bg2 Be7 8. O-O O-O 9. h3 Be6 10. Be3 b6 11. Ne5 Nxe5 12. dxe5 d4 13. exf6 Bxf6 14. Bxa8 Qxa8 15. Kh2 dxe3 16. fxe3 Be5 17. Qe1 h5 18. h4 b5 19. a3 b4 20. axb4 cxb4 21. Nd1 Qe4 22. Rf4 Bxf4 23. exf4 Bd5 24. Qf1 Re8 25. e3 Rc8 26. Nf2 Rc2 0-1
It gives the correct game stem-point here:
But when I click on the game that is actually listed on this page of the Opening Explorer, instead of opening in to the game, it gives this result:
<Error: Invalid Game ID.
Sorry, the game requested (1281159) is not in our database. It may have been deleted due to redundancy or inaccuracy.>
I assume this has something to do with the fact that the previously inaccurate game data has been corrected to the accurate game data, but the Opening Explorer has not properly incorporated the accurate game data.
I hope this can be fixed? We need accurate data from the Opening Explorer, because we use this facility to check if our "new game scores" might correspond to an already existing game at cg.com. This is how we avoid uploading "new games" that are already in the data base.
|Mar-09-19|| ||jnpope: Edoardo Crespi Pozzi should probably be registered as a player on this site as just Edoardo Crespi with the Pozzi association being part of his bio information. Pozzi was his mother's surname and was only used, in regards to mentioning Edoardo, in the most formal of family lineage cases (basically birth announcements, weddings, and death notices).|
He was the son of Carlo Crespi (father) and Servilia Pozzi (mother). She kept her surname name after marriage; not an uncommon thing in many regions of Italy according to: https://www.italiangenealogy.com/fo...
He was from Milan and was known as Edoardo Crespi in his profession as an accountant and throughout his career as a chess player.
He is given only as Edoardo Crespi (while he was alive) in the chess columns of L'Illustrazione Popolare, L'Illustrazione Italiana, Le Conversazioni Della Domenica, and Emporio Pittoresco. He is also referred to as Edoardo Crespi in Terzo Torneo Nazionale Italiano di Scacchi in Milano, Nuova Rivista degli Scacchi and Guida Elementare per Apprendere il Giuoco degli Scacchi.
Even Gaige lists the man as "Crespi, Edoardo" in Chess Personalia.
He did a ton for chess in Italy from the 1880s until his death (and even posthumously after 1910!) and it is almost criminal that when you search for "Crespi" on this site all that turns up is one consultation game (probably due to the misuse of Pozzi interfering with the how this site does a search engine match on names).
|Mar-09-19|| ||zanzibar: <jnpope> yes, <CG> often does similar things for other players - using far too long a name, or even the wrong chess name - when the elaboration belongs in the bio.|
One of my fav cases of abuse:
Flight Engineer and Science Officer Greg Chamitoff
|Mar-09-19|| ||Annie K.: <Tab> ok, done. :)|
<jnpope> done. Would you like to write a bio for him? ;)
<Jess> no, there was an unfortunate accident involved. The original game required so many changes as per your slip, that when submitted, the game record basically had a nervous breakdown and deleted itself. ;s
So I resubmitted it as a new game, based on your correction slip. :)
Now the Opening Explorer needs to be prodded to index new games as it's apparently lagging lately, but once that's done, it will index the new game and all will be well.
|Mar-10-19|| ||Tabanus: Great <Annie>! Now I'll have to make the xtab, yikes.|
Btw I'm waiting for one Mamedjarova vs Wempe game, in order to try to promote also Corus C 2005.
|Mar-10-19|| ||Tabanus: There are now five Corus events up for voting. Almost no intro, but checked dates, round numbers, etc. I'll try to write longer intros for Corus A 2001 and 2002, but I'am (too?) dependent on online sources and there are no Delpher newspapers after 1995. The Krantenbank Zeeland newspapers don't have much.|
|Mar-10-19|| ||jnpope: <<Annie K.>: done. Would you like to write a bio for him? ;)>|
I cannot commit to anything, but he definitely deserves a bio at some point. After I complete a few other chess related tasks I may be able to add a Crespi bio to my TODO list (but no promises).
|Mar-11-19|| ||Paint My Dragon: <Tab: I'll try to write longer intros for Corus A 2001 and 2002>|
There must be some usable info in the mags. I'll have a look tomorrow and post anything I find here.
|Mar-11-19|| ||Annie K.: Some more uploads... :)
|Mar-11-19|| ||MissScarlett: From my lips to God's ears...|
|Mar-11-19|| ||Tabanus: Thanks <Annie>. Now <six> Corus-es nominated :)|
<Paint My Dragon> Thanks, I'll need that. It may take a while perhaps, will give it a little rest.
|Mar-11-19|| ||MissScarlett: Do we know how long it takes for new games to be <indexed for the Similar Games feature>? Why can't it happen automatically/immediately?|
|Mar-11-19|| ||jnpope: Does anyone know of any chess database software that can handle free castling? The first two Italian national tournaments (1875 Rome and 1878 Livorno) were run under the free castling rules. It looks like Italy adopted standard castling starting with the third Italian national tournament (1881 Milan), but I'd like to "recover" the games from the first two tournaments if at all possible.|
(Ok, back to indexing/proofreading before I draw the ire of the Scarlet one)
|Mar-11-19|| ||zanzibar: What's "free castling"?
I guess I have to go google that...
|Mar-11-19|| ||zanzibar: OK - I doubt very much if any modern chess DB is going to handle free castling:|
Really, the PGN standard, and all chess DB's need to handle illegal moves and the like to handle all games.
This is most simple done if a FEN can be injected anywhere in the move stream (not just as the start of game).
If adopted, then free castling could easily be handled. <CG> could do this if <olga> was modified and lead the way.
(I might talk to Fulvio to enhance SCID similarly - it really would be a simple enhancement - the question is how to notate it properly)
