South America Variant
I have no friends. So between my mom and dad and two siblings we play the 5-player South America map. I searched "Diplomacy South America Strategy" and only get Risk results. I am always the first to lose and my parents laugh every time and tell me to make myself useful and do the dishes while they enjoy a game with their real children. Any help?

Diplomacy mentioned in controversial Buzzfeed gaming post
Yes, you read that right. Buzzfeed somehow made a post about gaming controversial.

This is the post: http://www.buzzfeed.com/tomchivers/monopoly-sucks
You'll see that Diplomacy gets high marks.

Parody threads aren't against forum rules. If that was the case, we'd have already silenced Eden for his MM parody thread.

@SantaClausowitz:

"parody threads are against the rules"

Quote the rule which they violate.

How is this a parody? I do admit that this thread is inspired by your thread, but only in the way that when I read it it occurred to me for the first time in my life that the name of the band "Rolling stones" can be understood as a statement, not object, which I found quite funny at the moment.

And I'd like to go on the record saying that smoking anything, including tobacco and cannabis, is a very bad habit and I sincerely believe all smokers should try to quit or at least minimize their smoking, as well as take extra measures to prevent their friends and family from entering this addiction.
Jamiet-

If I recall, they were classified as spam when they silenced me for it.

Glad I can help you again with your random inquiries.

Would a moderator like to comment on this? I note that this thread has been in existence for three days and has not been subject to any sanction.

This thread would have already been relegated to the third or fourth page of the forum if it wasn't for repeated inquiries as to its "spamminess". Santa's thread to which he is referring was technically silenced for spamming but also targeted an individual user, not to mention giving mods more work to do.

I believe the view the mods take on parody, and jokes in general, is that they're fine if they're funny but spam if they're not. Sadly most of us aren't nearly as funny as we think we are. That would explain why Nigee has been silenced for the best part of a year, anyway.

The problem was not a single parody thread at the time. The problem was multiple members spamming the forum over and over. For your convenience, a list of the threads made within a 2 day span that lead to quite a lot of silenced members.

Does everyone cheat in this game?

These threads were pushing actual diplomacy threads off the front page, which is what resulted in everyone involved being silenced. The difference between that situation and this one should be clear.

P.S. If we locked non-funny threads this one would already be locked.

Thoughts on Modern Diplomacy II?
Hello, I'm returning to WebDipWorld after an absence of several years. I am interested to know what the community thinks of this Modern Dip II variant. Is it enjoyable? Fairly balanced? (I don't expect perfection from a variant . . . )

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
