Right clicking sometimes sends you to the wrong server, I'd say.

Is this because of the metaserver's extremely frustrating habit of updated milliseconds before you click?

Possibly, although I only observed that effect in Multiwinia so far.

I've tested the password word issue. It does exist, But I only think its on the servers I'm running. Maybe its something with GoDaddy? I have no idea what's causing it. But it is most defiantly there.

I need a little more explanation (because I suck a math) for the rule concerning how many times we can play a certain player.

Would you say three times playing one player is safe?

Hehe.

(kept getting interrupted or would have answered an hour ago...)

Ok, before I try to explain this, a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. The reason for the rule is to prevent players from purposely inflating their stats.
  2. I can not implement this rule until somebody overtly breaks it.


Until now, neither of the above has been or could have been (in reality) accomplished.

Now, the rule is very simple; you (sfericz) start playing games. Along the way you begin to accumulate an "average" number of times you play against others. For example, sfericz vs rus|Mike 3, vs Mighty Night 1, vs (MOR) 6, vs Ace Rimmer 2 = a total of 12 games vs 4 people = average of 3 times per person. The rule states "no more than twice the average". Your average = 3, twice that = 6, so playing any one person more than six times (7 or more) would not be valid as it could lead to artificially inflating or deflating your raking (and do the opposite to the other player).

Now, keep in mind that the person with the most games is rus|Mike (11) and he's played 11 different people (not a single person twice yet). Therefore, he technically couldn't play anybody three times. As you can see, this is pretty silly, at the moment anyway because there are not enough games and no real "outliers" to send up flags. In fact, if this never really shows up (obvious attempts at inflating/deflating rankings), I'll never actually enforce the rule.

In short, playing somebody three times, at this early in the season (just over a week), is not a problem. I really can't see being able to identify real "outliers" until the number of games is 3 times or more the number of players. Or, until most of the players have played a large portion of the field. We haven't gotten to that number of games yet.

Lastly, if you feel like you've played one or two people "too much", simply play a few others the same number of times and raise your average number of games per player. :wink:
