lol @dan815 they gonna suspend you
Sign me up, and put me as #1 on top 10 rank
astro, we are having a tournament tomorow. i will send out link to everyone :)
wOW star gonna smash us
Last I checked, this was OpenStudy...? LOL Well, chess is educational...I guess... When is the creation of OpenChess? ^_^
I'd like to teach/mentor I already started teaching Hay tactics
really hays is getting good?
it is userful becasue many people on os is a chess players
@EclipsedStar basiclly, for what ambassador section is made>?
-The thing is this site is meant for homework help -I wouldn't implement this onto the site it would distract users and keep them from helping users who need help. -Users procrastinate enough we dont need more -OpenSTUDY not OpenGAMES
chess is a education as well
I'm working on it Dan :P
I challenge, dan he's a joke
stop pooja its a closed form, only ppl that want to be tagged will be tagged if u dont want ot be a part of it just delete your comment and u wont get an notification
design section is also not for studying
and nobody says anything bad about it
I have to agree with Pooja here...this is a site for school work though. Plus there are way too many people that will get distracted from their actual work...a lot of users come here for school purposes. Btw design is actually a school class
lol that's not how it works dan :P This post is irrelevant to the feedback section why not just pm users who want to be apart of what this is ? Design section can be useful for showing art work :)
@dan815 add astro to our list
we can't pm all opesntudy
I am using 1 closed form until our section is formed
how is this breaking down OS right now
2/10 ill buy into those ods
mira, it is already closed lol
many ppl say someone cant be done when ur on the verge of something beautiful
But we persevere, and for those of us who do, we will see our fruit.
I agree with dan, I think this is pretty cool and chess is a game for Scholars haha, I support this post! :) And if people are interested in this, I don't see it hurting anyone. It's a closed post, I don't see any reason for anyone to spam this other than using it as joining as a member and then messaging each other to play a game. Cool idea.
yea only 3 people dont agree with it
all os agree with it exept for ambi and mods lol
It's not having a section for chess, just one post not a big deal
I never said I didn't agree... :P
ty :') guys this site is to haev fun and learn, lets do both
Ok lets stop this now.
i will beat all of you because when i play chess i listen to special music
Lol what kind of music
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0P0EBWSNG4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5n5DPBdc0co https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2f9rJvufZg and many others, but the videos are sad, so i will not post them :) lol
these are also but they are sad videos :( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YG0Rlqff1po https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRZoGCkSxyA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1W7z7MEy9E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTr4Z5SwuHE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLByZVai0Kk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmkXw9qIQvM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMliCnsY5zw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mw53CaI_u4k
i'm backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk lol =]
REMINDER to everybody who wants to have a tournament with us tomorow: if you don't have an account on lichess.org, please make it so it will be possible to play.
@dan815 add @rvc to the list.
chess is a game which is good for your brains so it should not matter And its far better than Those STD games
Tournament: time: 40+20 sec tournament time: 150 mins type: classical long game
Rules for new ones: Is it rated? This tournament is rated and will affect your rating. How are scores calculated? A win has a base score of 2 points, a draw: 1 point, and a loss is worth no points. If you win two games consecutively you will start a double point streak, known as a Streak Starter. The following games will continue to be worth Double Points until you fail to win a game. That is, a win will be worth 4 points, a draw: 2 points, and a loss will remain worth no points. For example, two wins followed by a draw will be worth 6 points: 2 + 2 + (2 x 1) Arena Berserk When a player clicks the Berserk button at the beginning of the game, they lose half of their clock time, but the win is worth one extra tournament point. Going Berserk in time controls with an increment also cancels the increment. (1+2 is an exception, it gives 1+0) Berserk is not available for games with zero initial time (0+1, 0+2). Berserk only grants an extra point if you play at least 7 moves in the game. How is the winner decided? The player(s) with the most points at the conclusion of the tournament's set time limit will be announced winner(s). How does the pairing work? At the beginning of the tournament, players are paired based on their rating. As soon as you finish a game, return to the tournament lobby: you will then be paired with a player close to your ranking. This ensures minimum wait time, however you may not face all other players in the tournament. Play fast and return to the lobby to play more games and win more points. How does it end? The tournament has a countdown clock. When it reaches zero, the tournament rankings are frozen, and the winner is announced. Games in progress must be finished, however they don't count for the tournament. Other important rules. You are required to make your first move within 20 seconds of your turn. Failing to make a move in this time will forfeit the game to your opponent. Drawing the game within the first 10 moves of play will earn neither player any points.

Announcings: http://en.lichess.org/3oQOkslL/black Alex vs Sadist Game in progress: http://en.lichess.org/XwJqyjky/black Araving vs Malcom
current games played.
lol the system works unfair. I should have been playing with araving and mal vs sadist
the system will decide who to play with who.
well, in a real tournament you also do not choose your player
so i don't see anything unfair
But they are skilled right...? Not a newbie like me.. >.<
not all: sadist is not strong
@MatthewPFDS could you please pm me questions? cause this post gets spammed a lot
I'll have to work on chess skills. But first I have to get done with my exams.

@malcolmmcswain you can always click Withdraw and leave tournament
but ppl can challenge ppl for ranks and spots and time
We will have a special type of challenge call the Rank Swap challenge
What's the site?
only with people +/- 10 rank spots can u have the RANK swap challenge with
Maybe my brother will make us a website for all this stuff :)
he likes to program websites so
I can do that. I'm a professional web developer. :P
Thanks, yeah I'm sure you can also make forums for free
woah sweet u guys!
there is no need dan
lichess is a nice site
i didnt know we had such talents in our club :)
Lol we should definitely have our own website for ranking and stuff tho
yes it is alexander but we need like a better site to keep track or we need a chess section quick :)
but it would be nice to have our own club website BKC or the OCC official website
with a sick chess background
offical site for what?
I'll put together a quick sleek one on weebly so u guys can easily edit it. :)
okay im gonna oraganize teams for u guys to work in and get back together on tomorrow after my exam

hays pls important presidential and general manage duties are going on here
Guys we need to have like an official meeting place
I think this coding shouldnt be too difficult, ill make a program for it if i have to
and a way to alert all the members at* once, like make some program that is able to send multiple msgs to the names we want
The weebly site can notify via email...
We might need to collect emails for people who want notifs.
hmm, many people domn't like giving out emails. this is not good. and people do not often check emails
this would count as collecting personal info
yeah i think we better avoid that
maybe jay can help us?
we just need to make it more accessible off OS
dont worry we will think of something
and yah itd be great to have jaynator on our team
we can make him make some extensions for us hehe
CUSTOM BKC extensions wooo
we will make our site called blackknightschess.com lol
Black Knights Club!
think about club alex! we will be this sick exclusive club
Chess - The worlds progress!
they wont know what kind of black knights we are yet
whos the one who is control of that os chess club account? just wandering
We will be the blackknights club for everything for chess, soon we will give strategic advice to the gov

OCC- the OpenStudy chess comminuty. Founded by Dab and Alex, this community is growing up.
we need more words for the description lol
Yes. Also, real subtle. :)
yeah guys we need to hold like serious meetings ololo
to discuss our future and strategies for expansion BAHAHAHah
ok i gonna work on it
Important accouncement the user @OpenstudyChessClub will be remaking the chess form, and we will relocate there, all these are temporary until our own section or better functionality is designed either by OS or our personal web designers
so my speech has been wasted lol
Im working on the site as fast as possible...
I need a description....
malcom! you are a shirto mirto! you are white not black!
No but srsly wut should I writttteeeee
i would write the followjng: OCC- is the openstudy chess community. It is founded by Dan, Alex and Malcolm. This community is the community of chess players from openstudy. This community has a name Black Knights. Every member is a black knight. We make tournaments and we teach basic chess. but dan says that we have to make it later
I FOUND THIS: The OCC (Openstudy Chess Club) or the BKC (Black Knights Club) was formed on Dec,10,2015. It is my honor to welcome the privileged members of the OCC. We are now venturing on a new journey. We do not know everything this club can be as of right now. However, there is a dream for this club. It is to unite Openstudy. Everything else is a means to the mission. We will have fun getting there.
its so cute lol
check out my profile dan =]. do you notice something lol
and we need a site for announces and congratulations. Because os is not made for it :(
Had my net not crashed,I would have made it to top 3 :(
Nevertheless,CONGRATS to all the winner :)
