Build and retreat turns
Should 100% be put together they involve next no strategy and are quite frankly boring. I think the reason that this isn't the case as it could be confusing how ever a bit of graphic design would fix that e.g BUILD in bold and underneath that are build options and under that RETREAT in bold and under that are your retreat options

Question on this movement
I am pretty new to the game. This just occurred in a game I am playing. I can't understand why Vienna couldn't move to Galicia with 2 support.

Posting links to pictures of messages?
Is that allowed in the rules? Ie. in an anonymous game, Italy is betrayed by Russia, so posts a link to an image posting site which shows the chat between the two? It seems like it shouldn't be but I can't see where it's prohibited.

Ghost rating question
I read the explanation on the GR website. I get that eliminating players in WTA improves the GR gain.
Do I understand correctly that an effort was made to make the GR score in SoS games based on centre count, but not implemented ultimately? So one should still kill off small powers (at the expense of centres elsewhere) to improve GR gains?

Paused game issues.
Does anyone know how to contact mods to help unpause games? I have one that's been on pause all month (game id: 199383) and one still on pause since 2014 when I was in high school (game id: 128401). Any way to terminate/resume/draw these games?

The voting buttons
I'm not entirely the "cancel" button does. It seems to have no propose to me. But one button I do recommend is a "kick" button for inactive players as they severely slow the game down. Of course, be a minimum time or number of turns before it's an option.

Dr Who and Gender recognition
http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/07/17/doctor-who-we-regret-to-inform-you-that-you-are-still-legally-a-man/
I know this is mostly meant to be fun (and a serious look at gender recognition laws in the uk) but i make me question one thing.

Is the spousal veto a necessary thing? From a purely contractual perspective. Can't you go 'well if your spouse isn't happy with your new gender, then they will have to apply for divorce.' ??? Thoughts?

Google says: "The Punic language, also called Carthaginian or Phoenicio-Punic, is an extinct variety of the Phoenician language, a Canaanite language of the Semitic family."

Kench is right - that might be difficult to figure out :-)

A number of Google Translate games have been played over at vDip and was covered off in one of our earlier episodes. I'd recommend checking the show notes and fast forwarding to the relevant section on Kaner and my experience with Google Translate Dip games. See http://diplomacygames.com/diplomacy-games-podcast-episode-4-shownotes-world-war-iv-google-translate-diplomacy/. You can also download from iTunes or Stitcher.

They're a lot of fun, and would be keen to be involved.

The hilarity of the game comes down a lot to the rules you set for translating; the vDip rules tend to make it a little easier to get proper translations. The other critical part if the player's take on things eg are they playing to win, or are they playing for entertainment.

If more players are more than willing to go for entertainment, instead of people saying (assume this is translated) "Damn, Germany just screwed me over. The little twerp" you instead put in words like "Fuck, Germany just fucked my ass and it feels like a red hot poker twirling around! The little cock sucker!"

Put both of those into Google Translate with whatever translation rules you have and I guarantee the result for number two will be far more entertaining.

Exxon fined for violating Russia sanctions

The Department of the Treasury just fined Exxon $2 million (that's right, million with an "M") for violating sanctions related to Russia's involvement in Ukraine. Why should Russia care about lifting sanctions if toothless enforcement is the alternative?
