Seeking a student for the SoW
Hi forum! I'm looking for someone interested in taking over Russia in the School of War. It's 1902 and you're in a great spot. This is an anonymous game, so PM me if you're interested. I will take anyone, however preference is given to those who have completed games and have a low number of CDs.

when someone is erroneously banned midgame, how is it fixed?
A player and friend was mistakenly banned from the game I created for no apparent reason. The game is http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=141372#gamePanel .

Thanks - I'm trying to figure out how to email the mods. How do I do that?

No apparent reason? "Banned by a moderator: multi/meta/no reply" -- meaning the mods emailed this UTF-8 named person, probably multiple times, and this person chose to ignore the emails.
2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))

Email webdipmod@gmail.com.

I assure you your friend was banned for a legitmate reason. The mods aren't in the business of mistakenly banning players. Have your friend send us an email explaining the situation.

And he was also a multi account and/or metagamer on top of that... ^
2ndWhiteLine (3375 D (B))
18 Jun 14 UTC
bo, the multi/meta/no reply is usually our catchall reason for banning when we don't get a reply in the three day grace period. It reflects our original suspicion that led to the investigation as well as the actual reason (no reply) for the ban.

In a nutshell, your friend has some explaining to do and he's already behind the eight ball.
Dave McBride (107 D)
18 Jun 14 UTC
I'll have him email you. He's a very busy person with a demanding job, and I'm fairly certain that he doesn't check anything beyond the game board itself.

Anyways, Dave your friend had multiple accounts, which is against our site rules. We don't allow anyone to have more then one account and require our members to check their emails within a few days. In this day an age it isn't an unreasonable request, especially when they are actively playing in games.

@bo - The passenger pigeon is extinct. The carrier pigeon, however, is a domesticated rock pigeon. The last passenger pigeon died in 1914 I think, and its stuffed and displayed at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens.

@Abge - But the Zoo mods declared it so, therefore it is a confirmation, not an accusation.

@bo - Most people who speak ignorantly claim they were joking when their errors are pointed out. I expected no less from you.

@SY - Is it a cheating accusation when a mod or admin (in this case JMO) says it? Or is it merely a declaration of guilty by the judge, jury, and executioner.

Oh God! I can never unsee that! Krellin, WTF?! Dude, you are fucked up!
mmmmm my sincerest apologies Mr. McBride, I'm afraid we can't do that. you ever see a zombie, son? with my voodoo we can reanimate the body, but the soul, that manifestation of consciousness beyond the physical, that defining characteristic of humanity separating your friend from the other unthinking wild beasts of the bayou, is dead and lost forever to time. even if we brought the body back, it would be an empty husk, a cursed abomination damned to wander the marshes in a despair mankind is blessed enough never to know.

the first manifestation of grief is denial, my friend. he's not coming back. take some time to mourn your loss, but remember that in the end only acceptance of life's inevitable tragedies will bring you peace of mind
