If Tourney Owl is so that you can play a tournament game separately from your opponent, then pencils from Tourney Owl games shouldn't be announced in chat.

So that's what Tourney Owl is... didn't know exactly how it worked.

I didn't even know slightly how she worked! Played her today - ended quite a few rounds early without trying but luckily still did pretty good.
So this is who you play if you haven't bumped into your opponent x days after your game was announced?

Looks like it.

Also, well done to Joseph on beating Chris, but should the system not knit the two games together like an ordinary 15 rounder, rather than effectively applying flat scoring, and allowing both players to get points for the conundrum? Had this match happened head-to-head, Chris would have won 95-73.

Maybe we'll just have to agree to accept the head-to-head score, rather than the overall result. Not perfect, but much better than games going unplayed and tournaments dragging on until people lose interest.

I'd understood scores were emboldened if they were the correct max, but not if they were an incorrect declaration or below the max. In my Duel game today (it might be Hyper in general, I don't tend to play it very often) several incorrect declarations were bold but some correct maxes weren't. Screen dump available that for obvious reasons I'm not going to upload now, and the obvious reason isn't that I played like a fool. I'll do it tomorrow for clarity :)
Some of the incorrect maxes were when the numbers weren't possiblr (R5, 6, 9, 11)

This does involve me coughing to this completely shit game, so bear with me :oops:

You'll notice that r4 is a correct max, but not bold, but that r5/6/9/11 (as Thomas points out) are when they shouldn't be, since they're incorrect declarations. Anyhoo, HTH :)
That's basically the correct behaviour. R4 you were 6 away from the "max", even though the "max" is not really the max because... yeah. And for 5/6/9/11, you got the maximum available score, so that's bold.

I still think it could display slightly different behaviour in some situations. I think in maxes only rounds, it should let you attempt your solution if you're at least as close as the Apterous max (in normal numbers as well). At a slight tangent, as it stands in normal numbers, it arguably gives you some sort of undeserved advantage as you know if your declaration is possible when you're trying to blag.

Also maybe it could count any game as a max game if you at least equal Apterous's max in every round. As it stands, the "perfect" games on the hyper-style numbers formats aren't a very good list.

I don't think that's true. You ought to act as if it's possible anyway, since if it's impossible you'll be scoring 0 either way.

Agree with the rest, it's just that changing the way that works would be really quite hard.

This is more of a feature request than a bug report, and it would be a real hassle to do it that way, not to mention some potentially weird consequences. At least with Duel-style scoring everyone knows what to expect.

Chris and Joseph played the same game. James Levison and I played different games, which I'm guessing wasn't supposed to happen.

This feature wasn't supposed to have rolled out yet, and it's not been properly tested. I suspect that if one of you starts the game, and then the other one also starts the game before the other guy has finished, you'll end up with a mess. Not sure if that's what happened here.

Thanks. I was a bit confused, and ignored the Tourney Owl game the first couple of times I logged in and saw it (would that further complicate things?). James finished about 3 hours before I started I think.

OK, but since the Apterous max is sometimes not the max (occasionally even in normal numbers), I think it would be good to let you have a go when you declare better than the max on maxes-only scoring.

My game against the Tourney Owl got two records for me: (joint) most maxes in a game and highest score in a game. However, the former is reported as such, but my highest 15-round score is still listed as 135.

The two helpful messages (1 message, 1 nice bright purple notification like the GOTW reminder) reminding me to resubscribe have now changed to only one helpful message since I resubscribed. The nice bright purple one's gone but the more muted line is still there. Unless you wanted me to come on here and confirm I am still enjoying the site (I am), but that's frankly just like-whoring :P

Ah, right, thanks. I've just heard that the max of Jamie's game was 118, which makes me feel slightly guilty, but it was NEARLY A MAX GAME aargh head explode.

Surely COMPLEATS isn't a valid conundrum though as its a plural so there wouldn't be or at least shouldn't be any confusion of what the right answer would be.

Copy & paste function in chat seems to have stopped working. I don't know if this has been done on purpose (possibly for an anti-cheat mechanism for chat points?) but it used to be quite useful for putting up links n' stuff, and confusing Ryan, not necessarily at the same time. If it wasn't done on purpose thought you'd like to know :)

I think general thinking is that this is a rule for the setter rather than the solver (although Damian may disagree with a shambolic outcome), and I think this is the general rule on Apterous so it would go compleatly against the grain.

Moot point anyway - COMPLEATS is the conjugated verb form, not a plural.

I just get a blank screen now since Lockdown Jnr was added. I can see a line in this console dump about Lockdown Jnr not existing, that might explain the blankness. Whatever I do is recorded in the chat logs, so the interface buttons are working, just I don't get anything on my screen. See screenshot and console dump below.

On Apterous, when there's a teaser and I get it then after me, someone else gets it, it doesn't say that that person got it except when it says " 'a number' people got it. 'A player' was the first at 'some seconds'. The answer was 'a word'. " but even then, it only ever tells you how many people got it - not who (apart from the person who got it first).
I know this is not a brilliant explanation so just tell me if you have no idea what I mean - I'll try to explain it in more detail.

This is probably more of a feature request, but I'd agree actually. When I get a teaser I'd like to know who has got it after me.

Yeah... Not sure if it's a bug or if it's meant to be like this.

Sometimes it does tell you who also got it but I think they have to get it within the first 30 seconds or something.

My theory: if you get it at almost the same time as someone else and they're having lag, they might have gotten it before you did (and a message will therefore display), but it will appear under yours because of the lag.

I think it's about time the rules for unlimited were changed, or at least remove the "aegilops" rules from the rules page on unlimited. Yet again for a duel I've clicked on rules, realise I have to find a 9 letter word then fail to find it. Then the answer tells me it was just a 7 and I've lost ten easy points. I then notice it says "aegilops" for the rules. Frustrating.

It's cute that one of apterous' longest users does not know the rules to all the variants off pat. Saying that, I've been on it long enough but still confuse all the variants together in one big messy lump.

I love the weird variants, and I made exactly the same mistake.

I'm not really sure what this is about but, since a few people have now reported a similar thing, I assume it must be more than user error. For me, when I look on the rules tab for Unlimited, I see the rules for Unlimited. If anyone recreates this problem or anything else where it shows you the wrong rules, please send me your console contents (instructions) right away and I'll see if I can get to the bottom of it.

When I was playing the duel today my connection was lost a couple of times. However, when I reconnected, it said that I had blanked the rounds even though I had not seen the full selection, instead of just resetting to the start of the roud like normal. This may be a duel only thing, I don't know, but I feel a bit hard done by (especially as it will determine my seeding in the Tiny Tots Tourney and lost me a useful 13 points).

This happened to me too today but I was already doing shit on the duel so it didn't bother me too much.

That's by design, sorry. It sucks but the alternative is letting people quit out and retry the same rounds, which ruins the Duel.

Also along the similar lines. On a conundrum in a standard 15, if you don't solve it you can logout and then log back in and the conundrum will be reset so you get a different one. So if you are on 14/14 maxes against Prune you can just keep refreshing until you get a conundrum you want. I'm pretty sure this is the case anyway and will try it out now.

Edit: So yeah on a conundrum you can either refresh to get a conundrum you want and even once you've typed in an invalid guess you can still refresh it. How come this round doesn't get blanked like in duels?
