01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: A pause is also fine by me. It will give me time to work on my upcoming collection of sonnets, titled "why didn't I build in Warsaw"
01 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: My last completed games have been as:

Russia
Italy
Austria
Austria
Austria

And now I'm Italy again. What's it like to play in the west? The lasts time I played as England and Germany was in 2018 and those were gunboats.
02 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I was trying to find that out myself, but I got bounced back :(
03 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Jesus Christ, the self-mutilating spite
03 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: well at least I can say despite my terrifically bad start, I did not go down a center in 1902
03 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Italy was counting on retreat + build phase to cover his absence. As there is no retreat phase (what a game!) I will put up the pause just in case it's needed.
03 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: Morning. I'm heading out in 10 minutes or so but I'll be back by the end of builds so no need for a pause. Thanks everyone
03 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1902: I would just like to point out to everyone that even though I am now on three centres, it is one sixth of the way to a solo.
06 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Extremely busy day, apologize for not getting back to everyone but i will soon.
07 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: I have some free time - if you send me any messages addressed to France, I will do my best to reply as I think France should.
07 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Before you write: full disclosure, I will be posting your message and my reply in global.
07 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: How can you monsters keep attacking such a generous guy like that?
07 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: Can I get in on this? Not sure how it would work.
08 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1903: If you're wanting to get in on writing press to France, my inbox is open.

If you're wanting to get in on "pile on Russia", then I'm afraid my schedule is fully booked this year.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: Apologies in advance, real life is treating me worse than F/G/R, I plan to use my excused missed turn for this retreat, that should be enough to get me on track...
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: No worries, personally I am grateful for the break. I’m also happy to pause if you don’t want to use up your excused missed turn.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: Yup, no worries with the pause.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: Yeah just ask if you need it
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: A 1 day pause sounds appropriate
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: Thanks all, I’m good using my excused missed turn, should just be 24 hour extension, I’ll request a pause in the future if need be but I hope not to.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: Pause is fine with me too, no need to use the exused missed turn.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: ...and I could use a day more myself. Things are happening in the real life.
Thu 08 Oct UTC Spring, 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.
Fri 09 Oct UTC Spring, 1903: No stress, I'm in no hurry to solo
Sat 10 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: Alright, back to the grind I guess. MM, you good to keep playing or need a pause?
Sat 10 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: Good to go, thanks for asking.
Sun 11 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: Have you been working on a sequel to “it’s your fault”? What’s it called?
Sun 11 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: (I assume this is the reason real life got busy- publishing deals don’t make themselves)
Sun 11 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: I'll actually take blame for the delay. He asked me to do the illustrations but I've been slow getting to them.
Sun 11 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: Is there truth to the rumour that France was originally asked to do them, but submitted only unflattering caricatures?
Wed 14 Oct UTC Autumn, 1903: To mitigate my solo threat and allow my neighbours some space to fight other people, I will not be building anything this year. You're welcome.
Sat 17 Oct 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.
Sun 18 Oct UTC Spring, 1904: Boo-urns
Sun 18 Oct UTC Spring, 1904: You okay, kgray? Can get a pause if you need.
Sun 18 Oct UTC Spring, 1904: I'm okay, sorry!
Mon 19 Oct UTC Spring, 1904: Well, I'm relatively okay. I seem to have found a knife in my back, but I don't think a pause would do much to help with that.
Wed 21 Oct UTC Autumn, 1904: Think I'm about ready to make my play for Portugal, apologies France.
Wed 21 Oct UTC Autumn, 1904: What a time to be alive.
Wed 21 Oct UTC Autumn, 1904: If I miss a turn it will be because I am checking myself in to the psych ward
Fri 10 PM UTC Hmmm, I can’t seem to find the Draw button... Searching... Searching... I’m not typically one to vote for a seven-way, but I think we all can agree the Russian is a quality chap, I’m perfectly content throwing him a bone in here... For Russia!!
Sat 01 PM UTC Hi everyone! I completely forgot about this game, apologies for not replying to anyone. I'm doing it now, miss you all.
Sat 04 PM UTC I'm really sorry everyone, I was hoping to avoid this but I've had to ask for a pause. I should be good to go again on Tuesday. Thanks for your patience!
Sat 04 PM UTC Sure thing! Pause is fine with me.
Sat 04 PM UTC Moderator: (Szpoti): We're resting for three days ;-) Those who don't like holidays can always vent their wrath to the Mod Team at webdipmod@gmail.com.
Sat 04 PM UTC I may also need a pause on November 3rd/4th, it promises to be an emotional time, may result in me uncharacteristically doing or saying something I later regret...
Sat 09 PM UTC 4 years ago I was able to solace by watching from a bar this year I'm afforded no such comfort. And I only live in America's hat. Can not imagine the stress living there currently. Good luck to you all.
Mon 05 AM UTC FTR - I was joking about needing a pause, as well as doing or saying something I later regret being uncharacteristic, but I am definitely stressed out about the upcoming election...
Mon 10 AM UTC Do you regret joking about needing a pause?
06:12 PM UTC I’m starting to...
02:13 AM UTC i may need a pause till 2024
