So having a life justifies rule breaking?  Having a life justifies wasting 9 people's time for 2 hours and spoiling a game, so you can have a nice dinner?  Having a life allows you to be so inconsiderate that even when you know 90 minutes before you have to leave, you do nothing to find a replacement?

I expect more of vets like Ape and yourself, Bantams. You should be setting an example for the newest members. 

We don't quit - we don't cheat - we value good sportsmanship.  Those are principles upon which this ladder league was founded.  They do not conflict with the concept of "having a life" at all.  In fact I think they represent a life of quality, of integrity, and respect.

Things have improved a lot since late November when we started to address this situation - quitting was much more epidemic and widespread then.  Still, there are people who disregard the rules or put themselves above them -- and it doesn't help for those who are ladder vets to criticize admins when you should be supporting us and applying peer pressure to the quitters to change their behavior.

Says the guy who begged us not to tell anyone when he reported them.  Well, thanks for your input, I guess.

this is a pretty slanderous and misrepresenting statement.  you fuck your own playerbase around by engaging in this stupid 'behind the scenes' process, rather than being open and transparent.

i have repeatedly stated both in this forum and in private emails to admins, that it is a good idea to post all disputes in public forum for open discussion/debate.

i had no problem telling people to their face when i reported them.  i've repeatedly warned people that i would report them for quitting (CptMarvelous, Svavidi, etc.) and you can ask them.

feel free to do the work and have the facts before you make potshot judgements

here is just one reminder:

as far as i can tell, your whole process is basically to protect your admins, nothing more or less.

no lestat playing civ isnt life one day maybe you will get one but i doubt it

playing civ is about having fun with friends which it dosnt seem to be anymore

life is about having fun with family which it seems ape as done and got boxed for

playing mafia wars and farmville on facebook dosnt make a life!

spending quality time with youre family does!

if thats a reason to be boxed then feel free to kick me i dont want part of this nomore

Weaksauce you have made several fallacious statements.

this is partly why i quit playing.  it's not the entire reason, but dealing w/ the admins here is really a chore. 

You quit playing, yet you continue to post here.

Quote

i would say that barely 50% of the decisions i see are right, and that's being generous.  i realize it's a volunteer group, and you have to couch your level of expectations in that light.  but i think it's repeatedly fucked up, lacking common sense, and really an impediment to being a part of this league.

So are the 50% of the decisions that are right when we rule in "your favor?"   And when we rule against you is the other 50%?  Of course if we rule against you we will seem to have made the "wrong" decision.  It's a matter of perspective.

You should try to handle your own disputes.  There's only a certain number of facts we can glean from a screenshot.  But instead of being calm and asking politely for a player to rejoin the game, send units, or to stop calling you names, you decide the best course of action is to take a screen shot then scream back at them thus excluding yourself from any repercussions unless your "opponent" also takes a screenshot. Scream scream screenshot scream.  Then report to the administration.

This is the childish crap we deal with every day.  Take some responsibility on yourself.  Don't be a whiney brat.  The administration is not your babysitter.

this kind of boxing of ap3; i can think of 10 other events off the top of my head, where a total lack of common sense is exhibited.  it's just retarded.

IDK why you guys insist on "doing things behind closed doors", other than to hide your fucked up process from the light of day.  instead of posting disputes/appeals publicly for all names and facts to be exposed appropriately.

Quite a few threads like this get posted on our boards and roughly 80% of them are illogical flamefests with the sole purpose of berating the administration.  We are right far far more often than not.

Speaker is actually spot on.  You want transparency yet you berate the administration for making your identity known to the player you have complained against.  Hypocrisy.

Yes and we disagree.  Let's agree to disagree.

So you only have a problem with us telling a specific person (or people) that you complained about them so that you don't get ostracized/excluded from playing in certain games.  Hey I want to have my cake and eat it too!

As I said above, we are right most of the time, but on occasion we can make mistakes.

Z,
  I think it is time to shut down this thread.  It did not have the effect I was hoping for.  I am sorry I started it.
