You're trying to cheat the system now?

A man walks into a store, steals something and walks away. A security camera captures everything. Police watch the camera, catch the man and hold him in custody. A week later the tape is accidentally destroyed. Since there is no more evidence, the man should obviously go free [/sarcasm].

Pistos, don't waste your time on this guy. He's too busy complaining about his greylist status to be willing to do anything about it. It isn't up to you to prove your prior decision, and quite frankly I'm much less inclined to sympathize with him because of his attitude.

And if a player with a bad attitude doesn't want to play WWPA members, well that's what I joined the WWPA for anyway.


Keep up the good work & thanks for providing a (free) service to the Weewar community.

I hope stinkypants isn't a WWPA member as his profile suggests. If he is, I believe this would be a very good reason to boot him.

Wow, that was incredible. Definitely looks like unfriendly kicking to me and not WWPA behavior.

Yup. I already sent an email requesting he be added to the WWPA Greylist.
I also have a couple ideas about how to limit this kind of behavior: here's one.

As per the presented evidence, stinkypants has been greylisted.

To be clear: Uncertified members or members with low certification should be considered equivalent to non-members as far as trustworthiness goes regarding the WWPA code of conduct.

So what counts as low certification?

And is low cert better or worse than uncertified? I'm currently uncertified, but not quite sure what I can do to change that, other than contine to play by the guidelines (btw they are all pretty much common sense/good sportsmanship anyway) and hope another member certifies me?

Also, there doesn't appear to be anwyay to leave negative feedback for users, other than removing your certification, if you'd previously certified them.

I'd say Certified > Low Certified > Uncertified/Non-member > Gray listed.

Always follow the guidelines and play certified members. Once you play with one who believes you adhere to the conduct they have the right to certify you.

As for removals, keep all evidence and get the member gray listed. Pistos can then remove their certification as well if necessary.

Which means that if you're a member, and play with someone you feel follows the guidelines you should certify them, even if they haven't registered with the WWPA yet.

Another question, Pistos, how often are the certification (points?) updated? Does this happen in real time?

Lucian

You can only certify members of the WWPA. If you feel someone you know and played with deserves to be certified you tell them to join. I mean its not just something you do with EVERYONE, but if you notice in a game that they follow the WWPA rules then certify them. If they haven't joined the WWPA they either don't know or don't care. You don't HAVE TO certify anyone as a member. It is just your right to let others know that your opponent is fair.

As for certifications they appear to be update live... or just very very quickly.

I'd like to suggest putting [WWPA] in the game name to let people know you expect them to follow the guidlines (Thanks for the idea, Lucian!)

Hmm.. good idea. I just failed at being creative with names and went with something in relation to what made me start that game in the first place, but nice pick. Simple codes that let others know what you're trying to do.

[WWPA] - Follow WWPA Guidelines
[TRNM] - Tourney game where kicking will happen if over time

Tags like that would actually be very useful. I guess you could extend it to other things such as:

[FFA] - Free For All
[2PT] - Two Player Teams
[3PT] - Three Player Teams

A map name is sometimes a pain in the ass to come up with and you could effectively be very informative via the game title alone. The other thing is that when you have 10 games going (particularly if with the same players) its easy to mistake which one has what type of rules so this could definitelly benefit in such a scenario.
