Re: NOVA 2011 Results
I think there's a bug whenever I play trencherknight. it says i have 9 days left to move in the game summary, and i've been moving each day, but in the game window my time is gradually running out - 8 days, 7 days, etc. I think I'll run out of time no matter what I do, but I'll move each day as usual.

Re: NOVA 2011 Results
with 'null' and 'void' you've got me thinking about work, and computer programming, and contractual negotiations, and many other things! I'll play quickly and see how it goes - maybe it's some quirk that will go away. No other games are affected.

I show us at approximately the same times - must be due to the Canadian exchange rate

gg. Yeah, not sure what I was doing there. Looks like the time control is okay though and things look normal in my setting for correspondence - finally!

Re: NOVA 2011 Results
I am sure you are right, yaman, but I have been here too long to give
up on this Site now. If only the Administration would give us a live chat session once a month, or even more frequently, it would help a lot. There has not been an Administrative post in six months, and even that was about a minor matter. But, I will keep posting and messaging away to get the events I start properly completed.
 
I may be wrong about this, but I think the Administration got discouraged a couple of Novas back, when they gave book prizes to all members of the winning Team, and AdminBrian held a well-publicized meeting to award the prizes in a, "cerermony" in a Chat Room. I was
sure that, at least, the winners would show up, but nobody came except
me and AdminBrian. It was quite demoralizing, but it didn't make me give up.

Re: NOVA 2011 Results
To maintain the integrity of the Boards, and of the Event as well, only the pairings made when the Event started will be allowed. I am sorry to hear about BrandonE's difficulties, and the forfeit to Gladiator, but, "it's all in the game." There are only eight games remaining to be completed and these should all be concluded within the next month.

Re: NOVA 2011 Results
shame the event got trashed by the forfeits.Might not have made a difference but still-pathetic way for a long standing event to transpire
