26 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: well of course I am trying to garner support against our common enemies

the juggernaut will move against germany, that is just as certain as the fact that turkey will move against italy

did I ever say anything other than trying to unite us against a common foe ?
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: damn, it's now the 5th day the site has been down...
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: its getting depressing... I never noticed how addicted to the DF forums I was until now :(

also, it seems Italy is gona miss a turn too
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: together with austria

and with Nilocay continueing acting out his grudge, well, all chances are gone

not that you and frelock achieved anything, as you literaly fought no one, ever, still, congratulations
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I never understood why someone who doesn't have any direction to retreat into still has to confirm that the army gets disbanded
I mean, the controle panel even sais that no retreat is possible
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: Yeah, this should be fixed.
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: btw, I think the forum will be back soon
the guys who operate the servers told toady they will have it fixed "in a working day"

in other words, the entire weekend they didn't touch the issue at all
makes me rage
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: them not touching it during the weekend doesn't surprise me at all.
but still makes me quite angry though.
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I just hope this time they fix it for good. its no use fixing it if it breaks again tomorrow
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I wonder if I rolled a 6 and the jungle disappeard
27 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1903: I wonder if I rolled a 6 and flew up the stairs and landed spectacularly in the (hopefully still there) jungle. On second thought, that would be a terrible way to waste a 6
29 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1904: gosh, now it has been down for an entire week
29 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1904: Well, toady's just said in the dev blog that he's moved the server along and stuff. Should hopefully be up in the next few days.
29 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1904: damn, this is soo drawn out

the game is over already,a nd the winner decided, yet this game will not be finished before nomvember 5th or possibly even later

boring
29 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: hey, the site is up again !
29 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: Indeed.

Viva le Bay12!
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: too bad that only the devblog is up
when I try to access the forum, it tells me that "No input file specified"
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: weird, the forum works for me
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: hmm, very strange

could you make a threat asking for help regarding my problem ?

30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: i'll post about your problem. but should try clearing your temporary internet files/cache/whatever its called, maybe it would work
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: thanks for making the thread poltifar

also, if it was so easy that deleting my cookies would do the trick, I surely wouldn't have asked for this thread

IO tried emailing toady, but I got an automated answer telling me the mail failed
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: well, it's just as I said, nilocy is playing only for the sake of ruining this game for me.
not even a slight attempt at guarding himself, he is like this terrorist guy who thinks blowing himself up while killing infidels is rewarding or some sort of shit
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: So Nilocy, currently playing germany, is leading leading terrorist attacks against Akroma? That means... Nazi Anti-French Terrorists FTW! What would be cooler than that???
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: well, they would be more awesome if they were winning, because what kind of terrorist are you when you just blew yourself up ?

so, any news on how to fix the forum for me ?
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: the forum is lagging terribly for me, so it takes quite some time to refresh. But from what I can see, there are still no (useful) replies. But I posted it in a thread were Toady was attempting to find and fix all the problems, so I think he'll eventually help if no one else does.
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: and what abour rtd ?
is the jungle still there ?
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: wait, it finally refreshed, got 2 replies:

She most likely made a change to her hosts file, and has the Bay12 forum ip hardcoded to something that isn't correct.

sneak-edit: I had the same problem last night, because of the same reason!




The answer is on the front page of the wiki, in the big "Recent downtime" box. http://www.dwarffortresswiki.net/index.php/Main_Page
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: oh and for RTD, penguin still didnt post the rolls.
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: hmm, in a day or two, fine with me....

arrgh
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: fuck year problem solved
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: thanks
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: well there IS a way to fix it if you are impatient... like its written in the wiki
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: oh ok
30 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: haha, oh wow, just half an hour ago I wanted to get the forum back so badly, and now I realise that there is nothing to post about because it stood still for an entire week, so nothing changed...


sigh
31 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: I hereby fold

as there is no way for me to win this game anyway, I will offer no further resistance
the sooner I lose, the sooner I get my points back (when you have under 100 points, you get them back when you lose)

I need these points as buy-in for the diplomacy tournament

so everyone, please finalize your rounds fast from now, I don't know what the registration deadline is
31 Oct 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: while we are on the topic of it, any of you also registering for the tournament ?
I know, we will probably not come very far, but hey, it will be an interesting experience
31 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1905: I didn't even know there was a tournament... Anyways, I doubt I will join, and probably no one here other than you will. Don't worry, we'll be cheering you on from the spectator's seats! :D
31 Oct 08 UTC Spring, 1905: How about, do it as a "lets all play diplomacy" on the forums?
02 Nov 08 UTC Autumn, 1905: so nilocy, now trying to ruin as much as possible for me by simply not finalizing ?

I will get the points for the tournament anyway, from a different game, so again, you accomplish nothing
02 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1906: Yeah, nice one there akroma, i was out at a party last night, so because i didn't take my time out socialising i'm now spoiling it for you? good logic.
02 Nov 08 UTC Spring, 1906: you were online yesterday, writing me a message here in this game. you could have finalized then
03 Nov 08 UTC so frelock, reckon you could end this game today ?

I will move out of belgium, and unless you make some silly mistakes with the german army in livonia, you should be able to get 18 this turn
03 Nov 08 UTC Sure thing, Akroma.
03 Nov 08 UTC By the way, Nilocy, great convoy to Livonia; I totally didn't see it coming.
03 Nov 08 UTC it would have been better if it came in 03
03 Nov 08 UTC Now we wait for Nilocy and Gaulgath...
03 Nov 08 UTC and after that we will wait for nilocay and gaulgath again, because this agme is so silly, it forces out to confirm the destruction of your unts even without any centers left

oh, and we will have to wait for gaulgath to retreat his fleet

so hey, we will be done by wednesday...
04 Nov 08 UTC haha, oh wow, I survived a juggernaut with 5 centers, even gaining me more points than i spent to get in.
in a way, I am one of the winners of this game
04 Nov 08 UTC Ah, well then. Good game everyone!
