Trying to ask the moderator a question but don’t have 20 rep to ping in general Chat. How do I PM the moderator?

Last post was deemed an advertisement by moderator. Not trying to place ads but see if anyone wants to play a new game we have. How can you do that without mentioning the name of the game? It is already published, just new and not as well known as DnD and other stuff you can mention. And just because it is OUR game, the mod sees it as self promotion. Should I log in as someone else and lie and say "Wow guys, I just learned of an awesome new game that isn’t my own… let’s play."

Not trying to be cheeky here, and didn’t want to say all this in public here, but really, 20 rep just to talk on general chat to ping moderator? Come on.

I have a question while using the GSA.

First of all, Happy New Year.

I bought a list of URLs and am using them.
I’ve always had a hard time with the threads that slow down over time.
The cause was a lack of a list. @sven kindly explained to me.

Modifiy project-> Delete Target url cache
Modifiy project-> Delete Target url History
When i run the above function, the threads go up again quickly.

Is the function above to reset everything I submitted verification?
I don’t know why it’s getting faster again.
Is it about erasing simple log messages?
Is this going back to the first time?
Then isn’t there a backlink on the same URL repeatedly?

Question about the addition of hydrogen to a molecule undergoing MoleculeModify

I would like to identify the atom that used to participate in a bond before the molecule was modified by MoleculeModify[mol, {"DeleteBond", {idx1, idx2}}].

According to the official documentation of MoleculeModify:

When removing or replacing an atom, the number of explicit hydrogen atoms may be adjusted to maintain proper valence. Disconnected hydrogen atoms will be removed.

This suggests to me that I should be able to find the formerly participating atom in the connected component by finding the current bond that features the highest atomic index (mol // AtomList // Length).

My questions are:

  1. Is the new hydrogen atom, added to balance out the valences, always guaranteed to have the highest index in the list of atoms of the connected component? (In other words, is such an approach robust?)

  2. Is there a better way to do this?

A first timers question on hosting

I created a website on wordpress and hosted it on google cloud. I followed a tutorial and got everything working on that part really nicely apart from a contact form. Here`s where all started dawn on me that something is not right. I had my Gsuite account working with my domain host default nameservers but when I changed them to Google clouds name server my Email stopped working and when I changed the servers back I got my email working again.

I think that here is many very knowledgeable people that knows what this noob did wrong. Hopefully somebody has time to point me in the right direction and if I`m not in a completely wrong place asking this.

Engine and Networking question for a arpg/hack and slash game [closed]

I would like to develop an ARPG / Hack and Slash multiplayer game in the future. It’s supposed to be an isometric game. There should be several divisions so that players always encounter other players of the same level.

For example:

Division 5: Level 1-20

Division 4: 21-40

You should either come to a map through a server browser or, if none is selected via the browser, come across one randomly. Each map is the same size and looks only slightly different. At the edges of the map, the player should have the option of being ported to another map (to the edge of the map) through a hatch. The edge of the map is a safety zone.

My question would be: Which engine should I use? Unity, Unreal …

And what would be the best solution for networking? Dedicated server? ….

(The player should not be able to host their own server or create a lobby)

D&D 5e – Dominate person recognition, and Squeezing question

Had an interesting session with a DM I generally quite like playing with where he made 2 decisions I disagreed with. Unfortunately a bit of research hasn’t clarified if I’m misunderstanding the rules, so I thought I’d ask:

Scenario: We encountered a frost giant and a few stone giants who weren’t yet hostile to us, but not friendly and refused to cooperate. I cast dominate monster on the frost giant (the leader), making him listen to us in the first instant, while another party member tried to convince them to help us. I then took full control of him, and got him to tell the other giants that we were friends (all of this happening telepathically, as per the spell). At this point the DM said one of the stone giant (a dreamwalker) recognised him as being charmed (apparently because he looked dazed and said that we were friends randomly), and immediately attacked the frost giant, forcing another save and releasing him. The justification here was the stone giant dreamwalker is familiar with charms (it has a passive charm power that does not allow a save on damage, so works quite differently to dominate monsnter). I left it when he made the call but then after the game finished argued that because the spells are quite different I doubt she’d have recognised it, and even if she did, she’d be more inclined to attack me than her leader the frost giant.

So question 1, how easy is it for another NPC to recognise that a creature has been put under the dominate monster spell, after the spell has been cast and the verbal/somatic components not noticed? And would they think that directly attacking that creature would be the most reasonable course of action, barring metagame knowledge of saving throws. A dreamwalker has an intelligence score of 10 and a wisdom of 8.

Question 2, the squeezing rules are quite clear, a large creature can squeeze through a 5 foot space. I have a Pegasus through find greater steed, and he ruled it couldn’t enter mordenkainen’s magnificent mansion despite the rules as written, because "there has to be some disadvantage to having a flying mount, and practically its wings wouldn’t fit". From everything I’ve read it looks like my reading of the rules is correct both as written and intended, other than it being his world and him getting to make up the rules at the table, am I missing anything?

Dnd 5e question. Combination of green flame blade and the tiefling feature “flames of the nine hells”

I’m playing an eldritch knight, and I’m looking to optimize the damage of green flame blade. The feature “flames of the nine hells” states that “You deal 1d4 fire damage when hit by a melee attack and shed 30 feet of bright light after casting a fire spell, you can reroll 1s on spell fire damage rolls” would both the 1d4 fire damage and the re-roll 1’s on fire damage trigger when using green flame blade? Or is this meant for spells of level 1 and higher?
