Re: Error: Request failed

Thanks for reporting that; I added a new JavaScript library that gives some new capabilities but it conflicts with another JavaScript library, and the update to it which resolves the conflict breaks the way that order submission works.. Trying to figure out a solution now but it should be reverted a...

So something like this probably the most realistic way of us adding notifications in a sustainable way, I’ll have a play with this when I get a chance.

Re: Can't see chat history in new beta UI

Sorry, a couple of teething issues; behind the scenes we’re actually using a totally new piece of tech for realtime updates so there have been a couple of snags.

It’ll be worth it once it’s stable; let me know if it’s not resolved now.

Re: Any plans on making a publicly available API?

If you're just doing regular user activities and want to make client apps etc feel free to use cookie authentication, but please don't do any actual bot order submission etc as we want to know which users are bots and which aren't.

Sound like an interesting project, keep us posted.

Re: Beta map

Hi, I'm new here and I don't know if this has been discussed, but is there any chance that the other maps (Modern, World, Med, American Empire etc.) can also be switched to the Beta style map? I find the Beta map much clearer and much easier to enter orders. Would be great of all variants had a Bet...

Re: User account phone SMS linking

I am a new user (on my third game). I agree completely that email should continue as the main token. I would almost certainly decline to join a site that requires my Phone # as a condition of membership. That said, I am enjoying playing the game again (after many many years) and now that I am more ...

Re: User account phone SMS linking

I'd shy away from using SMS as the main token... not sure if its just me but when I stumble on a new site I'm usually fine giving my email as a login but my phone number is a step too far. If its a place I trust I'll enable 2FA but if I have to make that call while setting up my account on a fairly...

Yep sorry it’s fixed, didn’t see this thread thanks for pointing it out. Note it had been fixed I believe a day or so ago, it’ll be in the GitHub logs if you want to check exactly. I was notified previously, but do appreciate you saying you noticed it also. I’m interested whether people think perhap...

Re: New Board UI testing

Good feedback all. Move colors are a must I think, an option to display a faded view of the orders from the past turn, and a way to enable classic colors / icons. The Beta is just great. It works so much better for live games. It would be nice to have a better reminder that you have orders due. We'r...

User account phone SMS linking

Hi, A big focus right now is making the site less effort to moderate and as part of that we're trying to make it less effort to keep cheaters out and more effort for them to come back. We've got 3rd party social media authentication, user suspicion reporting and a couple of other improvements in the...

Re: Clans and groups

Interesting idea, definitely would fit in neatly. Only problem is the chat at the bottom of a group page is just one thread, but that probably wouldn't be good enough for a sub-community, we'd need to add in multiple threads. I don't think that'd be much trouble though

Re: User relationship management

Someone might have lodged that they're suspicious of you and another player. If there's nothing in it select "Deny" from the dropdown and submit it, and maybe leave a comment refuting it in case the mods look at it. FYI I've added country based suspicion lodging for anonymous games: b.png a.png I th...

Re: What is the best country in bot games?

That is some very interesting data, thank you. I don't have any comparable data, I haven't played nearly enough bot games. But your post made me want to share an anecdote on a game I played recently. I was Italy. By the end of 1906, I had lost all my home centers and was down to 2 units and 2 SCs. ...
