05 Mar 17 UTC Is Russia here, available? I have not heard from Russia in a long time either.
09 Mar 17 UTC Since it seems we aren't continuing soon, should we say who we are? I was kind of curious this concerning who was who.
09 Mar 17 UTC I'm here!
09 Mar 17 UTC As I guess anonimity is no longer that important in 1914 anyway, I'd be open to that.
09 Mar 17 UTC Are we drawing, then?
09 Mar 17 UTC Yeah this is done. Loathe as I am to let the game end here, I'm voting Draw as well. I worry we're not actually going to ever restart.
09 Mar 17 UTC Moderator: (Peregrine Falcon): Hello everyone,
I've messages Turkey about returning to the game. You all should continue discussing how you would like the game to end.
Should he not return or respond, it could be possible to find a replacement, unpause and allow Turkey to CD, or obviously draw yourselves.
09 Mar 17 UTC I do not, in 1914 after a three-week pause, want to find a replacement so this game can keep going at 3-day phases.
09 Mar 17 UTC I think a draw is fine. At this point, it seems best.
10 Mar 17 UTC Hey guys,

I'm really sorry. Life has kinda turned into a shit storm, and as is obvious, I can't make the commitment to continue playing. At this point if you want to find a replacement for me to keep playing, please do. I won't ask for a draw as I don't think that's fair to you guys who have been waiting.

Seriously, I'm really sorry. All of you are stand up players, and I've really enjoyed the opportunity to play with you. When my life decides to stop punching me in the nuts, I'd love to play again sometime.
11 Mar 17 UTC A draw is fine with me, you clearly earned your spot by surviving this long. Russia, are you willing to draw this here? If so, let's do that and call it a game. If not, that's totally understandable, we'll just need to get a new Turkey on board.
11 Mar 17 UTC Addressing this tomorrow!
11 Mar 17 UTC I'm fine with a draw! This has been an awesome game, and replacing Turkey would certainly change too many things. Besides, Turkey has clearly earned a place in the draw (even though I'd bet we'd reach 1920 way before a draw seemed a clear outcome).

Now, while I hate to be this person, I feel someone has to ask this (as it has been brought forward before): is Italy to be included in the draw? While I'm not particularly opposed to it, and usually opposed to reducing draw just for the sake of it, the remaining powers are all very solid in their positions, and none can realistically end the year with less than 4 SCs and a stable position, while Italy can only hopefully survive this very season.

I'm ok with a draw regardless of what we decide, so I'm voting draw tomorrow, or Monday. Just waiting to see if someone has an opinion on the matter.
12 Mar 17 UTC I don't feel like it is worth the time to eliminate Italy. All it would do is hurt Turkey's RR, which I would feel bad about.

I want to repeat that it was amazing playing with you all. Hope to see you guys again in the other game getting set up, and want to give Turkey best wishes for dealing with his life.
13 Mar 17 UTC (Also, it might be worth noticing I'm not opposed to pausing indefinitely until Turkey is once again able to play again. I'm just opposed to arranging a sub)
13 Mar 17 UTC If this were still an ongoing game, and we were considering drawing or pausing, I'd want to eliminate Italy -- not out of any personal motive, but just because he's in a very eliminatable position and I prefer draws to be as small as possible.

But we're not in that situation, and it feels like far more hassle than it'd be worth to try and start the game up, play two rounds to eliminate Italy, and then draw. I vote in favor of calling it here, and including all currently-surviving players in the draw.
16 Mar 17 UTC I don't think it's worth eliminating Italy, especially since we apparently have a replacement game.
16 Mar 17 UTC Russia, what do you think?
19 Mar 17 UTC It's cool that this never-ending game has just become a part of my Webdiplomacy life
19 Mar 17 UTC Good game all. I'm on my way back from break, so I'll go join the new game, and do press for it tonight.
