    Michael

    I don't think it would be a good idea to modify the eligibility requirement, and instead simply be prepared to make no awards for 20/21.

    This is not my preference, as I agree with you, but offered up as a compromise if there is too much opposition to the status quo.

    Chess.com / Lichess.org make very little money off of people who just want to come and play chess. Money is made from teaching and viewing GM play.

    Martin Jaeger, RIP

    I just had a phone call from Wilf Ferner, former CFC Executive member, passing on the sad news that former CFC President, Martin Jaeger (Toronto) passed away this morning. His obituary will be in the...

    Reading between the lines, I think Nikolay is asking whether more than one person reviewed the voting. When we held in-person meetings there would always be two people counting the votes.

    Now that I don't agree with. Some people might wonder how you know that. If you can see who voted, then that information should be public.

    I'm not so sure that having the results of the voting available while the election is going on is the best way of doing business, but in a sense it mirrors Federal elections. However campaigning...
