Yemen
In our continuing series on what makes America Great. Yemen.

Mostly i'd like to discuss the morality, or what *should* be happening in Yemen today.

Italy Opening Strategy: Early Attack on France?
Venice goes to Piedmont, Rome goes to Tuscany, and Naples goes to Tyrrhenian Sea. If France moved Marseilles to Spain, he will be forced to take a guess at whether Italy will enter Marseilles or leave it vacant. If Spain re-enters Marseilles, France will have a slow start against Italy. And if Italy gets into Marseilles and Tunis, he will get two builds. Thoughts?

Where'd the new rules come from?
I usually try to stay updated on what people talk about in the forum daily. Recently I haven't been able to and I came back to find that their are new rules regarding how shitty we can be to each other on the forum. I understand that there was a thread that was so bad the mods felt the need to make more rules. Anyone care to tell me what was said that was bad enough to warrant this?

St. Petersburg to Findland: Should Russia Ever Make This Move?
The title says it all: is there ever a situation or scenario in which Russia should move his fleet in St. Petersburg (South Coast) to Finland? What kind of diplomatic arrangements need to be made for such a move to occur?

Austro-Hungarian-Turkish Alliance: Just for Fun? Or Turkish Delight?
Turkey and Austria-Hungary work together against Russia, with a passive Italian player. Turkey moves into Bulgaria, Black Sea, and Armenia. And Austria-Hungary moves into Rumania and Galicia. Is this just pure fantasy? Or will Austria-Hungary and Turkey be treating themselves to Turkish delight by the end of it?

gunboat related - grabbing Munich in 1901
I find that a lot of players that start as France would actually try to get Burgundy into Munich in gunboats in Autumn 01. What is the point of that? Germany will have to build armies to get France out again and thus put England in a massively advantaged position.

Thoughts?

Rule Hypocrisy
the people that made a rule against "Sexism, racism, homophobia, and other forms of bigotry" but allow cussing i think is quite hypocritical. if you allow people to cuss on this site then why is it wrong for someone to politely state their belief that homosexuality is a sin? if this forum was made for people to voice their opinions and opinions are allowed on other matters then why is it wrong to voice your opinions on sticky subjects?

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?
