Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 30&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... 13&t=42845

Another question - if a player for country A has quit, so country A is in civil disorder, I understand all country A's units are considered to hold. Can another player support a unit in country A to hold?

I searched the site, but couldn't find the answer. Any tips for searching the rules would be appreciated as well.

Thank you

Yes, you can always support a foreign power's units to hold. That the power is in CD doesn't matter.
