5G is the topic
Our current cell towers, phone/power lines, etc already give off radiation. 5g= 4g x100. What do you know?

New Variant in development: Brazilian - Classic
My grandfather recently died and as I went through his things I found a prototype for a Diplomacy bootleg. He used to work in import/export in South America so maybe it was related to that. In his honor I am working to digitize the variant. Here is a preview image:

Variant development questions (Scottish_Clan_Wars)
Hi, I've looked at Spain in the classic map, and there are three territories: Spain, Spain (NC), and Spain (SC). The first has only land-links and the latter two have only sea/boat-links. I've recreated this in my map, but I don't think it's formatting the same as Spain in the classic map. How do I make a North/South coast divide?

Maybe we should switch to phpBB..?
As the our current forum has it's limitations (no subforums, no search) I'm thinking about switching to phpBB (like on webdip).
Are there any objections, things to keep in mind?

Forming Games: Number of Players Needed
Forming games used to include a status line that said something like "X players out of Y still needed". Why did this message go away? I thought it was a useful indication of how close a game was either to starting, or to being cancelled due to not enough players signing up.

Little League vDip Game
In deliberate, though non-antagonistic, contrast to Amby's thread (and to get other people about thinking about making other threads for other bands), let's have a game for folks in the 500-1k vDip points range.

To keep things quick, let's grab the first seven folks and play a non-anon game of classic, with full press and 36-hour phases.

Variants and Copyright
I've seen some other sites have Game of Throne and Lord of the Ring Diplomacy variants. Is there a particular reason why vDip doesn't? I know in the past postal zine there were even Star Wars and Star Trek ones. Is this a copyright issue or just no one has put one together?

Classic- Caspian Variant?
Now I don't know how to code or make maps, so I likely can't do this, but I do think it would be entertaining for someone to create a map based upon this discussion (http://www.diplomacy-archive.com/resources/humour/coast_moscow.htm) where Moscow can build fleets and have them move through Sev (perhaps by means of the Volga-Don Canal?)

Variants to Port to webDip
I won Zultar's (webDip co-owner) New Year's prize, which is getting to pick three variants, of which they'll pick one (if possible) to port over. I don't play many variants, so I'm asking the experts:
What are three popular, stable variants that don't have much—if anything, in terms of special rules, (basically nothing that involves messing with the adjudicator, since it is a big, scary, complex bit of code)—that you would want to see included on webDiplomacy.net?

Appears to be allowed, although it really shouldn't be
Apparently, if you take over a country in CD in one game, then CD yourself, you can later take over a different CD'd country in the same game. Perhaps this should be disallowed? I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts.
