It looks a joke when a prog user has crown beside with red mark. It means that we are not accepting human skill but appriciating artificial intelligence. I will suggest not to crown a prog User that will regard and promote the fair game.
When a prog user gets crown fully rewarded for cheating showing a red mark and a crown dignify the cheating. Indirectly says no matter if one cheat even than is the champion we admit and encourage cheating that is failure of judgement and rewards.
I don't know why cheating is allowed on this site and to give one of the biggest cheats the crown is disgraceful!! In all fairness it would be far better to award the better players who deserve the crown.
It is the norms on what we operate that determine the developement what get. Lets ask everyone what says wether a cheat deserves rewards. I dont think anyone will agree to reward a cheat rather will say to discourage a cheat to make society free and fair. I will keep comments on till results.
Any thing cant stand long on a weak foundation. If flyordie is set to develope on cheat and lie foundation we can imagine where it heads ultimate destruction because cheat and lie is the major cause of destruction.
I was always shocked to see a program user wearing the crown next to his red !. So i want to thank very very very much the site "fly or die" for the modification of this rule. It looks to me very important for moral considerations to reward honest players and not "cheaters". So thank you again, and be sure that the great majority of the players is very satisfied, even if they do not express themselves officially. I have talked to enough players of reversi to be really sure about this. Long life to this site !!!
No please, do not call me a bad mouth !!! I am friend with a player that deserved the crown so many times and was sad about not having it !!! So my first feeling is really the pleasure of seeing players talented and hard workers on the game get this reward of the crown !!! This is 95 % of my real feelings. Now, may be less noble 5% of me is also satisfied to see people without talent or comprehension or even love or taste for this game no more parading with an undeserved crown and indifferent to the honest players deprived of it. I have the same kind of feelings for the doping in sport. Yours sincerely.
