29 Dec 08 UTC Spring, 1904: It was a short massage because I was interupted by Italy killing me. Good game, Italy.
30 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: Good game, Austria.
30 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: Italy! Ha! What about me! After all I've done for you!
30 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: So you sent me a fruitcake. Thanks. I guess.
30 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: That was damn good fruitcake, you're welcome.
30 Dec 08 UTC Autumn, 1904: I'm not sure I'd consider eggplant to be a "fruit"......
03 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Feck, don't you just hate it when you forget to enter orders?

Still good luck to everyone, this is an interesting game if ever there was one.
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: AT Mahan was banned (probably for having more than one account), and the game has been paused so you can find a new player to take his place if you want to.
Enter /unpause into this Global chatbox tab to vote to unpause now, and the game will be unpaused once everyone has voted.
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Well, it looks as if "France" got the victory outside the game that she could not earn within it. She took out my closest ally at a crucial time. Was Mahan punished for being the one guy yet to betray me? Is this a site that thinks Diplomacy is a game of betrayal, and betrayal only? I don't know how old the bureaucrat playing France is, but she is too immature for the game. Even if Mahan had multiple log-ons, Diplomacy is rich with possibilities for cheating. As in the real world, orders can be intercepted and re-written, people aren't who they seem, blah, blah, blah. Someone point me to where the adults play Diplomacy and I'll join. As for this game, better give it to France before you are banned from the site. The twit's poor, fragile ego must really depend on this.
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: ... What? If he was multi-accounting then he should be banned. They're the rules, you can't be caught breaking them and not face the consequences.
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: As far as I am aware the creator of this site chose the rules not you and Mahan. Diplomacy has many opportunities for cheating but I'd bet that even the creators would prefer that one person didn't control more than one country behind a variety of names.

Your "closest ally" threatened to use his various multi accounts to follow me around on the site just to ruin every game I play. Since he was stupid enough to tell me this it serves him right. For someone with an alleged 23 year experience of of this game he should really not be so surprised at seeing a stab and to go to such lengths was ridiculous and immature ON HIS part especially after he was preaching about self respect.

I see now that you obviously new about his plans too. Shame on both of you. Your continued rude and ignorant "analyses" behind a façade of words which you clearly don't understand of my person are poor reflection on you.
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: /unpause
04 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: PirateJack has voted to unpause.
Voted: PirateJack Remaining: Ichthys,LouV,Prefect1.
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: So are we gonna unpause this or not? It's unlikely that anyone will take over from Germany when France is occupying two of his home centres...
05 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I think someone might take over. Lets wait a couple of days at least. I've seen people taking over countries with zero SCs.
06 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: those are usually mistakes though!
06 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: RickKnight has taken over Germany.
06 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: And we have a winner! Shall we unpause now?
06 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: /unpause
06 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: Ichthys has voted to unpause.
Voted: Ichthys,PirateJack Remaining: LouV,RickKnight,Prefect1.

09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Have I ever mentioned how much I hate waiting?
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Lol @ Turkey - I'm pretty sure many of the phases have run their full length because you don't finalise orders :p We can ask the mods for a forced unpause if it's not done soon.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: All part of the plan, plus I sometimes can't even get on once a day so the longer times are useful to me... This though, this is over the top >_>.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Besides, it would be unfair on Italy and Germany if we forced an unpause. I don't want to gain an advantage solely because they missed a move or two.
09 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I wasn't say it we do one now! :)
11 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm almost tempted to ask the mods for a forced unpause by now... If anyone else wants a forced unpause say so now. I'll post it in the forum if you other two wish for it.
12 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Okay, does anyone else reckon that Italy/Germany ain't coming back? Should we ask for a forced unpause?
13 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Go for it.
13 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: This will give France the victory, but I guess we have no options
14 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Okay, it has been posted, if the rest of you would go show your support it would be useful.
15 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: And we have unpause, yay!
18 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1906: I dunno, Prefect. Italy looks to have a pretty strong position so far.
18 Jan 09 UTC Spring, 1906: And I'm an idiot >_>.
21 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: GameMaster: The Mikado has taken over Italy.
21 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: Hi, I'm your new Italy!

Please let me know what's going on.

And feel sure that I wouldn't be playing if I didn't think my position had potential.

Let the dealing begin!
22 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1906: GameMaster: TheRageVirus has taken over Germany.
24 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: GameMaster: Madsculpin has taken over Germany.
24 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Wow, I can really see you doing well.
25 Jan 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: Oh poosticks.
01 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1909: Good game Ichthys, you managed to persuade The Mikado into taking a deal that was basically impossible to achieve in the time frame left to him and secured your victory because of it. Congratulations.
05 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Have I ever mentioned how you're a cruel, cruel person, Ichthys? :P
05 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: I thought you'd be amused when the game didn't end, your last comment really set you up for it.
05 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Sorry Turkey but I try to keep my promises and an agreement to let me win in exchange for your SCs was too good an opportunity to pass up. I know it's cruel, but what goes around comes around - I'm sure it will happen to me in the future.
05 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Heh, I had accepted my loss, though I see now in retrospect that I shouldn't have written that last bit :P. Still, good game all. Keeping to your word is something I agree with so I'm not that annoyed by it.

Wish I'd kept my mouth shut though >_>.
06 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Wow. I just realized that when my points come in for this game I'll be over 1000.
06 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Nice. What were your most recent hauls? I seem to remember your score being much lower. :)
06 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: Well, a couple of days ago it was 115.
06 Feb 09 UTC Spring, 1911: I've just finished three games with 14, 12, and 13 supply centers, respectively.
