Hey.

I've noticed this a while ago, but never mentioned it because it's kind of minor, but there's a way (and it's not a complicated one either) to enter a game to the wich you don't have the password, as long as you know the number (for example, by looking at the profile of a player who joined it).

Basically, if you open the game, even if you haven't joined it, the "Link friends to this game" message box is there, with the link to join that includes the password.

So, for instance, say PlayerA decides never to play again with PlayerB, but PlayerB is kind of a douchebag. So, PlayerA posts in the forum to recruit for a passworded game, saying he'll give the password through e-mail to applicants. PlayerB only needs to get into PlayerA's profile, find the passworded game in pre-game phase, open it, and follow the "Link friends to game" link.

That shouldn't be allowed to happen, right?

I created this game so that anyone can check this is true. I haven't given the password to anyone.

The game link (not the joinable with the password embebbed) is http://www.phpdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=12305, but you can acces that from my profile also.
