: : : 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: : We are not suggesting to move the world here, just perhaps an intelligent conversation...about a rule that has been outdated and consequently changed.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: : I can sit here for hours with sound on and not get a game , there is simply not enough players for this outdated rule to be effective.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
I criticize your close mindedness and jumping to the extreme and not wanting to have constructive conversation...you just close your mind and say No.
And calling me an idiot and saying I'm stupid is out of line but well within your character I guess...
