[4/6, 6:18 PM] Bryan Wilson: Hello everyone some information coming. on the new site that we play our chess tournaments on they have special algorithms and computer engines following each game. And they will let your child know if he was caught cheating by using computer assistance. If you want to find out about your child check the notifications on their home screen. They will be notified if they're caught cheating and could be banned from the site after one warning. I bring this up cuz there was potentially another cheater in one of our tournaments. When this occurs and it is caught by the website the rating points are refunded to the opponent through a notification.please parents if you can keep an eye on your children as they played in this tournament to keep the competitive balance Fair. Thank you
1. [4/6, 6:19 PM] Bryan Wilson: Here’s what it says on the website: “Lichess has strong detection methods and a very thorough process for reviewing all the evidence and making a decision. The process often involves many moderators and can take a long time. Other than the mark itself, we will not go into details about evidence or the decision making process for individual cases. Doing so would make it easier to avoid detection in the
2. future, and be an invitation to unproductive debates. That time and effort is better spent on other important cases. Users can appeal by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, but decisions are rarely overturned. 3. Parents are forbidden to help their children during the games Commissioner Bryan Wilson will be the arbitrator during such disputes.Any parent with a dispute has to email the commissioner on that day of the dispute.The ruling will come after an investigation. 4. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your game its a automatic forfeit. 5. If a player cannot make it to one of the games ,That player must inform The commissioner or their General manager ,24 hours before the start of the team match.The team in question can then pull from the free agent list of players.
