Why was my support move blocked here?
http://webdiplomacy.net/map.php?gameID=201965&turn=11&mapType=large
I'm kind of a noob so this might be a dumb question.
I'm playing as France. The relevant bit is the move the army at Kiel support move to Denmark from Heligoland Bight. This fails because of Germany's move to Kiel from Munich, but Munich can't move there since it's being dislodged. Shouldn't my support move work since the Munich army is being attacked?

6.D.21. TEST CASE, DISLODGING DOES NOT CANCEL A SUPPORT CUT
Sometimes there is the question whether a dislodged moving unit does not cut support (similar to the dislodge rule). This is not the case.

Austria:
F Trieste Hold

Italy:
A Venice - Trieste
A Tyrolia Supports A Venice - Trieste

Germany:
A Munich - Tyrolia

Russia:
A Silesia - Munich
A Berlin Supports A Silesia - Munich
Although the German army is dislodged, it still cuts the Italian support. That means that the Austrian Fleet is not dislodged.

The German move still happens even though it got dislodged.

Ezio is right ( as is bozotheclown )
The German army in Munich can move to Kiel.. which cuts the support move, or a support hold from a unit in Kiel. ( even though it doesn't dislodge the unit in kiel )The supported attack on Munich simply dislodges the unit from returning to Munich after failing to dislodge the unit in Kiel

Ok, I understand that it's in the rules, but I choose to think that the rules are dumb.

Here's an easy way to think about it: an attack works every time, regardless of outcome. Anything that was attacked has support cut before getting the opportunity to support. Anything that wasn't attacked is able to support successfully.

If Kiel was empty, the army in Munich could go there despite Munich being attacked. So why shouldn't the army in Munich be able to cut support in Kiel, despite Munich being attacked? The rules seem intuitive to me.

I think I'll go to London from 6-10 August..
.. and perhaps longer if I can find a cheap place to stay or it's too fun to leave. I know that some of my webdip friends (and other webdippers probably) are from London, so if anyone wants to message me to see if we can meet up, exchange tips or even let me stay at your place for a while, please feel free! I'd love to meet some of you in person.

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

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?
