  Statistics


To show the number of players in the club, their activity, you can find some statistical values here:

Type Value
Number of active players: 94
Number of running games: 81
Number of moves yesterday: 81
All incoming email messages: 4108439
All outgoing email messages: 6395947

A player becomes inactive if he/she is not playing in any game, does not have a pairing request, and sent his/her last message to the server more than 100 days ago. At this point he/she is temporarily removed from the players list, inactive players do not count into the above value.

Running games are those which have both players, have already started, but still didn't finish, so which are currently in progress.

Yesterday's moves are those which were taken from yesterday 00:00 until today 00:00 GMT.

All incoming messages are those, which were sent by the club members to the server from somewhere the beginning of 2002.

Outgoing messages were sent by the server to the players, also from around the beginning of 2002.

If you like to play chess, playing many games simultaneously, if you like to think your moves when you have time, and it doesn't bother you if your games last several weeks, then you are welcome to join the club.

And here you can find some rather interesting than important statistics about pieces' activity in all the games since Jan 17, 2003:

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.
 
Digest Mode

Since we can have many simultaneous games here, moves of our opponents' usually come all the day, sometimes disturbing us in our regular work, in having time with our family or else.

The digest mode tries to solve this problem: the moves will not be sent to us immediately, but will be put into our queue instead. Then the queued messages will be sent out at the given one or more hours of the day in one message.

This way we can set, for example, that no message from the server of the club will disturb us during the day, but later, all the today's moves will come in one digest message.
