I am still thinking that current skill calculation based on ‘who killed who’ is not correct for ffa games. It is good if only 2 ppl fight against each other. In ffa game everyone can kill everyone. There must be some more sophisticated algorithm, based on the final positions and the skills of the players.
I realize that there are some innate problems with a ratio based system, but as far as deciding who is a more skilled player the current system is quite off the mark IMO.
1. Not gonna happen. Not in 4 years, not in 4,000,000 years (a bit of a bold statement but hey we are dealing with outrageous predictions here are we not?!). The true communism that you talk about is a theoretic construct and defies human nature. It is impossible to implement and it is questionable whether that many that would be interested even if it was.
2. I am not privy to such things, but naaaah I don’t think so.
3. Most likely yes, but humanity will learn nothing from it in terms of stopping to try to predict the future. There will be new predictions, guesses and theories as it always has and always will be.

i just thought we should recognise that the level of admin interaction and accountability here, already goes beyond what you could usually expect.
I used to advocate this when I was admin I guess, so I feel partially responsible for the current situation where every last little admin action is discussed in public. To be honest though, it is starting to look more and more like a mistake to me.
Err… Sorry to put it this way, BB, but that’s a really lame excuse for messing with somebody else’s posts. It makes perfect sense to start a new post to reply to a different person’s comment rather than lumping unrelated replies together in a single post.
Not a bad point I must admit. I am not sure I agree but I guess I’ll leave that kind of thing be.
As for me looking for excuses to “mess” with ppls posts I strongly reject any such notion. Sorry to put put it this way as you said, but that is pure BS. If I make a mistake that is one thing, but whatever action I take as mod is certainly not to mess with anyone.
— Moderators note —
It’s all very simple Romm. It is not good forum practice to make several posts in a row. It would be one thing if it had been two weeks and you are bumping the thread or whatever, but multi-posting within minutes just bloats the thread and is not necessary. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Thank you in advance!
Lots of funny stuff
Sadly none of the TV channels I’ve got show reruns of the Jerry Springer Show these days, but that was just as entertaining. 😉 😛
EDIT: Btw, why bother adding /rant???? This whole topic is a rant! Considering recent developments maby we should add a rants and raves forum on these boards? 😉
Not the most beautiful word in the swedish language, but there ya go.
Why was this thread unlocked?
The reason for locking it was that the information Romm was hinting at was not available. As it became available yet again I thought that the accuasations made deserved some attention. The outcome as it turned out was not a surprise, but just ignoring the thread seemed like bad form. At this point there is not really much to add though, so *** Topic locked ***.
Further elaboration will likely yield few results. Nothing has been gained by this, but mutual respect (if there was any left to begin with) has been lost. Nevertheless it has been entertaining of sorts and I am sure that you will provide more of the same in the future.
Fact: You wrongly accused the admins of claiming that The One was spreading a hack.
Fact: You took a personal remark that has nothing to do with our roles as admins/mods/devs and wrongly labelled it as an “official act”.
Fact: You have made copies of private material that you came across because of a technical mistake, which you then proceeded to post in public.
Now, despite the fact that I personally agree that the personal remark in question was in bad taste I am far more concerned with your way of handling this matter. You could have handled this in a number of ways, yet you chose to go public with unfounded accusations as your first step. To spice it up you just had to throw in some derogatory remarks to the whole staff. Finally you decided to repost private material you should not have had access to in the 1st place. Noone has forced any of this upon you. You have made the choice to take it one step further throughout this thread. Very disappointing …
Good post lappy!
Sorry bazz, but at least you can say “I knew it!”. 😉
Whatever your main point was you must realize that piecing together unrelated information into a claim without substance will be met with some sceptisism. You yourself keep mentioning the importance of acting correctly. Now all of a sudden that is of less importance since “that part wasn’t my critical point”? If you wanna take the moral highground you had better act the part mister.
No such “official demands” have been sent by this site (i.e. Gavin) as far as I know. No admin/mod/developer can act as an official of this game outside of this site’s forum or its game servers, plain and simple.
A smile sounds like a good idea. You can’t go wrong with that.
Take it away bazz …
After revisiting that thread once more today I have a few comments to make.
* Nowhere is The One mentioned or implicated in that thread as the author of that hack. That is your guesswork, which happens to be incorrect btw. So much for sound evidence and not bearing false witness huh?
* As for any e-mail(s) sent to another site in order to get them to remove cheat files for this game I have not seen it/them so I can’t comment on whether or not the words were wisely chosen. Besides what ppl decide to do privately on their own accord is hardly something that can be regulated by server admins or moderators now is it?
Finally, it’s all good and well that you want to inform ppl about the possible legal consequences of their actions. However, I have to say that your personal interpretation of the pieces you have gathered of a puzzle you should not have seen in the first place is less than welcome. Then again, as the problem seems to have been fixed you can always find comfort in that you don’t have to see anymore “lies” or “trash” written in the “wild west forums”. I suppose that’s a win/win for everyone …
*** Topic unlocked ***
Now that everthing is back online I have done some investigating into the validity of Rommel’s claims. I really can’t see how you came up with that idea Romm. The only thing I can think of besides me missing something is that since you had access to individual posts rather than the threads themselves you pieced things together and came up with this notion. Suffice to say that it has been established for a loooong time that The One did NOT write that hack.
P.S. If you have ANY evidence of your claims Romm, feel free to PM me as I am interested in resolving this matter. D.S.
actually it is nothing like that. There is no militarism, or violence advocated in my plan whatsoever. It is funny how europeans so quickly throw the fascism card around. Of course the plan is full of holes and conceptually almost impossible. The point is simply Anti-socialism.
Well if it would have matched the definition precisely I would simply have called it fascism. I am not saying it IS fascism, I am saying that the likeness is too close for comfort. Out of curiosity as you hinted at using words out of context, how is the direct opposite of your plan socialism? I would love to hear an explanation on that one.
Speaking about funny, I find it hilarious when americans use the term “europeans”. Them are fighting words. We … are … NOT … one … group!!! 😉
If you recall the old days in the Americas I believe it was property owners who were the only one’s who could vote. Why? because they had an actual stake in the land. Logical and sensible.
Now, as to the servant class at the time, which were black slaves and also women, they had no say, and that was wrong.
So what are you saying, that as long as the reason is not gender or racial biassed revoking democratic rights is fine and dandy?
What is also wrong is for some guy to say to a bunch of poor people, “hey, elect me, I’m going to take that rich guys money and give it to you instead”. That sets up a permanent second class that survives on the taxation of the rich.
This is an issue where we are not too far from each other. However, I’d claim that the rich are in no danger as it is the middle class that earn their money as employees that will pick up that tab.
