14 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1901: Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Looking at the map, I see that Germany moved out of Holland, but Holland did not become marked in his color. Do you need to occupy a territory at the end of a year in order to take possession? I have only played the board game and was not aware that this was a rule. Looking through my manual, I can't find that referenced. Is that just a rule here or is that globally what is done in Diplomacy. Just wondering.

Thanks.
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Well I am only new to the online game as well - but I think you need to be holding the centre after the Autumn turn in order to count the centre as being held. But once you have held it like that once you can vacate it in future turns and it remains yours until someone else holds it at the end of an Autumn. Happy to be corrected by those more experienced if this is wrong...
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: That's right, I believe.
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Now if France would only finalize his orders...
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: oh, that is too bad for me, as I am new to this game and didn't know it had to be held till end of autumn. next time...
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: Thanks for the clarification... Is that the rule in the board game as well?
15 Oct 09 UTC Autumn, 1901: I believe so. In the current version of the rules section 5 says:
"A country controls a supply center when one of its
units occupies that supply-center province after a Fall turn has been
played and completed. Once a country gains control of a supply center, it can leave the center vacant and still keep control of it, as long as that center isn’t
occupied by another country at the close of a Fall turn. A unit that
moves into a supply center during a Spring turn and moves out of
it during the Fall of the same year doesn’t affect the ownership of
the supply center. In short, a country retains control of a supply
center as long as, at the end of each Fall turn (including retreats),
the supply center is either vacant or is occupied by one of its
own units."
16 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1902: Perfect, thanks!
16 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1902: Guess that'll teach me to join a game in progress.
22 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Farewell to the brave teebeak and BananaFang who should be commended for fighting until the last.
23 Oct 09 UTC Spring, 1905: please, finalize your moves when you are ready. It will make the game go a lot faster.
02 Nov 09 UTC Spring, 1909: You're all invited to the grand reopening of Austria, now under new management.
