23 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: Does anyone know what our 'crashed' status mean? It sounds pretty ominous...
23 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1903: It is the end of the world as we know it....
;-)
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey guys I am going to be gone from friday to monday can we pause the game? Thanks!
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: It, apparently, means that there was a problem processing our game, and when the bug is sorted out, things should return to normal... I posted a question on it on the forum..
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Whoa! Just as I say that, it gets fixed. Score.
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Wait.... we had a build phase...
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Turkey, Italy and Germany all lost our builds.
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: The turn should be turned back when the admin gets to it. Apparently, we should just give it time. I vote to pause, as Russia asked, to assure we get our builds.
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: /pause
23 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Oh... we actually need to vote.... awkward...
24 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Austria: can you pause it so Kestas can repair our builds.
24 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: Hey Farmerboy...do you have a backup plan in the event that the game doesn't pause? Have you found a potential sitter?
24 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: This could be quite a problem.
24 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1904: England: can you pause to give Russia the time he needs to go out of town?
25 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Hello all...

It looks like Russia didn't get the pause that he asked for on Thursday. What's the protocol here? Is he fair game? Somehow that doesn't seem fair, but on the other hand...

Anyway, what are everyone's thoughts?
25 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: I voted for the pause, but, one should expect that their pause may not go through. As such, game is fair, but, those who did not pause should be scolded.
25 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, I'll know to expect no mercy if I'm in the same situation.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Though, we should give him his pause now... that would be mean.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well, I paused every phase in the hopes that the rest of us would do the same, but apparently it didn't work. He's going to lose another unit because he's not here to submit his retreat orders.

Next phase is the builds phase - he will get to rebuild the one that will be disappearing in a few minutes.
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: Is Russia in CD?
26 Jul 09 UTC Autumn, 1904: hey there!!!
28 Jul 09 UTC Spring, 1905: Austria, no chance of finalizing one of these times?
07 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: hey guys - just found out that I can go away for the weekend. can we pause?
07 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: i'll be leaving in a few hours
07 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: OK, I can do that...but when will you be back?
07 Aug 09 UTC Autumn, 1907: And if it looks like the pause might not go through (for whatever reason), you'd better start looking for a sitter.

As widely discussed on the boards, pauses are voluntary, and expire after every submission phase is completed (if all players do not submit).
07 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1908: Hey Bunjeeman...you need to submit a pause if you want the game to stop!!!
25 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1913: Gentlemen...

At the end of this fall season, we are going to be in a great big stalemate. May I suggest a draw?
28 Aug 09 UTC Spring, 1914: No draw, eh?
29 Aug 09 UTC Didnt see the draw offer, so, sorry for the lack of response. That being said, is the offer still available? What are your thoughts?
29 Aug 09 UTC I'm still up for it. I think that we all deserve a pat on the back for this one ;)
29 Aug 09 UTC Out of curiosity, what were your next moves going to be, Turkey?
29 Aug 09 UTC I was going to hit Mun with Tyr, supported by Boh. War would move to Mos, and be replaced by Gal. In the south, I would take Naples. That would (if it worked) get me to 18.

How about you?
05 Sep 09 UTC I was going to take St. Pete with Finland, supported by Norway and move the Fleet in the Norwegian Sea to the Barents. Prussia would attack Warsaw, Silesia attack Bohemia, Munich attack Tyrolia. Tuscany was to attack Venice, supported by Piedmont, which was supported by Marseilles. The Western Med was to attack Tunis. That would have gotten me to 18.
