30 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1907: Welcome to the game
31 Dec 19 UTC Spring, 1907: I'm already enjoying this game. It will be fun watching England win and ensuring he does.
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If Britain wins, France can and should be blamed as well.
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: If Britain wins, it is because I helped him win. I should get CREDIT, not blame. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Thank you France, indeed blame is a word that will never be found in the annals of diplomacy associated to your name. Your friendship will be forever cherished and remembered, England bows to your valor!
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: Italy, you are invited to join us at any time, we will always welcome you with open arms.
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: How about me...
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: The Austrians will always be our friends.
31 Dec 19 UTC Autumn, 1907: We invite the Turkish to seriously reconsider their loyalty before it's too late for them as well.
01 Jan 20 UTC Spring, 1908: I don't really like all this rivalry in the common chat, I apologise for the tone of my message earlier, I should have known better than to post something like that. I am often surprised by how words like friend, enemy, honour and loyalty are used to address the core of a player while in actuality they are mostly fruit of circumstances and random assignment on the board. On a different board, the same players, would have most likely different feelings towards each other. The double edge of online gaming is that you never know if someone is playing a role (after all it's a game, it's meant to be played) or actual feelings are to be read between the lines. In absence of information, I will assume the second for all of you.

I am sure that if we were to meet in real life we would all be friends talking about Diplomacy. I hope that behind the press you are all having fun with the game. Happy new year, folks! May 2020 be your best.
01 Jan 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Yes, I understand that you are all people as well and I thank you for playing with me. I joined this game to have fun, and it was. I’m sure you all played in your best interest and this was the outcome. Happy New Year.

04 Jan 20 UTC gg, congrats counterblitz
04 Jan 20 UTC thank you! GG everybody!
04 Jan 20 UTC @youko, I can finally ask you (or whoever knows). Was there an agreement with early France to keep bouncing ? Some sort of secret alliance, or simply France decided to not build "anti-italian" fleets on its own?
04 Jan 20 UTC In the early turns I just wanted to avoid France or Germany attacking me, and I requested France to demilitarize Marseilles and Piedmont. In Spring 1904 France asked to bounce our units to trick you and lower your guard, yeah, but I was never big into having an alliance with France; the real alliance I had after the first turns was with Austria. Unfortunately I can't check the early messages I sent to Austria, the earliest one still saved is from Spring 1908. So I'm not sure if I talked with Austria about having an alliance with France.
04 Jan 20 UTC I assumed back then that, because of the threats that they were facing at that time, France couldn't attack me so they left me alone. Apparently Germany betrayed them in 1901, and France was very friendly with me after the betrayal.
04 Jan 20 UTC gg folks!
05 Jan 20 UTC Ah, my suspicions were right! But I wouldn't have thought the bouncing tactic was instigated by France, quite an odd strategy.

@youko: FYI at the bottom of the page next to "Archive" there is link to "Messages" where you an access all your press history.
05 Jan 20 UTC I know nobody cares, but in the Judge and post-Judge era players have begun to refer to negotiations with each other as "press." That's not press, never was and never will be. Horrible misuse of the term. I may have to write an article about this for Diplomacy World.
