About that game - it SHOULD NOT have been ended as there was still a chance for a tie game - as white still had a piece on their home position. So if black could have made it to pin that piece, then the game would end as a tie/draw. [In this game, black was in no position to do that..... but that is in the rules]

All white needed to do was move that last home piece and the game should have ended automatically, so I'm not sure why they needed Fencer to finish it when you could have done it simply yourself.

Game rules:!g=7521441

"The only exception is if the opponent still has checkers on his starting point, since in this case his own mother checker is still threatened. A game in which both mothers are pinned is a draw."

speachless: Why don't you do what you say you are going to do? You can ignore me, but you want to have the last word. And it is you twisting the facts to suit you, to make out you are being victimised.

Subject: Re: Has this happened to anyone?
crosseyed: sometimes ignoring you is not as easy, since you turn the facts as you want around, depends on your purpose... but even if your starting question is about something else, you manage often enough to turn it into a fight... i should have learned from the past that it is easier to convince someone that p.m. is a.m. instead of trying to go out of any kind of discussion with you.... well now that you have your answers concerning our plakoto game, i hope you stop going on and on with this discussion, bye and dream on

speachless: I thought you were going to ignore me? It is obvious that want to have the last word so to speak. I asked that my posts be removed and you can check that, since you like to solve puzzles, ask the monitor who deleted yours and Brian's posts, as my posts were still there that morning in discussion board. This was the date 22. May 2016, 01:37:53
rod03801 put that he had hidden/remove two people's posts. So in fairness I asked that mine be removed.
Hopefully this problem won't arise again regarding bugs .One thing for is sure you love to exaggerate.

Subject: Re: Has this happened to anyone?
crosseyed: if you can count 1+1, it wouldn't at all be necessary for you to pose any of this questions.
after all you complained about me and the administrator, that we didn't inform you before i asked for correction and before the admin corrected the obvious bug. so even in the future, i refuse to chat with you on any games, if a manual correction will be needed from an admin, than you will find out why on your own, i don't feel guilty for not communicate with you on running games, since you offended me several time only for having another oppinion as yours. and to clarify it, the admin some months ago deleted some of your attacks to me, so now you clearly can't follow up anymore what you through on my face through discussion boards.

so no, i will refuse to even inform you, when again a manual correction will occure again.

speachless: I won't lose any sleep over you ignoring me. I now know that the game does have a bug. And had you bothered to let me know this, this discussion would not have taken place.

crosseyed: well i decide now it doesn't make any sense for me to reply to any of your arguments. so your question was concerning our plakoto game. i gave you the answer. i try now to ignore you, everything else is a waste of time for me

speachless: Let's get the facts right you started the argument and had a go at me because I made comment about someone and you did not like it. The only time I picked you up about your English was that I stated that in England we spell speechless differently to you. So don't go making a mountain over mole hill making out that I have been very unkind to you. At the time your posts and the other person was deleted and because I considered it unfair I asked that my posts be deleted too which they were as I considered that I had overstepped the mark. So don't exaggerating what really happened.
I was not sure it was a bug regarding playing plakoto when I had pinned the mother piece.
I did asked Beach about it when I pinned her mother piece and the game did not end, eventually it did complete and I won that game. So I thought there was something else that meant that the game had to be continued.

10. December 2016, 00:44:56
Subject: Re: Has this happened to anyone?
crosseyed: well however you feel about it, you knew this bug in plakoto sometimes happen, right? most all of the time it function very well.
and no i don't feel i need to be polite when it comes to you as in the past you offended me directly, mocking around about my insufficient english knowledge, etc. etc. so no, i feel you should have count 1+1 together but you expected courtesy from me and an administrator. well, i expected courtesy before you attacked me several times on public chats, just because you had another opinion. so no, i don't feel i need to be nice or polite or whatever to you, if i wish, i can ignore you, so easy!

10. December 2016, 00:37:20
Subject: Re: Has this happened to anyone?
speachless: I have had several games where I have pinned someone's piece and the game did not end. So this proves that there is fault in this game. Therefore we should be made aware of it and Fencer should rectified the fault. And yes I think it would have been courteous for you or Fencer to explain why the games finished like it did. I would have done that to you had it been me that had pinned your mother piece..

crosseyed: there is no reason why an administrator would need first to consult you before correcting a bug, since i pinned your mother piece without ending the game automatically. as i noticed after i won, that the game just passed the move to you, without that the game ended automatically as usually expected, so i wrote to an admin asking to end the game manually. as you expected to loose according the plakoto rules, it is not necessary that anyone contacts you first...

Clandestine 1: Thank you for letting me know. Okay the link does not work but it clear to see that the game was finished by an administrator.
Does this work now? 7521441
I would like to know which administrator finished the game without consulting me first. Having just checked the staff there are only two administrators and one has not been in the site since April. So that leaves Fencer.

Someone in this tournament ought to message Fencer so that he can deduct 5 brains from the creator's account to start the tourney.

I apologize in advance, I don't completely understand, are these games rated or not when it states "Unrated games (no BKR will be affected by this tournament): no"

Unrated means "No"
(no BKR will be affected by this tournament): means "Unrated" "No"
no means "Yes:?
Please explain - Rated or Unrated? Lol

Subject: Re: tournments At first blush it looks like a problem, and maybe it is, I don't know yet, but it is worth pointing out that every single tournament (as of now) is on that very page. There are no tourneys on page 2.

Perhaps the system is designed to make things hard to see "regular" tourneys if there are even more brain tourneys than right now, but there is no evidence right now of that.

For now we just have to scroll much farther to the bottom than usual to see "regular tournaments".
