Re: New Board UI testing

As others have said though I expect it's about what you're used to, since when people who only use other sites always dilike our colors etc. ^^^^^ This. When I first saw the new UI, I didn't like it that much, for the reasons others have given: similar colors, colors too bland, weird icons. After p...

Re: play.webdiplomacy.net

Good feedback thanks ATC, can I get the game ID and turn etc for that order that didn't go through? If you have trouble selecting something by clicking/pressing it I find zooming into the map with the scroll wheel / pinching your screen makes it a lot easier to select things. If you click on the ico...

Ever since I was testing the new UI by playing against the bots and finding it to be an actually surprisingly fun user experience, which works really well on mobile/tablet, I wanted to make it so anyone can just click a link and be playing in 5 seconds, no account required. So here it is: https://pl...

Re: Bot game not cancelling even though all the bots are voting Cancel

The system now handles votes differently to make player votes count and ignore bot votes, and doesn't factor bot games into reliability ratings. Let me know if you have any issues

Re: User relationship management

Just wondering where this is up to? I am in an anonymous press game where I have a mild-medium strength suspicion of metagaming/cheating. Nothing that I would bother emailing the mods with (and certainly not in global) but I would love to lodge a suspicion. More just for the experience TBH. I haven...

Re: Profile page error

Hi all, Yep we're aware of this, I tried to sneak in a change in the last dev cycle and it didn't work out, I'll fix it up when the next cycle rolls around in a week or two.

Re: New Board UI testing

Thanks for the feedback all, and apologies for the lockups over the last 24 hours, we're trying to gently roll out the beta board to the live site for better testing, we'll address these various concerns but I think we'll be able to manage them all.

Re: New Board UI testing

No worries; the color scheme and icons won't be much trouble to change. As others have said though I expect it's about what you're used to, since when people who only use other sites always dilike our colors etc.

Re: New Board UI testing

Any images of this? I would love to see the new UI. Here's one: https://webdiplomacy.net/doc/webDipUI2.png I'm interested in thoughts on the colors of uncapturable territories. I think the orange blue center should be black since it can't be navidated, and I think the area outside of the main map I...

Re: New Board UI testing

Thanks that worked, basically just had to work around to home page and forum. Can the country colors be fixed? Nah they're good, they're practically the same, never really liked German brown anyway. Got to admit, as someone who never really used backstabbr it was a bit daunting with all the arrows ...

Re: New Board UI testing

Does this work on bot games? Yep, I've been giving it a run on that, really good experience actually in my opinion, it's a lot more enjoyable just clicking around than looking up, looking down, checking the name, etc. The subtle things like highlighting of certain buttons, flashing of warnings, and...

Re: Any plans on making a publicly available API?

Side node: what are you using to do web scraping? You shouldn't be hitting performance issues because of scraping. The time to make the http call should be by far the biggest cost, and for a bot that fires every few minutes, an API and scraper should be similarly performant. Of course, not scraping...

Re: Any plans on making a publicly available API?

I recently got into Diplomacy and it has been a blast, as my excitement for the game grew, the more the urge to create some rudimentary commands to my discord bot grew. I searched for an API but could not find one so I decided to just web scrape which works but is quite annoying and brings overall ...

New Board UI testing

So as mentioned previously Codazen and FAIR have been working on a new, more modern UI for us to help support the AI bot development business, and I think it's looking very good. It's still a couple of weeks from the planned launch, but we've now got the first functional version deployed to the stag...

Re: User relationship management

Thanks Kestasjk. Some thoughts: (1) This is a tool I have to now use and put my hands up for not using when it became clear I had 1 relationship I should have flagged. Am a committed player of several years and am very happy to be a case study/test case for whatever makes things better for the site...
