    I'm more interested in whether information is being published, thanks to David Esmonde for his efficiency in assisting. There are definitely improvements to be made but i dont see this as much of a priority to be honest.

    The front page of the ACF Website is now full of relevant information! Thank-you to David Esmonde for placing photos and news of the four winning schools at The Australian Schools Finals from Saturday November 30 and Sunday December 1 up on the website! News about the upcoming Australian Chess championships and Australian Junior Chess Championships are also there as well as information about the upcoming FIDE Arbiter's Seminar! This a big improvement on the out of date imnformation that has been there for ages!

    Some feedback from one of our members...asking for searchable ACF ratings and a mobile friendly site.

    To this end we have addressed the first core issue. We had to upgrade auschess to run on php 7.4

    You will need to refresh your browser caches if you load an auschess.org.au page and only the heading loads.

    Regards - David E

    This is a bit above my pay grade, but I believe that this line in the html of the main page: "<meta name='robots' content='noindex,nofollow' />" may be the problem:
    A ‘noindex’ tag tells search engines not to include the page in search results. ... To tell search engines not to index your page, simply add the following to the </head> section: <meta name=”robots” content=”noindex, follow”>

    Thank you! Much appreciated. My ACF standard rating has rounded to 1500. Well below the 1666 I used to be in NZ!

    Yes, and the active theme as well discourages search engine indexing.

    I am waiting to chat with Dave Thomas on this and other issues, but at present he is still not in easy contact in China. I am reluctant to change existing structure without the permission to do so.

    There is no listing for a winner of the Koshnitsky Medal for 1997 on the CAQ list.

    http://auschess.org.au/honour-boards/

    Can anyone shed any light on this?

    So I just tried this and found it easily using multiple different search engines, on multiple different browsers, on multiple different computers, including using incognito mode and while logged out, in every case as the first hit when searching the words:

    In any case, even if this is a problem, it can be fixed in a couple of minutes by simply submitting it to search engine so not much of an issue

    The words "ACF chess" are also effective, although "ACF" by itself produces a lot of false positives - as you'd expect.

    This issue has been fixed, so it was presumably the cause of the original problem:

    Looking forward to the Doeberl Cup and SIO, still proudly advertised on the front page of the ACF web site and in the general calendar.

    Ian, you should have realized that at times Like this, ACF is socially isolating itself from the website .
