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.

1900 for vDip: Progress Report (ongoing)
As mentioned in another thread, I've been working on the code and assets necessary to port Baron M. Powell's variant 1900 to vDip and/or webDip.

In order to keep myself accountable in some fashion to actually complete this task, and not just talk about it, I've created a small project plan where I can mark my progress.

Hello!
I have been banned from webDiplomacy because Zultar wants it to be a safe space for neo-Nazis and other white supremacists.

You nice people will have to put up with me instead (until I get banned here, I guess).

I've been Boursed!!! 2016
Hi all, when Amby and I were recording our recent podcast (diplomacygames.com) the topic of Bourse came up, and I got really excited and thought that I would try to get another game of this variant running...

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

To Everyone in Furnace of Affliction
I'm really sorry, as I was trying to fix the Indonesia Build bug the game sent everyone into CD and cancelled itself. This was because I forgot about another bug - if you enter all holds, it counts as an NMR even if saved, so when I tried to advance the game 2 phases it assumed everyone had NMR'd twice (even though I'd set hold orders for everyone).

obsolete Sengoku variant
Hi all, designer of Sengoku here. I would love to get the latest version of Sengoku in use on this system, as it is much more balanced. Found here: http://dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Sengoku
Even if the DP system, can't be used, the version at http://nairenvorbeck.angelfire.com/ is still better than the one in use currently. Poor Mori needs a fair chance :-) Anyone willing/able to help me get these implemented?

Over the past few weeks i've noticed that there is an awfully lot of NMR's and CDs happening. Many of these take place in a later stage of the game with no extended phase in place.

In-game messaging with multiple players without Global Chat
Hi everyone,
I was wondering if there is a way to send messages to multiple players without using the Global Chat. It would very practical for players that are in a 2+ people alliances as they don't need to rewrite everything again for each ally. Is there such a thing yet? If not, I hope a developper passes by and makes a note of this. Thanks!
Mercy (1029 D)
Sun 06 Aug UTC
Unfortunately, there is no such feature. Since the limiting factor for the creation of new features is not the lack of ideas, but rather the lack of developers, I don't think such a feauture will be implemented any time soon, unfortunately.
In the meantime, you could use Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v instead of rewriting your messages.

Just why would you tell ALL your allies the SAME thing?
Har har har,
Gotta divide them before they ally you
Vauban (1006 D)
Sun 06 Aug UTC
Why? Well, what if I planned an Alliance that has the purpose of eliminating everyone except the Allied players to finish on a draw to share the coins. In order to coordinate our attacks to be successful, it's much easier to a "group chat" instead of copy and pasting
Vauban (1006 D)
Sun 06 Aug UTC
Even though I agree with you your Holiness but in the above mentioned case, I find a "group chat" rather practical
Vauban (1006 D)
Sun 06 Aug UTC
Isn't there a developper around here that has the power to do this?
No. The developers can develop, but they can't release to the site, plus there is a laundry list of improvements to be done first. Finally, all the developers here do so out of love for the game. They don't get paid and they don't work here. This sis strictly a contribution of love. So don't harangue them to do things. Remember, you paid nothing for the site.
Vauban (1006 D)

Yes, I understand. It is such a shame that this website isn't known enough. It has great potential. I have been looking for something like this for ages but the only sites I found were using emails to dispatch orders and didn't have such an advanced playing software such as the one we use here. Anyway, I hope that in a few years vDiplomacy will be at its full strength!
Mercy (1029 D)
Mon 07 Aug UTC
VDiplomacy is not the only site for online Diplomacy with this software, though. There is also webdiplomacy.net. Webdiplomacy.net has a larger user base than vDiplomacy, but on vDiplomacy one can play more variants; that is what the v stands for.

@Chumbles: It's still a very different thing to send multiple players the exact same message than _claiming_ to having sent the same message. But I'm definitely very happy with the site as is, just wanted to point out the difference :)

This is a feature I mentioned for development here a few times over the years, but as far as I know, was never taken up in anyway. It was always a great feature of the old electronic Diplomacy Judges and helped make press with multi-partner alliances more efficient, especially in large games.

@Vauban & ubercacher16....As far as I am aware, that is half of semi-well-known joke about "ladies" rather than a quote by Talleyrand. Warren Buffett got a bit of abuse from "feminists" for publicly re-telling such a "sexist" old joke a few months ago.

Asked "What's the difference between a diplomat and a lady?" the reply came:

If a diplomat says, "yes," he means "Maybe."
If a diplomat says, "Maybe," he means "No."
If a diplomat says, "No," he's no diplomat.

But on the other hand,

If a lady says, "No," she means "Maybe."
If a lady says, "Maybe," she means "Yes."
If a lady says, "Yes," she's no lady.

@gopher27: I am pretty sure it's from Talleyrand. What I wrote is not a word to word quote but it is along these lines. Maybe Buffet used it for his own purposes.

Public messages hidden from non-players
I noticed public messages in games are hidden from non-players, even for finished games. Does anyone know if this was a deliberate decision on vDip? On webDip these are visible to non-players, which is interesting for looking at the player dynamic or end of game commentary.
