Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&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: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

How does the point system work?
It would be interresting to have a point system on how many supply centers you've finished with in all of your games. It would make it fun to see how those "Triple Alliances" or any alliance for that matter would work with people fighting over who gets the supply center not just for the win, but for the points.

Currently the points (for ratings) are

Single Player Victory gives 5 points.
Combined victory gives 3 points with 2 players, 2 points with 3 players.
Surrender is -1 points.
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

I think you should score 1 point for surviving until the end (i.e. not getting eliminated or surrendering)

It would be easy to create some sort of ELO rating to get a more accurate measure of a player's skill.
