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.

Regarding the idea in the "idea" thread I posted a few days ago. I created the server. I'll be occasionally hosting vdip games on it to help them start faster if anyone is interested.

Standards of Acceptable Kibitzing
Are there any defined standards of acceptable vs unacceptable kibitzing/commentary by players during a vDiplomacy game? For example, no rascist or sexist comments? Is there a code of conduct?

idea
i suppose i could ask this here. im thinking of creating a diplomacy discord server. one of the games on it will be vDIp along with conspiracy, web dip, and diplicity. would you guys be interested in joining for the vdip section? it certainly would not be anything like a full fledged Vdip server. just something to help set up fun games and fill games like these. i just want to gauge the interest of the community first.

An issue with the interactive map
I note that in the interactive map it's not uncommon for the icon that cancels the order to hide the territory I'd like to select. I think this reduces interactive map usability especially in maps with smaller territories (Imperial Dip is a clear example). A simple solution would be to move the icon further away from the selected unit. I don't know how complicated it would be to implement this change tho.

Is this metagaming?
Let's say that through experience of playing in the same game as someone, I have noticed that a player has been very untrustworthy and deceiving. Am I allowed to use that knowledge in another game, and remember to be cautious around that player? Or is it metagaming?

gameID=45898 <---- that is unrelated. Just want to keep this anonymous.

Voteing to Concede to a Team
I'm just wondering if it would be possible for the DRAW votes and CONCEDE votes to be used together. If two people have been working together and will clearly win, right now, if everyone else wants to concede, only one of the victors can get the points. If DRAW could be used in conjunction, then the points could be split between DRAW voters. Obviously this would require good faith of those conceding to not choose DRAW.

RSS Feed for New Games?
Does the site support RSS feeds for new games? If not via the site, is there a way to do it via 3rd party?

I'm aware of the RSS feed for notices specific to myself. I like this feature. However, if I'm looking for new games I'd like to be able to apply filters and create an RSS feed for myself - for example if I was only interested in WTA games...whenever there was new posted WTA game it would go to my feed. Thoughts, workarounds?

You don't want to see this map
https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/457218478659731465/770001163185553418/diplomap.png

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could play this map? I figured it would probably be here but can't find it in the variants. (I didn't make this but I'm a big fan of it).
You can pretty much play it anywhere, since this is Standard Dip, if I am not mistaken.

I am annoyed at that map because Sweden is not green, even though it is amphibious in the same way as Kiel. Otherwise, it is a great map.
I wish it actually showed the SC's

@Mercy, Sweden is right in yellow. It is a land province with one coast.
Other amusing map gimmicks out there, not really variants, which are topologically equivalent to Standard include maps that are

a. inside out, so that Switzerland is a ring on the edges of the map, and

b. projected on other geography -- in one case the British Supply Centers are located on Crete.

I believe this is the map you're referring to? It's missing Heligoland Bight, but other than that it's the same as the Classic map.
Yeah, that is the one I mentioned as "b". To correct it, Hel could be added easily enough.

@CCR: If Sweden is a land province with one coast, then by the same token Kiel, Denmark and Constantinople are also land provinces with one coast.

I agree with Mercy. Sweden should be colored green to match the other three similar land provinces with only one coast, where a fleet can enter from a sea space on one side of the province, and depart to a sea space on the other side of the province.
CCR (1783 D)
02 Nov 20 UTC
Since Den is already considered a sea province (canal), Swe doesn't have to be.
Macca573 (1249 D)

No. Canals are land territories. See, Bulgaria and Constantinople.
Bulgaria? Do you mean Kiel?

Mercy (2180 D (B))

@CCR: I am thinking in programming terms and I am curious how you'd explain to an computer program that Sweden is not amphibious, but Kiel is, despite their situations being identical (both border Denmark and both border a sea province on either side of Demark).
CCR (1783 D)
02 Nov 20 UTC
I assumed the if you don't specify that bul has two coasts, it would be like Sweden (both green)
