    A new policy for Chesstalk beginning Jan 1, 2018

    Chess'n Math will be charging organizers of chess events $20 (tax included) per event to advertise on this site or they can purchase a 2018 subscription for $100 (tax included) which allows them to advertise as many events as they wish in 2018.

    They must also post the results here.

    Please contact me in order to make your payment. bevand at chess-math dot org

    Congrats, long overdue.

    Just a mention ... there seems to be a script running in visitor's browsers when on this forum. The script seems to be using your CPU for mining cryptocurrency without your knowledge.

    Open up your Task Manager (ctrl+alt+del) and watch your CPU spike when on this forum.

    I haven't been able to track the exact script but when I do a block of several well known mining scripts using No Coin addon for Firefox I have been able to control all of them. But I think there is just one, could be coinhive or coin-hive that is the culprit.


    Anywho, hope that helps.

    Assuming that the add will be the thread with the event details - will you make the thread sticky on the top of the page lets say two month in advance, and one-two weeks after.

    The message my antivirus is giving is " We've safely aborted connection on coinhive.com because it was infected with JS:Miner-C [Trj]"

    Hope this helps.

    Seems like a small price to pay for advertizing. Larry, will that be tax in or tax out? Just need to budget for Banff Open 2018. I will propose to ACA that we advertize here. Much cheaper than $1500 for a Chess Life ad!

    Larry - will this new policy work?

    Do you charge:

    1) Sylvain Millette for announcing his Wednesday and Friday tournaments held at the CMA offices in Montreal.
    2) Vadim Tsypin when he holds tournaments at the CMA offices in Montreal.
    3) Francis Rodriguez when he announces CMA tournaments in Toronto.
    4) Jean Hébert for announcing a lecture.
    5) Someone announcing a foreign GM tournament.

    Suppose you get the FQE (or some other organizer) to pay the annual fee. What's to stop them from advertising tournaments from anyone who asks them (i.e. they become a tournament announcement clearinghouse)?

    Exactly how will this work?

    a) How will payments be made?
    b) Who will be moderating and tracking posters to ensure they have paid?
    c) Can an organization like the EOCA pay the subscription for all EOCA tournaments, or will it be separate charges for the individual organizers?

    Hi Egidijus,

    In the ealy days of Chesstalk we used the sticky feature often. The result was that the list was long and people just ignored those posts. I think organisers updating their info on a regular basis, as we do now, is a better way to go.

    a) They can be made with an e-transfer or on a credit card.

    b) Who will be moderating and tracking posters to ensure they have paid?
    b) For now I will moderate. If someone posts without paying, the post will be removed and the person will be banned from the site until payment is made.

    c) Can an organization like the EOCA pay the subscription for all EOCA tournaments, or will it be separate charges for the individual organizers?
    c) Normally it will be the individual organizer. I may take a second look at this.
