You know, BOB, as in "for Bob's sake", "Thank Bob" and so on.

You know, there's this handy search feature pretty far to the top of the page, you can use it to look for keywords and things, also for acronyms, like BOB. And guess what I see as the fifth hit.

they don't really explain what it is or why it's used, just what it does. no use in knowing what something does if you don't know why you use it.

Surely the question would be - "why wouldn't you use it"?

I would not use it because,
A.It Fills the computer hard drive full of data.
B.It fills the webpage full of information,which may slow my PC down by a millisecond.
C.It is a plug in which is supposed to help you win and could be considered cheating in Hasbro Circles.
D.Its has had more bugs then a lizard on a summers day.

A) No it doesn't

- The sum total of data stored on my machine is...
({jumptomap:false, textMapType:"Off", fadeMap:1, MapLeft:0, MapTop:0, '24hourClockFormat':"am/pm", mapInspect:true, confirmEnds:true, confirmAutoAttack:true, confirmDeploy:false, statsMode:"Extended", floatActions:"On", hideMenu:"Off", MinimumFormWidth:"600", 'MinimumFormWidth:Scotland':650})

B) Better a millisecond of PC power - than 10 seconds of brainpower...

C) Meh

D) No it doesn't - the latest version has 2 minor display issues... which are already fixed in the latest Beta version.

I realise you spent a lot of time on this Yeti so I won't be over critical.I downloaded it not knowing what it really was months ago.It wouldnt let me use the attack button and filled the screen with what my brain already knew.So I uninstalled it.
You asked why not to use it and I answered.
Plugs ins are considered cheats in Hasbro Circles.I suspect no true risker would use it on those grounds alone.
