    Some rules for the un-initiated:

    1) A player can claim a result once a tablebase position is reached. So as soon as the 5/6 man tbs are showing a result and the result is claimed and verified by myself, the game is over.

    If the position is showing a win in more than 50 moves, the 50 move rule does not apply and the result is a win.

    2) Please make sure that the move you post in the game is the move you want to play. Incorrect move notation is a binding move and can not be retracted, if the move is legal of course.

    So please be careful.

    Also, after a game is finished, it is appreciated if one of the participants from the finished game writes the result in this thread, so I am aware of it and can adjust the cross table as required.

    Time control:

    In a previous thread, KB and I came around to this proposal:

    * Three day increment for each move, cumulative from a base of seven days (eg must play move 1 by day 7, move 2 by day 10, move 3 by day 13, etc)
    * Seven days maximum for any given move.

    Sorry about that, I've just been really busy the last few days, but go on without me.

    Well done Garvin on the tournament win. Beat me comprehensively in both our games.

    I'm going to avoid playing these things in future if the entrants don't have a proven record of finishing games.

    Now that I have run quite a few of these, I really think it is time that we start keeping a list of unapproved withdrawers and only those with a track history of finishing games are allowed to enter.

    So the first two unapproved withdrawers:

    Saragossa
    Schu

    I was thinking of a 'Dog Box' in Kaitlin's where miscreants are locked-up and placed on show for the world to see. Not so much for those discuss and preempt their disappearances, but more the peepz that just drift away leaving everyone else to work out what's going on.

    Oddly a very high proportion of young people. What does that tell you?

    For some time I have been marking games [timeout] so a dredge through recent tournaments would probably give you a good idea of who has a history of timing out.

    I think that many people are surprised at the amount of effort involved. Even just remembering to reliably monitor the forum and make moves reliably on cue is a serious commitment. Let alone playing well enough to do it justice.

    This will be the policy from the next tournament on!
