Hello again friends. It's been a while since I contributed via my blog. Life got busy and difficult...but on the other hand, it is invigorating to contribute to a community that I enjoy so much. Sometimes I should remember that I feel better after I finish writing than before I started!

As always a great article though your suggestion of getting a coach outside the game is accorring to playdip a form of metabgaming. As far as I know the rules of
this site forbid what they call 'team play'.

Not saying this is good or bad btw. Just my understanding. Are these rules realistic? I am not sure. What purpose do they fulfill. Again no idea

As an aside I notice some from here asking for advice on Reddit using play dip maps.

I guess there's only so much a site can do with what dib brings up. Mods can control what happens here mostly but what someone does away from the site is a different matter. How different is it asking for suggestions on another site from asking a mate or family member to look at your map?

And there's nothing wrong with trying to play a game as best you can and working it out yourself... then asking what others would have done when the game's over.
