Thibault, Congratulation to the 1000th FICGS - member !! . As far as I know chessfriend had 1900 members after 3 years. . I am quite sure that FICGS is the fastest growing chess organization on the web.

Thank you Hannes !

Yes that's great, the number of players regularly increases already, with no more announcements on chess forums (most players come from Google).

I think it will speed up at the beginning of 2007 ;)

Only 965 ?!

FICS is shrinking significantly :-) Few days ago we broke through the 1000 member barrier. And now it seems that we have lost about 40 members :-) What happend ?

Do you travel in time, Hannes ? :)

Was it a page cached by Google, your browser or.. !?

I can't explain how you see this number !?

PS : FICGS ! not FICS :)

(by the way, FICS - - seems dead for several days !? what happened ?)

I noticed it too. It was the rating list page. It's back showing over 1000 now, but it definitely was showing under 1000 players for a few days. I think it was the 1st and 2nd of this month.

About the chess rating list, I updated the code a few days ago. It is now "semi-static" (automatically updated every 6 hours at most)

6 hours, that was theory... I just found the small bug, thanks :)
