Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-22  Olavi: Valeri Beim was a rather surprising invitee in this rapid tournament, considering the fame of the others.

  perfidious: Beim had a curious result, drawing all his games with White and finishing +3 as Black.

  Tabanus: If it was a rapid tournament, why are the games not labeled as rapid? They now contribute to the Classical games statistics.

  MissScarlett: Quit griping and report it. The Site tags also need changing to <Frankfurt GER>.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: They must have uploaded dozens of rapids in the mega upload. Quit griping about me and find them for us.

Feb-03-22  Olavi: A lot of post-1990 rapid games count here as classical and many head-to-head scores are therefore very wrong. The Frankfurt Classics and Siemens Giants series of tournaments are clear examples, I think Roquebrune too.

  MissScarlett: <The Frankfurt Classics and Siemens Giants series of tournaments are clear examples>

Some, at least, of those have been fixed, as I remember.

At the risk of repeating myself, the harvest is great but the labourers are few. If this site had, say, 50 regular volunteer editors, not 5, we could really get some work done. We could assign detachments, yes, detachments of editors to tackle a particular issue.

Speaking of detachment - even during the "Golden Era", it never even came close to 50 workers.

  Tabanus: <not 5>

There's a reason why we're only 5. The management is so incompetent that old editors left (greatest loss: luftforlife) and no new ones arrived.

  MissScarlett: <luftforlife> Oh yes, I liked him; he used to say a lot of nice things about me. Then - poof - he just disappeared without trace. It seems more likely that he just dropped dead (the average <cg> user must be at least 70) or got hit by a bus than he left for the reason you suggest.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Maybe, but I remember just before he left he was angry at CG and demanded an excuse.
Feb-03-22
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Being angry at <cg> isn't a bug, it's a feature. It's why we keep coming back. That's the social media model in a nutshell.
Feb-03-22
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: So CG is just social media? I should have thought of that before being an editor.
Feb-03-22
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Not just. Neither does <cg> just make us angry. It delights, it fascinates, it inspires. We're all going to be here for the rest of our lives. You know it's true.

It incites, it incinerates, it expires.

(Couldn't help myself...)

< We're all going to be here for the rest of our lives.>

Natural or unnatural?
