Re: Mod Team Announcement

Normally we just delete spam posting, but I really find them picking a mod announcement thread as the spot to try and fraud people hilarious. :lol:

Re: I joined a game, and they're all bots

I know it says to email the mods, but can complaining on the forums work as an acceptable alternative? Unfortunately the mods are too busy dealing with emails to read the forums for the most part. Oh I've read this, but if I encourage members who know better by letting them get away with cutting in...

Re: Canceling movement/support bug?

backstabber does not follow the DATC rules entirely, meaning they coded in their logic in a custom way that might not adjudicate as you'd expect. They also have issues with allowing incorrect moves around coasts. I would love to see the sandbox though to see if this is one of the cases where their l...

Re: Spring 2020 1v1 Champions League

Last time, yes. Now, no... When I click on your webDip profile it still says: "Banned by a moderator: multi/meta/no reply" I assume that simply hasn’t been updated since you say you are in the clear, good look in the tourney, will be fun to see how everyone does! The way site bans work is that they...

It's there ANY possible way to even survive as Austria? Seems like the AI defaults to all three neighbors to immediately attack.
Yes, use supports to signal the desire for an alliance to the bot like a normal human player. I just tried it out, http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=287589

Re: "Open Position" & Game Stats

They do still count towards your stats. Some people measure themselves based on stats, some on points (takeovers are free), some on ghostrating. If you want to play for stats then I recommend against taking over a position with only 1 or 2 centers. If you play for fun and still find those interestin...

April Fools

I hope everyone enjoys this year's April Fools prank. I made this one a bit more subtle due to some complaints about prior ones being too obnoxious during game play...though I still think the site being hot pink was an improvement.

Re: Betting / Gambling

It is not permitted. Common Sense rule. Online gambling is illegal without a license in various places, we do not have one, so no gambling. For non monetary bets like point gambling, having to have the mod team transfer points and police it would be a pain, so also prohibited.
