Wrong. They're closed sixty or ninety days after they die due to a dried up pipeline of interest.

Our general forum is stuck on personality differences and people. Haven't you noticed the shortage of conversational opportunities on topics concerning issues of the day and new ideas?

Right on, Bobby! I couldn't agree with you more.


Provide us with a new idea.

After 60 days of inactivity, anyway. After all, this is the General Forum, meant for odds and ends and not for serious discussions. Why would you expect otherwise?

Try to grasp the central idea, Kewpie.

Goodie for you, Pond. I'm impressed with your unselfishness and restraint.

You insult yourself, Pal. And we all thought you were a credit to the community.

For starters, how about some thoughtful chat focused on psychological dimensions of chess play and avenues for improving chess skills?

Excellent suggestion. But wouldn't that be more appropriate for the Only Chess forum?

Generally speaking I'd have to agree.

Exactly the reaction I expected. Only purpose in suggesting it was to get your attention. 'New Ideas for Needed Inventions' might prove to become a discussion many may enjoy. Fact is, most so called market ready inventions nowadays are frivolous copy cat extensions of already existing products and services. Think about it... the last fiv significant breakthrough, game changing ideas since fire and the wheel (which someone had the courage to explore and the nerve to implement) were sliced bread, indoor plumbing, car jacks, the worldwide internet and ball point pens. Ball's in your court, HandeyJack. -gb

why don't you set up a few theses from the paper:

e.g.

*One crucial point for theorists about chess skill to consider is the role for memory tasks. After all, chess players are not required to recall (de Groot, CS) or reconstruct (CS perception task) chess positions to earn their livelihood. A simple existence proof is that there are very strong chess playing programs that are utterly unable to recall chess positions (could not perform the CS tasks without significant modification), so clearly recall ability is not necessary for skilled play

thesis: Skilled play is possible without memory.
