RSS feed for Notifications (discussion)
Hi everyone.
Don't miss PMs or game-notifications with your personal RSS-feed.
In your settings-page you can create a unique link that updates with your "Notices"-tab on your homescreen.

Feel free to post ideas for improvements or suggestions.
What's your favorite RSS-client for your platform of choice?

I have been using 'Read' for Android and 'RSS Feed Reader' by feeder.co on Chrome. Both are simple and do their job well enough.

I have also tested 'Feedly', which has app and browser versions. It's really good, but the sheer amount of features was a bit too much for me.

All in all an excellent addition to vDip! Thanks Oli.

I've long wanted to have select diplomacy push notifications for my phone. I'm trying to combine the RSS feature with a reader app to make that happen. I'm testing the "ticker" app or android shortly, but I was curious: Does anyone have RSS readers that can _selectively_ send push notifications to your phone for certain feeds?

Anyone tried IFTTT with the rss module? Looks like the most useful tool here.
teacon7 (1645 D)

Okay so I didn't know that existed, but IFTTT is *exactly* what I was looking for.

How often does the RSS feed update? Despite playing several years of a game, the vdip RSS feed hasn't updated for any of it. Are there limits on how often/when/why the feed updates?
Oli (977 D Mod (P))

The feed is dynamic. It shows always the last 20 notices.

Correction: The last 50.

Also trying the IFTTT app with RSS module. Made a custom applet.
But don't have any notification yet. The app says it may take several hours before working so I guess I'll wait and see.
Oli, do the notifications work for you?

Did fix a lot of validation-errors tonight.
Should work now for most RSS-readers (including IFTTT -> at least it works perfect for me so far ... :-)

I set something up on IFTTT last night, and played several years of a game. Nothing updated and nothing updated... must have been waiting on Oli's error resolution. I got about 50something notifications at 11:13am today. Now the IFTTT service appears to be updating just fine - it takes a minute or so to register the change, but that's not a big deal unless you're playing a live game.

Thanks to Oli and anyone else who made this a reality! You all are the best.

IFTTT usually updates every 15 minutes. So I won’t rely on it for a live game. :-)

It works for me also now, it's great! Really hoping this will appear in webDip !
The RSS does not update for me using Feedly or greader. Am I doing something wrong?
Enriador (1491 D (B))
02 Mar 18 UTC
I got the same problem with Feedly before. Switched to 'Read' app and still no updates. Every notification you got *before* you used the app does appear, but it never updates.

Hi, I've been trying to use IFTTT with my personal RSS and it's been behaving...interestingly. It works beautifully for the first 3 or 4 entries on the feed when a new game starts, then the applets stop triggering. This has happened on two games, the RSS feed is definitely still updating but IFTTT doesn't trigger.

I got in touch with IFTTT support and they're pointing to the feed failing validation because of duplicate GUIDs as the cause. I think they're wrong because there weren't any duplicate GUIDs around the time their applets stopped in either case, but are there any plans for more updates to the RSS feature?

I've been using Feed, and it is working most of the time for new game phases, but doesn't seem to send notifications for PMs, anyone running into this issue?

Noob question
Hi, long time dipper, first time vdipper. Is it possible to enter orders using an android phone, or do I have to wait to get in front of a PC? The orders field just says "loading order" and nothing else happens.

Apologies for the stupid question, and hello!

Bot wars
I've been wondering how well you could write a script to play gunboat diplomacy. Probably not very well (at least to begin with!), but it would be fun to try. I don't really have the time to do this properly right now, but I'm interested to know if it has been done before, or whether anyone would be keen to try at some point in the future.

Issue with South American Supremacy Map
Hey, I'm getting ready to start a game with some friends using the South American Supremacy map. It appears the map is starting with a fleet in Bogata, which is a landlocked territory. the variant homepage lists Bogata as starting with an army. Is there is a good way to correct this? Thanks!

Map Markings
I apologize if this is a repeat question or if it's found somewhere obvious, but I'm brand new to vDiplomacy and I can't seem to find what the difference is between the two types of what I believe are SC markings on the Bye Bye Federalism map.

Can someone help me?

Option to play a variant with fewer than the max number of players?
Hello all,

I and two of my friends love playing 3 player diplo games together. Having gone through the different 3 player maps, I'm wondering if there is a way to play on some of the larger variants, but with just 3 people? For instance, I'd love it if we could play a 3 player game on Fall of the American Empire IV.

Policy For Site Unavailability/Glitch
What do you mods think about having some kind of policy posted to address when the site goes down or is not functional in the future? You have chosen to cancel the 1st game of Divided States over this, but the last time I was involved in a game that had this happen, the last phase was replayed. So currently, the response isn't consistent.

WTA vs Draw-Disvaluated Scoring
What about adding Draw-Disvaluated Scoring to vDip?

It's a mix of Calhamer Scoring (aka Winner-Takes-All) with Draw-Zero Scoring, and has the fortunate effect of pushing players towards a solo unless a draw is absolutely necessary. Solos work like in WTA, but draws are different.

PPSC vs SoS
I couldn’t find the answer in Help.
I know PPSC means in a solo the points are allocated based on supply centre count while in a draw it reverts to an equal split of points like DSS/WTA
For SoS over on WebDip, in a draw the points are allocated on a sum of Squares principle. But Help section doesn’t say what happens in a solo. Same method or reverts to winner takes all? I’m assuming SoS whether draw or solo but checking
Thanks
