Winning target SCs don't work?
I just tried to create a Classic game with the winning number of SCs as 34 and the site just didn't want to do it. Is this a bug, or a system put in place?

Oli won.
On Imperial Civilization's off-topic thread (link inside), there was a brief stint of Second to Last Person to Post Wins. Now that the thread is closed, Oli won.

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.

Changes to make PPSC better
Currently, the PPSC system rewards points in a solo. It has a number of perverse effects on gameplay. In the subsequent post(s), I will outline changes that could reform PPSC and reduce its detrimental impact.

Two winners in a game?
What happens if a game is set with winning conditions lower than 50% of all SCs and two players reach that goal in the same season? Is it a tie? Does the game continue until one has more?

Illogical Rating Assignments
Take a look at the following link:
https://vdiplomacy.com/hof.php?gameID=37006

Now, you can see the "brains" of the rating system. As you can see, the system deducts less from a player who CD'd than a player who kept playing and survived. Why? Shouldn't players be held accountable for their CDs?

I have a retreat due. There is only one valid retreat location. I click the "Ready" button, but it's not saving the retreat. We're playing with rulebook press, so there is no "save" button currently.

Please avoid spamming on the forum.
I'm have trouble finding a balanced way to make this map, but I'm gonna make it good one way or another. I was thinking that I should probably include several skeletal systems instead of just one.
If I spam in this post does it notify everyone else

No, it does not send a notification to everyone, however, what it does is constantly keep this post at the top of the forum, hindering the ability of people to see other posts with other discussions.

Given that this appears to be somewhat of a "private" chat intended for those of you who know each other, a more private communication channel would be more appropriate than clogging the public forum. Perhaps, email? Text? Discord? WhatsApp? I'm sure there's plenty of ways to have this conversation in a more appropriate place.
I understand what you're saying and I'll tone down the amount of things I post here, but this is not meant to be a private discussion and I fully encourage anyone who wants to join in on this joke to do so.
@ubercacher16 is an ass.

These BONE facts were brought to you by https://www.healthline.com/health/fun-facts-about-the-skeletal-system#3

Bones are filled with a spongy tissue
Bone marrow is a spongy substance that’s found inside large bones like your hips, pelvis, and femur. Bone marrow houses stem cells. Stem cells are responsible for producing many of your body’s most important cells, including blood, brain, heart, and bone cells.

The body has two types of bone
You may think of bone as a hard, dense material, but only one type of bone is like this. This dense, hard bone is called cortical bone. Cortical bones are primarily the “structure” bones.

The second type, trabecular bone, is soft and spongy. It’s often found inside large bones and in your pelvis, ribs, and skull. Though it’s less dense than cortical bone, it’s still quite hard and protective.

Bones are designed to take a beating
Yes, bones can break. But they’re designed to stand up to daily wear and tear. For example, some bones must be able to absorb two to three times your body weight in force. They must also be resilient. You take 1 to 3 million steps per year, so bones are built to take the constant use.

More than half your bones are in your hands and feet
You have 206 bones in total, and 106 of them are in your hands and feet.

One bone isn’t connected to any other bones
The hyoid bone, which is in your throat, is the only bone that doesn’t connect to a joint. The hyoid is responsible for holding your tongue in place.

Most people have 12 ribs, but some have 13
A 13th rib is rare — only 1 percent of people are born with it. In most people, this extra rib, called a cervical rib, can cause medical issues like neck pain. For that reason, people born with this extra rib often have it removed.

The biggest joint in your body is your knee
At the knee joint, three bones connect: your femur, tibia, and patella. Those three large bones require an equally large joint to connect them. That’s why your knee is the largest joint in your body.

A skeletal system isn’t that common in the world
Humans are part of a group of creatures called vertebrates. That means our bones are covered by a system of tissue and skin. Only 10 percent of the world’s animals (humans included) are vertebrates.
The other 90 percent are invertebrates. Their bones are on the outside of their body.

Bones are strong, but teeth are stronger
The enamel on your teeth, which are considered part of your skeletal system, is actually stronger than bones. Enamel protects the delicate nerves and tissue inside your teeth. Inch for inch, your teeth can take more wear and tear than any of your other bones.

Bones are natural healers
When you fracture a bone, your body will go to work producing new bone cells and helping heal the break. A cast or brace just ensures the bone heals straight so you don’t have more problems in the future.

"I understand what you're saying and I'll tone down the amount of things I post here, but this is not meant to be a private discussion and I fully encourage anyone who wants to join in on this joke to do so."

As for the understanding and toning down part, that is quite obviously not the case.

As for the not meant to be a private discussion part: there is basically two people writing here (except for some who basically state their distaste and two comments about a possible variant). Therefore the conversation happening here might as well be private.

As for the encouraging to join this joke part I honestly don't know how this is supposed to be a joke, except for genuine trolling that takes its purpose from being annoying rather than funny. Copy&Pasting info from one website and putting it into another unrelated one unnecessarily duplicates knowledge in a place where it will not be appreciated and just takes up space.
The lack of fun aspects that might legitimate this thread result out of a lack of creativity and context in this redundant spreading of unasked and unnecessary information.

I would like to mute this thread, but as a mod I should keep my eye on things, so I have to put myself through this annoyance on a daily basis. We have the winning thread for random bullshittery, there is no need for this.

Please join a medical forum or use social media for this conversation, thank you.
I did tone it down, I put all my bone facts into one message instead of many over a drawn out period so that it would only count as one message in the thread

I was fine with this until it started being used for insulting other members.

"@ubercacher16 is an ass."

I've locked this thread. Your group has a custom game ETERNAL BONE that has 45 day phases, since the only 2 people posting in this thread are both in that game, you're now going to need to use that for your group discussions.
