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.

A comment on common courtesy
Stuff happens in life and people occasionally need help from Mods to exit games without destroying the games for other players. Players who need Mods to remove them and delay games should provide a list of all of their games to the Mods. This is common courtesy.

Yeah, I'm guessing this a problem with whatever coding language vdip uses being updated. Deprecation is when functions and whatnot are removed from a language due a strictly superior new version being implemented, so this will take a site wide update to fix.

Not sure if this helps with debug purposes but for gameID=48358, messages say that Iowa went into civil disorder about 30 times over, but some batches of civil disorder messages happened at different times to each other
We had Germany go into Civil Disorder in Sticky Keys potentially over this.... His position had reasonable potential.... Hopefully he can be allowed back in when this is resolved.... Hate to see them miss their 3 builds that could upset the outcome of a close fight with Russia.

Games will not process. The timer will simply stop when reaching the deadline. Times will be added to all game before processing will be re-enabled.

From the first investigation, the issue is related to an apparent server configuration change most likely by the hosting service. The current vDip code base relies on very outdated dependencies, in particular the almost 2 decades old php 5 version. Apparently, that version is no longer available, which will cause all games to break at some point. But fortunately the webdip code base is already upgraded and we might be able to use the fixes they have made.

We are currently reaching out to Oli for assistance since nobody else has the necessary access to fix the problem here.

It will most likely take a few days to get the website back running again, even if we can get in contact with Oli soon.
I always wondered why this Oli fellow didnt give access to someone else during his absence.

Update: I have confirmation by Oli on the issue. I plan a code update on the weekend that Oli can then install on the server. The very tentative estimate is thus that we will get the site working by the end of the upcoming weekend, or maybe shortly after.

Out of curiosity (from a former software developer, but not with php) does vDip use an out of support php version, because whoever supports the vDip software does so for free in their spare time - and thankyou to whoever for that - or because vDip uses other third party components that themselves are outdated and require old versions of php?

Request for a game sitter
I currently have a position in the DSA game (gameID=41200), however, I expect to be out of cell reception from the 18th-27th (possibly ending a little earlier). If anyone is interested in watching the game for me for a while please reply below, and I will DM you. I can't tell you the country before you agree to take it, but I am not doing badly.

Thanks!

Forced extend?
https://www.vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=49570#gamePanel

In this game, the mods forced a 5 day pause because of an issue a player had. I believe the mods overstepped their authority by not letting the players vote themselves on whether to extend/pause the game. Instead of a message unilaterally pausing the game, I would have appreciated a message explaining the situation and giving the option to extend.
