Man, the pop-up warnings when you sign up at floc.net are intense.
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 13 2015 17:55
Yeah, they go a bit overboard
Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 17:56
More than a bit. Old-school gamers, man. Brrr.
Do not fuck with these people.
Daniel Carter
@dancarter

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 17:58
But anyway I am all signed up and e-mailed and ready to go. Which you can presumably see, somewhere in this arcane interface.
For values of you that include only @dancarter.
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 17:59
I feel like this is a security problem...

haha yeah I got that too
Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 18:00
Surprisingly, same. Except there was only one other Eben.
But I had to tell them my full name, or else they would go to my mother's house and kill her dog. I'm pretty sure that's what the warning said, anyway, I skimmed it.

fyi guys, the passwords are stored in plain text, so don't use your normal password
I just changed mine
Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 18:05
1Password to the rescue. I don't even know what my password is, just that it's a randomly-generated string of characters.
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 18:05
yeah I should get that but I am so cheap
jk it's not cuz i'm cheap
It's more that i'm lazy
which is bad

Jan 13 2015 19:28
Ok. All signed up. That was some intense popups.
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 13 2015 19:28
I feel like more website design should be based around javascript pop ups
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 19:31
I'm gonna start making all websites a blank page, with all contents on popups
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 13 2015 19:32

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 19:32

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick

Jan 13 2015 19:41
Do we have a time frame of when the first move need to be submitted tomorrow?
Mo Zhu
@zhumo

Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 13 2015 19:42

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 19:46
11:59 PM Wednesday? Whoah that's coming up face. Gotta master this arcane email interface.
Daniel Carter
@dancarter
Jan 13 2015 19:46

Parinda Darden
@pdarden
Jan 13 2015 19:47

@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 19:50

1) It looks like you have to go through West Mediterranean first.
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 13 2015 20:50
2) Denmark has a supply center
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 20:51
can I take an army from Denmark to Sweden w/o a boat?
can I move a boat from baltic to skagerrak in one move?
Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 13 2015 20:51
I don't think so...
Yes to can I move a boat from baltic to skagerrak in one move?
no to the army
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 20:52

Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 13 2015 20:53
Looks like it to me
Especially if I use a few other maps
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 21:12

Lorrayne Rocha
@lorrocha
Jan 13 2015 21:12

Mo Zhu
@zhumo
Jan 13 2015 21:12

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 21:15
If you're submitting orders by email, they do have some documentation about how exactly that works: http://www.floc.net/dpjudge/?page=Format
But supposedly there's also a web interface once all the players have joined, yes.

Eben Lowe
@enthusiastick
Jan 13 2015 21:18
Oh god don't sign up on mobile. I shudder to think what those eleventy pop-ups will do to a phone browser.
Mo Zhu
@zhumo
