you might have to rig it so that everyone has to play a game of chess before they can log into here


(just kidding)

haha, not many people here are interested in actually playing. And (most) people that are interested in playing, go in and wait a whole 10 seconds and then exit.

Maybe there should be a little 'invite' function. It lets another user online know that their is a challenge or offer? A little note that says ' so ... many people are playing chess live'

Organise a tourni - a small one. eg the first 6 people to turn up at Play Chess at or before 9:45pm EST Fridays play a round robin blitz. YOU, Karthic, run it, by:
1. Post the players' numbers and pairing table at 9:55pm
2. Games start at 10:00, 10:15, 10:30 ...
3. Process the results sent to you by PM and post an updated cross table every 15 minutes.
4. Declare the winne, the ChessKit Febuary 2004 On -Line Champion, at 11:00pm

If you do not want to do it, I will if someone tells me how to post a crosstable of some kind.

I got no time at all! Just three days left and so much work to do.

You can create a new post on Chess Kit and put all details there and I can copy and paste onto an official page if needed.

I would appreciate if you could do it.

Hear ye hear ye.

I am willing to run a quick and easy tourni here, Sunday two weeks off, March 7, 900pm to ~1030pm. For say ~6 people, round robin blitz, each game starting at 9:00 9:20 9:40 10:00 10:20.

If you are interested, PM me.
