: Rule 1.
: Your Pyramid name must match the name you use in chat and play your matches with exactly. Your name may not be obscene or abusive in any way. If your Pyramid name is found to be abusive towards another user your account will be removed. Also, Pyramid IDs must contain no more than 3 underscores with none consecutive.
: Lauwass changes his name to Scacco_Matto, votes for himself (Lauwass) as a joke for the Pyramid Hall of Fame, fools around with an honourable player's name as a school boy.
: Brainsturgeon, says he is unaware of this issue, so he would take it up with the Pyrops. Now... if he didn't know before, why didn't he count "Scacco_Matto"'s vote for Lauwass? Even though it should never be counted...
: Anyway, Lauwass remains at the Pyramid.
Lauwass did break this rule but played no games in this period of time, therefore he could have hacked scacco_matto for all we know and had that yahoo id ready to play, but never found time to play, so this is something that isnt known for sure.
: Rule 14.
: If you are a Top 10 player you must play a minimum of 5 games per 7 day period against lower ranked players (defenses). The 7 days will run from 6 PM EDT/10 PM GMT/12:00 AM CET Sunday through the following 6 PM EDT/10 PM GMT/12:00 AM CET Sunday. Even though they aren't reported Pyramid games, draws are considered defenses. If you make a defense that results in a draw, please send the game date and time to firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that you receive credit for the game. The penalty for fewer than 5 defenses will be a 20 rank drop.
: Westallgaeuer, benoni_the_kid and Ilduce3000 failed on this rule and remain top 10.
: Westallgaeuer = 0 games in that week period.
: Ilduce3000 = 3 games in that week period.
: Benoni_the_kid = 3 games + 2 on Sept 2nd, Sunday, BEFORE 6pm EST. So only 3 counted.
Brain hasnt been around much, and these people could have been on vacation, therefore granting them exception from that rule, and even if they return, they dont have to make up all those games in one day for the whole week just because they didnt return on a monday. Also cases has a rule that drops a player to the bottom of the ladder if they dont play the person directly behind them or defend their rung every 3 days, this is obviously not being enforced, so no comparisons can be used.
: Way to preserve a true image on the Pyramid, Pyrop Team !
: (Shame that half of you are constantly absent, maybe you would have acted on this, still, quite a big maybe)
: Go ahead and bash me as much as you want.
: I really can't give a damm.
: What I said above are facts taken from pyramid archives, it's all there for everyone to see, but apparently nobody speaks up. What's the matter? Not up to the challenge of a debate with the Pyrops?
: Because it seems obvious to me they're not doing their job as they should, as clearly shown.
As for the pyramid archives, they rule and its the best website ive ever seen, but most people dont dwell on little things like this, but i guess it gets boring being suspended from the only fair ladder around and with people finally losing intrest in cases, that you are trying to bring people back here, but i dont think it will work. Oh well mercury, another failed attempt in my opinion, c ya around
