Cloudfare caching/security

Hi all, FYI we've changed our DNS host to Cloudfare; it has features to improve speed by caching static content like images, and gives options for security improvements and handling of spikes in activity. I've enabled caching only on www.webdiplomacy.net and play.webdiplomacy.net, not webdiplomacy.n...

Re: Diplodocus - The AI That Conquered Gunboat Diplomacy

Very interesting. Didn't know until this vid and some further digging that yolo5 (a user that I ran into multiple times last summer, in non-tournament games) was the bot. Wish those games were unranked like the tournament ones were... We were asked to keep certain bot accounts under wraps to ensure...

Re: Diplodocus - The AI That Conquered Gunboat Diplomacy

Interesting stuff.. were you expert 1, 2 or 3? Going to talk to Noam about whether we can run any of these bots here to mix it up a bit from the DipNet bots, and provide some varying difficulties etc.

Re: Group panel update requests

Also we've done a bunch of work behind the scenes on how the data entered this way is processed. This brings it much closer to the final goal which is being able to see pre-existing relationships and suspicions before joining a game, and being able (via an optional setting) to exclude players which ...

Group panel update requests

Hi all, A new feature intended to streamline how we handle people with relationships outside of the site and multi-accounters / meta-game suspicions has been added to the group panel / user relation feature. Although all suspicions and existing relationships logged in the group panel are available f...

Re: Mod Team Announcement

Is there still a need for new mods to help with workload? There is, thanks for asking (and thanks for making use of the suspicion lodging functionality) The reason we're not adding new mods is that we're putting in some new features in the background to try and reduce the mod workload in various wa...

Reliability ratings and locking changes

I've made some changes to reliability ratings; the previous optimizations meant you couldn't really see what was going on with the calcs if they went wrong, but now what's shown on your profile is tied to the actual numbers used in the new calcs. It seemed like the way it was calculated was built on...

Appreciate you being straightforward JECE, and I think you're right.. Doom427 I apologize: JECE is right that I definitely don't and can't know you're a hateful / prejudiced person based on this brief back and forth, and I did make that comment without giving myself time to think it through.

Re: WebDip isn't saving moves

Okay; so the RR calculations previously would do a scan of the entire user table and the entire missed turns table for every turn and every user, and this was the cause of some of the locking issues so it needed to be optimized, so a few dev cycles ago I optimized the RR calcs. There was a bug in th...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

I don’t like stuff like this: https://twitter.com/thatguyscotland/status/1448211977629798402 I wish men would stop catcalling me from their cars, and I really wish they would stop fucking women who were black out drunk.

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

Terrible writing and shallow plotlines are nothing new, but blatant open sexism being okay again is something new and weird in a world that's more tolerant towards almost everything. And setting it up so that you're either a white male incel/republican/nazi/misogynist if you don't approve of what D...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

America has a lot of republican incel woman-haters, and that generates some of the hate. Brie Larson, in her 1st interview, interupted a male reported and said she only wanted ocmments from females. That put a lot of men against her. Currently, most of the hate is towards She-Hulk. It is intentiona...

Re: WebDip isn't saving moves

Apologies; a change was made to remerge the github and latest codebase and a change went missing. I still don't understand how it worked when I tested it..

Let me know if any issues persist, I've added time to all games. Thanks for reporting this.

Re: Reliability rating problem

Hi Spitnaz, there does seem to be a bug with RRs, we changed the way it's calculated to reduce the locking issues and improve performance. Has it updated for you or it is still the same?
