30 Oct 16 UTC Autumn, 1903: Immediately after the aforementioned:
"But you are too dangerous to be kept alive. If I let you help me, you'll stab the instant you see an opportunity. If I reveal moves, you'll exploit them. If I leave you alone, you'll stab. I don't trust you at all, to the extent that I fear NOT taking you out."

For Pinky. Way to pull a Mitch McConnell.

11 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Hey all,

I'm going away for 5 days, from tomorrow (the 12th) to the 17th. I was wondering if we could pause over this time? I'll likely only be able to get online once a day for a very short period of time, so I'd really rather a pause happened than the game continued over the time because I'd essentially be playing Gunboat.
11 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: I'm asking you all because I already had a 1-day pause through the GM, and I think that uses up my entire official pause.
11 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: As I understand it, you still have 6 days of pause through the GM, but I'll throw up a pause vote, might as well be civil.
12 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): A clarification of tournament policy on emergency pauses has reclassified the previous pause as an emergency extension, so we're going to grant this request as Italy's pause.

For future reference, emergency pauses under 24 hours will be granted without use of the one pause, but any pause beyond that length will be counted as the entirety of your only guaranteed pause.
12 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Alright, thanks for the clarification ghug.
17 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): I believe it's time to unpause now. Have fun.
17 Dec 16 UTC Spring, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): And time added by request.
22 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): Emergency pause for a few hours.
23 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: Moderator: (ghug): Sorry I'm slow. Vacation and such.
25 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I don't need a pause per se, and an kinda over all the pauses, but I'm going to be mostly MIA the next few days for the holidays. I'll vote for pause but no worries either way
25 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'll throw a vote in for England's MIA status. No biggie.
26 Dec 16 UTC Autumn, 1906: I tried voting to pause... Which is odd that it even lets me try.

Also merry Saturnalia.
02 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1907: England, when are we good to unpause?
02 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1907: Agreed.
02 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm good
14 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: I'm not dead yet!
14 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1908: My draw vote is in
15 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I would begrudgingly accept a draw vote.
15 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm happy to ally anyone not voting draw against anyone who is voting draw. Just message me ^_^
15 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Me too!
16 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I'll join Italy on this.
16 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: I can definitely understand the 'we're a month late in comparison to all the other games so let's just draw and be done with it' attitude, but I hate games ending prematurely and this is a World Cup game - we have a legacy to uphold :)

I warmly welcome Turkey and Germany into this alliance. Together we will overcome all adversity, and we will show the world that drawing is for Art Majors - not Diplomacy players!
16 Jan 17 UTC Spring, 1909: Huzzah, Huzzah!
22 Jan 17 UTC I had to enter orders in a rush yesterday and forgot to order ECh S Nwy-Nth, which was an agreement I had made with Russia the previous day. Russia's response to this was that he would never work with me again, which pretty much killed my solo chances, so I drew.

As you can see, I needed a solo to win since the rest of my team netted 0.5 points between them. There was a chance of that happening before last phase due to Russia not needing any result at all, but since he decided that a misorder was enough to cut all ties with me, that chance went this phase, so I drew.

GG all. Sorry @Germany that I wasn't able to fufil your request before the end of the game.
22 Jan 17 UTC Also congrats Uc, Vash & Rdrivera on going through to the next round!
22 Jan 17 UTC GG. Learned a lot. Thanks for playing. I will be explaining my behavior regarding Team California in the forums shortly. If anyone should have an objection to or inquiry about that, please let me know soon.
22 Jan 17 UTC What a truly unfun game lol.
22 Jan 17 UTC GG all
22 Jan 17 UTC Lesson: Don't misorder.
22 Jan 17 UTC Gg guys. It's been a pleasure.
23 Jan 17 UTC Oh my god Vashta. You were a pain, and gained very little from my removal.

But well done on your success.
