Ethics of Diplomacy
So in general, I suppose most people here would say you can, and, possibly, should do anything within the rules to increase their chance at winning.

How about, for example, pretending to be terminal, though? Is that still fine?

Best Of?
I've been getting into the game a lot more recently and was wondering if there was any sort of listing of great or best games of Diplomacy. Games with great strategy, alliances, backstabs, drama, that kind of stuff.

In lue of that post your favorite or best games here. I'm up for reading some good stories.

Drinking healthy
I'm quite a balanced eater, so it's not exactly vital, but apart from water, it seems like almost every drink is unhealthy for your body or teeth in some way. Of course, I could just make sure I vary enough, and I do, but I still think it's good to know what's actually healthy rather than "not that bad".

I absolutely don't have to worry about too much calories, btw. I'm talking about the other stuff.

Does this game have to be cancelled?
Hi. I'm currently in this game in which we had 3 people get banned. There haven't been any moves made yet and it is still in spring 1901. So if we were able to fill the positions, 1 of which has been filled already, would we be allowed to continue? Here's a link to the game.

I think that I can speak for my classmates when we say that we just joined the site because a few people started playing and then it spread to allot of my grade (freshmen) None of us condone the actions of the few who made multi-accounts, and I don't think that we have malicious intent. I am in a public game with one of my friends, but I did not know that he was in it until it started, and we are on opposite sides of the map.
Tru Ninja (1016 D (S))

The issue that's raised is that, generally, when friends play together, they instinctively ally with one another giving them an unfair advantage, or ca communicate in gunboat games, etc. if the whole map knows that you know each other and they choose to join your game, then it's not an issue.

I've played with plenty of friends, relatives, colleagues, etc before, however being MY friend in this game just means you'll get stabbed. So, just understand the nature that comes with having friends here. We do welcome invitees.

I heartily enjoy stabbing my friends to show my own superiority.
Tru - I don't think what our policy is clashes with anything that you're saying. If you let people know before they join that "hey, I know some people in this game" and they choose to join the game with you and your friends, then we have no problem with that. We would only put them on notice if there has been significant collusion going on between friends, as we have seen in this case.

I am one of the students from Haverford... They're talking about the Boys Prep school not the public. A lot of the people who play only play because theirs nothing else to do at school. At school we have 2 different Wi-fis. Depending on the location in the school people may switch between wi-fis. Since their are so many students at Haverford who are playing it may seem like someone were making two accounts. I don't think we were doing anythign wrong because we didn't play in public matches. We simply played in all private matches that had passwords for fun. We didn't understand that the whole point system is why people were getting banned for using two accounts. The people that did have two accounts used two accounts just to fill space on the map because their weren't enough people to join.

The Last Man in Europe...Or, Rather, China
http://news.yahoo.com/25-years-tiananmen-barely-known-china-youth-064659528.html That's honestly very depressing...It was 1989...but its treatment is not too far from "1984." And THIS is why I have such a hard time sympathizing with those shouting "Wake the Fuck Up," as if disagreement over America's future was the equivalent to being asleep at the wheel. Neither Bush nor Obama were the tyrants the Michael Moores and Glenn Becks call them out to be...THIS is The Party incarnate...

Lil' bit of French
I want to know how to say this in French:
"(I would like to reserve the spot) in the period from 16 July to 6 August."
That might not even be a proper English sentence, but you probably get what I mean. I just need to make clear in which period, and I don't know how.
Monday morning I'm handing in a letter in which I need that sentence, so there's no rush.
