Classicist Application

Postby MasterSifu » 15 Jun 2013, 01:48

Greetings!

I would like to apply to join the Classicists please.

I have completed 5 games: 3 ranked and 1 schools (with Bindlestiff, game #56762) and 1 friends (#55467). I have 2 more ranked games going.
I believe I have zero surrenders and zero NMRs/100% consistency.

I've been lurking for a while on the boards, so I'm aware there's a discussion going on whether or not to accept friends games when considering an application, so I understand if this application is rejected (especially with the mentor game), but I do have zero NMRs, and my last 2 ranked games were marred by an absurd amount of surrenders (3 in one game, 4 in another!) meaning that the games were quite meh to play after a while. So I am hoping with this I'll be able to join some reliable games...

Thank for your consideration (whatever the outcome)!

Best,
MasterSifu

Hello MasterSifu!

Great to see you on the site, and many thanks for your enquiry. You do indeed have no surrenders and no NMRs to your name, although that is on the basis of the 3 rank/norank games that you have finished. I am impressed by your awareness of the discussion that has been taking place, and although we have not enacted that change yet it is pretty clear the way that discussion has gone. In fact, the only reason that the change has not been enacted yet is because I am waiting for some input from the other moderators before I do.

In those circumstances, I think the best thing to do is probably to just hold off on this until the two rank games that you currently have underway have finished. Shouldn't take too long, and then it will be a pleasure to welcome you into the group.

Thanks for your patience!

Classicist Application

Hi,

I am currently a bronze member and would like to apply to become a silver one. I have completed 12 games with no surrenders or NRMs. I surrendered once when I first joined the site, and if I am correct it was done within a matter of minutes of joining.

On a different note, how can I become a premium member if the country I am in (Belarus) doesn't actually permit such transactions? Would it be possible to use someone else's account to pay?

Hi Dinamo

Yes, you have 13 finished games of which 10 are rank/norank. Your stats actually show you have 2 NMRs, but with a reliability of over 99% that is more than good enough for Silver membership. On the basis that your one surrender was right at the start of your membership of the site, I am happy to promote you as requested. Welcome to Silver membership!

Regarding methods of paying for Premium if you are unable to pay by card in your country, that is something I suggest you PM a member of the site admin about for advice.

Just want to echo Gareth's comments re MasterSifu. Hopefully you'll see fit to go from lurker to active contributor as it seems you'll be an asset to the community.

I took a break from the site for a while. I'm back now. Hi.
