I like dark humor.
No - I'm a network engineer and I cannot think of a single time I had to use algebra to solve an issue.
However, I did have to use a very small amount of calculus for a business proposal once.
While working as a student?
Not until the kid starts algebra next week...
Sometimes that four letter word "J-O-B" gets in the way of the important activities.
On Wednesday the 16th of September we will have our next monthly maintenance.
The maintenance will happen between 10:00 and 10:25 CEST. but the actual downtime will only be a few minutes.
Your OGame Team
So many times I had 2 hours where I could have posted if it hadn't been for real life keeping me away from the board.
Yeah, if they had captured the nutty flavor but not the sweet, it probably would have been better.
It wasn't a milk chocolate stout.
It was a deep dark chocolate so not a lot of sugar content and more of a bitter taste.
I could see the coconut adding a "sweet" flavor which I agree would be ghastly if that sweet came through...
so you mean to say that sending a msg with a link to a site is against the rules if the site has against the rules content? i would much like it to be like that, but it seems just a link is not a proof that guy actually uses that bot from the site, and while GO needs to confirm it is useing it is just we will look into it untill they get proof
It is against the rules to advertise such sites in any way. It is not proof the player uses this, but the player distributes.
Concerning trust: yep, basically. And as I have pointed out we are well aware about the issue that we cannot grant transparency - and it is not only what GF says, but what the law dictates.
yeah he broke the advertise rule not the useing, kk i understood it wrong
Understand, there is a subtle difference here.
"You should use bot X and here is how you can get it..."
is different from trolling a user who is already accusing you of cheating:
"How did you know I was using gfSUPApowahs.exe?! LOL"
Obviously, we will investigate both tickets the same to verify the validity of the reported rule violation.
But this is also where the malevolent complaints parts come into play because you know the person being trolled is going to use that statement as proof.
They will expect a ban because they have the proof in the cheater's own words!.
Then they will be upset because no administrative sanction ever takes place.
(Our investigation did not show any rule violations and the player was trolling with a nonsense bot name.)
Because "nothing happened" we then get board posts where people complain about:
- the staff not doing their jobs
- how we are corrupt
- how we are rescuing our friends
- how much DM somebody must pay to have this type of treatment
Some of this mistrust could be alleviated with a pillory.
However, again, that is not our decision.
Threads like this are a part of the job.
Coconut and chocolate stout?
That sounds like it should be good.
I've had a chocolate stout which was amazing.
Perhaps the issue was the coconut?
Could be interesting though...
Both those comments together sound...
If you have created a ticket and feel your issue has not been properly addressed by the GO, press the "Complain" button or ask for it to be escalated.
We do not discuss specific cases on the forum.
Every issue presented to us in a ticket is taken seriously.
We have to follow the procedures and policies delineated to us by Gameforge.
Many who make tickets are absolutely certain another player is cheating or violating the rules in some way.
The expectation is that the GO will immediately ban the cheating player as if the word of the accuser is all which is needed.
Fortunately, we have to investigate every allegation and substantiate a rule violation has actually occurred.
Sometimes, investigations take a lot of time which requires patience from the ticket submitter.
These policies and procedures are there to protect every player (including the ticket maker) from being falsely sanctioned because of an unsubstantiated malevolent complaint.
Also, we are forbidden to tell the ticket maker anything about the investigation.
Gameforge made the decision all in-game administrative sanctions are to be hidden.
Therefore, we must follow this policy which I know is not satisfying.
I have said in multiple other places my wish for a pillory to be made available again.
However, I must abide by the policies Gameforge has put in place.
