Switzerland: No Man's Land.
Let's assume that Switzerland is no longer impassable. What effects would that have on the game, the strategy, and the tactics? Should Switzerland stay a no man's land, or might it be more interesting to make it a playable space? Perhaps it could be a neutral supply center, or just a neutral territory. What do you guys think?

Turkey Opening Strategies: Moving to Syria?
Turkey opens normally, except the fleet in Ankara moves to Constantinople, and the army in Smyrna holds. The army in Smyrna then moves to Syria. Turkey can build a fleet in Ankara or Smyrna, depending on whether he is going after Russia or Italy. This is not my idea. I was just curious to know what you guys think about it. Is a Turkish move to Syria just plain silly, or might it have some serious strategic effects?

25% of goal in under a month is not a bad rate of donation. Especially if people decide not to one-time donate. I plan on making regular donations so hopefully that helps.

@Zultar (aka Z-Money) When will you end the donation drive? when is our cut off? If i may suggest atleast giving us 6 months?? I know I plan on making monthly donations and I would hate for this to stop before I can contribute my maximum.

Also you should consider keeping it open long enough to allow for donations after US players get back their tax refunds. :) I for one will likely put a decent bit of that into webdip.

Of course I'll consider donation.
By the way, is it really necessary to rethink the forum? Considering the actual one it'll be made almost from scratch. Why don't use an already made one (phpBB or others) with just a script that permits to drive both site and forum with one user account (already done in the past)?
It'll spare time and effort to think about new features for the Diplomacy.
This forum could be anyway used as a blog for moderator communications, or as a closed forum for technical issues like in other webdiplomacy versions.

@KANG_Sev is was too full of undocumented problems sorry we're working towards a different solution.
@alexintour
The reason the forum needs updating is because it causes problems with some of the underlying code of the site. The way it is coded now, the site isn't able to be expanded to accommodate more features and players, since the it needs constant maintenance in order to keep it functioning properly. Fixing the forum allows the rest of the site to be expanded and developed further. While fixing the forum is the top priority, other features will be pursued as well.

jmo explains it well in the second post on page two of the thread.

Cool. I've been asking around, but haven't found anything good enough to pass along. If you want help reviewing candidates, just let me know. I have a lot of experience hiring engineers in the software field.
Out of curiosity, how much money does it take to host a site like WebDip annually?

French - Italian alliance
How would this work? Usually there's a non-aggression pact, but if France were willing to sacrifice Marseilles in return for support in Tyrolia, is this a workable relationship? Stabs are VERY difficult as they cross the stalemate line, but has this been effectively done before?

I hate people from Zimbabwe
Zimbabwe-ans suck big time.

I was actually going to use this new thread to maybe comment about what I think about women, or maybe what I think about Republicans, or maybe something else like that. But then I thought those things might get me in trouble. So I decided to express my opinion about Zimbabwe-ans instead.

Strategy differences between the maps
What would you say the biggest overall strategy differences are between playing the small map (Ancient Med) vs Classic vs the larger maps (Fall of American Empire, Mod Dip, World Dip, and soon to be extinct Known World)?

Lizard People Control Trump!!!!!
CNN has just reported that some people saw lizard people talking to Trump in the White House today. This confirms that we Americans are oppressed and should go riot somewhere. Maybe crash a few windows and raid while we are at it.
