Hi, I'm your friendly Chessgames database librarian. My job is to make the database better by processing correction slips.

I'll be using this forum to ask for help when something needs more research. You can use this forum for the same purpose, to get others' input on possible errors or duplicates.

If you've submitted a correction there's no need to post here about it. I will see the correction slip and it will be fixed as soon as possible. Thanks!

A few notes:

1. As you probably know, there's currently a long backlog of corrections. From now on, new corrections will get priority, while I also chip away at the older ones. If you submit a new slip on something that isn't fixed yet, that will bump it up to the top and it will get fixed faster. Please be judicious about this.

2. Probably due to the backlog, volunteer bio editors have started to put "aka" and a duplicate player link in bios. Please don't do this, just submit a correction slip. Similarly, if there's a problem with a player name (such as first and last name reversed), submit a slip on it rather than putting it in the bio, so it can get changed in the database.

3. We also try to delete kibitzes about errors that would be confusing once the error is fixed, so the more you keep the corrections to the correction slip, the less extra work for me and the faster I can correct the database.

CG Librarian: <Slaven MNE> You're right. We also had the wrong Georgiev. I think the error must have gotten propagated from the official site.

CG Librarian: Here's the situation with incorrect game scores for this tournament: we first received many truncated games, then the correct versions. I've removed all the incorrect duplicate games that affect the leaderboards. If you see more please submit a correction slip on them.

CG Librarian: <alexmagnus: Actually if you do the search now you get +9 -5 =27. One Gelfand win from 1990s, present just a week ago, now magically disappeared... Maybe it was attributed to some different players.> Hello, I just saw this. The stats changed because I merged away a ...

CG Librarian: <Domdaniel: Welcome, o Eager and Bright database administrator person.> Thanks, and hello everyone! My chessforum is now available for correction-related comments. I'm sure I'll also be posting things that need additional research, so check back often.
