Live play and multis
Are live gunboats always corrupt and live press games almost always corrupt?

Just wondering... Sometimes I have a couple of hours and want to play. Am I always a sucker?

That one mafia posted made me laugh out loud. Sometimes my girlfriend sees me writing in this forum. She can't believe the things we talk about, and she does not see the point (she also does not get the game Diplomacy).

Oh yeah for sure. Every once in a while when I've been sucked into a long stupid debate on these forums I think back to that comic and am able to walk away...for like 10 minutes. Debate is addictive.

About other webcomics, probably the most underated is SMBC (this is my fav one that has come out in the last month, for ease of finding):

Also from XKCD. If you go to wikipedia and click random article to get any article that isn't a stub, and you keep clicking the first link that appears in the main body text of each article (ie. not in brackets) you'll eventually end up at the article for philosophy, no matter which article you started with.

...holy crap, it only took about 20 pages to get to "Modern Philosophy" from some random region of France.

There's one more page before you get to the actuall Philosophy page, but yeah, it's pretty cool.

Interestingly, that was known to work for at least a few weeks before the comic came out, and the comic started an edit war over the quantity page.

Teen Diplomacy Tournament!
It's time for the younger players on diplomacy to have their own tournament! Great place to play with Diplomacy players your own age. No offense to the older members of course! If enough people post with intrest I'll set up a tournament.

Error
Error triggered: Division by zero.
This was probably caused by a software bug. The details of this error have been successfully logged and will be attended to by a developer.
Got this when I tried to go from page 6 to page 7 of the open games.

Need replacements for banned players
A gunboat WorldDip game, Metal Swarm, needs two substitutes for players who were banned. Argentina and Western Canada are vacant. No turns have been missed and the positions are decent. Low buy-in.

Mod Policies
So, there has recently been some confusion/criticism about how mods handle cases. Without talking about any specific cases, I'd like to review how we handle different cases and the reasons for it. Hopefully, this can turn into a productive discussion, since this site is community-driven.

Gunboat and the
Why the hell can't people press the ready button in gunboat games?????

its not like they are waiting for an answer to a message or anything
its ridiculous. If they want to wait because they cant play in the next phase or something, then they shouldn't have agreed to play in the game in the first place with that phase length

I guess I successfully predicted the future in the October ghost ratings topic
As of Friday, I was in four games. In the last 24 hours (well, 30 technically, but it's close) I received the following message three times: "You were defeated, and lost your bet; better luck next time!" Bye bye, highest GR spot for me to date. I've never been so soundly defeated so often in so short a time.

The United States Shouldn't Have Entered WW2
The United States intervention in World War Two cost 418,000 American lives. And, really, what did the United States gain from it? Hitler was gone and Nazi Germany was destroyed, but much of Eastern Europe running from East Germany to Russia was under the (de jure or de facto) rule of Stalin and the Soviet Union. U.S. intervention fostered the spread of communism by destroying its primary opponent, fascism, thus setting up the Cold War for the next fifty years.

Hi I used to use the email dip judges, and am rather new to the Webdip site. I really like the setup, but I'm not a huge fan of how the maps are drawn. is it possible to generate a "results" map without the arrows for a more uncluttered look?
