TourneyBot now checks saved game count
« on: April 07, 2013, 01:17:00 PM »
Last week a player found they could register for a tourney but then not play, this is because they had too many saved games.

TourneyBot will start checking for this as soon as I can roll out the changes.

There is also some other minor clean ups in the latest version.

What is the saved games limit you've made?

A couple of weeks ago, I was in a discussion with a fairly new player who had racked up a lot of saved games through no fault of their own, but of ignorance of the system.  Her rep was good, just had too many saved games.  I would not want to exclude someone arbitrarily for that reason.

I would be reasonably sure Tom has set it at 5..because at that level you can't start new games, and therefore cant play in the tournament...sounds like a good idea to me,  one less admin detail to have to deal with, although the time out was probably not too disruptive.

It also has the added benefit of telling the player what the problem is so they can get an idea of how to fix it.

Am I missing something here? Socksey doesn't want to arbitrarily exclude somebody who is actually unable to start a match? How does that work then?

Do you ever read what you write ? If a player is unable to start a match, he is, de facto, excluded, arbitrarily or otherwise.

If I were you I would check into Alzheimner's clinics in Spain. You seem to be losing it, bit by bit, and your fixation on socksey is a concern.

lol...that was his point [resists urge to use a personally critical word]...do you read not only what you write - but what others write too?

Isn't it obvious? Even players unable to play matches are more welcome in tourneys than you or inim  [and probably me] :laugh:

Of course, if they enter and cant play, they do bump up the available TPR points for those fixating on being the winner each week and having their name in lights. For those for whom that is the single most important point to playing, that is possibly quite relevant  ;)

What's obvious to me is that dorbel seems incapable of making his point and for some reason you think you have to be his water carrier.

You two deserve each other, you're a match made in heaven.

One last crack at this, and then I walk away to more interesting things....the point was made, clear to everyone except you and possibly one other who seems somewhat off the mark in his comments, but he always was hard of understanding.

Lets see...socksey wants to include players in her tourney who cannot start matches due to having 5 or more saved games....dorbel asked why [possibly since he is unable to join, so feels particularly interested].

No interpretation needed, just an ability to read something other than your own words - oh and possibly a wry sense of humour.

And as for who deserves what - I think you are very well deserving of all your dear friends.

G'day sir.

I guess it must be that vaunted British sense of humor that no one else ever understands.

I'm sure dorbel is appreciative of your efforts to explain his positions to those of us who lack that wry sense of humor.

Good to see vic coming out strongly against the abuse of a voluntary position to further a personal vendetta!

A young couple moves into a new neighborhood. The next morning while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbour hanging the wash outside. "That laundry is not very clean; she doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she needs better laundry soap." Her husband looks on, remaining silent. Every time her neighbor hangs her wash to dry, the young woman makes the same comments. A month later, the woman is surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and says to her husband: "Look, she's finally learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this? " The husband replies, "I got up early this morning and cleaned our windows."
