If your post relates to a particular game please include the URL or ID#
of the game.
If you are posting a feature request please check that it isn't mentioned in the todo list.
If you are posting a question please check the FAQ before posting.
If your message is long you may need to write a summary message, and add the full message as a reply.
We seen the stats before about the average number of messages per game. That is one way of looking at it. But some people post lots of short messages, while others write essays. How much do you really write?
Rarely self-moderation isn't enough; e.g. threads which share information on a private / anonymous / gunboat game, or threads about suspected multi-accounters / meta-gamers / bugs.
These have a negative impact on games which self-moderation can't prevent, so the mod team can lock/silence these threads:
Silences can apply to a user or a thread. The details can be viewed on the forum page, when the "New thread" button is pressed. Thread silences last indefinitely, but user silences expire after a brief cool-off period. Silenced threads / users can still be viewed, however no more messages may be posted. Silenced users can still play in games; it affects the forum only.
Remember that mods will only silence users / threads when there has been a clear rule violation, as a last resort. If it's a first time mistake, and you inform the mods that you won't repeat it, they will probably be happy to reduce your cool-off period!
Don't create new accounts to work around user silences, or post threads to continue on from ones which have been silenced! This may result in bans etc, which would be worse than simply keeping off the forum for a few days.
Thanks for helping keep the forum from negatively impacting peoples' games!
People of webDiplomacy: What is your MBTI Personality Type/Socionics type?
I'm off today and thinking about the subject because my girlfriend and I talk about this quite a lot, especially in regard to other people, and I've a feeling the implications of it translate well in predicting Diplomacy behavior. So what are you?
I'll visit the church with his body tomorrow so feel free to join. Regard this thread as a counterbalance to the thread about Kim Jong-Il. If one of the greatest assholes gets his own thread, the greatest pussy should get it as well.
Any graduate student/professor of Psychology on this site?
I am interested in doing a correlational study concerning the game of Diplomacy and its players. For starter, I want to correlate myers-briggs/keirsey personalities and general intelligence with game performance, chat frequency, and country preference. If you are interested, please post here or PM me if you are concerned with your RL identity (preferred).
In 1927, the corrupt politicians of Washington state created a monopoly of ferry rights on Lake Chelan to a company owned by cronies. Today a pair of brothers have a case challenging this monopoly and Will writes brilliantly about it. If you European and not American don't waste your time.
1) Please join me in congratulating FK on his promotion to Admin 2) I have drafted a set of guidelines containing every possible scenario I could think of. It is being reviewed by the rest of the mod team now. Although Mods will still have autonomy, it will serve as an official reference for us, so we can do a better job at making consistent decisions.
The website told me to write a four-line summary because my post was too big :oops: I'm organizing a Face-to-Face game in New York City, with the hopes to eventually create a "proper" F2F community! Pitch follows.
I want to host a game at my home with my friends, showing webdiplomacy map on TV screen and using it as move validator. Is there a way to enter orders for all of my friends, using only one user? Some sort of 'game super-user'?
