Re: the current , to do list

It is an everyday feature. Contact the mods with your plans and if they seem reasonable we’ll make arrangements so you can use them. We do not need to use limited development resources on something we already have.

I’m locking this and marking it as resolved.

Re: Changed RR, Missed Turns, and Game Create

Takeovers are free. You’re investing nothing other than your time. The game has already been delayed by someone else missing phases. If you think the time commitment is too much and don’t think you can play without using excused turns, you do not have to take over games. The point of removing them f...

Re: Simple Templating

I interpret this as a set of pre-written greetings/responses/threats/etc for press. If my interpretation is correct, I would absolutely use the feature and think it's a great idea That could be what he meant but it won’t happen. Diplomacy is your game to personalize as you will and we will never wr...

Re: Changed RR, Missed Turns, and Game Create

In addition to the above, one might also note that perceptions of what constitutes a good versus bad reliability rating will adjust accordingly as time goes on. There really is nothing wrong with a 70-75% or so reliability rating under these new calculations. Likewise, given that it is much easier f...

Re: Lusthog!

Was 3 excused turns on the table? Do you actually intend on playing the game or just missing phases constantly?

Re: Lusthog!

I'm about to fall off the gunboat GR, so I guess I'll play, so long as there is a prearranged understanding that I'll probably need a brief pause or two in late June or early July. Can't say the duration yet but if turns out to be more than 4-5 days I'll just arrange a replacement. If that's an issu...

Re: Announcing the 2018 GvI and FvA Showdowns

Congratulations to xorxes for winning both tournaments. The amount of domination required to win both is pretty stunning. I'm pretty sure it's unprecedented. What is also unprecedented is paying out double the points to someone for placing in multiple tournaments. That should not have been permitted...

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

You might be right about first century Judaism. I don’t know myself, but if I were under Roman rule and being oppressed, I would have prayed for Genghis Khan over Gandhi.

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

The second part is much more true. Many Christians rely on a doctrine that believes that Jesus will come back any day now riding on a celestial donkey and wielding a flaming sword of vengeance striking down our enemies. This, oddly enough, is exactly what the Jews were(and are still) waiting for. A...

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

I agree with your analysis that there has been a shift in emphasis from logic to empiricism when it comes to how we know things. However I disagree with your stance that the scientific method is somehow superior to logic. I didn't intend to make a blanket statement in support of the scientific meth...

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

First of all, people in the first world suffer too. You don't know my own life and it is grotesquely inappropriate of you to presume that because I haven't suffered the absolute worst that this world has to offer that I haven't suffered at all. No, actually, it's not inappropriate at all. You're sp...

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

To suffer is good to those who don't. You have food. You have a bed. You may have some money. You have a society and a support system around you that gives you opportunity. Every single person on this website has it to some degree, and dare I say most of us on this forum have the privilege of not su...

Re: what does agnostic mean to you?

I consider myself agnostic, so I don't believe in a higher power, obviously. There is no evidence of the existence of anything relating to or made as a result of a higher power among what we see with our own eyes every day. Likewise, the length to which our discoveries throughout this universe have ...

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

The primary reason +1s are still prohibited is because they can be removed without leaving a trace. Cheating is possible in mafia as it is in any game, but I think it is both fair and safe to trust that people aren't cheating. That said, there's no reason to open up more avenues that could be used t...
