New Imposter Enforcement Policy
« on: January 31, 2009, 09:03:19 AM »
After a long discussion, the Admin team has decided the following:

1.  It is still the hosts/players responsibility to take reasonable measures to prevent imposters, and this will be how the RD Admin makes a call on imposter issues in game disputes.

2.  But to streamline this process we are going to enact a more specific process; the first time a player claims he was impostered we will give them the benefit of the doubt, and use a new "AdminDummyAccount" to replace that player in team games.  This will prevent excessive skill gains or loses on the teams involved.

3.  At this time we will add this players name to a newly created "impostered players list" that I will make on the forums.  Any players added to this list MUST from then on be checked by hosts in every game to ensure they are who they say they are.  If a host doesn't force a player on this list to sign into the league page or any other security measures, then the RD Admin will void the entire game as invalid.

I hope that this policy will simplify the process for hosts and make it clear what must be done to ensure the continued validity of league games.

Seems quite reasonable.  Can you make a link to the list of impostered players under the list of penalty boxed players, for ease of reference?  May as well just add the whole PPP clan to the list preemptively, by the way. :)

I'll see if DTA thinks he can add that, but using the forums will have to do for now.

How about an elegant solution of closing directIP ports?
As it seems if you have only 2033 port open, then no one can connect to you via directIP.
That could be as a temporary rule or a recommendation for everyone who is hosting league games, to solve the imposers issue, until civ developers add identifier to players logged in using civ passport.

He is suspended for another 80 days so he won't be running any tournaments.  Was just an oversight I will remove him.

Bantams is just being obtuse again instead of asking the real question of why Linde is *allowed* to still be a TD, the answer to his original question is simple, he's a TD on the forums because he is still a TD.....rather simple really.

I find CS's comment about Bantams being "obtuse" as offensive as saying someone is being "obnoxious". CS needs to lose his forum privileges for a week and this whole forum needs to become members only. This is necessary to maintain order and fair rules for all.

TBS, I used "obtuse" in the sense that I used it was to point out Bantams "lack of insight", in his rhetorical use of the English language. So I was pointing out his flawed language or perhaps the fact that he purposely asks a question he already knows the answer too. Neither are an attack on his character.  At least in my opinion.
