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.
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 --- ?
obviously above 2100 should be shark
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.
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.
He still has me blocked because of the sum it up thread, too.
Oh, well. I still think the sum it up thread was one of the funnier threads in the forums despite all the blocking.
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.
Haha! He still has me blocked, too!
Well to sum up here at this point, I guess that is what we get for trying to sum up somebody else's thread.
Maybe we should start a support group.
how about this one...
2850+ Super Duper
200 and below-Astounding
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 ).
Who was that little sum-it-up doofus btw? I hope he has me blocked too (it's a matter of honor).
Thanks for the post AndyClifton. The sum-up King was Matthew11 who I gather is quite young ( and still has me blocked lol ).
I think he was the first to block me.
I blocked him too.
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.
