So when I choose NEW POSTS, can I set up a profile somewhere which ignores, for me, those new parts of the FORUM index that relate to BRIDGE.

In light of all these comments about users having no manners, especially those who are supposed to be 'respectable in person' I would like to propose the following: that non-chess be officially unmoderated, where you can say whatever the hell you like and it be kept separate from the chess section, where people can get some proper and decent answers to their questions without being mouthed off at like we've seen.

i again will state that an unmoderated section is a very bad idea. One of the reasons is such:

Someone sets up a thread that criticises another person or their posting style. As we have seen on here already, things go into the gutter pretty quickly. I dont think a unmoderated section will help this board as being taken anywhere near serious as a forum for australian chess ppl to get access to ppl in charge.

Actually now i think about it, i might start another thread in the australian chess section, stay tuned
:uhoh:

Alan Shore
29-08-2004, 07:43 PM

OK, cool. I mean all that's required is a sticky in the section with the disclaimer that the section isn't moderated and it should be fine. Then if people want to erupt into flamewars they can do so there, quite candidly, preserving the sanctity of the chess section, where officials can behave respectably.

I think Kevin is on side.. Barry? Jenni? What do you think?

speaking of forum feedback ... (and chess too) ...

is one able to stop pgn-viewers and pgn downloading?

can one pick and choose the games you want to view or download?

can one select or reference games to an alternative pgn viewer?

can the chesschat pgn viewer be made into a stand alone module?

can games of interest be uploaded to a central chesschat directory for easy access?

is it just my browser and dialup connection which discourages me from looking at for instance the "slow loading barbeque"*?

*[this thread makes my computer freeze up]

then again it's best we not encourage the excessive submission of games lest chesschat crashes !!

yes, threads with excessive embedded games will do that to slower computers.

chesschat can't crash from excessive games, only your computer can, since it is a client side javascript viewer.

hi Jeo

Ring-A Rosie is not known to me. But the evidence suggests that he/she has been watching the BB for 5-6 months at least. RAR asks what seems to be an innocent question (via a post) about the names of players coming from the Phillipines. I thought you might have been glad of the extra registration by RAR. But no, down comes the discipline scimitar and the post is consigned to the cutting room floor. Not a word from the scimitar wielder as to the crime. And the crime?...a forbidden thread. And the alternate threads?....locked.
Instead, you could have started a new thread and transferred the post there.

Are you pulling my leg?
RAR is a first-time poster.
He/She dials in and reads post #34 (on page #3) of a thread on Mt Buller. He/She thinks, "I have a simple question in regard to post #34 and so posts #35" by using the REPLY Button that is sitting right there in front of Her/Him.
At no stage would RAR have noticed that three pages back on post #1 that there was advice not to use the REPLY button on this thread.

Along comes the ADMIN. and just deletes RAR's post #35 without advising RAR of the protocol, nor moving the post to a new thread.

Well JOE, I can't explain your question. Any more than I could convince you in January when we exchanged private mails on the same topic.
Sure, I frequently post from 3PCs; home (dial-up), work (WAN/LAN..hot-desk); and the Club (private server somewhere). I leave sessions open at each venue rather than log-out. Only the dial-up is secure and that is where this post is coming from. I have posted from all three this week-end.
Members at BHCC frequently use the Club PC. Members at work (the PUNTERS Club) frequently use the hot-desk.
I access three mail-systems from work; OUTLOOK, LOTUS Notes, and OUTLOOK Express. I access multiple mail-boxes in addition; including hot-mail and Yahoo.

MS: OH! so you have given up on mod power. Good on you - you just went up hugely in my estimation. In fact, I might have to start defending you :-)

K: "Technically I still have the power, I choose not to use it."



Since then, graygray was banned, and now K is snooping around looking at IP addresses. K is not a benign dictator, but an unreliable host.

The point is if you are going to use the word banned you need to qualify it.

After all if you are going to stick to Jeo's words he said "banned from a thread".
As such if you are going to bandy about the word banned you need to qualify it.
So far you have failed to do so.

I did not ban anyone from a thread, I banned Garvin from Coffee Lounge, because he basically does not want access. And I have only started checking ID's after a certain previous member was banned.

His lack of access to the Lounge isnt an issue for him.

The current issue seems to revolve around 3 accounts all having starters email address and all the IP's matching the IP addresses he uses.

If Thunk and Commentator want to log on and share machines with starter at Box Hill or his work then let them setup their own accounts with there own email addresses.

Ooooh, dem's fightin' words. Let me at least defend myself on the "sense of humour" front:

My "sense of humour" is offended when I believe that the powers that be are targeting someone unfairly (i.e. starter). I don't find that funny at all.

Beyond that, I read some pretty extreme stuff written by AC (from my perspective anyway) and I take it in good humour and even have a poke back at him from time to time.


... (before he finds out what I wrote about him in the +200 club).

:eek: Fortunately I'm not particularly concerned with what people say behind closed doors in elitist "secret squirrel" clubs. Somehow I imagine that its just more of the same invective that gets thrown around out here ... only more concentrated.

If you've got something to say about me, constructive or otherwise, why not say it in a public forum like the rest of us mere mortals have to?

As for my previous comments about chess in Australia being in a bl**dy great mess, that was over the top and I withdraw those comments unreservedly.

Instead, I would like to replace them with some questions:

Q1: How does Australia compare to other western culture nations (e.g. the Americas, Europe, etc) in terms of:

1. Junior chess participation rate (per head of population)
2. Adult chess participation rate (per head of population)
3. Number of grandmasters (per active chess participant)

Q2: What are our junior and adult participation rates now compared to 10 or 20 years ago ... are we "winning" or "losing" the battle.

I wasn't aware that we had a no-hydras policy here and I don't think 3 warning points just for nitpicking about word usage over Garvin's removal from the Coffee Lounge is proportionate. It was always obvious to me that FC was Matthew and I'm still sceptical that tHUNK and Commentator are starter. It would help the rest of us if starter made an explicit and unequivocal public comment on this one though, and I think by not doing so he is bringing it on himself to a degree.

I also can't really comment on the coffee lounge in an informed manner having no access to it and having never read it but none of the indirect aromas I get from it smell anything like roasted coffee beans. :rolleyes: The forum voted against adding an unmoderated forum (I voted for, more fool me) so I was surprised when it was added.

Looking at the number of posters, there are only 29 with over 200 posts. As I understand it, some of these 29 have either had their account disabled (eg Scott Colliver) or have been banned/excluded from the "Coffee Lounge" (eg ggrayggray, Starter) or are Admins (eg Kevin, Barry, Jenni) and are unable to view/post on the exclusive "Coffee Lounge" forum!

So, how about making it accessible to the Admins - the more people who can post on the "Coffee Lounge" the better! Also, why not make the "Coffee Lounge" accessible to those with over 100 posts (instead of over 200)?

JGB
01-12-2004, 10:18 PM
I have no probs with allowing admins to also post in the coffee lounge. But as to having posters with 100 or 200 posts, that won't really make the slightest difference. How many people sit between 100 and 200 for long?
Almost all posts in these forums are posted by the people with over 100 posts. Actually if you look at the stats, i'm pretty sure that 10 people make up for about 50% of all posts around here and 25 people probably make up for 90% of all that is said. Please don't quote me on these figures. :D

It has to be moderated in some form. Any internet site has for legal reasons a 'responsible person'. If someone were to post something illegal, the responsible person is just that; responsible. Anyone who has set up a private internet site knows that, unless the laws are different in Australia (but I am sure they are not).

Let's say IF the Lounge is unmoderated, it is a case of trust by K of the +200. That level of trust must be repayed with absolute propriety.

K and others act like facist pigs out here in the main board because they have to. I think that in the main, that they display a puretant over zealous discharge of their duties and their penises

My "sense of humour" is offended when I believe that the powers that be are targeting someone unfairly (i.e. starter). I don't find that funny at all. This is not an official ACF board. All 'humour' aside, in the case of starter, my own opinion is that Jeo has been more than reasonable under the circumstances (and I'm not convinced you know the full story), not least because he is ultimately liable for defamation.


Beyond that, I read some pretty extreme stuff written by AC (from my perspective anyway) and I take it in good humour and even have a poke back at him from time to time.
Accepted, but please note that you are expected to flame the BB's resident idiot every time you engage him.


If you've got something to say about me, constructive or otherwise, why not say it in a public forum like the rest of us mere mortals have to? I just did, but I acknowledge the gutlessness of making a smart-arse comment in the restricted lounge and I regret that.


As for my previous comments about chess in Australia being in a bl**dy great mess, that was over the top and I withdraw those comments unreservedly.

Instead, I would like to replace them with some questions:

Q1: How does Australia compare to other western culture nations (e.g. the Americas, Europe, etc) in terms of:

1. Junior chess participation rate (per head of population)
2. Adult chess participation rate (per head of population)
3. Number of grandmasters (per active chess participant)

Q2: What are our junior and adult participation rates now compared to 10 or 20 years ago ... are we "winning" or "losing" the battle.

All good questions, and not so easily answered.

All 'humour' aside, in the case of starter, my own opinion is that Jeo has been more than reasonable under the circumstances (and I'm not convinced you know the full story), not least because he is ultimately liable for defamation.

I think that Jeo is in a bit of an awkward position, because of the fact that he donates hours of his time (and likely his $$$ as well) to keep the board in a state of constant improvement. For those things he should be publicly thanked on a regular basis, as donating one's time and $$$ is usually a thankless task.

So Jeo: "thanks" from me! :clap:

But I also believe that people who have a lot invested in something can sometimes tend to be overprotective of "their baby". This might only show itself at odd moments, when there are significant pressures brought to bear and many of those pressures might have nothing to do with the board itself.

I felt that banning the additional 'starter' accounts was unnecessary. So I guess we all have our opinions.

I readily concede that my concerns might be magnified by the fact that I know 'starter' (I'm now a member at his club) and respect him immensely for what he and his team at Box Hill have achieved. I think there are a lot of lessons to be learned from that club and I don't want to see a situation develop where 'starter' gets ticked off and ceases to be communicative about what he sees as 'important success factors in chess administration'.

I also concede that I don't know all the facts of the situation ... only Jeo and Starter would be able to articulate that and it seems they aren't saying much about it now.


... I acknowledge the gutlessness of making a smart-arse comment in the restricted lounge and I regret that.

The comment might have been 'gutless' or it might have been deserved (I may never know of course) ... but the fact that you're prepared to express regret regardless shows that you are clearly not a gutless person.

Respect.


All good questions, and not so easily answered.

I think it'd be great if we could answer them. Not so that we could either laud or pillory current strategy, but so that we could at least have a benchmark from which to measure progress, and a trend (dare I use that word???) to know if the progress is in the right direction. Then one can tweak the current strategy settings to see whether improvements can be made.

I have a few ideas on club-level 'tweaks' which I plan to try out when we launch Croydon Chess Club here in Melbourne next year. Hopefully they prove to be valuable and replicable by other clubs.

Let's say IF the Lounge is unmoderated, it is a case of trust by K of the +200. That level of trust must be repayed with absolute propriety.

K and others act like facist pigs out here in the main board because they have to. I think that in the main, that they display a puretant over zealous discharge of their duties and their penises

[Prediction: a <deleted> will appear above, proving that the word "penis" is too rude for the BB but can be used liberally on every TV and radio station.]

You did not use the word 'consider' in the shout. You used the word 'admit'. A word that carries the connotation of accusation.

I can only acknowledge what I see. If have seen no post that shows annoyance at metrics in my signature line.

This should not be confused with Bill's post in the CORRUS tournament where he asked for the competitive index not to appear in posts in that thread. He made no mention of the CI in the signature line. In fact I can't recall the CI being in the sig. line ever...but wouldn't swear to it.

My sig.line changed just after you introduced premium membership.This statement would appear to be debatable.

It appears K first mentioned premium membership back on the 20/02/05 at 10.05pm in the shoutbox.
However on 22/02/05 at 11.11am your sig line still read:
a/c=811, TCN=768, delta=43..8.10 /052
In an amazing burst of speed a/c has inreased the differential from 7 to 43 in 3 days. The stewards have intervened and a/c has been banned. The Punters Club changes to a bet on one of three outcomes > the MOD takes advantage of the other MODS action >> a/c leaves >>> in 5 moves, Caketin wins

The difference of around 37hrs is hardly what anyone would call "just after".

That is a fair enough question on your part.
However, if you go back to an earlier post you will see that I was unsure of just when the premium stuff started (or became visible at least); and I acknowledged that. And I think I 100% sure I changed my sig.line as reaction to the premium ploy. Those words about price and demand have been there for days.
So, I agree 37 hours (or even more) is hardly 'just after'; and I wish now I had phrased as "as a consequence".
But it doesn't change the motive I had at the time. It just shows that I didn't anticipate a forensic examination by you and K. about sig. line changes.

i think it is fine for increasing availabilities for premium memberships, but not ok to decrease options/availabilities for those who arent premium members.

Why not just take away all privileges and bring in a user pays system:

Ability to shout - $10
Ability to post - $20
PM Storage - $1 per message
Who's Online - $100

etc.

Because i'm currently not working and cannot really afford to donate $25 at the moment. But once i've settled in to a job i will donate.

What's your excuse?

I am not paying a cent to an admin whom I cannot trust and have no respect for. Otherwise I would be happy to contribute.

How do I find out box in private message compartment?

Alan Shore

Um, wtf? I have 280 messages in Private messages and now it says Max 50? Does that mean I can't receive new messages? Does this mean I will have to go back and manually sort out what I need to keep? If the answer is Yes to either of those questions I'm going to be pissed.

And, what's with reducing the attachment quota? It's nearly all used up for me... How am I supposed to keep my picture thread going?

It's all very well to make your Premium Member thing have extra features but why the hell are you punishing the other members of this site, particularly those who have really supported it for so long. :wall:

Possibly. Don't have much time lately (moving stuff into sydney Equinix and that's draining my time like anything).

Infact I am going to get someone else to admin, probably. (Gandalf busy with his new medicine course @ uni)

Matt has proven ADMIN capability. ;) :D
Maybe you could look to him to take over?

You would have to know what the ADMIN does before you know if someone has ADMIN capability or not.

Now there is a tempting statement that invites mischievous speculation.
But, I think I will just leave it in your capable hands to decide on your successor.
Can't be a/c though.....I think he is aiming for higher office.

Hey Baz, here you were p.ssing and f.rting the other day with indignation about my transfers and I did not even know about it as too busy to access board. That song about getting what you want or need is wrong!

I will and won't get it if I get barred. I presume that I can post Bill's non-coffee lounge posts about Matt over there? I earnt my third "complete idiot" norm from Bill over this issue.

Anything is posted on the general access part of the board you are free to use in the usual way. If you feel it necessary to copy Bill's posts from there then I will not take punitive action.

It is necessary in the strategy that in the long run Bill knows that they are going to be posted over there anyway so may as well do it himself. Then we will all get peace.

What's with that stupid ad above the shout area? Remove it immediately. It's annoying. We're all savvy enough to look for that stuff in T&R.

Well if they paid money that Adelaide mob - then they are very silly indeed!

In any case, I'm so turned off by it. I wonder if our paid-up members have any say on their browsing experience. Prolly not.
