Right.
Is discussion still in progress?
Who is in charge to take the final decision and act?

I do hope this topic is still alive, as long as we still haven't seen a final decision from site admins.....ehm....who...?!? :roll: are there still site admins here around..?!? Good point....
Are editors and confirmers undertanking the investigations that have been done for the PAC case....?!? We actually don't know...we have no feedbacks from anyone in anything (there are other posts with questions and propoals literally ignored.... :?

We had a recent take over of the site...for what...?! Not to let the hosting expire...?! It would have been a dignified death, instead of this
slow and sad agony.... :evil:

Kbz3pa mailed me today :

"Hello.
I’m kbz3pa, and i would talk about the cheat problem in MARP.
First, I apologize for the problem. It’s not easy to explain it here. I can’t access the MARP board. I need someone to share this mail with the others.
I never cheated, but someone very close to me did it with my user thinking that it will not be important.
I’ll explain this more detalied if neccesary.
Thanks in advance.
Kbz3pa.

Sorry (not sorry), not buying it.
I shouldn't even explain why... but I think there's the need to.
First of all, the timing. We've been discussing this since December, records have been changed the days after TK spoke and that was the first reaction we saw. This whole excuse explained in the mail could be just another lame try to save the situation, for what we know, all lies, who can trust him now... who would be crazy to give him trust.
He could have sent emails before or write something in the replays... Instead what we read in one replay was merely a challenging/sarcastic tone to TK.
Then, the "even if" part. Even if, eeeeeven if that's the truth, that mysterious somebody... let me give you ideas, dear, a naive little brother? a friend? kernzy's cousin? whoever, was the person who did cheating replays in your place, honestly that wouldn't change things, would it? There is admission of cheating, and pretending that the story is true, still someone has to take responsibility and it has to be the owner of the account. If it's not his fault for creating the actual replays, it's his fault to let this person access his profile and upload those. May this be a lesson.

???????

what....????

so somebody had access to your computer, who just happens to play a lot of the same games as you, used an outside means of save stating after every shot in Neo Turf Masters or every stage in Block Out and whatever Touchmaster games, and then uploaded these recordings under your MARP account for... what reason? To sabotage your name / account? And you didn't notice any of this until you got called out for having uploaded suspicious replays?

Nope, I'm not buying it. It might be too late to come clean but denying that this wasn't a premeditated attempt to cheat the system is actually going to do more damage than admitting you cheated.

Second mail today from kbz3pa :
"Simply, someone very close to me cheated inputs. He used my username and password to send them. It has been out of control. The fault is mine, of course. I deleted the cheat entries when I found out. Since 2000 I have been a "marper". I like it. This has happened. I apologize. I can't say more. I will accept what they decide. Thank you."

My point of view is the same than Giro & BBH.
This mysterious "other person who cheated" doesn't excuse anything

That's a ridiculous nonsense.....as BBH stated, such an excuse is worse than admitting to have cheated....
Go ahead, and get rid of his scores, as it has been done with PAC....

Good afternoon.
Finally, I have access to the board.
I'll be very brief. That is the explain. You can believe or not, of course. I'm 56 and, as you can understand, if i'm banned from here... it's not my biggest fear. OK. It's your decission. Do the right thing. I apologize again for no protect my access to MARP. I don't think I'm obligated to say who did it. It's the true. See you soon or never, you'll decide.
And if you want, I will go so you don't have to argue anymore.
Best regards.
Kbz3pa
