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 :-)

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...

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.

It's super easy. Using the command prompt you can change any text on screen to anything you want and then screenshot. It's actually very easy, and something I've done to lesser players in the past.

Personally I see players using screenshots as an open invitation to attack them. Any alliance becomes void and my top game priority changes to seeing them defeated by any means necessary.

I really dislike the screenshot tactic :).

I sent a screenshot once to try and convince another player I wasn't lying to them. It didn't work, if you have to get to that point something in your credibility and rapport building has already broken down.

It's a slippery slope. Moment a player starts sending me screenshots of conversations he's had with others I start questioning if he's sending me conversations to them and instantly begin to carefully choose my words with them. And yes, I also question the validity as others have mentioned it's extremely easy to forge.

Also, list of terrible things to do in Diplomacy:

1. Hedgehog
2. Try to 2-way draw with Ghug
3. Send screenshots to other players while a thread about faking screenshots is at the top of the forum.

No, faked transcripts seem entirely within bounds, in part because FtF is known for not having particular bounds.

The only think I can think of that's out of bounds for me is taking advantage of CDs, especially multiple CDs, but that's more to do with online play than Diplomacy itself.
I think faked screenshots are legal, but I would immediately try to eliminate the purveyor.

I think threats of bodily harm or leaked private content are out of bounds. Really, anything related to real life.

i agree entirely
Generally when I get screenshots, I send them around to see how people react to it. It almost never turns out well for the person who took the screenshot.
Dejan0707 (1504 D)

If you are in position that you have to send screenshots to prove your point than you are doing something very wrong.

Pretty much like you are on your first date with some cute girl and you show her the letter of your ex in which she is telling how nice and sweet you are.
