The biggest award of all is the amount of friendly emails received from hundreds of readers from all over the world.
Below, you find the other awards received from our beginning to about 2002:
Mind Sports Olympiad Link of the week.
The first `Link of the Week' award, ever given out by the Mind Sports Olympiad
website. This is a big yearly event where many `mind sports' (like chess,
bridge, and many other games) are played. September 9 - 15, 1999.
The Chess Variant Pages were picked by the website, associated with the
Los Angeles Times.
The Britannica Internet Guide gave the Chess Variant Pages a Recommended
(*) rating. About 15% of their reviewed sites receives such a rating; about
1% receives a better rating. This is the website, associated with the Encyclopedia
MGI Guidebook member. Website with links to sites with information on digital publishing, images, etc.
Of some awards, I am more proud of than others. This one falls in the second
category. Majon does not give a link back to my site: that usually costs $599,
but because of the award the fee was reduced to $99. Hm.
These pages also made it to U.S. television - they were mentioned in a program called Cyberlife (I'm told.)
A number of reviews of the website have appeared, amongst others in:
- The Chess Addict. (http://freewind.legend.co.uk/~lhudson/: Link no longer functional.)
