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.

Google Translate Game
Hello everyone! I am looking for six other players to join a game of Classic(probably, another variant if more want to play), public press, where every player must send messages after putting them through several other languages and then back into English.

I am open to suggestions on exactly which languages and how many there should be.

Update Nexus Cold War tournament
For who wants to know: 47 participants joined and were seeded in both brackets (called east and west) so everybody has two chances to reach the final. (and if the semi's have the same people in it we go straight to the final)

Small improvement to the chat interface...
In an attempt to clear the chatinterface a bit I changed the tabs.
It now shows the countries you have sent or received messages by default, and groups all other in a new selector.

Nice. :)
Suggestion: When you have communicated with all countries, the 'Open new chat:' tab should be removed.
Oh that’s really nice, now us phone players don’t have to scroll for ages on the big maps.

Great!
One problem is that it still gives the option to open up chats with people on gunboat games. It doesn’t let you open up the chat of course, but it doesn’t make much sense for the option to be available to begin with.

New chats looks to have wires crossed in my games. Some messages are completely gone from countries i have comunicated with. While others show different dialogue from games.

Anyone else see anything strange? I have posted to mods issue

Yeah it seems there are serious problems with chat now. Seeing messages of another player.

I am not having that issue, but I can confirm that I cannot see historical messages with players unless I type in a new message to that player.
I'm having the same issue as Melodius_Kitten.

Same issue. I can see another players messages (which is quite fasinating in previous games)
Frozen Dog (1574 D)
29 Jun 19 UTC
Yeah it seems that one person in each games donates their press board...

This is clearly a serious issue likely related to the new chatfilter feature.

Until it is resolved I recommend everyone in games where there seems to be an issue to avoid reading through press.
KingOfSwords (1026 D)

Oli, what you need is a test site, where you can try out new features and debug them, before making the same changes on the main site.

I'm also having these press issues. In one game, instead of my own press, I see the press of a player who was eliminated a long time ago.
G-Man (2204 D)

Looks like all press games are affected.

I have reverted the feature for now.

It's really strage, as I only messed with the chat-tabs, and not with the chat-contest.
I have a small dev-server, but these kinds of features need bigger database to work properly. Sorry, but vDip was always some kind of live-dev-server and if you want to see some new features there are always some risks of hickups....
Frozen Dog (1574 D)

Yeah was a great idea! But glad that you've reverted it for now. :)

Even after the reversion, it looks to have disabled the 'show countryname' setting. Have that set yet chat is coming through coloured and with no country name.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime... reading through your enemies messages... thank god I was too busy to take advantage of it for long.

Yesterday I have very much enjoyed going back to my finished games and reading the press of the other players. Especially when they talk about me.
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
30 Jun 19 UTC
There was a 2 hours window as this was possible. Sorry everybody, but I'm really not sure how changing the orders of the tabs could have affected the messages.
The Dropdown-tab is back, should work again as intendet.
Please send a bug report as soon as you get problems again.
Maybe I will try to improve on this next weekend.
Seems fine this time.
Titus (1312 D)

Oli, i like much the new chat feature to unclutter the tabs. I wonder if from this modification you can go to the group chat feature, so when someone opens a new chat they can specify to open a new chat with a group of players by selecting the people the want in the new chat. To avoid cluttering, that selected new chat group can be maintained in a drop down list that can be selected at any time.
Oli (977 D Mod (P))

I did another small change. It now sorts the countrytabs by alphabetically and put the notes tab at the end.
Please send a message if there are any errors. DId some more tests this time and everything "should" work as expected now.
KingOfSwords (1026 D)

This is much more logical.

Decompressive Backseat Orchidectomy Restart
For those that were in this cancelled game (over the technical gaff beyond our control), I’ve recreated the game as Decompressive Bilateral Backseat Orchidectomy. Message me, G-Man, for the password. This is just a restart for the same group of players that had already been playing this game. So, no newcomers please.

Conceding/Withdrawing from a game
Sorry if this is a well-flogged dead horse, but I've looked in the 'Help' section and can't seem to find an answer to this. Is it possible to concede a game - I don't mean voting for a concede result, but for a player to unilaterally withdraw from the game deliberately?

Why can't you view anything besides the public chat in archives?
Look I understand why you can't watch it during the game, since you could Pm players the details, but after a game has ended, I want to be able to view alliances, deals, and other things that you just couldn't see in the normal chat.
