12 Jun 15 UTC EVERYONE STOP FUCKING VOTING CANCEL AS A WAY TO GET AROUND HIDDEN DRAW VOTES FUCK

I PUT UP CANCEL, CONFUSED BECAUSE THERE DIDN'T SEEM TO BE A REASON TO CANCEL, THEN REALIZED WHAT WAS GOING ON

JUST BECAUSE THE WEBSITE LETS YOU CHEAT DON'T CHEAT

HOLY FUCK
12 Jun 15 UTC GG
12 Jun 15 UTC but yeah GG. Looks like France and Germany were gonna include me in the cut. I actually has STP s SEV-MOS ordered, I"m not that nice...
12 Jun 15 UTC No cheating accusations in this thread :-)
12 Jun 15 UTC i was bullshitting my cancel orders, to psych you boys. It's all about Diplomacy, and in gunboat it's IMPOSSIBLE
12 Jun 15 UTC I mean.
Um.
FUck.

Please no cancelerino without reasino
12 Jun 15 UTC WHAT? VALIS NOOOOOO :'( i have failed you
12 Jun 15 UTC James, the Cancel button may NOT be used Diplomatically. It's a hard, explicit rule of the site. It is above and beyond the board games rules, like fake bugs, etc.
12 Jun 15 UTC lol I assumed that James
12 Jun 15 UTC That solo would have been HUGE. damn good game
12 Jun 15 UTC Using the Pause or Cancel buttons as signals to other players is violating the press rules. For example, voting pause to signal the desire for a smaller draw is not allowed. If you need a pause in a gunboat game contact the moderators (see below for the contact details) and explain why.
12 Jun 15 UTC I thought that was only for pauses... are you sure?
12 Jun 15 UTC This site has rules that superseed "anything goes" of traditional 60s Diplomacy. Please observe them.
12 Jun 15 UTC I'm 1000% sure but feel free to ask the mods.
12 Jun 15 UTC I'll look into it, I didn't quite realize the 'cancel' part. still gg and good night
12 Jun 15 UTC also it was EXPLICITILY said when HDV was announced...


and AGAIN in a follow up thread from the mods not to do that.
12 Jun 15 UTC night
12 Jun 15 UTC gg

12 Jun 15 UTC So many people use 'cancel' as code for "I want to draw" in hidden draw vote games, the answer is simple. Make 'cancel' hidden as well.
