Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-20-21  BobbyDigital80: It says this guy is 106 years old. That's amazing if he's still alive!
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Yeah, I wasn't thrilled with the automatic age display when Daniel first instituted it. In a few years, this site will be littered with player pages of centenarians.
Apr-21-21  SkySports: I agree it's annoying...
Maybe the algoritm could be modified so that the years are changed to something like "death date unknown" when the player exceeds a certain age (100 years?).
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: No, that'd be a bit embarrassing for those still alive. I don't see the point of it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Stonehenge: A simple solution is not showing an age at all when they are 100+ years old.
Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: The world's least pressing problem.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: <Stone>, why show their age at all?
Apr-21-21  SkySports: <OhioChessFan: No, that'd be a bit embarrassing for those still alive.> So let's set the threshold to 118 years; only 3 women (and no men) in human history have passed that limit, and they were not chess players ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Why 100? Why 118? Why have it at all?
Apr-21-21  SkySports: <OhioChessFan: Why 100? Why 118? Why have it at all?> Well, I agree this would solve the problem at the root cause...
Jan-26-22  Z truth 000000001: I propose we just eliminate death and be done with it.
