Re: 4NCL Game Score Sheets

I have recently moved to Hampshire and find I no longer have any room for these score sheets. However, there is some good news - I now have a car and can deliver them to someone close by, or relatively close to the A3, as I use this road to go to work. Please PM me asap if you want them, as the dust...

No, he doesn't - however Philip Nižetić does exist.

I don't know any reason why his name should not be spelt correctly in the ECF Grading List, like mine is.

4NCL Game Score Sheets

I have boxes of 4NCL score sheets from when I entered the games around 2004/5/6 I think. They refer to all 4 divisions. There are neatly packed in water proof plastic Kleeneze catalogue bags in Plastic Boxes, but not yet labelled. Over the next few months I will be clearing out these boxes and wish ...

If we have a bad apple in our midst, surely it is better to out him/her to everyone, so that he/she is no longer able to profit from chess any more.

You just don't understand how the world works. Scammers are able to hide behind people like you who are too scared to allow the truth to get out.

Re: Ho-Hum

1) A person's arrest for an offence does not, in and of itself, mean he or she has committed that offence. You're so naive. 2) A person's arrest or conviction for an offence does not, in and of itself, mean his or her reputation can be impugned without consequence in other matters. Completely wrong...

Re: My Story

Who gave Carl permission to lasso the chess playing community on to his site. I thought it was paid for by the ECF. I thought Carl was a paid employee of the ECF. It was originally an official ECF Forum. When a Council meeting moved to sever all links, it became an unofficial privately-operated for...

Re: My Story

I would just like to say, Carl, that I find it unfair that you have moderated my post and everyone who says we should hear the other side of the story. Nonsense, I removed one rather personal comment (less than a sentence) that was really not needed and had no effect on the points you were trying t...

Re: ECF Code of Conduct

Jonathan,

Where do you stand on people trying to build empires within chess, by denigrating what others have done to build their empire.

What has the ECF done for me lately?

Just been looking at Tony Gaffney's (London based) Up-To-Date Grading List from No.3 January 86 (yes over 26 years ago), it make interesting reading. You got list of events included in the grading list, and details of grading publication requirements (minimum 15 games and maximum 50 <= latest I woul...

Re: Minimum Grades

Is there any-one on here that would let this guy play in an under 170 event. Kidlington allowed it, but he got hacked up. http://www.ecfgrading.org.uk/?ref=101820G&listid=173402054 Is he the same as this guy . I believe they are the same. Different FIDE rating code though. After further investi...

Re: Minimum Grades

Grading/rating has to be accurate, but also has to be informed. Is there any-one on here that would let this guy play in an under 170 event. I personally don't believe anybody should be aloud to enter a grading limited event if they don't have a grade. I see too many graded events won by ungraded p...
