truly who cares about the above

people don't play in them anyway, so you keep saying
why make such a big deal about it

Budweiser is a mod who at least logs on and plays has a chat, unlike a lot of mods and other players

but lets remember one thing here they give their time for free, yes free, people cheating, making up fake accounts being given accounts, in the last 6 weeks you've made new accounts deactivated and you go on playing the wounded martyr get over yourself

show a little respect to these people
the owner of the site isn't here, these guys are doing their best and for what so you and others can demand they are booted from their roles

all you and other do on this site is make it unpleasant for many people who just enjoy playing the game

maybe try it for a while, its fun

It isn't a big deal anymore to me Craig (and yes i played in it and won the prize so for once from your logic since i played in the event, i can post on the issue, yay!), also people care, especially those who won a prize to start with.

I admit i wasn't upset but disappointed as i entered the tournament for the prize (i won't lie) rather than the tournament and it got some numbers (around 16 players i think while not great it is good for todays standard). I won the tournament twice, won a free Premium Membership (prefer the cash to go towards the PC rather than Premium if i'm honest) and didn't receive a prize (since last year). Some members saw how i felt and how i never complained (and still not as its only Premium) so posted in frustration that they believe it is a fake prize tournament to draw numbers.

I'm not bothered about the prize anymore but would thank Staff if i ever got it but if a future prize tournament is done then people may be reluctant to join due to what happened the last time which would be now.

Not having ago at Staff or Bud as know he tried his best with Super Tournaments and things so hopefully i won't be muted for posting my side as a player involved for prizes. If i would get muted for this then i would lose a bit of trust in Staff as i'm not being negative or argumentative except the top part but that could be edited out.

Cheers

But getting off topic a bit but felt i should post as was for my benefit mainly.

Regarding the topic, Nick has to show interest for site to move forward and has to take steps around Java for when Oracle close down the site. Maybe on the Homepage or something or under Help add a line or two saying how after Java 8.31 you may experience problems so 8.31 or under is recommended with download links which would be a start as well as in game announcement at regular intervals.

its a true shame

however I will make this point, it took some one to offer something for people to join tournament's

and the prize was premium, well all joking aside
most of the players that play in tournaments couldn't enter because of the time arranged, again by many who don't play in them to start with.

not a dig but you don't play tournament's and totally disagree with premium membership, so i guess it doesn't hurt so much

however if it was agreed then really whether the person over stepped the mark or not it should've been honoured

but 16 players entering says it all, i would've cancelled it rather than play it

there are more than 16 players on this site that have done more to help, that don't even get acknowledged that would've deserved premium


in my oppinion

Post why you would want this site to change/stay or go? Let nick know...

Anything to say?? feel free! (No language please or you be muted straight away, thanks).



We need better staff, including a better nick ... That is definitely a good place to start.

Yes and i'm one of those 16, Ran Clans for 8 years and Snooker Clan League for 6 years along with coding excel for them.

Currently coding excel for the Pool Leagues and once i got a recognition thread from either jay_afc or hot_stuff because they saw the effort i put into Funky.

People may not realise it but i have done my share for the site and with my work i think i am on par with Staff with amount of work they do but other than Staff, i wouldn't mind you naming 16 that has done more than myself, not many out there, okay people buy Premium but other than that.

But here is the thing, If you borrowed money from a loan shark then they would be expected to be paid back plus interest, People believed because it is a "Prize" Tournament that players should get their prize. As i said i don't care about the prize anymore, not whined to Admin over it but it is the principle behind it for future events if Staff ever do it again so i told my side of the story.

I praise Bud for everything he has done regarding tournaments (except the prize part but know he meant well).

BUT It wasn't just Premium, Not sure how true it was but a chance at being a Mod was on the line as well which is the main reason i entered and randomly got Premium which lead to this mess.

the prize was to be a mod

really

you a mod ????????


I could easily make a list of 16 people on this site James
very easily, most never ask for recognition
but deserve it in a big way

this person wouldn't get into my 16
but deserves credit
would be Ash

trying his best to help people sort Java to get and stay on this site

a small incite to someone who isn't there
but he never once said look at me
he just did it and continues to do so

credit where its deserved

I do what I can to keep as many players active and able to play, I don't do it for recognition purposes or brownie points.

I keep reading people mentioning Oracle and Java being rendered useless and stopping. I really don't think those people are fully aware of what could happen or what implications it may have or not on this site.

The fact Java 8 Update 31 is the recommended version only goes to show and emphasise how whatever Oracle decide their plan of action to be shouldn't cause any trouble for us. We already use and recommend a Java version which is way past its expiration date...yet it still works.

The only time this site will be inaccessible will be if and when ALL browsers including IE (Internet Explorer) cease all functionality with Java or ANY plugins. Java is a plugin, it used to work on Google Chrome for a short period of time under the NPAPI...now they don't support any plugins. (Same with Opera which went first)

Mozilla Firefox have expressed their plans to follow suit so there's another browser soon to be useless with Java. Torch browser haven't stated their intentions not that I'm aware of but they are so prone to malware attacks and vulnerability it's best to steer clear. Comodo IceDragon still works and Internet Explorer haven't said they'll be stopping plugins themselves.

So if IE continue to support plugins then Google, Firefox, Vivaldi & others can still use Java all be it with the IE TAB workaround.

The game can still be played!

I don't do it for recognition either but to say i haven't done enough for the site is a joke to be honest. I have done more things than Craig's entered tournaments.

Calls me out and all he does is enter tournaments, doesn't have a Clan, doesn't run a League and doesn't do Excel.

Never asked for recognition but i got a thread once just by doing what i do for the Snooker Clan League.

Even though i don't go out, i have done more than enough, helped out a lot of people and still doing excel for the league and brought back Snooker Clan League which is going to take up much of my time but people don't care, what more do people want me to do? i'm not Nick.


James, buddy, your getting wound up by the_priest. Its his thing. He suggests harmony and pleasant conversations but incites the opposite. Where are are all the nice people gone he asks? Well they had a few chats with him and cut their throats. Thats what happened to them. You do more than your share as does Ash to be fair to him. Craig does nothing but play worthless tournaments and dedicate them to his few chums and then sit in the lobby looking for a row. Its what he does!!

Certainly not worth wasting your time or emotions on thats for sure

ignore the trolls... must ignore the trolls...

learn from Uncle Jingles

Yep 2nd argument tonight, just got me frustrated a bit but if i plan to do youtube one day, then it's going to be worse unfortunately.

I have heard some info on prizes tonight which if true then it changes my whole ordeal on prizes and take back what i said about them.

Post why you would want this site to change/stay or go?

I would like this site to continue, I met a woman on here
who ive now been with for the best part of 4 1/2 years and 4 other people ive met in person, set to meet another tomorrow night
the site is second to none

I would like to thank Nick for that alone
there are many people who have made friends not just virtual but in real life

the site has its problems, but so has life in general
its just a shame a few spoil it for so many
