    I'm a little confused on one thing.......

    Take for instance Standard Stairs (Backgammon). There are currently 2 steps. Is there a way to see ALL of the players on step 1 AND step 2? Rignt now, you can either see both steps, or see every one on step 1. Or will the problem become moot once everyone starts getting onto more steps?

    In each stairs, it shows all active games - but would be interesting to see completed games also - see who was playing who & who won and such. Maybe not the complete history of games, but maybe the last month - or last 50 games completed in the stairs or something. (or all the games if possible)

    WizardII: GoldToken has a platform type ladder where groups of people share one level. I haven't played it - it's only for paid members so I've no idea what kind of experience it provides.

    WizardII: Every system has its pros and cons. I like this one :-)

    Subject: Re: Stairs versus Ladders
    WizardII: Aye. Instead of grabbing the legs of those above and trying to clamber over them it's more a question of seeing who's below you and stomping on their hands as they try to reach upwards (or booting your peers off the platform). ;-)

    Subject: Stairs verses Ladders
    One of the biggest difference I can see with the Stairs rules as compared to the rules I have seen for ladders is how one moves up and down.

    1. Nobody can be on the same step/ladder position at the same time.
    2. If you win you take the position of that person on the ladder, and everyone shifts down.

    Not to say that what I have seen is better is what I am used to.

    Subject: Request: BKR, Challenge-counts
    Could the Stairs challenge show the estimated BKR change?

    I'll also vote for a challenges-made/accepted column on the player's stairs page. It's hard to know which ones I'm fully booked in.

    dmk: That would be good to know quickly which stairs you have challenges to be made - maybe even on the profile page - maybe a (1/0) for 1 challenge made, 0 challenges against you) or something similar.

    dmk: You can find your steps here or on Profile pages.

    Couple of requests:
    1) a page that shows which stairs we are free to make challenges in
    2) adding the steps to the main page, similar to the x best BKRs that appear

    awesome job, keep it up

    Niki: There's a link to Stairs under New Game, Waiting Games, Tournaments.. That page has a link to the Rules.

    Niki: Doesn't the "show rules" link work? Or have a look at the Server News.

    Is there somewhere where I can find basic information on what the Stairs are all about please ?

    Subject: requests & question
    1) show the stairs in the game lists in the "event" column
    2) show all ongoing games in the stairs page
    what happens with the games when a player leaves the stairs? (the help page clarifies that qu only for retirement)
