10 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1906: Uhh never mind you probably informed someone, I thought this was a different game.
23 May 15 UTC Autumn, 1907: (goldfinger0303): Wrote something little up. Will go into more detail after builds
24 May 15 UTC Spring, 1908: I kind of forgot the phase had ended and then left on a prolonged day trip to the city. Sorry.
31 May 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Fast turn there
01 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1909: (goldfinger0303): New commentary up.
01 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Six hours left and only two sets of orders in...good thing it's WFO
02 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Sorry, I got laid up with a case of food poisoning last night. I might need a couple more hours for this phase.
02 Jun 15 UTC Spring, 1909: Awh, that sucks. Hope you feel better soon. Take all the time you need c:
02 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Thanks for the extra time everyone. Let's continue!
05 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: We can ask the mods to extend the phases to three days if two is a bit short for everyone.
05 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: I would personally prefer that to uncertain phase lengths of wfo. Of course we could all get our orders in by the deadline. That would work too.
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Welcome new Italy!
11 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: Thanks all! Looking forward to it!
13 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: (A_Tin_Can): Some commentary is up at http://webdiplomacy.net/forum.php?threadID=1234169#1234169
13 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1909: (A_Tin_Can): I've also given a bit of commentary on a couple of points from past phases too. Commentary christmas came early!
22 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Helloooo Russsiaa???
23 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Sorry guys, will fill in my orders momentarily
23 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: This is why you don't wait until the last minute to enter moves
23 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: That's my line.
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: Could I get a pause as my computers hard disk has abruptly died?
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: No problem. Sorry to hear about the computer trouble.
25 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: (A_Tin_Can): Paused by request.
26 Jun 15 UTC Autumn, 1910: I should be good to go now
01 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: Once again, my preference is to increase phase length if people are finding two days too fast. Waiting for orders every single phase is less than ideal.
01 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: I cannot believe I just did that...
02 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: According to the commentary thread, Russia must give up his spot to a new replacement player due to overseas trip. Anyone else just want to call this one? It's 1912 already and the Russian player had been with us since the beginning...I'm not crazy about having to start over with another replacement. Just putting the idea out there.
02 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: I'm fine with another long pause if it'll help us keep Russia. Doesn't bother me how long the game takes.
02 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1911: I hardly care either way. Draw, pause, replacement..
04 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: RUSSIA NEEDS YOU, YOUNG TSAR! CHECK YOUR NOTES FOR INFORMATION
07 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1912: Greetings, after a brutal battle a new Czar (I spell it that way, deal with it) has risen. While he may be a bit neurotic, I assure you, he is much more sane than most of Russia's past rulers (which isn't saying much). Regardless I am a good sportsman and wish you all the best of skill (this is Diplomacy after all, not Risk), I hope we will have a good game, and may the best player win!
10 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1912: Oh wow, retreats happened. Time to see where to go with this.
16 Jul 15 UTC Spring, 1913: (A_Tin_Can): http://english.stackexchange.com/questions/43509/czar-vs-tsar-origins-and-pronunciation

(also I posted in the commentary thread)
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Quick question, are we allowed to bribe players with +1s to do our bidding? I hear Leon has a surplus.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: Kind of wanted to force a fight me or stop the solo dichotomy. Overkill was needed for you to not go "porque no Los dos". More tomorrow.
20 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1913: (A_Tin_Can): I wrote some more commentary.
24 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: I should have internet on my holiday destination so a pause probably won't be neccessary but just so you know: I'm on holiday the coming two weeks.
26 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: Okay folks I think we can call it here. Put your votes in if you're ready.
27 Jul 15 UTC Autumn, 1914: +1
28 Jul 15 UTC That is the most bizarre disband I have ever seen. I do not understand why you want an English solo instead of a four way draw, but be my guest.
28 Jul 15 UTC Actually you are the one without a draw vote down. I have made my position clear.
28 Jul 15 UTC Notice, I said four way. Not five.
28 Jul 15 UTC Notice how little I care about you getting your way.
28 Jul 15 UTC Actually, if you care little about it you would acquiesce to what I wish, since it implies you don't mind. The fact you seem to be trying to deny all of us (except Italy) a better result shows how much you care about my opinion.
28 Jul 15 UTC Nobody else has a problem with the draw, so I'm hardly trying to deny them anything!
28 Jul 15 UTC Look I'very seen all of you a message for a way to get your five way, but you have to earn thE weaker result I will not be dissuaded by a disband and weak threats.
29 Jul 15 UTC Due to the heart felt plea of Italy and verification of his value by England. I bring this game to a close.
29 Jul 15 UTC Good game everyone! This was a lot of fun and a good learning experience. I hope everyone else took away something from this game as well.
29 Jul 15 UTC Wow, I thought that would take a bit longer. GG everyone!
29 Jul 15 UTC Like they say, the pen is mightier than the sword!
29 Jul 15 UTC Good game all! Glad to be here at the end of the line!

Thank you as well to all those for remaining for keeping me alive!
