Fencer: I just checked the link, I assumed if you posted the link, it was the correct one.Adelle - Skyfall? not the link I sent, but I do appreciate a good sense of humour.Can you please correct it with the 10cc video link I sent.
Thanks for your patience players invitation to me for games but now I can not accept them until it was paid member.Thank you all participated in discussion. According to me is not possible in any event to create bug appears and igra4ka be recorded . since Igra4ka is one of the organizers of the Bulgarian discussion site probably enjoys some advantages , that knows the program code of system.Friendship is friendship , but the cheese is money / Bulgarian proverb / .As is so eager to play in tournaments to pay like everyone.Interesting why not respect the organizers of the Bulgarian company and website on brazen respect to all registrants in BrainKing. I suggest that the organizers of the Bulgarian discussion site to change and reprogram the system with more safeguards to no such problems in the future.

Fencer: Hi Fencer We have also the issue in Crowded- and Cloning-Backgammon. The additional or cloned pieces aren't counted for a gammon if still outside at the end of the game. It means i got 2 points instead of 3 or 5 for a gammon. BK makes a difference if the pieces outside are catched or cloned/additional... Do you have a possibility to fix that?
Hmmm, it's really sad (but not too surprising) to see that some people will always try to exploit the system. Very well, it can be fixed this way:
1) A user cannot have more than, say, 100 tournaments in the "open" section of the Tournaments page. Do you want to create more? OK but wait until some of your tournaments start.
2) If a user membership expires, tournaments created by them (in the "open" status) will be automatically deleted, except the prize ones with prizes already provided.
3) Regarding the single eliminations tourneys, that might be a bug because pawns should not be allowed to sign up for another tournament if they are already playing (or signed up) another one. But the code is really old (8 years?) so I am not sure about that. I'll look at it.
Anything else? Sorry, I am totally consumed by other projects so I could easily miss other issues mentioned in this conversation.
beach: "Now the tourney section is a joke, you cannot find any tournaments and they stay on the list for 30 days after they start. "
Actually you can find new tournaments still, you just have to be a bit more creative in your search terms than before.
Every day when I log in (when I remember anyway!) I now visit the tournament page, and then modify the "Created in last" to 2 days (I am not sure what it means by 1 day or 2 days...is it the last 24 hours for a day, or the last Czech time zone day. Therefore I pick 2 days).
The list is usually(!) very short, and I never have to scroll to see what else is out there....
coan.net: lol I spoke to fencer months ago when I noticed the problem, and ask if he could fix it, He told me he would try but that he was very busy with other things. Nothing ever got done so I gave up asking
There may be a bug then. I know in regular tournaments it will kick them out, but single elimination tournaments were created after the "normal" tournament, so possible that pawn/free game "check" isn't there.
I know Fencer hasn't been in the programming "mood" lately, but I'll make sure he know about this bug, maybe there will be a quick fix that he can make.
that's the same thing that AlterMann did before he became a pawn he created 365 tournaments !! Now the tourney section is a joke, you cannot find any tournaments and they stay on the list for 30 days after they start. This way they never have to buy a membership don't really think its fair to those that do
The Col: I feel your pain. Though I'm sure he's busy with BrainKing ver.3.9080706, and he'll get to your problem and the problems of others then. Just over a year and a half ago...he was 30% done with that project. lol
Well, it seems indifference is the culprit in regards to my profile issue.The mods have actually been fairly helpful in trying to rectify the issue, but it seems the only one capable of addressing the problem is Fencer, and he doesn't seem to care.So there you have it, is it that important to me that the issue be fixed? not really , I'm here to play board games.I do find it does give me an indication of the interest level of the site owner in customer satisfaction though.I have never met the man or had words with him positive or otherwise , he was alerted to the issue weeks ago though, and I have not receiived any communication regarding the issue from him. Interestingly, there was no issue accepting my money when I recently extended my membership.I guess we live and learn folks.I will not bring up this issue further.
Aganju: That is not how it works. The system records the times in both of your games in your records as if the game occurs between two players in the same time zone.
Next time that an opponent of yours plays a move in a game of yours, check out the clock in the upper right of your screen and then click on that game and you will see that it was played only a few seconds earlier, regardless of which time zone your opponent was playing in.
2 games with FC: 21days/18hours/31days23hours - Last move of my opponent - 2 march 2014 1:56am. My timed out - 2 march 2014 8:30am. - Last move of my opponent - 2 march 2014 1:56am. My timed out - 2 march 2014 7:40am. Why? I should have minimum 18 hours for move
Bernice: Wow, I was just looking at a wiki page on GT for missing players. Nothing to do with the woman mentioned here, but just in general. It's always a little troubling when someone you've gotten used to on a game site suddenly (and often times, inexplicably) vanishes. I'll never forget about this one guy. I hated him as an opponent but we were such fierce rivals. Many of our games ended in draw. I was always up for the challenge. Then he wrote on his profile that he was embarking on a short vacation. Didn't think anything of it. One month passes. Another month passes. He's timing out in our games. This is odd because he was paid up well in advance. He was such a methodical and regular player. Never showed up again. Four years already. I always had a bad feeling something befell him. I'm glad Barb has such nice friends to think of her and keep others posted. Hope she recovers soon.
