    It was - unless both players agreed upon it before the match started.

    190. hornedfrog vs Maquiladora; Started Nov 2008

    hf resigned in this game at turn 82.

    His new cities were unfortunately (for him) settled right across the ocean from my older more developed cities, allowing me to capture 3 quickly with SotL before he could get defences to them. More were probably to follow, so that was it.

    We just started a rematch.

    4d) Settling on top of a farm or mine.

    Without objection, I'll add this to the rules.
    Agreed here

    agreed, terraform is one thing but when it comes to tile improvements, no

    Terraforming around a city is fine of course, but I mean terraforming the future city tile itself. Say terraforming a plains or grassland to forest before you settle on it.

    I haven't used it in either of my games though because I wasn't sure.
    ok, so basically you get a production bonus "under" the city?

    I wouldnt have a problem with it

    We used to ban this also in CtP2 MP, but what do you think?

    There has been some recent discussion about what is considered "cheating" in PBEM. I added a few primary examples to the opening post. I think most all of you know these already, but here they are...

    ... Excerpt from the Opening Post

    Rule 4

    4. There is no cheating or bug exploits allowed in CTP PBEM Challenges. Anyone caught cheating will be permanently banned from the CTP PBEM Challenge Ladder.

    Cheating in PBEM includes (but is not limited to):
    a) Opening any of your opponents turns before the game ends.
    b) Replaying any turn.
    c) Using the "rush buy - then switch queue" bug exploit.
