  The Hungarian Language Team

The task of the team is the Hungarian language support in the club.
The table below show what parts of the whole task are managed by who. They are all volunteers, who give their work and free time for Hungarian speaking players, letting them play in the club.

Since the whole task is divided into sub-tasks, the load is less on the individual contributors, so they can do it next to their everyday job and their family.

Task Contributors Enough? Vacancy?
Base Text Editors
They maintain the Hungarian texts of the server, check and correct them, and insert the new things also. The server can "speak" and "understand" in Hungarian based on their work. Requires no direct contact with the players, this is a background job.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) Yes No
Sometimes players bumping into problems they can't solve, in this case they need to ask help in Hungarian. Usually minor things are these, all common thing can be found in the documentation.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) Yes Yes
Newsletter Managers
As the server develops, players are informed about the new things by the newsletter lists. Hungarian speaking players by the Hirlevel list. Andras Galos composes the newsletter messages in Hungarian, and these messages are sent to the newsletter list by him.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) Yes No
Website Maintainers
Hungarian version of these pages is maintained by them. Somethimes this and that change, and they upload the new things in German. They have access to the Content Manager interface of the website and can modify the Hungarian pages. Some html knowledge is useful, but it's also learnable, not a big thing.
Galos, Andras (GalosA) Yes No
Forum Moderators
They keep their eyes on the Hungarian speaking forums, and keep contact with the foruming players, answer their questions, etc. This sub-task requires some more online presence, especially if the forum traffic grows. Some forum knowledge is useful here, but these can also be learned.

Fulop, Gabor (Gambit)
Yes Yes

A language support thougth safe if two contributors are for each sub-task. They help each other also, and, if something happens with one of them, the others can take that job temporarly.
Starting supporting a new language is best if the two-two contributors are given.

If you feel you can shoulder one or more of the above tasks, then contact us!

There is a mailing list for the Hungarian Language Team, where they can talk each other, can talk about technical things too, so they can do anything that is important for the successfull work of the team.

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.

The game is the most exciting, when the two players are on the same playing strength. If the difference is too high between their strength, then one player will see the same game boring, that the other will see annihilating.
The playing strength are defined by the elo rating, its value is usually between 800 and 2600 points. Players are divided into different classes according to their playing strength, their elo rating. Players in the same class are in similar playing level.
Tournaments are usually class based, so players in the same level play each other in tournaments (mostly).
The following classes are defined in the club:

Class M 2200-
Class X 2000-2199
Class A 1800-1999
Class B 1600-1799
Class C 1400-1599
Class D 1200-1399
Class E 1000-1199
Class F 000-999
