  • Phone Flashlight

    Just looked at the new GM Part I. I was hoping to see the phone flashlight explicitly either allowed or disallowed, as different rulings have been made by the game committee in past years. For 2017-18 it was allowed. For 2018-19 it was initially disallowed, then finally allowed. It would be great to see an early definitive decision. It can be very helpful with computer vision, when we don't know in advance how the ambient light will be at a tournament.

    I think it would be great to simply allow a light to be allowed to aid computer vision with minimal restrictions. Perhaps limit it to under s certain lumen strength and not focused. Also perhaps require it to be on for the duration of the anonymous match and pointed forward. At any rate, rules should prohibit using any light to intentionally desensitize the opponents cameras.
