    Is it too early to mention a typo on the " volunteers " page?
    My name seems to have been accidently left off

    Bottom of this (and every other page I think), click on Site Map. On that page at the bottom of the third column is Comminity - Volunteers. Click on and there's a list of the Forum Mods (finally!) and the Game Mods.

    Can you read? Who have I accused?
    I merely put forward one reason why TRACKHEAD wasn't selected by Russ,

    Despite the number of votes. I would think Russ knows what he is doing.

    You are right I wanted mateuloser banned, he was a worthless individual, with nothing positive to offer:
    funnily enough Russ agreed with me there too

    I'm disappointed that Zumdahl has been picked. He has demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of how chess engines choose and calculate moves.
    Of course people may disagree with me but I thought the major thing needed for the game mods was ability to detect cheats. But without a working knowledge of simple chess engine mechanics (how the horizon effect works etc.) how can you do this?

    Well I guess we'll see how good a job they do.

    Very sensible post really ...

    If he really topped himself you should be ****** sorry and all the others that bullied him so badly here ... Yeah he was a right pain in the neck, but so are other people here (and everywhere) ...

    Interesting... See, we had a similar situation where I work (DELPHI). and upper management decided that they were no longer going to promote the tradesman from the floor to a supervisry position. Their idea was that you could train ANYBODY to do the job!

    Soooo, when looking at people to choose for the job, it's not so important what their abilities are... it's important that they are trainable.

    Don't flame me, I'm just a messenger.

    Way to go Russ! Seems that "to-do-list" just got a couple items shorter...But then again, in the time it took me to write this, I'm sure at least five other things have been added. Good Luck!

    Since you lack mind reading skills as far as I know and haven't the foggiest actual idea why Russ picked who he did, to say that TRACKHEAD wasn't selected because he "might" be a cheat, is a cheating accusation, pure and simple. As such it's inappropriate.

    I wasn't referring to mateulose (who was banned for doing things well after you initially wanted him banned); I was referring to your statement about people who post on FW being banned. FW has nothing to do with this site; but your cheating accusation in this very thread is contrary to what Russ requested. As such, you should admit your error and retract it. And to suggest that Russ "agrees" with you that TRACKHEAD is a cheat is a totally unsubstantiated assertion with no facts supporting it whatsoever and is, in addition, libelous towards that fellow player.
