21 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [India]:I'm confused. How'd I end up missing a turn if this just started on Friday?
21 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Oz]:I was slightly confused as well.
21 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [India]:I put a message up on the forum and it was implied that something could be done about it. Is it possible to unwind the clock in WebDiplomacy?
21 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Russia]:not a clue
21 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Brazil]:No. As unfair as missing a turn is, being able to undo a turn would be even more unfair.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:Does seem unfair on India. I'll cancel if that becomes the majority decision.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Russia]:well if everyone wants to do that then i think we all need to agree to do the same actions
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Western-Canada]:I am willing to cancel
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Frozen-Antarctica]:I don't mind cancelling.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Near-East]:I would not mind cancelling.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Near-East]:To those of you who showed up late: the game starts when a sufficient number of players join. The time given is the deadline.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:Another idea, to save starting all over again, why don't those who would gain from India's absence for one turn just not do so. Have a one-turn moratorium in that area. That basically means China and Near-East won't advance further towards India next turn. After that, it's every man/woman/rat for himself/herself/itself.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Pacific-Russia]:I wouldn't be opposed to cancelling if the majority agrees, however, diplomacy is unfair, like life. Play on!
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Brazil]:@USA, that just spreads the unfairness, because now you're penalizing them. India still loses a turn, and then they've lost a turn.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Brazil]:I voted for a cancel, but I don't really support it. We should play on. That's a tough bit of business for India, but there are sixteen other players who signed up for a game here.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Russia]:in fairness to have missed the turn wont they have to have joined, then not checked back for 2 days to submit orders?? because in that case play on, if you can't keep up with a 2 day phase then you should miss your turn
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:Yes, indeed. Let's get on with it. 'Play up, play up and play the game!' Bite the bullet, India.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [USA]:. . . and say goodbye to Afghanistan and Thailand.
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Russia]:ha!
22 Apr 12 UTC Autumn, 2000: [India]:In fairness, I knew that the game was scheduled to start on Friday, and so I didn't check in until Saturday. Well within the 48 hours. To be clear, I wasn't ever complaining - I'm happily "biting the bullet". I just was curious what could have been done to rectify the situation, as I hadn't found anything that mentioned altering setups mid-game.

But I reserve the right to gloat unabashedly when I win.
