2-Way Draws... 17-17. No WIn. _ Two 'friends' get together & sweep the board.
They don't win, they won't let you survive: just a few points more.
A stalemate line unreached... just a Draw. -- Make any sense ?

Even if charges aren't brought against any players...wow, now they need lawyers? More and more, the Raiders are seriously in jeopardy of losing that "dirtiest team" mantle, fair or not, to the Saints...that SB win isn't looking as clean anymore (which is a shame, to be fair...)

Some thoughts on potential improvements
Maybe this just shows how wildly naive i am, but i feel like as wonderful as the site is, there are some features that could make it even more wonderful.

For instance, on vdip they rolled out a feature a while ago that puts a notification on your bar when you have an unread pm. Is there a reason we don't do that here?

The original reason was that it would place too much demand on the old server. Although, now that we have the new server, it may be possible.
Ah, i hadn't thought about server demands. i don't really know anything about that, so this is me smiling blankly and nodding ; )

The other thing, is with the forum, how come we just have the one long list of threads? There are lots of free forum hosting places where you can get (from what i recall) unlimited space if you allow a banner add, or that only cost a few dollars to get no adds. Would it be much more space to have the organization for the forum than it is to just have things as they are, or is it just that we like it how things are?

There are several reasons for initially having the simple forum:

1) Kestas wanted to keep things simple
2) It's hard to integrate most forums into a sight. For instance, you would need to log into the forum *and* log into the site separately, which would really split the site.

Personally, I like this style. It keeps things fresh and moving and encourages people to make posts that prompt discussion, otherwise they die.

*into a *site*...
that's fair, but what happens with threads where a few people are into the thread, but they only log on at certain hours? The conversation, which might be a very worthy one, is lost because by the time the next poster is on, the thread has vanished.

So you just check the next page or two after logging on. Has happened to me a few times.
abgemacht (677 D (G))

Threads don't vanish. They just move to the next page.

You can bump back threads from 5(?) pages back. we could always increase that number if it became an issue.
Ah, that makes sense. I guess with the really worthwhile threads people will care enough to do that. Sometimes it just seems like the 'post last to win' threads end up dominating the forum
One thing i was wondering, the stars are threads you have posted in right?
would there be any way to set a filter or something so that you could have an option to put the active starred threads as having priority over the active non starred?

That would be nice.

What I really want is to be able to pin threads and games to your homepage so you can easily find them.
Oooooooh, i change my mind, i want /that/

PM the gameID=xxx or threadID=xxx link to a banned or inactive account.

Falls off after enough game phase updates, but you can also check the notices page to see a longer history.
i seem to remember there being osme way to leave notes to yourself isn't there?
abgemacht (677 D (G))

You can leave yourself ingame notes by changing the message url to your country.
@AM:Sometimes it just seems like the 'post last to win' threads end up dominating the forum...
Mute the "post last to win" and other uninteresting threads, then you should see more older but interesting threads.

Speaking of the sad state of science
A former researcher at Amgen Inc has found that many basic studies on cancer -- a high proportion of them from university labs -- are unreliable. C. Glenn Begley identified 53 "landmark" publications -- papers in top journals, from reputable labs -- for his team to reproduce. 47 were frauds.

Question/debate
At what point does it become bad form to not draw or cancel because of NMRs/CDs? It seems like it is almost inevitable to have at least one cd in live games, but is it bad to profit because of that and push on for a solo despite all the other players voting for a draw/cancel?

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...? ;)

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 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?

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.
