It would probably be helpful to say the game # of the game you surrendered.
If it is one of your last 5 games, an acceptable explanation of why you surrendered would be in order.

As a side note, you have a history of spammy threads/posts (I'm not saying that has any bearing on classicist membership).

Yes, sinny is right, we need some information about that surrender before being able to make a decision here.

As far as spamming the forums goes, yes I remember seeing a bit of that from you too. Not, as sinny says, of direct relevance to Classicist admission UNLESS it continues/escalates to the point where a forum ban is issued. If that were to happen it is indicative of an inclination not to abide by the site rules, and that IS of relevance to membership. We have withheld membership in the past in such circumstances ( :mrgreen: ) so worth being aware of that.

However, at the moment you're a long way from that (hope it stays that way) and we just need to deal with the surrender issue. If you can provide some information about that (when, why, how many games ago) then we can make progress with your application. Many thanks.

My surrender: The Division Bell.

It was an error. My first macht. I taked a France with only Spain and Portugal.

Ok, research done!

Thanks for the information about the surrender. I looked at game "The Division Bell" and saw that you took up a surrendered position in Spring 1904 (must have been during the retreat phase) on 20 April, subsequently entered no orders, and were auto-surrendered from the game in Spring 1905 on 27 April. This presumably accounts for 2 of the 3 NMRs in your stats prior to a subsequently excellent reliability record. Not quite sure what the "error" was in this surrender, unless you meant joining the game in the first place.

However...all 7 of your finished games started after 27 April, which means the surrender was literally your first dabble with the site. On the basis that you therefore have had more than 5 (7, in fact) games since your last surrender, I am happy to admit you to the Classicists as a Bronze member. So...welcome, and congratulations....but remember the advice about your forum posts! ;)
