Ok, that's not his job. But that would be mods' one.
Either mods declare that insulting is allowed, or mods ban all people that do not abide strictly to the rules.
The two cannot exist simultaneously.

I don't have a system or the time to know about every single instance of this. I'm a volunteer. Right now, users can simply blacklist people they don't want to play with. It isn't a perfect system but the system does work. My advice is not to worry about awful people being awful to others when you can put them in your personal blacklist and never see them again.

Ok. gotcha. thanks.

How do these people get banned? I mean, how does a moderator know when and who to ban? I got blacklisted supposedly three days ago for not granting undos. Am I in trouble because I'm ons someone's list? That seems abusable.

Are we allowed to post cheater-threads?

Bans happen based on compounding evidence or me/Stef just happening to know someone is a bad user. You aren't going to get banned from one person blacklisting you. Do not post threads publicly naming anybody. Just use the blacklist feature if you encounter someone you do not want to play with (for any reason) and move on. It isn't your job to ensure anyone meets justice.

Please blacklist these users instead of worrying about the why. It isn't worth the stress.

Hi, I want to report user Melkor, he said he hoped my kids die of Aids just starting the game and then slowplayed for 45 minutes to finally quit. That behaviour is unacceptable and deserves punishment. Thanks.

Please resign and use the blacklist feature instead of playing out these kinds of games. Thanks.

For what it's worth, I have already banned this user several times. He keeps coming back, and until the client has a better way to deal with him, not much can be done.

But, like, what's the problem with people "farming hearts" even if it's possible? They don't gain anything from it. Seems like a pointless thing to be concerned about.

... So they'd be courteous in games?

No. But I could imagine a "vote me good" thread in some forum, where you meet to get a heart-vote. I can also imagine spam-accounts used only to vote. I can even imagine ppl threaten others in chat, like "give me a heart or you will get 50 bolts from my downvote-bot-army".


I dunno, that seems like an irrational fear to me.

No.
PPl would start to farm hearts like they farm likes at social media.

I took care of that user today.

Username is johnwhy

Here are my wishes, from most important to less. I didn't mention the other points : not important or not relevant to me.
 
1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
That's my number one wish, since I'm enjoying to play against bot(s) while traveling.
 
2.3. A stronger bot with a setting for different play styles
Actually, a bot able to change play style during a game would be better.

10. Option to hide the log
Would appreciate that option and not to have to click in the log to choose the order of actions when starting a turn (Box in the main window)

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
All piles, reserve, effects or duration card should appear in the main window, between turns, and so on.

 7. Option to invite specific players to your table
Needed. It's always odd to kick a player you don't know while waiting for your regular partners.

 8. More translations (to what language?)
French would be welcomed...

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion
My last wish on the list, with the translation in french : could be welcome for newbies, when they are not in front of you around the table !

French is coming soon. (Also traditional Chinese)

1. An offline client, allowing you to play campaigns against bots
I want this, if only to reduce the number of complaint threads. Sounds nice anyway

2. A bot with a setting for different play styles
Don't need it

3. A strong bot.
Matthewmatosis has a term called "Artificial stupidity." I think it's important for casual players to have a bot that knows what it's doing but doesn't play optimally. Me personally, all I really think is needed is a Big Money X bot.

4. Options for timed games
Please

5. Options for undo settings
No information always, and a setting to disallow all other requests.

6. Online mini-tournaments; the option to easily create one for you & your friends.
Might be fun, but low priority

7. Option to invite specific players to your table
Needed

8. More translations (to what language?)
Some are on the way, as I know. I think this should mostly be worked on just as it comes up, but I would prioritize Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish. There are also several Indian players on DO who might benefit from Hindi, Tamil, Punjabi, etc. Maybe ask Indian players?

9. Better animations when cards are gained/bought/played/...
A bit controversial, but I really don't care about this at all. I think the client looks fine.

10. Better visualization of split piles, Archive/Crypt contents, Prince targets, ...
I'd like this

10. Option to hide the log
Seems completely unnecessary, especially if you do 10)

11. Android app (or just improved compatibility?)

In theory I would use it, but I don't really care either.

12. iPhone app (or just improved compatibility?)
Down with Apple

13. Downloadable game logs
Sure

14. Improved moderation (dealing with chat abuse, slowplayers, ...)
Almost everyone here is saying they don't care about this, but as a moderator, I think some improvement is needed here. I don't think there are any easy answers. A Report button might help a little, but doesn't solve the underlying causes. Muting chat & Timed play would probably go a long way here.

15. Tutorial on how to play Dominion &
16. Tutorial on how to play dominion online.
I don't think 15) is needed at all. Some kind of interactive tutorial for 16) would be good. Maybe get Adriaan on that at some point.

Support / Re: What's with the card selection lately?

If the Store tab shows that you own expansions, then *maybe* the familiar cards have been reset. This is just a guess, though, because I renewed before the old subscription ran out.


If that's the problem, then to do what Ingix describes, go in the "Familiar Cards" tab and click on the option "All expansions."

The info is all on the Store page.

Silver subscription unlocks: Intrigue, Seaside, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Hinterlands, Guilds

Gold subscription unlocks: Intrigue, Seaside, Alchemy, Prosperity, Cornucopia, Hinterlands, Dark Ages, Guilds, Adventures, Empires, Nocturne

You can pay for any time range you would like (by some definition of 'any') by selecting an end date with the calendar tool.

« on: 07 January 2018, 05:39:13 AM »
When you pay in the store for a Gold sub, it factors what sets you already have in when "upgrading" for Nocturne. In other words, if you just set an end date in a range you are already subscribed, you'll be paying just for Nocturne. This is not clear on the store page right now and hopefully will be once it's updated.

Yeah, I can see how it would happen after an automatch. I personally never use the rematch feature, but I suppose if someone does this would come up for them.
