Good work Jake! I undersdtand, you have posted the solution already. That's good. I have not had time to view it yet, but I suspect it had the same basic idea I had offered earlier.

I am guilty of trying to offer a solution without having a board in front of me. I was wrong about the 26-23 move because I offered it too early. White should have made the sacrifice of 12-8 and then made the 26-23 move-provided Black took the 11X4 jump. If instead, Black took the 3 x 12 jump, then White simply moves 18-14. All is well that ends well. Continue the great work. Again, I don't have a board before me, but I think I have it correct this time.

You do not need a board Pecan - the solution is in Javascript - meaning you can just click on various moves and watch the game played out in every variation! You probably missed the solution in prior posting - here it is again http://www.checkersusa.com/checkers/pool/tdam/Document/challenge.htm . Tdam is the greatest!

Mr Charter to be rather impatient with some of our lacking in checker interest.

The lack of response (read total silence) of the readers hurt the whole idea of the site as a place of communication.
You noticed that the site slowed down significantly - after the initial effort to set it up it now waits for the users to use it - and no one does.
We started the conversation on Rules - no response. Mr. Thompson set a great example with his Legends and Chicago News - no one followed. APCA just plain does not answer.
I did receive some private letters - which seemed to indicate the attitude of awe, and the humility of the senders. They all wanted to WATCH the site grow. Help me convince them the site is OUR site - it is only US together that can make it work. Stop with humility and speak up! The site is not a musium - it is a place for you to communicate!

Now you see why they find me impatient - but is it that bad to be impatient for a good cause? Don't many people want me to wake them up? Probably the same people that were asking for the site for years.

Many plans, such as various-level classes, history, internet clubs, tournaments, meetings, open discussions, - they all depend on user participation. So how long do you think one should stay patient - a month, a year, 3 years? How long until even you will say it is too long?

You are absolutely correct Mr Charter; It has helped my game,

It has helped my computer interest and knowledge and most of

it has given me a chance to come before friends and fellowship.

I know my good friend shotgun is going to laugh at me for making

an error, but that is just good clean fun and we enjoy such good

clean fun.


I would strongly erge others to take the challenge.

I agree Mr Charter, it is indeed to sometimes necessary to "GIVE a BOOST". I agree , "To all things there is a time and a season".

A time to be patient, and a time to be tackful. And then there is a
time to put away patience and employ good tough love. But I believe
sufficent time must be given to get the word out. How many VOG
players know and realize what a great idea and a great communications
tool the bulletin board is. Except one has read it in detail they just don't
know. I never knew what great information the bb offered. The
potential is unlimited. So hang in there friends, and in a little while
everybody will have a input and we will be glad we did.
