Symmetry wrote:Players found guilty of cheating should be stripped of their medals

The general opinion so far is that medal stripping should be a punishment, and the discussion currently concerns what category of cheating should be dealt with, and whether certain medals should be excepted.

My thoughts, as a whole, are that all medals regarding standard gameplay should be stripped, and that it should be reserved for cheaters who use multis to manipulate the system.

Current OP quoted.

Umm, what do you want discussed if you think there is already a concensus?

No matter how many times you stubbornly keep repeating a statement, it will not make it true. No consensus here.

Thanks,

Kind of a strange question. I think the suggestion should be moved up a notch, given that there seems to be a consensus and no clear objections. Do you have an objection, or are you prolonging this for some other reason?

Full disclosure Chapcrap- do you have an ulterior motive? Have you ever been caught, warned or noted by the Cheating and Abuse team?

Irrelevant. If he objects, then he objects. It would be his opinion, and his right to express it. Also, personally trying to attack others who do not agree with you will not help the topic advance either.
You need to let the suggestion develop, and quit bogarding the topic. You have made it plain that you do not count or listen to anyones objection to this suggestion. The suggestion team will be able to tell if it is to go or not without you constantly repeating your anthem of 'consensus and lack of objections' regardless of posts to the contrary.

Thanks,

If he objects, I think it's a fair question to ask why he objects? No?

As always, please feel free to object to the suggestion, but if you still can't give a reason for your objection, I would suggest that you examine the general consensus in support of the suggestion, and find the part that you disagree with.

Sure, you can simply ask, ' Why do you object?', instead you chose to color it and create a loaded question. Now THAT is NOT ok.

Plenty of objecting discourse has been provided. Feel free to examine them to remind yourself of the lack of general consensus of the suggestion.


Thanks,

I object to this. Not a cheater. Have no reason to worry. Just think it's going to take a lot of time to research which medals were earned while cheating and which weren't.
taking a break from cc, will be back sometime in the future.

My stubbornness is mostly me asking you why you disagree. You've once again posted a message without any content.

I changed the OP, as per your demands, and yet you shift the goalposts.

What, now. do you want me to do in order for you to argue in good faith?

Fair enough- i was being a bit sneaky on that and directing the post toward Chappy- ChapCrap got noted for some very sus behaviour, and I was involved in pointing it out. He's currently under notice from the mods, and he's not happy that people are watching his behaviour.

That's me coming clean on that post. I hope ChapCrap is able to talk about what he has to gain or lose, or simply if he's able to come clean about what motivates his posts.

But cheers, Pat, I disagree, but at least you posted a point that can be discussed.

Why do you think it would take too long?

How about addressing the concerns which you have yet to address. You are very good about trying to direct others back to the thread for points, yet you so conveniently ignore them when the content you so ardently seek is right there as well, sitting unaddressed. You misunderstand, I do not wish to argue with you. I will debate the soundness of this suggestion, but a debate will require participation from you that you have yet to provide. I do not want to have to keep repeating things to a person with selective hearing(per se) as I have done once already. Your alteration to the OP has not addressed any of the issues brought up thus far, and as such, I still await any points/justifications vs my previous points. If you decline to address them then it would not make any sense to countenance the flawed suggestion.

Thanks,

J

I can only ask you again- why do you object?

What are the objections you feel haven't been addressed?

I'm sorry, but I can only ask you to deal with me fairly.

Fairly? I have been more than fair. You have been purposely thick and intentionally have ignored or played down valid arguments, all the while maintaining the faulty assumptions of a general consensus and fully addressed concerns.

I will do you a solid and repost the links so you don't have to search for my content that you ignored. Perhaps this time you will take the time to properly address them.

Symmetry, I don't think anyone here cares to hear your characterization of other people's behavior, your belief on what the mods are doing or your take on chap's emotional state.

Keep it civil and on topic. And for the love of God, address Jghost's points rather than repeating the line about there being a consensus. The fact that no one else is willing to do it makes me believe that there is far from a consensus.

It would take too long to count up how many unique wins may have been because of the cheating and whether or not there will be any change in medal status. A point reset or a giant asterisk permanently next to their name would be much more feasible.

Now for a question for you. Being as you haven't played a game for over 7 months, why are you so concerned with cheaters, stripping medals or the high profile cases involving some of the more well known players on the site, such as highlanderattack or chapcrap? I do not care for cheaters one bit but I don't spend 2% of the time chasing them and I actually play the game at hand and could be adversely affected by it. The only way you are affected by this is having a little more excitement in the forums.

note, i only mentioned an abuse case against chapcrap as you mentioned you believed there was some mod work being done on that, I haven't seen anything outside of that and this shouldn't be taken as me thinking he has been abusing the site in anyway, show some proof in a separate thread if you want me to contemplate on that at all.
