Where is it again? I tried finding it referenced in old forum threads but as search is non-existent, lucked out.

Looking at the map there's a lot of folk there we haven't seen for ages. Plus many folk here now who aren't on the map.

Bump?

Is there a way this can be updated for ourselves as well? Considering it has been a few years, not everyone may be living in the same location (myself included).

Giving this thread a little love. I'll be doing some travelling soon in the US, Canada and Europe so if I get a chance to catch up with a couple of vDip players for a drink that'd be pretty cool. Using the vDip players map as my starting point: http://goo.gl/maps/EPgiV

Any idea how we can edit our own pin to a different location? I'd love to see this map get an update from any players that may have moved around since last time!
Where will you be in the States, Amby?

Sorry folks at a high level here's my itinerary: Seattle, Vancouver, Orlando/WDW, London, Sussex, Edinburgh, Birmingham (UK... not Alabama), Lisbon, Venice, Rome, Naples, Dubai. Busiest trip ever!
(I should point out that some of these locations I already have a LOT on, so may not be able to catch up with everyone.)

I had forgotten that Oli was in Fulda. There is a Fulda, Minnesota. Harold Hotelling was born in Fulda, Minnesota. If you are not familiar with Hotelling, check out his Wikipedia article.

He is one of the founders of modern Social Science, and he was one of the driving forces to create Statistics Departments within universities as separate academic disciplines from Mathematics. He also has an eponymous rule, law and lemma in Economics.

Smelly stand-ins/replacements
We have a situation, a 'metagaming' tactic which thoroughly distorts gunboat games' outcomes. Replacement players don't have to have the same RRas the game originally required. Thus we can get a replacement whose sole purpose is to recover their own RR by suiciding - moving their own units out of their centres in so another player can move in entirely uncontested.

Can't build in a free SC?
I'm playing World War II and I've got 2 SC's free for example, but I can only build in one of them, I think it might have something to do with units bounced on the other SC in Autumn? Is this some rule somewhere that I've missed or an error?

Hidden orders?
I'm recently back from a year and a half hiatus, and have noticed for a while that for anonymous games it no longer shows who has saved their orders, readied, or not entered orders yet. I can understand why this was done (I've exploited the old system extensively), just curious at to when this change was made, whether there was any discussion on the potential change, and why I haven't seen any information on the change in the rules/feature sections?

IA map issue with English Channel
In the variant World War II, I never seem to be able to move to the English Channel using the IA interface, when I press the space it simply says something about the North Sea being not adjacent to the original position of the unit. It's never came up with any other location. Is this a common issue, or is it just me (I'll message the mods either way, just to get a sense of what might be going on here)?

This is likely to be my last forum post.
I'm sure the mods are pissed and I don't give a fuck. I could use a break anyhow. So silence or banhammer away.

What's the point in muting a nation in non-anon if the mods will let the player PM you?
A player PMed me after I muted his nation and the mods said it's not against the rules. It would seem to me to violate the intent of the press rules if not the letter. I have since muted the player for the rest of the game but that was not my desire.

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

finding replacement for game 34637
Due to outside circumstances, I find I am not able to continue to fully participate in the Embassy Cable game (Gobble Earth variant). The game is currently on an extend phase for another day, so if anyone is willing to take over for Mexico (solid position) please let me know so we can have the mods put you into the game. Thanks!

Unique convoy situation question
I never thought this was possible until someone suggested it, but I have yet to try it. Say you have an army in Spain, a fleet in Marseilles, and a fleet in Gulf of Lyon. The fleet in Marseilles moves to Spain and the army in Spain moves to Marseilles via convoy of Gulf of Lyon. I know in normal Diplomacy rules that two units can't switch locations like that, but does the convoy change the route the army takes at all to allow this?

Quick Rules Question
In Classic, I am confident if an army in Portugal Attacks Spain while an Army in Spain attacks Portugal, both will fail. Would this rule still apply if the it were instead a fleet on the northern coast attacking Portugal and a fleet in Portugal moving to the southern coast?

Our game bugged out, and mods are looking at it. What do we do and what will happen?
So basically, We were playing World War IV 6.2. It was the first time we got our community of players, both on a subreddit and a discord, to play a big 36 player game. Didn't start 100% the best the first year, some players didn't get the rules and ended up starting with 2 units instead of 3.
