11 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hey guys. Out for the evening so I might not be able to send meaningful press until the morning. Hope that gives us enough time with 36 hr phases. But I'm sure you guys all know of and are happy with the juggernaut anyways ; )

At any rate, good luck everyone. Let's make this a fun one.
11 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck from England to all of you. Hopefully we can band the board together and stop the Juggernaut, then draw 5-way ;)
11 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: haha - hey everyone welcome to the next level! Is it too early to promise gift cards in the mail should you all throw the game to me?
12 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good game, all. I look forward to it!
12 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck players. Here's hoping for an interesting and fun game. Aussie embassies are open, manned by koalas and kangaroos, and accepting tribute. G'day to you all.
12 Aug 15 UTC Spring, 1901: Hello Guys

I'm was away the first part of the week, I'm just got in. This should be fun.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Could I request a 2 week pause? I'm over - busy spending 13-14 hours per day at work.

If that's too long, I can give my spot away if you all prefer that.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Considering how early we are in the game, my vote would be for a replacement but I don't want to exclude you from the tournament of you have your heart set on it.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: How certain are you it will end in two weeks?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm in no rush, and know the long day feeling. Just got over a spell of it myself at work.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: 2 weeks is fine with me.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Agreed, but if he's not certain it will be limited to a couple of weeks, then how long should we wait?

How about we pause and if in two weeks you feel it is not going to end, we can look for a replacement?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Moderator: (ghug): Tournament rules only obligate y'all to allow a one-week pause, so if there's any opposition here, we can find England a sub to play in his place until he's free again.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm pretty certain my load will lighten within 2 weeks. I have a "project" starting from scratch that was thrown in my lap not long ago. Once it gets up and running, I'll be back to my old self.

I'll put in a pause vote but if you all want to replace me until later, I'm ok with that as well and I'll play the chips where they lie.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Are we aiming for before or after this turn?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: System is set to 'wait for orders' so it will not proceed unless everyone has saved a move.

So no matter what the game is protected from NMR.
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Regardless, G and A should throw up a draw vote
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Ha! PAUSE vote - sorry
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm fine with a draw if everyone else is. Would that mean we all go through to the next round?
14 Aug 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: No a draw now would ensure we do not go to next round.
