Dear Stratego fans,

As you may have noticed admins have been absent from this forum for about one month now. None of our requests have been given follow up since then so we are forced, with regret, to announce that for time being MT activity will be limited to hiding/editing posts with abusive content until some new admin will come back. This means that for all cases of draw refusal, abusive behaviour in chat, or cheating, the MT is on strike until further notice and no new cases will be opened until then. Nevertheless, we will continue soliciting admins by pm and emails for actions as much as we can.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may create but look forward for your understanding of this situation which is beyond our control. We do not know when things will return to normal.

Nevertheless, we wish you continued enjoyment of this game and forum. If you are participating in either the Champions League or the upcoming WCO, we wish you to especially have a lot of fun in those tournament events.

Kind regards,

The MT: Napoleon 1er, Lonello, GaryLShelton, SymmeTric, and tobermoryx.

Why would you announce this?

Yes exactly. Can MT reconsider this thread nd remove it? (Dear neighbourhood, I'm going to be away for a week and I'm leaving my valuables on display and my house unlocked. Just letting you know)

For a while now it has been like a house where the owner has gone away and left a sign out front to beware of the dog. But he has no dog.

Perhaps we could have continued like that for a while but when the burglars hear no barking , and they see that those bold enough to break the laws suffer no punishment , then may as well make an announcement like TheO .

How long should we keep up a pretence when people daily ask why cases they raised weeks ago have no action.

The last admin action was July 7 by a person who was moving to a new job.

Any draw refusers etc that read the forum can see that nothing happens .Those who don't will carry on as before.

I have always expected them to desert this site. It is just a matter of time.

 

Not to mention other problems, I do not want to participate in tournaments using the current platform (which has an unknown future, unknown reliability, unknown unknowns) and in the end disappoint myself and disappoint my opponent.

Astros, why do you stick your nose into everything?. The Mods can only ban the names. the admins themselves do the actual banning,right MT? Maybe JimmyCrackcorn will become arrogant enough to make a mistake. Just as long time/date are in saved screenshots. we can get cheaters later.

don't be ludicris . think of it this way. a lot of players get accused of cheating. not enough evidence. But with enough saved up evidence, we can nail these players once and for all.

I emailed CC, but it keeps bouncing back.

Will MT be able to keep outstanding cases separate (ie not roll them together)?

I doubt anyone who is tempted to now cheat is dumb enough that they cannot infer no MT means no consequences. If people need me to explicitly state that in order to figure it out, then they are probably too stupid to cheat effectively.

We have no anarchy at the moment and I, for one, have faith in the community to hold together through this rough time. Admins are absent, yes, but this is not the first time, and we've survived every previous one to arrive at where we are today. So I'm sure we will do so again.

To answer TheO's question, depending on how long the admin absence is, we may render verdicts on every claim that is reported, or we may just begun afresh at that date. How much time for the latter has not been decided yet.
