What kind of site moderation do we want?
I know that we've had this discussion before. I can't recall what we all preferred, but we have ended up with a mod who sees it as OK to taunt, hound and attempt to out-bully another member. Not only is that likely to bring the site into disrepute but it is borderline criminal in Kestas jurisdiction and could lead to site sanctions. Is this what we want?

So a Live Game has been paused
A live game has been paused due to Russia's impending absence, I was wondering if it doesn't start back up as a live game (as paused live games often never do) could a mod change it to a different time per phase so that the game could continue

The Favorite Author Tournament: The Sweet 16
Into Round 3 we go, with Team Virgil once again eking out a victory to move on...will it happen again? Will Rowling or Woolf be able to keep busting through that glass ceiling and move on as the only two female authors left? Will Asimov continue to keep the hopes of fans alive, as after a glut of sci-fi writers to start, he's the last one standing? Will Thucy drop the "vote 12 times per turn" thing now that Thoreau and Laozi have gone the way of Shakespeare? 16 enter, 8 move on!

What to do with a bent splint (right word?) in my mouth?
I already called the dentist and I'm going there tomorrow morning since earlier is impossible, but meanwhile I was wondering if there's something I can do to make it less damaging. The thing is that it's very much irritating the flesh around the teeth, as well as presumably pulling my teeth out of position. Can anyone think of a fix?

Jamiet99uk (141 D)

Ladbrokes, who I think are generally on the money, have England at 28/1 which I think is a more accurate price.

Ok, I'll have 25 D on France. After seeing them win 8-0 in their last warm-up game, I think they've got goals in them.

First, how are you going to cover if a long shot happens to win.

Second, while it's only daggers, its' still gambling and I don't want to see the site run afoul of any laws regarding internet gambling.

Third, if any of your bettors are minors...
Maniac (344 D (B))

1 - I could be in debt for a long time working to pay out Split if one of his comes in, our I could be 55K daggers richer.

I copied and pasted then cut out the buts below 33:1, so they match. I almost cut that one out, but thought "if it wins, I still make 26 D profit".

2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
09 Jun 14 UTC
Just so we're clear on this, the site will not be sponsoring any pot nor will we facilitate any points transfer.

If we were, I would have 1000 on Columbia and another 1000 on Belgium. Just for fun, of course.
Draugnar (0 D X)
09 Jun 14 UTC
So it's all off cause the mods won't transfer the points. Good to know.

In that case, I'll find the optimal betting amount to guarantee me a profit and resubmit.
2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
09 Jun 14 UTC
Its been pretty well established that we do not transfer or award points except in the case of site sanctioned tournaments. If you wanted to set up some kind of tournament - perhaps modeled after the World Cup with similar national and regional teams - and hold it every few years, you're more than welcome to do so.
Draugnar (0 D X)
09 Jun 14 UTC
I'm just as glad, 2WL. I'd rather not see more and more of these deals. I appreciated the April Fools day joke on March 31st :-), but too much of this distracts from the purpose of the site: the game of diplomacy. That's why I haven't gotten into any of the 3? mafia games. I mute them as soon as they come up.
hellalt (113 D)
09 Jun 14 UTC
the best team is undoubtedly Germany. But the cup will go to brazil cause otherwise they ll commit suicide again and also so that noone pays attention to the demands of the brazilian people. so, brazil will win germany in the semi finals and face argentina in the final winning 3-1. btw that's the score that goldman sachs suggests too.

I had a dream that the World Cup was won by the Barbarians, which was a team made up of the best players from nations that failed to qualify. But then I woke up and remembered that football was governed by a bunch of self serving tits and that things like that will never happen.
Fasces349 (0 D X)
10 Jun 14 UTC
well since the mods want to ruin our fun, the alternative is we play a couple of diplomacy games and set it up in such a way that the pots and the winners end up being the people who win the bets here.

Not sure how we could do it given how wide the range of bets are here...
