Can anyone critique my essay?
This is an essay for my English summer assignment. Note that I'm a sophomore in high school, so don't expect it to sound like an English major wrote it. Also, it's about a mentor of mine, dead or alive. I chose Jesus, and I hope that the atheists on here are unbiased enough to give a good review.

Thank you for your patience
I currently don't have mod status, and most of the mods are on vacations, so fortknox has been handling all the unpause requests himself.

Thank you for your patience while we sort this out. Remember, you can upause games yourself by all voting to Unpause ingame.

Can we program a semi-anon variant to decrease likelihood of multi and meta cheaters?
The variant will show who's playing but not what country he or she is playing. Then the players are able to spot metagamers and possibly multi cheaters right away.
Please give feedback on idea and feasibility.

Thank You, Geofram!
I just wanted to publicly recognize Geofram for sitting for me for an extended period of time in which I had no time to properly pursue my Diplomacy games. He stepped up when I didn't have anyone to ask and ensured my opponents had an opponent instead of a CD.

Why post this in the forum? He deserves the kudos, and anyone who thinks more highly of him for this is icing on the cake.

Noober question
So ... what's the point of Gunboat?

I thought the draw of Diplomacy was supposed to be the wheeling, dealing and cajoling. I don't understand the appeal of taking away messaging.

Downtime info
The database was down for ~1 hour 30 minutes. I've added 3 hours to games to compensate.
The downtime was due to an automatic mysql update script but no script to restart the mysql service, which I've now added in. Apologies for the inconvenience

Registration
It is impossible to register to this game since the switch to the dedicated server, the validation page just refreshes. 6 of our group is already registered, but we cannot (and will not) start a game without the seventh member. If it is a browser issue, IExplorer, Firefox and Chrome are displaying this error.

Hope this will get resolved soon, I'm eager to play with my friends.

Who is a world leader?
It seems I was talking to random people somewhere I'm not proud of about this, so I'm making a thread. Are people like Kim Jung Il and the leader of Iran "world leaders?" Either way, why?

APOLOGIES TO ALL
On these forum threads, I have been offensive, to say the least. As an excuse, I would say it was because I have political differences with people that offend me....but, as suggested, that is just an excuse.

150cc Live Diplomacy Club
Well given that the original thread slid into the depth I figured I'd start a new thread, and try and give a little life back to what I think was a promising idea: Essentially a high class live game club
