Talking to other Players
Just wondering what other people think about how to communicate to other players. Some players go over the top and just write way to much, in my opinion. On the other hand there are people, like me, who keep it direct and to the point. Which way is best?

Biggest Pot Game in webDiplomacy HISTORY
Just as it says in the subject line. I've been tasked with helping set up the biggest point game in webDiplomacy History. Probably in part because it's way above my number of points so I'm beneath taking part myself.

Fiscal Conservatives should be against providing Disaster Relief to Texans
Its their fualt for living along a coast. We should shut down the government, and not spend taxpayer dollars helping rebuild homes for people who built in high risk areas. Disaster Relief shouldnt be political. So lets deny everyone aid, regardless of that states political leanings. PS I dont believe what Im.saying just fyi

Dayum. Areas getting 60" in Texas would be experiencing what would be, under prior rainfall distributions, no a once in a hundred year flood (Houston has had six of those since 1989 (oh, but the frequency of extreme events isn't increasin, oh no!)), not once in a thousand year event, but a once in a million year event. You read that right

Still thing climate change hasn't changed the rules of the game in a major way?
Octavious (1716 D)
28 Aug 17 UTC
A once in a million years event? If you believe that you'll believe anything.

What that tells me is that Texans have failed to model their flood risk correctly. It is surprising common, as flood risk is a tricky thing even in densely populated nations like the UK with relatively small catchments and a wealth of historic data. It's also worth noting that in the past 100 years Houston has expanded from the size of a small town to a huge city. The historic data that did exist would essentially be meaningless as the catchment characteristics have altered so significantly.

In short, your 100 year flood is plainly wrong. Trying to estimate a 1000 year flood is laughable. The fact that you're even considering a million year flood as a thing shows that your knowledge of flood risk is on a par with a kid suggesting that welding aeroplanes together might create an aircraft powerful enough to fly to the moon.

I'm sure you're a clever chap and all, but you're well outside of your area of expertise and you're talking utter tosh.
Ogion (3943 D)
28 Aug 17 UTC
Lol. Says the guys who doesn't understand how a distribution works or how these things are calculated.

You don't even know what the word "thousands year flood" means

Let me help you:
The peak flood each year defines a flood area. This varies from year to year. That variation defines a distribution of heights. We can describe that distribution and based on the mathematical characteristics of that distribution estimate what flood levels have a 999 out of a thousand under that level etc. the same principle works for rain data. So we can look at the distribution of rainfall dates and estimate that 999,999 out of a million rainfall event are under 60"

Yeah they got it wrong because the underlying distribution has changed. But of course, rather than look at the bloody obvious explanation, you bob and weave in an effort to deny reailty. Sure, putting up the thermostat and putting on a blanket might be why you're warmer, but you're right. It could be sunspots


You've just demonstrated your complete ignorance of scientific reasoning by the way


Not that science or facts matter to someone like you. It'd take work to understand and that isn't your thing

Well, you're the one trying to deny there's a threat to billions of people on earth, so one might well wonder whether you're really in a position to declare anyone else a wretch. I am sorry for that being over the top, but at the end of the day, denialism is threatening the lives of billions. I'm not sure it's a moral step up from white supremacism, frankly.

Oh, and the data had zero to do with flood maps. It had to do with rainfall totals. For which the NWS has had to add new colors to the maps.

That's what unprecendented means. And unprecedented maybe has to do with the massive changes to earth's climate scientists have been warning about to so little effect.

And yeah, Captain Brad shows how phenomenally racist he is. In fact, I'm the most privileged white guy you'll ever see. But very smart and very hard working. Son of a refugee, you know. The kind that don't take everything for granted.

It can't be more than a 500 year flood considering climate change accelerating frequency of extreme weather events.

Jeff, read the definition of a million year rainfall event. It is one so incredibly rare than 999,999 out of a million rainfall events would have less than 60" based on the observed distribution of rainfall events over the historical record.

In other words, no WAY this even it just "normal variation"
