03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I am in the process of talking with the TD now. If he thinks it's best that I should play, then I will do my best.
03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: (goldfinger0303): Hi everyone. Just to let you all know, I'll be removing Turkey from this game and replacing him in the tournament. I'm only doing so because this game hasn't gone too far just yet and he's also preventing a Round 4 game from starting.

I am not inclined to let this game re-start, but if there is unanimous approval, I'll allow it to be restarted.
03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Turkey sub needs to roll? No pickle, we can hold the mayo. Lettuce resume with fresh Turkey to add some mustard to the game.
03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Clever. If I could +1 you here, I would.
03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: (goldfinger0303): The sub has been contacted. Just waiting for him to join up. Thank you all for understanding. Since there is a full phase left just send me a PM once he joins and I'll unpause the game.
03 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: (goldfinger0303): Just keeping you all updated, there's a bit of a problem with the code on the site at the moment that is preventing Turkey from entering. I'm trying to get this sorted as soon as possible.
04 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: (kestasjk): Hi guys, Turkey should now be able to rejoin. Thanks for waiting - Kestas
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm here. Thanks for waiting. Anyone want to talk about anything?
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Let's talk about unpausing ... I'm for it.
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: I'm good to go.
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Yes, I believe the game plan for the previous Turkey was to throw a party for everyone in Syria?
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: Wait. Is this the Ankara Crescent variant? Crap.
05 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1901: (goldfinger0303): I unpaused it. Best of luck everyone.
08 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1902: Forgive my lack of press, I'm at a company event which requires more attention than this game ... I will get back to everyone in the morning. Please don't gang up on me because of my silence ;-)
23 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1904: All - apologies. Yesterday was our village carnival, and I am running on about 3 hours sleep. I shall be sending messages tomorrow
23 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1904: Well since the pause has ended, I will send this out to everyone at the same time. As the "new guy", I get not receiving any help from my neighbors. Goes with the territory. But, once Russia and Aus complete taking me out, they will turn on the rest of you. Aus is already working on his second front with Germany. Italy WILL be moved on soon, as Aus will have no where else to go. It is up to the rest of you to stop them as soon as possible. I may not survive, but everyone else MUST stop this before is becomes too big to stop. Thanks and have a nice day!
24 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1904: I'm with ya dude! Let's crush the Cassocks!
24 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1904: England, what have the monks done to upset you?
27 Jun 13 UTC Autumn, 1904: All - I'm going to be away for the weekend, but if my maths is correct, I will be back before the end of S05 diplomacy (assuming no retreats/builds). I will be off-line after tonight
14 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1906: This may be a little premature, but I don't see any way this can turn out well for me... My draw vote is going up.
26 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1907: FYI, I will be offline for most of the weekend, starting in about six hours. I don't think I need a pause.
06 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: I'll be on holidays from Saturday until 27th and without internet access for some of that time. Could you all please pause until Friday so that I can pause it just before I leave? Thx!
06 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: That would be great, as I have no internet access next week.
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: I was going to wait to request my pause since I'll still be here for two weeks before leaving, but it looks like mine will overlap with the tail end of Austria's, so I'll just let everyone know that I will be gone until the 31st.
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: I'll be on holidays from September 1 until the end of the year. Keep calm and carry on with the pause.
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: Seriously, the end of the year? Where are you from that you get 4months "holiday" that's not a holiday, that's a holithirdofayear!
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: I'd rather have a 5 way draw than pause for 5 months.
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: I'm going to assume that Russia is joking.
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: Yep, just playing. I'm not going anywhere and I don't need a pause. :)
07 Aug 13 UTC Spring, 1909: Ok good. I've heard stories about Europeans and their holidays, so it didn't seem too far fetched :-)
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I've found it's the Aussies that stay abroad long enough that their passports expire.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'll be taking my first two week vacation ever. Normally I take a few days plus a weekend and go to Vegas or California. I'm finally taking a trip to Ireland and England. And I feel guilty about taking that much time at a stretch off. They have us trained in the US, that's for sure.
07 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I think I'll dislodge that lvp fleet while I'm there and bring home a French flag as a souvenir :-P
08 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Italy - where in the UK are you going?
09 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I only have 4 days there and I've never been, so I'm going to try to pack as much tourist stuff in while also trying to find some local favorites. We're starting off in Lon, and I want to end up in Lvp to convoy from there to Dublin, then well take 4 days to get across Ireland to Shannon from where we'll catch our return flight.

So far the only things planned are 1 day in London doing a hop-on hop off double decker tour of all the touristy spots, Catching a ferry to Dublin on about day 4, and spending the last 2 days in Dingle Bay. The rest is still up in the air though if you have any suggestions along that route. I'm thinking maybe head south from Lon to Brighton for a day at the beach, and hit Bath on the way to Lvp. My Wife wants to stay a night in a castle - but we'll probably do that in Ireland (American girls all grow up watching Disney and wishing they were princesses :-)
26 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: hmmm... a work event came up that requires me to be away from 1st to 4h of september.... could we extend the pause for a mere 4 days???
27 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Okay with me.
27 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Fine by me too
31 Aug 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: I'm back and will vote my unpause now. Thanks all for your patience.
05 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: germany, ready to unpause?
05 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: thanks for the extended pause, all !
05 Sep 13 UTC Autumn, 1909: Bit busy atm so I won't be able to communicate immediately, but I've hit unpause :)
19 Sep 13 UTC Spring, 1911: Busy couple of days coming up, so I'm not going to finalise my retreat
31 Oct 13 UTC OK Russia. You did exactly 0 of the things we agreed on. Time to draw.
31 Oct 13 UTC We didn't agree on anything. You told me what you needed to see me do, or else you would vote draw. I told you that your suggestions were unreasonable given your SC count and your position in Ukr/Gal. I didn't do what you asked, and you voted draw. So okay, I'll vote draw as well.

Good game all.
31 Oct 13 UTC GG all! Sorry I wasn't as communicative as I should have been but it's been quite a busy time for me recently. Thanks for a great game.
31 Oct 13 UTC Especially with Moderating... If I see one more Blankflag account...
31 Oct 13 UTC Finally! We started this game in May!

Good game all. I'm glad I got the chance to play with those of you I haven't played with before.
31 Oct 13 UTC Yes... This took long.
Good game all.
01 Nov 13 UTC GG all It was ... fun
