23 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey all, I have not posted the same message to any of you multiple times. So if you have received the same message from me multiple times, I am NOT doing that to be a jerk. Somehow the computer is sending my messages again and again. I would love to hear if anyone might know what is going on. I only have ever pressed the SEND button once per message and then move on, but am I inadvertently sending them some other way?? I would love to figure out why it keeps happening to make it stop. Sorry for the annoyance.
23 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: It's not you, it's a bug in the system.
23 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: do you play on mobile? I've had that problem when I leave a window of this open, then when I pull that window up again it refreshes and sends the message I last sent. I solved it by making sure I press "Board" before I move away from the window so there is nothing to re-send when it refreshes.
23 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: I don't play on mobile, but I do keep the game window open usually so I remember to play my turn. I will attempt to click Board more often and see if it helps.
23 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1901: From a Moderator: "That happens when you reload a page. Instead of reloading, click on the "board" link in the menu bar to reload. That should prevent duplicate messages."
24 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1902: Ah, thanks!
25 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: If France, Germany and Russia all go into Civil Disorder, the remaining players should vote Draw. It's not a fair contest when 40% of the board quits.
25 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Agreed. Did France and Germany miss a phase? I didn't see that.
26 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Both entered no orders for last turn
26 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: Apparently my previous move didn't save!
26 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm sure it was something I messed up. :(
26 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1903: Sorry folks, I had simultaneous home computer crash and work internet down. Both of these issues are not issues any more. My position on the board is certainly an issue, but there was nothing to be done...
28 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Be wary of alliances with Italy. They will not honor them.
28 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1903: Thank you for alerting us.
29 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1904: did anyone not get offered an alliance by Italy?
29 Oct 15 UTC Spring, 1904: I did not
31 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Ladies and gentlemen, I am getting married tomorrow and will be on my honeymoon from Sunday to Sunday. I request a pause vote until I return. I bear no hard feelings if you decline, as I'll be floating on a cruise ship and probably intoxicated.
31 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: I will activate my Pause and wait for you - congratulations!!
31 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: All six of us need to vote Pause for it to go into effect and all six of us will need to turn it off (when he returns) to re-activate the game.
31 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Happy Honeymoon!
31 Oct 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Thank you! I'll hop on and message the board when I turn my phone data back on next week!
06 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Going to go ahead and vote unpause since we'll need Germany to be back for it to actually unpause.
08 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1904: Land ho! I'm ready to begin again when everyone else is.
14 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Turkey is at 14 - time to bad together to stop him.
14 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: ya think?
14 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: No way, I am against this plan.
15 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Someone is going to have to explain troop movement priority. I try to lock armies down and they just move.
15 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1907: so, looking at your orders, I think this may be the issue:

If you want to stop a unit from moving you need to block its destination. If two units move to the same place they will not advance. (unless one has more support than the other)

If you move to where a unit is already present, if that unit also moves, both units will move unless they are attempting to move into each other's position.

Moving to a unit's position will only cancel it's orders if that order was a support order other than an order supporting a move to the position you are cutting support with.

Does that answer your questions?
16 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Yes. That makes sense. So we can't lock armies down that. I guess it would probably break the attack/defense system if you could. Thanks for explaining it! France has been benefiting from my ignorance for far too long!
16 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Best to think in terms of territories, not individual armies.
16 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1907: Hey Board - Turkey wins in four. Can we please stop attacking each other and focus on the REAL threat?
17 Nov 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: We need a stalemate line to force a draw. France and Germany, please coordinate your support holds and support moves.
17 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1908: Yeah, I know at least one of them won't work with the other after warring all game. Your best bet is to get us down to three, easier to coordinate, no old grudges, and more points each that way anyway
17 Nov 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I think all three of us are now working together. I also think we can get a stalemate line before you take three more. This will be a draw.
19 Nov 15 UTC Ok, as I said I needed to see you all cooperate once. I've now seen it. I voted draw
19 Nov 15 UTC Voted a draw
19 Nov 15 UTC Voted
19 Nov 15 UTC Well played, all. SirZ - very nicely done.
20 Nov 15 UTC Well played. Good game folks.
20 Nov 15 UTC thanks Eaden. and good game all around. Read up on the main stalemate line, next time I'll be sure to cross it earlier.
20 Nov 15 UTC We lucked out and formed it before you beat us. France, Italy, and Austria: you all played very solid games; please keep joining our games. :)
