Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

How could you forget, there was only five of us? I couldn’t keep track of the revolving door of GL substitutions, but very nice of you to let every man, woman, and dog in the region get to each enjoy a couple rounds of tournament play. ;) Unfortunately one of our team members had a rather serious r...

Re: World Cup 2018 Signups!

I however, am not teasing about the point prizes that I happen to know were pre-agreed on with the mod team as a condition to run the tournament. :) When can the winning teams and teams that made it to the finals be expecting those?

Re: Negotiating in-game based on our-of-game player scoring

Thank you. That's exactly the question I'm asking. The rules do answer it, but it isn't especially clear, it's hidden in another rule. Metagaming is making decisions based on factors outside of the game in an unfair way. So if someone in your game looked at your profile and decided they hated your ...

Re: Negotiating in-game based on our-of-game player scoring

This has got a little out of hand. The 40/40/20 split is not a matter of negotiation but a statement of the position of each player at the end of the Autumn turn. The offer of a three way draw was to be executed after that Autumn turn. Any misunderstanding about this matter and the fact it was a su...

Re: RR Calculation Wrong?

My main issue with that stupid formula is that is presents itself as a percent but it is not. The average of the non-NMR% and the non-CD% would actually be a percentage in some sense. I guess you guys must have discussed why that simple intuitive formula didn't suffice and so you had to cube it for...

On your way out could you unban krellin, oztra, kansasboyd and wjessop?

we need to spice up the forum.
Hmmm thanks for saying this cause I see oztra has snuck back onto the site under another account. So are you asking for the old account to be unbanned or the new one once it gets banned?

Re: How would you improve the website?

So allowing any combo of messages in a 7 person game means there are 21 possible 2 person chats, 35 3 person chats, 45 4 person chats, 15 5 person chats, 7 6 person chats and 1 7 person chat. So around 125 chats total up from 22 total now. Then do that for a World game with way more people and that ...

Re: How would you improve the website?

Thanks for the feedback. I wasn’t aware until recently that was a feature playdip offered. We’ll have to give some thought into how feasible adding that would be. I see the benefits but it would also be a big change. And just a note, with the color coding we do have a few different color blindness o...

Re: Having trouble logging into 2019 Registration

The issue is the banner displays on the old pages which have a relative path of webdiplomacy.net/ and on the forum pages which have a relative path of contrib/phpBB3/ so any relative path would break on one or the other. I'll give a search a whirl later to see if there's any way to just strip the ba...

It probably doesn't matter, it takes about 10 minutes when the list is done to copy everyone's username and the GR list into excel and write a vlookup to grab everyone's max GR automatically if need be.
Thank you for volunteering

That's a good suggestion. I'll add it to the backlog.

The link at the top of the page is at www.webdiplomacy.net, you are probably logged in through another virtual directory such as http://webdiplomacy.net or https://www.webdiplomacy.net or https://webdiplomacy.net. All of these are the same site but different virtual directory's/ways to get to it. Lo...

Is there a way of making that link go to the most recent page rather than the first? Yes, but I want people to see the intro post too. But for some reason using a list is apparently beyond some people. Maybe that should be a site required entry test. If you cannot figure out how to go to the end of...
