Dormant or Worse
As I feared, there have been no member-organized tournaments for over half a year. There has not even been a post here since August 22, 2014. So, this has become a Site with organized Correspondence tournaments but only challenge and pick-up live games. A great pity.
 
Lovely Caissa has been set adrift
But all she needs is a good face-lift
Oh, Admin, please be abiding
Do come out of your place of hiding!

Re: Dormant or Worse
.. Though Not a 'Corr. chessplayer' myself; I've recently have come around to the belief {of sorts}, That even if the 'Admin.' was 'On-the-ball' like the 'Old Days'; The continued advances of 'chess theory'..{with software like 'kimodo' etc. making a mockery of the antiquated process, of a multi-day 'thinking over' of a move}; Which is/ was, a main 'hallmark' of {slower paced} 'wait-for-your-turn' chess - Your lamenting, the present state-of-affairs, here - Would've happened anyway!
 
In fact; I'm much more concerned about more tangible things!; Like, this town's biggest & best 'laundromat,' closing.. 'until further notice'!? - And, I suspect, it'll get noticeably worse {nation-wide}; Before, it gets better!
 
.. If, a once profitable, 'self-service' laundromat, does Not find a fertile economic environment, for operating; Who's to say, that your local 'gas station' or even grocery store, might not be next{!?} .. Thanks, to our 'joke' of a national 'dollar' currency; With, its circa '$16 trillion, of indebtedness!
- I might be seen, as digressing here; But, it All ties in! -- --

Re: Dormant or Worse
Wiz,
 
We've actually just implemented an entirely new live game interface. Check the Admin Announcements board for more info. We'd love to help you organize some live tournaments with the new interface.

Re: Dormant or Worse
Great to hear from you, Brian! Good to know that these Boards are perused by the Administration!
 
Some questions about the new interface. Do both players of a game have to be using that interface, or can one player use it while the other is using the regular Java? Would it be possible for the Adminstraion to organize and direct one live tournmant to show us just how the thing works? If so, I recommend that it be set up for a month or more from now, and that it be very highly publicized on all the Bulletin Boards.
I could organize and direct such an event, but I don't think I would get nearly the participaton that an official Caissa's Web event would.

Yes, the new interface will work against any other interface. You should give it a try yourself if you haven't already. We'll start sketching out some tournament plans. Hopefully we'll have some interested members.

Hi my dear Caissa friends,
 
I am now back on the site and hope to organise a tournament soon. Please tell me which opening you would like most.
