When Thucydides left the site for a bit, he made an announcement on the forum and his mod powers were revoked. Someone suggested the idea of muting him to see what happened when he came back and his mod powers were restored. (You can't mute mods.) So, I did. I have now looked at his profile and discovered that he is now a mod again. However, I cannot unmute him.
I doubt many people will remember me, but I used to be quite a keen player on the site. I left almost a year ago now, but am back and determined to organize one final (and hopefully epic) game. Details inside.
Yes its a bit a tricky. There is no precise way of setting the iPad time. You just have to try to get it as close to the game clock as possible. You can see the real time remaining momentarily when you refresh to the board.
So if your clock is off, then the times it displays will be off. Ideally you want to have your computer synched up with a time server on the internet. But if that isn't possible with an iPad then you just have to do the best you can.
You can install an called Emerald Time which will tell you precisely how out of sync your iPad/iPhone is with the Network Time Protocol servers on the net. Currently my iPad is almost spot on (0.03 of a second off).
We seen the stats before about the average number of messages per game. That is one way of looking at it. But some people post lots of short messages, while others write essays. How much do you really write?
