Erector sets
How many Webdippers remember Erector sets? Or for that matter, Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys? Of course, I expect the usual 90% comedy answers, the real reason I ask.

Reactors
Are there any other people who work on reactors here? I do both American Civil War and WWII Reactor repairs and would like to know if there are any others out there like me.

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?

Thanks! Don't want to be banned accidentally.

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.

Huh, I always figured it was against the rules. Seemed more pure to have to work with only what you can convince another player of.

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.

@Carebear - Richard Sharp was also firmly in favour of the Hedgehog, so I think it's safe to assume some of his opinions are dated :)

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 (1378 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.

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?
