Re: On the ownership of TakChess

I'm not gone, just enjoying retired life. The world has come to a clone-happy place, which is OK by me since the majority should rule. But I don't particularly want to participate in such development. I occasionally reply to something here, but not very often. My take on this specific issue is that...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

So you can confirm Chris and Thorsten's account of things, that the forum is owned by the members, and that the deal with ChessUSA was that they can host it only as long as the members are satisfied with this arrangement and don't decide to seek other hosting? (Simple question; Yes/No can suffice.....

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

Indeed, the replacement forum is already there, and it in a short time it can be made superior to this one, as we have full access to the software there. But I don't think that it will attract any visitors, no matter how many fancy features it has, and how crappy the forum is here, if it would be i...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

That would sound reasonable if Ed wasn't firmly in Quentin's camp... I’ve no idea what camps there are and are not. The important thing is that there are identifiable Custodians of the forum/brand name and so on, and that ICD/Quentin have driven a coach and horses through the terms they were allowe...

Re: On the ownership of TakChess

Turn the question round the other way. Concerning only the forum (not the domain name, not the posts, not the software), just the concept and brand. Charter says “group of individuals” originated the forum. Eg owns the concept, the name, the brand and the power to “set up the forum”. Where is the si...

Re: Task force TalkChess access

Chris, I don't remember a contract. Enlighten me. Of course there was. Do you imagine the forum was just handed to ICD with no control or guidelines on ICD about what they could do or not do? Do you imagine that ICD set it all up by themselves without getting us to agree to post to it and not rgcc?...

Chris,
Do you have a copy of that contract?
Doubt it, it was nearly quarter of a century ago. I remember the gist of it though.

Re: Task force TalkChess access

... Whatever your issues were in the past, whatever you are projecting now onto whomever, it does not help the current situation (and it did not help in the CTF case btw.). Try to be a part of the solution, fix your mistakes as founder from the past. The founders handed over the domain and forum to...

Re: Is Scorpio stronger than AlphaZero?

... Also May I suggest you take a step back of from starting so many posts in talkchess -- I certainly didn't ask for Scorpio to be compared to A0. +1 +2 +3 +4 What is the point of trying to stir up all these contentious issues...? It seems very close to trolling. Arguably, site traffic. Else you w...
