This article came up in a twitter post and i thought it was interesting. Read the article, and in particular read the quoted excerpt from the pulled application. What do you guys think of it? And then also read the comments if you want to laugh a little because there are some very silly ones.
I'm sick and tired of playing with the same 50 persons again and again in a site with 30000 registered members... If you want to play a game with me and you are not an utter noob leave a msg here. the game will have small buy in and will be wta, anon, 1day/turn.

Holiday Book advice, I need a good Ancient History overview
Exactly what the title says, I aways finish fiction books too quick while lounging poolside in the holidays, What I would like is a big history book, Id like to expand my knowledge of the ancient world, the persians,greeks,chinese and so on up to the mongols, maybe 3000bc to 1300ad or so. Could it all be contained in one glorious book? any advice?
I am no longer able to log in, does anyone know why (I have tried 7 different computers across 4 different wifi channels with both mine, and my brothers account. So its not a problem with me) The main question is when will it be back up?
there should be a game mode that is PPSC but no draws. i am sick of people going into games with the idea that there will be a 2-3 person draw from the start. the only way a draw in these game should be initiated is if there are no advancements from any side able an admin or whatever can assess the game and make sure it is actually draw, otherwise itd be cancelled
I doubt it's harder to win, but knowing there are no draws means stabs are more likely to take place if just to end the game. While it is true that the current site requires all players to vote for the draw, the judges and I believe the boardgame say if no SCs change hands for a set number of years, the draw is automatic, so eliminating that rule would make the endgame play differently with poeple taking risks to try and break the 3 or 4 way stalemate without losing.
Is there any way to eliminate a no-show from a game? We've started but have a player who never even logged in to the game. We can't draw or cancel without unanimous approval. How does one resolve this conundrum?
I entered my orders and clicked save. It appeared that the orders were accepted; the 'save' button became greyed and the 'ready' button became enabled. However, when I clicked 'ready' none of my orders were accepted and the turn processed with all my units standing still :(
Everyone loves talking about what you were thinking and how surprised you were by a player's move or a stab, but no one outside of your game gives a shit. The only exception is games with good players like the Mad Marx games who's commentary would actually help people get better
Was the players name "Auto" or was that a mistake caused by the game being anonymous? And should the code-like text <inside triangular brackets> be there or was that triggered by the same thing? I'm not complaining, I'm just asking.
With the preliminary rounds finally resolved, we move on to the championship. Same rules as before: four games, anon, 25-hr phases, same point scoring system, points winner after four games is the champion.
I'm just getting back in to Diplomacy as I haven't played for a while, and I thought I would start off with a global match. Then I thought it might be even more interesting if it was a World Diplomacy global match.
