Re: Mod forum

Kestas, having worked as a mod on vDip for years as well I can say with 100% certainty that the tool is not scalable, not searchable, and 100% not feasible for webdip. This would destroy years of needed context and downgrade to a much more problematic tool. The vDip team also has to keep an email f...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

A reply to Kestas, and a more concrete vision of what a woman is meant to be, is to follow. Oh boy, can’t wait to hear your vision of what you want a woman to be— I mean what a woman is meant to be.. Women; gather around and be seated, you’re about to be told how you were meant to be, I’m sure you ...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Honestly, this debate is so absurdly ridiculous. Just think of the number of times that Peter Pan, a boy, has been cast by a woman. Here are just the most famous versions: 1904: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_and_Wendy 1924: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Pan_(1924_film) 1950: https://en....

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I wonder what do people think about JK Rowling saying Hermione was black? Rowling did not write her as black in the books. Hermione is white and there are some examples that prove it: Hermione is once described as “white-faced” in the third book. Amos Diggory thought Hermione may be a member of the ...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Well, you would do :razz:. The changes made to the forum back when we moved away from the old style created an environment fundamentally hostile to any view that deviates from the mainstream, where the mainstream is broadly defined by US liberal media. As this has been in place for some time now th...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I doubt that many people realize (if it's even true) that this live action remake will literally duplicate every scene from the animated Disney version. I remember seeing the trailer and how it had the same scenes, same background etc. Even if this were widely known, don't you think that it's a bit...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Your point here appears to be that Disney knew it would be controversial, therefore it was done for publicity, therefore it shouldn't have been done. But it's only controversial in the first place because of people being racist. You don't have to be racist to not like companies using tokens for pub...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

It only got free media attention because the criticism of the casting choice is very lame. I'd like to believe that they made this decision thinking no-one would give a thought to her skin color.. But when they're remaking the animated film scene by scene, song by song, shot by shot, same plot, sam...

Re: Publishing First Draft of Diplomacy Variant

When you say share/publish what do you mean? Do you have a webDip compatible variant that you want to install somewhere public for testing, or are you looking to post a map and get feedback on it?

Thanks; the new proxy setup had a javascript optimization that sped the site up but affected the load ordering. I've disabled that for now

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

If you have a problem with a fictional mermaid being black, you have serious problems. The movie might be terrible (I doubt it's marketed towards middle-aged white men), but just off the reaction to the trailor... i dunno man. I lost a bit of faith in humanity after that. I think these live-action ...

Re: Bots not entering orders

Oof that was a nasty one.. Turns out the DipNet bots actually use the beta.webdiplomacy.net domain (!) which I thought was obsolete and unused, and was running really old code, I didn't even think it was connected the production database. As part of setting up the new proxy I rationalized some of th...

Re: Bots not entering orders

Thanks for reporting this; looks like DipNet is having some issues submitting orders, likely due to the new proxy setup. It's weird because other bots are submitting orders fine, looking into what's going on now

Re: User relationship management

Mmm that was satisfying; just went though 6 months worth of cheating accusations, relationship declarations, in just 1-2 hours. People are declaring relationships, responding quickly to request for info, very nice. That is a *lot* easier than it was.

Re: Error triggered: Column 'ip' cannot be null

Yep now that we're using a content delivery network / caching / proxy service the IP that request from the server isn't the IP of the actual user, so I had to make a change to IP logging so that it logs the IP of the original request. While doing that it started logging IPv6 addresses which didn't fit
