I'm an EGF low dan, playing Go since late 2006. I was active in the community at Sensei's and the former SE-1.0 site shidogo.com, now switched my attention to BCG.SE

I'm involved in the English and German Go community in various way, most prominently I've created a platform for bad Go jokes.

comment Where can I find a good Joseki database?
The Gendai is one of many sources for both senseis/joseki and josekipedia, but I would be very surprised if anyone actually input all of Gendai's content into either database. Further, those databases contain (tons of) information from elsewhere. So they are certainly not equivalent, but rather supplementary.

comment What are good ways to learn to “read” a sequence of moves mentally?
I count tesuji problems to tsumego (I think tsumego translates to (generic) "go problems"), and yes, they are very useful. TimK mentioned Davies' Tesuji book, which I found terrific, particularly for beginners. I actually started learning about tesuji from that book. Some of them are also often seen in games, or (subtly) they are the reason a seemingly obvious move was not played, and it's fun to try and find them. -- I have few experience with Go apps, I only tried a few Android ones and found them so-so at best. I don't have an iOS device, but it's nice to hear there are good apps for that.

comment How can I quickly estimate my level in go by playing against a computer/tablet?
As it is now, it seems this question is too specific and will quickly get outdated. Would you mind rewriting it, for instance along the lines of "How can I quickly estimate my level in Go?", that would allow for more broadly helpful answers, and your particular examples may still be mentioned, possibly with a date or version.
