Mark... PLEASE hear him out.
First... The Diplomacy civ group you pointed out is in regards to the actual game of Diplomacy. Ozzy is talking about something totally different. He is talking about a very specific and very formal version of playing Civ II MP. While there already is a Civ II MP civ group (which is almost as large as the Civ III MP group ) there is a subset of that group that plays what they have named "Diplogames". They are played with very specific rules that have been built up over the years and have been well documented thanks to the continuing and hard efforts of Ozzy and other Diplogame players. While we all actually "play" Civ II MP, their version is FAR different than what the rest of us are playing. And while many people play Civ II MP both ways, there is a proud and strong community of Civ II Diplogame players. There group is as active and as dedicated as many of the other groups that have civ groups.
I ask you to reconsider and to add a "Diplogame" civ group to the Civ II MP Forum... They are an important part of the Civ II community.
And Seocnd... yeah, it was pointed out that two civ groups in a forum isn't a problem ( I didn't know that) so ignore any earlier comments I made
