Replacement player needed for public, non-anon World Diplomacy game
Game: http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=207427
India has disappeared and we need a replacement player. His position is still pretty good, so lots of potential there. If you are game, we'll try contacting a mod to swap you in so that there isn't another NMR.

What does Bhm. Sea stand for in the modern map version?
In the modern map, there's a territory named Bhm. Sea. What does that stand for? I always assumed Bohemian Sea though that doesn't exist (and the sea isn't close to Bohemia). Perhaps it is Bornholm Sea (after the Danish island in the Baltic in that area)?

Hello. If it is not too late, I'd like to sign up. My general GR is 31. 1v1 i'm 116th. Is it too late?
MadMarx (31659 D (G))

People are free to sign up as alternates, first come first served. Even if no alternates make it into the tournament, I can/will coordinate alternate games for an alternate champion, just don't expect it to happen for a month or so. It's looking likely that we can pull in at least 4 alternates giving us a total of 24 (and making a draw even less likely to advance to the second round), though feel free to list 12 alternate spots to see if we can get to 32 (on my phone so I'll let someone else copy/paste/format stuff, or I can do it tonight).

Don't forget to include the bit about *not* looking at *any* potential opponent's game history, including my game history (I plan to play a game here and there, as needed), and if you accidentally violate this "gentlemen's rule" for this casual tournament, simply report yourself to me with a PM, thanks.

We may actually have one or more people advance to the second round that lost their first round game, while one or more that drew their first round game will not advance. Each player that advances to the second round will play whichever great power they did not play in the first round, so we need an equal number of Austrias and Frances to advance. The "semifinals" will then be made up of players based on both their first and second round outcomes combined.

***** ANNOUNCEMENT *****

If you're in the Ryder Cup, you may look at the game history of the following people, but only while the game is being played, and only for Ryder Cup consideration:

1. Your opponent in the singles round.
2. Both of your opponents in the doubles round.
3. Only the captain that has final say in the team round.

***** ANNOUNCEMENT *****

And just to be clear, everyone is welcome to spectate any/all of the Ryder cup games, of course...

Identification Methods
For a story I'm writing, I need an adult who has lost his memory to not be easily identifiable. How do I make this feasible?
For instance, I expect the Dutch government to have the fingerprints of Dutch citizens. Do legal immigrants or people with a refugee status have their fingerprints taken as well? Would illegal immigrants or tourists from countries that don't take fingerprints make for a solid storyline? Are there other options?

Known World 901 - Playable?
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm fairly new around here. I'm looking through the variant maps, and I see one that looks like a lot of fun, the Known World 901 map. On the Variants page, it lists it as active, but when I go to create a new game I don't see it as an option to select.

An open discussion about elaborate ways to restore reliability rating
I was thinking how there are members on this site who ruined their Reliability early and can never restore it to the 90th %tile. What if we did a series of experiments on these people. Hook them up to machines. Or perhaps put them in a room full of rats and see if they survive. The goal being we develop a way that someone could go from a 13% RR to a mighty 78%
