if you could also delete all the tournaments they have created and have not started yet that would be fair too

speachless: Hmm, it's kind of sensitive part of the code and I still didn't have time to make any safe modifications to it.
However, I've just removed all tournament signups of the mentioned users (for tournaments that were not started yet). Please let me know if they manage to sign up for more and I'll try to find time for a more effective solution.

Fencer: dear Fencer. did you find a fix for the bug which allows to brain pawns to join single elimination tournies, even if they have +2000 running games? It still happens so it wasn't fixed yet?

here an example of a newly opened tournament where a brain pawn with +2000 running games was still able to join and start: petty tournament

if you couldn't find a fix for that bug, why don't you just block those 2 or 4 brain pawns which still take advantage from the system without paying?

i don't want to complain, it's just a question. hope you're gonna find some time to answer.

3. Aprilie 2014, 18:34:26
Subiectul: Re: is Brain Pawn better as Brain Rook
speachless: there is a problem with single elimination,  and in the tournament you mentioned there are 2 pawns there that have taken advantage of the system, they both created tons of tournaments  and seem to join any single elimination tournaments, like I said I thought fencer was going to delete them from the tournament board,

speachless: Ultimately, we subscribe to support the site and help its development. If the creator has deserted the site though, I really see no point for people to continue paying for using it. If you are content with the tournament hole and have no problems with your conscience, go ahead, I would say, although not something *I* would do. Of course, fellowships and stairs are out of question, since the stairs do check the game number limit.

ThunderGr: it's not only the case of brain rook joining before they got brain pawn.

in this example the tournament a brainpawn was able to join. this player had already +2000 opened games, so why was it possible for him to start in this running tournament as pawn with +2000 running games?
petty tournament
so this seams for me like i could stop paying for brain rook and then still be able to join open tournaments with single elimination even if i have +2000 or so...?

Justaminute: I agree 100%. I was also wondering about the tournaments mess. However, I think that any limitation about the number of tournaments should go with the ability to save the game types in the template. As it is, you must check one by one all the games you want *every single time*, as they are not saved with the template.

Subiectul: Re: is Brain Pawn better as Brain Rook
beach: I assumed it was people joining lots of tournaments while still being a paying member and then becoming a pawn. If people start thousands of tournaments after becoming a pawn it seems like a strange thing for the "powers that be" not to care about.

The tournament page is a complete mess anyway. I assume this is why there are endless tournaments created by the same people? Making the change would tidy up the tournanment page as well I hope.

speachless:  fencer said about a month ago he was going to fix the problem,  I know it still isn't fixed because several pawns are still taking advantage of being able to create lots of tournaments before they become a pawn play unlimited amounts of games.

Fencer said he would fix the problem as it wasn't fair to us paying members, but so far nothing has been changed  I agree its not fair


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.

Subiectul: is Brain Pawn better as Brain Rook
Hi All
A question. The bug is known that Brain Pawn can join over 2000 games and new tournaments even if they are already Brain Pawn since months...

some player noticed that and stop paying for membership and still join new tournaments.

so should i do the same, 'cause they are taking advantage but no one of the administrators kick them out because of them.

so even if brain pawn have only 10 days vacation per year, maybe it is better to get brain pawn?

ThunderGr: I know I freaked out when I first started playing here and the Go Moku pieces were Xs and 0s and I was like the this? lol Then, I eventually was able to change the pieces to normal ones. Game boards vary with each site so you have to find what works best for you.

Subiectul: Re:
JerNYC: I found it. Thank you. It appears that it will change the background color of all games boards, though. I would like to know for certain if it will work, though, because if it doesn't, I will have to resign the game. It is totally unplayable for me. Perhaps the shogi board should have another default square color. How can anyone play it like that?

31. Martie 2014, 00:38:01
Subiectul: Re:
ThunderGr: When I go into the layout area, I specifically see an option to change the color background. There's a default and then there's a palette where you can pick a color.

30. Martie 2014, 23:05:14
Subiectul: Re:
JerNYC: The layout options get you to your settings layout. There, you can only change the general site layout. For the shogi options, you only have the options to change the size of the pieces, just like the rest of the chess-like games.

30. Martie 2014, 20:38:05
Subiectul: Re:
ThunderGr: Try scrolling down the page below the board to where it says "Layout." Usually, there's an option to make changes.

30. Martie 2014, 09:07:08
Hi all! Is it only me that thinks it is a chore to play Shogi here with this "white pieces over white squares" board on this site? I like shogi but I find it very difficult to play it here. Is there any way someone can change square colors on the board, at least?

This is what has inspired the creator of backgammon  and what design has invested in the construction. ....
At the core of the game is put the time : That 's a tray - symbolizes the unity of the year. Four corners of the box - a symbol of the four seasons . Opposite 2 x 6 compartments inside the panel - are actually 12 months a year. The sum of all pieces of 30 - as is the average number of days in one month. The color of the pieces - black and white , represent day and night. And opposite 2 x 12 units - are 24 hours a day.
