Advertise your NON-live games here!
In an effort to compromise the pro-ads versus anti-ads for games: Post here for your non-live games to cut down on the number of ads but still advertise games. Post game link, WTA or PPSC, and the bet. Note: this doesn't count for special rules games.

"Theoretical" Game
So there's a map called Fubar (https://vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=39). Let's say I created a game called "HA! Pranked!" where it was choose your own country (So I choose the big one), and then I make the SC count to win 8 (greater than any other country has, except the big one which starts with 10). 5 other people are foolish enough to join the game. Would I just win automatically then?

Game processing paused
We are currently having some problems after another WebDip code merge with some deep changes to the codebase. Game processing has been paused until this is resolved.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Sealanes Question
Say I am in the Sealane territory of X SW, and I’m attacking an adjacent Y sea territory, but the Y itself not Y SW/N etc. And I support myself in, can the Y territory retreat into my exposed X sea territory, despite me attacking from X SW?

Move Didn't Go Through
I was looking for clarification from the Mod team as to why a certain unit was not dislodged in a gunboat game with 1.5 day phases, so I sent a message in the Mod forum yesterday morning. I haven't received a response and the next phase of the game is about to go through. What is the proper action in this situation? Should I vote extend and hope for a last-minute extend? Thanks for advice.

Discord Server
I don't use this website much but I know ya'll do, would you be interested in making a Discord for you to discuss this game on?

Discord is way easier to use than these forums and you can do things like post pictures, have dedicated channels for different topics, and other really cool things (in real time, without having to refresh the page!), so it's definitely a great way to discuss this type of game. If you guys are interested in this, let me know in this thread and I'll see about building a server for ya'll to use (unless there already is one you use)
bruh there are a bunch of discords for diplomacy already. WebDip has an official one, and then theres the Nexus with people from all platforms.
https://discord.gg/AGjEXZ this is an invite to the nexus, and on there theres a section with all the other discord invites. You'd be surprised by how many there are.

Seems good, I just didn't know if vDiplomacy specifically had one. I saw that there was a post about adding a chat feature to the website so I figured ya'll probably didn't have anything like a Discord yet
Na I don’t think vdip does

Changes to make PPSC better
Currently, the PPSC system rewards points in a solo. It has a number of perverse effects on gameplay. In the subsequent post(s), I will outline changes that could reform PPSC and reduce its detrimental impact.

Google Translate Game
Hello everyone! I am looking for six other players to join a game of Classic(probably, another variant if more want to play), public press, where every player must send messages after putting them through several other languages and then back into English.

I am open to suggestions on exactly which languages and how many there should be.

Update Nexus Cold War tournament
For who wants to know: 47 participants joined and were seeded in both brackets (called east and west) so everybody has two chances to reach the final. (and if the semi's have the same people in it we go straight to the final)

Small improvement to the chat interface...
In an attempt to clear the chatinterface a bit I changed the tabs.
It now shows the countries you have sent or received messages by default, and groups all other in a new selector.

Decompressive Backseat Orchidectomy Restart
For those that were in this cancelled game (over the technical gaff beyond our control), I’ve recreated the game as Decompressive Bilateral Backseat Orchidectomy. Message me, G-Man, for the password. This is just a restart for the same group of players that had already been playing this game. So, no newcomers please.

Conceding/Withdrawing from a game
Sorry if this is a well-flogged dead horse, but I've looked in the 'Help' section and can't seem to find an answer to this. Is it possible to concede a game - I don't mean voting for a concede result, but for a player to unilaterally withdraw from the game deliberately?

Why can't you view anything besides the public chat in archives?
Look I understand why you can't watch it during the game, since you could Pm players the details, but after a game has ended, I want to be able to view alliances, deals, and other things that you just couldn't see in the normal chat.

Manifest Destiny map issue
