I am trying to get in the groove of wikichess. but I have to admit I am a bit lost as the way of going about it...

Follow the lines :-)

Hello Amir.

You just have to follow the lines clicking on the moves... If you want to create a new line, enter the new move (submit) then enter a text for that move (submit) : The article is created.

Wikichess : Modifiability

Why are some lines not modifiable? Are they beyond criticism?

Wikichess : Modifiability

Hello Dirk Jan.

It's not possible to modify a comment made by a stronger player (> +100 points ELO) in order to maintain a kind of "trust level"...

Anyway, chess game is still large enough for everyone ;)

A thousand moves !

More than a thousand moves in Wikichess...

Thanks to Dirk Jan (very active already ;)) and to all contributors.

What is wrong with 4 ... Nf6 after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Ba4? Regards, D.J. van Dijl

Error 2?

Hello there! After 1 e4 c5 2 Nf3 d6 3 d4 cxd4 4 Nxd4 Nf6 5 Nc3 a6 6 Bc4 e6 7 0-0 the program allows castling by Black, but the black Bishop is still at f8. All the best! Dick van Dijl

Wikichess : Improvement

The main page now displays the last 20 lines created (instead of moves). It should allow us to discuss lines in an easier way.. :)

Indeed, moves are free, but not necessarily the comments, question marks, exclamation marks etc.

edit article

I'd like to insert a few comments on the French Winaver variation. For example after e4 e6, d4 d5, Nc3 Bb4. Prsently the whole comment is: " ============ Contributors : Toncho Tenev " I see that Tenev has a mich higher rating than me. Only he did not say anything on this line. And I can not modify this non existent article!? - This is not in the spirit of quality assurance.

!!! that's very relevant :)

It will be changed in one hour. Thanks !

Trouble adding lines

I am trying to add articles to wikichess and most of the time it works fine. But for some reason I cannot add some moves. One example, both knights can move to the same square so I tried Nb d2, b1 d2, Nb1 d2, and several others but to no avail. I also could not get e4xd5 to work before either (as well as PxP etc). Any help informing me of the correct way would be appreciated.

Mark Carroll    (2006-08-01 02:03:15)
correct form and copywrite

I figured it out, I needed to eliminate the spaces thus Nbxd2. One more question, with my understanding of copywrite laws, if we went through very old books we could enter the analysis without any violation of copywrite, just stick the source in. Right?

Thibault de Vassal    (2006-08-01 11:52:23)
PGN format

Hello Mark.

The correct move was Nbd2 ... "1" is useless in Nb1d2, as "b" is enough to know what knight is moving. If the knight had taken a piece, the notation would have been Nbxd2 ...

I suggest you to familiarize with PGN format (Portable Game Notation). You can check the link below.

The best way is to look at many PGN games...
