Things like this should be exempt. You cannot cheat with these ones.

This could be a level of punishment just before the bans. So you get:
  • Warnings
  • Medals stripped
  • Ban

The C&A mods know what punishments they can hand out so it would be up to them where to slot this into their scale of things.

I dunno guys, the whole stripping process is meant to be harsh. I don't think it's a matter of which medal you got for which; it's got to be all or nothing or else no one will take it seriously. There can't be any "safe" areas if this suggestion is going to be effective. It's all about humbling the person, not taking away their shiny bits.

That's my take on it too. Medals awarded for gameplay.

I know this thread is getting long, but I will clarify the reason why a point "reset" will not be used. A point reset (back to 1000) points does hurt the offending user. It will take them a while to get back even if they get more points per game initially. But the issue is that it hurts the people they play against. This "private" that suffered the point reset presumably has some skills beyond those of a private. So, the next several players who play against the "private" suffer higher losses and are awarded fewer points than otherwise would have happened. A better solution would be a point "penalty" which attempts to put the offending user back to the level s/he would have been at without the cheating. Of course, there are problems with that too, which pretty much boil down to a subjectivity/objectivity debate. Do we set a specific one-size-fits-all point penalty for certain infractions (objective penalties), which may punish users inequitably in specific instances? Or do we have the penalty decided on a case-by-case basis (subjective penalties), which increases workload for mods and opens the door for criticism in every case.

If you want a point penalty, just knock them down 1 rank in points or have a 10% reduction. Which ever one is the greater loss.

We're talking about *manimal in another thread, but I remember duality (Mad Pineapples), Benjikat, Blitzaholic, and PInocheckio. JeffHardy, Fredviii

I was reading the "infamous multies" thread by beckytheblondie in general discussions, when something caught my eye. Benjikat, here claimed to be the multi of Blitzaholic, has played 1700+ games, yet has ONE medal, a special contribution medal. Didn't they hand out medals for standard/dubs/trips/quads/ in 2008, or was he stripped of his medals?
in which case, this HAS been done before!?
(my point being that is is impossible to play 1700+ games, win 50%, and not have bronze medals in standard or whatever type of game he played)

benjikat got kicked on 1st of june 2008
viewtopic.php?f=634&t=53112&hilit=medals+2008
medals were not instituted untill the 9th of june 2008. You only get medals for games when you end a game while the medal was instituted. So when the first time he would finish a game, he would automaticly also get al the associated medals he has earned thus far.

Blitz never was a multi.

fact are important, esp if they are searchable. Beckie should know better. no insult intended Arama86

Quick questions:

(1) if the positions in here were succinctly summarized in one post, would that hasten the process of implementing this suggestion?

(2) is this thread the same as this thread?

I think the issue with this being implemented is the change in policy. I suppose that summarizing the positions can not hurt, but I think the issue is really whether or not the admin and owners want this to happen.

One small coding issue is that the bronze, silver, gold, and soon to come diamond medals are all issued automatically based on statistical information. So, as an example, if you strip a players team medals, currently they will all come back once he wins another game. So, it's actually not enough to strip a player of medals. You also have to strip him of victories or create a mechanism that causes the count to reset.

I don't really know if they are the same. They are similar. We have the ability to strip medals.

The red part is actually what I think might have been part of Doom's suggestion in the other thread. Tbh, I'm not entirely sure what either of you were saying in that other thread.
