TCEC should reconsider the ban on Ethereal

Post by arunsoorya1309 » Mon Jul 16, 2018 4:42 am

Hi TCEC Organizers,

Whatever be the personal issues between the admin and the developer, we should not be deprived of
seeing this wonderful engine from competing in TCEC season 13. This is a great loss for open source
dev. Age has been really wonderful person and i don't think this really warrants a ban [This equates
him with some one like A.R.B which is highly insulting].

Anton please reconsider the ban.

Regards,
Arun

The tricky thing about tipping points is you can only define them in retrospect.
Who can say which choice led to a car crash, or which cigarette started the cancer? And so we blindly stumble forward, never sure how close we are to the edge.

Thank you all for your support. Even If I am an outcast of TCEC, it would be an absolute shame to not see Ethereal competing.

Anyone who would like more information can reach out to me here on Talkchess, or send me an email here <andrew@grantnet.us>

Furthermore, if you feel that this situation is unjust, I would be grateful if you would reach out to Anton <e-mail address removed at poster's request> and share your thoughts on the situation.

Cheers,
Andrew Grant

Why was Ethereal banned ??! They sure seem to have a fondness for banning over there... :|

I am happy to announce that Ethereal and I will in fact be apart of Season 13 of TCEC!

I would like to thank those involved for this swift resolution, as well as the opportunity to showcase Ethereal in front of everyone once again.

The competition and exposure from TCEC has been a great catalyst for improvement in Ethereal.
