The notice said Brainkings "certificate" had expired, but now no problems on my side.

Aganju: Only the pages which prompt for a password are labelled insecure, if they are not of protocol https. once this barrier is passed Chrome (Firefox too) doesn't care anymore. Until the next upgrade, LOL

Subject: Re:
Carnie: no. Chrome has started to report all non-https sites as 'insecure'. This is not related to anything happening at BK, but a general move in the internet. Security of BK is unchanged; it was never high-security, but there is also not much to lose or steal. Any hacker above twelve would probably focus on pages where there is something steal-worthy.

The future
1. January 2017, 09:39:10
Happy New Year 2017.

As you probably know, BrainKing will be 15 years old this year and it is also the last year when it would have an official support. Many things changed since October 2002 when the site had been launched and I think it's only fair to our members if they know (in advance) what they can or cannot expect.

1) BrainKing is guaranteed to be running at least to the end of 2017. After that, nothing will be guaranteed. For instance, the site could become offline for a longer time, an unexpected error could break some important features, games could timeout for no logical reason, etc. Since BrainKing is quite a mature product and was programmed to self-repair many usual issues, it is not unlikely that none of these scenarios would happen - but still, it's good if people are aware of that.

2) There will be also no refunds for any kind of membership subscription. I will link this post from the Paid Membership section, so everybody would be informed that purchasing a membership is risky and not recommended to people who expect a service that continuously operates at a peak effeciency without any downtime.

3) It is also possible that, starting January 2018, BrainKing could be suddenly taken down without any warning. If it happens, memberships that would be still active will not be cancelled and their counter of remaining days will be stopped during the whole time of inactivity.

winterangels: As far I understood it is not 100% sure yet. Fencer announced that it might be unsupported after 2018. But this is only one possible scenario. option 2 is for Fencer to sell brainking or he might come up with a third option when time comes, but yes it's possible that the site will run unsupported from 2018 on. It's on you to decide if you take the risk to pay for one year and if BK will work till then.... but maybe I'm wrong, it's just how I understood Fencers announcment

That is an easy fix for Fencer. If he doesn't see this here, you could send him a PM. He typically acts on those.

Can this tourney get a kick start or simply be shut down by Fencer? It's stopped somehow. Or is messing with it impossible? Dice Poker Tournament # 4

winterangels Since the uncertainty of this site a lot of people have not renew their membership which is understandable. There are also many others who would like someone to pay for a membership.
I think you have to accept that you can play in this game site for free albeit limited.

Marshmud: They are both tie-breakers. The rule below in SE tournaments, and S-B in regular tourneys. In other words, Thom27 is correct in his original post.

3. June 2017, 23:08:43
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Pedro Martínez: Yes my friend but is that not a BK rule and have nothing to do with the S-B?

Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: This only applies to "single elimination" tournaments.

"Warning! If a normal game ends as a draw, the player with lower BKR would advance to the next round (in case of equal BKRs, the one who didn't start the game - the black player in most games). If you want to avoid such situations, create this tournament with 1 win matches instead."

3. June 2017, 15:06:32
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: I don't find a rule anywhere that in case of equal ponts and S-B, the rating decides. But here I found an example of a shared victory in this case. So it seems to be a bug or glitch.

Maybe fencer will find time to fix it.

2. June 2017, 18:54:11
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Thom27: After further investigation I stand behind my original statement. In fact you should of won that tournament.

2. June 2017, 01:55:23
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated I thought the Sonneborn-Berger system is used to specify an order of players with the same number of points and is based on a theory that points earned with a stronger opponent are more valuable than with a weaker one. So there should be no tie unless both players have the same BKR.

2. June 2017, 01:42:43
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated The actual S-B total sum has been incorrect for some time but the order has been correct. I was explained in the past that if a tie the lower rated player wins. However I think it was in a prize tournament I ran and fencer paid it out that way. Your correct there is a bug .I've noticed the sum of the S-B total has been incorrect in many of the tournaments I've been in

2. June 2017, 01:25:36 
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Marshmud: Actually it does look like a bug, the S-B should be 33 for both. Ratings don't matter for the S-B.

S-B is just you add the points for each win they have.

Each players had 1 win against a player that had 9 points.(x1 = 9 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 6 points (x2 = 12 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 4 points (x2 = 8 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 0 points (x2 = 0 points)
Each player had 2 wins against a player that had 2 points (x2 = 4 points)

So each player should have ended up with a 33 S-B rating.

1. June 2017, 19:26:53
Subject: Re: S-B wrongly calculated
Thom27: Not necessary. If tosty had a lower bkr when this tournament started (feb 2012) and since you two split your match the player with the lower bkr wins. Both of you also won all your other matches.

Subject: S-B wrongly calculated
In this tournament table the S-B values are wrong. Me and tolsty2002 should have the same value, since we have the same match results.

I don't like slow players but they don't cheat, they just play differently. I'm an optimist, I renewed my subscription.
