MadMonkey: If that is the clapping hands I can't see them lol. I can a see three pink somethings that I can't tell what they are. Wow guess what it has come back to normal now. I can see the three clapping hands now. There were several other square boxes that I could see what they were. No I have not been drinking, I don't drink alcohol.
Otsikko: Re: Is there a nasty bug in the evaluation of multi-game matches?
Carpe Diem: I know that display error, but that was under different circumstances (I think when you tie or so). of course it could be the same effect here. Unfortunately, I tossed the event message; I'll check the next time.
Aganju: I think what you'll find is that although it claims that you lost and shows rating points going down for you, if you look closer you'll find that the names don't match the rating points, and that your points actually go up.
So it works something like this. Let's say you and I played, and you won the match but I won the last game. Let's also say your rating was 2100 and mine was 1900 before the game. It will say something like Carpe Diem won, 2100 (+13), and Aganju lost 1900 (-11). I actually lost the 11 I should have, and you gained the 13, it just gives the wrong names in the message.
This bug's been there since I started playing here. It's simply a display error, not a problem with rating points.
I think I found a nasty bug in the evaluation of matches that are set up for a fixed amount of games. Here is a match that was for 5 games, and I won it 3:2: Fevga (Aganju vs. Doris) However, the fifth/last game of the match went to my opponent (so I lead 3:1, and then it ended 3:2 - still a win for me). The event message I got, however, declared that *I lost*, and deducted some points from my rating (and gave rating points to my opponent).
I would guess that the code uses the result from the last game for its decisions, as - typically - the winner of the last game is the winner of the match - but not for this type of match.
Otsikko: Re: Should brainking.com leave or stay on the internet?
ketchuplover: The fate of one's possessions is not decided by public vote but by the will of the owner. Asking for a public vote for brainking.com to leave the internet is like me asking for a public vote for your PC to leave the physical World.
So, some people have to learn to recognize their limits and the rights of others, in my opinion.
Bernice: You made an assumption by stating " it was nearly sold but Flip wanted way too much money." Surely the price would have been mentioned long before it was "nearly" sold? So how do you know that Flip wanted way too much money? Someone must have told you?
I got here 25th November 2002, the site was VERY new then (ony a couple of months & only had a few games). Its sad sometimes to look round or at my friends list and see how many players are no longer with us, ive met some great people here Still, as long as the sites here, i guess i will be, i just hope someone comes along who either joins Filip or takes it over just so the site will carry on and hopefully fix current bugs or better improve it. Right, thats my little bit.....back to games
