    Quinns,
    What do you think about this rule:
    After a player had no powergraphs (rating adjustements) for 3 months, he is contacted by the current CtP PBEM Ladder Administrator (email or ICQ) and asked what's the matter with him, if he wants to remain rated. If the player agrees, he is dropped from the ratings.

    I though of this after dropping Aaginor, who stopped visiting Apolyton and playing CtP after getting a new PC, and so he just stood there in the last place. And TheBirdMan was right, when he pointed out that it made Aaginor look like a newbie.

    I agree with this rule Solver, but not with your implication that "newbies" are bad players.

    Newbies -- BAD? Being new doesn't, necessarily, mean that a player is an unskilled player. Look at Blackice who was a "newbie" to PBEM a couple months ago. Blackice defeated both TheBirdMan and me, on internet play and is a very good player (ranked in the top 10 on GameLeague at one time). Newbies CAN be deceivingly "good" players.

    Nice comment Quinns. And veterans can be bad. Look at me - played CtP since it came out, and look at my rating. LOL.

    Can the top three players play in more than just ONE RATED GAME! Come on Mobius, Klair, and Rick! Quit hiding in your "single game" fortress and come play with the rest of us! (Just kidding .... sort of )

    Mobius IS actually playing in one more rated game.

    I kick his "spanish" a.. every 9th turn (and so does Demos) in Lung DM 3.2.

    Until now, that is .

    They (Mobius and Demos) are most unpleasent (to me) steadily closing in the gap between us .

    Edit: But what the heck - I'm still on Tyranny, no ruins found with a decent government yet . So what could I expect ?

    But the turnaround in that game has been pretty slow lately that you might as well not count it!

    Actually, Solver... now that you mention it, we COULD rate the internet games as well. As long as the VOLUME of reported games remains below about 10 per week, I could handle the data entry. (If it goes beyond this volume level, maybe somebody could create the programming interface to do this automatically. I would contribute 20 megabytes of space on my hosted www.worldtennisratings.com website, (or maybe Apolyton would be willing to do so), if someone was willing to do the programming.)

    We would handle it the same way as PBEM game ratings with some changes, of course:

    CTP Internet Game Rankings Incorporation
    1) There would be only one rating per player, i.e. it would turn into "CTP Ratings" instead of "CTP PBEM Ratings".
    2) There would be no *9 turn ratings for Internet games. Instead, the internet game would be ranked in reverse order of elimination, (or any other agreed upon victory conditions).
    3) All CTP rated games would permit no use of "bug tricks" or any other kind of misuse of the intended game rules.
    4) (Other rules, I'm sure, ... just can't think of them now.)

    Quinns,
    I don't really want to have to have to play more games right now just for the purpose of being in more rated games. But I don't want to cause any problems for the score-keepers, either. So I'd be willing to retire from the ratings if this would be helpful.

    BTW, Mobius recently completed the Demos Semi-Acc game as the winner, with a final score so high that hadthe game been played now, and been rated, you'd have had to create a new category even higher up the scale than #1!

    In fact, I don't want to rate Internet games. The system was always meant to be for PBEM games, and so it will remain, I think.

    Okay. Makes sense. Less work for me anyway . No internet inclusion in the CTP PBEM Ratings. BTW, I will get to the ratings update within the next couple of days. Sorry for the delay everyone.

    And Rick, please stay on board, I was only joking earlier. That's one good thing about this system, you can play one game or one thousand games, it doesn't really affect your rating, either way.

    Also, Rick, I'd like to see Mobius (number 1 CTP PBEM) play Paulno1 (number 1 CTP GameLeague) in a one on one match. I think a victory there, either way, would silence a lot of talk that's been thrown around lately.

    With a little search in the first post of the topic you can find each player on how many rated games is currently playing .

    Why am I not being rated in conquer . I have reached my zenith in that game, and I have taken first place for good. Or is that why .

    I might be wrong, but doesnt (these things) mean not to be rated

    You are not rated because you said that you didn't want to be rated in this game. It's in one of your first posts after you joined the game. If you change your mind, you can be rated for future turns. In that case, post here that you want to be rated in Conquer from now on.

    Yes indeed Paul is right. I love these groundless accusations...

    Quote from the Conquers!!! thread:
    ------------------------

    Steve5304 (a.k.a. Saddam)

    Racine ,WI USA

    Jan 2001
    ...

    Btw Aaginor is presumed dead and we have stopped searching for him,i am saddened bye his loss ,But i am now
    the true leader of the Incan empire ! We do not believe the Rumours ,Which claim that he is Amassing an army in
    the Snowy Northlands(an army of what?).....Anyway my Scholars and Traders tell me ,that no one ; Not even burly
    Savages that roam Aimlessly through the Incan Jungles, Can live in the Land of Ice.
    Also - i wish not be rated for this one.....I want my Rank to be 100% my work.

    -----------------------------------------
    end quote ---


    edit: By the way, though Saddam, like Paul says, you can switch from "unrated" to "rated" status at no penalty at all. However, your rating won't be affected until the "next" *9 turn (after your notification, to both this thread and the "Conquers!!!" thread, that you wish it so).

    Lightbulb

    SHOCKED OUTRAGED [SIZE=9]




    I had gotten an email from Aaginor saying to sub for him for a few months. He said he would be back . Then I realized, he probably wasnt coming back . So the months went bye, so I sorta disregarded that email, and sort took over permanatly.


    I dont think he is coming back is he?... But that is what the email said. I may even still have that email. Let me try to dig it up too prove me point.

    I also take back those words ..considering the inca civ was a pathetic state when I inherited her! It only would have destroyed my overall rating. But, since the latter has changed

    You are getting old Quinns.

    You have forgotten (at least) 7 games in you updating :

    Lungmatch 3.2 from 7. may
    Youngbloods from 9. may
