The "single online identity" approach...

Hey all! I know this topic has been discussed from time to time in a varitey of threads not designed to deal with it, but here goes again. I just got through reading an article in a prominent computer gaming mag that "inadvertently" addresses our situation here with multiple nicks and the potential ...

Oh MAN!!! Is this topic getting a LOT of attention! ...I wonder if it really DESERVES it?!! 8) Well, here goes with MY 2 cents worth again (4.5 cents with inflation? ). I generally say GGA at the end of MOST games, sometimes just to be polite. I have NO objection to someone who does NOT wish to say ...

Yup! A little off-topic, but a good point Spooky! I often have a difficult time believing that peeps REALLY have no idea that certain things are TT, even after they have been spoken to about it. But the GGA thing is almost hilarious! If the game isn't actually a GOOD game, then I am being untruthful...

...I don't think Gypsy was referring to the bot's rating in the sense that she was making a comparison to human players, but there ARE programs out there where you can play against computer opponents and get a GOOD competitive game. In Bicycle Card Games, for example, you can select a variety of com...

Ummmm........... One question? What on earth are u DOING playing Suicide w/bots? That isn't quite the point Spooky - although there have been times when I have found it difficult to find a game, and would like to have a "casual" game with bots just for something to do. But as Gypsy pointed out, bot...

This is kind of a disturbing thread. I have not heard anything about a guide cheating, but if it IS true, then I don't see why it should paint ALL guides as "bad". I am quite certain that if such a thing DID happen and it was proven to be true, then SCE would most certainly not tolerate it, and woul...

Man! Just had a prime example of why the ratings calculatioons needs to be revised!!! Played a game with two peeps who were listed as provies (didn't ask them if they had recently reset...) and won a VERY hard-fought game, with the cards being pretty evenly distributed throughout the hands. All four...

You could edit the image to reduce the size of the background (cropping would probably work, and is available in almost ANY basic image-editing program), and then edit your message and replace the image with the new one.

...Or you could simply edit out the image altogether, or delete the post! 8)

Hey meizinnia! You brought up a point that was in the back of my mind when ever I posted on this topic but just never seemed to get around to verbalizing - one of the BIGGEST abuses of resetting that NO ONE can dispute is when a peep deliberately throws games to a buddy, and then resets to get back ...

Yup! Goes back to a thread that I started a while ago about TT. People need to be educated, not only about WHAT TT is, but also about what effect it has on the game as a whole, how even unintentional TT can be perceived by others, and how TT affects the enjoyment of an otherwise good game for all in...
