24 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: Merry Christmas to all of you!
24 Dec 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thank you, and the same!
26 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1909: GameMaster: This user was banned: Auto. The time until the next phase has been extended from <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1264692303" unixtimefrom="1264531527">1 days, 21 hours</span> to <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1264704327" unixtimefrom="1264531527">2 days</span> (one full phase) so you can find a new player to take his place if you want to.
Make sure to finalize your orders if you don't want
to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily.
26 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1909: I don't understand this GameMaster message. Nobody seems to be banned?
26 Jan 10 UTC Spring, 1909: I think it was Italy, as he answered my latest mail in Autumn '08. Tough he didn't seem to do anything unusual.
11 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1911: Just a small note: I won't have internet next week so I'll probably be going into CD (unless I die before that ^^). Pausing is senseless, as I'm going to die anyway soon, but I'll vote for pause just in case.
27 Feb 10 UTC Autumn, 1914: How very nice of Germany.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1914: Yeah, sorry I beat you to it, but I thought this would be a more interesting endgame than just everyone beating up on Turkey. And I might even win right away, though that's unlikely.
01 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1914: Well, I wouldn't have stabbed you. Although this is more interesting, I'm still more of the contracts-shall-never-be-broken type. (It was implicit. Oh, whatever.)
01 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1915: Ah, well, my apologies then. I'm sure you can see why I'd have gotten the wrong impression, though, what with your constant flow of troops towards my borders and asking me not to defend myself.

Take a look at the maps from ten or so years ago; I think we both have good reason to be happy where we are now!
03 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1915: This just gets better and better.
08 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1916: Slowly, I begin to favour a draw.
09 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1916: Same here. I still feel like I ought to be able to win from this position but I'm afraid it doesn't seem to be working out that way.
17 Mar 10 UTC Spring, 1918: Goddamn it, this makes my brain hurt.
23 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1918: What the fuck? My orders are all messed up!
23 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1918: I've done that before myself. Sometimes hitting the scroll wheel on my mouse changes something in the orders that I'm not intending, so maybe that was it.
24 Mar 10 UTC Autumn, 1918: Perhaps.
