What I don't like about Diplomacy
Is that this is a zero-sum game. In order to win, you have to make other players lose. I, as an entrepreneur, libertarian and capitalist, find it particularly hard to see the behavior of people when they think they are playing a zero-sum game. Maybe this is why I take human behavior in the game so hard.

Ghost Ratings
What happens if we can't find ourselves on the list when using control+F? Does that mean we haven't been ranked?

It means you are a Ghost?

"Congratulations, you have achieved the 'Ghost' rating!"

After a certain amount of time without finishing a game you get removed. I think it's set to 3 months now.

Thanks! I had some games finish in February but wasn't on the ratings for that month, so I thought I would ask.

It seems the new batch hasn't heard the news. The very last GR was for February, and new ratings won't come for a while. This is because devs are working on a new system where ratings are integrated into this site as opposed to finding them on an outside site. This came at the cost of not receiving any new Ghost Ratings after February:
a) so that the devs have more time to work on that integration, and
b) so that we the community are used to not asking for them or checking for them.

I don't remember them saying anything about discontinuing Ghost Ratings until such time as a new system is ready. Can you point me to a post to that effect?
Octavious (1707 D)

Is there an estimate for when the new system will be rolled out? Are we talking a month or two, or should we be looking forward to a year of Marxist utopian equality between all players?

Does more scotch equal faster or slower?

Is there a critical level of scotch which generates peak output?

@TrPrado
I never recall reading that they were discontinuing GR immediately, but that it would happen eventually. Unfortunately all I can do is speculate, since I don't have the time to actually reread that entire thread.
Do the mods have an official stance?
A_Tin_Can (2249 D)

I don't recall saying that we'd discontinue GR. At some point, we'll replace GR with the new system, before it gets integrated (it kind of makes sense as a step along the way).

I'll try to get to GR sometime this week.
A_Tin_Can (2249 D)
15 Mar 16 UTC
If there is a post where I imply that GR will be discontinued without a replacement, then I apologise. I definitely didn't mean to say that.
Thanks ATC :)

Voting Strategy
With the current political landscape, I am facing the very real possibility of the two main candidates being, in my opinion, pretty awful. I have had numerous discussions with friends over the strategy, but I bring it to you. Is it worth it to vote on principle? Should I vote third party if I think they are the best candidate? Or do I vote for the lesser of two evils among the big two?

not ready setting
Hello, I'm a newbie here. I am curious. If I put in some orders, save them and click the ready button, my orders are in and everything is great. Later, I go and click not ready. My previous orders were in and now I am changing some of them. I fail to clock watch and the time to make my moves expires. Does the software progress with my first set of orders? Or does the software cause my power to go into Civil Disorder.

Taunt
wouldn't it be great if a troop as its turn could taunt? It would create so much salt. It would do nothing but change its appearance for that turn. I know taunting could be done in global, but still it would be fun.

My mom is creating a recipe book that is going to be published, and she came to a point where she didn't know weather to capitalize as part of the title: "More Than, or Less Than" or not "more than, or less than"
Which way do you guys think is right?

RECLAIM THE NIGHT
Women should feel and be safe walking in the streets every day and night. Sadly, this just isn't the case, all across the world. But once a year UK feminist groups hold a Reclaim the Night march across our cities. Tonight is that night, reclaiming the night for our mums, sisters, daughters, family and friends that just happen to be women.

Roman's never recorded anyone named Jesus being crucified
For an empire which was renowned for record keeping; it always struck me as odd that nobody named Jesus was ever Crucified. I asked my Mormon girlfriend once and they told me it was because Romans were afraid to let the truth get out that they had killed the son of God.

I Demand a Refund
I paid for a car wash after I got gas at Shell this evening but their wash was out of service. I asked for a refund and was told that it wasn't their fault that the wash was closed and that I should come back some other time when it's open and use the code then.

I'm curious to see what other stupid things you all should but can't get a refund for because of jackass cashiers.
