Now that post is what I call short, succinct and to the point. Kevin is a very fast learner.

Censorship and veiled insults -- if you have nothing constructive to contribute, you wrote too many lines.
We're having a serious discussion here. Please go troll somebody else.

Your post don't need any censorship.
Nobody reads such long stuff, maybe native speakers
are able to read them in two minutes. Most of us
need much longer.

You two should start your own separate thread, where you can discuss how you don't read long posts.
You can write long posts there, if you want to be ironical.
Good luck with that effort.

This is no place for that discussion.
Please appreciate that such intrusion into this discussion is quite rude.

Actually it was You who side tracked this thread on a Memorial tourney into classification and stipulation.

Here is a more detailed breakup of the entries received for the 2019-21 album (Sections G1 and G2 combined).
The scope for any new section (other than hs#) is not very significant.

@Seetharaman Kaylan,

This is not the place to be interjecting with false accusations.
If you want to have a private conversation, send me a mail here and we can privately resolve whatever is bothering you.

Your allegation is demonstrably false. Click the "previous posts" button, and you will see:
The issue of reflexmates, specifically how they are categorized in this memorial tourney for Unto Heinonen, was raised by others (not me).
I responded to Joose concerning the categorization of reflexmates in this MT, and I saluted the hosts for properly categorizing them as a fairy condition : "s#n + REFLEX").
In so doing, I broadened the scope of the conversation, incorrectly stating that the Album should also categorize reflexmates as FAIRIES, but I was wrong -- the Album already does categorize them correctly, though in so doing, I do believe they conceal the fairy condition in an improper stipulation form (so, both cheers and boos for them).
Kostas then raised a recent categorization proposal for the Album (I opened the door to that).
We are currently discussing that proposal.

That said... this is not the place. I am happy to amicably resolve the matter privately, if you wish.

I plan to open a new thread focused exclusively to the FIDE Album proposal (unless somebody gets there first). Expect some detailed posts to appear there soon.
Out of respect for Unto Heinonen (mindful that his passing was a terrible loss for all who love beautiful chess problems), it's fair to say that the present discussion has reached a point where it should relocate to a thread.

@Shankar Ram,

Thank you for providing theses statistics. I'd like to discuss your proposal in more detail (but out of respect, it's best we relocate to another thread).
I've read your proposal carefully, and I have come to understand your position much better now.

For the record, I do very much respect you, and I am thankful you have made this proposal -- whether or not I come to fully support the plan you've detailed, I admire your efforts to improve the categorization of the Album.

Whatever may come of it, I am grateful to you (and Vlaicu) for providing us your vision for a better Album (and for making a persuasive case for improvements).
I am hopeful it will inspire others to contribute their own ideas (and all will be welcome to share those in a thread coming soon).
