How to bet 0 not taking over CD
You make two accounts, after one is banned, you ask the moderator to still play in the game with the second, so in effect taking over cd from yourself, it is allowed to do it on this site - example as a france http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=196322

Clean wood energy
All this talk about clean coal. Why bother digging up energy when we have so much wood ABOVE ground! As a bonus, we get more farmland. Let's retrain coal miners to be lumberjacks!

Where is the Coke ad where...
I want to see a Coke ad where a Kendall Jenner look-a-like tries to stop a riot by presenting a can of Pepsi. After a dramatic pause in the melee, both sides ask her, "You got Coke?" [Then they resume fighting].

1901 Country Assignments
Does anybody else constantly get assigned the same country or countries? I've entered into maybe 15 games and every time but one, have been assigned either England, Germany, or Russia.

(Note: this is not a complaint--I'll never bemoan a free game of Diplomacy!!! Just curious :-)

It is randomized with a weighting to ensure you don't keep getting the same countries over time - however the weighting only starts to apply after you finish games.

I believe the weighing no longer exists and the country assignments are completely random.

Mercy is correct, it was removed a while ago.

Why was the weighting removed?

It was making the server too heavy.
I thought the weighting still applied for users who joined before June 2013? Judging by the almost equal pairaity of my country assignments, I'd be inclined to believe it.

There is a weighting, but it got broken by an update before I joined the site.

The real answer is complex, but essentially if you joined after 2013 you're not weighted, but the weightings of other users in the game still affect you.

This means if you're playing with users who all joined after mid 2013, country selection is entirely random.

I've never gotten around to removing the broken weighting. So country assignment is still broken.

For those users who do experience a weighting, the weighting applies each time you start a game.

But having said that, I think the strings of county assignment experienced by some players would still happen about as often if we had random country assignment.

For those playing along at home, the webdiplomacy todo list is viewable to all:

https://github.com/kestasjk/webDiplomacy/issues/245

This (along with the recent changes page found in the help file) show that the country selection hasn't changed.

There's also a link there to the gory details if anyone is interested.
I actually like the weighting. It gives me the chance to play each country about the same amount.
Thanks for explaining how it works, ATC.

A_Tin_Can: I'm a sucker for gory details, even if I can't do anything to actually fix the problem. The link you mention doesn't explain exactly what happened in 2013:

Game Start Date - any way to know?
I know you can see the date a game finished, but is there a way to look and see when it started? I am curious to see how long a game took to finish in real time.

I looked for this for a while, so I'm the dunce if someone immediately points this out...

The IRS employs regressive taxation for independent contractors and the self-employed

Two players from one IP?
Is it allowed to have two players playing from the same household - in different games? I know they cannot join games together, and that is fine with me, but can two players from the same household play different games?
