27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Egypt, Britain, are you all okay with the pause?
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: You can contact an admin directly. I believe you're entitled to pause the game.
27 Sep 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: You got it Ukraine. Have a safe trip.
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Voting unpause. Happy to start again whenever everyone is ready.
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Roger that.
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Hi all, I am back in service & I will have my moves in by tonight after I get everything organized.
01 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: I'm ready whenever everyone else is.
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: @Ukraine

Contact an Admin and get this unpaused, please!
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: ^^
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Okay. If Turkey would unpause, this game can resume.
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: That would be good.
03 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Turkey left a few turns ago it seems.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Still here
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: I'm just not moving
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Can you vote unpause so we can keep playing, Turkey?
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: ^^
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Gonna give you a couple more hours to unpause, Turkey, then I'll have to contact a mod.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: In the meantime, I'll have to refer to rule #5 in the rulebook.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: No, not...... rule #5! Have you no compassion?
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: The iron fist!
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Done
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Waiting on Italy now?
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: I unpaused it
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: If you let Germany crush me, he will get a solo. I need help.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: He will have all of Spain and Italy and only be shy a few SCs for a solo.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: And why is Spain hitting me and leaving itself open to Germany?
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: A few SC’s?... it takes 30+ to win. Calm down.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: This map doesn’t lend itself to easy solos, although conversely, not does it lend itself to easily stopping runaway players.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: I'm not even the SC leader, so it seems that Italy is just upset that he is the brunt of my attacks.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: Least none of ya guys joined in in a small square about to be takin out
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: *cough* *cough* Spain
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: I realize my fate, I have a war on 3 fronts. but I do think I speak the truth - you will take me and Spain and Portugal and then become unstoppable since no one is going for you that is another titan.
04 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1998: What do you suppose Ukraine is doing?
06 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Russia and Ukraine are fighting so there is some balance. If no one hits Germany soon, he will rule the board. Look Spain is not even defending against him. I’m trying but positionally he has an advantage and I’m trying to get back into better position. England and Ukraine are allies with him and not hitting him. When he has 9 more SCs from me and Spain what do you think will happen? He will strike a draw?
06 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1999: Britain and I have been strong allies most of this game now. I can’t say the same for Ukraine, but we have respect for the nature of each other’s game. I’m no fool. I’d be an idiot to attack either of them.
06 Oct 18 UTC Spring, 1999: We were allies once too...I appreciate your pragmatism.
07 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Oh @Ukraine. That was foolish of you.
08 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: He sees what England should see - I will eventually backstab and go for a solo.
08 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Nice typo.
08 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Lol
09 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 1999: Looks like we all have orders in if we want to ready up.
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2003: Well-played to the end, Ukraine.

Germany, Britain, are you willing to draw?
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2003: Yes next phase.
29 Oct 18 UTC Autumn, 2003: Yes, once the three of us are alone.
29 Oct 18 UTC Looks like we are now.
29 Oct 18 UTC GG, guys!
29 Oct 18 UTC GG, guys!
29 Oct 18 UTC Yes congrats all of us!
29 Oct 18 UTC I really enjoyed this game. Happy to play with you all again.
29 Oct 18 UTC I gotta be honest, after your proposal for taking Denmark in year 2, I didn't think we'd make it this far together @Britain. Fun playing with you all!
