Left my oven on all night
Set at 415 after cooking a pizza. I forgot to shut it off. It was on nearly 20 hours. I feel lucky I didnt burn my house down.

NHL sucks
I honestly challenge anyone who obviously knows nothing about hockey to keep high morale when the refs are literally maliciously trying to throw the game. I've never seen worse reffing in a series, and anyone who doesn't realize these are humans that actually get effected when the ref delibrately tries to blow a series against your team, should realize that it makes your team feel like they are skating though glue.

How can I become a crappier person
I have recently been told that I am funny, kinda weird, a stalker, spammy, and an artistic twat. Do you fellows at WebDiplomacy observe these traits about me? How can I become the worst me possible? What tips and advice can you offer? How can I become a shit human? This is a serious thread and I want to become even worse than I am.

You discover a map to buried treasure
There is a catch. While visiting neighors you find the map in the hands of their infant son. The treasure is likely real as youd heard of the map and its fabled promise. The problem is not just that a child is holding the map- its that the family desperately would need the treasure to pay off their debts or they may end up on the streets starving. However you also know the babys mother and father gamble, drink and are rather unsavory. What do you do?

Yea is there some reason why you are checking the poll data but refuse to just hit ctrl-c.

You are a special kind of annoying sometines chaqa. Im not your servant. If you care about the data post it. Its been posted here, discord and God qt so if youre so incompetant you can go back two damn pages Im pretty sure you arent fit to play mafia.
Chaqa (3119 D (B))
Wed 19 Apr UTC
You completely misread my post. I was saying that before drawing conclusions, you should have posted the poll where the mafia games are actually played (the forum) instead of Discord. The poll results have shifted since you proclaimed that people want mafia all day every day:

Are breaks in between mafia games on webdiplomacy too long?
Yes we need games to begin more rapidly 39%
No, games are too frequent 42%
I dont care 16%
The current system is perfect 3%
Total votes: 31

Oh look, Ctrl+C.

Good to see there's no pressure on voting a certain way. *rolls eyes*.

As I said before - the point was never that the majority of people wanted less mafia (though apparently that might actually be the case), but that if even a significant minority are getting fatigued then of course you're going to have people play less/stop playing at all, and thus struggle to fill games. You only have to look at the list of former regulars who are still around on the site but now play rarely/not at all to see that that's very plausible a case.
brainbomb (324 D)
Wed 19 Apr UTC
Thats all great and all but one side of the debate gets their way and the players who arent fatigued are stuck waiting around for fatigued people to recover so really the current systen is catering only to the people who want 30-35 day breaks in between games when simply players who dont wanna play as often can take breaks and game sizes can be adjusted easily down to 17. The games will go faster and if ppl are truly so worn out they wont feel as pressured to sign up for fear of waiting 60 days to play

As in the more games there are the less fatigue because taking a game off is not as huge of a recess anymore.

There's Discord, or other websites, for the people that want constant Mafia. This is a Diplomacy site, after all, and that's the main reason why the vast majority of people come here...
DemonOverlord (476 D)
Wed 19 Apr UTC
We're a community within it that is playing mafia. Diplomacy or the objective of this website has nothing to do with this convo. We should be having smaller games anyway.
brainbomb (324 D)
Wed 19 Apr UTC
If webdiplomacy.net is proud to have a mafia community and it adds something fun to the forum then the frequency of games whether its 15 day breaks between games or 21 day breaks seems rather trivial. If the games are reasonably sized and last under 3 weeks theres no reason for there to be 30+ day gaps between. It is a great aspect of this website that keeps me coming here happily everyday.

I dont think 15 days or 21 day breaks is a break which will ruin the forum or cause fatigue. What WILL cause fatigue is 4 - 5 week long games with huge player lists but only 87 pages of content. Its kind of absurd right?

Brain, people calling you out for bad surveying techniques that they teach in an AP Stats class in high school shouldn't get you so riled up. Both darg and I are happy to take public opinion into account, as is the council, but we have schedules too. Going off on a diatribe every time someone wants to slow down is not helping anything. Put up the survey, make it non-anonymous, post a link on the forum, and give it some time.

Of course, April 24 is in what, five days? It is really not feasible to me to start a game from scratch within the next five days. If we do it, it will be a rush, to say the least. If we don't, then we wait. There aren't tons of options, and doing a survey properly takes a bit of time, so the results of your survey, however they turn out, won't be that relevant before this coming game.

M19 was April 2016. That means were playing 10 games per year. Is that too many? Maybe thats a better way to ask the question. Discuss
Chaqa (3119 D (B))
Wed 19 Apr UTC
M19 was May 2016, but more or less the same.

I think that's an OK number. It depends on the size/how long they go.

With a Discord game ongoing and meme's new Survivor game coming up, we're gonna push back this mafia game, tentatively to late May. The exact date is yet to be determined and probably depends on when these events end and how quickly we can get going. If there is high demand, we can increase the number of players in the setup. We'll give more details when that time comes.

If you're looking forward to mafia, try Survivor. It's a lot of fun.

Diplomacy: Is Germany Too Weak?
I noticed that Germany is considerably weaker in Diplomacy than it's historical counterpart. In game, Germany can very easily be knocked out by England and France. However, historically Germany was able to fight competently on three separate fronts. Does anybody feel that Germany is a little misrepresented in game?

Coup in North Korea
I was trying to think why Trump would engage in such brinksmanship with North Korea. Sure, it could be just more inexperience, etc, but then I was thinking that maybe the goal is to scare the generals there so much that someone bumps off the Great Leader. Then I started thinking, that's probably why he rubbed out his half-brother recently.
