recent topics centrally below the pic of the day remains unaffected

Tourney Schedule / Re: FIBS Tournament Schedule
« Last post by magic_one on December 04, 2015, 03:10:06 PM »
In the full schedule, Monday “Week In” tourney is listed as starting at 2000 Aus/Eastern.
In the full schedule, Friday “Week Out” tourney is listed as starting at 2000 Aus/Eastern.
The above two tourneys appear to start at the same time, but on different days.
However, the Tournament calendar shows starting times to be 4am, 6am respectively.
Which times are correct?

This was an issue I raised nearly 4 years ago - see  > Bots & other tech stuff > TourneyBot > News: Automatic Postings to FIBS Board, 21st January, 2012.  Stog kindly suggested ways of customising FIBS Board to suit your particular preferences.  Sad to relate, these never really made much sense to me so I still find the welter of TourneyBot postings in Recen Topics a frustration - but it's one I've learned to live with.

it may be that some of those 198 views are from visiting bots.. ;)

the more real folks post -- the fewer posts tbot seems to make ;)

also bear in mind tbot is auto updating results and leagues and so shows as posts...

also as the forum has been running for a very long time -- many of the questions folks may ask have already been answered and are available to view in search

enjoy the forum

Unfortunately, I've had no response from admins yet, and no response from tourneyBot.  I see there's a board specifically for TourneyBot - I'll post there aswell.

i think you will be waiting for a response for  a while as it is only a reporting robot -- i on the other hand do look in and respond from time to time


enjoy

TourneyBot / Please post to fibsboard less frequently, TourneyBot

Hi,

There are occasionally some interesting posts in here - but they are not easy to find, because the 'most recent posts' and 'recent topics' are always dominated by automated posts from tourneyBot.

This means that any attempt to have an actual discussion gets lost.

I think the forum would be much improved if tourneyBot posted once-per-week instead of several times a day.

Even though I'm a big fan of tourneybot, I have no interest in reading the posts it makes to this forum.

This post had 198 views since I posted it 2 weeks ago - that's quite a lot.

General Chit Chat / New here, hi everyone!
« Last post by Bulbapuck on November 27, 2015, 12:53:14 PM »
Hello everyone! I'm new to these forums, but I've played on FIBS for some time. Recognizing a lot of names here :)

I figured that it makes sense to join considering the time I spend in FIBS, but I also joined to (shamelessly) plug my video series.

It's a series where I play 3 point matches on Fibs with commentary and analysis. If you see me on Fibs I'm usually working on these videos, so if you want to join one, go ahead and challenge me to a 3-pointer!

Playlist is here if you're interested: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEem6SKeUgpVlk84zzQxGkWt1DsvvcxTh

Improving your backgammon skills / Backgammon Studio 2.1!
« Last post by PillowFighter on November 26, 2015, 08:02:44 AM »
Hi!

A few improvements has been added to my backgammon server since 2.0:

Two new challenges:

Prime time checker - checker play in prime vs prime positions.
Prime time cube - cube action in prime vs prime positions.

Suggested by Tore.

Two new action tags:



Split an old action flag 'make bar or not' to distinguish if you are making your own bar point or the bar point of your opponent. Suggested by negheonegu.

10/30 and 60 second duels. Each player has a limited time to answer a position correctly:



Do track! You can enable automatic bookmark creation whenever you make a wrong answer. It gets organized into positiontype:



At a later point you can inspect these errors and check if you're making more errors in specific position types or if there are other similarities in your errors.

Ultimate champion! Easy display of who holds the most top highscore positions, suggested by the one with the most highscore positions...:



Progress report section now has a play button for easy startup of challenges you have played in the past to see if you have improved or not:



There are a fair amount of other minor fixes and improvements but you guys get the picture! :-)

With our FIBS Clients getting old and many new OS versions coming out I thought this poll might be interesting.
