TCEC oddity

Post by Dann Corbit » Tue Nov 07, 2017 1:36 am

When I go to connect to TCEC, I am getting a popup that says:

Email Verification
Please verify your email first
[Verification code]
send verification code

[verify]


Am I the only one seeing this? I never saw it before.
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Something seems to have changed with the Chatbox. It used to show the chat regardless of whether you were logged in. Now it's showing a message:

"Must login or switch to another login type to access the chatbox"

with a big box giving options on how to log in. The game itself still shows for me though.

Same here. It seems to be impossible to verificate the email because one can't type anything. Also not an email. I deleted the chatwing cookies and created a new account. Works again now.

It is not an issue with TCEC, but with chatwing.

Clicking on the link in the e-mail with the verification code worked fine for me.

I think there was some measures taken to prevent constant spamming from a certain mentally unstable troll that hangs out in the TCEC chat.

No such problem here. I've removed the junk from the website with ublock origin and umatrix. Have a look at the clean and simple look focusing on chess.

I got the same thing, but later I got an email from chatwing with the needed verification code.
Finally, I entrered that code, and the problem disappeared...
(...more or less, because I then still received about a dozen emails with verification codes!). Strange Chatwing initiative!!!

BTW, Dann, you never answered me about the possibility of generating a non-NUMA compile of Cfish.
