As far as the math goes, adjusting C for the different rating systems is an interesting way to do it. I'm having trouble conceptualizing the actual result of that.
Here's a graph of expected score (against average opponents) vs. rating for different values of c:

Re: Ghost Rating V2

Thanks for putting this together. Is inactivity based on the date a player's last game finished? Yup, inactivity is based on last game finished. It would be really cool if there was a way to see how each game affected your rating. I'd love to do that. We can make fun graphs and everything. However,...

Re: Ghost Rating V2

Did you change the math at all? Yeah, it's been tweaked quite a bit from the last one I posted. I also noticed some errors in the code since the last time time so just ignore that the old one ever existed. You can always ignore the unrankedness for the specific 1v1 variant ID if you really want to ...

Ghost Rating V2

Not to bury the lede, here are the GR2 ratings for February. Note that inactive players are filterable using the column on the far right. Intro As most of you know, Ghost Rating is currently the (official yet unintegrated) rating system we use at WebDiplomacy. We have had lots of discussion over the...

Re: Repercussions for quitting

Not to hate on GR, but maybe site resources would be well spent on developing a site rating system that works with the site more seamlessly?? I think that has been on the wish list for quite a long time - I remember ATC talking about. My understanding, however, is that it is quite challenging and t...

Hopefully you've just had a string of bad luck on the site. Keep going at it and hopefully you'll find some more amicable opponents.

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

A bunch of people from here have accounts there and play under different names. (I'm clearly more honest or less creative because I use the same name at both).

I think Machiara's name on this site is Bo_Sox

Re: Site section?

+1 to tournaments section

I've seen other sites also create sub-forums for each tournament that's started. I don't think that's a bad idea if it's easily doable.

Yeah, meme, I was kind of surprised by the way they handled it. You'd expect some amount of understanding that ppl might be confused by the pause system.

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

Probably could have come close with draws but I haven't really looked at the scoring that closely. It was just fun to get a new experience on a new site. Being able to send messages to multiple recipients is a nice little change from what I'm used to here.

Re: 2017 Online Diplomacy Championship results

It was a pretty fun tournament with some strong competition. I got a largish draw in each of my games. I probably could have pushed a couple of them to try get a better finish but didn't have the stomach or drive to do it.

Shame that not more people from WebDip stuck it out.

Re: 2017 Player of the Year Awards

I want to know the methodology for picking poty "well you know this year we're prioritizing 1v1 but let's just randomly stick VI in the top 3 to make it pretend that we still care about diplomacy and this site hasn't been delegated to a low tier 1v1 mess" Leave it to a FtFer to take things too seri...

Re: EIDRaS Ratings

@Bo 7 was just chosen because that's what Judge did. It's in the litany of variables for us to discuss if we adopt the system. Also, I misspoke in that quote. I adjusted the weighting of games that include provisional players. The reason for this is exactly as you pointed it out. We can get a new s...

Re: EIDRaS Ratings

Did you change the expected result calculation for each scoring system? The existing one is tailored to DSS. We expect the best players to do even better in SoS and the worst players to do even worse, and we expect the opposite in PPSC. The expected score doesn't change with the scoring system but ...

After a quick and entirely not rigorous look through the database, the quickest solo I could find that looked somewhat legit was Russia in 1907:
