Sofia will make an excellent moderator!

On the issue of sandbaggers, what does that really mean on OGS? Sofia’s rank goes up and down a lot because she plays so much. New profiles often underestimate the rank of a player until they get enough games. Other than that kind of thing, I have a hard time imagining what sandbagging would look like here…?

Sandbagging means deliberately deflating your rank, for instance by resigning many “won” games, resigning at move 10, losing by time on purpose…

Initially I had decided not to reply, but what one person wrote and the discussion here made me realise that being silent is wrong.
I thank you for welcoming me, but not for saying that girls who play go are cool (and I’m not a girl, I’m over 20, btw). I initially thought there was nothing wrong with that, but what you wrote to me privately after that changed my mind.

Please don’t have a different consideration for male and female players. It’s not what we want and it drives many of us away from the community.
Women and men are cool in the same way. And both can have fun playing go and leaving aside what their gender is.
I hope that I’ll be able to prove that I am cool regardless of my gender :wink:

Yes, but significantly less so.

I don’t envy anyone being a moderator. It takes time, and you sometimes get criticized. So thank you Sofiam and other moderators for doing that job!

Like it’s much more fun to teach when you are not a teacher (as a job)
