Re: Bots are broken tonight

Ah great news, glad to hear it’s at least an improvement. Interested to hear if you think it’s definitely behaving differently or not over time, if so I can try to look into what I might be doing different. Interesting/concerning to hear it’s faster too.. I was not expecting that, I can’t think why ...

Re: Bots are broken tonight

Tried my luck running a searchbot in a 7 player game while running the FvA bot but no it needs more memory than I've got available, need to look at the options

Re: Bots are broken tonight

Yup, so far so good! Also, thank you for your work on making bots that play pretty well. Super fun and helpful to be able to play many, many rounds of Dip. (Looking forward to playing against Cicero when that finally happens. Don't discount a paid edition of WebDip -- it'll be worth it!) Yeah I rea...

Re: Austria vs Bots

#1 development flaw with the bots is designers programming Italy to attack Austria in extremely unrealistic percentage of games. Zero way the bots have ‘learned this’ as no real Italy diplomacy player plays like that…. Yep when the FAIR research ended unfortunately so did the bots. We were a bit sp...

Yeah some weird firewall issue, but once it starts it's okay so the bots are now running again. Looks like they're catching up now

Thanks; we had to update the server and the docker bot container can't connect out, trying to resolve it now

Re: Has Diplomacy activity come down in last 5 years ?

@Yonni What do you think if the existing sites would be technically able to interoperate? So that everybody can play with the user interface they prefer. Just thinking loud ofc. With the API allowing almost all operations except user creation/updates, game creation, game joining, and moderator func...

Discord has updated its bot policy to only allow slash commands iirc, which means a lot of older bots have broken. This is probably the same, unfortunately.
Damn .. note to self, don't write anything for the Discord platform :|

Re: notifications?

I have actually noticed there's a service webpushr that apparently works with Safari and seems straightforward to set up, but it would be good for Apple to get with the program and get the standard working so it works with iPhones too. Actually I just googled it and apparently it is working since iO...

Re: EasyCaptcha Image Doesn't Load

Hey, it does seem to be working okay for me even if I leave it for a long time, but frankly the captcha gives us enough trouble that I'm planning to replace it with recaptcha.

Re: New user question

If you're wondering about multi accounting etc you definitely need to declare that these accounts are the same person. Go to the profile of each account and go to the relationship area and create a relationship with each of the 17 users. Also be sure to make this very clear in the game you've set up...

Re: Reliability ratings and locking changes

You could do a lot of things.. I wanted to preserve the system jmo put in place as it seemed to be working well. The current system adds some forgiveness for consecutive turns, lets mods forgive turns, differentiates between live games and non-live, etc. I’m not saying you couldn’t make something li...

Curious, was there ever a series of games run (behind the scenes) where the old Fairbot played itself in France vs. Austria?
I wouldn’t be surprised if these bots have more experience playing Diplomacy against each other than all humans playing Diplomacy put together

Re: Reliability ratings and locking changes

How long does it take for base rate improvements to be reflected in the reliability rating? My base rate has been increasing, and the calculation implies that my reliability rating should be increasing as a result, but it's still stuck at its low point. Is this intentional? Right now the math on my...

Re: Reliability ratings and locking changes

While we're on the subject of ratings, my ghost rating seems to have gone down in the last two years, despite me not having played a single game. Is there perhaps something wrong with the calculation? Hmm, there may well be, I've never looked into how GRs are calculated. Definitely it could be some...

Re: AI performance

Yep well spotted. With FB wrapping things up unfortunately they stopped hosting the bots. I'm not sure exactly what happened, whether they cut them off or our new proxy interfered somehow, or the site traffic increased, but the bots shut down in sets. At the same time the old MILA bots that the orig...

Re: Games not processing

FYI I’ve disabled the bot alerts and added a service statuscake integrates with called Pushover which acts as an iOS app that is supposed to ignore everything and send critical notifications until they’re acknowledged. I’ll set a timer to go off tomorrow morning to check that it’s working
