For some reason, I can't send messages anymore. Could before, can't now. I've never run into this before. Is this a bug or by design?

There's a live game called "First <1 hour known world GB"

It has 11 players. Obviously needs 15 players, but there is no join button!
Anyone know what's up?

Forum rules question
So I have a philosophical question that game up because of a decision in a game that is ongoing. I can ask without revealing the game or having any conversation about the positions. Would that be forbidden conversation about an ongoing game?

Site addition?
There's a game mode in VDiplomacy that allows you to choose your country as long as no one else has picked it. I obviously don't know the first part of adding something to a site like this, but it'd be a cool add on, thoughts?

How would the order for picking a country be determined?
slypups (1380 D)
05 Jan 17 UTC
I like the random assignment right now that tries to give you countries you haven't played, but this would be an interesting option in game set-up, and valuable for those that wanted to play test-strategy games with friends from certain positions. Could be a random draw for picking order and have a first pre-phase of one turn length for picking positions.
VillageIdiot (4331 D)

PlayDip has three options for country selection. Random (like here), First Come/First Served (like your asking), and then Preferred Country where you can make your first three preferences and it hands out based on preference but coin flips for people who have same preferences.

I don't know if i'd say it adds or detracts anything overall, just an additional novelty option. Sometimes you get first-come/first-served games waiting in limbo as it waits for somebody willingly wishing to jump into one of the commonly less desirable nations.
Deeply_Dippy (406 D)

Preferred Country would be an interesting addition.

If it could be linked to FCFS (i.e. allocation is be highest available preference in the order that players joined the game) might actually encourage folks to sign up to games more quickly.

Although I'm new to this site, I've been playing FTF on and off for 30 years. In my view, no countries are undesirable; just different.

orathaic (1009 D (B))

Webdip has a long history of threads going south...

@Dd, Addiction, the opposite of addiction is connection. Webdip facilitates a kind of connection... Not the deepest connection perhaps, but a connection with actual people, rather than drugs/gambling/falling off talk things.

So... There is that.

Porting variants from vdip is fairly easy. I don't know if it is desirable.
Nynzal (100 D)

I like the idea of choosing the country, but I think FCFS will have problems to start public games. Would be interesting to know which countries are prefered.
I personly like to have a random country, at least most of the times, but if there is a hybrid system where I still get a random one and everyone who wants a specific on gets a slightly higher chance.
For example all the random countries are assigned and after that with some kind of priority matching.
WyattS14 (15 D)
06 Jan 17 UTC
I'm a little confused. Is VDip in a sort of cooperation with WebDip or are they completely separate?
CommanderByron (654 D (S))

Choose your country does seem pretty worthwhile. Think of how many tournaments we could do where you have to play each country once :)
orathaic (1009 D (B))
06 Jan 17 UTC
Webdip is an open source project. Vdip is a sister site built on the same code-base. When new features are added to one they are often available to he ported to the other with relative ease...

Vdip exists because a decision was made to limit the number of variants in webdip, allowing vdip carbe out a noche for variants, previously there were also olidip and goondip (though i think olidip was renamed vdip, as phpdip was renamed webdip...)

And of course playdiplomacy, which has a sligthly more comicated relationship.
Hellenic Riot (1533 D Mod (G))
06 Jan 17 UTC
The problem with porting features from vDip is that quite often, the code is... not as robust as the webDip code. Oli openly admits this, and he quite often hacks the code to make things possible. Meaning that porting features over can sometimes have some unpleasant and unwanted side effects.

Photoshop or real? Wishing it was real. Also seeing a retreat from Tyrolia to Albania on there and a fleet moving from Gulf of Bothnia to Irish Sea. Best of course are those three attempts to go through the wormhole to Wales.
No, that's a regular Ankara Crescent game for you.
Where did Ankara Crescent even come from anyways? I tried googling it to find out, and only found this thread: thread=1301889, which makes absolutely no sense.

Ankara cresent was formulated from applying the rule sets from several differet variants onto one in a forum based game. This lead to the most complicated of games possible and is effectively unplayable. I highly recommend you avoid it.

The Vdip version (ie non-forum game actual version, which the above is a screenshot of) is actually much etter, both in playtesting and in playability.
Deinodon (121 D (B))

While orathaic is mostly right, you have to take into consider the Bulgarian variant form 1973, when combined with the Oxford addendums from WorldDipCon XV, that is basically when the game really came into it's own. I've never played with more than eight people, though, that ever understood the permutations in their purist form.

Fleet transforming to Army or vice versa.
I'm in a Known World 901 game, and it allows fleets/armies to take a turn to transform to the other on a coastal SC. Maybe I'm blind, but I can't find the rules for this action mentioned anywhere, so I don't know how it works. Can I support an army transforming into a fleet successfully, or does the unit not count as holding? For that matter, I'm told that the unit being attacked cancels the transformation, is this true in all cases?

Pacifist Dip
A while ago, I participated in a game titled: "UN II". It was a slow-paced world map that had the catch of being pacifist and acted like the UN. Does anyone know if there is another one? Or if there is enough people interested it would be great if we can start another.
