shame and humiliation

Postby NJLonghorn » 17 Jul 2018, 01:28

After working hard to build a perfect record with well over 1000 turns, I sustained my first-ever and second-ever NMRs this past week. Unfortunately, both occurred in the same game, resulting in an auto-surrender. No excuse -- I just made the mistake of signing up for a game with 12-hour deadlines when my real life was busy.

Is this a violation of Section 4(B) of the Classicist Constitution? If so, is this the right way to self-report the violation under Section 3(H)?

In any event, I humbly throw myself on the mercy of the Court.

I have never surrendered and never NMR'd, and hope to keep that alive. Never mind, the perfect run has come to an end. Dammit, DAMMIT, DAMMIT.

I'd like to speak for the character of the defendant. And ask the court for mercy for this poor soul who got caught up in something that was simply more than he could handle. I beg the court for mercy for this poor pitiful soul......

Amen

Lol.

Possibly the longest posting of The Shiv ever. It must be true, then.

Now that Lord Fatmo is going to start catching up on pending applications, I thought I'd update this post. Since my surrender in July 2018 (Superbia, game #146431), I have completed 9 ranked games with no further NMRs or surrenders. The rules aren't super-clear on what is required for reinstatement, but I plead for mercy.

The way I'm reading the rules, it looks like if we follow the letter of the law then you should have been bumped down to Bronze from your previous gold membership and then you kind of make your way back from there.

So...I think this means I should just switch you to Bronze now, and then after you complete one more rank or no-rank game, apply again to be bumped up to silver.

If anyone thinks I've misread anything, let me know.

Your consistency is ridiculously good overall!
You don't know what I'm thinking...because I don't know what I'm doing.

I think you are reading it right. However, the decision is supposed to be made by a minimum of 2 mods. So until you get Jon or Bou to vote with you, I think I'm safe. :mrgreen:

jk, I'm happy to accept a Bronze demotion. As you say, I will only need to complete 1 game to get back to Silver, then 5 more to Gold and 5 more after that to Platinum.
