    Grylls got a reaction from dgormand in Soccer Manager Worlds New User Interface   
    I've been trying to get on with this now for 2 days but to no avail.
    I'd read a number of comments over the last few days but didn't want to check my 2 pence in before giving it a chance.
    I started playing this game almost 5 years ago (it will be 5 years in January) on a PC and now just play it via my iPhone on the desktop setting as it's intuitive and nice to use. This new one is ghastly, if this had been in place when I first played this, I wouldn't have lasted a day, let alone almost 5 years.
    I also hope that come January they retain the original desktop site as otherwise I won't be sticking around, it'll almost be like I've wasted hundreds of hours of my life on this.
    The simple answer is to vote with your wallets, it's the only thing that matters in a consumer driven service.

    Ok, so there is a thread saying we can now opt between the new and old interface but how?

    I suppose this could be a blessing in disguise? I've tried this new look but I really cannot get on with it, so come the 11th of January when the old skin is binned...again (it's evident they won't listen to requests to keep it) I will be leaving.
    I waste too much of my time on this game as it is, I'm not wasting more time on some rubbish buggy software that isn't as intuitive. I'm sure as hell not paying to be treated with contempt.
    Shame, It was nice while it lasted. Another example in life of someone fixing something that wasn't broken.

    1 more swift one after the break and then the work-shy hub cap thieves really can stick their '4 goals in 20 minutes' (last season) where the sun doesn't shine!

    Grylls got a reaction from junky mail in Is reporting illeagal transfers broken?   
    Re: Is reporting illeagal transfers broken?
    We are all being treated with contempt. In a nutshell, they do not give a flying hoot as long as the cheats are paying to use the game. The simple answer to this is to vote with your wallets and stop paying to use the service. I will happily pay to use a service until I realise that my money isn't respected in which case I would rather use that service in a fashion that costs the provider money for me to use - as a freeloader.
    There is blatant cheating going on in a game world I am in. I have reported the transfers in question twice to no avail, the person has even admitted to cheating via the messaging facility when I tackled them on it. What happened then? The PM vanishes from my inbox, removing that evidence and brushing it under the carpet.
    The person in question, Abdi Saputra, took over Manchester United on the 21st of September. On the same day another three people (also conveniently from Indonesia, one of which has the same surname) sign up as managers of Fulham, Sunderland and Aston Villa. The other 3 teams then proceed to sign the lesser players for vastly inflated sums - Ferdinand £11m, Cleverly £23m, Kagawa £32m. Then today another Abdi Saputra joins up with Peterborough and bids a whopping £61m for Van Persie!?!
    It's not a vastly competitive game world, my Liverpool team are unbeaten for almost 30 matches. I have a strong first team but as soon as any of my starting 11 get injured or suspended my next best player is only 82 rated. Many of the top players are at external clubs. Off the back of the dodgy dealings above the cheat has used the funds to buy Ronaldo. In a game world where top players are at external clubs, alarm bells should be ringing when people would rather sign Kagawa than a 95/96 rated player.
    What will become of this? Sweet FA (I do not mean Football Association). Even IF they reverse those deals, it's still freed up funds for them to buy Ronaldo (from an external club) which cannot be reported!?!?!
    Disgusted. I even PM'd a Dev a few days back and was ignored completely. I have PM'd them again and made sure I ticked read receipt and have it in my sent items. If it's ignored again I shall screen grab that and post it on here.
    As a Union rep I will not let this rest.
    The fact he had the audacity to acknowledge cheating in a PM and it vanishing is completely unacceptable.

    Re: Taking over team and selling everyone to unmanaged
    Here are my thoughts;
    1) It isn't a problem I have encountered but I am sure it is frustrating.
    2) Cheats are not dealt with (Madadi in WC10000 being a prime example). Granted his 'spoof family member accounts' get transfers reversed when dealing with each other but are free to deal with other people.
    3) Appointing moderators is a VERY dangerous path to take, SMFA will back their 'team'. As a previous forum ***** on many sites, mainly based around car modification or stock-market trading, I will say that ANYONE who puts themselves forward is a danger, if they are power-crazed, bitter, a narcissist etc.
    I can genuinely 110% say that in a decade of forum use, encountering hundreds of mods/admin etc, many in face to face scenarios, that there is only 1 single person who I would say has faultless integrity and could not be called into question over moderating. He happens to use these boards. He also happens to be a busy guy and doesn't get to deal with his team(s) as often as he would like due to work commitments. It wouldn't be fair to ask someone in that position to take on more responsibility as it would upset his work/lifestyle balance.
    Likewise, if someone spends a LOT of time on here, I would question why their life revolves around a game and I think their unhealthy interest makes them a prime candidate to bend the rules.
    I should point out that I am a Union Representative. I like fairness and equality for people, unfortunately doing the role does cost me a fortune each year (loss of earnings) and that is why, on the whole, it keeps the desire pure. If being a rep meant any of us could personally benefit it would cast serious questions on us. That in itself is why moderators are a bad idea.
    P.S. That isn't a nicely worded pitch. I have no desire to moderate forums. Been there, done it, got the t-shirt.
