Playing chess in the club continues via email.

Some of the players in the club uses the graphical format below to receive their opponents' moves. Others use plain text messages, others use PGN.

This page is for those who use the html message format, instead of plain text and PGN. (These settings can be changed anytime by the players). For players using the html format, the server generates the changed game diagram after each move in html format.
Using an html compliant email client or web service is necessary to use this feature. All the modern email clients support displaying standard html messages. Players who use an email client that doesn't support html message format won't be able to use this feature. They receive their opponents' moves, or whole games in plain text or in PGN format instead of the graphical boards. They may need a different software to display the boards. For example ECTool is a right software for them.

Players can choose which piece set they want to use in their graphical boards generated by the chess server.

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.
 
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.
