Well, the click on spaces interface I've always found to be error prone compared to the drop down menu.

Also, the fact that I need to click through five links to see the text of a new message in a separate window is pretty awkward, frankly.

(I also find the color scheme pretty garish, but that's not a technical issue)

Oh, and having a mute function would be good. I could have used it in this game. I had to insult the shit out of someone just to get them to shut up.

I DON'T THINK THAT WORKED FOR YOU.

I will say changing your standards of conduct you accept. In two of the four games I've played since coming back for this tournament, I've encountered racist and particular homophobic slurs. Your mods basically haven't been willing to take any action, calling it "buzzsaw diplomacy". But when I called one of the offending players a psychotic asshole (largely because he has been a psychotic asshole) my post got remove and the slur is still sitting there in the public press.


I'm not playing one a site where it's ok to call me any of a number of denigrating slurs So, no I won't be back, but I will be directing all the homophobic assholes over here so that you all cal play together

Sparrowhawk, your posts were deleted because:
1) you accused another player of cheating in public press, an action that is explicitly against site rules.
2) you returned to the game after being eliminated specifically to troll and flame a player still in the game.

I understand you are sensitive to name calling and have taken offense at your adversary in the game. However, moderators generally will not act on casual obscenity and mild personal abuse, especially in this case where you were the instigator of the abuse in public press.

Way to show your true colors, sparrowhawk. Thanks for proving me right before you take your loser ball and go home.

Actaully, I didn't accuse anyone of cheating.

Why are you still here? Buh-bye, now.
