Instructions for New Players, Welcome to the team!
Below is a brief set of instructions for posting at the game forum.
Game Forum--Step 1. Make sure your Team League password is set, so you can log in at the game forum. To set your password (in your FICS console): tell teamleague set password (your password) Then at www.teamleague.org, log in using your FICS user name and the password you created for Team League.
Game Forum--Step 2. Every Tuesday, shortly after 2200 server time (EST), or Wednesday morning, log in at www.teamleague.org and post your 3 time offers at the game forum. A sample message is given below: Hi , I can play: Wednesday at 3:30 Sunday at 18:00 Monday at 17:30 If one of these times works for you, let me know, and I will set the time. If not, I look forward to your proposals. -- Roy
After you have offered your times (Make all offers in HH:MM format, EST time), click “Submit.” Be sure to check back at your forum to see your opponent’s offers.
Do not use the "Set Time" option until you and your opponent have agreed on the time. Please Note: If for some reason you will not be able to play on a given week, please message me (RoyRogersC) on Sunday and an alternate will take your place. Additional Suggestions
The command “tell teamleague set email (your email)” will forward all Game Forum messages to your mail inbox, and “set mailmess 1”, forwards all FICS messages to your inbox. Although neither of these commands is necessary, I have found them very useful in alerting me to new developments.
You may also wish to add your teammates to your notify (friends) list using the command: +not (user).
"alias tl xtell teamleague $@" will allow you to type "tl play" instead of "tell teamleague play"
Happy Chess! We wish you all the best in Team League!
