When Thucydides left the site for a bit, he made an announcement on the forum and his mod powers were revoked. Someone suggested the idea of muting him to see what happened when he came back and his mod powers were restored. (You can't mute mods.) So, I did. I have now looked at his profile and discovered that he is now a mod again. However, I cannot unmute him.
I doubt many people will remember me, but I used to be quite a keen player on the site. I left almost a year ago now, but am back and determined to organize one final (and hopefully epic) game. Details inside.
Yes its a bit a tricky. There is no precise way of setting the iPad time. You just have to try to get it as close to the game clock as possible. You can see the real time remaining momentarily when you refresh to the board.
So if your clock is off, then the times it displays will be off. Ideally you want to have your computer synched up with a time server on the internet. But if that isn't possible with an iPad then you just have to do the best you can.
You can install an called Emerald Time which will tell you precisely how out of sync your iPad/iPhone is with the Network Time Protocol servers on the net. Currently my iPad is almost spot on (0.03 of a second off).
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?
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.
