<Good Evening>

I finished converting the <Sultan Khan> match games to this format now:

<Scarlettborough - Zanzibore m>

I was just going on to the <Henry ? Atkins> page to convert the match game notations when I noticed this:

Henry Atkins

Henry Atkins

I am certain you will figure something out. What about an international law to prevent people from naming their nobody children after world historical chess masters? Might be the simplest solution.

Anyways.

I'm glad you, and now also <Stonehenge>, are taking point on rationalizing our player names.

Long overdue.

  MissScarlett: As with the various <Max Lange>s (helpfully there's also a <Maxwell Lange>), I think we need to just suck it up and accept that duplication exists as to names as well as games. Need we employ middle names or initials to differentiate them? I'm not so sure.
Jan-28-21  Z4all: <I'm not so sure.>

Of course you're not, for your purposes things are just ducky, ducky.

Fermat's last theorum was solved eh?

Also how do you spell theorum because google put a red line under my spelling.

It was solved by "Wayne" with huge help from the groundwork done by an enigmatic Japanese mathematician who ended up killing himself.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ym...

His name might not be "Wayne" though. That's the name I "remember."

Yutaka Taniyama that is the name of the ill-starred Japanese mathematician.

His work led to "Wayne" proving the theorem was correct.

Oh! Theorem!

Ah "Wayne" is <Ken Ribet>

This is actually a much more concise account of the discovery in which Ken (Wayne) describes how he cracked it.

Oh no it was <Andrew Weil> who figured out the final connection proving Fermat's last theorem.

My memory is terrible. Anyways sorry to spam in here- as you may suspect I read your comment on the <NN Paul Morphy> controversy page.

Good evening.

On this:

< MissScarlett: <Final question- how do we know which calendar was used for the dates in the Schachblatter?> I notice that in a few places, Amelung give both dates, with the Gregorian in brackets. Fortunately, because of the text-heavy nature of the articles, there aren't a large number of games involved. It will be problematic when a game is dated just by the month.>

I am wondering what your preference might be in these cases?

1. Enter the month given

2. Leave the month field blank

Are there alternatives to these two?

  jessicafischerqueen:

<MissScarlett> Good thinking. I am almost finished changing dates on the Baltische Schachblatter Julian-Gregorian conversions, up to Heft 7 now.Turns out not so many games had already been uploaded, but I changed those that had been to <Gregorian>.

I transcribed and uploaded many other scores. After I do Heft 8 then all the scores (I could read) from the periodical will be in our database.

So far there are around half a dozen scores that have some kind of mistake in them to the extent that I couldn't figure out what the original moves were.

I ran across so few scores that listed only the month that I decided to just leave the month as it is. As you pointed out earlier, sometimes (but rarely) the Julian and Gregorian is given.

In all other cases I converted the scores to Gregorian.

All of the work I did so far is listed in "Heft collections" at the top of my forum. After all the hefting has been done, I will do a final check on all the Baltische games.

In a (very rare) error, you spoiled your <I find ignoring difficult questions always works> strategy, because it just prompted me to post another unnecessarily long, gusting up to unnecessary, post in your forum.

I would have left a much longer post, but I heft to go now.

  MissScarlett: I suggested before that <cg.com> should allow an optional <c.> (for circa) to be added to the date field. This would be helpful not only where an approximate date is known, but also as a marker when the date isn't known with any degree of certainty, e.g., when a game is printed without any firm indication of its date. In such cases, one either gives the date of publication or leaves well alone. True, one could make a special note to that effect a la <Zanzibore>, but who wants to go that much trouble?

  jessicafischerqueen:

That's a good idea. On suggestions, directly to <Stephen> might be a good idea. Maybe suggesting your idea again in the "Stephen forum"?

  MissScarlett: < In such cases, one either gives the date of publication or leaves well alone.>

I should clarify that by date of publication, I mean the year. Harding's book on Steinitz highlights several examples where Bachmann gave exact dates for Steinitz games which were, in fact, their publication dates in the <ILN>, <Era> etc.

<MissScarlett>

You mean that if we don't know the year the game was actually played, that we should list the year in which the game score was published?

What if the score was published 100 years after the game was played?

It would be a rare case, but not impossible. In such a case, would we not try to find other clues as to when the game was most likely played? Here, the "circa" function would be particularly helpful. There might be other dating clues to work from, such as knowledge of what city the player was in over which span of years, for example.

Some time ago, I tried to submit a score to <Annie> with a "?" year field, because I had no idea which year it was played- or published, for that matter. <Annie> told me cg.com does not publish scores with a blank year field, so I should make my best guess. I did, but I would much rather have had the ability to mark the year as "circa."

  MissScarlett: <You mean that if we don't know the year the game was actually played, that we should list the year in which the game score was published?>

Ideally, no, practically, yes.

<In such a case, would we not try to find other clues as to when the game was most likely played? Here, the "circa" function would be particularly helpful. >

An alternative or additional idea would be to allow a <?> mark to be inserted next to the date field. The two could be used interchangeably, but the <?> might be a superior indication of a lack of information.

As I don't think <steve> has the authority to institute a new PGN standard, I suggest he could add a separate function where a <c> or <?> could be appended to the date field in the game header.

  Chessical: <MissScarlett> Apologies if you already know of this game.

Described as "Played by Capablanca at Buenos Ayres against B.H Villegus and Dr Carrauza in consultation."

I believe both names are misprinted and this game is from 1911 with Benito Higinio Villegas and Leopoldo Carranza.

  MissScarlett: I see the game is now with us: Capablanca vs B Villegas / L Carranza, 1911

It did appear in <The Unknown Capablanca>, and, in turn, the Caparros collection.
