Hello i am a new administrator on cg. I do play chess but not active. Still love the game though. My aim is to improve and update cg as much as possible. I think this will be noticed by cg's loyal users. Is a team effort! Glad to be part of the team. Full Member

   Caisso has kibitzed 44 times to chessgames   [less...]
   May-02-22 L Christiansen vs G Orlov, 1994
Caisso: 35.Bd5 winning Larry was leading the tournament before this game
   Mar-21-22 chessforum (replies)
Caisso: Sounds like some sort of glitch apart from uploading player games and missing duplicates.
   Mar-20-22 V Arbakov vs N Rashkovsky, 1978
Caisso: 42. Qb2 winning, says Stockfish
   Mar-19-22 J M Fuentes vs Alekhine, 1945 (replies)
Caisso: It is a winning position on move 40, according to Stockfish. Even in the final position White is much better.

Caisso: So.. my avatar is an issue?! lol

  MissScarlett: <6) Opening Explorer - We need to update the Opening Explorer to recognize newly uploaded games>

User: stevemcd87

Could you make this one of your regular duties?

  stevemcd87: Hey <Caisso>,

A request to update the New Events section. chessforum

Premium Chessgames Member
  Caisso: At this time there are no features for me to help with the opening explorer. This is on stevemcd87's to do list.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: But Steve did it already. #5 in his Completed Tasks list. He just needs to pass on the keys to you.

  Chessical: <Caisso> For some reason the Opening Explorer switches back to White at the bottom of the board when you are reviewing it with colours inverted (Black at the bottom of the board). It does it here:

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 d6 6. Bg5 e6 7. Qd2 a6 8. O-O-O Bd7 9. f4 b5 10. Bxf6 gxf6 11. Kb1 Qb6 12. Nxc6 Bxc6 13. f5 b4 14. Ne2 e5 15. Ng3 h5 16. h4 Qc5

It happens on some long lines but not on others.

  stevemcd87: <Caisso> Please take a look at <Tab>'s comment ( stevemcd87 chessforum ) regarding 23rd European Women's Team Championship (2021)

Re Opening Explorer:
<Caisso> has nothing to do with the this feature.
My goal is to have it automated.
<Chessical> I have noticed that bug, I'll try to find a solution for it soon.
We have 9 days left before the big event, It'll have to be sometime after. Sorry for the delay

A lovely little thinker

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <Caisso> Congrats with disentangling (I think successfully) the two events. I'll sort the Swiss again. This remains:

European Team Championship (Women) (2021) (2021), it's 2021 twice.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Plus the kibitzing on Grand Swiss (Women) has ended up on European Team Championship (Women) instead.

The latter has no kibitzing yet.

  Stonehenge: Are you the one who has uploaded thousands of games lately?

Many duplicate player files have been made and also many duplicate games.

Please do not upload crap like

I actually like crap in the database! Great fun!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Caisso: On account of duplicate games.. We got a few dozen duplicates that got through the filters. We are working to improve the filtering system that usually detects such duplicates.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: Do these duplicate games typically have annotations? I suspect that's why they're getting through. As a general rule, I think annotations should be avoided, or removed, where possible.

  MissScarlett: With the obvious exceptions of <Joseph Henry Blackburne> and <Raymond Keene>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: Please don't put FIDE IDs in the bios. They don't belong there. And in most cases there is already a FIDE ID just above the bio area, where they belong.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Caisso: Will not put the FIDE link in the bio.

  Caisso: I have done a lot of updates throughout the databases. Many of them where in bad need of updating. I am very happy with the progress i have made so far.

  Susan Freeman: Tabanus: Fine job? Lol. Caisso's intro to 82nd Armenian Championship (2022) is crap. Chess24 is official site? 121 games? Fields not filled out. No intro would be better. The games have wrong Site. It's already clear that this is the standard we'll get, and worse. The only ones who can't see this is Susan and Caisso.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Why is the following game rejected? There is nothing wrong with it.
