Info About Titled Chess Players and Games

On ICC, players may have FIDE titles of GM, WGM, IM, WIM, FM, and WFM. Sending who T will show the online titled chess players in a console. Lantern can issue (as of version 5.50) this command from Actions / Show Titled Players Online, in which case it will appear in the M0 (main console) tab.

The output of the who command may show special symbols before a player's name. In particular, the ^ means that player is in a game. Double clicking on a player's name will highlight it in the console and produce a menu. From this context menu the user can observe or follow the player, and access their profile and history. (The user can also see online players with a specific title, e.g., by sending who &GMs. Consult ICC's help who for the details.)

The command games *T returns games with at least one titled player. Correspondingly, observe *T opens some game involving a titled player. (Note that the T is capitalized and the * is not used with the who command.)
