Someone said they wanted to research the answers, but we've waited long enough... gsmx will pee his pants if he doesn't get the answers right now.

You're getting old and losing your mind, it happens to the best of us ;).
I'm pretty sure that years ago you mentioned that you had been #1 before. So, with that assumption, we have the correct answer being 11 of 15:
(2 of 25 (8%) of those polled guessed correctly.)

bitwise No
connect4 No
detroit_red No
gsmx No

bb82
Yes
Diplomat
Yes
fletch182
Yes
hordesofmidgets
Yes
leslie
Yes
Martz
Yes
Master Radishes
Yes
Peanut
Yes
Rolan A Doobie
Yes
sinnybee
Yes
SplitDiplomat
Yes

Of those who PMed answers, the only one to guess 11 was detroit_red--grats! (second place to Fatmo)
The person off by the least individual yes/no guesses was gsmx, just off by 3 guesses--well done! (detroit_red off by 4, with 2 yes answers that should have been no and 2 no answers that should have been yes)

Yes, I'm getting old....and yes, I'm losing my mind (I may be in the middle of some sort of breakdown actually)....but I do remember. I was just asking if it would be weird if I said I didn't.

And if I'm not one of the people you are talking about here....

2) Of the players listed above, who has been accused of not deserving their high ranking?


....I damn well should be.

Aww, sorry!

You weren't trying to catch me making a mistake, were you?

There are worse #1 players than you--you're terrific.

I'm surprised that you're doing less to claim your involvement in the non-premium answer though... or wait... you didn't read that far through the OP?

Nah, I figured you had done your research.

You'll have a hard time finding someone with a shittier solo than this one....although since it's been so long ago, you'll have to look at the order history to actually see the map.

I kinda glanced at it. Does that count?

No, I'm not going to click through dozens of orders, but I assume this is a game that you referenced years ago (I remember things).
Just because you had a "gimme" solo, doesn't mean you aren't a fantastic player.

You only have to click on the last set of orders, I ended the game on my only turn after I picked up an auto-surrendered spot. Actually, you don't have to click on anything, here's what the board looked like when I took over for England.

Just because you had a "gimme" solo, doesn't mean you aren't a fantastic player.


Just because I held the top spot for a bit doesn't mean I am.
