How can I become a crappier person
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?

There's a new robot called the omnibus that does all the work that needs to be done -- faster, cheaper, and more accurately than any human can do. Wrinkle: only one person owns it. Is this a problem or a blessing?

So guys, as some of you know I can be a bit of a troll on the forums. This also tends to mean I'm a bit of a troll on other internet platforms that aren't webdip. One of them being tinder. This time I thought it would be hilarious to make this my bio and see what happens: http://imgur.com/tW86lIi

I was wondering if personality traits can make it harder for someone to ever get good at this game. I consider myself pretty average if not mediocre at diplomacy for a number of reasons.

Indulgences
What would happen if science could prove even theoretically that an afterlife exists that is based on morality? Also if this happens would it be considered spam to offer indulgences on webdip.

Who's morality...?? use the train track conundrum where a train is going to crash with 10 people on board , if you switch the track the train wont crash but will kill 10 people working on the other track..you stand at the switch, . You can of course use the same premis with kids on train , or old people on train does this change your descision..so again who's morality..

Or a Doctor who will find the cure for all cancers , but also kills children. If you improson him he will refuse to find the cure . So do you ket him keep on killing for the rest of his life so on his deathbed he tells everyone the cure or do you stop him now ?? Morality is a POV not a fixed point.

The sun shines whether it is day or night, or you can see it or not or if you believe it or don't. What is, is. Morality exists whether you particate or refrain. And the train and doctor anecdotes are straw men for people who would rather choose their way rather than the right way.
Smokey Gem (189 D)
17 Apr 17 UTC
The "right way " , The " just dont be an asshole" are still subjective POV's. and not firm or fixed morality..

BB I dont want to debate morality..for this threads sake pick a diety and we can discuss the benifits of spaming indulenges on webdip for afterlife benifits.

I'm not sure what "an afterlife based on morality means". If you're referring to the system where God gives you credit for doing good shit and you lose credit with God for doing bad shit and your final score determines whether you go to heaven or hell, then the result of discovering this would obviously be that evil long-term thinkers go to heaven because they really wanna grab that pussy but they already used up most of their God-credits so they gotta save some up first.

Coincidentally, this is why I would be immensely disappointed if there was a God according to traditional Christian (and other) belief(s). I want to live my life doing what I consider to be the right thing because I give my life meaning in this way. I would feel utterly disappointed if I found out that I've been scoring points.

INQUISITOR: You have been granted the greatest gift of all: the gift of
life. Tell me, what you have done to deserve this superlative good
fortune?
RIMMER: Well, I say this with the highest respect, but what gives you the
right to ask -- no, actually -- demand that answer of me, Your
Magnificence? (He curtsies and bows.)
INQUISITOR: All must answer to the Inquisitor!
RIMMER: But how do I know I'll get a fair hearing?
INQUISITOR: Because, like all who stand before the Inquisitor, your judge
shall be...

The INQUISITOR lifts his facemask to reveal... RIMMER's face.

INQUISITOR: ...yourself!
RIMMER: Oh smeg!
INQUISITOR: "Oh smeg," indeed, matey!
RIMMER: Everyone is judged by their own self?
INQUISITOR: It's a bit metaphysical, I know, but it's the only fair way.
Now then, justify yourself.
RIMMER: Well, first I--
INQUISITOR: (Interrupting) Liar!
RIMMER: I've done good things.
INQUISITOR: No, you haven't!
RIMMER: In my heart, I've always tried to do good things.
INQUISITOR: No, you didn't.
RIMMER: Look, in my way, I've tried to lead a good life.
INQUISITOR: When?
RIMMER: Ah! (Points off behind the throne) What's that in the corner?
It's the archangel Gabriel! Well, that's me converted, I'm a new man!
Hallelujah!
INQUISITOR: You are a slimy, despicable, rat-hearted, green-discharge of
a man, aren't you?
RIMMER: Well... sort of, yes.
INQUISITOR: So then, _justify_ yourself!
RIMMER: What else could I have been? My father was a half-crazed
military failure, my mother was a bitch-queen from hell. My brothers
had all the looks and talent. What did I have? Unmanageable hair and
ingrowing toenails. Yes, I admit I'm nothing. But from what I started
with, nothing is up.

Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?

Coup in North Korea
I was trying to think why Trump would engage in such brinksmanship with North Korea. Sure, it could be just more inexperience, etc, but then I was thinking that maybe the goal is to scare the generals there so much that someone bumps off the Great Leader. Then I started thinking, that's probably why he rubbed out his half-brother recently.

"rolling dices"?
I just won a 1v1 against CptMike, however he was getting really angry at me, saying he does not want me to join any more games that he has created, accusing me of "rolling dices". What happened according to me is that I lured him into trying for Munich in Autumn 01, then bouncing him out of there and basically leaving him with only one build.
