Feature Request: Friends List
Similar to how the site already has functionality for muting and blocking other players, we should be able to add them to a friends list so that tracking them down to send PMs is more convenient. It would also make hosting games with players you know you enjoy playing with much easier. I don’t believe that this feature is currently in the issue tracker, and it seems like it would be very easy to implement given the current muting and blocking features already in place.

Imbalanced map?
It seems as if several maps need some balancing work. For example, England* v Turkey is skewed toward England, and in Rinascimento, the French are virtually at the hands of other players’ wills.

Austrian Succession: New and Improved
After four years, War of Austrian Succession is nearing completion! Please come help test it so that I can perfect the balance.
It would be very helpful if we could have no NMRs for the first few phases. http://lab.diplomail.ru/board.php?gameID=64
Safari (1510 D (B))
05 Jan 18 UTC
To clarify, this test game is being held on the lab testing site http://lab.diplomail.ru/index.php.

War of Austrian Succession is a variant designed to be a little trickier than the average diplomacy game at the beginning -- you'll have to be cutting deals from turn one to capitalize on your country's potential. I'd love to hear your feedback!
gorgeous map.
will be curious to see how the piedmont-savoy position plays out, and how often Austria gets to hang on to Milan. The surrounding threat of Spain would make me (as the P-S player) very prone to cut whatever-anyever deal I can with Spain in the beginning. Still, France, Austria and the Ottomans are a factor too, and while the P-S position looks very challenging, it's probably a very fun dynamic for an active negotiator.

@BenjaminHester nice thoughts. I think Piedmont-Sardinia is an interesting one as well. It's made a bit easier by the fact that Spain doesn't get any units in Italy until the first round of builds. Also of note is the island of Sardinia starting with an army, so they have to decide what to do with that.

Apologies for missing my moves on the lab - I'm getting a bug that says "Error: Column 'ip' cannot be null" which has been preventing me from logging in. Anyone know a fix? (I've gotten around it before by accessing the site from a different network but I don't have access to one currently)
Hey Safari - Flame let us know on the DiploLab about you having log-in issues. I wonder about the nature of the error: hopefully others here may be able to advise.

Since it's a test game you could, you know, reduce the minimum SCs to win. It would make the game faster and thus more attractive to more people.

I struggled with that for months on end. You can get around this dreadful error by disabling IPv6 networking on your computer when you want to access the lab.

On Windows, you can do it by going to the Network and Sharing Center, click on the connection under 'active network', go to properties, and uncheck Internet Protocol version 6.
Enriador (1491 D (B))

Oh, thanks @Safari! Do I have tk activate that protocol again after turning it off? Is it safe?

Hope it works for you Enriador. Yes, you do have to activate it again, and yes, it is safe. Essentially it's just making your computer use the older type of IP address, which the majority of the world still uses anyway.
Safari (1510 D (B))
20 Feb 18 UTC
Vauban, I'm not sure why that would be happening. You should contact Flame, the owner of the lab.

The problem with disabling IPv6 comes when using corporate computers on high security networks that use it.

Hello, I have a problem. I am going away for a few days (tomorrow), and I don't know how to quit the game I am in. There are 36 players, so I cannot reasonably ask for all of them to pause --- besides, there isn't enough time --- so I am stuck.

Playing with fewer players
Hi all!

I know this is probably a noob question, but I need to resolve this issue: is it possible to start a game with fewer players than those normally expected? I tried it once with the Rinascimento variant, but the game didn't launch just because there weren't 12 players.
Thank you in advance!

If the "Gunboat", "Public Press", or "Per Rulebook" rules are employed, shouldn't the game be automatically "Anon" as well? If it weren't, then players could just PM each other, defeating the purpose.

Question about social norms for players
In a large game, a reliable player asked the mods to extend the game for Easter. The request was general and largely in the name of other player: "Hey guys, it's Easter, and in a big game, some people will probably be traveling to see family." The extension was granted, and requests like that are likely to be accepted.
