cabadenwurt

Thanks for all of the recent posts.

Meadmaker: Thanks for all of the good info on previous rules used for Chess.

Thanks for that cartoon Pellik, I like that one.

In the spirit of other threads I did see one recently where they were wondering about who was averavge. So I came up with my own silly ratings:

Below 900 --- Patzers

From 900 to 1199 --- Woodpushers

From 1200 to 1499 --- Average

From 1500 to 1799 --- Above average

From 1800 to 2100 --- Very good

Above 2100 --- " Super Duper " ( ie future Title holders ? )

Woodpushers of the world, unite!

At least according to that ranking system, I'm out of patzer range.

MyCowsCanFly

Ranges with fish names might be appropriate...

Below 900 --- Guppy

From 900 to 1199 --- Clown Fish

From 1200 to 1499 --- Carp

From 1500 to 1799 --- Puffer FIsh

From 1800 to 2100 --- Lion FIsh

Above 2100 --- ?

p-wnattack

obviously above 2100 should be shark

cabadenwurt

Thanks for the recent posts. Yes we Woodpushers should unite !!!

The reason that I set up the ratings this way is that it got me out of the Patzers  lol. I like the fish names too, and yes SHARKS are over 2100. Laughing

Well I see that we have another " silly " thread on the go in one of the forums here. Sometime ago I got into trouble with someone that was upset with people who liked to sum up threads ( indeed I'm still blocked by that person  lol ). Now I see that the same character has a thread on the go about trolling and blocking spam etc. I guess that time will tell how far that thread will go, perhaps someone will sum things up over there. Laughing 

corrijean

He still has me blocked because of the sum it up thread, too. 

corrijean

Oh, well. I still think the sum it up thread was one of the funnier threads in the forums despite all the blocking.

cabadenwurt

Yes I agree with you Corrijean. I gather that the person in question is quite young and he took everything soooo serious which made things appear very humorous.

AlCzervik

Haha! He still has me blocked, too!

cabadenwurt

Well to sum up here at this point, I guess that is what we get for trying to sum up somebody else's thread. Laughing

corrijean

Maybe we should start a support group. Tongue Out

fianchetto123

how about this one...

Below 2700-Patzers

2700-2749-Woodpushers

2750-2799-Average

2800-2824-Above average

2825-2849-Very good

2850+  Super Duper

200 and below-Astounding

cabadenwurt

Thanks for the info Fianchetto. That is an interesting idea, I imagine that 98 to 99% of the players on the planet would be in the Patzer class ( might upset a few people tho ). Smile

AndyClifton

Who was that little sum-it-up doofus btw?  I hope he has me blocked too (it's a matter of honor). Smile

cabadenwurt

Thanks for the post AndyClifton. The sum-up King was Matthew11 who I gather is quite young ( and still has me blocked  lol ).  

DrSpudnik

I think he was the first to block me.

I blocked him too.

So there.

cabadenwurt

DrSpudnik: That should get his goat. I mean if he is going to block a large number of people he must count on being blocked as well.
