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)?

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%

Lets start by shpwing examples of the worst RR among well known players. Are there are frequent webdip members with an RR below 50%. If so please step forward and lets discuss how we can ever get from 50% to 99%. Is it even possible?
Smokey Gem (168 D)
Mon 13 Nov UTC
Yes BB im on 89% . 100 moves out over over 5ooo NMRd most of those early on and in multile gaes at the same time and didnt really know how to get a sitter or pursued others for a pause. My fault 100% . Whack an elcrode on my brain stick me in a maize maze and watch me run..

There are many good systems suggested in the past, but the trouble is getting someone to implement them.

A good stop gap could be the mods manually resetting the RR of someone who requests it and hasn’t NMRed or CDed in 12 months.

I CD'd/resigned 18 times early on in this website, but since then I have NMRd on only 2 of 407 orders. I think only CDs & NMRs that occurred in the past year should count towards RR.

My RR is 73 and that is due to my high school deciding to block and unblock this website. Now that I’m in collage that shouldn’t be a problem, but I do wish that there was a way to prove that it should be raised. (Some of the nmr’s were my fault from when I was first learning to play, so I’m not all innocent.)
I'd suggest just playing a lot more games. The RR system needs some work, but lots of live games and 1v1s are a quick way to bring up the number of turns/games you've not NMRed/CDed.
MajorMitchell (986 D)

Whilst the RR system might not be perfect, it seems to work reasonably well. Some fine tuning might be OK. But I don't think that any special treatment/selective help to make improvements in particular individuals RR can be justified.
Everyone can't be in the top 10%tile.
Mine used to be high 90%, but it's taken a bit of a hammering because "heretical moi" gets so cranky in odd games over despicable betrayals or pestiferous interlopers that I do NMR, go CD and withdraw. As Yoyoyozo witnessed and Tom Bombarding found out, to assume that daffy old MajorMitchell will always conform to convention is a mistake.
I'm quite willing to bear the consequences for my choices and actions, and if a dent to my RR is a consequence then so be it. I certainly don't expect my RR to be artificially improved afterwards.
