Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

Well, I posted a sincere thread marking International Women's Day and you felt it was appropriate to make a comment/joke, which quite a few people clearly felt came across as crass and apparently sexist. Next time, think twice before you do that, maybe? Yep I'll think twice, but the joke was at the...

Re: Unable to close sandbox game, and therefore unable to play bot games

Thanks for the report. The sandbox mode doesn't work with the point and click UI in builds phase yet, and I haven't added the sandbox delete button to it. I've made a change so sandbox mode games will default to the dropdown UI, you can still use the point and click UI for diplomacy/retreats phase b...

Re: Forum moderation/activity discussion

By the way what was the reason for not allowing images? Was there a worry there'd be more to moderate? There's no technical reason we can't turn it on for everyone I can think of

Re: Forum moderation/activity discussion

Interesting stuff, probably more to respond to than the below I was going to post in zultar's thread but didn't want to take that back off the rails.. I can say we can rule out going back to a wild-west approach, that's one thing I think we're unanimous on. Out of curiosity, do you have stats on how...

But really the site owner making sexist comments is a bad look I thought this website couldn't drop any lower but guess I was wrong 💀

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

jmo said he couldn't give enough time to run the site in 2022 and that there were no active mods, the mod e-mail had a big backlog, etc. At the time every month I had to do a fair chunk of work for the Meta project so I couldn't help with mod work much. What changed is the Meta project work ended A...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

Zultar, you did more for this site than most people will ever know. It was a pleasure and a privilege to work with you over this time. Kestas, you're a power tripping asshat and I'd never help you again despite how much I care about the site. Agreed re: zultar. Sorry jmo it doesn't work to have an ...

Agreed bo, will see you around. Maybe you can stay on just retired if nothing else. Keep us posted on the photography and play a game. Thanks for all you've done, hoping the best for the project also, should be good.

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

Why did the owner who never even logged in suddenly push away all the mods and admins who have actually made this site what it is? I wonder what changed.....

Yep there was a bug with a sandbox mode change and some variants, that should be resolved now, thanks for the heads up.

Re: Sandbox feature

Ah yeah, good point. Bot games and sandbox games behave similarly internally so sandbox games are also tagged as bot games.

Assuming it was Kestas: Hint: this is the kind of shit we don't like :o ominous!.. I figured the thread was split to move the discussion away from zultar, dargorygel didn't have permission to split it (he does now) so he made a new thread. I thought two threads based on the same topic should be mer...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

I think if anything the front page of the site being redesigned to better showcase the new forum, as well as WebDip actually utilizing Discord and not just having one that exists to exist would be better changes. Seriously. The WebDip Discord is so fucking boring and useless. What do other sites us...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

Didn't spot your follow up I know my post probably comes across as 'what a snowflake' to those who aren't affected by what I'm talking about. On the old forum I would never have posted it because the response would 100% be a torrent of abuse. Hell, I dislike posting it even now because I'm an extrem...

Re: My resignation at webDiplomacy

I am hoping to loosen the rules on the forum a bit; the women I asked didn't find the post sexist, and no-one found the other tongue-in-cheek comment objectionable, but that's up to people to decide. I don't think it's as big of a deal as it's being made out. They did agree that moderators should b...

Re: Sandbox feature

I've added a link to create new sandbox games at the top under Games, and at the bottom of any game you can click "Copy to sandbox". Within a sandbox game you can click "Move sandbox back a turn" to go back a turn, and "Delete sandbox" when you're done. Everything seems to be working except for the ...
