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.

WWII Tournament
I would like to start a tournament. I've seen the Known World and 1v1 tournaments, and those are great fun. So why not apply it to World War II? I'm still working out the details, but I'll post some details.

Cold War Tournament
I am looking to start a rated Cold War tournament consisting of group and knockout stages. Groups of 4 will face each other twice, once as each country. The top two (or three, pending interest) from each group will move on to the knockout stage, with each matchup lasting two games. Users will play as each country once. If tied 1-1, an additional two games are played until a winner is determined.

RSS feed for Notifications (discussion)
Hi everyone.
Don't miss PMs or game-notifications with your personal RSS-feed.
In your settings-page you can create a unique link that updates with your "Notices"-tab on your homescreen.

Feel free to post ideas for improvements or suggestions.
What's your favorite RSS-client for your platform of choice?

I have been using 'Read' for Android and 'RSS Feed Reader' by feeder.co on Chrome. Both are simple and do their job well enough.

I have also tested 'Feedly', which has app and browser versions. It's really good, but the sheer amount of features was a bit too much for me.

All in all an excellent addition to vDip! Thanks Oli.

I've long wanted to have select diplomacy push notifications for my phone. I'm trying to combine the RSS feature with a reader app to make that happen. I'm testing the "ticker" app or android shortly, but I was curious: Does anyone have RSS readers that can _selectively_ send push notifications to your phone for certain feeds?

Anyone tried IFTTT with the rss module? Looks like the most useful tool here.
teacon7 (1612 D)
Sun 11 Feb UTC
Okay so I didn't know that existed, but IFTTT is *exactly* what I was looking for.

How often does the RSS feed update? Despite playing several years of a game, the vdip RSS feed hasn't updated for any of it. Are there limits on how often/when/why the feed updates?
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
Sun 11 Feb UTC
The feed is dynamic. It shows always the last 20 notices.

Correction: The last 50.

Also trying the IFTTT app with RSS module. Made a custom applet.
But don't have any notification yet. The app says it may take several hours before working so I guess I'll wait and see.
Oli, do the notifications work for you?
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
Sun 11 Feb UTC
Did fix a lot of validation-errors tonight.
Should work now for most RSS-readers (including IFTTT -> at least it works perfect for me so far ... :-)

I set something up on IFTTT last night, and played several years of a game. Nothing updated and nothing updated... must have been waiting on Oli's error resolution. I got about 50something notifications at 11:13am today. Now the IFTTT service appears to be updating just fine - it takes a minute or so to register the change, but that's not a big deal unless you're playing a live game.

Thanks to Oli and anyone else who made this a reality! You all are the best.
Oli (977 D Mod (P))

IFTTT usually updates every 15 minutes. So I won’t rely on it for a live game. :-)

Can't send press during build phase?
Hi, during one of my games, I seem to not be able to send press during build phase? I have been away from the site for a few years, so is this a new feature/rule I'm unaware of or is there something wrong with the game I'm in?

Email notifications?
Does vDiplomacy not have an option to send email notifications upon important game events?

I just recently set up a game, then came back to check on it a couple days later only to find that I'd NMR'd it without even knowing. I couldn't find anything in my email, even in Spam or Trash.

WTA vs Draw-Disvaluated Scoring
What about adding Draw-Disvaluated Scoring to vDip?

It's a mix of Calhamer Scoring (aka Winner-Takes-All) with Draw-Zero Scoring, and has the fortunate effect of pushing players towards a solo unless a draw is absolutely necessary. Solos work like in WTA, but draws are different.

PPSC vs SoS
I couldn’t find the answer in Help.
I know PPSC means in a solo the points are allocated based on supply centre count while in a draw it reverts to an equal split of points like DSS/WTA
For SoS over on WebDip, in a draw the points are allocated on a sum of Squares principle. But Help section doesn’t say what happens in a solo. Same method or reverts to winner takes all? I’m assuming SoS whether draw or solo but checking
Thanks
