Fair point Pete.

Thanks to all my opponents. It's been great fun.

Thanks also to Pete who whatever our differences has done an amazing job with the League.

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

There will be warnings before a sanction. I'm not willing to discuss the details of this as it could be used to try and manipulate things. The aim is to find a balance between preventing cheating and false positives. We agree it was too far one way, we just want to be careful we don't go too far th...

Oh please, get real. Ok, I'll rename the club just because one or two PC people make an issue of it and, just for you - not!
Hold the line Noissy :D

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

I categorically deny using this method to unfairly grab a disproportionate number of Wooden Spoons in the DL. I know there are rumors that the number of last place finishes and being regulated to a lower division could not be achieved through natural incompetence but rest assured each and every hum...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

Okay Iain

Given the system is moving to a wholly automated one I guess that is as good as we are going to get.

Thanks for the clarification.

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

That is the only bit of the otherwise reassuring update that worried me. The fact that "Repeat offenders" only get bans of increasing length after they have been caught is a huge No.No. If you are a repeat offender you should be permanently banned. End of story. Better Pete but certainly not "perfe...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

The thing that surprised us, was when we looked in to banning them, 4 had already been banned, one of which was dkalenda, the other 3 in July. Can one assume that those other three have received a permanent ban? I hope so. Also, I like your new system. It's the player's responsibility to have a rel...

Not true. First he will get a fair trial. Only then will he be shot :wink: (Sometimes it's good to be able to laugh at yourself)😁 It's a fair cop, but Society is to blame.

Re: The Wargamers Club for Gentlemen (WGCG)

I am sure its a great club.

It's ethos sounds great.

Facebook makes it a no go for me though.

If you don't mind Facebook I can't see why folks wouldn't give it a go.

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

So here's a funny thing...I just had a paired tournament game fall over on me with a fatal exception, so I've reported it to Slitherine with a screen shot of the error message and sent a message to my opponent explaining what has happened (Pete I copied you on it as I thought you may find it amusin...

last time this link was posted I believe it had zero impact here

It relies upon having to have a Facebook account.

I am talking about an instance where (like dkalenda) cheating has been established and a player is given a warning and allowed to continue playing MP (like dkalenda was).

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

I wouldn't join a tourney where a reload would mean an automatic loss as I feel that's too extreme a penalty for a rare but unpreventable occurrence. I wouldn't run a tournament on that basis either. :wink: I think there should be some threshold, which Slitherine could determine based on their hist...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

Amongst all the philosophising and theories I would actually like to hear from people who have had to reload their turn. Is this a really scarce occurrence? How often does this happen? My own guess is that for people with slow internet connections and wireless internet it could happen like 1 in 50 ...

Re: dkalenda has been expelled from the tournament for multiple re-loading of turns during his matches . . .

It would be like a player of a miniatures game redoing a move or turn. It is strictly forbidden unless your opponent says it is okay. It's not like that at all. This example is of a situation where the player makes a move and then decides to make anothe rmove. It is intentional. The situation we're...

Re: The Wargamers Club for Gentlemen (WGCG)

The 'Gentlemen' refers to the behaviour acceptable in the club. It is because most trolls appear to be male in the wargaming World, in my experience. We do in fact have a lady in the club and it hasn't deterred many people coming through our doors. Maybe take a look instead of making petty comments...
