26 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Man, no Good Luck Have Funs in global. Tough crowd.
26 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Apparently people are taking the admonition to be feared to heart. Personally, I like being loved. Much more pleasant.

But then, I'm a mediocre player. Bu I have cute puppy videos!
27 Jul 17 UTC Autumn, 1901: Hey all,

Going to be super busy today so I likely won't get around to responding to messages for at least the next 12 hours. Sorry about that.

Remember, I still love each and every one of you more than any of your other potential allies do :)
31 Jul 17 UTC Spring, 1902: Sorry everyone - been swamped the past 24hrs. Will get to your messages within the next few hours.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: As a public and irrevocable statement, I'd like to state that my single purpose in this game will be the destruction of Germany and Austria by whatever means it takes. I place my units under the guidance of whoever is willing to carry this task on. Nothing personal, naturally, but, still, that's my single and only goal.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yeah. No one saw that coming.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Maybe you should send out your acceptance of a deal with more time left in the phase so we could react to it.
I didn't want this but when you spend 44 hours being unwilling to help me, I'm going to react negatively.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Interestingly, your talent for sarcastic mockery reminds me that I was once the victim of a stab hailed the League's most effective stab, in that edition, and I survived through it. Let's see if I can repeat the feat.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Indeed, maybe. But consider I was far from unwilling, it just so happens that you were essentially demanding my submission.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Which, a careful observer will note, is precisely what Austria got from you.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'm confident a blind observer would reach a similar conclusion as well.
03 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Same here Russia, would have stuck to the agreement if you didn't say yes just an hour before the deadline. I had too little time to completely change the plan Austria and I put in place just hours before, as you kept saying no. I completely understand your thirst for Germanic blood though ;-)
08 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1903: Very busy couple of days. Will get back to you later tonight!
15 Aug 17 UTC Spring, 1904: Ooh. D-day or Dunkirk? The channel has been crossed!
19 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1904: Dunkirk, it appears.
27 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: I always love it when people NMR when they're guaranteed to capture centers from a rival of mine.
27 Aug 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: That wasn't an NMR, it was ordered all holds. I figured there wasn't any point in attacking. Wrongly, as it turns out. I'm afraid I was lied to often enough by you too that I gave up.

Maybe keep talking to your victims next time and don't blow us minnows off.
04 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: sorry about this guys.
04 Sep 17 UTC Autumn, 1906: just missed by a few minutes
08 Sep 17 UTC Spring, 1907: I hope we aren't about to witness 2 NMRs...
