What are you trying to achieve with all these nefarious conspirocies?

1. What command do I have to type to force my opponents concession?

2. How is the current version of CR calculated?

3. Why is there no ping when you get a game in box although there is a ping when you get a game in ranked?

4. Are you able to OT-Score with a ma8 player with no SS and do you attempt it regularly?

5. What change on the site do you look forward to the most?

6. Without checking, do you know what Greased Shoes do?

7. Do you know how FAME is calculated?

8. How do you feel about a LRB Fumbbl personally?

9. How do you feel about people who ask you random questions not pertaining to the site? Does that bother you generally speaking? Or does it bother you more when people suddenly come to you and ask you questions pertaining to the site? Would you generally rather avoid contact with other people on the site or are you happy to help?

10. Why do you think we need a competitive play rule? Is there room for its execution outside covering fringe cases of rule exploitation and arranged games? And if yes, how can that be justified?

11. And what if a coach disagrees with you about what a good strategy is?

12. And what if he is far more experienced than you in the game?

13. What if the admin working a non-competiveness case rarely ever plays or holds a grudge against the current ruleset? Doesn't that strongly affect what he thinks the game should be played like?

14, What if the coach is simply inexperienced?

15. Trying to stay alive is a quite common approach on the game, do I have to expect to get in trouble if I stay down and don't take a final chance at the ball at about 1.2% late into the second half? And is that a fringe case?

16. What is wrong with people trying to operate within a strict set of rules trying to push all of them to their limits? Isn't that the best way to see what is wrong and needs to be changed and should be changed instead of living in a bubble?

17. How can you be competitive if you at the same time are supposed to sorta not try so hard?

18. Do you understand that in a game of probability you do better when you improve your probability to win by whatever means, right?

19. Concessions are sort of restricted, I am supposed to wait for a moment when the game is already decided. However, when the game is decided it tends to be also over soon and usually not worthwhile the concession. If I conceed to avoid injuries (I'm not sure I'm even allowed to) I have to wait till somebody is already heavily injured, hence it will be too late to avoid the injury from happening.
So in all these scenarios there isn't really a point for a concession anymore. Nothing can really be gained from it other than a bit of time. Saving time however is as far as I understand not a valid reason for a concession.

Wouldn't it therefore make more sense to just disable the concession function in the client?

20. If I am at a point in the game where a concession is legal but I decide to just click turn instead and don't hand a free MVP and extra money out to my opponent, would it still make sense to from a site rules point of view to object to my behavior doing nothing?

21, The time limit. I'm not supposed to use it when there is an emergency or some connection issue occured. I'm aware of that. What I don't understand is whether or not it is ok to time somebody out lets say on a toilet break or a smoke break or a food break or any other marginal activity I did not agree on with him. Am I explicitly forbidden to time my opponent out in all those cases where there is a period of inactivity or should I simply assume the inactivity is happening for a valid reason while in fact it may be an invalid one that allows me to click turn when I know about it?

22. Same as with concessions. If you have to run it by an admin first, why not make the access restricted to admins only for this kinda stuff and just remove the features coaches are not supposed to use? Or why not at least equip those features with a warning of sorts?

Wow! Some of these are absolutely the best questions I've ever heard on this site!
but on another note you're being entirely too serious so I must withdraw any more comments from this link

Serious question then:

When looking over pictures to approve, how often are they not approved, and what is the usual suspect? (what kind of image is often submitted only to be rejected most often)

1. In-game situation: its a blizzard, turn 16, major tournament game. A team are 1-0 down. Goblin pogoer has the ball, with sprint + sure feet but Greased Shoes. He tries to GFI into the endzone for the equaliser - its the third GFI and he hasn't needed a sure feet reroll. The team has no TRRs left. What are the odds of him scoring the touchdown, to send the game into overtime?

2. Why does cdassak keep breaking the site?

3. if an uber-picked Ranked team was drawn against a min-maxed clawpomb Box team in the FC, who would moan most on the forum?

3a. vaguely related... what is the longest/most pointless forum discussion you've seen in your time as admin?
