: : Let's get rid of Ranks then won't have to worry about 1 vs 2 or the RDM so no more Ladder--would that help?
: Thankfully not every one is like thummp.
: Or nothing would ever change...we'd still have slaves , women would never vote , and gay people would still be ostracized .
: Thankfully people sometimes welcome change and we move on.
: We are not suggesting to move the world here, just perhaps an intelligent conversation...about a rule that has been outdated and consequently changed.
: It may be time for another change.
: SecondHandLo is correct in his assessment that this rule actually causes less games to be played because one would have to wait to play his/her spot...before playing everyone else and even then someone can bump someone and then poof spot game might not be possible.
: I can sit here for hours with sound on and not get a game , there is simply not enough players for this outdated rule to be effective.
: When someone finally does come in and ask for a game why should i have to wait for my "spot" ?
: It could be another hour before someone else comes in...I have lots of time to be here...others do not.
: Perhaps make it apply to top 3 or abolish it completely...but as it is now some of us feel it sucks.
: I agree with the fact that when one is here to play anyone and everyone as he does (in no particular order) that he should not be penalized for that
: We are looking for suggestions to solve a problem.
: You fly right off the handle right away...
: That's not constructive debate...that's the pigeon on the chess board....get over yourself.
Continue to criticize me because I don't conform to your way--It's a no wonder no one wants to write about beating a dead horse
Was changed from 10 to 5--Still not happy
