The first TD's should do is RTFM!!!   :D

Or even better: read the whole site.
Entertaining thread, people.  dorbel should turn his prodigious attentions to monkeywrenching more often.  Sorry, wox, I know entertaining me was not the purported goal of this thread (although I can only assume it was an implied goal).  Like the (d)evolution of the 10K club, sometimes there are unintended consequences to these things.

I guess webrunner's use of 'RTFM' indicates that the term 'STFU' is hereby sanctioned on the fibsboard.  (?)  As it should be!

BTW, wox, I am still planning on becoming a TD (I enjoy toiling unloved and unappreciated!), I just haven't had much time for fibs the last couple weeks.

i am posting regarding new t.d's....

this is getting ridiculous and making my time on fibs less enjoyable and that goes for others too.
This morning i log into fibs and immediatley get a notice that i have been banned from tourney 980 from sparks......Not the nicest thing to start of the week...this has also happend to a lot of other fibsters this morning...

also Sparks is now complaining to repbot too
samirah shouts: RepBot says: spark's complainers: burper, donzaemon, gonzobuzz, rinit, samirah, Shades RepBot says: spark has no vouchers.
 RepBot says: spark's complaints: breadfruit, clau, donzaemon, gogogiz, grasshopper, MadMatt, samirah, Shades, TourneyBot

every 5 mins now i am getting tells that i am banned from tourneys.....

this needs to be sorted out....i see this as a hassle and annoyance...how long is it going to last for   or is it going to go on for good...

I expect it will go on until the novelty wears off.  Sorry to hear this is happening - it doesnt sound much fun  :(   Do you have any idea why sparks has targetted you for banning - or is it a lot of players - picked at random?

:lol:

Not just people on line it seems...here is what i logged in to...

Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #979, by the order of spark.
Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #980, by the order of spark.
Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #981, by the order of spark.
Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #982, by the order of spark.
Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #983, by the order of spark.
Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #984, by the order of spark.

lets hope the boredom sets in real soon  :D

Oops, seeing them here - they aren't bans - as I thought on screen - but seems I moderated some tourneys whilst busy at work - how very multitasking of me  :D

Well guess that is his/her 6 for today anyway.  perhaps he/she is just playing with the controls to see what they do - in the manner of a 3 year old investigating a VCR  :rolleyes:

Since none of these tourneys actually ran - to tidy the list up a bit I have deleted them - but there are still 5 I cant remove - perhaps the creators would like to remove them?
The command is 'tell tourneybot drop tourney No.' and then reply yes.

It used to be that you could log in, type "tell tourneybot tourneys" and see if anything was going on.  There were always one or two odd tourneys still hanging on but it was simple.  Now it is a f*&%ing mess!  Oh well!  Democracy is a messy process as well and dictators can make the trains run on time.  I guess a messy system is better.

Thx, Matt!  Would it be too much to ask that you do the same for gonzobuzz?   ;)

To offer evidence for that - here is tonights offering...(gees i am glad i am usually in bed now..)

In the middle of a  tourney run by gogo (very professionally might i add  ;) )

TourneyBot says: *** Single Elimination Bracket Tourney #989 (Tourney #989) has opened for registration! Type 'tell TourneyBot tourney 989' for details. Register with 'tell TourneyBot register 989'. ***

Message from TourneyBot: You have been appointed as a Director of Tourney #989, by the order of gonzobuzz.

(i am still playing in the other btw)


then..

Message from TourneyBot: You have been banned from Tourney #990, by the order of gonzobuzz.

then..

Message from TourneyBot: You have been banned from Tourney #991, by the order of gonzobuzz.

then...

Message from TourneyBot: You have been banned from Tourney #992, by the order of gonzobuzz.

then...

Message from TourneyBot: You have been banned from Tourney #993, by the order of gonzobuzz.

then..

I won the tourney I was actually playing in  :D

along the way..

hangglide says: i'm confused by the multiple tourneys

yeah me too  :rolleyes:

boardking shouts: TourneyBot wrote this message: 9You have been banned from Tourney #992 by the order of gonzobuzz.

hangglide shouts: i have been removed from 992 by order of gonzobuzz

TourneyBot shouts: *** The ###### is HERE!!! (Tourney #1000) has opened for registration! Type 'tell TourneyBot tourney 1000' for details. Register with 'tell TourneyBot register 1000'. *** (good to know tourney 1000 was such a positive event  :D )

meanwhile - back at the ranch - since he is such a talented player - gonzo is playing 99 ers!!!

brazilbabe and gonzobuzz start a 99 point match. (one after another  :D )  maybe that is why the tourneys didnt get full attention.....

And as if all that wasnt fun enough for one night ..

TourneyBot says: |1000: [bracket] The ###### is HERE!!!| |Thu, 26 Aug 04 02:54 UTC| |Directors: brazilbabe| |Status: In progress|

TourneyBot: T1000R1M2 (3-pt): heymark (1552) vs. brazilbabe (1591)

and...


heymark shouts: so now...what happens if your tourney player drops?

oh dear  :(

Maybe adding the rep thing to the add moderator command should be considered..

Does this mean that the complete set of Ginzu knives that I was promised for winning his last tournament aren't really in the mail?

I banned them. Looks like my master plan isn't turning out so great, now I have even more work with abusing idiots. Hopefully the novelty will wear off...

I might disable messages the bot sends when a TD bans someone next, too...
