Re: Just convoy around

If you are in a situation where your army is taking a convoy, and the convoy is unavailable (either because it was unordered or broken), the army does not move. It's more nuanced than that.

Re: Just convoy around

This is intentional and the recommended implementation of the rules according to the DATC. Unless you're specifically trying to avoid your army getting kidnapped, it's probably best to...

"The tax reforms of 780 instituted by the official Yang Yan (727–81) aimed at saving the declining equal-field system.

Re: Aircraft Carrier Sales, Get Yours NOW!

Shipping is how they get you every time! Last time that I wanted to buy drones equipped with thermonuclear warheads I only made it to the checkout screen.

If that's the case, then it sounds like re-uploading the older old Forum threads wouldn't cause issues? Or did that cause a different problem?

Re: Old forum entries

Can we have the old threads from before 2013 back? Historical preservation is good. The old Forum can't overload the site anymore if virtually no one uses it, right?

Come join me over on vDip for a game of 1900! I pinky swear that the game will end in less than three real-life years, principally because I will win and you will lose.

I'm regularly reminded of my CRABS treaty (for Common Regulatory Aegean Body of Safety, of course) from the Group C public press game in the 2010 World Cup. One day it'll surely inspire me to write an epic romance novel about venereal diseases. Picture the forthcoming novel as a cross between the Co...

The real question is why webdiplomacy doesn't redirect to https by default. Seems like a simple rewrite rule in the apache config... I believe that webDiplomacy did redirect to https for some years.
