|Dec-21-13|| ||OhioChessFan: <Petrosianic: Is it just a way of increasing post count without saying anything>|
Yeah, much like saying Happy Birthday or RIP to people long dead.
|Dec-22-13|| ||whiteshark: <Petrosianic> Fair questions! It was only yesterday that I've found this link http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal... from where I selected all of my compatriots. I updated their biographical dates if necessary and had a commemorative minute of silence (and thus a post) for them.
No more, no less.
I wish you all the very best!

|Sep-08-19|| ||Gottschalk: Why Bannik doesn't have Notable Games?
If is due that he has become a naturalized German, I want to express my repudiation for the anti-Germanism of this site.
Unfortunately, it often happens that Italian and German players have their Notable Games omitted here. Above all, if they lived during the WW2.
In the past, Chessgames.com has been warned, but has shown little effort to correct the situation. Now, Chessgames.com is under new direction and we hope you will repair this unpleasant coincidence.
|Sep-08-19|| ||perfidious: The designation of games as being notable is based on the criterion--so far as I know--their being in various members' collections, and will always apply to games which are either won or drawn by that player. Any losses would count in a notable section belonging to the opponent. Nationality plays no role; for a while now, these collections have been missing from player pages.|
|Sep-08-19|| ||Retireborn: I have not noticed any anti-German sentiment myself.|
However I do find it surprising that there is apparently no German-language equivalent of chessgames.com. Perhaps creating such a one would be a more productive exercise than complaining on here.
|Sep-08-19|| ||keypusher: <Retireborn: I have not noticed any anti-German sentiment myself.>|
Rot in hell, Bannik! Now there is.
|Sep-08-19|| ||Retireborn: <keypusher> Haben sie gehort das Deutsche Band, Mit a bang, Mit a boom, Mit a bing-bang bing-bang boom?|
|Sep-08-19|| ||keypusher: <Retireborn> The Fuehrer was butch!|
|Sep-10-19|| ||Gottschalk: Gentlemen, I regret having to keep my line of reasoning.
despite what you all said.
Please say in your opinion, because Bannik hasn't notable games here, even though he has them on wikipedia.
|Sep-10-19|| ||Gottschalk: The list of wikipedia does not include the win against MiKhail Tal. However, here at chessgames would be the notable n.1, because it received 12 votes! It was also GOTD
A Bannik vs Tal, 1958
Be kind enough to check what I said.|
|Sep-11-19|| ||Gottschalk: <keypusher>
Your explanation is admirably formal to the times of quantum physics we live in!
Allow me to go further in what I said. A few years ago I made the list
Game Collection: The RENEGATE
for players who should have notable games activated.
After that I fought a battle so that Klaus Junge's notable games could be viewed, but I couldn't do the same for Ludwig Rellstab.
At that times, your comment on Jul-23-15 (on Junge) was Frightening!
|Sep-11-19|| ||keypusher: <Gottschalk>
< keypusher: <Gottschalk: Today the US embassy was reopened in Havana and was seventy years that war finished-WW2.
However, Klaus Junge can not be notable games or photo identifier because of a Jewish-Polish resentment coming from chessgames. This is very undemocratic!>
Darn those Jews and Poles for dragging down an honest democratic SS-man.>
Not bad by my standards.
|Sep-11-19|| ||Diademas: <keypusher: Darn those Jews and Poles for dragging down an honest democratic SS-man.>>|
I don't think Junge was in the SS.
|Sep-11-19|| ||keypusher: <diademas> I was going to vigorously and triumphantly disagree, but...doesn't seem to be so clear. You may be right, dammit.|
Courtesy of <MissScarlett>.
So I'll change my post to <Darn those Jews and Poles for dragging down an honest democratic Nazi.>
|Sep-11-19|| ||Diademas: <keypusher>
I read the second link before posting, but had some quarrels linking to a site called "Axis History", but it seems to be kosher (pun intended).
|Sep-11-19|| ||Gottschalk: <Keypusher>
Yes that's it.
Really? When you want to be systematically opposed,
you can be uninteresting or creative, sober or crazy,
because it will make no difference, the result will be redundantly the same.

Not sure what you want from me. If you want my opinions, I think Sturmbahnfuehrer Junge should get a memorable games list, but I don't feel that strongly about it, and I never lifted a finger to get him one. I never heard that Bannik moved to Germany, and it doesn't affect my opinion of him in the slightest (because I don't have one). The only thing I ever knew about Bannik until a day or two ago was that he lost this lovely game, Tal vs A Bannik, 1962, which Tal wrote up in his autobiography.
I think it's contemptible that you think Daniel Freeman blocked Junge from having a list of memorable games because of Daniel's alleged Judeo-Polacity. Or it would be contemptible if it wasn't funny.
And that is all I have to say on these topics.
|Sep-11-19|| ||Gottschalk: You said it well.
I agree with you on the right that users have to knowing games not be infringed by personal convictions of the manager or webmaster-whoever them are!
I understand that you have a different opinion of mine, but the character of great champions such as Alekhine, Fischer or Kasparov is at least reprehensible-and this extends to the clubs of today and always, since in this sense chess is very democratic.
Why then should I avoid knowing the games of any chessplayer?
For me, political linking is nothing more than a biographical note.
Then, as you will not fight my battles, I would simply ask you not to fight against me.
|Oct-01-19|| ||Gottschalk: Whatever the reason, Bannik notable games remain unenabled.|
