alexlee: when they change to a pawn, they are not automatically out of the game, rather their last bid will carry on until they fall, or win.

Subject: Pawns
If a member changes to a pawn can they now continue to play if they were already in a pond? If so when did this start and was it posted anywhere? Seems like if a rule changes it should have been posted but if it was I can not find where?

To all those that had signed up for my slow ponds in 2011:

rabbitoid spotted that I had mistakenly set them up as 2 day ponds instead of 7 day ponds from March onwards, and was kind enough to let me know. It's impossible to change the days/move after creating a pond (and rightfully so). I figured there's at least a remote possibility that others signed up thinking it were 7 day ponds too (like myself ;)), so I decided to delete the ones were I made the mistake, and recreate them with 7 days. 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience this causes for those that had already signed up. Please sign up again :)

Subject: Re:when BK3.0 comes out
alexlee: Thanks rod03801 and alexlee, I found it.

But the question here is, if two or more people (not multinicks) play together in a pond, is that really the same as "losing on purpose for the goal of boosting ratings" ? That is at least debatable - I imagine team play could take many forms. Why not remove all doubt and put it in the pond rules? Besides, that's the obvious place for users to look if they are in doubt.

pedestrian:
The part of the rules Pedro is refering to are the following:

Each individual who plays on BrainKing is asked to use one, and only one, BrainKing account. Multiple accounts created for cheating in tournaments, games, ratings, or to get around bans on boards are prohibited.

NO CHEATING. This includes using outside programs to help play and *losing on purpose for the goal of boosting ratings.* Your account may be banned, and ratings will be removed.

Pedro Martínez: I'm sure the user agreement is posted somewhere, but I can't find it. Maybe it's just me, be I think it's best if the rules are made as obvious as possible.

Subject: Re:when BK3.0 comes out
pedestrian: If pawns are allowed in ponds, the rules need to be clarified. For instance, there's nothing in the pond rules about people coordinating their moves and/or playing together as a team.

There is no need to do that. The general rules of the User Agreement clearly prohibit such conduct.

pedestrian: hmmm. Are you saying that I could create a pond, create 15 multinics and win the pond with about 100,000 points left.

But I couldn't do that because I would have to ban myself

Vikings: If pawns are allowed in ponds, the rules need to be clarified. For instance, there's nothing in the pond rules about people coordinating their moves and/or playing together as a team. It would be quite easy to have a few friends sign up as pawns and make helpful moves. And only those who follow this board closely have any idea whether this is allowed or not.

paully: I’ve spent the last hour reading all the posts on this subject with a growing sadness.

Pedestrian- Regarding your post that you don’t like it here anymore and you’re finished. Don’t forget the vast majority of members just play their games, don’t take them too seriously and never make a post. Don’t let the vitriol of a small minority disillusion you.

I like to think Fencer’s remarked were written in haste and he regrets them. It is a shame he didn’t issue a quick apology rather than letting things run.

Paully, it’s funny how two people can read something so completely different. I’ve never played either Pedro or Tenuki but Tenuki’s ratings over a large number of games speak for themselves. While Pedro clearly things Tenuki has cheated it is also clear to me that much of this is personal and rather unpleasant.

You can't sign up for any ponds. You say you can? OK, sign up for some and post the pond here so we can see.

I was accused many times and by many people. Always by inept people who don't know how ponds are played though. YOU have now accused me of cheating. I want you to provide more information. Where did I cheat?
