Re: User relationship management

I tried to report us in a relationship again, but got another error. Happy to work off message board if it would be better. That said, I suspect most metagamers won't be too concerned with voluntarily reporting themselves, and the bigger item will be collecting data on others' reports... That is tr...

Re: User relationship management

I think this is a decent idea, but there may be some bugs in the implementation. First, I tried to test reporting a relationship with you, with the intent of withdrawing it after report, but I couldn't do that. It errored out once I tried to report. So not sure that part if working yet. Hmm, yep I ...

Re: External account / external authentication linking

Hmm, what exception do you get? Could you get a screenshot or some such? Yep it doesn't allow sign on yet; once we've ironed out all the kinks we'll start offering it for authentication. I do have trouble myself using the Log out function, but for me it just doesn't log me out and I need to clear co...

User relationship management

Hi, Dealing with cheaters is a large part of what the mod team do to keep the site fun to play on, and I think we've been reminded recently how important mod time or the lack of it is to the site. So we're trialing a system that aims to let users take more control over relationships between users. "...

External account / external authentication linking

Hi all, As part of a push to reduce the load on the mod team, and modernizing the platform, we're trialing letting users link their accounts to external authentication providers, e.g. Facebook/Google/Apple/etc, and SMS phone linking. The idea is it gives more robust and modern authentication and mak...

Re: Dealing with the Metagame

Hahah, I don't want to reignite any of those old scoring system debates.. If there isn't a consensus (even a consensus to try it) probably best to leave alone for the moment Are ghost ratings an alternative to these scoring systems, or is that more of an Elo thing that isn't compatible with our poin...

Re: Dealing with the Metagame

I'd be fine with changing the default to SOS if the consensus is that that would be an improvement?

Reliability rating change

Hi all,

FYI the reliability ratings have been optimized and made more live for all users. The yearly counts were quite a bit out of sync I believe, so the ratings will have jumped around a bit.
Let me know if you see anything you don't think is right.

Rgds,

Re: Bots not entering orders

Okay spoke to Philip who pointed out an issue with the www.webdiplomacy.net certificate, it seems the MILA bots use the www URL, which apparently our status check scripts didn't catch. I've fixed the cert and will fix the status bot. Still not sure what happened with that update, clearly some Apache...

Re: FW: Re: Re: Bots not entering orders.

They are too busy posting adverts for fake banknotes and passports on the forum. Those damned bots. Shouldn't we be seeing some profit theteby, then? Your cheque is in the mail Notably, I think the bots will still work in the France vs. Austria and Germany vs. Italy scenarios but not in Classic. Af...

Hi all, I haven't played many bot games so not sure the best thing to do. Should I halt processing until the bots are restored?

Re: Openings for new moderators!!!!

I'm not familiar with the recruitment drive, but I have offered to chip in and see if I can help with the backlog. Also we're trialing a new helpdesk system that uses the e-mail help@webdiplomacy.net , with tickets then going to https://help.webdiplomacy.net . This could help make certain requests e...
