Re: A new record!

I've often noticed and pondered that statistic. Given that I only ever see one or two users online (including myself), these figures must be artificially high. They seem rather low for a serious DDoS attack so my best guess would be multiple spambots trying to bypass the (cunningly mahjong-themed) r...

Re: Tenhou Riichi twitch streamer

I guess it just goes with the majority or RNG to split a tie? Hasn't been an issue so far!

The stream's still offline but I found a clip of one player getting a Yakuman there. 8)

Re: Mahjong at the movies?

Strip mahjong with a man and three woman in underwear in The Kung Fu Stars. (1978)

The guy puts down a 7p and all three girls try to take it but he declares a win on it.

The girls protest as they were all waiting for the same tile too (one with a very nice hand).

Re: No Yaku? No worries! :o

Time to make use of those newly restored spoiler tags! She started with the 89, Dora pair, one wind, no drags. Dropped the wind. Drew the 7 on her second turn. Looks like she was keeping one safer tile to reach on but her hand was making no progress. She was leading late in the match but it seems sh...

Re: RM.com site - problems reports

Nice, the image spacing is restored. Merci beaucoup. :)

I've had lots of images not loading but it's always fixed by refreshing. Sometimes takes two or three refreshes though.

Custom Rule of the Day: Three Years on the Stone

hisa3.jpg Hisa and I are reviving this occasional series from many years ago! The Mahjong Soul online game recently launched a "Local Yaku" event with some exotic non-standard Yaku and Yakuman ( see list ). Most were familiar to me but it took a little while to track down this one. Ishinoue Nimo Sa...

Re: RM.com site - problems reports

I'll check how embedded images works, it seems a bit weird. Yeah! Before it added one line below an embedded image and none above. (I could never remember which way round it was so had to preview.) To get one blank row above and one below an inline pic I had to do this: text manual blank row pic te...

Re: RM.com site - problems reports

Thanks for restoring the contact icons. Is there a config setting for default spacing around uploaded images embedded in posts? I was always careful to have one blank line above and below a picture but these seem to have been lost on my old posts. I'm still seeing the transparent Chun favicon in Chr...

Re: Tenhou Riichi twitch streamer

That Riichi category seems to be defunct now, but with the recent popularity of Majsoul - and now the official English version Mahjong Soul - you'll often find people streaming in these new categories (as well as the vanilla "Mahjong" category). https://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Majsoul https://w...
