Is there a new mobile website?
It looks great, but could I turn it off? I use a BlackBerry Passport, which has a nice big screen and doesn't need it.

That's probably a better solution anyway.
The map can be flaky in portrait mode, at least on Imperium.
Oli - I don't think the Extend, Draw etc buttons are working on the mobile interface. I am on holiday on a cruise so I am often at sea with no internet access.

In the 1066 game I am in I put I. Extend and Pause orders and they mustn't have taken as the other player didn't do the same. I believe this player to be very honorable and not take advantage of a situation. But he attacked & suspect it is because he never saw my Extend order.

I have since clicked Draw and that is not taking too. Can you have a look at it please?

Just realized there was a forum thread about the new mobile site. Haha. I kinda forgot about it once all the game information was visible at the top, as I never had a reason to scroll all the way down. New mobile only users might never find the forum.

What was the verdict on implementation of the tabbed column suggestion (Forum tab, notices/PM tab, games tab)?

I am generally liking the features that show up to improve the mobile site. Most of my complaints have been addressed as you experiment Oli. I am happy now with the notifications section generally usable again. I’m not confident I am seeing every notifications since last login, but I haven’t been able to definitively determine what’s missing if anything so I will keep looking. Meanwhile it is usable again.

On the forum, would it be possible to display a numerical counter indicating number of posts since last view or last login or last 24-48 hrs to better track trending posts?

Also, regarding the refresh button comments, perhaps some additional space between the forum text entry box and the refresh/post reply buttons would help with accidental clicks. Scrolling the text box past those buttons can be a bit hairy as I am noticing typing this.

Anyone else having problems with the new vote buttons on mobile? They work fine on iPhones, and browsing the web I found no hint that there is a problem with onClick events for buttons on mobile.

Nope, just tested it on BB10 and the vote buttons works fine.

Could I get a GameMaster post in my game clarifying that I was just testing the mobile website and that I don't actually want an extend?

Now that webDip has the mobile-code opn their site too I merged the original-code here too...
Instead of a opt-out in the settings they use a toggle at the bottom of the page to switch to the desktop-version. So you might need to re-enable this once.
If there are any problems send an error-report.

Game set up - NMR
I want to set a game so that it never processes a turn with out orders. I think that is setting “Turn” = 0.
But if I set “Delay”= 2 does that mean a two day/phase pause before that player is kicked? Or is he kicked immediately and there are 2 days for a replacement to appear. In the latter case what happens after the 2 days?

Known World Tournament
Awhile back, kaner proposed a Known World gunboat tournament in which 15 participants would play 15 games, one with each nation. I searched back for the thread, then just decided to start a new one. I want to see if there would be sufficient interest in this to try to get it off the ground.

I did some work on the adjudicator and this might work again.

obsolete Sengoku variant
Hi all, designer of Sengoku here. I would love to get the latest version of Sengoku in use on this system, as it is much more balanced. Found here: http://dipwiki.com/index.php?title=Sengoku
Even if the DP system, can't be used, the version at http://nairenvorbeck.angelfire.com/ is still better than the one in use currently. Poor Mori needs a fair chance :-) Anyone willing/able to help me get these implemented?

1 v 1 games on variant maps
I am not a coder (sic) so I was wondering how hard is/was it to code 1 v 1 games? Is it reasonable to think that variant maps (Modern, Ancient Med, etc) could be set up to create 1 v 1 games? The idea of having a larger group of countries to play against each other is intriguing. I just don't know if it possible, or doable.

How old school are you?
I am not very tech savvy so forgive me. I think I started dip on some RSS pages using Netscape at work in maybe 1996(?) does that make sense? All email based through Judges. What were they called? USDJ or something. I remember FROG but they all spoke French. Haha. I used to stand outside my office in the snow smoking a cig with a hand drawn map with about 100 crossing out for each phase using coloured pens. Ah web based interactive maps?!?! Luxury!!!

Napoleonic Variant, and the lack of neutral centers
I had the honor to play 'Napoleonic' back in the lab (an awful game as Spain by the way). I had a question back then which I ask here and now:

Why there are no neutral supply centers?

New Maps
I'm super new to the site and I was curious how new maps were made and/or submitted. I noticed a lot of the maps look a bit old and it got me thinking about what it would take to create a higher resolution version of a game map. Are there certain file formats a map must be in or is this all a responsibility for site admins only? Thanks!

Imperium Diplomacy
Under the variants, I noticed one called Imperium Diplomacy, but was not able to create a game using this variant. Is it a discontinued variant, or under a different name? It looks like an interesting one, especially the beginning turns.
