Re: What Do Dip Players Do in Real Life?

I started out as an aerospace engineer, turned to Quality Food Assurance for Pillsbury. I now own a small bakery in a resort community to be near my grandchildren.
So, I decided to buy my retirement house first.

Re: Taking over a disorder

I have taken over some disorders, but my profile does not record them as having been taken over.
Is that because I was defeated in the game ?

Re: An Important Thyng

Interesting also my understanding is that in old English there were no silent letters.
So you would have pronounced the letter E in in lifE
the letter K and E in KnifE.

Knight and and Night would have sounded completely different, hence their spellings to this day.

Re: Taking over a disorder

Ok
Thanx
I just wanted to be clear.
I see that it can be frustrating to have a game stall, so I do not have a problem helping out.
I guess just call unit busters and I will help out.

Taking over a disorder

I am wondering how taking over disorders works against one's rating. For instance, I took over two disorders to help the games move forward. IE, I disbanded the last unit for the defeat of the disordered country. I see that I am listed as defeated, do I also have a defeat credited to me as well even...

Re: Pausing games / adding a recess

I did not understand this,
I had a family emergency and did not know that we could request a game recess.
Just email webdipmod@gmail.com and explain.
