  1. Hi Bob,

    I just want to point out that my new grade is 176, not 172.

    Chris D

    1. Whoops! Corrected now - sorry.

    2. Hi Bob,
      No January Grade for Dominic Carter of Saxmundham. Not your fault as he is not on the ECF database despite being a bronze member. ECF website is firmly in overload condition this evening.
      Found this while researching to support my amendments about retrospective grade changes on the results website.
      Against the rules you know! Stupid rule Good website.

      Nosey from Haughley

    3. Being an ECF member doesn't in itself qualify you to be on the grading database. Dominic played eight games up to the end of December, and needed nine to get his first grade. He has since played one more and the average of the 9 games is 144, which I suggest should be his new estimated grade for the remainder of this season.

  2. John Price B24834 257342J
    I object to one of my opponents being given an estimated grade of "0" thereby reducing my grade. This is the third time this has happened in the last ten years and it just does not get corrected.

    Your frustrated

    1. John - email me at bobjoneschess (at) btinternet,com and I'll explain all.
