Another Space Race--to Mars?
So, I was thinking, the one nice thing about the Cold War was that NASA got tons of money to just be awesome. People were excited about science and we developed a lot of cool technology. Why can't we have another Space Race? Surely China or India would be up for the challenge.

Moderators ATTENTION
I was wondering - without insisting on an immediate verdict - whether my email & thread about the sending of screenshots had been taken into consideration? If it is, I'll shut up again, just curious whether it is in the pipeline.

Mod Language and the F-Word
Topic for discussion--Since we can't mute the moderators, what about instituting a policy that mods at least try to avoid using objectionable language, starting with the F-word?

Because there are those who complain about a lack of Diplomacy Topics
One of the weakest parts of my game is that I don't go to other players with plans, but rather listen to plans, and adapt my strategy. Do you prefer to engage first, or listen to others? And how would you suggest I improve upon actively engaging with other players with ideas rather than waiting for them to come to me?

Muting is a curious feature
Apparently, you cannot mute a banned player. I discovered this when I tried muting bullshiot threads to make scouring the forums for an old thread easier. Curious indeed. By one's banning, they become like the mods: immutable.

We're almost at 28 so I think we should maybe wait until we get there instead of cutting people who are interested in playing.

So, that's 3 spots still open. Any interest anyone?

I'm thinking we'll have 420/n scoring system. 48hr for pp, 36hr for gb and fp.
There will be 6 games that will start in groups of 2 spaced apart by a month.

1. PP/FP
2. FP/GB
3. PP/GB

Using the diplomacy tournament software I can optimize it so that nobody plays the same power twice and playing the same player multiple times is minimized (although obviously not unavoidable).

I've never run a tournament before so maybe a mod can let me know what the preferred way to receive country assignments is. I'm thinking that I'll enter the names into the software as people's userIDs. That way I can create the heats without seeing what country everyone is assigned as. In Excel, I can get the IDs to show each person's user name but to not show country assignments so I can at least know who should be playing in each game. If I can just give the mods the userIDs and country assignments for each game, that'd be perfect.

Seems like a bit of a roundabout way of doing things so, if anyone has a better idea, let me know.

@ Yonni - the way this is setting up is starting to sound like the Masters. You want my spreadsheet for that layout, because its exactly as you describe it. I can even explain the mod thing too.
Yonni (83 D)
10 Apr 12 UTC
Sure, I'd be more than happy to take a look at it and see if it'll work.
The Masters is for 49 players though, right? And 7 games each?
dubmdell (556 D)

Yonni, if you need a number of players divisible by 7, you can drop me from the list. Otherwise, I look forward to this.
Yonni (83 D)
10 Apr 12 UTC
dubmdell, that shouldn't be necessary. We're already at 26 including coldsoup and I'm sure we can convince goldfinger to play if we're won by one (right?).

Worst comes worst, I'll just make a multi and fill the last couple spots.

Here's what I need from everyone....

________________________________________________

If you are the first name listed in the game you are responsible for creating the game AND inviting everyone else to it.

When you create a game, please set the join length and phase length to TEN DAY PHASES. Then, give me the game link and I will ask the mods to shuffle the countries and set the phase length.

Also, please make the game names something logical so we can keep track easier. Sorry if you're responsible for making several games but it's sorted by userID. You can defer to someone else, I don't really care as long as it gets done.

We are only creating heats one and two now. Heat one is full press and heat two is public press.

Probably. Also put in all the criteria for each parameter (anon, cost, etc...)
You probably also want to have each 'game starter' to PM you the game link and pass so you have a record of it.
