Re: October GhostRatings Published

Nope, if there are mechanics issues with posts that prevent correct rendering then they'll probably be fixed if anyone with appropriate permissions to fix it notices or if anyone asks.

Re: Game Creation options

Make a private game, send out the invites, and as soon as 1 person joins leave it, then wait till whenever you want it to start to rejoin. Or just tell the 7th person not to join till X date. Make sure you have the join time set to long enough to hit your desired start date.

For anyone who uses the data dump for analysis, there''s no zip anymore. You can get the raw dump in text form at ghostRatingData.txt. This is going to give away my lack of tech literacy, but is there an easy way for me to download that txt file without going to the site and then copying the text? ...

Re: 2018 World Diplomacy Championships - Washington DC

As my first time attending (watching not playing) it was a fun experience. Everyone in the community was welcoming and fun to interact with except for John Jamieson who felt the need to inform a group of us that he'd love to slit our throats open. But what's a good diplomacy meetup without some thre...

Re: Discrimination

Prize removed. I shouldn't have added that without consulting the owners first. If they decide they want to offer a prize at a later date they can figure out how to do it for all past winners too.

Do people want the chaos variant installed here?
There were nine +1s on this post, and I was the TINth.

Sorry.

Totally interested in this. I'm really interested in trying this out.
Sorry folks, this pun was so bad we've tossed the idea of bringing a new variant.

Re: Bring Back PPSC

I'm amazed how much energy is wasted on this when you can still play PPSC on vDip. The real tragedy is that we still can't play Chaos over here, despite having the bigger player base to support it. We've been trying to evaluate vDip variants that are coded in a way that they can be safely ported, b...

Re: Web Diplomacy in school?

We have a nice setup for teachers. We make them the Game Director which offers them a variety of tools over the game. Such as being able to pause for weekends, swap countries around, see who's who if the game is anonymous, post in the global chat, and make other adjustments that tend to be needed wh...

Claesar, that's not actually correct about PPSC.

In PPSC, draws were shared equally (pot divided by the number of players). It was only in the case of a win that you would get points per supply centres.
And even then you couldn't get more then 18 centers worth of points in a classic game.

Re: Rulebook Press as default

This is a site that has made alterations to the game diplomacy to best suit the needs of it's members. The main need is time. That is why we allow phases in the length of days. This is "non-standard". We also do not allow mis-orders, we provide you with a near foolproof method of entering orders tha...

Re: Known World 901 ???

I suppose having them owned by webDipdummy04 automatically would require too much extra coding. This does seem like an obvious solution. On the surface it does. But if you assign an extra unit to a member that isn't in the game do you know what happens to voting pause/cancel/draw, end game point di...

Re: Make me an admin

To answer the question on members being banned. Breaking rules of some sort or another. If you have any specific names you're curious about you can generally look at their profile and see the ban reason, those are normally pretty accurate.

Re: Games haven't processed for nearly 24 hrs?

There weren't any apparent error's so it's possible the issue was on Kestas's side where his server tells the site to process. I can't check that till the end of this week when I'm back on secure servers. So hopefully ghug's restart of processing will hold. If not we'll try and get Kestas to take a ...
