Game 166866 let players read each other's messages (no bug)

This is a game where we let people rank their top three preferences, and it is a Protected game (with first-turn NMR protection also). Twice we had the Austrian player NMR and be switched out (after the first time, everyone else was assigned the same power as they were before). After we got another replacement player, the players assigned to France and Germany ended up being switched, and could see each other's old messages.

We are making a new game, but is there a way this old game (still in Spring 1901 orders) can be deleted?

Just as a creative solution.

If someone intentionally NMR’s in Spring 1901 it will go back to waiting for players, yet again.
At that point the other 6 can cancel their participation in the game (before yet another Austria arrives!) & the game disappears (after 30 days, I think) because it has no participants.

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.

V, thanks for the suggestion! I think this is what we'll do.

Hopefully the site administrators can address the other issue.

This is a pretty terrible bug. I will unrank it and terminate the game.

The game has been terminated. There was no need to unrank, as it was a Friends game.

Normally when you have a spring 01 NMR... you keep your same countries. That was the bug

Unless I am in the cheater's subforum. 99% of what I say is NOT as a mod.

Just clearing up some ofthe Bugs list, helping out on a flying visit.

This is not actually a bug, because it is a Friends game. In a Friends game, there is no restriction on people leaving the game and joining as a different power etc. It is assumed since it is a friends game everyone knows what is going on. If it had not been a Friends game, players would have been forced into the countries they were playing before.
