Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

2 . The "gaard" guy has been accepted as CTF nominee. He has been away for 1.5 year, shows up 2 weeks ago. Correct me if I misunderstand the rule: Sam - Nominee and voter criteria remain the same as in past elections; i.e., those who have been members for less than six months or have less than 40 r...

Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

Hello! I would be interested to here from anyone who voted to shut it down, if their position was a decision in principle, or a decision to shut down Ctf as it is now. ... as it is now. But I doubt that it can become something else. I read CCC+CTF since 2018 (if I remember correctly): I never saw a...

Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

37 posters want Ctf shut down. The counting is wrong and intimidating with an already started election. I don't want to be part of this community any longer. This is the entire reason why forums such as CTF shouldn't exist in the open in a community such as this one. They create strife in the commu...

Re: Unfair Poll

Well, may be I should remember you to this post of yours, just one day old? http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=75468&start=200#p868730 Obviously the elections already (were) started before anyone was knowing, who is allowed to vote/being voted at all? Also I think that a member of one ...

Re: Unfair Poll

What would there be to run for if there is no more CTF? But if candidates insist, I would not try to prevent them running for moderator-of-nothing. I would probably withdraw from such an election myself, though. IMO it was a bit premature to call for elections before the survey even closed (which w...

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

Most of the time I cannot log in through my VPN. This is a rare moment when I can. And I am going to use it to write that as long as this situation persists, I will not post on this forum. My lifelong habit was to avoid discriminatory environments, and TalkChess became one of them. I will never acc...

Re: Unfair Poll

Applying the above established eligability criteria, 50 posts and six months registered, to the responses so far, the situation is: Close CTF - 30 votes Don't close CTF - 26 votes. by all means, give us a list of 'voters' who you think have no right to affect this decision. Note that criteria on po...

Re: 14th ACCA World Computer Rapid Chess Championships

On Charles, reply to 2. Above. Mine is not rated on CCRL and won’t be because they don’t rate private engines. It has a rating of about 2750 or so at 5 1 on the nightmare.nl server and it gained maybe 150-200 or so in it’s time there because A) it now has a book, B) I implemented last SMP and C) it...
