Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

But even less I would simply let the data stored here go without even trying to save them in one way or the other. I agree. But Talkchess is no longer a place where you can reliably store and retrieve information. Email Quentin Turner at YMC&G directly with your problems and concerns ([email protected]...

Re: CoronaVirusChess

Than move this into the help and suggestions (!!!) forum and I am Sure you will get some help. IMO these whole postings are off topic in the main CCC area. When I see a topic: CoronaVirusChess and then I read how you want to discuss punishments or brainstorming about moderation issues I am fooled b...

Re: CoronaVirusChess

I am irritated that a computerchess Forum suddenly discusses moderation actions in public instead of posting computerchess topics. Has the forum changed into Computer Inquisition Forum because Sam or HGM or Ras have nothing else constructive to say other then discuss moderation issues in public. If...

Re: CoronaVirusChess

Well, now that we are takening the broader view, perhaps we can use the opportunity to use this thread as a case study for the preferred style of moderation: Some of the postings in this thread (not nearly the worst, IMO) were just reported with the complaint that they were 'CTF-level'. (Interestin...

Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

Again, from what I've read it doesn't seem likely that any new mods will be able to clean it up. I might be wrong, but that's how it looks to me. New moderators who are willing to clean up CTF stand ready to do so. Give them a chance. To enlighten us all on specifics, I invite these potential new m...

Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

Exactly. So if we are sure an account belongs to a real person, there is no reason to apply any course approximative criteria to exclude him from voting, right? Not even if he happens to vote different than we would like. No objection, adding the intention of the stipulation would solve the ambiguo...

Is the poll still open? I vote for a new "old men fighting" forum. I will join it in 15 years... Well, probably not.
You take it way too serious...

Re: Unfair Poll

As a small reminder to CCC members who don't know what this is about, because they have not followed the original discussion on CTF: This point 1 that Chris wanted to 'negociate' (perhaps extort would be a more accurate description...) concerned exclusion of members that only post in CCC from the C...

Re: Unfair Poll

I guess the hastiness comes from those who operate behind closed doors, coupled with statements of what will happen from one of those operators and the negating opposite from another. In practice now, nobody can know if an election go-ahead is happening or not. I personally have no idea even if my ...

Re: Question to Shut Ctf Down posters

Well, but he voted for shutdown in this 'survey'. So did I, but since it looks like the shutdown poll is being ignored, the backup option is implementing SHID as CTF moderator team, which in turn requires three mods agreeing on that policy - and of course, them being elected in the CTF election. Th...
