Classic Chaos?
I'm trying to start a game of Classic Chaos and have posted already on a new games thread, but I felt that to ever hope of reaching enough players, it needs more publicity. I had some people sign up but they've now left so if there aren't any takers this time, I'll take the hint and give up but please if anyone's interested, I really love to give this variant a try, it looks like such fun.

Any programmers here?
Two things. First anyone interested in collaborating on some project and secondly can someone explain to me why Golang's panic is a heaping pile of fecal matter? Details to follow

So I write a web server in golang. I am in favor of rapid development and deployment, which means releasing as you are developing. Releasing where logical errors may still exist in those 1 in 1000 circumstances. So I have some random array out of bounds error, the system panics. What happens? There is no weird pointer dereference on the server, the Golang interpreter sees there is an index out of bounds and decides 'hey time to kill the entire server'. So the entire server goes down. Related issue, the database gets corrupted in some way, entire system goes down.

I do research and find there is some way of recovering from panics. Try that in the main function. Panic occurs in a separate threadlike construct in golang - system crashes again! So I need to write this boilerplate (log the error and continue executing the server) code in every single separate "thread" leading to a mass of useless boilerplate just to avoid the world coming to an end because of some small bug.

So basically with golang I have to choose either 1. take the time to code everything perfectly logically consistent with error checking and all that (which is probably impossible to guarantee because bugs will almost always happen) or 2. write all this garbage boilerplate to circumvent the retarded default behavior, or 3. just watch my server religiously and try to spot a crash and auto restart or come up with some separate process that detects when it crashes and auto restarts it.

Bottom line: garbage construct, not suitable for rapid prototyping and overall annoying stupidity.

Games like vDiplomacy, but also TripleA?
I'm looking for a game that has vDiplomacy's simultaneous turns, asynchronous multiplayer, and ideally a light or in-browser UI, BUT also has a much more complex game system (not to say that Diplomacy is bad because it is simple, but rather that I'd like an alternative).

BENCHMARK GB TOURNAMENT
Hi all, I’d like to check if there's some interest for this 20-players Tournament idea.
In case we got a few people less or many people more, I could change within a few days the structure to adapt it to the new number, but the ideal number would be 20. More to follow.

Rules/etiquette question
Anon full press game. I think I know who another player is. Is it cheating to warn a third player about this person based on their moves in the current game and past reputation?

The Reconquista circa 1030? A diplomacy variant
I was just reading about the Spanish inquisition and it occured to me that an interesting time period would be the Spanish reconquista. After a google search I found this map:

Potential Fix for Convoy Orders
Is there a way to fix convoy orders to where there is a set of blue lines leading from the convoyed armies' location, to each of the convoying fleets, to the end location, rather than a red move order directly to the destination with connecting blue lines from the fleets

Country assignment
I do not know how many of you played on the "diplomacy judges" of old...

But I was wondering if someone might be interested in introducing the semi-random country assignment that they used, and whether it's doable from the point of view of the code.

"Draw" games?
How to end a game in a multi-player draw? Is it possible on this site? If so, where is it documented. Is there a way to grant "proxy" to another player for any period of time? Where would that be documented? Is that enough questions for one post?

Hey, Butterhead
So Texas is seemingly looking hard only at Shaka Smart. Gregg Marshall from Wichita State is seemingly not being looked at in the same way. For all of the hoopla over the Final Four run, do you have any insight as to why Shaka Smart has never won a conference title in either the Colonial or a gutted Atlantic 10?
