    Kaitlin's Online Chess Ladder

    This is just a thing im thinking about for me and my friends and anyone who plays online like a little compitition thing. Im not even completely sure how it will work yet. And I couldnt pick which part to put it in so I put it here.

    Do not post comments in this thread... this will be for the ladder itself - not for discussions

    Disscussion is allowed now and I will either get posts deleted form here or make a new threat once we get started.

    So far I have decided..

    1. you can challenge the person 1 place above you
    2. the loser drops 3 places
    3. if the person above you declines your challenge 3 times in a period yet to be decided they drop 1 place

    Ok this is what Ive thought of (just this second) but its looking good -> Its going to be a KnockOut tourney ladder... and if you lose a game .. you go to the bottom of the ladder... its not going to be like heaps of games just scheduled games but you have heaps of time to play them in .. and long games (or short ones if the players want that)... but if you lose, you get knocked off the ladder and fall all the way to the bottom.. splat, but you can rejoin at the bottom of the list

    Aw Nice :0)

    Looks like Kaitlins has got the right idea now- for a ladder tourney would be very nice.

    Have played alout of other games in the ladder style onlines. Would be great to set up a online Chess Ladder Tourney here at Chesschats.

    Looks like all that time didnt go to waste Kaitlins. keep up the good work. <"-">

    Post Chess Ladder - Rules as @ 17th Feburary 2009

    Chess Ladder - Rules as @ 17th Feburary 2009

    Here are the General Rules:

    1. You can only challenge the person directly above you in the ladder.
    2. You have 1 month from the time a challenge is issued to you to play your game.
    3. The loser of the game drops to the bottom of the ladder.
    4. You can choose not to play the game especially if you unavailable in which case after the 1 month period you will just drop down one position and the challenger will move above you.
    5. If a player drops to the bottom of the ladder all thier challenges become void
    6. Challenges should be posted in this thread and corresponding result.

    nb: The Games are not played in the thread like in a corro tourney, they can be played anywhere - FICs, Playchess, ICC, OTB or in corro games in Chesschat but not in this thread


    Here are the start up Rules:

    1. If you want to be added to the ladder PM me your name and mention Chess Ladder
    2. Mostly players will be added to the bottom of the ladder in order of application, but if a good player joins they will be insert at the bottom of thier prospective rungs.

    Kaitlin, will you have a mattress or trampoline at the bottom of the ladder. Some of us are very weighty you know. Are we insured? We all can't be at the bottom of the ladder - are some lower than others? Should I bring a crash helmut?

    Now to stay relevant when will it begin?
