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?

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

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?

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.

@alex, just wondering but can you explain why President was NOT at the famous Don Jr. meeting with the Russians in Trump Tower just one floor below his office? (He was present in the Tower at the time.) If collusion is not a crime, then shouldn't Trump have been there to run the meeting? Arguably, colluding with a state actor could give his campaign a significant boost, right?

@Hauta, sorry, I can't explain that. Mostly because the hole story is not really that interesting for me. I think any way it ends it'll be fine.

I'm mostly interested in what you think about this incredible threat coming from a country which is usually considered not that good in advanced technologies.

Also, if someone could point out other A-B couples where the russian hackers are not that russian after all, I'll appreciate that.
Hauta (1618 D (S))

@alexin, huh? Russia is considered EXCELLENT in espionage! I believe that the elite in America share Putin's interest in damaging America's democratic institutions. It is a class war where the Putin is accepted by America's elite as just another member of the elite. Even better when the American elite can have the people blame the Russian bogeyman -- then they won't recognize the ongoing threat from the Koch brothers and their kind.

wrt the A-B couples, whether something is the Russian government or a Russian person who is "unaffiliated" with the government or some non-Russian operative who is financed by Putin. Not sure it makes much of a difference. However, no one seems to be connecting Britain/Germany/France/Canada/Japan, etc with hacking.
Ogion (4375 D)
19 Jul 17 UTC
Also, just because hackers are "private" doesn't mean they aren't acting on Russian government authority. That isn't how Russia works. Not every GRU or FsB agent carries ID cards you know


So, some journalists got a handful of reports wrong. we still have the conslusions of Us and European intelligence agencies who have more information than any journalists teaching these conclusions. The fact that they don't share everything doesn't undermine their conclusions

Of course, Russia would like people to think it does, which is why they plant stories like this

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?
