Ok since Party is generally really slow in doing anything productive to the ecology I feel like a thread like this is needed to draw the public attention towards a disastrous problem.
Some players are in possession of a seating script that sits them immediately next to a fish that sits down. We are speaking of nanoseconds in which this happens. As soon as a fish sits down, the script places that player in position to him, even before the fish actually bought in.
A player that abuses this in a devastating way is http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/members/29647/
He used to coach here and apparently instantly deleted his thread once someone addressed the scripting issue.
He is still offering coaching at http://www.coachingtokens.com/poker_coaches/borntarun/
keep in mind that his results there are probably influcened by a seating advantage as well and thus create an image of a better player than he actually is.
His former nick on party
and this is his current one which he stole from a former regular (you can change SNs on party and use "old" ones that were used earlier by players)
A discussion in the party msnl thread can be found from here on http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/56...3/index23.html
As you can see, recreational players are aware of what is happening here. The effects on the games are just disatrous. Once this becomes used by everyone the games on Party will be unplayable, which is why it has to be stopped as long as there is just a minortity using it.
You can scroll through the party thread to see revlis87's explanations which are more or less completely redundant as not to be taken seriously. He has not defended himself regarding this issue from this point on and abuses the system every day at the tables at PartyPoker.
I hope that with this thread and the help of twoplustwo there will be a solution to these scummy tactics and I hope Party eventually realizes why this is such an important issue.
