The Evergreen Game

The famous evergreen game by Adolf Anderssen as 3D video animation. This is one of the games that never ceases to amaze me. Especially when I was younger I enjoyed replaying this game on a chessboard alongside similar games like the ones played by Murphy.

Ivanchuck versus ... Bibbusque?!?!

Yes, the title is true. Ivanchuck plays against no other than our member Bibbusque in this video. The occassion for this 15 0 game was a tournament in Italy. Bibbu has a clear advantage but in time trouble he grants Ivanchuck the draw. That was probably the last time Invanchuck gets lucky against Bibbusque ;-)

User Profile Pages Are Online!

As promised, I update the website today with profile pages for users. You can now enter profile data, upload an user image and set your location on a world map. A few data fields will be available to public while the biggest part will be only visible to other logged in Monkey Club members. So no worries about your privacy. If you are logged in you should see some new links in the box on the right side of this page.

You can look at my profile page here for example: http://monkeychess.net/user/profile/Mark/ These pages are linked from the blog comments section as well as from the quotes page. I will further incorporate profile stuff into the rest of the website in the following weeks.

One new feature is that you can your password resetted automatically. For this, you have to enter a valid e-mail address. Once an e-mail address is as associated with your account you can use the "forgot password" feature to get a new one. No more bothering me with this ;-)

Well, this is it for now. Look at everything and add your data. If you forgot your password then send me a fics message with your e-mail address and your desired password and I will set it for you. Same goes if you do not have an account on this website yet.

I would be really glad if you guys have suggestions how to improve this new section. What kind of data fields should we add? Where should data be displayed? Also, please report all errors/typos you encounter.

New Site Features Coming This Weekend

I am happy to announce some new website features that will air this weekend. The first thing will be a profile section where you can add and edit your personal data. This will also include support for avatars (= user images) and picking your location on a world map. Not every private information will be made public for all visitors but registered team members will be allowed to see them.

Along with that there will also be the probably most wanted feature to date: "forgot password". If you provide an e-mail address you can then have your password automatically resetted in case you forgot it. Open registrations will still be prohibited though for the moment.

And if time allows it, we will also include the teamleague feature so that all upcoming games as well as past results will be automaticall displayed here on this website.
