Thanks


I want to say 'thank you' to those who have helped in the past or are currently helping me to keep this small club up and running.

hungflagFirst of all thanks to my family for their tolerance, and their sacrifice if I sometimes spend more time with this hobby than with them.

scotflagThanks to Eddie Boyd from Scotland for his volunteer webmaster work. With his help the site looks much better than before. He also corrects my English and helps to keep the pages consistent.

hungflagThanks to Gergo Macsi from Hungary, who created the first chess piece set at the very beginning.

surnflagThanks to Henk Chang from Suriname, who has helped me a lot maintaining the English speaking interface of the server, who has checked and corrected my poor English, and helped me to plan the next improvements with his great correspondence chess experience.

usaflagThanks to Michael Keating for making freely available the MyChessViewer Java application that handles the games of tournaments on the Events page.

hungflagThanks to Pal Benyovszki from Hungary. He works on the German translations of the server. This will let German speaking players to enter and play in the club. He is the first member of the German Language Team.

And to all the players who help my work with criticisms and suggestions.

I welcome every help players can shoulder. I've written a separate page dealing with this, the Volunteering page.

Scoring

In competitive chess, a player scores one point for a win, a half-point for a draw, and zero points for a loss. So the rankings at the end of a tournament are easy to calculate by simple addition.

In the early 19th century, when modern competitive play began, draws were ignored, and a match was won by the player who first scored an agreed number of wins, or who had the most wins after an agreed number of games. With the advent of all-play-all tournaments (the first international all-play-all was held in London in 1851) draws became more important. At first, rules were devised to discourage draws, which were very unpopular with the chess public, but gradually these were dropped and draws were counted as a half-point.
