Re: Last seen functions in anon games

I agree with the concerns. I imagine that this was a mistake on the part of a developer?

Re: 20 Questions - Round 19

Is it Robert the Bruce? As a Scot, I fully approve of this question! (but why Robert the Bruce???) He's my great great great (and so on and so forth) grandfather, and after discussions back in the early games that he's the chap I'd have picked if I hadn't already mentioned him I've become paranoid ...

Are this person's murderous tendancies related to his status as an outlaw or involvement with organized crime?

Re: 20 Questions - Round 13

Maybe Robert the Bruce is a Well known character in the english history, but for example in Hungary It would be hard to find 10 people on the street knowing him. )(But on which street? Where I thrown out the dart to, of course :) So of course he can't be Robert The Bruce. It is the question master ...

Re: Revenge vs Draw

I am new to online Diplomacy, but not new to Diplomacy in general. I am currently in an anonymous game where 2 players stabbed me, one by going all-in against me, which left their rear totally exposed. Another power may solo due to bad tactics by a third player and the one player going all-in again...

Re: User relationship management

I tried using this feature to disclose that I knew userID=19589 in school, but got this error:
Error triggered: Unknown column 'gameId' in 'field list'.
I was just trying to test the feature (the relationship is more than a decade old and I have lost touch with this person).

Re: Accusation of Cheating

The Forum Rules are also very clear on both questions: 5. Do not break press rules Because press in gunboat games, rulebook press games, and public press games is restricted, discussing them on the forum while they are being played can jeopardise the fairness of the game and, if done by a player in ...

Re: Accusation of Cheating

For the full benefit of onlookers, there is a site rule against this: Site Rule #5: Do not use the software or moderators as a diplomacy tactic Lying is fine in Diplomacy except when it gives mods/admins unnecessary work to do! Falsely accusing someone of being a multi-accounter/meta-gaming to rall...

Re: What's the deal with Austria?

I'm sure this question has been asked a million times since the games inception, but how the hell do you play Austria? 1. It's in a geographically awkward region, being a direct roadblock to Turkish expansion. Russia would have to awkwardly pivot around. Italy would have an easier time attacking Au...

Re: Rulebook Press

If you're pointing to the rulebook as a source of truth, it's worth noting that discussion is not explicitly forbidden in the order writing phase, only in retreats and adjustments. I thought that you had me there for a second, but the rules actually do explicitly forbid discussion during the order ...

Re: Rulebook Press

Remembering that, during the Diplomacy phase in FTF Dip, you have to submit your orders is made more difficult by experienced players tying you down in lengthy conversations so that you run out of time. While this is probably true in most face-to-face games, I think that it is actually against the ...

Re: Rulebook Press

Can anyone explain to me why Rulebook Press isn't the default system here on WebDip (and perhaps other online hosts too)? I mean, maybe it wouldn't make games that much shorter (although it would make them somewhat shorter). I just wonder why the online game decided to go a different way from the i...

Re: Anybody up for a 1900 game?

Seriously, though, 1900 is an amazing variant that I've wanted to try for maybe a decade or so. It was designed to subtly improve Diplomacy in such away that increased historical accuracy, eliminated stalemate lines, expanded the map, forced players to interact from the start of the game and mainta...
