Yes, I did. More than one. I would not have cared myself; I was not even reading it.

Although I am sure not everyone will be happy with it, adopting the policy described above was the best solution I could think of.
Okay.

Re: Similarity report 2019

Well, the thread was going fine, no insults seen, no accusations seen, just questions asking for explanations. Did you receive any user complaints ?

I continue to be pleased with Schooners efforts to under-trade for a positional advantage. It makes for an interesting style.
Schooner has a 83.57% similarity with Xiphos 0.3 when comparing the results on depth=1, thus basically the evaluation function of Schooner is about the same as Xiphos 0.3

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

I recently tested Allie vs Lc0 on similarity, same NN's thus testing the code base.

http://rebel13.nl/html/nn-500ms.html

http://rebel13.nl/html/nn-1000ms.html

75% is pretty high.

But then NN is a whole different subject in comparison when it's about similarity.

Re: Computer Chess and Capitalism

And another derail, you are not willing to admit (or you just don't see, which is even worse) you broke the charter yourself by calling someone an anarchistic trouble-maker then you are unfit for moderator. Now that we are talking anyway, the rule here is that we have moderator elections twice a yea...

Re: Computer Chess and Capitalism

The question was more, who moderates a moderator that makes himself a subject to moderation. As Dann pointed out, there is more than one moderator. You don't have to beat around the bush: just openly state that you think thread hijacking and publicly quarreling with the moderator in violation of th...

Re: Computer Chess and Capitalism

Then you are wrong on all counts. The thread was not about ChessMaster, but was asking for WinBoard engines. Anyone not suggesting a WinBoard engine was already off-topic. This was a clear example of thread hijacking, to which other people took offense. Thread hijacking is an undesired behavior on ...
