Question about 'Ready'
If you 'Save' your orders but forget to press 'Ready' does the system process the 'Save' orders or count your turn as having received no orders?

Essay help
So I have to write an essay on the Caribbean, and the topic I chose was the economic effects of colonization in the Caribbean from the 15th to 18th century.
I want the arguments to focus on how colonization benefit or hurt the economy, e.g. gold, sugar, slave trade

Is it okay to ask for help from outside a game?
I would really appreciate some outside help with games I'm playing, kind of like tutoring, and I don't want to ask for help if you feel that it's unfair or whatever. I'm new around here, but enjoying the experience. I haven't played in -cough, cough- years and am glad I found this place. Thanks.

Sir Nicholas Winton
All this one-sided talk of Israel today reminded me why we have a nation in the first place - World War II. It also reminded me why the Jewish religion still exists, because of people like Winton. If you don't know the story:

Hillary?
So fellow United States citizens. This next election in 2016 is going to be my first presidential election. I already have an opinion of who I would like to vote for, for reasons that I have fully developed. I am curious how everyone else feels about Hillary Clinton.

CD -_-
There needs to be a punishment for people who CD. Like i hear stoning works well. maybe guillotine? I personally think the old fashion firing squad should handle these people pretty well.

The Westboro Baptist Church has a SoundCloud page. They have 7h30 worth of parodies, some good, some bad (in terms of singing, production, etc.).

In particular, 666 (Pumped-up Kicks) is fairly well done.

Obi mentions Shakespeare.
Obi name-drops another author.
Obi writes a tl;dr post.
Obi's post is absolute shit.
Two shots if all of the above occur in the same post.
krellin writes something racist.
Putin apologizes for Vladimir Putin.
Putin is an absolute buzzkill.
Two posters get into a fight (additional shot for each poster that joins the stupidity.)
A WebDip-specific Meme is posted (ie, YOU DON'T KNOW SHIT ABOUT THE X)
Draugnar threatens to leave over a mod decision.
Bob Ghengiskhan is mentioned in anyway at all.

PE and I are the only participants of the Google + live game from a few years ago and he and I can both vouch for how much fun it was. Of course, he didn't actually play. I'd love to set up another one - I believe we also had pjmansfield, Barn3tt, CF, and Thucy. Thucy could join from Nicaragua or wherever the hell he is.

Yes steephie, there is a certain level of trust that goes into most interaction with other humans. We can't cover everything. If you fake drunkenness, you're a pathetic human being and don't deserve to have alcohol ever again.

Same goes for orgasms, peeps.

"If you fake drunkenness, you're a pathetic human being and don't deserve to have alcohol ever again."

Common strategy at the poker table, but then we poker players aren't exactly known for being the most virtuous. Kind of like Diplomacy players. Whatever gives you an edge and isn't spelled out as cheating is fair game in poker, diplomacy, and life in general.

End of each year, you have to drink in accordance to the number of centres you have divided by 3. If you are forced to disband, drink.

I think that would probably be a sufficient amount of drinking for a diplomacy game, while having the added benefit that those who are doing better, drink more.

what is the average age of webdiplomacy players?
Is there a statistic? I want to know. In a game I felt I was playing with the stubbornness of a child. He/she wanted ALL his way. All the negotiation was "this is mine mine mine". He/she couldn't see the repercussions of a bad decision because he/she wanted the gratification of now.

Seriously, knowing the age of a person before starting a game or a negotiation can help a lot. Psychological speaking.
