Re: Ghost Rating formula incorrectly listed on /ghostRatings.php

While I appreciate the work, if Ghost Rating still encourages people to drop out of a game before they lose, and never help out a stalled game by taking up a doomed position, then I think it must still be considered a "work in progress".

Re: I am the G.O.A.T. of press - Any worthy challangers?

I've never really understood that Ghost Score thing (not my priority here, and also I suck). Do bot games count? I recall reading that you don't lose Ghost points if you quit before you lose. I also recall that you DO lose points if you take over a doomed spot to help a game progress. Is that true? ...

Re: Is this acceptable diplomacy?

Made up? Which words are you claiming not to have typed? I can understand why you don't want people reading the filth that you sent me, it embarrasses me too - but the simple solution is to NOT send obscenities and real-life threats to people in your games. Regardless, I'd be happy to drop it all. S...

Re: Is this acceptable diplomacy?

Look, I just want to play some online Diplomacy without having to hear about your anal sex fantasies or being told that you would "put me in the hospital" if you could find me in real life. I don't think that's too much to ask. You wanted this thread to be locked, so stop posting here and Leave Me A...

Re: Is this acceptable diplomacy?

You are the same person who, just earlier this week, said that you were going to purposefully violate site rules until you either got your way or were banned. Unfortunately, the mods let you get your way - so now we all have to deal the ongoing tantrum. Luckily I play online Diplomacy for the entert...

Re: Is this acceptable diplomacy?

I can certainly understand why you would not want people reading the vile messages you have sent. You cannot know someone's age or gender here so it could easily be my daughter (or anyone's daughter) being subjected to your obscene sexual fantasies. I'm just looking for accountability, and if my act...

And "borderline offensive"?
This link is a (doctored for format) screencap of a small sample of messages I've received from Gring86. Please read this (note:NSFW) and tell me it is "borderline offensive".

This morning I was sent a PM from Gring86 on vdiplomacy.net, making it clear that he intended to carry out his cross-server harassment.

Is this acceptable diplomacy?

Quick question: is this sort of diplomacy (from Gringe of course) acceptable? I've explained that there's no grudge and the game state backs that up, so I assume he's just trying to drive me to Mute him while he launches a massive propaganda campaign on the Global channel. I was going to email this ...

Re: Speaking of cheating accusations....

This has been resolved. Some information from the mods regarding what happened would have been nice - but regardless the game is unpaused and so we'll continue (or not). Thank you.

Speaking of cheating accusations....

Speaking of cheating accusations, how long do these investigations typically take? We're entering week two of our game on pause over this. Is it permanently hung, or will a decision be made at some point? If so, when, and what are the potential outcomes?

Re: Why do site rules protect cheaters and punish the honest

Blocking sounds like a great idea. I once received the following text from a player, and the mod's advice was just to mute them. "You weak, sad, pathetic little man. If this was a face to face game, I would have taken you outside, snapped your jaw and left you in hospital for a month. Your lucky thi...

Re: Anyone know what's going on with moves not processing?

I think that a lot of the time it just requires a restart (or some other fairly minor fix) but the mods may not see a problem report here for quite a while. Shooting a quick message to [email protected] may help. I'll do that now.

(And mods, please let me know if I'm wrong.).

Re: Is Beta for Classic games optional?

I found a way to get the menu visible again and, yes, there is an option under "Info" that lets you switch back to the "Legacy Board".

Re: top of menu permanently off the top of my screen

Found a workaround. If I zoom out (CTRL + mouse wheel in Chrome) then the menu resizes and the top bar is visible.

top of menu permanently off the top of my screen

I joined a classic game that is in the beta style and I cannot continue because the fountain pen menu is stuck at the global chat scene due to the top of the menu being permanently stuck "above" the game window (and out of sight and so inaccessible). Scrolling up just scrolls the global chat. The to...

Re: Is Beta for Classic games optional?

That had no effect. I think there was an option on that all-encompassing fountain pen beta menu, but I can no longer see that as my beta menu is stuck permanently at the global chat screen now (as the top, where the options are, is permanently off the top of my screen).
