    just to bring up some old ideas from
    http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?id=3835

    a) line length in pgn-files is 79

    b) according the games-mails:
    why are there always three dots betwen black and white. I don't think this is correct.

    c) castling is O-O or O-O-O (big o's like 'obvious'😉 and not little. every move begins with a uppercase letter.

    d) the result after the last move is missing (or the star)

    e) you don't use all the seven standart pgn-tags

    f) it could be indicated the the game was played at RHP

    h) It would be very nice if the pgn-file is directly acessable under a specific URL. eg: http://www.stansco.com/cgi-bin/nc_pgn.cgi?161226

    i) please offer the possibility of SAN-export (short algebraic notation).

    probably you all know it, but I post a link: http://www.very-best.de/pgn-spec.htm

    any chance that I/we get this?

    I doubt if anything will be done. I brought this up also, and my messages were ignored.

    If this site is going to use PGN it should be done correctly.

    Dear Russ,
    just "repair" b) and d) - I'd say these are the most severe faults. The others... okay... 😕

    Thire,

    As I have stated elsewhere, I will be in maintenance mode soon and will be killing off bugs rather than adding features for a while - so this will happen.

    It could be nice to be able to download /see other's pgn files (eg I want to study lionel's playingstyle offline)
    what do you think about that?

    okay, rebringing oooold posts is not funny but I'd LOVE to have real good pgn files: I analyse my games afterwards unter Arena (www.playwitharena.com). will it get better? can you give me some hope? 😉

    when you "repair" some of those little pgn-bugs... I have a little wish: give us the option to download ALL games I every played here at RHP in pgn-format.

    first of all: for me pgn is fine now after this great work and does not need any fixes anymore.
    neverthless I want to name some little things that are not perfect yet - just if Chris gets bored... 😉

    1) the star after the last move when the game is game in progress is missing (8.2.6)
    2) line length in pgn-files should be less than 80 printing characters (4.3)
    3) save offers of draws: more @ http://www.redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php?id=4032 (6.2.10 ...)
    4) for games that were played from piece set a FEN-tag should be added with the starting position (9.7.2)
    5) en passant moves should have a e.p. afterwards
    6) Check and checkmate indication characters are missing (8.2.3.5)
    7) it could be marked when s.o. claimed a timeout (9.8.1)
    8) there is a specification about comments and how movetimes are saved.
    9) the type of the timecontrol can be saved in a tag (9.5. and 9.6. ...)

    as now pgn is very fine (for me) I want to download all my finished games. Is there another way then clicking on every single game that I played in the last 14 month?
    I know that this raises server traffic, but perhaps we get the possibility to access - let's say 25 - games' pgn via search of public games (to study others' games as well).

    I hope that I wasn't rude or something. I love the site very much and now pgn is very good. Thanks a lot,
