Yes.

It would be unfair of me to procrastinate updating this thread less than I procrastinate updating the Versailles Tournament forum (at least I admit my shame in my signature).
However, being the first ever advanced mentor is fun stuff... no procrastination there--the ladies will get more of my time.

Kept intending to run an advanced mentor game but never quite got around to it. Let me know how it goes.
The first quality that is needed is audacity.

Was looking back to some old posts...
Hahahaha omg I can't believe I didn't get around to / forgot to post the rest of these answers...
I think I really was busy enough organizing and setting up PDVT and Advanced Mentor All-Female games at the time.
Well, to the best of my memory (also reading answer PMs to refresh me a bit), I will finally, after 3 years lol, share the answers, now that no one cares anymore haha.

2) Of the players listed above, who has been accused of not deserving their high ranking?
Ummmmmm... the answer I thought this was... I just researched him... I thought they had received accusations of cheating... which I cannot find at this time... maybe I confused them with hamstercollecter.

3) Of the players listed above, who has been #1 at least 3 separate times?
I'm pretty sure this answer was Peanut (who included himself as one of his answers to this question), who at one time was going up and down from the #1 spot.

4) Of the players listed above, who have I (sinnybee) accused of complaining more than once in the high rank Diplomacy game arena?
SplitDiplomat... was so annoying at the start of the top tier playdip/webdip game of 2011... got completely infuriated at cs (or was it jimbobicus?) for being a bit slow confirming the game.

5) As was recently discussed in the Chatbox, what player was (several years ago) supposedly offered the highest (fake) salary of $500,000 by a Diplomacy team?
TheRedArmy aka Bush Leagues said "Connect4! I remember that. My salary, even with maximum bonuses, couldn't hit 500K!" However, I could have sworn the answer was Diplomat, though this was 3 years ago that I wrote this and I might not be remembering correctly.

6) Of the players listed above, who never paid for a premium membership (and never donated money to the site)?
Rolan A Doobie

7) Of the players listed above, who is a tournament winner?
bitwise, who won the first Grand Tournament (with an Italian solo)
(I'm not sure if gsmx had won his tournament yet)

8) Of the players listed above, who is not from the US or Canada or the UK?
Bitwise is from Denmark and SplitDiplomat is from "Split,Croatia (Trieste)"

9) Of the players listed above, who has previously been a global moderator?
Diplomat and Master Radishes, who were the first mods.

10) What displayed record did detroit_red hold?
I'll just let him use his own words:
detroit_red PM to sinnybee wrote:I wasn't aware that I held any records! The only thing I can think of would be for the game I won in something like 1904? But that game was a travesty of NMRs and poor play and really shouldn't count. All I did to win was lie to Austria. Twice. In a row. Okay, maybe three times. Sigh. So I'll go with that: "Fastest (Undeserved) Win".

11) As of November 2010, who was the only player (at least out of the top 40 active and inactive members at that time) to have a win (solo + draw) rate of over 90%?
bb82 (91.30%)

Haha, I've always wondered what the answers were.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
