What do the red and green dots beside the times in the "Time Left" column mean? They don't match up with the ones indicating the player is online, but I haven't been able to figure it out or find an explanation anywhere.
Aganju: Yes, I totally agree. I think it's the same for all the countries, time is necessary to discover everything. Myself, I don't know all the beautiful places in France. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip here.
Mélusine: I agree. Paris is great, and one of the best experiences in the world - but it doesn’t represent the French countryside very well. That is a very different - and also great - experience. You cannot see ‘France’ in one visit, there are too many distinct parts with their own highlights. I have been traveling to France for over forty years, over and over to different places, and there is still so much I haven’t seen. (You probably can guess I’m a big fan of France, but really, I’m not overselling it)
Bernice: French isn’t an easy language. There are many tourists in Paris. This city is interesting for monuments, museums, and art in general. And also if you want to go to Disneyland near Paris. If you go there, taste the « baguette », a typical french bread. Otherwise, in my opinion, we eat better in the regions of France where the culinary traditions stay.
Bernice: Depending on the region, food and drink is different. For example, I don't like food from the east of France, because they cook with a lot of cheese. In the southwest where I live, it's more about seafood because we're close to the ocean. Depending on what you like, you have to choose where to go. Very few Australians visit France.
Bernice: In my country, we can wish a happy new year until the 15 of January. And from the 1st Sunday of January, we eat the king cake (epiphany cake) until the end of January. In short, we eat and drink the whole month of January.
Carpe Diem: since I logged in first in 2011, after Carpe, and have numbers over 2000 it can't be that it counts only old games. also, the numbers change over time, so something is calculated - just no the right thing. I guess a quick look at the code would easily find the issue, but we don't have the code...
Aganju: That's a plausible theory. And there's no reason the offset has to be one - IE it could be players with an ID 10, 100, 2567 more or less than our own. :) Something only Fencer would be able to determine. Clandestine could also be on to something, but it would indeed have to be a long-standing bug.
Aganju: I thought it just stopped working years ago. But since Carpe has zeros across the board and first logged in sometime in 2009, that would mean it hasn’t worked since then. My totals are just over 7800 completed games under statistics. But I can see by my profile that I’m closing in on 21,000 completed games.
Although, I would venture a guess that I completed 7800 games around 2011 not 2009. But it’s possible.
Carpe Diem: i spent several hours yesterday, downloaded all my data, and tried around how the wrong numbers could be made up, but found no way. It must be accessing the wrong fields or something, because there is no way to add up any combination of my completed games to get to this total. And after seeing your 0 0 0 0 - it seems it is looking at something completely different. Maybe some other player's data - the one with the id next to you?
