Can't send press during build phase?
Hi, during one of my games, I seem to not be able to send press during build phase? I have been away from the site for a few years, so is this a new feature/rule I'm unaware of or is there something wrong with the game I'm in?

Email notifications?
Does vDiplomacy not have an option to send email notifications upon important game events?

I just recently set up a game, then came back to check on it a couple days later only to find that I'd NMR'd it without even knowing. I couldn't find anything in my email, even in Spam or Trash.

Unfortunately not. I wish it did, or a push notification, or text.
But if you set up the game, shouldn't you have know when the deadlines were?

While there's no alerting system implemented, I've used an external service that scans the website for me and notifies me on my cell phone when there's a change (a phase has moved forward). I've used Web Alert on Android but there are probably others as well. I think my Alert scans the banner on the top of the site and will therefore notice when a game has advanced.

Sending many mails as a small website usually puts you on a blacklist for spammers. We had this with in the beginning, as many people created an account. Maybe I can add a personal RSS-Feed. But usually only the tech-savvy users know how to use RSS.

Understood. I'll just have to be more careful next time.

@Devonian

I had the game start as soon as it was full, but I didn't realize it was going to fill up so quickly.

Are push notifications feasible?
Not really as we have no phone numbers registered for texts or a mobile app, only a mobile web UI for mobile browsers. Push requires an registered app on the phone which means writing it for both Android and iOS (and Windows phone for truly complete coverage) and getting it on all those stores.

An app would be cool though.

There is a standard for push-notifications. It works with most web-browsers, and should work on mobile too. I did some research, but it's a bit too complex for me. If someone could provide me with an easy implementation I can take a look at this.

On the other hand: RSS readers might be able to do Push notifications, and setting up an RSS-feed is really easy. I have implemented one on my development-server already. I'm just thinking about an easy (and secure) way to generate an individual feed for everybody that wants one (and have some ideas already).
I don't think the mobile browsers necessarily implement it. And I've had difficulties with IE and Edge pushes in the past. Chrome on a PC/Mac works great though.

I like the RSS idea. It's older tech, but it's more widely compatible.

For anyone interested I made a first implementation of a personal RSS-feed.
Just check the "Features" tab in your settings.

Very cool! I have no idea how to use it, but awesome for those folks who do ;)

You generate your personal link and click it. If you use a RSS reader it will check for new "notices" in a given interval and send you a notification, or most browsers can create some kind of "life"-bookmark-list out of a rss-feed.
Enriador (1491 D (B))

Are we notified about in-game messages using RSS? I am trying out the Android app 'Read' but got no warning about a message.

Is it the app's fault?
Oli (977 D Mod (P))
10 Feb 18 UTC
No, it's not about in-game messages, only about turn-processing and PMs. It's basically the same as the "Notices"-tab on the home-page.
Implementing this for the ingame-messages would require some database-changes to keep the server-load low. But I'm not sure if it's worth my time to implement this.

WTA vs Draw-Disvaluated Scoring
What about adding Draw-Disvaluated Scoring to vDip?

It's a mix of Calhamer Scoring (aka Winner-Takes-All) with Draw-Zero Scoring, and has the fortunate effect of pushing players towards a solo unless a draw is absolutely necessary. Solos work like in WTA, but draws are different.

PPSC vs SoS
I couldn’t find the answer in Help.
I know PPSC means in a solo the points are allocated based on supply centre count while in a draw it reverts to an equal split of points like DSS/WTA
For SoS over on WebDip, in a draw the points are allocated on a sum of Squares principle. But Help section doesn’t say what happens in a solo. Same method or reverts to winner takes all? I’m assuming SoS whether draw or solo but checking
Thanks

A noob question about R###
Hey Guys, new to the site (and fairly new to diplomacy).
Next to players names are their diplomacy points, I get all that, but next to that is an R### number, I may be missing it, but I cant see this in the rules. (ie name is NAME(1000/R92). What does this number mean?

Sengoku Nagashino Feedback Thread
Hi Sengoku Nagashino players - please deposit your thoughts here for designer digestion as the first round of games resolves.

Please do not directly comment on the situation/players etc. of any active games. Please limit your comments to the variant design itself, as it appears at gamestart. Once a game has completed, it is fair game for analysis, but not before please.

Deep philosophical question about American culture
So I teach at a major public research university. And I keep noticing that my male students in their early 20s seem with a surprisingly high probability to be intimately familiar with the movie Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood. This movie came out when I was in high school. And at the same time, they seem ignorant of In Living Color which is readily available on Youtube. So why DBAMTSCWDYJITH and not, for example, I'm Gonna Git You Sucka?
