Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: viewtopic.php?f=130&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=42845

Draws Question

Postby Dolph Shtoss » 17 Dec 2017, 18:17

I'm posting as Dolph Shtoss so that my username isn't seen by those in my game and my strategy isn't compromised. Hope that's okay.

Anyway, my question is this: if a country chooses not to vote on a draw (that is, their status stays as "no response,") but every other country votes "yes," will the draw be approved, or would I specifically need to vote "no" in order to prevent the draw?

With a no response, the draw proposal will not be approved. It does not require a no vote, so the draw proposal will just expire & the game continue.

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.
