Are you currently in any PBF games where you haven't surrendered or NMR'd repeatedly?

You've earned a bit of a reputation here. You might be able to get back off the black-list (and rebuild your reputation) if you prove yourself by offering to fill in as a substitute a few times in some existing games rather than as a player in a brand-new game.

Well, then you're probably recruited.
:-)


Put me in as recruited. My schedule's pretty light, and I'm sure I can take this on.
I have special eyes.

Welcome to the forums!

Since you're new here, I'll put you down as a probably. What's your experience playing Diplomacy so far? Have you ever been in a Play-By-Email (PBEM) match (since that experience is comparable)? What variants have you played?

Would love to play if the game starts after November 1 (frickin' college application deadline...).

I've never played PBF or PBEM before, so if that's an issue put me down to reserve or similar.

Wow! It looks pretty cool...and terribly long to create. :)

Can I be put down as a reserve, please?

I've played Diplomacy five or six times now, once or twice using playdip and four times in real life. I would assume this is the same, except we PM our orders to you(the GM). I've played the original game and Colonial diplomacy.

If you would prefer I didn't play because of inexperience I would understand

Because you have a decent record on PlayDip's website-based games, and you've apparently played some Mafia on the forums, I'm willing to give you a try. You're recruited.

That's a reasonable record. It looks like you haven't finished any games on the site yet, though, so I'd recommend that you keep playing there for a while.

I will, however, keep you as a Reserve. If someone drops out (or is ejected), I'll make sure you're one of the first to receive an offer to take over that slot. It might not be a great position (substitutions rarely are), but it will give you an excellent chance to try out PBF / PBEM.
