Message to Players

Sunday, September 22, 2019: From the WTD and TDC

Dear chessfriends,
Friday (Sep 20, 2019) during the early morning UK time there was a problem with transferring the iccf.com domain by the hosting company. This problem was solved but the server was not available for a period of time of less than 24 hours. As a result it is possible a number of games have been defaulted by players. In order to deal with this situation the TDs were instructed to:
- Add 1 day of reflection time to games played by players requesting it
- Any appeals for flagged games over this period of time will be treated sympathetically by the ICCF Appeals Committee
In order to ask for the 1 day to be added to your reflection time you must consider the following:
- It was your turn to move
- Your games were not stopped because of you being away (leave, vacation, etc)
- We cannot add time to games being played under the Triple Block System
- Time will be added only for games played on the server
It is our desire to correct any wrongdoing to those affected. If the above does not apply to you, please be reasonable and do not claim the extra day. Your cooperation is much appreciated. Thank you.
Kind regards,
Frank Geider, ICCF WTD
Valer Eugen Demian, ICCF Tournament Director Committee Chair
