morning count , if you've been checking the conversations you'll notice i have found a way of cheating . i don't think i'm the only one . if you drop me a line on my email number (you have ??) i'll tell you how it's done . don't know enough about internet to know if it can be stopped or not .

would be a shame to spoil a great site
thanks
kev

You should be able to stop it i would have thought, some other sites don't allow you to do it. Have you emailed the Count, Kev?

I got curious about this so I did a bit of investigating. I have a theory, so feel free to shoot me an email.

Speculation is not a bad thing. I'm willing to bet that most gamers here are honest, and as more methods of cheating are found, the more they can be brought out in the open and dealt with.

Teabag, I didn't mean for the above statement to sound harsh. Imagine it coming from the mouth of a smiley face.

I did imagine it with a smiley face .. if you put your email address I will tell you how it is done .. I just don't want "everybody" to know if possible ..

Have sent you an email. You might want to delete that last message so not everybody has your email address?

what's being done about the accusations of cheating. i would like to know what the heck is going on . i used to enjoy this site and now, well it's anything but enjoyable. now i find my post has been deleted. it's seems only "factacular click" is allowed to single out members by name, then attacking their credibility, without any tangible proof. all i've read about is that several people are being accused of cheating (one being myself), and the accusers have been looking for away of cheating. i do not like being called a cheater and i don't like having my post censured while i'm try to defend myself from some pomous bozo. the thing is that only a coward would handle it in this matter. I was once told by a very learned person that " telling a lie about someone is like throwing a thousand feathers in the air on a windy day.you can never retrieve them all if your wrong"

Right everyone. Count Detective Super Inspector Factacular is on the case, and we will put this sorry business behind us once and for all. No-one is being accused of cheating until I find out that they're cheating and then we'll all point and jeer and say old people things like "you're only cheating yourself". This is a company of gentlemen and gentlewomen and TeaBag.

P.S. Harley I just read your post again and it really made me laugh. Please do keep winding up kevg, it's very amusing :)

Sorry count, (but glad i made you laugh) but this is not meant to be amusing, i take my reputation very seriously. i have nothing but admiration for you and what you have done with this site. i have found the people here are wonderful, and really enjoyed my time here, thinking it was time well spent. Now i feel violated and will probably lose interest in competing, now that my scores will be suspect. I don't understand why anyone would resort to charactor assassination to get rid of their competition. I would like to respectfuly disagree with you on one fact. Myself and another were singled out by name. This at the very least was quite embrassing. Believe me if i lived on the isle of mann i would pay my accuser a visit, then we would go to the pub. I have to tend to some personal things right now, but i will check in tomorrow. thank you count.

harley if i am mistaken then i will apologise publically and buy you the first pint , but you must admit it is unusual for a person to have so little "facts" to win brainoffs with a perfect score so often

yesterday i took the time to explain that i've been playing for some time now. i was introduced to factacular by a friend. i would play under his pseudonym when he lost interest and then moved. i then joined the community, so my "facts" that are listed under harley is not a true representation of my "fact" total. I'm sorry for the confusion.

Harley, you post wasn't deleted, it just wasn't showing up due to a BUG which I've now fixed. No denial of free speech has occurred! Well, not deliberately anyway.

Count, just wondering if there is some sort of way that you could change the old "tag" name over to the new computer so you could pick up your old score. Isn't there Count?

Well is it possible to change the email address setting for the old tag name to the new computer and then pick up your old score?

I'm sorry TeaBag, I'm just not getting it! :) Yes you can change your email address, and if you sign in on another computer with that email address and your usual password then yes you will pick up your normal player name and score... is that what you meant?

Yes .. that is what I meant. So Harley could have done that rather than create a new person?
