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.

Arpad Emrick Elo

ArpadElo The ELO system for rating chessplayers was named after its originator, Arpad Elo. Born in 1903, Elo emigrated to the USA when he was 10. Educated at Chicago University, he later became professor of physics at Marquette University, Milwaukee. He learned to play chess in his teens and played in a number of tournaments. He was champion or co-champion of Wisconsin 9 times between 1935 and 1961. He was active in the USCF (United States Chess Federation) from its founding in 1939. He spent 20 years developing and validating his chess rating system, which was adopted by FIDE in 1970 for international use.
His book 'The Rating of Chessplayers, Past and Present' was published in 1978 and is the definitive reference on the ELO rating system. Most chess organisations that perform ratings for players use the ELO system, or a variation of it.
