I have read hyperbole and hearsay, as to the supposed deleterious nature of 'The Forfeit-Glitch. As a result, due to my confusion, may I request simultaneous elaboration and clarification as to the matter? Of particular interest:

- Are all forfeited debates marred with this blight?

- Does the glitch recede?

I believe, based upon experience of grievances (not merely mine, mind you), that this impediment warrants focused discussion. Of course, I possess self-interest in desiring to further burgeon my blossomed debate-record, too. Regardless, please, if you are sure of your convictions, clarify this issue.

Thank you =)

I think it's strange that nothing has been done about it yet. I guess one thing is that it could prevent forfeits and curtail noob sniping, but that's not necessarily a good thing -.-
All the time your soul is craving and longing for something else. And in vain does the dreamer rummage about in his old dreams, raking them over as though they were a heap of cinders, looking in these cinders for some spark, however tiny, to fan it into a flame so as to warm his chilled blood by it and revive in it all that he held so dear before, all that touched his heart, that made his blood course through his veins, that drew tears from his eyes, and that so splendidly deceived him!

- Does the glitch recede? No.

It appears so

- Does the glitch recede?

Some have had to deal with this issue for several weeks

Whilst the timing makes this less useful, I suppose corroboration is of value; so, thank you.

Yes, pretty much all dead debates have this issue.

- Does the glitch recede?
From what I've seen, no. Meow.

I believe, based upon experience of grievances (not merely mine, mind you), that this impediment warrants focused discussion. Of course, I possess self-interest in desiring to further burgeon my blossomed debate-record, too. Regardless, please, if you are sure of your convictions, clarify this issue.

"Are you guys stupid? This glitch is the best thing that has happened to the site since Juggle's last update. Noobsnipes were stupid anyhow, and it's actually good for me, since the majority of my losses are due to forfeits. If this glitch had come around earlier, my win record would be way better, and the elo scoreboard might actually somewhat reflect reality... Keep up the complete and utter lack of hard work, Juggle!"

By the ways looking at your first 3 pages of debates; I only found 2 "non-noobs." Sure isn't noobsniping to me..

Nothing will be done about any problems on this site for the foreseeable future. Juggle just doesn't care and it's out of airmax's power.

Juggle will fix it eventually; it is only a matter of time.
