Question concerning game rules (pms)
Hi there! I need a public and official reply by a MODERATOR.
If you play a match without anonymous players, but even without private chat (only team chat): Is it allowed to write the other players private messages in order to negotiate? In my opinion everbody see the names of the other players and everybody can write to the other players, so it is a fair system. It is a very important part of this game to negotiate, you know.
How are the official rules?

WebDiplomacy Website Buy-In/Ownership
Just a question that I have, not too sure if anyone can answer them. I have been pondering how people own the site. I know that you can become part of the Moderator/Admin Team or donate to the site, but how would someone go about purchasing the Web Diplomacy site?

new game(s)
Hello! I am looking to start two new games.
ckroberts (3548 D)
05 Jun 17 UTC
I need some games, so I am going to start two, one starting as soon as possible and the next a week after. The break and the 24/36 hour difference is because the biggest time commitment, in my experience, comes at the very beginning and very ends of games, so they shouldn't overlap. I am fine if anyone wants to join both games.

Starting as soon as possible:
Classic map, rulebook press, 24 hour phases, semi-anonymous, bet size doesn't matter to me
1. ckroberts

Starting a week after that game:
Classic map, full press, 36 hour phases, semi-anonymous, bet size doesn't matter to me
1. ckroberts

right. and if one ever needs D coin that doesn't have to be earned by playing the game - just get it from zultar at christmas (ok blade - don't go down that path -- just makes you mad - it's the weekend, yay!)

Cancelling a game
I've never cancelled a game before, but i'm wondering, if you cancel a game, will you get your starting coins back? Say you bid 10, will you get 10 back when you cancel? Also, what about if you take over a civil disorder?

The Last Known World Game
I just finished up the second to last Known World game, http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=187834, on 36 hour phases, which we probably played a few years further than we might have for that honor. This leaves one 10-day phase game in a still relatively early state, http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=187877
