Question about available retreating options
The game is at http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=181409.

Turkey has dislodged Russia's F Rum. In that same turn, F Rum-Bla bounced off F Ank-Bla. Why does Russia have the options to submit a retreat order?

vdiplomacy login problems
Apparently my username doesn't seem to exist on vdiplomacy. I have tried contacting the mods about this but I have received no response months later. Does anyone here know what I can do, or if I am allowed to create another account identical to this one on vdip?

Private game needing players
Hey guys me and my friends are trying to host a private game of diplomacy because we have a 24 hour train ride. Our skill levels are mixed with many of the players only playing their third or fourth game while a couple of us have been playing for years. If anyone is willing to join gameID=181450 let me know and I'll give you the password. The only stipulation is you need to be able to chat on kik messenger. Thank you!

How do you end a drawn game when 1 player doesn't vote to draw.
http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=180889#gamePanel
I am playing France, the Italian player won't vote draw. Nobody has moved positions for maybe 4, 5 or 6 moves. It's a pain to keep entering the same set of orders, it is obviously a draw. What to do?

They were primarily Latino, held Mexican flags, and held signs like "I am not a rapist or drug dealer" and "I stand with Undocumented Migrants". It's pretty obvious what they're protesting.

"Have you watched the recent riots by advocates for illegal immigration at Trump rallies?"
Interesting, were those 'advocates' migrants themselves? the way you put it, they might as well have been those gringos that like to hire illegal immigrants?

^Oh, sorry, hadn't seen your last comment.
Still, they could as well have been legal migrants

"The same is true for Latinos in the US, especially for recent arrivals."

Hardly. Latino "success," as if it's a bad thing, is based around whether they are here legally and whether they are educated here. It is also dependent on whether they are good English speakers in most cases. They are making their success possible through these things, not simply because there are more of them. They are fighting and assimilating simultaneously. Undocumented people don't have these opportunities until the second generation at the earliest, and even then it can be very difficult because they still aren't citizens. This is my whole point - citizenship is an opportunity for success in America as opposed to barebones survival, which, for some, seems to be an acceptable fate.

"Considering the vaccination deniers, I wouldn't be so sure"

Find me an example of a disease down their that causes massive death up here. Maybe west nile, but still, not even remotely close to the degree that smallpox decimated natives.

"The US has been quite stable compared to its neighbors to the south, but allowing people from those countries to enter unchecked will make the US the same as Latin American countries."

That shows a serious lack of pride and confidence in your own country. It's hard to claim you are a patriot when you think illegally low-waged factory workers in the South - employed almost exclusively by legal Americans, probably white Americans - are going to overrun your country, as if they have any power at all or care at all. All they're doing is trying to make it by and living day by day in fear of being sent back to Mexico and no longer being able to provide for their loved ones.

Trump's being protested by most of this country. People in the Republican party are protesting him. Stop framing.

1.Well, may you know that Chile and Uruguay are not sooo bad, bolivians tend to migrate there, and no one cries. Same happens with Mexico City, whe I live, so I can tell you you can live pretty well here, even when migrants from hellish Guerrero state keep coming in considerable numbers.

2. allowing people to enter legally does not necessarily mean there wouldn't be regulation

" It is also dependent on whether they are good English speakers in most cases."
^^^^^
I can't speak any form of Spanish despite being descended from both a Mexican immigrant and a Spanish immigrant. When they got married, they refused to teach their children any Spanish so that they could give their kids a leg up by primarily being English speaking Americans.

I worked with a Hungarian immigrant a year or so ago who had a PhD and worked in one of Hungary's top pharmaceutical branches before he came here. He's a janitor here because his English is extremely broken at best. Until he learns English and is fluent in it, which he will be at some point, his degree and expertise in pharmaceuticals are both useless.

Our illegal migrants mostly aren't coming from well-off areas such as the ones you have mentioned.
