Unique convoy situation question
I never thought this was possible until someone suggested it, but I have yet to try it. Say you have an army in Spain, a fleet in Marseilles, and a fleet in Gulf of Lyon. The fleet in Marseilles moves to Spain and the army in Spain moves to Marseilles via convoy of Gulf of Lyon. I know in normal Diplomacy rules that two units can't switch locations like that, but does the convoy change the route the army takes at all to allow this?

Replacement(s)
I have decided to take an indefinite hiatus from Diplomacy for IRL reasons.

I need a permanent replacement for four gunboat games three full press games and two public press games. PM if interested.

One gunboat left. I still need replacements for three full press games and two public press games.

If your Hiatus in indefinite, maybe we should actully put the Players into your Position instead of just using Country Switch, so that your Substitute Players may gain (or lose) Points in the process? Otherwise the games will be transferred back to you after they end.

I disagree... if that's going to be the case, GOD, I don't want to babysit a losing position and get penalized for it and I will have to reconsider my offer.

The guys volunteering don't necessarily get a choice of refusing - and for the sake of the losing games, it's better to have an active player than a CD. Furthermore, you would be changing the rules for the guys already in place.

And I'm guessing, but resolution of Uber's RL stuff is impossible to forecast...
GOD (1664 D Mod (B))

Obviously. I wouldn't force Switch the positions anyway, but I'd like to give the Players the Option.
Chumbles (1065 D)

Well, then offer your replacement Players to Switch the positions "for real", getting a Rating at the end of the game and put a post in the mod Forum with the Players and games in question :)

And good luck to you, whatever you are up to!

That is perfectly understandable and that shows another problem caused by points and ranking systems : instead of simply taking a possibly strategically lost position for fun and in order to help a game keep its integrity, players will also consider the impact on their rating : even though they would happily get undeserved points for a position that they did not create, they are reluctant to lose points because of a disaster that they did not cause.

The solution is easy : let's get rid of those Ego points and, in the meantime, let's only play unrated games.

I would neither accept an unearned punishment for taking over a hopeless position, nor would I accept an unearned reward for taking over a strong position. Caretaking is simply caretaking, for the sake of keeping the game going as smoothly as possible and saving the other players from a game-warping disruption.
GOD (1664 D Mod (B))
29 Aug 18 UTC
Well in this case it's like taking over a CD position, only before the CD happened...
ubercacher16 (1347 D)
30 Aug 18 UTC
It's up to the replacement/caretaker what they want to do.
ubercacher16 (1347 D)
30 Aug 18 UTC
Only one game left.

I know it's hard to find someone since there are so many people in the game already.

Quick Rules Question
In Classic, I am confident if an army in Portugal Attacks Spain while an Army in Spain attacks Portugal, both will fail. Would this rule still apply if the it were instead a fleet on the northern coast attacking Portugal and a fleet in Portugal moving to the southern coast?

Our game bugged out, and mods are looking at it. What do we do and what will happen?
So basically, We were playing World War IV 6.2. It was the first time we got our community of players, both on a subreddit and a discord, to play a big 36 player game. Didn't start 100% the best the first year, some players didn't get the rules and ended up starting with 2 units instead of 3.

I wonder why VDip is not using Territory Diagram to reveal the dinamics of territory occupation in time. Now it's working rather good. But for maps with neutrals it still has several bugs. We use this module on Diplomail. Please check: https://ibb.co/mFZF3o

Known World 901 question re rebuilt armies
The variant page says that "This map is build anywhere and has neutral standing armies that disband when dislodged, but will be rebuild if the relevant Home Supply Center is vacant and unowned during the build-phase in autumn." but looking at completed games, I don't see the standing armies getting rebuilt. Does this mean I need to always occupy my own SCs in the fall or else they turn back into neutral standing armies? Can someone explain this to me?

Mistake in Known World 901 variant
In "Known World 901" we have Principality of Kiev (short - Russia). But it's a mistake which I have fixed when I did the php-adaptation to Western Known World 901 variant. The power must be called as Kievan Rus (short - Rus). It's not Russia at all. So it must be also fixed in Known World 901 variant I think.
