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?

Why did Pence just hire a CRIMINAL defense attorney?

Why would he? The whole purpose of him becoming VP was to become POTUS. He's watching Trump do a dance to keep from being exposed, but it's going to happen at some point. When it does, he wants to be in good standing and be the next man up. There was no other reason for him to become the VP in the first place.

Eh, makes sense. With all the fake news and stories out there about this Russia hoax and BS it makes sense for them to lawyer up. Just redirect all the BS Russia hoax stories to the lawyer basically.

As I've said for years, this has all been an elaborate, House of Cards-esque plan to elevate Orin Hatch to the Presidency. You people need to catch up.

Pence was on the Trump transition team, so he may have knowledge of all these Russian meetings that are only now being examined. Several members of Trump's team from Flynn on down knew better and didn't initially report them.

Besides Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House is next in line after Trump and Pence.
Hauta (1618 D (S))

Not only was Pence on the transition team, Pence LED the transition team. That means Pence is possibly criminally implicated in anything Mike Flynn did during the transition.

Or not part of the "Republican" party.

They tried to disqualify Obama and McCain by alternative fact they weren't natural born US citizens. Claiming the Democrats were running a child kidnapping ring for pedophiles out of a pizza restaurant.

My all time favorite from Russ Limbaugh that Bill Clinton had trees chopped down at the Grand Canyon for a better photo op. The forest service dug through years of files to find photographs to prove there were never trees at that spot to be chopped down.

Agnew was Nixon's insurance policy since no one wanted Agnew as president.

Is it true that Pence's new PAC is gonna pay the legal bills? Can a PAC do that?
Randomizer (90 D)
16 Jun 17 UTC
Depends upon the PAC and the terms it was created. Most are just used to funnel campaign contributions.

No one expects Pence to pay out of his own money since he isn't rich like Trump and he said he wouldn't use government funds.

https://www.fec.gov/help-candidates-and-committees/making-disbursements/personal-use/

FEC regulations say that if the expenditure is not personal, that is, it arose solely as a result of the person's candidacy or official duties as an office-holder, then it is ok for the PAC to cover the legal bills. In Pence's case, he passes the test. However, if Trump wanted to use PAC funds to pay for a statutory rape defense (arising from underage Russian escorts) that would not be covered.

Just saying I'm by far not a fan of the trump administration and the drama, but pence hiring a criminal defense attorney isn't so much an admission of guilt as it is an insurance policy. If I told you I got car insurance would your next thought be "CB is going to drive his car into a crowd of people on a London bridge" no. This is oence making sure he's legally protected when shit hits the fan with Trump.

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?

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

I am in a game gameID=[199096] that has just reached Spring 6. Someone has taken over Greece after it went into CD (so far, so good) but what I don't understand is that there were no missed orders. I thought there had to be a couple of periods NMR before CD.

Can anyone explain what has happened?
