Biggest game of all time?
Would it be appropriate/allowable to have commentary on the biggest game of all time? I ask because it is an anon gunboat game. But it seems like the type of game people could learn from like school of war.

Have you ever seen this rare beast in a game that was not marred by NMR? If so, how did it come to pass? And how well did that country do in the long run?

Ghost Ratings and CD Takeovers
Do the Ghost Ratings include games where the player takes over a CD? If a player regularly takes over CDs in a more or less hopeless position does it effectively screw up the player's ghost rating?

And, finally, why do I keep taking over hopeless CDs and should I seek professional help?

Yeah, the mod team is just kind of embarrassing at this point. I recently got a notification from a mod on a paused private game saying that the game was going to be cancelled within three days or something - no clue WHY when it is a private game and as far as I know no one formally complained... but they can't fucking catch FortressDoorEqualsCuck

I'm usually polite, but to the people criticizing the mods, frankly, fuck off.

A number of mods who have worked their asses off to serve people on this site have recently retired. As a result, we are rebuilding the team, but it is a time consuming activity and it takes a lot of work. The mod team is currently back logged and there are a series of issues with the site and site development that our current system, which is very old and outdated, cannot handle and we are trying to take care of that as well. So no, we have not been on top of catching cheaters as quickly as we can. It's also shit like this with people bitching about the mods that make it harder to keep good mods around as they work tirelessly to serve this community, only because they want to give back to the community and help others. They work their asses off doing an often thankless task and if they are ever behind or not up to your speed or if they make a mistake, you give them shit for it. If you want to help instead of actually just complain because that's what you do, then fine; otherwise, email them to let them know if there is a mistake or if there is a possible cheater/multi-accounter they should look into.

It's rude and a disservice to the mod team to disparage them when you feel like it, and it discourages responsible people from joining the mod team as they are liable to get shit for doing the best they can in their free time, which hurts everyone on the site. So frankly, fuck off.

I sympathise entirely with the views expressed by our Omnipotent Zultar, and his frustration with the lack of respect for the Almighty Mods is demonstrated by his rare public profane outburst..surely an indication that he's angry. The Almighty Mods do heaps of great work to make this the best Diplomacy site on the internet thingy. Sure, they're not perfect, but they do a lot of unnatractive/unpleasant work that I bet can be tedious and time consuming. It's not all swanning around in Omnipotent Zultar's Magic Cave drinking sherbets and smoking the hubbly bubbly.. So let's show a bit of respect and gratitude as well as the usual mild joshing, mainly about good old Ghug. But please cut out the really unfair and offensive whining.

@ SmokeyGem.. One doesn't cheat or chaet on a spouse, you're also possibly confusing sexual fidelity with loyalty. A person might "go philandering", or " deviate from rectitude" or "engage in cuckoldry". Cheating is traditionally associated with gambling and games of chance, games, sports & competitive events. imho.

Talking to other Players
Just wondering what other people think about how to communicate to other players. Some players go over the top and just write way to much, in my opinion. On the other hand there are people, like me, who keep it direct and to the point. Which way is best?

Balance in Modern Variant
I just got back into diplomacy after a two year hiatus and looking back at my old games I've noticed that the modern variant has big differences in skill required to be successful between countries. So I ask, has anyone been successful with Ukraine or Egypt?
