    We realise that in many games players will copy the answers of other players - Hey! that's the way it goes. When there are a multiple prizes, all valid and correct entries will be collected and winners will be drawn at random, 'out of a hat' - this is the fairest way.

    This was game was made for players to enjoy, and to see if they could work out the puzzle. For those of them that just wanted to copy and paste answers then unfortunately that is a shame but it will happen.

    I've made the first post at the mothers day game,everybody copied it,and my post has also been deleted,I want to know why? This is very very very unfair. I've spend 30min for nothing.

    All posts are deleted as soon as possible, so that it gives others to actually take part in the game and not just copy and paste.

    If you check it does say about copying in the rules and it does not matter if you were first or last to post all winners will be put together and names drawn at random.

    If one person posts and has every answer correct then it should not be assumed that the subsequent posts are simply copies.

    As for the Forum games, why not create a 'Private' section in the forum similar to the Chat Section. This would allow everyone to participate in the game by posting their answers in a new thread without it being seen by other players.

    This has been suggested however this does not work with certain games. We are considering making the section Moderated, this means all posts have to be approved before they are seen by others. This could mean that once the game has come to the end time, all posts will then be approved and others would then see, what other players have place. We are waiting to hear if this would be a workable feature.

    Tad bit confused about this mother's day game. Do I need to write the seafight bible page I find the image on or do I need to be specific as to what that specific item is? Because it seems to be difficult to specify what gem it may be in one of the images.

    You need to name the items that the part of the picture has been taken. For Example : Booty Bag

    The latest forum game "All Mixed Up" is now closed, winners chosen and prizes issued.

    What do you think of this type of game? Do you feel random winners are fair? Did you like seeing the results being drawn?

    Any ideas on the next game?

    When I have seen about that " random " rule, I thought the ones who gave the first right answers done it( copy paste... ) , because first I wasnt able to see.

    But after you made it public and I seen it, I dont find it fair at all , look at #1 #2 and #3's times , and style of typing it , does it look like they copy and paste it ?

    I didnt like and didnt find it fair at all.

    You should of found much better way for fix it ( when its nothing to fix , its very certain who won it , #1 #2 #3 )

    Have a nice day...

    Hey, Seren. Really enjoyed the game.

    I don't think submissions should be posted/seen. This allows for other players to copy and submit the same answers. Submissions should be emailed to a separate address.

    I think the random winner drawing method from the correct submissions should be changed. All correct submissions should receive a reward.

    At the end of the contest, the correct answers should be posted under a thread in the forum. A list of the winners forum names should be posted, as well, without server id and boat names, etc., being posted.

    The frequency of the forum games should increased, and coincide with the national holidays of sea Fight's participating countries. (Not to exceed 1 contest per month; "round robined" over time, so each country gets to have a game). Gauge the game difficulty so that people from all countries can still participate, without having to have background knowledge of that country's history, mores, or topography.

    Next forum game should occur on St. Patricks Day. Make it 1 week - 10 days long. Create an Irish themed Event, and tie it to a forum game. The answers to the game would be found within the "specifics" of the Event.

    Okay. Who won, and what did they win, and how many times have they won before? Like is it in the Forum Event announcements or is it in some risky link ? Why not let all know?

    Go to the Thread where the forum game took place. You can see the results on the 4th page.

    All can see, the reward this is on the opening page of the the forum game, the winners list is on the last closing post. As to how many times have they won before, you would have to review all forum games to find this out. This would not matter as each game is won on its own merit and not whether a player had won a forum game before.

    Been playing 3 years and no very little about games held in that time,
    So perhaps they are not advertised or promoted enough,
    Id play them,or at least try,love a challenge.
