CUTwC and tiddlywinks news

Latest notices

Tiddlywinks is normally a game played with a group of people sociably standing around small tables in a nice warm room; this aspect of CUTwC meetings has obviously been rendered impractical by COVID-19 safety concerns. As such, for the last few months, CUTwC members have been "meeting" on Zoom.

During the Michaelmas term, official CUTwC meetings will be continuing on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm on Zoom for the time being (see the mailing list for details), with individual in-person games happening when possible and allowed under official guidance.

Site updates now inside a <details> block to stop it dominating actual news.
Made glow versions of pot of winks, and favicons.
Safari appears to underestimate the glow radius required for the "pot of winks"; this is a shame, because it's nicer to have the glow effect around the icon rather than part of it. For consistent rendering (and for the favicons), generated the icon with the glow included as well. The home icon now uses this version (and is a little bigger), and favicons now use this rather than the Pot Rampant (if you empty your browser cache); it's a little dark, and may get a further tweak.
Used the "pot of winks" logo (with Cambridge Blue glow) as a home button.
I realised it looks a little like a series of levels and could be interpreted as history. Then I thought "it works on several levels. Heh." (Surprisingly Google image search doesn't seem to think it looks like an existing image of anything, which means other companies rejected it as ugly.) I also put one of the text CUTwC logos on the home page for a bit of branding.
Moved the logos to the main Club page.
There's a redirect, so old links should work. Feedback appreciated.
Navigation buttons now have a more plastic highlight, and div borders are now subtly polychromatic (to be hideous but also winks-specific).
Neumorphism (3D shadow) is an alternative, but doesn't work all that well on a light mat-coloured background; the section headers do use it, but it's very subtle.
Updated the front-page slideshow for the new President.
I'm a bit worried about it chewing cycles, so don't leave it open indefinitely unless you want a flat battery. I think it's done the recommended way, but animations are just expensive. The rest of the site is fortunately static.
Updated the results archive (back to 1996, with some gaps partly filled from WW).
If anyone can help fill in the gaps, that would be appreciated.

The ETwA National Singles (and ETwA Congress) has been postponed until the COVID-19 situation is resolved and it is considered safe for the community to play.
Watch this space and www.etwa.org, and please stay safe.
