Do you remember me? Anyway, I might not be back permanently. I may play some games, but I'm mainly here to ask you guys a question, because I know I can trust you guys to be brutally honest. So anyway, the question will be inside, and it will take a while for me to write; it's pretty long.
"5. The Pause/Unpause feature is not a diplomatic tool The pause is there to stop players missing their orders, but is not part of the game. As such pausing or unpausing should not be used for diplomatic gain, such as refusing to unpause unless other players will draw the game. If it is being abused staff may step in to sort it out."
Bug in the "Threads/Replies" part of a players profile
I'm assuming others have noticed this, but if you haven't, it takes awhile for a thread or reply to actually appear there. And if you have too many, the page will crash. Does anyone know what governs this behavior? As best I can tell, the number of posts missing is somewhat proportional to the number of posts you've made.
I played diplomacy with a group of freinds and found it to be very different then on web diplomacy not only beacues of the obviose things but in how peaople were more willing to launch venndetas against people has anyone else had this happen?
http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/07/08/graphic-the-last-shuttle-launch/ So, with NASA's final space shuttle launch today, where does that leave the US (and international space program)? Is this even something to be sad about or should we be focusing our cash-money elsewhere, anyways?
I've been following lately everything that has being going on there and I was wondering if history is going to repeat itself as, quoting one of my friends 'divorce often leads to even greater poverty and woe'. Indeed, being Africa, some argue that harping on “blood of martyrs” they'd better prepare for tribal violence and government corruption.
Wow - cool Dip tournament in Indianapolis... Aug 4-7
"Gen Con Indy is the original, longest running, best attended, gaming convention in the world. For nearly 40 years, Gen Con Indy has been setting the trend and breaking records. Last year, more than 26,000 unique attendees experienced Gen Con Indy."
So I got this question: I may be fairly new to this game, but I read up a lot and have a few games under my belt. But as far as I understand, stabbing is an integral part of this game, right? But still I get players with lots (LOTS) of games finished really bitching (and I mean bad 4-letter words here) at me for stabbing them. Is it them or me? What are your thoughts?
Corisca is a French territory, but is colored according to whoever holds an Italian territory (Tuscany I think?) when it should be the color of whichever power controls holds Marseille. Whereas Sardinia is Italian and never changes color (and neither does Crete). Meanwhile Iceland changes color based on whoever owns Clyde instead of the more logical Denmark or Norway. These questions going unanswered hinders my ability to play Diplomacy and function normally in day to day life.
Its what I get every time I talked about history with my students, I nodded in support but I really wanted to tear my hair out. Are there truly lessons from the past or are those "lessons" merely the result of hindsight?
