Nov-23-19  Boomie: That Chrome warning is on a few pages but not most. I can't figure out why certain pages are tagged.

For example: GCT Bucharest Rapid & Blitz (2019)

  Annie K.: <Boomie> can you try different page types (i.e., other tournament pages, game pages, player pages, collection pages, search result pages) and let us know where you get a warning?
Nov-23-19  Boomie: <Annie> It looks like all the tournament pages and player pages are marked. The game pages and others are "clean".
Nov-24-19  Boomie: <jessicafischerqueen: I'm getting a "plug in blocked">

Google Chrome has a notice about Adobe Flash being blocked. But otherwise the page loads normally.

Good evening.

When I post these web links in the edit box for the Alfreds Hartmanis biography , they do not work. They show a "malformed script" notice or "run time error" notice instead:

https://lv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfr%...

http://www.edochess.ca/players/p481...

When I post them in the player's Kibbutzing box, they work fine.

I hope this is not a general error across all the player bios, because there are thousands upon thousands of web links published in those player edit boxes.

Good afternoon.

Mystery: SOLVED.

In the player edit boxes, if you post a link in which there is no space at the end of the <[html]> then the link will not work:

[Edo Chess Hartmanis http://www.edochess.ca/players/p481...

But if you leave a space at the end of the <[html ]> then the link will work:

[Edo Chess Hartmanis http://www.edochess.ca/players/p481... ]

  OhioChessFan: On my mobile, when I go to a player page, the first page of games shows the Opening. When I click to the following page of games, the Opening is no longer listed. It would be nice to have the Openings listed for all game pages.

You can have yourself a Scooby Snack.

That's a fact.

Dec-01-19  Boomie: I'm sure this has been mentioned but anything worth doing is worth over doing.

The World Junior's ended a month ago. We should have followed it to begin with but at least it should go into the database, eh?

  MissScarlett: Please remove Robert W Burgess vs S M Sulaiman, 1910 I've resubmitted the game with the full 49 moves.

  FSR: <Stonehenge: Blackburne vs Henry F Down, 1874

Down is one of those stop words CG doesn't allow searching for.>

Apparently <From> is another such word. This leads to a terrible problem: it is very difficult to find the games of the Danish chess legend Martin Severin From. Search for the player <From> and you are told <Sorry, we have no names that exactly match 'FROM' in our database.>. Look for him in the Player Directory and you find that he's not there.

From is the eponym of <From's Gambit>, 1.f4-e5!!, the bane of players named Peter. See P Napetschnig vs F Rhine, 1977 and P Pantelidakis vs F Rhine, 1974.

  OhioChessFan: It would be nice if the Opening of the Day link on the homepage could be directed to:

A. a kibitzing page for that general opening, or

B. the current default of that exact position in Opening Explorer

to be determined by a user setting.

  FSR: I just submitted two essentially identical games. The only difference is that White's name is variously indicated as <Heinzy1971> (the player's handle on chess24.com) and the celebrated NN. Please use the latter.

I would appreciate it if you would add this comment/annotation: <4...g5 is the Karklins Gambit, named for its inventor, FM Andrew Karklins.> Thanks!

Anyone interested can play over this game at https://www.denverchess.com/games/v....

Anyway, Happy Birthday!

  FSR: Presumably today's POTD (Nakamura-Inarkiev) should have begun a half-move early and been "Black to Play," rather than "White to play." White lost the game.
