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%

Come one! Come all! Sunny California beckons you all into its warm embrace. Stab your friends in the back, frolic in the sunshine, and meet Siobhan's spawn (also known as future Diplomacy World Champion, you heard it here first!).

3 nail biting rounds of Diplomacy in the heart of Downtown San Jose! April Fools Day weekend, 2 rounds Saturday and 1 round on Sunday. Friday night shenanigans will be had! Details to come on that.

If you have any questions, please email any and all to whipping@bayareadiplomacy.org.

The rounds:
Round 1 - 9:00am Saturday, March 31
Round 2 - 6:00pm Saturday, March 31
Round 3 - 9:00am Sunday, April 1 (this round will end at a predetermined time between 1:30 and 3:00pm)

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for each round will begin 30 minutes before the start times above.

Scoring System: Sum of Squares

After Feb 28/at the door: $50
Students: $25/$35 (Before/After Feb 28)

Message whipping@bayareadiplomacy.org for PayPal information.

If registration costs are a significant deterrent, please message whipping@bayareadiplomacy.org to discuss arrangements.

Hotel room block information will be posted soon (as soon as I get the necessary links/codes from the venue!)

As for travel... SJC is your best bet on airports, but transport to/from SFO and OAK can be arranged as well. For those in the Bay, Caltrain and Amtrak are great options and drop off a half mile from the venue at Diridon station.
