Do games have to be fully concluded in order to count towards membership? Or can we count ongoing games in which we've been eliminated?

If you have been eliminated that should count.

For the purposes of completed games, do we have to have completed it from start to end? Or can we take a game over? Do we just use the number of games listed on the stats page?

Also, I have one unranked surrender and two ranked ones. Both came near the beginning of my time on this site, and the two ranked ones list themselves as my first scored games on my stats page. Is that how I should base my game complete no-surrender streak? And I'm not sure when the unranked game occurred, though it was near here. Is there a way to locate my unranked surrender, so I can know when to start counting the streak of completed games without a surrender?

Thank you very much!

Hi CrownPrince

Firstly, absolutely you can take over a position in an active game. It's the finished games count that matters.

As far as locating when a surrender happened, there's not a completely straightforward way of doing that. There are two ways I am aware of - one is, if you still have the email telling you that you surrendered then it will give you the date and time that it happened. The second is, if you can remember what game it was (or enough about the game to be able to track it down) then by looking at the shoutbox in the game archive it will tell you there when the surrender was.

Hey gareth,

Thank you very much! I appreciate the help. I'll see if I can time the surrender. Just want to see if I'm going for Bronze or Silver.

EDIT: I checked my e-mail, and it has 18 finished games following my last surrender. So I'm going to apply for as high as I can.

Thanks!

Well, looking at your stats, 21 rank/norank games finished, over 98% consistency and 3 surrenders. If you are correct that the last surrender was 18 games ago then you should be eligible for Gold.

I'm not sure whether you are intending this post in this thread to be your application for membership, or whether you are going to post an application in the Applications section, but either way if you could just let me know the details (game number will do) of the game that saw your last surrender then I can cross-check the details and hopefully move to a swift decision to admit!

Look forward to hearing from you.

No, I'm going to make an actual application post.

Thank you for your help! :)

Are we changing our name to the "I Don't Quit" group?

It's catchy, but doesn't seem as dignified as the Classicists... :roll:

I think Gareth's just having a bit of fun.

As was I, no worries.
