  The English Language Team

The task of the team is the English language support in the club.
The table below show what parts of the whole task are managed by who. They are all volunteers, who give their work and free time for English speaking players, letting them play in the club.

Since the whole task is divided into sub-tasks, the load is less on the individual contributors, so they can do it next to their everyday job and their family.

Task Contributors Enough? Vacancy?
Base Text Editors
They maintain the English texts of the server. Andras Galos writes the new things, and the others check and correct them. Requires no direct contact with the players, this is a background job. A native English checker would be nice here.

Sometimes players bumping into problems they can't solve, in this case they need to ask help in English. Usually minor things are these, all common thing can be found in the documentation.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) Yes Yes
Newsletter Managers
As the server develops, players are informed about the new things by the newsletter lists. English speaking players by the Newsletter list. Andras Galos composes the newsletter message in English (and in Hungarian), and these messages are checked by the Newsletter Managers and sent to the Newsletter. Native English would be nice here.

Hassim, Unes (Max)
Yes Yes
Website Maintainers
These pages are maintained by them. Somethimes this and that change and new things come. Andras Galos writes the things on the pages, but it's better to correct his English by a native speaker.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) No Yes
Forum Moderators
They keep their eyes on the English speaking forums, and keep contact with the foruming players, answer their questions, etc. This sub-task requires some more online presence, especially if the forum traffic grows. Some forum knowledge is useful here, but these can also be learned.

A language support thougth safe if two contributors are for each sub-task. They help each other also, and, if something happens with one of them, the others can take that job temporarly.
Starting supporting a new language is best if the two-two contributors are given.

If you feel you can shoulder one or more of the above tasks, then contact us!

There is a mailing list for the English Language Team, where they can talk each other, can talk about technical things too, so they can do anything that is important for the successfull work of the team.


Mendeleev Dmitriy Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834-1907) is best known for devising the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements.

He loved to play chess, among other games, and correspondence chess too. A beautiful but hard chess problem follows from him from July 4, 1889, white mates in two:

1Rr1N3/3p2PK/8/8 w - - 0 1

White mates in two!

It's easy to find opponents here by pairing. Players can request pairing for one game, or that the server should search for opponents until she plays less than the given number of games.
This last one is the automatic pairing.
By default those players will be paired, who's ratings are closer than 100 elo points, and has never, or more than 90 days ago they played.
These parameters can be customizes, if, for example, somebody wants rather stronger or weaker players.
