having pool sites as ads is ok.

i've played a few times on web version lately,and i've seen adverts like
ZOMG MEET THESE HOT GIRLS NOW

PARIS HILTON HAS A WEBCAM ON 24/7

GET USA GREEN CARD JUST BY TELLING YOUR EMAIL


etc
if they have such ads on their site,why aren't we allowed to swear then?
they say we can't swear because there are kids on the site
so its probably ok when kids see ads with hot girls 24/7,isn't it?

I subscribe Baz Attack and Scotty's opinions. I have made numerous suggestions in the connect 4 section, but do you even think they listened to me? They don't even take me serious. And who else then experienced players (like me, but also others) can make improvements to the games they know best? Sure OPERATOR and mods know much about FOD procedures and policies, but what do they know about the games themselves? About connect 4, not much, I can tell.

About the programmer thing. I have said it before and continue saying it: they should have never allowed it in the first place. I like the idea of Baz about two seperate top lists. Then I might even consider subscription. Now it is off no use due to all the cheaters.

thx Ocean

massi i agree maybe it isnt so bad having pool sites as add, and all the hot girls ads ect are worse i guess.

but my point being is that u get a demerit or ban for advertising other sites on fod, yet they do it apparently just for money

sorry double post.

T. you have good points, an experienced subbed player who has given suggestions that should definately be taken in account.

and for what you say. >Sure OPERATOR and mods know much about FOD procedures and policies, but what do they know about the games themselves? About connect 4, not much, I can tell.

im not speaking for all mods here but you sure have a great point.

I agree with everyone of what they have said. For the advertisement, if I ever get on a non subbed name and I get a certain pop-up it usually makes my screen go all black or it disconnects me which these two result in the same thing as losing in a game. Some of the adverts are very bad with the Paris Hilton thing and other stuff like HyperCam Girls and stuff actually seeing the body parts but to a certain degree.

3.8 Referring to body parts or sexuality.

This is a rule that FlyOrDie has, if anyone refers to it by talking about it they get banned which I think should happen if nasty people talk about that. But the pictures are worse than words, because a picture is worth a 1000 words which means it gives children a lot of bad ideals which shouldn't come to a child's mind. I think it's wrong that FlyOrDie is making money off this and not really caring about the players. A lot of this has been talked about in the past, but nothing got done until monthes later or maybe the advert people weren't paying FlyOrDie anymore so they took them off. Waiting for newer and better (worse) adverts to come to their website. As I heard, this is a friends family website and we should all be a family like what Chris said and not fight with each other because face it, were all human.

This topic has been going on for a long time with good ideals from the past and some of them that are new but obv. FlyOrDie moderators are listening to our comments and haven't deleted it but where is the Operator? Moderators can't do anything (in what were talking about) only the OP's can fix our problems and listen to our comments and try to make FlyOrDie good for everyone since we ALL are keeping this site a live. But the Question you have to ask yourself, is for how long until everyone's sub ends, I don't think they will resub but I guess you can count on the programmers because they have it their way like Burger King, so now FlyOrDie depends on all of the programmers. Question to the programmers, is how low (long) can you go man (boys & girls) until you stop getting bored because you finally reliaze that programming is not the way to go and than your going to start getting bad at the other programmers because you had to learn the hard way but they haven't yet...

Just the circle (box) of life

very good post mike. great analysing about the paris hilton popup ect ect. and fod pride its self on being family friendly. i mean some ppl here are idiots, there everywhere, but what family frienly site has these kind of popups

well my subscription has just ran out a week or so ago, and i may not re-subscribe. but the thing why we are all here and love the site(with all its faults)is the games. fod has a good base in the billiard games, chess of course with 3000 players on now, used to be around 2000

this shows something about programmers and looking in chess, connect 4 or whatever atleast half of the top players use a program.

OP please tell me why fod chose the use of programs, not causing an aargument i would just please like to hear an awnser about this subject

Here's a few quotes from OP about the subject Baz

"Program play is a natural ingredient of any online board game. You cannot get rid of it. You can claim that there is no program play on a site, but you are wrong.."

"what is your problem with programs, why should it be forbidden. You do not need to play with them, you can simply ignore them, and play real players.
If someone wants to play against a program, why do you think we should not allow this? Why should we also not allow two programs to play against each other?"

"We have made this site honest by doing our best to sign the player whom we suspect to use programs, thus giving you the possibility to decide if you wish to play against a program or not."

"but if we cannot detect all programs, how can you expect to ban them all?"

"I repeat once again that unfortunately we cannot satisfy the claims of every one of our dearest players. We have done our best to find a solution to the program players. Now some of you might not agree that this is the best. You might think that you have a better solution. Well, most players would not agree with you either..."

"there is no perfect solution, I have only one advice, if you don't like programs, don't play them (we have done everything we could do in order to help you avoid them if you wish so)."

thx Chris

i agree with some of the points there made by OP. but this is a forum and theres nothing wrong with us discussing this. i have said previous that it was good showing who the program players are. i stand by my opinion but with those quotes he makes a fair point i guess.

well about the program thing, I don't like the programmers, but I know that the detecting system can't catch them all, but atleast if it does, once they get caught can their be a program top list and a fair player top list. I know it's not going to be 100% tho but atleast it will be close to perfect because you can't catch them all in that's a fact in life.

Four pages and four days into this topic and still we are yet to see a reply from the Op, i know he checks these forums regularily because he post's in the Magyar section quite often...a Mod could post but they can't really answer our question's can they?

Guess we should just be used to this by now eh

Mike you can make a good post when you want to (never thought id say that )

Well thanks for keeping me reading this for ages..

there arent really any good suggestions and good conversations in there

You're on about the Requests/Suggestions part when you say this, but I disagree with what you've said here, there's been numerous requests by loads of people, including the usual forum regulars like myself, and nothing has been done.

Mike for a change you have created a decent topic, I may have flamed you earlier in this very topic, but as much I don't agree with your initial point in your topic, it highlights a need for change and that's something we're just not getting, just about everyone who's posted in this topic so far has been subscribed for years, what have we really got back in return?

And don't say spots on our info page, backgammon (although I find that to be good), or darts...
