19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: enthusiastic Burlesconi style greetings to everyone. Thanks for playing. You will find that almost all of you will profit immensely especially in the early going if you pursue positive relations with me. I look forward to our dialogue. Let me know if you have any questions about the rules or interface as well.
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: how do we know what message is from who? it is been awhile...
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: color of the text, duh...
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Indeed! However I believe if you select the colorblindess setting in the settings tab it will write out who the message is from instead. Don’t quote me on that.
19 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: I also want to let everyone know for the sake of transparency that I know england and russia in real life, but I won’t let it effect any of my relationships with you!
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Germany says hi.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: The Czar says hello.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: The Czar says hello.
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Top of the morning to ya Chaps
21 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: the Czar is in his cups again, apparently.
23 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Austria says hellos.
25 Feb 19 UTC Spring, 1901: Bonjour.
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: Lest any of the European Powers think I am a bloodthirsty maniac for invading Marseille, I did give France fair warning and the opportunity to bounce my forces there, but alas, Spanish Wine and endless Tapas bars seemed to have induced a bit of a hangover.
06 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: It’s a bit like the time I found a dead guy in the street (I live in Chicago, pretty commonplace). I gave him fair warning I was going to take his wallet and watch if he didn’t say no. *Spoiler Alert* I have a new wallet and watch.
France is dead, and the spoils are being divvied up. Get in while the getting is good. Italy certainly has.
07 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: eh, the south of France is overrated.
Now Tunis, though, that's the hot shit.
07 Mar 19 UTC Autumn, 1901: No doubt, you turned history on its head. Hannibal as the Scourge of Rome?!?! Other way around now, Carthage!
13 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1902: anyone hear from France lately?
15 Mar 19 UTC Spring, 1902: I think France surrenders, big surprise.
Those cheese eating surrender monkeys.

12 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 1903: Hello Great Nations! The Turk is going on family vacation starting tomorrow. If you’d like to talk but I don’t get back to you right away, sorry about that. I will still check messages from time to time, and I’m available for the rest of the day.
21 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Happy Easter everyday ne
21 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Lets try this again. Lol. Happy Easter everyone.
24 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: It says that England “Left” the game. Is there any way to confirm, and if they want, to get them back in the game? I’m having lots of fun playing, I hope others can say the same, but we seem to be losing players at a disappointing pace. Thoughts?
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: we can get him back in the game. after two missed turns a player gets booted from the game so that someone else can take over his country if necessary. we could try to get a new player, or get the old England back.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Personally, I’d like to get him back if he actually wants to play. He was doing a good job with England.
26 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah it’s not like him to miss and a kissing players throws the whole game out of Balance.
27 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: For sure. We need somebody from France, England, and Germany to start playing, and I think we’ve all come to terms with the demise of the French. England and Germany are both in great shape! Shouldn’t be a hard sell.
03 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Germany here. Sorry guys. I just got a new job and have been rather distracted as a result.
03 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Hey man, real life duties definitely supersede Diplomacy duties. Glad to have you back!
15 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
22 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
22 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: France has left, if we all “Ready” our orders, the turn will move on.
26 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
29 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: So, can we just all vote for a draw and call this game? Two countries down and Russia is MIA.
29 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Indeed. My draw vote has been up for awhile.
07 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1905: I am OK with a draw, since I don't see any course to victory for me at this point. And I keep almost forgetting to enter my turn in time.
07 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1905: all we have to do is all select "draw" near the bottom of the map.
08 Jul 19 UTC Spring, 1905: But I'm also willing to play it out if others feel a need for closure.
09 Jul 19 UTC Autumn, 1905: sorry everyone. I was away in Iceland and then came home and had to move for the last couple of weeks.

14 Sep 19 UTC Well, that’s a 4th person whose quit. This game should be a draw. Italy and I have our draw votes cast, just hoping Russia will follow suit. The points will be split amongst those that stuck it out.
14 Sep 19 UTC indeed. the game is over, and has quite frankly been ruined for a long time.
14 Sep 19 UTC of course we could keep playing since the turns will go much faster :-)
