  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
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.

My favourite chess problem

Many years ago, searching for the Internet over chess problem, I bumped into a very interesting piece.
Find it on the bottom as a FEN row, clicking on it the board will also appear.

The task is: white mates in one!

Can't be too hard, I thought, but scrolling over the possibilities the solution just didn't come up.
I check everything once more, then again, and again, and once I found another way that was hidden for me before. The solution also hid there. It became my favourite chess problem then, but of course, it's true, there are many many beautiful problems out there.


This was the first problem I submitted to the server. Some players can solve it, some don't. Some believe there is no valid solution.
So, check this problem if you want. And enjoy.
Fifty Moves Repetition Rule

According to the official rule of the game, draw can be claimed if the last setup occurs third or more times, or there were no pawn moves and captures during the last 50-50 moves.
To claim draw write two equal signs at the end of your move.

This feature has been created to be in accordance with the official FIDE rules.
