WatchBot is able to observe only about 25 games simultaneously, and there are usually more standard games in progress on FICS, it uses some kind of scoring to pick the most interesting games. Exact details of the algorithm change from time to time, but in general:
the slower the game, the more interesting it is, the higher rating of the players, the better, games with clocks 45+45 and 60+15 obtain additional plus, games between computers are avoided and games between human and computer are considered to be less interesting than games between humans.
I'm not sure if there is anything else we need to do - it picks up all TL games as far as I know. Since we have a 45+45 time control, I'm hoping it will pick up most of the games here.
I'll see if I can reach out to the programmer for watchbot to include our games.
BethanyGrace: Thanks Roy! Everyone please play your games using the back up server. Since this is the final round, you may have an extension week to facilitate scheduling
