Congrats to Village Idiot on his solo!! http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=237244

It's getting really hard to keep track of all the ODC games when all the colours keep changing...
Have you tried telling the players to have fewer mood swings?

The colors are an April Fool's joke. Nobody in their right mind would think that is a good idea.

Re: Home Page Updates

The colors symbolize moods... OK, what color symbolizes what? And why are they changing so often??? (because the bot gives a different analysis every time?) It's an unsupervised dimension reduction / clustering model. Basically, we encode your press (and mouse movements) into a 3 dimensional vector...

We're very lenient regarding private games. You might receive an email from us though. Just reply and you'll be fine if no one controls two accounts. We know the difference, but I won't share our methods.
Is it a cookie?
No we just have jmo check the Webcam footage.

Re: Italy/Austria in Gunboat

This is pretty rare unless I'm Russia or turkey, in which case my poor play means Austria tends to do very well.

Re: The mass exodus

Apparently, I'm in the "old timer's" group, since I also remember a time when you could log on to this site and take your pick from multiple live games. Unsurprisingly, jmo completely misses the boat … it isn't 1v1 or old tech or generational change. What happened was a series of events like the re...

Re: Announcement et joining game for preventing meta.

While we appreciate your dedication to avoiding metagaming, it might be more efficient and less spammy to PM your friends instead of posting on the forum.

Dear user, Your account has been flagged with excessive sharing of mod secrets and +1 whoring.

Does sharing that screenshot count as sharing mod secrets?
No. Because otherwise the original messages do too and then I'd have to cut my unretirement short by banning myself.
