Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

What is the sense of an „International“ forum if the forum is not accessible for the international public ?!


We should better shut down the shit and open it somewhere where No IP adresses are blocked.

As it seems USA is not a senseful host anymore.

Re: Non-Polish users cut off from TalkChess

Its a shame.
The word international should be replaced by „from some areas“ instead.

Re: Stockfish: Our lawsuit against ChessBase

To be honest: there is IMO to much copy+past in computerchess in recent years.

Computerchess makes not much fun when engine A is clone of B and new engine C is clone of A or B too.

Cam we go back to the times of closed sources?!

Re: Summer time - how does your PC cooling solution perform?

If the cooler is bullshit, e.g. the AMD cooler often coming with the CPU is too small, the cpu is not reaching normal speed at all because it always throttles when doing computerchess. It might be working in idle mode or normal game usage. But chess demands full resources. By using a bigger/better c...

Re: Summer time - how does your PC cooling solution perform?

IMO the new ryzen cpus have no problem with heat. Running the cores 7/24 in full power in the summer is no big deal. If you put several graphic cards into a small case, could give thermal problems but normally you put graphical cards in extra case outside or in no case at all. In the winter a good o...

It's not a question of fair. Since the foundation of this forum in November 1997 moderators have always been with 3 to ensure a majority vote. Since 6-7 weeks there is no majority vote since moderator Dann resigned. Hence we have new elections.
Well said

Re: Moderator Elections (Comments)

The racistic stuff was in the forum because the moderators in charge did not delete it nor did they ban the racists. Thats why some people demanded new elections. And a campaign from CCC members was started to shut the forum down. Again: the moderators in CTF did not delete the racistic stuff or sto...
