19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Your reaction-y things this game have been quite amusing :)
19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: http://www.myfacewhen.com/76/
Cheers my friend. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Do I smell a redditor? Or...?

19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Turkey, could we do something about those fleets of yours? I'd be willing to destroy them, so you could trade them in for armies to plow north with. You can't exactly go north with fleets :P

Also, is there any chance we could get another pause? I'll be hard-pressed to find internet these next few days, and would prefer not to suffer the disease known as not-communicating-enough-itis.
19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: (Said disease often results in loss of supply centers)
19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Also, who else votes for a recoloring of Albania?
19 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Also.
20 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'd like one fleet destroyed if possible...that'd be ok. How do you propose?
20 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1905: Move Smyrna to the Aegean, and I'll move Eastern Mediterranean to the Aegean the following year. Then, when given the option to retreat/destroy, destroy!
20 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1906: I have internet for a very limited time right now. France, I'll be moving Naples to the Tyrrhenian as a purely defensive measure to ward off funny business.

Turkey, I'm going to DMZ Budapest, Serbia, and Greece. I hope you can keep your armies out of Rumania, Bulgaria, and Constantinople.
21 Aug 11 UTC Spring, 1906: Sounds good. At most I'll have one tank moving up and out of Constantinople as a build depending on how hard Russia fights back. Other than that, I agree to your terms.
22 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: And of course, my fleet in Rumania is no threat to you since I can't move in land.
22 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Quite.
23 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I now have more than 5 minutes of internet a day!

:D
23 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: lol...excellent! Just waiting on France then!
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Can we get this show on the road?
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Pauses do not seem to interact well with this game...
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well we successfully unpaused it and then repaused it. And France has no reason not to come back since he was doing very well.
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: This is what's bad about anonymous games...you can send messages to the accounts of players in situations like this.
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Well, if France doesn't come back in say, three days, I'll send a request to mod to unpause. Or should we wait longer?
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: No, it's been forever already. 3 days is reasonable.
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: turkey i would like you to please not attack me i am moving agianst "blank" which may be your enemy
02 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Has anyone emailed the webmaster about unpausing this yet?
02 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: My bad, I've been out and about these past few days. On it!
02 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Awesome!
07 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: *sigh*

Email sent 5 days ago, no response yet.
09 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Huzzah!
09 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Suhweeeet!
09 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Thanks Italy!
09 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I suppose that if France does nothing, we can easily just stomp the board :)
10 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: If he does come back...I'm going to wonder why he never hit unpause...might be enough of a reason to eliminate either way!
10 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: I'm assuming we're still on to destroy the Aegean Sea.
10 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Or not. :P
10 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Oh sorry...I completely forgot about that plan...it's been so long. lol. I was thinking "oh, I'll just move my fleet out of the way" lol. umm...I can move to Eastern Med and do it again but I'll understand if you need your fleets.
11 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Yeah - I was planning on using my fleets this turn. Perhaps you could move Smyrna to Syria?
11 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Why Syria?
11 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: It's further from my SC's than most places, save maybe Armenia/Ankara if you were planning on that, and doesn't block up that SC for builds.
13 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: My thought process was...whether I'm in Syria or Smyrna I'm still one Sea away from Greece and if my fleet is in Smyrna, I won't be tempted to build another. Also, hopefully my construction of two tanks instead of fleets gives you more confidence in my commitment to our working relationship.
13 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I would still feel safer with your fleet in either Syria or Armenia.
And I know you wouldn't be tempted to build another fleet anyways, since you would have no use for it other than to attack me, thus giving yourself away as soon as you build them.
13 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I'll tell ya what. I'll move my Smyrna fleet to Syria and you move your Aegean Sea fleet to Ionian. I keep my tank out of Bulgaria and you keep your fleet out of Greece and tank out of Serbia. Deal?
13 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Yeah, course.
13 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Let's keep the entire Budapest/Serbia/Greece/Rumania/Bulgaria/Aegean/Eastern Mediterranean a unit-free zone, eh?
14 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Done! My fleet will have to chill in RUmania for a bit but he's obviously no threat to you. If I move him to Bulgaria...that will be a breach of our agreement. deal?
14 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1907: That sounds like a deal to me.
15 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: I'll be keeping a unit in Trieste if you don't mind, just as a safety precaution.
16 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sure thing....sorry, I missed a turn, lol. Started work today, been a bit distracted.
16 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: :P Work is more important than Diplo, and it's not as if it cost us the game or anything.
17 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Turkey, I am moving Trieste to either Budapest or Vienna to guard myself from the Russian, and Venice to Trieste. You may move units to Rumania if you wish to take similar defensive measures, though I prefer it be a fleet.
17 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 1908: Thanks for the heads up!
