I disagree. Russ did do something about it. He crossed out the guy's name in the crosstable, and gave him a score of 0. He also green-highlighted my score, since I had the most points with the cheat removed.
But he left the bit where the cheat is listed as the tourney winner, and he didn't adjust profiles to show the true winner of the tournam ...[text shortened]... credit in his profile.
So, we share the same need. The last bit of reversal should be done.
Well, you're quite right in that both 'issues' deserve the rightful winner to have more than a mere green highlighting under their name and their score, when you take the trouble to look directly at that tourney...most certainly it's well worth petitioning, and for ALL rightful tourney winners !
Like 'Kewpie,' I feel this may well be the precedent required to right many wrongs as the site appears to be just happy to wash their hands with any tourney once a ban takes place.
However, and the true crux here, is that the Beatlemania issue is a TOTAL site error..no other players involved, no actual 'cheating' involved. The ban was all about a spammer and the site thought Beatle was 'colluding' with that spammer..he merely sent a message back to the said spammer and the site automatically tracked and banned ALL correspondences. He was banned for a few hours and in that time he was struck from however many tourney's, his flag was thrown out by Russ after a few hours but lost many games on time alone between both his ban and reinstatement.
So, if I'm incorrect in any way Russ, could you not indicate 'something'...I know full well that DOZENS of feedback has been sent on this one issue, many supported messages along the way....loads of threads and 'sub' threads linked to this.
I can't find anything this guy has done incorrectly ( he's far too modest to complain himself ), and when the actual ( erroneous ) tourney winner complains for Beatlemania also, then it requires attention.. because this is just all plain WRONG and it won't just go away !!
