Volunteers are welcome to contribute in the development and management of the club. Some volunteer help is needed in the following fields:
  • Webmaster: the website design is more than proper now, some more improvement or new ideas are welcome.
  • Content manager: You can read the Stories page, and several interesting things on it from here and there. From the Internet or from books, or else. If you know interesting things from the world of chess, you can share your knowledge with the visitors of these pages, giving them good moments reading your articles. If you are interested you can get access to the admin surface and can manage the Stories area, and you can insert new articles and you can completely manage that area. Access to the Picture Library can be also necesarry to upload photos or other pictures to your articles (like the Al-Adli picture on the Al-Adli article).
    Then, your articles will automatically come up on many pages of this site on the right, in green boxes, like on this page, giving the visitors interesting information about chess related things.

ELO Rating

Muscler An ELO rating is the result of statistical calculations designed to measure the playing strength of players. These methods were developed by Arpad Elo and are named after him. The ELO system is in almost universal use and has been further refined by others, notably Glicko, but is still named after its creator.

In devising the ELO scale, some premises were used that are worthy of note. It was decided that a rating of 2000 would be the equivalent to scoring 50% in a US Open Championship. It was also decided that a player's rating would never be negative.

Importantly, the standard deviation was fixed at 200 points. This means that if a player's true strength is 1500, he will score around 68% of his results within the range of 1400 to 1600 (as measured by performance formulae). Another result of fixing the standard deviation at 200 points is that it also defines playing categories. For example, most International Masters and Grandmasters are in the 2400 - 2600 category, most national masters in the 2200 - 2400 category. Those in the 2000 - 2200 category are called Experts, or Candidate Masters.
