Etiquette for pausing a game?
So I am going for a long weekend and am not sure if I will have internet access. Do I just /pause? Do I give an explaination, duration?

How often are pause attempts ignored?

Points
When you guys create games, what is your reasoning behind the amount of points? Is there a reason you go with 13 points per person, or 34 points per person? Why not just 10, 15, or 30?

Germany has told us he will go into CD. Is there anything we can do to replace him/her with another player before he goes into CD?

The Diplomacy People-Who-Are-Awesome Awesome-Off
How it works: We start with me posting any historical or fictional person (Post 1).
This character has a challenger - any other historical or fictional person who hasn't come up yet - named in the next post (Post 2).
We vote on which is more awesome (Posts 3+). Once one person has a 5-vote lead or 15 votes are submitted, the person who wins is reposted, and a new challenger is posted.

Hey, no whispering over in the corner! (Public Press In The Forum Only)
The title got cut off in the game, but this is a Public Press Only game and we'll use this thread for the press.

Draugnar (15 D (G))
24 Feb 09 UTC
Sorry, folks. I really like 12 hour phases. I check in the morning and in the evening and at various times throughout the day. By doing 12 hour phases, you can normally get through one real season in a day, including the winter builds after the fall. A year basically takes 2 days to run versus 4 to 5 on a 24 hour schedule.

So, Austria has decided to agressively move towards Italy. I bet someone sees that exposed flank as an opportunity to grab up his SCs from behind him.

Draugnar (15 D (G))
24 Feb 09 UTC
No problem. It actually got cut off by the system. Next time I'll START the name with the variant and then name it beyond that. Gunboats and Public Press are two of my favorite variants.
Draugnar (15 D (G))
24 Feb 09 UTC
Hey sokolov, you get to Galicia and I'll get to Tyrolia. Then I'll support you into Vienna. Sound like a plan?

I am still trying to figure out what Gunboat means lol
sokolov (104 D)
24 Feb 09 UTC
Was planning on moving in that direction anyway, let's see how the next phase plays out.
Draugnar (15 D (G))
24 Feb 09 UTC
Cool. As far as gunboat, that is no verbal or written communication at all. Public Press means you can chat, bet everyone gets to see it. It's easier to police these on a Judge, which has the capabilities for the various types of press built in.
sokolov (104 D)

A game question
May a player put himself into CD (with I suppose /cd) and then take up another available (and better) position in the game as a different country?

Suppose in a game, you have four sc and a player who has eight sc drops. Can you put your country into CD, drop from the game and then take the other country’s position. Is this legal, is this poor game play, is this cheating?

Is the "draw" strategy valid?
Some players play to win, others play to gain points. Until recently, I thought of those as WTA and PPSC. In my most recent game, I came across a player that used a "I don't go for wins, I go for draws" strategy. I found myself handcuffed by my history of playing for wins.
