27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: For role-playing should I only use French on global?
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Yes, but Quebecois French. And poutine for everyone. You should read everything I say with a NY accent.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: But do New Yorkers have a written language?
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Yeah, but I don't want to insult anyone ;) Not yet anyway!
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: LOL. I guess its time to hit the waves for me.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Actually, as Florida I should be careful what I say about NY'ers since half of them live here too....I might lose the next election.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Ah, I don't know Quebecois French, I tried in the past but it is too different from what I'm used to speaking in colloquial language.

Poutine however, we shall be open to Damming the channel to the great lakes so that they can be filled with it, so that the lands can have all the poutine they desire for eternity.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: For some reason I'm feeling hungry, and wondering what our southern friends have to offer.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Haha, they should expand the Florida empire into GA and then turn one of the other Florida SCs into a NY SC, like Gibralter on the other map.
27 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: And Mexico would need a center in California as well.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I'd take an SC in Florida. Or New York for that matter.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I wonder how a player with four SCs on the corners of the map would do... probably lose half and gain a minor foothold with one, with one which is providing support to a friendly power (for the time) as a best case for the early game.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Although as far as builds go that would be an extremely powerful position.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Anyone hear anything from Texas or Mexico?
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Neither.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: There's still 8 hours left, so maybe they'll jump in. Too many games recently ruined by NMRs. Maybe if they haven't shown up with a couple of hours left we can have a mod pause the game in hopes of salvaging it before it gets ruined?
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm not opposed to a pause. Texas and Mexico are fairly important players. If neither of them can start first season the game won't evolve the way it was intended to.
28 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I sent an email to the mods. If they pause it, we can unpause once everyone is here.
29 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: (goldfinger0303): Hello everyone. I've been asked to pause this game until Mexico and Texas are gotten hold of. If more people than just Cuba and New York are okay with this, then I'll go ahead and do it. Please, voice your yeas and nays here.
29 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm okay with it, but I don't want it to be permenant.
29 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Thanks goldfinger. If they don't show they can be forced into CD, and we can recruit replacements.
29 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm definitely fine with the game being paused. At least this would give a better advantage to the people that join.
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: I'm putting up a pause vote, and have asked that Texas and Mexico be removed from the game so replacements can be found. If granted, I want to make sure we find players and get up and running quickly, so feel free to ask any quality reliable players you know if they would be interested. When and if the spots come open, it will be first-com, first-serve. Is this agreeable?
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: The Californians have agreed to do this.
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: British Columbia is ok with it
30 Jun 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Cuba lobs its ascent.
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 1999: Go ahead and pause it
01 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 1999: sorry, would have agreed earlier but was away quite often this weekend.
01 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Hmm, players didn't get forced into CD either. We can cancel, play until the CDs happen and draw, whatever the consensus is. Another game can be started.
02 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I'm okay with either one of those options.
02 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: I'm alright with either as well.
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Why is Mexico CD but Texas isn't?
03 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 1999: Not sure
04 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: They are both out now. Do we draw and start fresh with a full deck?
04 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: I'm fine with that.
05 Jul 13 UTC Spring, 2000: Works for me.
07 Jul 13 UTC Autumn, 2000: So we're playing on?
08 Jul 13 UTC It looks like that's up to Quebec.
