When Is The New Forum Going Live?
I had a quick look at the forum a while ago. It looked good to me. Any idea when it may go live? On a completely unrelated note - any chance we may turn SSL on for the site?

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%

Will they be anonymous games ? Doesn't MAGA stand for Make America Gay Arcadia ? Might I play in the one game that doesn't have Peregrine Falcon ? (He'll only steal Liverpool from me again if he gets the opportunity) Although if it comes down to a choice between playing in a game with PF or Capt Brad, then I'll put up with PF, but I won't play in a game with Capt Brad. Sorry for being picky, but it's an unavoidable matter of choice on my part.

So I understand that Gunboat games shouldn't be discussed in the forum, but if the purpose of these games is for players to improve, should commentary be allowed from people not in the games? Similar to SoW?
Yoyoyozo (211 D Mod)
12 Nov 17 UTC
I wouldn't mind open commentary. The rules require everyone in the game to consent to these stipulations though.
Durga (786 D)
12 Nov 17 UTC
No open commentary please. Also who joined the last game and not the first two?
MajorMitchell (991 D)
13 Nov 17 UTC
That was probably me, but I have, after being promoted by a PM from DO to join two other games.
MajorMitchell (991 D)
13 Nov 17 UTC
I wouldn't mind commentaries on the games, but clearly players (including myself) cannot post comments about the games. ( apart from me confirming that I had joined )
DO seems to be against it (which she has a veto on), but I wouldn't have an issue with commentary.

I'd be fine with open commentary but I suppose that's a no go. Once these are over maybe we can set up a gunboat peanut gallery sort of thing.

MajorMitchell (991 D)

Well I think that "Commentary threads" could be a way to improve the WebDiplomacy site. I suggested it in the How do we improve WebDiplomacy thread.
There are some cracking good games played, especially between the "top gun players" & Commentary threads would encourage more spectators.
My idea was that when a player sets up a game they could start a commentary thread for the game.
I think that there should be some basic rules for Commentators, such as no offensive language, but perhaps a limit to discussing what might occur next, so no discussion of possible specific moves by individual players as an example.
MajorMitchell (991 D)
13 Nov 17 UTC
So I was suggesting that discussion is more about what has occurred in the games as they progress, with discussion about what might occur "next" being limited to generalised speculation rather than suggestions of, for example, a set of tactical moves to achieve a strategic plan.. So a speculation on a strategy, but not about the tactical "nitty gritty"
