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.

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.

Reliability rating
I'm having trouble understanding the new system.

So I miss a turn excused, fine. I miss another still excused, again fine. Yes my games are horribly stuffed up and I'll probably loose them. Not to mention the offence caused to others playing.

After 28 days my reliability starts to improve again. Right? 5%

What of joining games. There use to be a reward for joining games. Is that lost now?

Go to your profile, in the bottom right click "Reliability Explained" I made an entire page with a detailed breakdown explaining how your RR is calculated and how long penalties last for.

So with a temporary ban wouldn't that make you miss more turns. That would make the whole thing even worse. I Understand not making game or joining games but a ban for several days what happens to game your currently in if your banned?
Also no mention of taking over from CD's is that no longer a way to rebuild your rating.

Is it normal if I get an excused NMR taken away and get no orders put in?

A temporary ban prevents you from taking over positions you CD, giving a more reliable player the chance to take over your spot in the game that you've missed multiple times. You don't get any more missed turns from that though. And it doesn't prevent you from entering your orders in other games you're playing in.

Taking over CD positions for better RR was only ever a thing on vDip, so I have no idea if Oli will incorporate that. It doesn't make much sense to me though unless you play reliably taking over a position means nothing.

@sky I don't understand your question.

While the situation you're in sounds painful, it also seems rather appropriate even if heavy handed. It may stress the importance of not allowing this to happen again. This isn't your first experience with missing turns. I'm not sure what an excused NMR is, but maybe that's something new. NMRs destroy entire games, not just the position of the absent player. Repeated behavior of this kind warrants some action by the moderators similar to the way a bank stops cashing your checks when you have no money left in your account. If there's a rational explanation for your absences, I'm sure that the moderators will listen to you. They've been extremely understanding over the years with far more reckless players. The frustration of waiting to play again is your penance for botching the games you neglected. Shit happens, and we all miss a turn occasionally. I hope everything is okay in your world.

In addition, if one takes over a CD, they don't get the default 1 excused missed turn, and start off with 0 excused missed turns. I now feel wronged.

Manifest Destiny map issue
There seems to be a mistake in the Manifest Destiny map (fleets can move between one particular sea region and an inland region, which isn’t documented as being intentional and seems to just be a problem). Is the forum the right place to report these sorts of issues?

1 SC, 0 units: a bug with the new system
Currently, I'm playing in a game where I currently have 1 SC and 0 units because my only unit was forced to disband. However, an interesting bug occurs, because the Save/Ready buttons still appear at the bottom of the screen, with no orders listed above them. Can someone fix this?

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?
