Re: Dealing with the Metagame

< Are ghost ratings an alternative to these scoring systems, or is that more of an Elo thing that isn't compatible with our points system? I have no idea. But you know what could be great, having the option to set a minimum ghost rating to join a game. Not sure how easy to implement that would be t...

Re: External account / external authentication linking

Once I've linked my account, when I click logout I get an exception bug (though it does log me out after). I am not currently able to use the linked account to sign in (not sure if expected or not)

Re: Accusation of Cheating

Breaking anon is not against our site rules. Cheating accusations in a game chat is against the rules. The game in question is not restricted so anyone can post about it if they so wish. Nobody in that game is cheating. I think we can probably let this thread die a natural death now.

There are not any active mods currently, volunteering is unfortunately down significantly these days. I have addressed that game though.

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: Bot openings

The critical problem continues to be - and I wish certain people would stop denying it- is the original creators programmed the bots to recognize the human player AND programmed certain bots to be passive/others aggressive which actually removes realism (the passive bots will sit and do nothing whe...

Re: Worldwide decline in Diplomacy game

I suppose you'll get much more of it if you or JMO or Kestas instal Vdip and Ru-server variants. Also we need posibility to select the language of interface and language-rooms, where you can create games between the chineese-speaking or russian-speaking players, etc. I really think it's a bad thing...

Alright .. I rather unwisely tried to change the forum around without thinking it through, it needs more thought and input so I've reverted that. If there are any problems with the forum let me know, but it should be the posts+users from after the change with forums from before the change. Have you...

Re: Screwed up orders

Agreed, I think the majority of our new players are not necessarily familiar with the game, and if they messed up orders shortly into using the site we'd likely lose them retention wise. Having an opt IN to allowing incorrect orders seems reasonable though.

Re: What is Concede Button for?

Looks like Kestas missed a setting in the config file when he moved the server that limits the variant types that the button can be displayed in. When the variants aren't in the config it defaults to all games. Should be fixed now.

I'm afraid I just had another slow load time (several minutes).

I am using dark mode.
Was it the home page or something else on the site?

Re: webDiplomacy.net new server

Has anyone ran into the issue of the site being slow to load who is NOT on dark mode? I noticed that part of the delay was a missing css file in the KnownWorld variant and created a blank file, and I immediately stopped seeing the delayed load times. If you run into this again please let me know here.
