Do points = Clout?
Just a topic i was curious about. Since my return here to the site it seems that since i have over 100 D that my allies are more easily won by show of total games played/won/return on investment rather than the actual diplomacy aspect. I know that we are a easily persuaded race but what are your thoughts on the matter?

Clock problems...
Hi guys, I don't know how it happened, but my clock somehow got delayed. I mean, in the game window, you see a timer before the next phase. Well... mine is 5 minutes BEFORE the real time. It's pretty annoying for the live games...

Newbie question on Ready and players who aren't there
I am in my first game, and we have a player who signed up but is not making any orders. So every time we all hit Ready we have to wait fot the full time. Is there a way to get rid of the player so we can go more quickly? And why do people sign up if they do not want to play?

Sorry if this is a silly question - I also could not find a way to search the forum to see if someone else had posted on the same thing. Is there a way I can do that?

Shameless, hopeless bragging.
So I know it's not really special, but I just played my first successful juggernaught (i.e., lasts longer than 1901) and what's more, it was in a gunboat. Those of you who have played against me know I am pretty average - and you can see that from this game, too - but I'm happy with this and had to let my pride out somewhere. gameID=51955 :)

This Time On Philosophy Weekly: The Root Of All Action (Evil? Obi Has A Theory!)
Well, I didn't want to do three faith/religion-centric Philosophy threads in a row, for those who are tired of it, take this one any way you want--is there a root of all human action, and if so, what is it, and what does this mean for ethics and morality in general? Is there a universal root, and thus a universal morality? Well, I don't know about MORALITY, but I DO ahve an idea as to the root...perhaps not an original idea, but anyway...

Convey through Balaeres in Ancient Med?
From http://www.variantbank.org/results/rules/a/ancient_med.htm (the supposedly official variant site): "Since Baleares consists mostly of water, it is considered a sea space for the purposes of convoys, therefore a fleet occupying Baleares may be used to convoy an army using the normal convoy rules." However, in a game that I am currently playing, it appears that despite the presence of a bordering coastal army, I cannot order a convoy through Balaeres?

Somehow the English do not talk the entire game and French and him are allies? No talking to any other player for 2 hours? But somehow has this great relatinship with France. France tells me he will talk to England to discuss a 3 way draw. Yeah right He's playing both countries.

Does anybody recognise the film this comes from?
I saw this in a film long ago and, being the father of daughters, decided to remember it, but I can't remember which film it's from. Does anybody recognise it?

Scene:Man meeting daughter's new boyfriend for the first time:-
"Remember this: I own a shotgun and a shovel and there's 300 acres of woodland behind the house... soft, loamy, soil... rich, earthy, smells..."

What to do when detecting cheater in anonymous/no ingame message games?
I just want to know how to handle if 2 team players join a anonymous/no-ingame message game.

Is there any way to prevent people doing such stupid things or are there any consequences for them?
Calmon (674 D)
26 Feb 11 UTC
Hi,

The game is still running: gameID=50596 and germany/england do or more or less a lot of stupid moves but support each other by different attacks and there is no aggression between both, let important neighbouring provinces empty and move into more or less stupid provinces. Also never did never announce that by support hold/support move at the start.

The possiblity that -bad player moves/but support each other on attacks/never announcing support/empty important border provinces- is far below 1%. So any possibilities how to hndle this? The game will be a farce with that team and the others don't know about it.

You e-mail the mods at webdipmod@gmail.com and they'll look into it. It's in the rules section. You do not post on the forum about it.
spyman (424 D (G))
26 Feb 11 UTC
Well the mods will look into it. Players can and do support each other in gunboats without cheating.
Calmon (674 D)

@spyman I know this, i play a lot gunboats. But I explained it in my post that I don't think this is the case.

Okay. I guess you did. I didn't fully understand your post. Personally I am not so bothered about these sorts of threads, but quite a few people around here get very cranky. But Vadtrudner is right about the site rules.

For what it's worth, that didn't seem too suspicious to me. The supported move to Sweden could have just been a lucky guess - and it's not uncommon for players to support the territory (Ska, which bordered Germany's Denmark) that they would most like to see the country move in from.

Yes, they haven't attacked each other, but that's not too uncommon.

Autumn, 1901 Large map:

England:

* Diplomacy
o The army at Yorkshire move to Norway via convoy.
o The fleet at North Sea convoy to Norway from Yorkshire.
o The fleet at Norwegian Sea convoy to Norway from Yorkshire.

If they really were metagaming, and it seems like Germany has more of a clue than England, England would have used NTH to support Germany into Belgium, not do an extraneous convoy.
urallLESBlANS (1221 D (B))

England's convoy to Norway is a good sign that he intends to attack Russia only. Then he moved his fleet in Ska to Swe twice, Germany guessed after the first move. Both of their moves are all very efficient.
SacredDigits (120 D)

But using two Fleets to convoy when only one would do? That's not efficient.

"England's convoy to Norway is a good sign that he intends to attack Russia only. Then he moved his fleet in Ska to Swe twice, Germany guessed after the first move. Both of their moves are all very efficient."

This is exactly the type of commentary that is inappropriate for the forums. Especially in a gunboat.
