23 Apr 11 UTC Spring, 2000: [India]:Good luck everyone & have fun.
24 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 2000: [India]:What is going on?
5 (five) NMR's in very first season!
This is a bad joke & a very sad one for those looking for a decent game.
24 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Brazil]:yeah thats kinda dumb
30 Apr 11 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Libya]:That's why I prefer dipbounced.
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:The name is "Die Hard"... lol. Two against one. I`m almost squeezed here. Help NATO!
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:US killed Osama and Near-East put the blame on me?
05 May 11 UTC Spring, 2003: [China]:....what?
19 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2006: GameMaster: This user was banned: Auto. The time until the next phase has been extended from <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1305769503" unixtimefrom="1305763554">1 hours, 39 minutes</span> to <span class="timeremaining" unixtime="1305842754" unixtimefrom="1305763554">22 hours</span> (one full phase) so you can find a new player to take his place if you want to.
Make sure to finalize your orders if you don't want
to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily.
19 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2006: [India]:What user was banned? I hate the way that this is announced!!!!
Who is no longer playing in this game?
Why are we not told who we are no longer playing with?
19 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2006: [South-Africa]:who got banned?
19 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2006: [South-Africa]:oh, i think it was oz.
24 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [South-Africa]:click 'ready', russia
25 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:I'm still wondering what unit to destroy. Respect the rules, South-Africa.
25 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]:And off course, I can (and I will) use this time to negotiate my existence in this game trying not to be killed.
25 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [South-Africa]:i don't think i'm breaking a rule or even bending one by requesting that you click ready, just figured i should mention it since you are the only one who hasn't. good luck on your negotiations?
25 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2007: [Russia]::)
28 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Russia]:This time nobody can accuse me of procrastination.
29 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [South-Africa]:yay russia! sorry it doesnt look like you were able to negotiate your existence very successfully. If you were over here I'd hook you up with a SC to hang around. Sadly, Russia and South Africa are very separate, geographically.
29 May 11 UTC Autumn, 2008: [Russia]::)
05 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Western-Canada]:I have to go to school in two days. And im afraid i wont be able to check my account. So can i request a pause. Hope you guys understand.
05 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:How long will the pause be for?
05 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Western-Canada]:2 days, I have to study for a major exam...
05 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Okay, just let us know when we are to unpause.
Best of luck with the exam.
06 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:ah, shit. i only just now saw the pause request, my bad. would yall be willing to pause for five days this week (wednesday to sunday)? i'm going to bonnaroo and they don't really have internet out there. i probably also won't be in any state of mind to form a coherent strategy, either, haha.
06 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:I'm actually also on a trip through Texas without my laptop, and though I have my phone, I'd be in total agreement to a longer pause.
13 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:okay, back from my trip, thanks for the pause. ready for the unpause whenever.
17 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Western Canada! Where are you? Why have you not pressed the unpause button?
19 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:What the hell, Weswtern Canada? This is getting ridiculous. Are you just trying to wait us all out till we quit this website and then unpause so you don't get rolled?
22 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:9 days? Canada, come on. There's no excuses; India and SA have sent more messages, you can't have missed them all.

Unpause. Seriously.
23 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:Is there anything we can do about this re: administrators to unpause this game? He's clearly around, he signed in two days ago.
30 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:okay what the hell this is getting ridiculous. is there nothing that can be done?
30 Jun 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:you signed on an hour ago! unpause the game, western canada!
08 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [Ghana]:I'm not entirely sure how to go about getting an admin to fix this or I would do it.... can someone else get an admin please?
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:Since I've long since been eliminated, I won't e-mail, but I did find the mechanism in which to get a game unpaused:

From the Rules section:

Email the moderators at webdipmod@gmail.com, not their personal addresses.

What to send

Always try to have some clear reasons when contacting and do not mention it on the forum. In your report/email text you should include:

If making a general request (e.g for an unpause):
Ensure that you make the subject line useful (e.g. "Unpausing help" or "Phaselength change") so we know we can quickly deal with it in a spare moment - if you don't it might not be solved for some time.
In cases such as drawing/pausing a game standard practice is to check the global chat of the game before acting, so please get other players to post their agreement.
You don't necessarily need everyone to agree, and we will post back into the global chat when we change these settings letting you know.
16 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:I agree, please, please, Mr Adjudicator, UNPAUSE this game!!!
We have been stuck in Pause mode since veary early June.
Western Canada has been back & looked in on this game many times since then & is laughing his socks off at our being stuck in Limbo...
He should banned from playing in all games for this!!!
26 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:I'm tired of seeing this game on my home page - I just e-mailed the mods. Hopefully they'll get back to us in the next few days.
26 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: (fortknox): I've contacted the player. Has there been any contact with any of you with the player since his last global? If so, please PM me and let me know.
28 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: (fortknox): I'm gonna give him 24 hours. Please let me know if he doesn't respond in 24 hours, and I'll force him into CD so you guys can either decide to replace him or leave him sitting there unused.
28 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:That sounds like a good sensible solution provided that he is not allowed to come back unanounced & take control of his units again, like I know they can usually.
31 Jul 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [South-Africa]:So are we gonna restart this game soon?
27 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:How do we contact this fortknox fellow then?
He looks like the man adjudicating our game.
Is he one of the moderators of this site?
29 Aug 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:He is.

And I am all for contacting him again.
06 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:I e-mailed the mods again - but so far no reply.

At least one of you guys should hit up the mods again.
06 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Will do it now.
06 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:Holy crap this game is unpaused.

Hallelujah. Thanks fortknox.
06 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [India]:Yeeeehaa!!!
07 Sep 11 UTC Autumn, 2010: [China]:lawl - India is going to win by default because all of the other players forgot about this game.
09 Sep 11 UTC Spring, 2011: [Ghana]:I haven't been on here in months. Good thing I randomly opened it today.
