    Chesskit. See http://chesskit.com/ (somewhat out of date now). Used to be the "main" site for this forum. If you click on "community" you wind up here.

    Thanks Garrett.

    I'd just like to say thanks at this point to Barry (Rincewind) for the excellent work he has done doing practically all the forum admin work over the past few years. In particular, this forum couldn't live without effective spam control and Barry has been the major part of that. Other important parts of the admin's role include creating and archiving forums and providing more flexible options for the mods to deal with problem posters (such as setting up the option to ban people from the shoutbox without a full site ban).

    Having added admin functions will not be affecting our level of activity as moderators. It will take me a while to get my head around them all anyway.

    Let me second Kevin's comments regarding the excellent work done by Barry. His admin role has also seen him responsible for any IP bans of spammers, making requested username changes etc.

    While not privy to the machinations of the specifics, I know enough to echo the sentiments expressed above.

    No, we were only moderators. Now we are admins and moderators!

    Most likely we will be able to use it to reduce workload rather than increase it, eg we can probably find still more ways to kill off spammers before they can post.

    It does increase our powers in theory but probably not much in practice since significant changes to the forum in the past that have required admin power have typically been made by consensus involving the admins and active mods.

    It also increases our responsibilities because there is more stuff we can see that it would often not be responsible to reveal.

    Ditto, and I am sure they will. I join with others in offering my thanks to Barry Cox for the great job he has done as an Admin - and I am sure will continue to do. (He is excused from Admin and Mod work at the moment. He is of course playing chess at Manly!)

    "Chess Australia" forum closed and moved to archive. Newsbot postings to this forum ceased in mid-2007 and since then the forum has simply caused confusion with many threads being placed in it that should have been placed in other forums. All threads posted to it since the newsbots ceased posting have been rehoused in their appropriate places.
