    You could enforce that every edit must be accompanied with a screen shot which includes the time of edit and post.
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    So no opening books?
    One thing to consider is maybe that many people use corro games as a study tool with this in mind. Personally I like playing a serious game with the option of looking up a line occasionally. It does get boring waiting 4 days for a 12th move of theory though:>

    I think if you want to do that you should get the opponent's approval in advance.

    To bring everybody up to speed.

    ICCF permits the use of computers.

    ICCF also allows you to claim results based on th Namilov 6 man databases.

    So far I have lost one game in a difficult endgame and drawn one to my opponents great surprise. I had checked it out manually before I realized that I could claim the draw. Incidentally two strong programs both believed that my opponent was winning.

    I only play tournaments where computer programs are allowed. One reason is that many of my opponents do not understand the strengths and weaknesses of computer programs.

    They misjudge positional sacrifices.

    They misplay endings.

    They have trouble in stodgy positions.
