Site’s sections 09.07.2013

jv-june2013 Dear Friends,

I have some comments for you about site’s sections:

  • Recently I’ve corrected a little Site INTRO, although it needs to have some more information I believe;
  • I wished to have a good Fairy Terms section, but seems like I have to declare that I’ll have there only the definitions for fairy elements used in Original Problems section;
  • Articles page is up to date and you’re always welcome to send your articles for publication;
  • My problems I’m trying to update from time to time (mostly for myself);
  • Original problems section is up to date, I’m trying to publish your problems the same day when receive;
  • Tourneys section is going to be changed a little – in the future I won’t show there an excerpts of the tourney announcements, but only the links to full announcements as it is shown for the last tourneys at the bottom part of the page; but the same time I’ll make a short post in site’s home about each new tourney added;
  • In Software section I have only information about programs I use myself; WinChloe‘s page is still unfinished;
  • Links I haven’t updated for a long time; if you wish your site to be added there – just send me an url and few words of description;
  • About me page I’ve finally translated into Russian;
  • Forum I’ve added long time ago to allow you to open new topics, not only to comment mine. For now it’s quite passive. But you’re welcome to try it!

Have a nice summer season! /Julia

Updates as of 06th of July, 2013:

  • (06.07) No.345 – Julia Vysotska – Anti-batteries, reciprocal play of neutral PAO/NAO, Take&Make with activity of the white King and black Q! This problem is partly based on the idea shown in my No.342.
  • (06.07) I’ve added three my own published problems to My Problems section:
    • No.69 – The first try with Kangaroo-Lion, h#3,5.
    • No.73 – My second problem with Take&Make, composed right after No.165, hopefully on a better level!
    • No.85 -This one is like a toy with Marine Knight, composed in an hour, without computer, and appeared to be C+ when tested!

Preliminary Award JF-2013-I

English version
of the AWARD JF-2013/I
is ready!

 

I’m happy to announce that English version of the Award for Julia’sFairies-2013/I is ready! I’m so much grateful to Geoff Foster who’s worked together with me under this translation, has helped me to understand many problems and comments better and to make the result so close to original text. I have to tell also, that with all the work we still appreciated all detailed comments a lot and were thankful for them to the judge! I believe that many of you, who will read the Award, will understand some of the problems much better.

The Award is preliminary now and will become final after two weeks, on the 17th of July. The final version will be corrected in accordance with comments and objections you send.

One more time my congratulations to the winners and thanks a lot to all participants!
