WebDiplomacy and The Final Crusade? (Game Proposal/Invite)
I think it's safe to say one of our most discussed/popular/maddening discussion topics here on the threads has been religion--one vs. another, atheism vs. theism, discrepancies between definitions of those identities (see: SC and I having a near-Jewish Civil War) so...anyone up for a game? Represent your denomination/branch of agnosticism/branch of atheism, we'll chat...have some wine...last players standing "win" The Last Crusade...? ;)

Currently recruiting tournaments
Because there has been some confusion and befuddlement, here is the current status of 'new' tournaments on this site:
Yonni (208 D)

Spring GB tournament:

threadID=841508
Signup: http://tinyurl.com/signupSGT
TD: Geofram

Description:
It's the latest instalment of the successful GB tournaments. I think there are only a few remaining spots so act fast.



WebDip Ladder:

threadID=847019
Rules: http://tinyurl.com/WebDipLadderRules
Signup: http://tinyurl.com/WebDipLadderSignup
TD: Yebellz

Description:
"A perpetual series of tournaments (like the leagues).
Multiple tiers with promotion and relegation in between seasons.

Basic Idea: A spiritual successor (or alternative, if the leagues ever get back up and running) to the WebDip leagues.
The major differences are player anonymity and a heavier emphasis on top-level competition rather than fraternization.

General format: Players are grouped into tiers. Each season is a tournament where players predominantly play within their own tier. Between seasons, players are moved between tiers based on performance."



New unnamed tournament:

threadID=847019
Pre-registration and survey: http://tinyurl.com/New-WebDip-Trny
TD: Yonni

Description:

The tournament will be created based on the answers given in the survey. At the moment, one idea floating around is to create a 'triathlon' style tournament where players need to compete in full press, public press, and GB games.


WebDip League

threadID=???
Signup: ???
TD: Fortknox

Description:

The fabled WebDip League. It's coming...

Nice summary of the situation. By the way, I think that Draug and Ora are also helping organize the next league.

We may end up having a lot of simultaneous tournaments going, but I think that should be fine each serves its own particular niche and gives players options.

Lol Yonni - the Spring Gunboat Tournament signup has most definitely closed - there are no spots left.

And what about the recently-started World Cup Tournament?
Yonni (208 D)
31 Mar 12 UTC
The world cup tournament is already underway unless we're recruiting some subs. Hellalt, I difer to you - looking for recruits?
Sargmacher (0 D X)
31 Mar 12 UTC
Sorry - that's my mistake. I thought the inclusion of the SGT meant that you were including all tournaments currently running.
Yonni (208 D)

I could do that. Seeing as TGM isn't updating his site, it may be worthwhile to start compiling the tournaments again. I'll do it after the weekend when I've got something other than just my phone to type on.

winter GB is still going too. finals have just begun. Currently waiting for an unpause, I believe.
Sargmacher (0 D X)
31 Mar 12 UTC
And the Gunboat Challenge Series, an informal gunboat league: tinyurl.com/gunboatleague
Lando Calrissian (1 D (S))
31 Mar 12 UTC
And the Lando tournament. Although that just ended..... we may see a revival at some point.
Sargmacher (0 D X)
31 Mar 12 UTC
That was a good tournament.
Yonni (208 D)
31 Mar 12 UTC
I'll try compile past tournament and results. I'll check TGM's site but I might need some people to fill in the blanks.

NigeeBaby (2121 D (G))

Is there a Tournament of Tournaments, or a unification tournament of all the other tournaments?
Can we have a World Series like in baseball where only Americans can enter?
Lando Calrissian (1 D (S))
01 Apr 12 UTC
TGM used to run one like this back when he was active here.
Yonni (208 D)
03 Apr 12 UTC
I see summer, spring, and winter gunboat tournaments. Is there a fall one?
Yonni (208 D)
03 Apr 12 UTC
OK, here is a link to an editable website to keep tally of tournaments:
http://tinyurl.com/WebDipTournaments

I don't mean to detract from TGM's site but having a more modular site may be useful for us until he comes back from hiatus. There still are some blanks in it so if anyone has something to add, let me know.

If you're a TD and want access to the page, message me and I can send you a link.

Player kicked out?
Looks like a player in our game got kicked out and someone took their place. The game is here: http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=84494 The player in question is India, who was eighnjel or something like that, and is now timgard. India didn't log in all weekend but Argentina has never logged in and has not been kicked out. Is there any way to reverse this? Why did it happen? How do we replace Argentina?

How would you all like to be in on an experiment?
How about I mod the forum. Any hate, trolling, etc... I see I silence. If the op posts it again because I silenced the thread, I ban. Maybe then you guys will appreciate the freedom and stop trolling and crapping up the forum. Thoughts?

In Defense of mapleleaf, krellin, and All the Rest...
We've created them.
They have as much right to speak their mind and spew as much vitriol as I spew Shakespeare...the same way we've made me into the seeming embodiment of the long-winded pseudo-intellectual Ivory Tower elitist, we've created these trolls, too...you pay them heed, and you lend credence to their creed. Respond, mute them, ignore them...but they have their right to speak, too...

Mod-a-Day Program
After listening to your suggestions about self-moderation, we've decided to try something new. Basically, we will give a user with a reasonable record mod privileges for one day to help keep order in the forum. We hope this will prevent any one person from going crazy with power, as it will only be for 24 hours. If you're interested, please post here.

Azawad
Just curious if anyone here has any thought on the situation in northern Mali/Azawad. It seems extremely unlikely to me that 2,000 ECOWAS troops are going to be able to fight the Tuaregs unless the MNLA splits, and I haven't really heard anything indicating that that's going to happen. At the same time, all of this seems to be happening kind of quickly. Are they prepared to set up a government?

Have you ever made a horrible decision and not realized it until after you've done it?
Well I have. In fact, there are only two things in this life that I've done that were incredibly stupid. The first is not putting oil in my vehicle until the engine blew when I was a kid. The second was un-muting Krellin. Not sure why this guy hasn't been banned yet but, like the damage to my motor, ability to not hate idiots will never be fixed again.
