22 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Good luck everyone!
22 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: 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 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Just taken over Italy give me a moment to read over every's messages.. And good luck everyone!
22 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: This is off-topic, but does anyone know of a good web-based interactive map for Diplomacy, other than Backstabbr? I don't like Backstabbr as the maps don't change colour (big annoyance), and the units are crappy little shapes instead of tanks and ships (minor annoyance).

Can anyone recommend something?

23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,Italy!
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: "Active players only" is literally the title of this game
23 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm cutting in.
24 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ya'll need to cut it out with those grey check-marks
24 Apr 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: lol first off, you sent that message at 3:21am my time. So it's pretty tough to ready up when I'm asleep. Second, in a game this fast, you need every minute for press to be exchanged (especially considering global time zones).

It's not a live game, it's ok for 8 hours a phase.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: ACTIVE PLAYERS ONLY
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: xD 24 hours a day! Only Diplomacy!

If that were the case, we'd be playing a live game.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Straw-man?
I'm specifically talking about having your orders completed but leaving them not readied up.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: maybe because we are actually not ready? having ordered completed does not mean you are ready.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Absolutely, I input orders that I suspect I'll take, but then I have some messages I've sent out to various players and don't know how they'll respond, so I wait before readying so I have time to read and adjust orders.

It's a cooperative game based on communication. If you want to jump in, read and send no messages, ready up and then jump out, go play gunboat.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I've agreed with England on basically fuck all during this game so far, but I have to say - he's right about this ^^
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: What does active players only mean then?
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: And yeah the game has nothing to do with etiquette.
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Active means you will be ready and able to submit moves at least once every 8 hours. Hence the phase length. Which so far, everyone but your predecessor has been able to do!

For the short phase length and 0 excused turns, I'd say this has been an incredibly active game so far. I know it has been in the press I've been able to exchange.

Solid experience overall!
24 Apr 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Does it just mean "Please don't bail" ?
