21 Mar 11 UTC Spring, 1902: As a courtesy to the rest of us, if you are the last person to ready their orders (and therefore start the next phase), send a mass email to all of us to let us know the phase has changed. Thanks!

@ahfaulkner - I guess in this case first is the worst
28 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Dear Italy and Turkey,

Whichever of you promises to fuck off more will get my support into Greece.

Heart always,

Austria-Faulkner
28 Mar 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ooh! Ooh! I can fuck off like you've never seen!

Yours, etc.
Sultan Charles II
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Also, since we all seem to have orders in, if you hit "Ready", we can go to the next turn...
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't understand the map. Why did the A-H and English units in Vienna and Denmark dissapear?
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Denmark has nowhere to go, just like bulgaria.
I'm not sure about Vienna.
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Vienna should have been able to retreat to Boh or Bud, right?

Maybe it just hasn't received an order yet, we're still in the retreat phase.
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Denmark has lots of places to go; Baltic or Hel. Charles, please ready your retreat.
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Charles - as reluctant as you may be to see this turn come to pass, you have to press "ready" or else we sit in limbo for a week.
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ah, Denmark was an army! I find it hard to keep track of what happens on this board, especially if I'm not directly invovled. I still don't get Vienna though.
04 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: If you're ever curious about what happened no a turn, you can just press the left arrow (back) button under the map. If you do it a few times, it actually starts to look like a little animation
05 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: You can always choose to disband rather than retreat, right?
05 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: you should be able to
05 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: you should be able to
05 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1902: And you also don't have to build all your units if you don't want to, I believe
20 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: King of Albania!
20 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: King of Albania!
20 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 1903: Shouldn't there have been a bounce at NOR?
21 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Just so everyone knows, from April 24th - May 1st I'm going to be in the wilderness. If I manage to find a computer somewhere, I'll definately check in, but for the most part I will be totally out of commission. My moves will be submitted before I leave on Sunday, and I will check back in first thing the following Sunday when I get home.
21 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: No bounce at Norway since Barents was supported by STP
22 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: My condolences to Andrew. You valiantly defended your land, but alas, you are out of the game. Better luck next time.

As for David, if you want we can pause the game until you get back. Let us know.
22 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I didn't know we could pause the game.
I would like that, but I'd understand if you guys didn't want to.
So long as everyone that I am diploming with keeps good communication with me over the next 48 hours, its not necessary to pause.
25 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: I just pressed the pause button. Is it paused? Can someone else press it too?
26 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Ok, so here's the skinny. We can't pause tha game because we all have to press the pause button, and David didn't do so before leaving. As well, he already submitted some sort of orders, as he has a checkmark. Any suggestions? We could play out the turn, but Russia left on the assumption the game would be paused, which I confirmed.

I suggest we all just hold, for the next two turns, with Russia reversing his orders in the fall. It puts him at a minor disadvantage as we see his preliminary moves, but it is the best we can do.

Then in Spring 1905, we do what we were planning for this turn. Sound good?
26 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: That could work out really badly...
26 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Hi all,

Please press the pause vote ASAP as David has not gotten his orders in on time. Then the site admins might pause it for us. To clarify in case David din't mention it to you directly, since his last post on the forum, he asked us to pause it.
26 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: This was the email he sent me about it most recently:
Hey buddy,
Are you going to pause the diplomacy game or whhhhat? PLease don't wait till the very last second to do it.
It was real nice hanging out with you this week.
Sorry I didn't make it to your place on saturday - I ended up in Whitby eating dinner with a dear mamabear of mine (Aaron Pass' Mom) who I haven't seen in years.
Hope all is well - I'm off to the forest for the week. If I die in the great flood that's about to be unleashed on this province, know that I love you and that I leave to you, Eitan Waldman, my banjo and my life's collection of STD's. Enjoy!

26 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: (abgemacht): Hello all,

I've paused this game with the understanding that you are participating in a league and would have all agreed to a pause. If this is not the case, please email me at webdipmod@gmail.com
28 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 1904: For everyone's information, the game will not unpause until we all vote to unpause it. So do so at your leisure. I am not going to until I hear from David that he is back.
02 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: David checked in a day ago, so should be back. Can we all unpause it now?
02 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Game on
04 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: May I suggest that everyone finish up their diplomacy and ready their orders? That way, when Tommy FINALLY unpauses, we can go right to the next turn.
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Sorry... been really really busy... will unpause today. If I unpause, when is the next turn going to be?
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: As it says right above this, the next move will be 1 day seven hours after you unpause. I can't beleive you logged in and still didn't unpause. Fuck, I wanna play again already.
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Can someone just make sure to email everyone when the game is unpaused.
06 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Tommy, what the hell is wrong with you? Press the unpause button!
06 May 11 UTC Spring, 1904: Unpaused!
19 May 11 UTC Spring, 1905: Friends,

I would like to apologize for missing the order deadline this weekend. I was hibernating and thought that the orders were due a day after they were actually due. However, it looks like it didn't affect anything.

Cheers.
20 May 11 UTC Spring, 1905: From the Associated Press:

BREAKING NEWS: REVOLT IN TURKEY

With Constantinople in the hands of an invading Russian army, and Italian marines on the south coast, the Sultan has fled into Persia. A faction known as the "True Ottomans" has declared a new Turkish Republic, and is directing all intact elements of the army and navy to lay down their arms, and swear allegiance to the new Republic of Turkey. Ahmet Yaya, spokesperson for the "True Ottomans", had this to say: "The Republic is in control of the ports, the railways, and the means of government. The treacherous Sultan has raised the ire of our neighbours, and it is time to let them know that the people of Turkey do not want war. To the leaders of the Italian and Russian Empires: It was the Sultan who attacked you - not the people. He has been removed, and now the people rule. Cease hostilities immediately. Allah Akbar!"

No comment has been received from the Italian or Russian governments at this time.
20 May 11 UTC Spring, 1905: yikes
11 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Fuckity!
13 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 1906: Wow,

Half of us forgot to submit orders. Well done boys. Can't say I have much to complain about though :-).
28 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1907: Hi all,
Not that it will change anything, but I'd like to register a complaint about Turkey. My moves last turn were based on the fact that it said Tureky "left" the game, and therefore could not possibly move. I think it was pretty dirty pool to leave and then join again. Similarly, please don't take a week to submit a build next time.
30 Jun 11 UTC Spring, 1907: I'd like to register a complaint about greasy wops.
That is all.
09 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: BOoooooooring
10 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1907: Sorry Y'all - i forget.....again
20 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: Well, I don't know why it said I "left" the game, did I forget to submit orders for a turn? I certainly didn't click a button saying I'd left, or anything, and when you emailed me about whether I was still playing, I responded in the affirmative...
20 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: You didn't have to rejoin the game or anything? If not I forgive you. FYI, you left after you told me you were still playing, hence my confusion.
27 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 1908: I don't think there is much diploming going on, so to speed things up, can we try to ready our orders rather than just submit them from now on?
15 Aug 11 UTC Congratulations Eitan
