20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: I have a suggestion. We are playing with a 3-day deadline for each turn. It would have been useful to set different deadlines for retreats, spring/fall summits and build/disbanding units.
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: On the Belgium thing- Belgium was attacked twice (Holland and support from Ruhr) and had 1 support hold, shouldn't this cancel out the support move it had for NS?
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Also it won't let me confirm orders because it I have no options to retreat my holland unit to. Ta
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: That means you have to disband
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Moderator: (Claesar): The "retreat" option is also a dropdown box. This is something that's often missed. Change it into Disband to have legal orders.
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Moderator: (Claesar): Regarding Belgium, the army in Holland attacked Belgium. This cuts support to anything but Holland. A unit can't cut the support towards itself.

From the official rulebook: "A support is cut if the unit giving support is attacked from province except the one where support is being given. The support is cut whether this attack on the supporting unit succeeds or not."
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Moderator: (Claesar): Regarding shorter deadlines for retreats/disbands, we do not offer this option. Some other websites do, but we believe this is not a positive addition. We have the option to "Ready" orders to make a deadline proceed faster. We've noticed shorter deadlines on specific phases surprise people and cause missed orders.
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Fair enough. Thanks a lot for the detailed info.
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Wow claesar is fast!
20 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Haha for sure. I wish some of the players had that speed..
25 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: 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.
25 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1903: Moderator: (Claesar): I would advise to always enter preliminary orders (just Save, don't press Ready yet). Not entering orders before the deadline lowers your Reliability Rating. If that gets too low, you'll be banned from joining games.
27 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Hello mr. Moderator. One of the guys needs to bow out of the game. What's the best way to do so without causing much disruption?
27 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Hi! Do you have a replacement lined up?
27 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Would you like me to pause until you have a replacement?
27 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: We don't have a replacement I'm afraid
28 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Would you like me to post on the forum asking for one?
28 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: that would be great - thanks!
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Paused while waiting for replacement. Who is it that wants out?
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: It's Austria. Thanks. Could you unpause the game please? We are willing to accept Austria's situation as a casualty of the war and let it run its course. If we can find a replacement in the meantime that's great otherwise we will just adapt to the changes.

29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Unpaused by request.
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Thank you
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): I think I have a replacement. I'm going to force CD Austria.
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: @mod sorry but do you mind holding off please?
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: We've agreed that Austria will stay in the game
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): I put Austria back.
29 May 19 UTC Spring, 1904: Thanks moderator, sorry about the confusion. We've been discussing this between ourselves
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thanks Mod. A technical question: if I order unit A to support a move by unit B, and someone (unit C) tries to move into unit A's territory, am I right in thinking that unit C's attempt will fail, assuming no other support for unit C's attempt? (I.e. Moscow attacks Sevastopol, while Sevastopol is supporting a move into Rumania, would Sevastopol hold or be dislodged?) Thanks
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Absent other supports, Sevastapol would not be dislodged.
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thanks
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: mr moderator, is it possible to change the game phase frequency? Currently ours is 3 days.

I'm not saying we would want to do it but I was curious about it.
31 May 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Yes, I can change that if you want.

04 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moderator, could you change the game phase to 1 day after autumn 1904 please?
05 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Yes. Do you want me to change it now, or after retreats, or after the builds?
05 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1904: Now please Mod
05 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Hi Mod. Russia has one more PC than unit, but was unable to build a fifth unit as all his home PCs are occupied. Does he get to carry over the build to another round? Thanks
05 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: He will if he keeps the PC.
06 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Moderator can you please change the game phase to 1 day please? We are fine with having it change ASAP. Thank you

06 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Moderator: (peterwiggin): Done. Sorry for the delay.
06 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Thanks Mod. No worries, we appreciate your input
06 Jun 19 UTC Spring, 1905: Thanks mate

19 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator. Some feedback: it might be an idea to extend games by 24 hours automatically after a server downtime as long as the one you had yesterday. The site came back up late last night and the deadline for the round was before people woke up. If we hadn't purposefully used a delay the game might have been ruined.
19 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Hope you lose, Vic.
19 Jun 19 UTC Autumn, 1908: Moderator: (peterwiggin): They're supposed to be extended after downtime. Not sure what happened yesterday (I was traveling), but you're not the only ones affected. Sorry about that.
