You joined a bot game. See near the top, under the title of the game and the size of the pot.

When you were creating the game, you must have accidentally selected "Play a Game Against Bots."

I am shocked and saddened by the allegation that my good friend Zultar Bot is not a real person.

It looks like a different user started a bot game, then pretty much left the site and was eventually kicked from the game. You joined in on that empty spot before the bots were able to auto draw. If you email the mods detailing the situation, they could probably cancel it for you.

I know it says to email the mods, but can complaining on the forums work as an acceptable alternative?

Unfortunately the mods are too busy dealing with emails to read the forums for the most part.

Oh I've read this, but if I encourage members who know better by letting them get away with cutting in line by posting on the forum then everyone else will start too, and then the volume of forum posts with important requests will be beyond what we can keep up with. So I'm afraid an email will be required.

The guy I replaced was too far gone, so I started my own robot game.
