Also, have any of the males pretended to be female to gain trust or to keep from getting stabbed?

Thoughts? What are the Chinese preparing for with all of this land reclamation and military expansion? Is this purely defensive? Or may this be leading to military action?

Designed By
What's better:
Designed by (Name of Designer)
Designed by (Company Name)
So should you name the person who designed it or the company for which the designer works?
Octavious (1707 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
Depends a lot on what it is. If it's quite arty and a lot of the designer's unique personality has gone into it, it's worth mentioning the designer. If it's simply a high quality product built to the standards and philosophy of an organisation, stick to the company.

If it's yours and you're proud of it stick your name all over it just because you can :p.
steephie22 (182 D (S))
20 Dec 15 UTC
I suppose the company name would be better for business, which is more important since it would be my business.. maybe combine them somehow?
Octavious (1707 D)

Is the question you want to ask "Can I name my company after me, and will it make me look like an arrogant tit?". Because the answers are yes and yes, but the second yes doesn't matter because you've got your own business and they don't, so sod 'em ;).
steephie22 (182 D (S))
20 Dec 15 UTC
Haha, no, the company name isn't me.

What I meant is maybe I could do something like 'Design by [Name of Designer] (Working for [Company Name]'. Not sure though.
Chumbles (959 D (S))
20 Dec 15 UTC
If the design is excellent and you reckon to major on that guy, then the designer. An example would be, say, Reiner Knizia (sp?). The company does not design the game! Take "Designed by Waddingtons" You don't see it because it's not possible! But best of all plan on at least twenty playtests. You will adjust and change the original design as you go. (I once created a game [FALL OF EMPIRE] which went through this process and even once I'd decided it wasn't commercially viable, the playtesters carried on playing it!) Better to have "From the Marque of Steephie & Co"

That works for the boardgame!
However, I was actually thinking about what to put at the bottom of a site in this case.

I did not clarify so my fault. I'll use the one by Jeff for the boardgame most likely though!

Probably most important thing is that the "product" performs to the highest standard.
If it's a dud product, then that tarnishes whichever name is on the product.

Eg certain American prime movers with a name similar to a southern US location got a terrible reputation for poor build quality, steering and handling, shaking themselves to pieces etc
Not Peterbuilt, or Kenworth or Mack
So no one wanted to buy them.
It's been said that rather than fix the problems with F*** Lou*****lle prime movers and trucks, it was simply cheaper to rename them, with a name that implies high standards, like one that had a historical connection with a reputable form of currency.

Another example, who'd want to be Comrade Lada, and share a name with those useless four-wheel drive vee-hicles
MajorMitchell (1033 D)
20 Dec 15 UTC
Please note, i only express personal opinions regarding those vee-hicles
They may well be automotive engineering excellence

Created a new webdiplomacy.net app for the smartphone

Its really simple, anytime you join a live gunboat, you set an alarm and it reminds you "hey dumbass you joined a gunboat". Then you play that gunboat from anywhere on this amazing thing called a web browser. It comes standard on most phones and its really cool.
I get live updates straight to my phone anytime on webdip by just refreshing the page. You can download this free app simply by going to www.webdiplomacy,net and logging in on your phone!
