Just curious as to when this was starting, August 1st maybe?

Do you mean the very first stages, or when the next stages begin for those who have already qualified and are waiting for their next higher qualification group to start?

The very first stages of the one that was going to start july 1st

I registerd yesterday for FICGS__CHESS__WORLD_CHAMPIONSHIP__000012 and my name is on the table. Strange.

Me too, maybe he has to fill a section or something.

Hi all, unfortunately there was no spots available for all players in the replacements list (who registered after july 1st)... Joerg now plays but Scott doesn't. Moreover, no new groups can be built this time. The good point is that we did not have many forfeits.

That's fine Thib, I entered late. Please take my name off the list so I don't have to worry about it.

On another subject, but still Wch. I saw in the round robin final that Kamesh was entered. I don't think he has played a game on here in about 2 years. He made it clear to all of us that he was quitting online chess because of his 2 new kids. My point is this, the final RR just takes too long to reach. My suggestion: Have a single qualifying swiss tournament. The top eight players then can have a final RR to determine the winner. Have an entry fee, this will eliminate Most of the looky-loos and forfeits. I think quality, not quantity is more important.

I agree with you Scott.

Yes, there will be a replacement for Kamesh very soon!

How do you organize swiss tournaments at correspondence time controls?

Well, the original idea was to give a chance to everyone (including to climb the elo scale)...

Garvin Gray    (2013-08-06 17:51:39)

It is not a reasonable proposition to organise a swiss event with a time control of 30 days plus 1 day increment.

As the second round can not start until the last game of the first round is finished, it is almost certain that we would be playing one round per year :o

Scott Nichols    (2013-08-07 21:21:54)

It could be done easy, just like wbccc. Get rid of the increments and limit games to 25 days which is more than enough. But as the saying goes, "you can't teach an old dog new tricks." Thib is hardly ever here since he started that other project, but it doesn't matter. This site just kind of runs itself. I doubt if it will grow though, what you see is what you get.

what is Thib's new project?

Thibault de Vassal    (2013-08-27 13:10:01)

I have so many other projects... particularly during the summer. But none of them is the reason why FICGS doesn't evolve or doesn't get new players enough.
