I have finished 23 games and wish to join the classicists. My NMR rate is at 100% and I have had no surrenders in the last ten games. The one I did have I considered justified at the time!

I’ll try to process this, as well as the other apps from the last month, in the next few days.

I’m on phone so not going through stats now.

Could you explain that surrender you have and why you think it’s justified? How many games ago was that?
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

14 or 15 games ago. It was a hopeless position that England was bound to win and I saw little point in playing on for heart failure. In retrospect, I should have just entered a hold order unit and finished the game but I was not aware then of the penalties for surrendering.

SimonMH,

I am happy to report that you qualify for admission at the Gold level.

The requirements are:
20 or more games finished.
No unjustified surrenders in most recent 15 games.
At least 98% consistency (i.e. no more than 1 in 50 turns missed).
No sanction from the site admin for site rule violation within the last 8 months.

You have completed a total of 31 Rank/NoRank games.
Your last (and only) surrender was 20 games ago. So you have completed 19 games without an unjustified surrender. (Unfortunately, that surrender does affect things as it was a voluntary surrender, with the understanding that it occurred without your realizing the effect it would have on the 'starting point' as far as a Classicist application context goes).
Your consistency rate is immaculate at 100% (1194/1194).
No sanctions.

And I must add, a very impressive solo rate to boot! Congratulations!
An Oldie and Gold Classicist. Moderator for the Classicist group.

Thank you! I had quite forgotten about this.
The solo rate is far more luck than judgment. I'm sure I'll be found out soon :D
