Even if this site is essentially a "one man project", there are many people that contributed in different ways. The following list of contributors is sorted alphabetically. I can only express my gratitude with a very big THANK YOU!
They delivered feedback concerning the Grand Prix system. Furthermore they reminded me of the "two players, one computer" problem.
His constructive criticism with regard to the navigation, the login process and many other points helped improve the site substantially.
Jeroen is the author of several articles published here. Our discussions by email and ICQ-chat have been invaluable. His chess website Tacky Patzer Chess is one of the most entertaining chess sites on the web.
He delivered very precise and some conceptual ideas. Furthermore, he provided the images of the chess pieces used for the games. Are you interested in China, or do you even plan to travel there? His China page is worth a visit!
His feedback on the naming of the leagues and his problem report helped a lot.
He contributed many test reports, especially relating to WebTV. His "hey, that's great" comments were very encouraging.
He contibuted in many different ways.
Second, more private discussions helped to improve the design of the site.
Third, his excellent newsletter The 4Site Journal inspired many ideas on design and navigation.
His solution for the little menus on many pages is simple and good. Much better than my original method. You may visit him at www.schechtel.de.
My wife helped in many ways. Most important, her "silent approval" of all those nights at the computer made the development of this site possible. But she contributed even more directly: She is responsible for many aspects of the usability and "friendliness" of this site.
His corrections of the texts on the playchess pages much contributed to the comprehensibility of the site.
Eduardo de Suastegui
He wrote the fantastic Java applet for viewing the games played at this site.
Graham is a professional proofreader. Through his corrections some sentences have a "close similarity" with English. All the "Germish" stuff stems from me.
You can visit his website, the Southbourne Chess Club.
He wrote the basic machine for playing web-based email chess games. Parts of his BeholderBoard Virtual Chess-set are still the "kernel" of the PlayChess tournament machine.
