World Of Chess And Variants (videos from BrainKing):
normal procedure for business people is to make back ups daily on different media (zips, tapes or hard disks). This way you have 7 different back ups a week and they can not get corrupted all at the same time!
Make the pawn a free trial membership for 6 months, those who are really interested will pay for an upgrade to a higher level. Delete all others after that 6 months. I know some will make a new account but with the actuel "pawnship" it is a lifetime free membership! The membership fee for the levels is up to Fencer and Liquid. They have to see it as a kind of business, value for money will make it a success. Asking to much the players will leave, asking for just a pittance BK can not survive by a shortage of money
Gubbe, try to remember my messages as I wrote them. I NEVER promised a new server, i promised to contact some people about it (what i did), but i doubt i can find sponsors to create addicts. Chief KM: I never said I don't like Eddy, I feel sorry for him
no Gubbe, but he has played here about 4000 games in that time (385 right now) and playing on some other site: we call that an addict! What do you want, give him an award for slowing down the site the most of all
I have an opponent in a screen chess tourney who didn't play for 12 days now, since he knows that i am winning. It is my last game in that tourney and can not enter an other screen chess tourney as long as the time is suspended, while he is playing every day in all kind of games except in the game we are playing. A bit odd?
Stop it Danoschek, I am not sure he will do this!
He has to believe in this site before he put any money into it. I know Jeroen Piket, a formally top chess player and now his right hand, so I can give it a try!!
Fencer, what I want to hear is an answer on my idea a few weeks ago of giving a life time rook membership to the one who can arrange a new server for free by contacting his connections!
For example the FIDE (World Chess Federation) or Mr. van Oostrum (sponsoring chess tournament for much more money) might be interested to do so, but i did not get any answer! Do you really want your new server?
It is also in the Elo, they mark ratings from player who did not play enough games in the last year with an *, anyhow the FIDE (The world chess federation)does so, I am not familiar with the USCF way to handle this
Just an idea Fencer: give us any idea of the price for a new server and offer a lifetime Brain rook membership for the one that finds a source or sponsor who can provide the server or the money to buy one
The first double entrance is already discovered. Herculesbeast and Savage are the same and even play eachother to get one on the first place of a ranking list. He admitted it to me when I asked him about it. I am not entering this tournament, it takes to long to play a tourney with more then 100 players
Maybe i have a sick mind but i have problems with the "brains" to owe. Every time I see zero brains behind my name i think: I am not a lunatic, i have brains. Can't you give it an other name???????? (lol)
Fencer, in my game against Tonyh i placed a pawn on C5, clicked on the usual button to return to the main page and see that the move is not done and it is still my turn. I tried it 5 or 6 times.
What's up? Uil
