Thom27: Why should Fencer have to consider putting the prices down? Has he increased them much?

Bernice: Not all people using this site bother with the discussion boards. From what I have seen and read in some boards in the past there was a lot of bickering going on. That might be your cup of tea but it not for some. Some people only play the games and have no interest in the discussion boards. I would not want to use up an hour of my time reading the discussion boards. I would rather play all my games as much as can in the time I have spare..
Fencer has other commitments and this site is not number one anymore and he had the decency to tell us that. However he still does come onto the site every now and again and plays some games. He also does regular updates and informs us when that is taking place. So the site has not 'deteriorated'. This site still functions well.

I'd not say "deteriorated", but the best days clearly have passed.
Maybe Fencer could consider to lower the membership prices?

Smiler.: OK back in the earlier years there were thousands playing each day and only a minimal of these are now playing...Fencer used to be on here every day talking to us and making us all feel welcome...Now there isnt a hidenor heair of him to be seen. you have only been here for a couple of years, Ive been here for about 25 years so you have no idea what it was like back in the day...It might still be the best but it isnt a smidgeon of what it used to be. and as one of the old timers on here said in another group...it used to take just about all day to read everything and play the games now it only takes about an hour.

I have answered my own question about chess, and chess variant tournaments. It's sad to say , but Brain King is slowly Dying. Went through 152 pages of people that have logged in. Found 73 still active, less than half of those were paid members. :-(

Bluefin: Hello Bluefin, and any other Chess variants tournament players.

I have started doing quarterly tournaments occasionally. Currently the only one going at this time is an Embassy Chess tournament. The first round is almost complete, and cannot be joined now. I think next month I will start another tournament, and maybe a couple of other variants, such as Dark Chess. If you'd like to be notified, let me know, and I'll send an invitation your way. I do post the tournament in its matching discussion board. You should check those from time to time for games of your interest. This discussion board is not as good of a place for game notifications.

I use various Fischer clock timing controls to keep the games moving. You usually need to move two to four times a week and can build up a time limit of around 8 days. Some games can take lots of moves, other games are faster with less moves, such as Connect6 which I might also get a couple tournaments going.

I didn't know I had this feature on my tablet. Now I'll use it.
Thank you very much for this very practical information.

Mélusine: I can't speak for *all* tablets, but on iPads you can select text by putting your finger on the beginning (or end) and hold, and then drag to the other end. after letting go, a little menu appears, where 'Translate with Google' is an option (as is 'Lookup' which googles it, nice if there is a word or phrase you don't know). I have no other tablets, but I would guess Androids offer something similar.

Aganju: In Chrome, you can even just highlight with your mouse and right click, and right in the menu, it offers to translate, rather than go to Google Translate. (It pops up in small window at the top right of the screen)

It's the bulgarian language. Bulgarian is written with the cyrillic alphabet, which isn't common for us.
