Re: Bot communication?

I understand that this is probably very difficult to code, but could a feature be added where you could perhaps enter a command like /alliance or /nonaggression or perhaps buttons in the chat menu? I think this would be really cool and would maybe help new players get an understanding of the diplom...

Re: Normalize Killing Turkey Easily in Gunboat

I recommend the wonderful Gunboat Database to assess country strength. https://public.tableau.com/app/profile/jens.forsgaard/viz/GunboatDiplomacyOpeningDatabase/Overview (edit: I wrote all this and then realized that I misread "easily" for "early".... :shock: I think the general point stands, thoug...

Re: Unable to join games due to reliability rating

Hmmm, I thought that all new accounts on this site start with 0 reliability, but maybe I'm wrong.... ...regardless, I think the solution is to just play one game against the bots :) instructions here: https://www.webdiplomacy.net/faq.php in "Our AI" and then "How do I play against the AI?"

Valis, were you going to track stats in a spreadsheet or something for these 21 games, or should worcej keep going and compile something?
I am using a spreadsheet to track already lol

Looks like we need a replacement?
I'm around if needed/wanted, but I'm not sure if seren/jasnah is looking to get temporarily unbanned from their player requested ban in order to finish the games?

Re: Site certification expired

Don't try to make the issue about me. Yes, sorry about that. I think I phrased my response too directly. Didn't want to cause a pile on in either direction, towards you (thatwasawkward) or towards the devs. But I think all I did was bring more attention to your post :/ I'm not trying to ignore site...

Re: Site certification expired

No disrespect intended... Setting up an automated process to renew the cert is, frankly, pretty trivial. Curious why it hasn't been done yet. I assume you mean well, but given that: 1. there's already a forum thread about this 2. it's already been brought up to the devs in the webdip discord 3. dev...

For choosing the "Proceed" option, for me it seems like I have to keep doing it over and over from Chrome but _only once_ for Firefox. Just a psa.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

I don't blame Goldmember for the original rules. The frustration is with the players in the games. Right, and as one of the players in one of the gunboat games, I'm asking you to specify who you're mad at by calculating which team(s) theoretically benefits from delaying which game ending first. I d...

Let's get this ball rolling. If 50 different people take a number <60 or something like that, then we all earn 60 points for our next signup. I'll start the trend.

Re: Announcing the 2021 WebDip World Cup!

IMO there is no reason for gunboat games to take 36 hours per phase. There is no press to send or receive. Its pure gamesmanship by a team or teams who want the other group to finish first so they can know what result they need in their game. This has to be addressed by the TD. Could you be more pr...

Re: Missing turns when playing against bots shouldn't count as being unreliable

I have no idea if this sort of change would be easy or hard, given bots games are the easiest way to gain reliability as a new user/player on this site. An easier, faster change might be to up the default phase length for bots games? I assume 3 days was picked because it seemed reasonable, but maybe...
