    ACF not associated with this bb?

    The ACF has ended any association with the ChessKit Bulletin Board.
    This quote is from the recent ACF Newsletter.

    I'm not sure what the advantages and or disadvantages of being associated with this bulletin board is...

    But why have the ACF "ended any association with the ChessKit BB"? Just curious.

    disclaimer- i am not a chesskit or acf council member, but i think i can give the answer.

    tparker- if you remember back to when we used the yabb board, there was some discussion regarding legal liabilities for the acf from what was posted on the yabb board. Chesskit offered to have this board for our use and that the acf would have no association with this board. Therefore the acf cannot be held legally liable for anything posted here.

    this was a point that i tried to tell arosar- but he responded that i should get a goosemaster norm for suggesting that the acf has no role or responsibilities here. who is in line for a second goosemaster norm now hey

    I thought it was simply a legal responsibilty rather than removing any association with it ... but then again I had to miss the ACF Council meeting, so the wording in the minutes and what the meeting actually decided may be two different things.

    I understand the point you're trying to make - but your response had no immediate connection to Barry's question (which is what you actually responded to). Barry simply asked if the column in question was already available in the 'Columns' link of auschess.org.au. There was no need for you to show off your know-how about liabilities between CK or ACF, etc...etc...

    Are you mistaking me for Trent now? or perhaps you have uncovered our cunning plan of swapping logins without the rest of the board noticing.

    I do not actually use the ACF link. gg's has interpreted the question correctly.

    Oh well, it doesn't mean anything in the larger scheme of things. It is a little curious but I think the ACF would want to avoid any possible legal liabilities after the Depesquale thing. Could also be that johnny on here that was threatening lawsuits *cough*

    Why aren't you subscribed to the ACF bulletin.
    That way you get it emailed to you.

    I have no idea what that line means in the bulletin.

    I never knew ACF was legally responsible..

    Apparently even linking to this BB is bad.

    Don't know how they came to that conclusion in that meeting.

    paulb has resigned.

    starter and jenni were offered position as moderator.

    starter declined due to lack of time.

    jenni has accepted and is now a moderator.
