  Tabanus: <Steve> I managed to lose two games that should go into 11th EU-ChW playoffs (2010). They were between Dembo and Zhukova. I suppose they are now invalid ghost games.

Excuse: I created a new tournament (with 0 games) but there was no new tid given for it so it took me two lost games to realize I could make the event visible in TI (even with 0 games) by clicking on Kibitzable.

<Stone> What's wrong with your editor page?

  stevemcd87: <Can you create a rolling list of recently uploaded games? I'm still concerned with the issue of the unchecked, unsupervised facility of submitting and approving games. Such a list would provide a semblance of oversight.>

<MissS> This is a great idea, I'll get working on this ASAP

  stevemcd87: <Tab> We are now able to delete <ghost duplicates> using the editor page.
When processing the games, it provides the game id of the duplicate.
In this case it was <d=1578123> and <d=1578124>.
After confirming that they were <ghost duplicates>, I was able to use the new "Get GID" feature to delete the games.
I was then able to process the games without any other issues.
Y Dembo vs N Zhukova, 2010
N Zhukova vs Y Dembo, 2010

Eventually, we would be able to use a similar strategy to update the <eco> when receiving the <invalid game> error for odds game and null move games.
I don't believe updating an <invalid game> is working correctly at the moment but you can delete and try again.

  Tabanus: <Steve> All problems solved :)

Thanks for the steady progress! And I should have remembered that the duplicate id is there also for ghost games.

  MissScarlett: A recently uploaded game is an example of the need for supervision:

Browne vs T Kurosaki, 1970

Unknown is who submitted it, and which editor approved it.

  jessicafischerqueen:

<MissScarlett>

At least this one has a source tag listed, though it looks a little bizarre to me:

<[Source "HERALD & NEWS, Dublin - Livermore - Pleasanton, Monday, December"]>

I agree on supervision, but this should be supplied by those few of us editors who can process uploads.

We will need tools to do this supervising. For example:

1. The date of processing and the name of both the uploader and the processor should be recorded automatically in every case.

2. This data should be made automatically visible to those editors who can process uploads.

I can help a bit in the short term by telling you that I didn't upload this game. I know exactly which games I upload because I keep a public record of every single upload I have ever submitted or processed.

This record can be found in the JFQ games collections, which are visible to all users.

The game in question Browne vs T Kurosaki, 1970 seems a little fishy to me as well, based on the score.

Did Walter Shawn Browne really play 7.h4 from this position?

And did Kurosaki really play 7...h5 from this position?

I think there is something wrong with this game score.

<MissScarlett>

Nice catch, and even nicer fix.

You tracked down the properly documented (and typed out) source, and have supplied the correct score:

[Source "Herald & News (Livermore, CA), 1970.12.21"]

QUESTION: How did "Dublin" get in to the original source tag, I wonder...

Jun-08-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Apparently a ghost Dublincate, proving a good point.
Jun-08-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: The Herald covered the <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tri-V...> but it seems to have been published in Livermore. The original source was supplied by <login>: http://www.chessdryad.com/articles/...

  Tabanus: <After confirming that they were <ghost duplicates>, I was able to use the new "Get GID" feature to delete the games.> I have not tried this way yet, but suppose that was by merging the bad ghost game with the good game. (I do have merged tids with only 1 game (the same game) in each.)
Jun-08-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: Stupid question: If one submits a game identical to the ghost game it will be rejected but you will find the gid of the ghost game. But what if the ghost game has a different game score? The submitted game will be accepted and you still don't know the gid of the ghost game?

stevemcd87 chessforum (kibitz #297)?

Jun-14-21
Premium Chessgames Member
  stevemcd87: Hello everyone,
There was an update and seems to have brought bugs with the editor page. I will be working on them.

Feel free to report any bugs you find here. I'll get to them ASAP

  Stonehenge: Take for example

Venice (1953)

Only some Norcia games should missing.

<Canal> only shows six games but when you click on <games> you see Venice (1953)/Esteban Canal

The Editor doesn't work.

I can't find any editors and I can't process my games.

It says <Selected User: Stonehenge> and when I click on Show Submissions I don't see the games I've just uploaded (round 9 of GCT Bucharest Classic (2021))

Also I don't see the round eight games anymore, which I've uploaded yesterday.

  juan31: < stevemcd87> Guess the move out of order
Jun-15-21  login:

Here is an example you are able to play through several tasks in one checking the present functionality:

Rename Karl Hoeing to Carl Hoeing (𝙃𝙤̈𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙜)

Update ??.??.1850 - Jun 07 1923

Merge (kibitzing)/delete Hoeing


One unpleasant bug [various desktop browsers, German settings] is also noticable in this example:

You might (not) have come across a different character encoding (UTF-8) between both the Bio and the Kibitzing. Unintentionally the 'update' broke (at least my) browsers' capability to correctly display https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diaer... throughout the site's Kibitzing portion (and members forums headers).

This should be looked into soon, as a constant stream of new Kibitzing coming in might complicate matters beyond ?äÖöü?. 𝙏𝙝𝙖̈𝙣𝙠𝙨.
