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.


 
King Shehran and Sessa ebn Daher

As the tail says there was a king in India, called Shehran, dominating on everything, but his tedium. He was bored in the morning, noon and at night, all every day, until he fell ill because of it.

Sessa ebn Daher, his court wise man, to heal the king, invented a new game, called it chess. The game was brilliant, the king has recovered from the illnes after the first game.

- What do you want as a reward? - asked Shehran.

- A few grains of wheat only: put one grain on the first square of the chessboard, then double it on the next squares - said Sessa ebn Daher.

- Humble request! - smiled the king, but finally couldn't perform it.

The number of the wheat grains was 18 trillion, 446 billiard, 744 billion, 73 milliard 709 million, 551 thousand 615, which is approximately 700 thousand million tonnes.
 
Reliability Calculation

The server calculates a reliability factor for each player according to their actions in the past few weeks.
This value is influenced by many different things, for example if their settings are correct, if they had a timeout in a game, or if they have unannounced vacations, etc.
The value is always between 0 and 10.

New players start at 3.5.
After they set up their basic settings such as the country code, gender, real name, birth year, this value goes up to 5.
If they successfully start few games and also finish them in order, without timeouts, silent vacation, the value raises around 6.
As they finish more games, and as the time goes without any problem with them, the value still raises.
Players with many months of membership and with a lot of games and without any problems can go over 9.

This may help players to find the right opponents, and may give them an approximate view about their future opponents, without personally knowing them.
Protecting serious club members, players with too low reliability (less than 5) can't enter for new tournaments.
