28 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: good luck, have fun
28 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: hello all, good luck...for the 3rd time :)
28 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: good luck everyone!
28 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: So, France is in! I wish everybody luck because I think luck has nothing to do with winning! I am ready to have fun, let's get this dialog started!
31 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: great...this didn't happened for a long time but I think I had introduced my orders...
04 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry 'bout that :(
07 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: Sorry all, but I'll have to request a pause till next Thursday (or _possibly_ Friday). I'll be out of town with sporadic internet access. I'm leaving early tomorrow, so I'm going ahead and voting the pause now.
07 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1902: No problem, Italy. Do what you gotta do.
14 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: Shall we continue playing?
14 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: Indeed!
16 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: http://tournaments.webdiplomacy.net/diplomacy-world-cup
"Pauses can only last up to seven days."

If we cannot start it tomorrow, I'll ask the mods to unpause the game, based on the rule above.
16 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: It's taken us five times to get this game running. I think we should wait until everyone votes unpause in order to avoid nmr's.
17 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: Agreed. I, personally, am waiting for news from Italy. He is the one who needed the pause, and thus is probably most likely to NMR should the pause suddenly be lifted.
17 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: I'm back. Sorry.
17 Sep 12 UTC Spring, 1903: I do apologize for the delay. I underestimated the extent to which things would cascade upon my return and keep me from turning to online obligations such as this.
20 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: Good game everyone!
22 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm going to be traveling for a couple days. No pause should be required, but please just don't finalize the current phase. Do that and we should be fine. Thank you!
25 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Dear Italy,

please think which way can turkey expand on the long run and who is in that way?
I'm sending you this video, to help you figure it out.

27 Sep 12 UTC Autumn, 1904: Oh well, good game everyone!
02 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1905: Dear Italy,

please think which way can turkey expand on the long run and who is in that way?

13 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: Goodbye Russia. See ya Italy, l've no doubt you will soon follow me to the exit lane. Too bad, it could have been different. Well played Germany and Turkey.
16 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1907: I agree France, it's not looking good for us either
18 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1908: Apologies for the lack of press, everyone. I've had precious little access to the internet these past days.
18 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1908: No problem, go back to sleep. We'll take care of your SC's while you nap. :)
26 Oct 12 UTC Autumn, 1909: I will need a pause over the weekend, please, beginning around midnight to 2 am Greenwich time, Friday night. I'm travelling to attend a wedding. I apologize for the inconvenience.
27 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Again: Please pause.
30 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: So, when is this pause ending?
30 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: Not sure. I only took my pause vote out to make sure everyone got through the hurricane alright.
30 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: I am back now, sorry for the delay.
30 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 1910: can we just continue then?
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: Dear Germany, Turkey,

unless I see a public statement from Turkey he want a 4-way draw I will move with warshaw and won't wait until he eliminates me after germany has retreated.
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: Russia, your paranoia really annoys me. If I didn't want a four way, why am I supporting two centres constantly for no gain to myself and have my draw vote out?

Germany, this is going to be a draw, please draw.
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: call it paranoia, or whatever but since you declared here publicly you want a draw I can contact the mods to ask germany what his plans are
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: I believe that's only possible when all movement is stalled.
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: I'm not sure though...
04 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1911: Go right ahead. I'm always happy to have a good chat with the mods.
06 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1912: turkey, unless italy gets tunis this spring I have to give warshaw to germany. You have no need to hold tunis, if you are committed to a 4way then this is the bare minimum. Any other move from you, which doesn't guarantee a build for italy will be considered as a threat against me and italy and will trigger I have to move wtih warshaw.

Meaning you not just move out from tunis, but you position yourself as italy being able to keep tunis for 100% (and venice of course) so he gets a build

I'm tired of this game, and if you don't show commitment to the 4way, which cnvinces all of us, including germany, I will know what your true intentions are and I will secure you not getting a single point.
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1912: Alright, I will be contacting the mods now. If only I can find their email...
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1912: Wait, I think I have it.
07 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1912: OK, done. Now we just need to await what they say.
08 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1912: I will be moving on Vienna and Tyrr.
11 Nov 12 UTC Spring, 1913: Is there anything you want me to demand from turkey?
I would LOVE to see you getting another build.
14 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1913: Good game Russia, gave it all 'til the end.
15 Nov 12 UTC Autumn, 1913: lol, next up......Italy!
18 Nov 12 UTC Please draw Germany.
18 Nov 12 UTC Italy, I am rather disappointed.
18 Nov 12 UTC I'm going to go cry now...
18 Nov 12 UTC Good game Tas, I really didn't expect Italy to do that. But I have been for the past hour been trying to contact him... different time zones I guess.
19 Nov 12 UTC Good game, everyone. There was no shortage of quality competition, and I nearly drove myself crazy trying to figure out how to get that win.
