As there was a fair on in our town, I took a few hours off to go have some fun.

hmm rebel i guess i know who you are i guess the way it was that you disrespected me through out the whole tourney i have no problems with other players or anyone else as i been tding out of hardwood close to 11 years and you the only one complains leave my name out of it. you are the one causing the problems and if you dont like the way the tourney is ran or play wont you complain to silvercreek you have their email just in the future leave my name out of it even when a guide came in you still disrespected me i didnt say anything then and not through the whole tourney.

Don't give rebel any mind.... he showed who he is, and you have everyone's support. People don't realize that tourney hosts and guides are volunteers, and without volunteers, there would be no tourneys (guide hosted or otherwise). I would have to assume that if someone's purpose in life is to come into this site to harass hosts and guides, they don't really have a happy life and need to take their frustrations out on others. They would kick their dog if they had one.

I had someone in my tourney recently giving me grief, too, about petty things like the fact my wife plays in the tourney too. It upset me at the time, too, but really I know I am not doing anything wrong, and if someone is so motivated to come in there to try to affect others in this way, it really speaks to the kind of person they are, not you.

I have not seen that person come back since then, and I hope you experience the same.

No, he won't be returning..........We don't need any negative players interrupting the tourney, Luvcookies does a great job of td'ing, and to speak like that to her was un necessary, and I do apologise to Lyn for not being able to attend.
This player went out of his way to cause disruption and annoy Luv, which, to her credit she ignored, he should not have been seated.

Hello all here,

OMG, it seems I'm the Devil in person !!!
Of course I am, just telling the truth...

Went in tourney just to have a look if it exists anymore...
Wasn't the first aggressive... I just reacted back telling the truth...
Does this count as a meant disruption ? I don't think so...

Anyway, peace on Earth please !!! Easy to blame customers instead of
having a look on reality...

Some say,"nobody ever claimed about the tourney"...
For sure, nobody claimed because most had warnings & were sushed...
But lots never came again to play... This is too sad !!!

Simple question all should ask themselve:

"why did the Backgammon Tourney collapse from 60 to 6 or 8 people ?"

So, why blame me? Telling the truth ? indeed, I'll ever do...
As well I was a faithful customer, as well I was so upset seing the all thing collapse...

This is not right!!! Greaters & Guides should be there to increase the fun...
Keeping as much more customers they can in Faithful trade & taking care...
Trying to rise new ones... (as it should be)
& not just being there to show well "I've got the Power" !!! this is rubish for Silver Creek...

So, maybe I did it the wrong way round... Too stupid French guy...
Having my word, even if rude... just tell me why?
Ever trusted my first correspondent... Greater or Guide... no way, no answer...
Or POWER mode "shut up!" made me upset & reacting... Latin way... sorry

I warned, reported recently the Support Department. They wanna me to report here.

Got a nice answer about investigating... Final reaction from main office...
Lets see who was wright or wrong... In case of there's an investigation, I'll be fair...

If any thing I did wrong, I'll go down on my knees & ask for apologies...
What else more could I do ?

My thoughts are : I'm just the top showing part of the customers iceberg...
Lots just got rid, because they weren't well considerated...

But I love the job developpers did for most of games... Great job!!!
They are really close to real boards !!! Bless the team. & what a waste!!!

So, why giving power to people without having any survey on their results ?

Even if they do it for free, they should be happy to have loyal customers...
make them happy & recommanding friends to come in the mood...

I really can't understand such kind of behaviour...
"I've got the power, Im a Queen/King !!!"
"I rule the thing, you have to shut up!!!"

This is crap for your business...

Bless the 98% of Greaters & Guides who do well for free, making Silver Creek well known...
Giving time for free, never asked for any thanks, just doing it for fun... never claim...
100% square & relaible...

But the 2% left, doing politics for power, killing other nice Greaters & Guides,
making allegations they use several computers for rising ratings...
Claiming customers are rubish & so on... but they ever show well...
Claiming innocent... the customer had bad behaviour !!!
These few will kill the sharing mood & the fun... just to rule the POWER...
(strange kind of power, stupid issues)

By the way they make customers flee from you...
Remember : 60 in tourney 2 years ago... 6 to 8 now...
(this is an evidence!!!)

that's really sad !!! but it's a reality...

Bless some Guides & Greaters who asked me no going in politics...
They did their best for Silver Creek... trying to keep me of in shy mood...
I tryed... in truth... OK... "I'll stay quiet... lets see what'll happen..."

But what I said 2 years ago happened... TOURNEY is dead...
Can't even have any fun in Trivia... & I was blamed I've got the answers...
(one more evidence) did I ever won any trivia?

(so stupid from the Tourney ruler !!! She knows I'm French & by the way rubish in American or English history or sports)
What was her point ? Paranoid mode about power ? Jaelous because my fiancée was doing the Trivia?
too stupid... made me upset once more...

I just hope my reports will be taken in consideration for further best Tourney managing...
& for the best care on customers rising...

Lots, just escaped or fleed... I couldn't because I still beleive Tourney is a great way to
make customers faithful... as long they are welcome... oooppsss...

Looks like I wasn't... as 60 - 8 = 52 others weren't... oooppssss...

Does it mean something? go on facts, guys...

& so sorry I finally had my word here... I was asked not to do from some great ones...
Bless them... (hugs, true ones...)

But Support Department allowed & asked me to do...
so, I did... In constructive ways I hope... for Tourney's future.

In case I was rude or insulting anyone, just let me know...
I'll be open to any suggestion about my typing...
(French ways sometimes don't fit... lol)

Kind regards to all the true ones

Maybe, rebel, there is a language and culture barrier that made it harder to tell your intent from how you were perceived. That aside, I am sure many French people would not want that used as an excuse for taking your frustrations on a volunteer tourney host. TD's and guides are not to be punching bags for those who are frustrated with Silver Creek, and you must understand that, no matter how justified you feel in your position and regardless of how many legitimate points you might have as to why you are frustrated, you may not take the liberty to interfere with the running of a tourney or to berate its host.

As I said before in the other post, these people are volunteers who would otherwise be players like you who want to make the hardwood games a good, fun place to come play. Don't attack your allies. I think you could gain some power if you would just turn your desire for improvement around in a constructive way. Not everyone here thinks things are perfect, and if the majority of people agree with you, positive changes could come about. You can attract more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Hi cousin,
Salut cousin...
(ooppss... for us all Canadians are cousins, blood line)

Lovely to have an oppinion about my posts...

You are wright about some doing the best for free...
Lots do well... as I said... bless them...

My point is some do wrong... & kill the mood...
"You can attract more flies with honey than with vinegar"
indeed... so, Silver Creek should survey what some really do...

Even if most of them do true well... the 2% wrong kills the mood & reputation...
Makes sense ?

Friendly regards,
>DF

The intent of this thread isn't to hash out personal stuff.

Just to some it up, Rebel, Luvcookies interpreted your actions has unpleasant and is asking you not to continue to interact with her in the same way.

Done deal, lets move on.
