New blog for Chezmoi and Gladistors news, and more!

Welcome to the new blog with a purpose of supporting Chezmoi and Gladiators players from an external site. Please bookmark this home page of the blog so you can get news even if the regular site is down.

Categories of articles will include the following, with more added as deemed useful: News, Help, Reference, and Around the World.

So the first news of importance: due to staffing shortages at our hosting company, we now deem it essential that you make sure you update your e-mail address on both Chezmoi and at Gladiators. Do this by using the “settings” button and edit your e-mail address. Make sure there are no typos! And press Save Settings when you’ve gotten it right.

This is a ‘just in case’ action while staffing at our hosting company is impacted by the pandemic.

It will be possible to post comments, but they must be moderated for content because web robots show up and post spam and virus links. So don’t expect a reply soon, we’ll visit every few days during quiet times to check, and during busy times (like when we changed to a new hosting company for the site), we’ll be here often to post updates and answer questions in comments.

  1. Ben,
    I am having a problem setting up a game for the new player Bandit49. I have tried two times to set up a game and both times other people came in even though I wrote that the game was for new player Bandit49,,,The name today was England and yesterday Readers Ready,= He is in England and I do not know how to remedy this except if I make a game with a password, Thanks for any help,

    1. I need to write some new “primers” about setting up games, so the capabilities are better understood.
      The BEST way, in my opinion, to create a game FOR somebody is to set up a game that only THEY can join in the first place. You can do that either with a password (2nd best), or the best method, which follows.

      On the CREATE GAME SETUP screen, in the WHO CAN JOIN section, select the radio button “THIS PLAYER ONLY” and then click the down area in the text field just to the right. That pops open a list of all players. Just scroll down until you see your friend’s nickname and select it.

      When you press CONTINUE to FINAL STEP, read the information about the game you are about to create. You should see this line in that dialog:

      Who can join: Bandit49

      If you don’t, then you probably forgot to press the radio button “THIS PLAYER ONLY” so use your browser back arrow and fix that.

      On the confirm dialog, if the game name, who can join, and Series Length fields all show the settings you want, press CREATE THIS GAME.

      Then wait for them to join, or send them an e-mail that they can now join. They will be the ONLY player who will even see this is a game to join. On their JOIN screen, it is in a special section called, “GAMES CREATED JUST FOR *YOU* (nobody else can join)

      I hope this helps! If you have issues, let me know!
