  GrahamClayton: As well as chess, Stanley B Wilson was also a very good artist as well:

Jan-05-11  Shams: He drew Alekhine (in a game not flagged as being part of a simul) and he only has two games in the db?

There are quite a few players of Wilson's standing and talent who do not have many games in the database. Whenever I come across such games, I upload them to the database, using ChessPad software to create the PGN score.

If every member took the time to upload missing games from time to time, the size and depth of coverage of the database would be increased a lot.

Jan-05-11  Shams: <GrahamClayton> You are absolutely right. In fact, if we could control for only uploading *quality* games, there should be a mechanism so people can get credit for uploading games. Frequent uploaders deserve some sort of gift-culture praise.

A permanent premium membership would be nice - *nudge, nudge, wink wink*
