Feature request: time clock location
It would be really nice to have the countdown clock right above the order menu. That way one wouldn't have to scroll up to see how many precious seconds are left (wasting precious seconds). Would be pretty useful toward the end of the 5-minute 1v1's in which there are a lot of orders to fill.

Any predictions about Lada Gaga and the Superbowl?
Who wants to guess if she's going to go all Byonce and get political during the halftime show?

My guess: In the middle of her song, she'll start advocating for PPSC and announce an engagement to Krellin.

Heckling Feature Request
It's fun to observe games, but would be even more fun if there was a sideboard to heckle and commentate on games by people who aren't actually part of the game. This would be particularly interesting for those games among top players.

Iran announces it is abandoning the US dollar
http://theantimedia.org/iran-ditched-dollar-us-matters/

This could be the start of A) war with Iran (though they will come up with other excuses to sell it to the public) or B) a collapse in the value of the US dollar - which could result in many other countries abandoning it as a reserve currency (which is a threat to national security, hence A)

Was Jesus a Vampire?
I was curious, if Jesus was a vampire, like most scholars now assume; was he malkavian, ventrue, brujah, toreador, nosferatu or tremere?

Dearest Dipbro Brainbomb, please do not use the term " mother*****" in it's explicit form, in forum posts. I dislike even having to use it in a forum post in the partially disguised form. It is offensive, imho, to all women and to many men, myself included.
As I have remarked many times, the English language is one that allows such diversity and richness of expression, so why say "I don't give a f***", when you can pinch from Shakespeare and say, Had I ten thousand fires burning to my purposes the least smouldering ember would represent " x", the pettiest of my concerns, or try to compose a similarly erudite expression of your own ?

@ BB...no Jesus like a vampire just like the easter bunny and santa, and snow white and the seven dwarves and odin and Buddah..stories and fantasys that result in a desperate grasp at diveriting the blame for our own bigatory and biase racism, and an excuse to persecute others . When we should simply own what we beliveve and the actions that come from that. It is a more honest way to live..

For example if you hate gays and abortion dont say ITS BECAUSE GOD TOLD ME IT WAS BAD..Just own thefact that that is what you hate ..

If you hate other races because they are different dont spout religiuos resaons or even try to pervert science IE ONLY SOME OF US DECENDED FROM GOD THE OTHERS FROM MONKEYs. For your own sake grow up own the belief for yourself not on behalf of " somone/something else"..

Dipbro Brainbomb, I don't care who you are discussing, please find alternative ways to describe even the most evil, terrible persons. Please do not use the M-F word in the Forum. It's offensive to all women and many men. @ Capt Brad. You are, in my opinion acting like a cork brained clown, Firstly, we are trying to improve the standards of expression used in the Forum, we are trying to make WebDiplomacy a friendly environment for women in particular. Now I often refer to the fire breathing MemSahib, Her indoors lying on a couch eating cake, so I am not suggesting that women & men cannot be described satirically or humorously, but I'd suggest there is a huge difference between me saying I think you are acting like a cork brained clown, and me calling you a M-F.
As to Jesus, if he exists then he has a powerful Daddy and substantial powers himself, so he is, if he exjsts, quite capable of defending his own reputation from Brainbomb's ridiculous suggestion that he might be a vampire, I would think.
Smokey Gem makes an excellent point, All these Haters refuse to step up and take complete personal responsibility for their hatreds, they turn to powder and try to dodge responsibility by using the old "God told me to hate" bulls**t.
How wonderfully inconsistent these false "Christians" are, they purportedly worship a Good of Love, a God of forgiveness, but spew out all this hatred... Religion at work ...not looking so good does it ?
MajorMitchell (1163 D)

@_Capt Brad, keep calling me minor michelle, but don't ever call me a M-F here. I don't mind this "minor Michelle" tag you've come up with, partly because it reminds me of an old song, " Michelle, la Belle, dah de dah...." But also I like it because it reveals things about you dearest Capt Brad your psychological weaknesses. Don't worry about the size of your "wedding tackle" ~ it is what it is. Go out and purchase a large, noisy, powerful car or motorbike, that's what most men in your unfortunate position do. Also, may I suggest that you resolve any doubts about your "masculinity". It's also OK to play around with that " image" of yourself in private with a lover.. I have been recently, it's a hoot and a lot of fun.
MajorMitchell (1163 D)
03 Feb 17 UTC
Thinking on that, I'm starting to like the "minor Michelle" tag, so I invite all members at WebDiplomacy to use it if they like, I will not be offended, I'll find it amusing, and I won't imply things about invited users of that tag that I may have implied about it's creator.

It is also fair to say that I know from recent playful experiences that NO amount of cosmetics, lingerie and women's jewellery will ever make "minor michelle" beautiful in the traditional, surface appearance, commercial advertising type of ( false, imho) standards of beauty.

How does muting work?
I've never muted someone in a game before. Therefore, I am quite ignorant about how it works. Clearly if player A is muted by player B, B won't receive any messages from A while they're muted. What happens when B unmutes A? Do all the messages A sent to B while B had A muted suddenly appear, or are they lost forever?

New game Classic
Just went to a FTF tourney. Was fun. Want to play some more classic using the standard tourney rules (except of course 1 Day turns instead of 12 minutes).

Set it at 101d to filter for more reliable players. If that's too steep but you like the rest, chime in here, and I will make a new one with lower bet.
