18 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2000: GameMaster: becket was banned: multi: 47399.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:Can we pause this game? A big hurricane is about to hit the NE US, and many (including myself) will lose power.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:The hurricane a.k.a Hurricane Sandy is being rated on a scale similar to Hurricane Katrina. I;m sure we could ALL pause untill it's over.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:They said the storm surge hitting the coast could be 30 feet high. I feel bad for those on the coast of New Jersey, they're going to get hit bad.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:Yeah, I agree. It's supposed to be a mixture of cold currents and hurricane, making it a mix of the two. So it's like a freak hurricane. ( as in "new)
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [South-Africa]:I am in DC, I am all for a pause
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [South-Africa]:we should all resume by nov 3rd though no matter what
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:Hopefully. If power is lost then who knows when it will be back... :/
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:Nobody paused my games when snow brought London to a halt 2yrs ago. We don't even know whether a pause will be necessary yet.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:Typhoon Son-Tinh has struck Vietnam.....would 16 of us pause for a Vietnamese player or is it just cos it's America and 90% of the members of this site are Americans?
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:I don't mind a pause.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:Vietnam barely has internet, not a good comp. Either way, I'm sure at least 2-3 people in this game are affected if power goes out. the NE US is very densely populated.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Near-East]:No, okay, Vietnam is not a good comparison. So what say you about nobody pausing for me in London - of comparable population density to the US eastern seaboard?
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:We still need 11 people to pause
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:Near-East -- did you ask for one? Not to mention, I'd be willing to bet that the population of this site (which is the relevant number for the discussion) is skewed very heavily towards the US.

I think a pause makes sense.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Western-Canada]:I'm willing to pause, but I will have to out of town and computers for a 4-day period in a couple of weeks and I picked this game because I expected it to be done, or mostly done before then. A few days delay though may take me right into my AFK time. Will I get the same consideration if that happens? What about other players with similar situations?
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:New gameplan -- everyone gang up on Western Canada so they can be done with the game before their trip. :D
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:It's a 1day/phase game, so it will go fast. We can always pause again if need be.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Western-Canada]:Like I said, I'm fine with pausing as long as I know I am not backstabbing myself.
28 Oct 12 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:We have 9 pauses. 2 more! (i think)
