Re: British Championship 2018

EDIT: OK, Gormally-Adams is getting interesting, with an exchange for two pawns (Adams has the two pawns). Anyone care to say whether that is the sort of position Adams could grind out a win from? After 26... c5 I expect Adams to make it look easy. Making hard work of it then not sure opening it up...

JT I do realise that this forum has a very limited reach but when the ECF post on this very forum about its wonderful re branding plans I reserve the right to comment when I see fit. Its the members who end up paying for these poorly implemented schemes after all.
Limited?

I expect the ECF to assert their copyright over the game and prevent all discussion about it on this forum.
Happy to publish the masterpiece and ignore the ECF.

I will move this whole thread to the ECF section later.
Any chance of sticking a 2018 on the title to make it easier to identify in future years?
Ok done.

I made a mistake during the move so sorry about that for people still reading the current one :oops:

Re: Director of Women's Chess

Separately, those of us who subscribe to Chess magazine will have seen the editorial where the appointment of Chris Fegan is discussed in some length. Apparently the new director is pushing for an increased budget and has some `excellent` policy ideas. Perhaps slightly more controversially the edit...

Re: Swiss Manager - Help Needed

Roger, except for creating a new entry in the ECF grading list. We have already beaten this topic to death at the start of this whole thread. I will leave the thread here, as it is now in danger of becoming yet another forum deja vu all over again retread. You are close to taking a break again Paul.

Re: Which Candidate Should the ECF Support in the FIDE Presidential Election?

I might even merge the two but that would probably get incredibly messy.

Please check the User Control Panel in the top right dropping down off your user name and then board preferences.

Anyone not logged in should see a timezone of Europe/London so UTC+1

When I'm logged in, Forum posts are timed in GMT, but when I log out, they're in BST.
Curious.


(Edited to get it the right way round!)
Check your board preference in your user control panel - it "should" be pretty automatic now at UTC+1
