IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
All players on Board 1 have reported that all games are underway. On Board 3 one player (atena) has reported that all games are underway and on Board 4 one player (bueno) has reported that all games are underway. We therefore know that all players on these two Boards are active. On Board 2, however, there have been no reports, so I need to determine what the bottleneck is on this Board. So, will Sir, SPYPonders, Azathoth and youmayresign please post here indicating which of your games are underway and which are not, so I can determine which player(s) is lagging.

Re: IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
Wiz,
Your initial example has DualSpace vs Spud twice on two boards. DualSpace has not appeared yet which holds Spud, Bueno and me without true starts of six games with minimum of two moves. Bueno is mistaken. I have challenged DualSpace as White on 2/1/14 giving him and the others time cause you started this earlier than planned. youmayresign told me in our 960 game that Azathoth had not showed up yet either but I'll let him update you on that. I have 5 days left on the clock with DualSpace in my game as White but he might cost his team with all of the probable forfeitures to come. Spud, Bueno and I have our two games going against one another both as White and Black. I'll keep you posted if anything changes but you may need to make a ruling on the DualSpace situation.

WizardNo1,
 
I have 3 games started. Waiting on a white challenge from Sir... and Azathoth has not responded at all. I will keep you updated.

Re: IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
I have fixed the duplication. I had accidentally put in Spud where bueno should have been on one matchup. Thanks for calling it to my attention!
 
The trouble seems to be with Azathoth and DualSpace. If anyone has correspondence games with either of them in the regular Caissa Tournaments, please use the notes feature in these games to remind them to get their NOVA 2014 games started! I will do what I can to get them to send their NOVA Challenges and to accept their NOVA Challenges.

Re: IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
Azathoth and DualSpace are now the only stragglers. Only their 12 games remain unstarted. If anyone is in contact with either, please implore them to get their NOVA 2014 games started!

I am playing Sir and Spyponder, Azathoth cannot explain what his handle means.

Re: IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
youmayresign, since you have a game going with Sir, please use this game to send him a note telling him he must challenge his opponents, Azathoth and SPYPonders as White and accept challenges from them as Black! Also, use your contact with Azathoth to tell him that he must make and accept his challenges! Thanks!
 
And, do you have both games going vs. SPYPonders and Sir?

Re: IMPORTANT! NOVA 2014 Information Request.
Regarding Sir I noticed he hasn't responded to my first move as white and he hasn't challenged in black. I have two other games separate from this tournament. It is a good idea to put "nova 2014" in your chat so you know.(spyponder idea). Azathoth is not in communication.

Wiz,
 
I just posted in the main NOVA 2014 thread. All of my games are underway. One challenge was missed initially so it just got to the 2nd move today.

I guess where I made my mistake is I thought that, "all games underway," merely entailed that the challenges were made. I stand corrected.

To get all the latest information on NOVA 2014 go to the NOVA 2014 Teams And Pairings segment. That is where all results and other NOVA matters should be posted.
