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.

gameID=65286 I was turkey, now lets be honest what the heck is going on this game?
Looks like you got torn apart by Austria and Italy while Russia, England, and France destroyed Germany. THEN Austria and England conquered Russia while both they and Italy began attacking France. Austria betrays Italy, and the game is over. I... think that about covers it?

Hmmm.... You got your ass served on a plate?
I really don't like the way you played your 2 first years, especially the anti-Russian opening when it's pretty clear that you didn't have an alliance locked in with Austria. And Russia obviously had some good comm with Austria...

Well any game I start has is in binary smiley faces...
You're all part of my cult following.

And... maybe I'm being dumb, but I really don't see where the multiaccounting is particularly obvious in this one. You could sub ☺ and I as Italy and Austria (or vice versa if you have to :P) and "they're cheaters!" gets replaced with "well, they've done gunboat before, they just signaled the right moves at the right times" or what have you.

Granted, I didn't check past history... maybe that's where it was obvious? Except that no one said anything about cheating until it was a gunboat, so I figured it was the gunboat aspect that made it so clearly cheating.

Well, i reported the same three players last saturday so why are they listening to you and not me :(. gameID=65124

But how does it workes. Can you get points back? Will the influence of losing be canceled from the Ghost rating calculation next month?

Actually it wasn't just Italy, Austria, and Russia, it was also Germany and userID=34756 that got banned too. I think there were two different sets of multi's in this game, lol
@Eden, Italy's moves do not make sense for a player that wants to get a draw or even a win, he clearly was more concerned with causing France enough trouble that Austria could win during the later stage of the game.
