Is there any way to be able to post a message to yourself about the game that would not be viewable by anyone else? Sort of a "note to self" space where you can write notes about allies or strategies or anything else you'd like to keep track of during the course of a long game.

I wonder if a simple way to do this would be to add the player's own country to the chat box options at the top so you can "send a message to yourself", so to speak.

Some games go on for a long time, so I think this would be a great feature. And I would think it would be easy to implement, but I confess that I know nothing about programming.

Thanks, all.

Kory...

A hack:

Change GameID to your game, and put in

1 if you are england
2 if you are france
3 italy
4 germany
5 austria
6 turkey
7 russia

as the country id

As Ghost says, you can already do this, just not officially.
This is more a bug than a hack, although I guess we should think of it as an Easter Egg.
Note that you have to return to the faked address again if you wish to read the messages, and you will get a new message icon for every game in which you haven't visited the page since sending yourself a message.

Well that is good to know. Thanks for sharing that. I'll start using it.

I don't suppose this will work for gunboat games, will it?

When I say 'hack' I mean it in a very colloquial sense indeed. Kinda like using duct tape :)

It's certainly a hack in the CS sense of 'hack', but not in the mainstream definition, where it means 'crack' or 'penetrate'.

Thought I'd take a stab at making your own country's chat tab, which currently doesn't show up but is accessible in regular press games, an official Notes tab available in all types of press games. And at the same time made the gobal chat box viewable in gunboat, but you still can't post to it unless you are a moderator (or the gamemaster system user.)

First, a regular game:
