NEW WORLD RECORD
after only 4 hours, #alternativefacts is already being overused, just beating out the previous record held by #fakenews.

we fully expect to endure this for the next few days, until it to dies, or develops into something else (such as #bullshitnews)

Another clarifying thread...
A unit can cut support if it itself is only tapped as well, but it does NOT cut support if it is dislodged by two completely different units, right?

Convoy confusion
Can a fleet convoy an army and also provide support to another unit?

Paraphrase: have I been playing this game wrong for the last 20 years?
Matticus13 (1159 D)

It can only do one action at a time. It can either convoy or support, but not both.
Matticus is correct. Each unit can only do one thing at a time. Do you have a more specific example, pastorlan? Perhaps a finished game ID in which you are confused?
pastoralan (100 D)
18 Jan 17 UTC
I can describe the situation without giving anything away. I planned to have a fleet convoy an army. Then I changed my mind. I changed the fleet's order to support without changing the army. When moves processed, they showed that the army had bounced. I would have expected it to show the army not moving at all.

That's a relief.
It shouldn't show a bounce. (Bouncing implies actively bouncing off of something)
The move just failed. On the map it shows the same as it would a bounce, but it's actually an invalid order, not a failed order.
Matticus13 (1159 D)
18 Jan 17 UTC
It will still show the army attempting to convoy to said territory. It will just have a fail designation (the red x) through the move arrow.
Matticus13 (1159 D)

Beat me to it this time PF.
Zybodia (355 D)

If, however, two other units also bounced in that territory, it will look identical to a third bounce on the order map.
slypups (1639 D)
18 Jan 17 UTC
Maybe it "bounced" with another invalid convoy move by someone else. Not a bounce.
pastoralan (100 D)

I won't share details to avoid identifying the game, but one of you have explained what happened.
pastoralan (100 D)

Thanks for the confirmation. It's nice to know that I'm not an idiot (today).
JECE (1322 D)

pastoralan: Technically you could still be an idiot. ;-) If an army is ordered to convoy to an adjacent coastal territory via convoy, but the convoy doesn't go through, the army will still move anyway (and thus may still cause a bounce).

More likely, though, you encountered a very old site error. I got a reply from site founder Kestas about it way back in November 2009:

Then there is the convoyed army cuts support for attack that dislodges the convoying fleet problem set. Those are fun.

I don't know if this has been suggested but:

Best way to learn code
I want to learn how to code, but am having trouble deciding where to start. Their are many free resources, online classes, boot camps, etc. I would prefer to teach myself, but lack the knowledge to know what language I should be learning first and so on. Any tips from the experienced code writers here on WebDip?

Stalemate Gaming
Is there a rule against holding a stalemate indefinitely even though the situation is clear? I think he's hoping the rest of us give up and leave, which if it isn't against the rules yet then it should be.

PPSC discussion thread:
I don't particularly care for PPSC. But saw that another thread was having this discussion as a sidebar and thought it fair to start a discussion thread. There is reasonable support for PPSC and regardless of the majority opinion the minority's should be heard.

Abolish Sum-Of-Squares scoring
Ok, so I understand some people don't like PPSC and don't want it back. I disagree. BUT let's talk about SOS instead. It's a terrible scoring system and is directly contrary to the rulebook.
