I think it's really important that people are empowered to be able to work on webdip if they want. And a good way to empower people is to have people collaborating (or at least running a change past others). This is why we have a section of the forum (right here). I think saying "yeah, we have a team, let me PM you" undermines the value of this section of the forum.

You misunderstood me :-)
I'm not recruiting a rogue team of developers. Even if I was, I think you should give it a chance instead of killing it with fire but that's just my personal opinion ;-)

Just kidding. At the end of the day we are all the same: Diplomacy-Lovers

Another advantage to open discussion is that we don't end up developing features that the site wouldn't accept (I've been against adding features just because we can - people who have been around for a while may remember some analysis I did a while back that suggested that the more options we had for games, the fewer games actually got played).
This is a really valuable insight. Would you provide more data?

I would also like to know more about this "touch diplomacy." And how much do you tip for it?

Touch is a variant where you can only communicate with countries where you have units touching their units.

There are a few minor alternative versions, such as touch 1 and 2, where the units are 1 move away or 2.

But it is an interesting variant somewhere between gunboat and full press.

I like the idea of play a game of chaos with touch 1 rules.

Thank you, @orathaic. It is definitely planned to implement different modes.

No? I'm sure it has been discussed.

Did I mention grey press (where you can send anon messages aswell as non-anon ones), or full black press (where only anon messages are allowed).

I think a combination of Touch 1/2, and black press global chat would be great.

So you can talk non-anonymously with your neighbours, but you can also have a global chat where nobody knows who the messages come from...

That leans more towards full press than towards gunboat, but with some minor limitations...
