Re: Moderator Elections (Comments)

I did not follow. On which candidate do I have to vote to shut talkchess.com down.
I don't like to be dependent on two sites. One site (Prodeo.actieforum) is enough.

Arbitrator

Watching judo this morning. Some got warnings when being too passive. I think after three penalties you lose the match.
So I thought why don't we use that when chess engines are playing too passive. So in case of a draw the engine that played too passive looses the game.

Re: Moderator Elections

Is it possible to nominate an AI bot as a member of a moderation team.
Or how do you know if some persons here are no AI bots or humans using AI bots.

Re: Not reproducible

Ok. I think I found it. Transposition table was not cleared so it contained old values of positions where special endgame evaluation is not used.
My engine only swiches to other evaluation function at start of the search. Not when bareking situation occurs.

Re: Not reproducible

End game evaluation is called. So bug somewhere in that evaluation. Fills psqtable with values distance from corner. Also computes distance between kings. So something wrong there.
