Minimum players in classic game
Hi all, my first time creating a game on my own. Is there a way to set the game to only 4 or 5 players for a private game? I didn't see any option and it shows "game will start when all 7 players have joined" now. Thanks for any help!!

Chat history
I really want to review all the messages I sent to someone, but the history logs appear limited. Are they just gone, or is there any way to see the full message logs with a player from a game?

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?

Should Capitol Police protection be extended to all members of Congress?
At the Scalise incident this morning, the Capitol police were present only because Scalise was there. Without them, the shooter would have had a clear field until Alexandria police arrived. Shouldn't the Capitol Police protect EVERY large gathering of Congressmen?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t this shooter simply a “good guy with a gun,” you know — before he opened fire on several members of the United States Congress?"

Random question: If a presidential candidate of a major party decides to change his name during the campaign, what happens to his name on the ballot? Does it change automatically? If not, and the original name remains, would the person receive the votes attributed to his previous name?

Crediting Churchill with creating the NHS is wrong. It was Clement Atlee's Labour Govt that in 1946 passed the act which founded the NHS.

"- why should people be allowed to have guns?

because we have a right to defend ourselves from government tyranny. people often say it's for self defense or it's simply a tool, but those arguments are only mere sidenotes compared to the ultimate reason for gun ownership, which is to prevent fascistic rule."

One could argue that the VA shooter was doing exactly this.

"- but surely the USA has enough checks and balances?

well, the second amendment is the BIGGEST check and balance. it's the final protection of rights of individuals. the idea that Democracies NEVER turn tyrannical is simply wrong, and if you say you know exactly where the USA will be in 100 years, then you're deluding yourself"

One could argue that the VA shooter was doing exactly this.

No, but I am going to point out that conservatives trot out the "resist government tyranny" line all the time wrt the second amendment. And now some nutjob actually believes it and does something.

They are though. Obama moved into a house with Valerie Jarrett in Washington D.C. and runs the Deep State. They frequently make up these fake news hoax russia stories and use their corporate partners (CNN, NYT) to pump out fake stuff.

@JK

americans tried to negotiate with the king for many years before the revolution, they didn't immediately resort to violence. but when all options in conversation were exhausted, they had to rebel: but not by violence

they simply broke apart from Britain, declaring it to be so. there was no violence, and yet they had the capacity for self protection.

people don't remember that lexington and concord were fought over armed british troops attempting to take away military supplies stored at Concord.


the Bernie supporter (who i don't blame the left for, and i actually certainly don't blame bernie for: he has been consistently against violence, like the berkley riots when milo came, and even saying ann coulter should be allowed to speak)

the bernie supporter did not rebel against government by leaving it, the bernie supporter ATTACKED it. the Bernie supporter did not act in defending his rights.

it also dawns on me that, i don't actually know the bernie supporter's name.
