How to contact a mod
I am wondering how you contact a mod for an issue within a game. Our game was paused by the Webdiplomacy system and we have 2 NMRs that won't be able to vote unpause. I assume a mod would be able to fix the issue, however I don not know how to contact one. Any help would be appreciated

Game 69351 Problem with Pause
Game 69351 says it's paused, but it's not, or at least, it accepted my orders. The players didn't pause it, so I don't know what's up.

So, this thread may be a flop, but I'll try anyway.

Are there any RPN users out there? If so, which calculator do you have?

Cheating?
Ok, first of all, I'm not mad about the game, but look at England and France:

Is really THAT much of coordination possible in a gunboat? I think they are communicating with each other or it's the same person.

A consequential voting day?
Tuesday was weirdly quiet in California. Usually we have a host of ballot initiatives, the evil intentions of which are only partially masked by their purposefully poor writing. Any other 'Murcans, except for Buckeyes, have a lot at stake on Tuesday?

Writing a book

Like what? Don't answer that. We're not supposed to talk about in-progress gunboats while you are playing them.

Well well well, Draugnar, what a conservative reaction from you.

But i do not always agree with the rule. I always find it very entertaining to look at games to see if i can understand the cheating accusation. And in case of very obvious cheating, i value the entertaining aspect more then the player protection aspect.

Another point, i think sharing very obvious cheating cases can have an 'educational' value for all the players, and nobody will talk about the hampered games the moment it is resolved, weeks after the games end.

Having said all this, i did not automaticaly classified this game as example of very obvious cheating, that would be an cheating accusation and against the rules :)

Share them after they are confirmed. Then it isn't an accusation and is, instead, an educational example. As far as obvious... The number of n00bs who jump on here from a gunboat and scream "they helped it other! They are obviously cheating!" because they are n00bs and don't understand the subtlties of gunboat is astounding sometimes. But they thought it was obvious. So who decides what is and isn't obvious. Obvious to one observer may be completely logical to another.

Finally, saying there is "something fishy" is a form of accusation. You are saying something isn't kosher with the game which means someone in the game is making it not kosher which, by extension, means someone is cheating. The saving grace was that you didn't mention which countries you suspect...
