    I feel this doubly, as I don't have a strong party affiliation. A majority of my votes since turning 18 have been Liberal, but I think that's more because of them being centrist than me particularly...

    I've been sad to see the increased partisanship and loss of constructive opposition. It seemed to start in the USA but it's definitely spread to Canada.

    IIRC National Chess Week never even got to the point of asking for volunteers, it never really got past bickering over what dates would/wouldn't work for people. I haven't thought about it much as to...

    I'd use it to switch the Closed and Women's Closed to a proper invitational round robin if you want to develop the higher levels. Maybe run the Junior at the same time.

    To develop chess as a...

    How many played in the Canadian Open without a membership?

    Just a general thought, with 8 hours left in the voting period... 37 members of the incoming assembly have signed in, but only 23-24 of them have voted on anything which is a little disappointing,...

    Larry was offering 2-year-old (one version number) versions of Fritz for a big discount earlier, you could contact him to see if he has any left. Alternatively, Fritz 15 (the current version is 16)...

    This is exactly right. The more that the Canadian "bubble" interacts with the rest of the FIDE rating pool, the more accurate the ratings will be.

    I do wonder if the increase in the number of...

    Very few 14-year-olds would have that kind of opening knowledge without also being quite strong otherwise. I guess the interesting argument would be, would a weak master-level player of today be able...

    I wasn't asking for one to step forward, I was lamenting the state of the FIDE elections for at least the last 10 years, maybe longer.
  11. My only comment at this point is why is it too...

    My only comment at this point is why is it too much to ask for a candidate who doesn't have baggage or a major flaw? This is not some little tiny operation, this is a major international sporting...

    Figures, the limit was 5,000,000 for PDFs. I upped it to 10M.

    CFC Elections 2018

    Who's running? Will there be any actual votes this year?

    I'm willing to be on the NAC again (I notice the CFC site was never updated from last year's AGM - oops? http://chess.ca/cfc-committees )....

    I can fix it, what type of file is it? By default it only allows small files to be attached but those defaults are from ancient times with tiny hard drives.

    I find the biggest advantage of the Scandinavian at club level is that not everyone is very familiar with it and while I may lose time on the board, on the clocks it tends to be a big advantage. The...

    Either that or you have a mortgage or some other investment? I know with RBC having a mortgage and a TFSA with them means no monthly service fee on the chequing account. Doesn't seem to matter how...

    Well, I was referring to Chesstalk needing an off-topic lounge. Would it help here? I think you'd need more on-topic first lol.


    Fred's posts were probably best as a blog rather than forum posts.

    What thread display mode do you use? Linear, Threaded or Hybrid?

    OK the FEN display may be broken. I'll see if I can fix it in the next day or so.

    The CFC needs a new website. Pretty soon they will badly need a new website. There was a suggestion at the time that the CFC should actually put away $1-2k per year to save towards a new website. I'm...

    I don't know if they changed it when they upgraded to vB 5, but what I wrote is how Rep Power worked on Chesstalk up to a month or so ago. The top level for Rep Power was originally "Infamous" and...

    1. I never mentioned viruses? This forum has been hacked twice as well, though as far as I know we caught both in time before any viruses were installed. Sadly, they don't even get hacked by actual...

    It doesn't take much to get to critical mass... perhaps as little as 10 people posting regularly, assuming what they post is of interest to others.

    When we started the board we had a rule for the...

    It's strictly an indication of number of posts. Rep Power is an indication of quality of posts, as voted by other members of the forum. So you can "upvote" a post, for example, and the poster earns...

    My best advice for having problems with IE is switch to Chrome or Firefox. Nobody (not even Microsoft) knows quite why IE does things sometimes.
