  The German Language Team


The task of the team is the German 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 Gernan 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 german texts of the server, check and correct them, and insert the new things also. The server can "speak" and "understand" in german based on their work. Requires no direct contact with the players, this is a background job.
Benyovszki, Pal (paya0411)
Fuhrmann, Jens (JoeLag)

Supporters
Sometimes players bump into problems they can't solve, in this case they need to ask help in German. Usually minor things are these, all common thing can be found in the documentation.
Barna, Tamas (Maci) No Yes
Newsletter Managers
As the server develops, players are informed about the new things by the newsletter lists. German speaking players by the Rundschreiben list. Andras Galos composes the newsletter message in English (and in Hungarian), and these messages are translated into German and sent out by the Newsletter Managers. The list is writeable by them only, players subscribe to it to be informed about the new things.
Benyovszki, Pal (paya0411) Yes Yes
Website Maintainers
German version of these pages is maintained by them. Somethimes this and that change, and they upload the new things in German. They have access to the Content Manager interface of the website and can modify the German pages. Some html knowledge is useful, but it's also learnable, not a big thing.
Benyovszki, Pal (paya0411)
Fuhrmann, Jens (JoeLag)
Yes Yes
Forum Moderators
They keep their eyes on the German 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.
- No Yes

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 German 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.



 
Al-Adli

Al-Adli About 800 years after the birth of Christ, chess was well known in the Arabic World. Al-Adli was the greatest known player of that age until 847. He was the closest friend of the caliph, a poet, and a minister-like official.
The game was a bit different than the modern chess we know. The initial setup was the same, as well as the king, the knight and the rook. The queen was the weakest piece because it could move one square and in diagonals only. Bishop moved in diagonals, but only two sqares, and could jump over pieces, didn't attack and didn't defend the nearest four squares. Pawns could move one step only and there was neider castling.
 
Chess via Cellular Phones

Nowadays more of us read our emails on our cellular phone, send email as SMS and receive email in SMS.
Then can we play correspondence chess here in SMS?
Yes, more players play on their mobile phones. They get an SMS when their opponents take moves and send in their moves in SMS too.
Why not?
Although receiving SMSes all the day can be annoying, the digest mode helps in this case.
