(#5333511) Scoring error in mahjong
Posted by Pegasus on 20 Jan 2022 at 3:28PM
Never mind, my mistake, I thought we were going into round three when we were going into round four.
(#5333128) Timeout bug?
Posted by csain1 on 19 Jan 2022 at 1:09PM
In Nabbem game #13191140, one of the cops timed out. The other two cops managed to still nab the robber. Even tho the one cop timed out, she was still awarded a win even tho she was previously showing a loss due to the timeout. Working as designed? If the robber is caught, all cops win... even if one had previously timed out???

Vickie, considering it's Three Player Whist, I suggest that you offer a draw in all of the games. That's what I just did last week when I had the same game with Ozallan who sadly passed away.

Good points all around and I agree with you. I love the Olympics and have only been frustrated by one player who plays his days off and vacation days like a drum, plus when he is on and isn't. Holds up all play in a section when everyone else is done and we could be moving on. That isn't fun. Extends play on future rounds by maybe 30 days while we all wait for the clock to run out. Yes he was eliminated due to non play so the rule worked but it still wrecks the fun to a degree. I don't think anything really needs to change in your Olympics and you are right to defend them. Some other things do though maybe, like all games a player is playing counts toward their total games running. Ladders, friendly, tournies, everything and when players hit that # for their membership that is that. Having over a 1000 games is totally unnecessary and created the situation most of us have been discussing. This is my personal opinion and does not mean it is right, just how I feel. You do a great job with the Olympics and I thank you.

Posted by rabbitoid on 10 Jan 2022 at 10:45AM
I wasn't going to comment more on this, but this has now got Off Topic! to the Olympics, so:

The Olympics are protected against this sort of abuse by the limit of 2 months on the clocks. This ensures that in general players who take on more that they can handle get eliminated in the first round.

In earlier years there were various limits about the number of games a players could join. Limit on the total number of games, limit on games of each category, limits on the clubs, others I forgot. None was liked and at the end all the limits were removed. Of all the formats that were tried this seems to work best.

Most of the regular tournaments now also have a global limit. The 3-day ones have a more lax limit of 6 months. I think the only tournaments without a limit are the 3-week ones which are destined for players who like to take their time.

By the way, the Olympics don't have a great many more games than a typical monthly tournament. The next 3-day tournament (Feb 2022) has 86 entries, the current winter Olympics has 132, not that much more, and their starting dates are spread over 6 weeks. The difference is only that due to the number of participants many tournaments are split into divisions which blows the Olympics to 200+ tournaments.

I guess I was more referencing the suggestion to limit the amount of tournaments you can enter in the Olympics. I did every tournament last one with one time out.

I do understand the point that everyone else is making, though. There were some frustrations regarding that on a few games during the Olympics, too.

Posted by z71cat on 10 Jan 2022 at 9:47AM
it also states this,
What To Do If Your Opponent Isn't Playing On Time

You wait for the opponent to move. You watch the "time left" go through.....
...3 days
...1 day 1 hour
...23 hours 59 minutes (now it's in bold characters. Aha! I'll get my win!)
...59 minutes (We've gone to red letters! Holding my breath - I'm about to score!!)
...1 minute! still red! You can't breathe!!!!
...time out imminent! bold red, refresh, refresh.....

Zaboing! The game now says 23 hours 59 minutes! Crying

Go to your opponents profile page to see if they're on vacation or on a scheduled day off. More often than not, they are. If not, look to see when they last played. If it has been several days, you might send them a heads up, although if they're not on site they obviously won't see your message. Doing so has helped a number of "friendly" opponents save their games more than once, and taking the time to be a friendly opponent by caring about others goes a long ways in bettering GoldToken.

If you feel someone is abusing their vacation days, please report them to GoldToken Support for evaluation. We promise to look into it, and take appropriate action. Please keep in mind we will not share the results of our action due to GoldToken's Privacy Policy.

very interesting reading on this page. I guess if enough players reported this maybe it would stop.
(#5329367) Information page error

(#5329365) Re: game Nb. #13126983
Posted by Jools on 10 Jan 2022 at 9:35AM
well this has been thought of in the rules, bbut the system still allows this abuse.

from the rules Timeouts, Vacation Days, Days Off and Game Clock

To prevent players from using their vacation days to help players gain advantage over their opponents in any manner, players are unable to set a vacation day within the next 24 hours, so be sure to set your vacation at least a day or two in advance.

There has been expressed some concern regarding the abuse of this ability. GoldToken has actively chased after players who abuse the system by setting up vacation days to help them play on time. Many of the worst offenders of the past no longer play here by choice for this reason...

this part made me laugh
Especially considering that only Platinum players have this ability and are GoldToken's most responsible group of players.

There ARE a lot of games going on in the Olympics when you sign up for every tournament, but I think I only timed out on one game for Summer Olympics and due to circumstances outside my control. I DO play some games faster than others, but those are the games that are easier for me to grasp and take less time looking at moves. As long as I'm completing the game before the 60 day timeout, I don't see a problem.
(#5329348) Re: game Nb. #13126983
Posted by golfnutrof on 10 Jan 2022 at 8:05AM
They need to reinstate a limit on game sign ups in the Olympics. Winning players always seem to sign up for all of them, play those they are winning to move on and ignore others. Another fault that needs to be corrected.

Posted by Jools on 9 Jan 2022 at 7:19PM
I consider that is wrong. If you are able to play some games, but unable to play all to avoid a timeout you should manually set vacation days, that what I do and it's what vacation days are designed for. Auto vacation was designed for emergencies
It's another flaw in GT's coding that encourages bad behaviour and doing away with it would solve many issues

I also notice a particular player has signed up to hundreds of Olympic games they have no hope of completing at their current daily rate
(#5328989) Re: game Nb. #13126983
Posted by rabbitoid on 9 Jan 2022 at 11:55AM
They do. When I go on a trip i usually take only a phone, I play only easy games and leave the rest to do a 24h rollover. I'm taxed a vacation day even if I play some games, which I consider the correct behaviour for the system.

How the pro slow players manage to do the trick all year long and not run out of vacation days is a mystery to me.

Another mystery I haven't solved is WHY people will pay for a platinum membership and do their "best" NOT to play.
(#5328985) Re: game Nb. #13126983
Posted by Jools on 9 Jan 2022 at 11:35AM
surely if he plays a few games a day (which he is) vacation days don't kick in.
If this is not the case, then perhaps the rules should be changed, emergency vacation is meant for when you can't play not for when you chose not to

Posted by rabbitoid on 9 Jan 2022 at 1:43AM
Don't hold your breath. VERY long.
Theoretically A platinum member has 60 allowed vacation days.
The 2 weekend days should mean you lose 5 vacation days a week if you don't play, but since the system is very tolerant (way too tolerant) it is more like 4, maybe even only 3 days per week because it allows for the time difference. Even if the system took off 5 days a week, the 60 day vacation still stretches out to 60/5=12 weeks, almost 3 months.
Your partner has a 3-day-timeout game that started mid 2018 with only 180 moves played.

Interesting question! I permitted myself to create an unrated test game with a "pal": #13230065. The answer is no, you don't jump out of the castle. So it's Parker rules.

I would have liked to tell MrWCF about this, but he's no longer with us.
(#5328601) Camelot Jumping
Posted by Point01IV on 8 Jan 2022 at 11:16AM
This isn't a bug per se, but I didn't know where to post this and I know this forum deals a lot with how games are programmed. The rules page of Camelot does not make this clarification, and (after research) I noticed this conflicts in both the Parker Brothers rules and the World Camelot Federation rules, and I didn't want to make a move without knowing how the GoldToken Rules were programmed.

The question is: If a piece jumps an enemy and lands in the opponent's castle, but can then make an additional jump over another piece that would take it outside the castle, does the system: 1) Allow that second jump to happen, 2) Not allow that second jump to happen, 3) Gives the player the choice to make the second jump?

Parker Brothers rules state that the jump must end once the piece enters the castle.

WCF states that the jump must continue even if it brings the piece outside the castle.

GT rules do not clarify.

Thank you for your help!

Thanks for the help! It makes sense now. I had completely dismissed the idea of using the 6, and failed to see the move created by moving the 1. I also failed to notice, after making the first move, that the board was waiting for me to move the 6.
(#5321341) Re: Backgammon Forced Move
Posted by Road Runner on 22 Dec 2021 at 7:56AM
Assuming you're talking about the current move (your turn #11), and assuming you've rolled a 1-6, which the game doesn't show me, presumably because I'm not a player, you can use the 6 after using the 1 to move a piece from B8 to B7, then moving that same piece from B7 to B1. Since this is the only way you can use the 6, you are required to do so.
(#5321335) Backgammon Forced Move
Posted by Reardon on 22 Dec 2021 at 7:38AM
I've encountered what I believe to be a bug in #13199347.

I rolled 6 and 1 on my turn. I have no checker that can move 6. But I should be able to move ANY checker 1. However, the board is only allowing me to move from a space that may have been able to move the 6, if it weren't blocked by my opponent's pieces. This will leave 2 blots open.

I'm not aware of a backgammon rule that would limit my move in this case.

Any insight?

Thanks!

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not, but this tournament is not registering when a person is eliminated or wins a bracket. There are a few of these brackets in this tournament that I've played all the games and will clearly not advance, but still remain uneliminated - which causes the tournament to take up a tournament slot for me, though I'm not active.

As far as I can tell, the initial double should be in someone's hand at the start of the round, but that didn't happen in game##12779796, turn #123, in the double-zero round.

The game ensures that the required first double is drawn by someone.

Not as far as I see it. Still my game , link above.
I play 8-8, draw. I get 3-0 (this seems to be pre-determined, I always get the same.) I don't like the 3-0 so I click on the link "undo move" or the button, or simply go back to the gamesheet and start again. I gan always play a 7 on the mexican train which is wong. Once I have seen the 3-0 the 8-8 and the draw of the 3-0 should be forced.

We have this logic in other games where there is a hidden information, for example xiphiasyn.

Posted by Totty on 5 Dec 2021 at 12:35PM
A site bug/issue perhaps. I saw a message at the top of my Gamesheet "congratulations to .... for winning at the ....". However the tournament finished over 2 years ago, and I think the person mentioned may now be deceased, and was someone I played with/chatted with a lot 4-5 years ago, so I was a little taken aback when I saw their name. It might be an idea to limit these messages to tournaments that have only finished recently to avoid this kind of issue.

Posted by Totty on 5 Dec 2021 at 11:47AM
I'd just like to confirm this bug is the case. In game 13120149, move 87, I can play a double (3), then draw from the boneyard and then "Undo Move" to go back to before when I played the double 3.

I shouldn't be able to see the next boneyard bone and then undo, so clearly a bug!
(#5314150) Grabble Race
Posted by G Clef on 5 Dec 2021 at 5:54AM
Just a comment/suggestion: Most of my games end rather quickly because either myself or my opponent can't make words in the first few moves of the game and so the other player wins rather quickly with little effort. The game relies less on skill and more on the draw of the letters. My suggestion is to make the board bigger and thus it will take more moves to reach the center of the board. This will give one time to recover from the problem of drawing poor letter and make the game more competitive. Just a thought...

(#5313804) Mexican train bug
Posted by rabbitoid on 4 Dec 2021 at 11:32AM
#13172373 my move 117.

I played a double 8 on the 3-8 and drew from the boneyard the next bone because I didn't have another 8. I drew an unplayable bone which ends my move. I then accidentally clicked on the "undo move" instead of "save" and surprise: The system undid the whole move. I am able now to play another move instead of the 8-8.

This is clearly a bug, it permits a player to "test" a double to see which bone he will draw after putting down the double, and play something else if he doesn't like the draw.

I'm leaving the move unplayed in case Mecir wants to test.

(#5312174) painted dice
Posted by grummbunger on 1 Dec 2021 at 10:40AM
in games with dice (backgammon for instance) you have white and black pieces. in correspondence games it is easy to forget your color. the problem is in the dice, they are white with black dots... all of them.
as this game is on the computer it is not a lot of overhead (in a real life board game) to make black dice with white dots in the e-dice factory. it would make a lot of sense I think when on returning to a correspondence game to see that it is black or white dice you are about to roll, thus you know your color.
(or as some kind of reward one could customize their dice with say rainbow like paint but that is a different suggestion all together and would require about 7 more squirrels in the e-dice factory, by my calculations.)

This is game #12967918. It has a time limit of 3 days per turn. If a player fails to make a move in time, that player forfeits the game.

Your opponent, jessaroo has timed out. If you want, you can pass the move back.

Jessaroo has already correctly been eliminated as he timed-out, why is it asking me if I want to pass the move back?

If it wasn't a tournament game I would be tempted to pass the move back to see what happens

Posted by littleblue on 6 Nov 2021 at 7:42AM
I can understand the frustration, but is this a bug? I can't see it, but maybe I am missing something. I think you will need to wait for another player to arrive at rung 9 to play pepperbeach, whoever wins that will play jazzbeth, whoever wins that will play laura lee and whoever wins that will play you. The only way I can see the ladder being adjusted to give you a game is if you go down a rung to rung 11 and play laura lee but that will only be a temporary fix. I think lack of games is normal for the person at the top of a ladder because you've got to wait for people to climb up from the lower rungs.
(#5303006) adjust a ladder please
Posted by eliphont551 on 6 Nov 2021 at 7:22AM
I'm on the top rung #12 of the Ludocarte ladder.
laura lee rung 11
jazzbeth on rung 10
pepperbeach on rung 9

None of these players have a game going. My last ladder game #13066436 with jazzbeth ended September 13. When the ladder gets ajusted, laura lee & I should have a game started. Smiling

#13143391 - Do you have a domino with a 4? You probably need to start the Mexican Train, down near the bottom right of the board once you click on a domino that fits. Smiling The Mexican Train always starts with the same number as the double that started the round.

looks fine to me, with my normal "medium" size
However if I go to adjust graphics it appears for both players on that screen, and if I choose "small" it remains for yankee rose, but is fine with all other sizes. So i would say it's a frame issue on how the graphics link to a player name, so long names mess up the format somehow

The game still posts
Twelve Men Morris: redclay vs. rabbitoid
Game over. Nobody won. (wrong)

And below, in the yellow box
The game is over. Open Seat won. (wrong)

The tournament still shows (The Twelve Men Morris Competition in The Oct 2021 ó 3-day round robin ó DIVISIONS Tournament). I add a screenshot because the results will change when other games finish.

I have made a check of all the Olympic games to identify those in "time up" state, there were yesterday 314 of them.

Unfortunately There's nothing I can do about those games, because I have no way of knowing if the player in a state of "time up" does not have vacation days (or automatic vacation) for the period, which would make it legitimate to overstep the clock.

The only thing I can guarantee is that the games above 60/61 days will be terminated.

I don't mean to spam, but it's also here, too. In one case, the person has gone over their 60 days of turns in the Olympics, it shows timed out. They can still make moves and then it shows time out, again, when I make mine. Currently 28 games of mine are showing that the opponent has timed out.

(#5287895) Re: Euro Domination 13086073 Lost Two Against One
Posted by M3 on 1 Oct 2021 at 1:35PM
I wrote that wrong. I slipped up. The "loss" occurred after I had taken the country; then when I clicked on something I lost two armies on that country after I had already taken it. Now if I was actually attacking the next country as I had been thinking of doing I have no problem with the loss of two armies except with my own poor judgment in attacking. Maybe I clicked on wrong things?

In the attack in which I captured the country I was against one defender. Losing two at once against one defender is not possible as one may lose only as many as one is attacking -- one or two -- each turn.

And I had a number of games showing as Time Up in which I was able to play. I did so except for in this one as I thought Euro Domination might have a bug.

I moved. If I notice "volunteer tabs" again I shall mention it.

Your profile used to show how many up and down votes you had, but now only shows a total so is somewhat pointless. How can "unhappiness" therefore be shown?

If a player kicks a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the player gets a point, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board.

There should not have been an additional point added on the next more when all lines were removed.

I have sent Tomas a note about this. Thumbs up

Votes on discussion boards are not related to votes on your profile. Profile votes give players a place to show player support/or unhappiness for slow playing. They are not affected by votes on the discussion boards in any way.

Discussion board voting is just for the post. Either you like it or you don't. We removed the down voting on discussion boards due to a single players actions. No glitch, nor is it a bug.

Now, Iíve noticed the discussion board votes are also reflected on my profile page, but erratically at best. (Not to mention we are no longer allowed to cast a thumbs down vote on site DBís, but thatís something for another day)

What operating system and version are you using ?
What browser, and version are you using?
When was the last time you did a full shutdown and a clean boot up ?
Do you have another browser available (if not - I am sure people will help with download suggestions after you mention the one you are using currently) ?
Can you log into your account using another browser, and does the same issue happen there...
Same lines... do you have another computer/tablet/phone you could use to log in to your account and confirm you see the same thing ?

I am sure any and all of the above will help identify the issue.

In whist game #13065811 I have one less card than my opponent - the missing card is again the 4 of spades. If we go to the last trick I will not be able to play a card at my turn.

Over the past 3 days I have had to resign a number of games because my screen is not showing all my cards and the only card i can play is one of the missing ones - happens in cribbage and now mau mau. I have cleaned cookies etc. with no good result. the latest game was a Mau mau game number #13074012.

My screen shows I have only one card left, 5 of clubs but requires me to play a card that I cannot see and connot select.

I resigned the game as that was my only option. Tried to offer a draw but was required to play a card to do that.

This is getting to be very annoying - please can you investigate and fix.

Game stats are still incorrect, too. Easy to tell since redclay and I don't have many games... the 'draw' registered as a loss.

Plus, there's the rules! They really need to be updated with what happens in this situation. Otherwise, you might play thinking not taking any pieces in the first phase would be a win for player two. Not to mention being all confused by the open seat or nobody wordings. I'd even put all that stuff in the rules just to keep someone from having to repeat all this reporting on the boards again in 6 months because it's still not fixed. Plus, that's just more work for you, or anyone running a tournament, if they want to play this variant. It's a shame; as I noted, I'm new to the game. I was rather liking it; but, bugs tend to make it less appealing.

Tournament count is still not OK

The Twelve Men Morris Competition in The 2021 Summer Olympics Group 3 Tournament, section 2 game#19: both players are now green, I guess this was fixed manually. However, csain1 received 1 point from the game, Big Giant Head 0.

In the meanwhile, same tournament section 1, game#15 ended, same result, board filled. on the tournament page for both players the game is red. However cmacker received 1 point, Point01IV received 0.
Same thing for section 1, games #8, #10, #14.

I guess the correction doesn't work retroactively. I'll check the tournament from now to see if the correction works.

Many thanks. I think this has definitely worked for the worldarama game as I had not played a move following the "glitch". The Ludodecarte games seem to be repeating the "lost" move but I think Shillotte and I are fairly relaxed about it as it probably won't affect the game overall. My guess is there was a site-wide drop out as the issue has affected two different game types at about the same time.

This bug (not fixed!) is affecting an Olympic tournament: The Twelve Men Morris Competition in The 2021 Summer Olympics Group 3 Tournament, round 1, section 2, game #19:

  1. Both Big Giant Head and csain1 appear in red (loss). In a regular draw both players appear in green.
  2. For some reason csain1 is given 1 point for this game (as if it is a draw), Big Giant Head 0 (as if it is a loss).

As for the game itself:
  1. this case should definitely be added to the rules as it is in contradiction to "A player with no valid moves available also loses the game."
  2. the "Nobody won" should be replaced by a regular draw message.

With all due respect, that makes no sense.

In the rules, the two situations that score points - dribbling the ball into the goal point of the opponent and trapping the opponent - are linked here, note the word "or". If you are correct in reading the rules to say that Player B should be awarded the point when Player A has moved the ball such that Player B is trapped and cannot make a legal move then it would also be correct to say that Player B should receive the 2 points when Player A has dribbled the ball into the goal point of Player B which is obviously completely wrong. Therefore, reading the rules to say Player B should receive the point for getting trapped is wrong.

And from a logical standpoint, why would the person that allowed themselves to get trapped deserve the point? Shouldn't the point go to the person that successfully worked at setting up the trap?

I have the most experience with Dice Paper Hockey as it's my favorite of the three; however, trying to trap the opponent is one of the basic strategies across all three Dice Paper games - Dice Paper Hockey, Dice Paper Basketball, and Dice Paper Football. And the rules for all three read the same:

From Hockey - "If a player moves a puck to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the player gets a point, the puck is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board."

From Basketball - "If a player dribbles a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board. The moving player gets 2 points for the goal, 1 point for the blocking situation."

From Football - "If a player kicks a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the player gets a point, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board."

It's been a long time since I've played Dice Paper Basketball; however, if you are correct to say Player B should receive the point when trapped by Player A, instead of Player A, I can say that almost every game of Dice Paper Hockey on this site has been erroneously scored because when Player B is trapped, Player A gets the point. (Except for that one dot on the Hockey board where the coding is obviously borked and no points are awarded.)

I'm a newer member of this site, only for the last 6 years, I often feel like a pup compared to people that have been with the site since it's founding or shortly after. I wasn't around when these games were introduced and I don't know the people who run the site, so, I'm not trying to rude or disrespectful. However, has the person or persons that are in charge of making sure these games play correctly ever played Dice Paper Basketball or Dice Paper Hockey? The rules say the same thing across the three Dice Paper games so it cannot be correct for the rules to mean one thing in one version and the complete opposite in the other two versions.

This is what Tomas replied.

As far as I can tell, this is working as intended. From the rules:

If a player dribbles a ball to the opponent's goal point, or to a point from which the other player can not make any further moves, the ball is moved back to the center, and all lines are removed from the board. The moving player gets 2 points for the goal, 1 point for the blocking situation.
That means that the points go to the player who has moved the ball to a blocked position.

Itís not the answer you are looking for, but itís the way the rules were written and supplied to us.
