Scoring System Proposal
I don't know if this has been suggested but:
1. If there is a winner they get the whole pot
2. If there is a draw, it's always a seven* way draw regardless of elimination.
*Or however many

Best way to learn code
I want to learn how to code, but am having trouble deciding where to start. Their are many free resources, online classes, boot camps, etc. I would prefer to teach myself, but lack the knowledge to know what language I should be learning first and so on. Any tips from the experienced code writers here on WebDip?

Stalemate Gaming
Is there a rule against holding a stalemate indefinitely even though the situation is clear? I think he's hoping the rest of us give up and leave, which if it isn't against the rules yet then it should be.

PPSC discussion thread:
I don't particularly care for PPSC. But saw that another thread was having this discussion as a sidebar and thought it fair to start a discussion thread. There is reasonable support for PPSC and regardless of the majority opinion the minority's should be heard.

Abolish Sum-Of-Squares scoring
Ok, so I understand some people don't like PPSC and don't want it back. I disagree. BUT let's talk about SOS instead. It's a terrible scoring system and is directly contrary to the rulebook.

New Scoring System Proposal
I don’t know if this has been suggested but:
1. In draws have everyone alive share the pot equally (As they should because SoS is garbage)
2. In a solo, the soloist gains a portion of the pot equal to 18* divided by the number of centers controlled by the soloist or survivors (but not neutral centers or those of resigned powers) and the survivors split the remainder proportionally based on their center count.
*Or however many

Gosh Bo people are just so disrespectful these days.... Tell me can we not use libtard because it offends people who are mentally retarded? If so I hardly blame you for it.I doubt that any retarded person would be caught dead associating with liberals. They aren't stupid."

No really, using ableist language is messed up. You should use slurs based on things people are born with. Be it 'race', sexuality, mental/physical disability. You should only criticise people for things they choose - like using the word 'libtard'/gay/N- when they know it is offensive. (I will forever criticise you for saying 'i know it upsets people, but i don't care about people.')

@DammmmDaniel "When did I say i know it upsets people, but i don't care about people.?"

I never said you did. I said when you do, i will criticise you.

And before this comes up.

If you have the privilege of being able to read and write, and having internet access, and the time to play webdiplomacy. Then you also have the power to educate yourself.

So ignorance will not be accepted as an excuse.

You will note, this thing i'm describing, (let's pretend i was inspired by Wheaton's Law: "Don't be a dick") is commonly labeled as 'political correctness', or 'political correctness gone wild'.

"And who are the people calling it that, or complainjng that they can't be dicks anymore?"

CAN'T. that's what we are complaining about. Who si the arbiter of what is "being a dick?"

Most liberals COURAGEOUSLY volunteer themselves as tribute, so they can censor other people.

Freedom of speech bro. it was made FOR dicks.

Also stop man hating by using dick as a pejorative

I watched the presser from yesterday finally. Trump didn't come off as so anti-media as people are indicating here. He was just pissed at Buzzfeed for putting out fake news and refused to talk to them. If anyone else had asked the same question, I think he might have answered it.

CNN actually researched the story with multiple sources. Buzzfeed did some inconclusive research before publishing.

No slypups Trump is obviously a monster who is orchestrating a grand scheme to become a dictator of America once and for all. Get with the program. Wont bother responding to Orothaic as James did so perfectly (plus one for you James) Honestly at this point it is just about analyzing Trump incredibly harshly till we manage to find a flaw with what he did.
