Wow. I have to say I'm glad I missed this one.
These is one thing I'd like to make comment on though:
If I get some time, I'll poke around and put together a list of suspicious replays, but it's pretty time intensive, and I don't have much time. Also, I'm concerned about posted my replay analyzer because then it would reveal an easy way to code around it.
We are an open community. I don't believe that keeping secrets are going to do anything other than damage our mutual trust and respect.
Neverball, the Nevertable and the Neverforum all have their source available under an open licence. In my opinion, To introduce closed components would only serve to undermine these projects' integrity.
a compiled library where the code is kept behind the scenes by trustworthy people only.
There is no possible sustainable way that that could be implemented. In a community, individuals are transient. We don't have the structure nor continuity (which I believe is a good thing) to manage the handing on of the responsibility of maintaining/deploying such a library.
Additionally, handing out an authority like this could drastically change the dynamics of our community. At present, we have no real hierarchy. Whilst we have a few shining stars (rlk, parasti, mym, Shino, Elviz, etc.), we're all more or less on equal footing, and are free to comment on anybody else's work. I don't think there is a single member of our community who could say that their work hasn't at some point benefited from the open input of others.
This is where the trust that everybody seems to have in Elviz stems from. It's not blind. It's not unfounded. It's been earned. He has a history of being open and honest.
I am stunned by the patience displayed within this thread, and I hope that we'll pursue some of the positive outcomes from this (validation/anti-cheat enhancements for Neverball/the Nevertable) in a manner that is congruent with the assorted projects' licences and philosophies.
