The content and status of the team
  The Italian Language Team


The task of the team is the Italian language support in the club.
The table below shows what parts of the whole task are managed by who. They are all volunteers, who give their work and free time for Italian 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 Italian texts of the server, check and correct them, and insert the new things also. The server can "speak" and "understand" in Italian based on their work. Requires no direct contact with the players, this is a background job.
Cuomo, Salvatore (libertango) No Yes
Supporters
Sometimes players bumping into problems they can't solve, in this case they need to ask help in Italian. Usually minor things are these, all common thing can be found in the documentation.
- No Yes
Newsletter Managers
As the server develops, players are informed about the new things by the newsletter lists.
- No Yes
Website Maintainers
Italian version of these pages is maintained by them. Somethimes this and that change, and they upload the new things in Italian. They have access to the Content Manager interface of the website and can modify the Italian pages. Some html knowledge is useful, but it's also learnable, not a big thing.
Cuomo, Salvatore (libertango) No Yes
Forum Moderators
They keep their eyes on the Italian 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 Italian 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.


 
Wilhelm Steinitz

SteinitzBorn in 1836 in Prague, world champion between 1866 and 1894.
He laid down the base of positional game, therefore he is known as the founder of the modern chess. No doubt, Steinitz has opened a new chapter in the history of the game. Because of his careness, efforts for the economical play, the great attackers of his age (Chigorin, Gunsberg) have lost in order. His approach was not appreciated by the age he lived in. Players didn't take too much care of the pawn, the structure of the game, opposing to Steinitz, who probably took too much care of these.
On the first official world championship, in 1886 in New York and in St. Luis, Steinitz played 10:5 with 5 draws against the Polish Johannes Hermann Zukertort. He defended his title against Isidor Gunsberg, and twice against Mihail Chigorin too. Then lost it in 1894 against Emanuel Lasker in the final.
Finished his life in 1900 in New York in a mental hospital.
 
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.
