Re: Suggested front page changes

great ideas, qq. my 2 cents: 1) the cheats section doesn't do much harm as it only explains how to cheat in the windows version. since the rankings require a clone to be used, i don't see any problem there. also, the number of videos on youtube featuring these cheats suggests that there are quite a ...

android?

hey guys, i friend asked me which ms app i'd recommend for android. since i don't have a smartphone and would rather not play at all than on a touchscreen, i don't know any ms apps and thus can't compare them. so, who of you knows which apps are good. of course they can't be compared to ms with a mo...

Re: Convention(s) for realtime vs. t+1

i do not intend to change the way i post my games. a much easier convention would be that people posted at least time, 3bv and 3bvs. or if people bothered remembering who uses rt and who doesn't. it's not like people constantly switch back and forth. as far as i'm concerned i automatically assume th...

Re: Solving contest speed+%

this contest doesn't seem to make much sense to me. especially not using vista minesweeper. with its 'replay the same board' function. i would blast every second board on purpose and check it for forced guesses. thus 50% win percentage would be no problem. also, this would be considered upk/cheating...

Re: 3bv limits

The first one: because a metric that is affected by rotation/reflection does a poor job of representing human play - plus, you could have the situation where a board is considered too easy but the reflected board is considered OK, which is unfair. but human play is as well affected by rotation and ...
