Nov-12-04  Marco65: <> Again: his name is "Fernando", not "Fernanado"
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: <Marco65> First of all, is not very likely to correct this error and sometimes misses kibitzing so I'd send them an e-mail.
Nov-12-04  acirce: I think they want us to click the "suggest your correction" link below and, in this case, check the "The name of this player is wrong" box and possibly provide a source.
Premium Chessgames Member
  cu8sfan: O, I spotted it now. I thought they only had it for games, not for player profiles. Thanks.
Nov-12-04  Marco65: Thanks guys I did that. Sure, chessgames, not chessbase.
Nov-12-04  aw1988: Heh <>.
Nov-12-04  azaris: If <> were to fix this page, they would just add pictures of scenic buildings and scantily clad women GMs.
Nov-12-04  meloncio: <azaris> <... they would just add pictures of scenic buildings and scantily clad women GMs.> Maybe in this case would be justified. Braga means panty in Spanish :-))
Nov-13-04  Marco65: <meloncio> Also in Italian, as a regional form used somewhere. But people take him seriuosly over the board! Anyway, chessgames people were not offended by calling them "chessbase", and fixed the name
Nov-13-04  Lawrence: If this were chessbase they might take this opportunity to show us some photos (hem, hem) of <Sonia Braga>.
Nov-14-04  aw1988: <Lawrence> And show her in a bikini. Or naked on a magazine page. Or talk about her as a sex symbol.
Nov-15-04  aw1988: Or all of the above.
Jul-09-06  BIDMONFA: Fernando Braga

BRAGA, Fernando

May-16-08  biglo: Anyone know why it says Hiarcs after most of the games in the Event Locale?
