27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:These jokes are so bad... I'm going to Pak my bags, I can't stan this!
27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:That's fine, Russia. You Congo.
27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:Kenya... maybe now I don't want to go. Come on, you're making me cry. I'm Bal-ing. Kans someone cheer me up?
27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2003: [South-Africa]:Hello everyone! I just joined to replace whoever was South Africa before. Could someone please tell me who my predecessor was allied with?
27 Apr 19 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:Read your press. I don't think you were allied with anybody.
28 Apr 19 UTC Autumn, 2003: [South-Africa]:Thanks, that appears to be right.
03 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Kenya]:My apologies, everyone. My timing has been all off, with real life obligations, and I can't seem to get my shit together and stop NMRing, so I'll go ahead and surrender.
04 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Frozen-Antarctica]:Sorry that real life is a drag. Hope things get better for you.
05 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Oz]:Really interesting to see the missed turn/NMR/RR changes. It will likely slow down games (especially with a large amount of users, like this one) but it should make games more fair. Interesting :)
05 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Russia]:Agreed, Oz. We've made sure that 10-day games have 0 excuses, but if there's an argument against the current excuse number just email webdipmod@gmail.com
07 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
08 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
08 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: [Near-East]:pffft... Please everybody push ready and let's go on :)

10 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: [China]:Excused delays are the worst thing to happen to this server.
10 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: [Brazil]:Eh, everyone only gets 1. It slows things down for sure, but isn't that better than games being ruining by someone missing a critical turn due to real life circumstances?

Obviously, you should only play if you have time to, but sometimes life happens.
10 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: [Ghana]:Well in general it was a good idea i think, but in big games it is reeeeally annoying
10 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: [Frozen-Antarctica]:I agree that real life should take president, but you only have to check once every day, and it only takes a few minites.
11 May 19 UTC Spring, 2005: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
12 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Oz]:yeah it's tough. It is more fair to do the games this way, but it is really a huge delay
12 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: [Oz]:especially in larger games. In the general games with 7 people it shouldnt be too big a deal
13 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2005: GameMaster: Leo_Nordman was banned: Multi. The time until the next phase has been extended by one phase length to give an opportunity to replace the player.
Remember to finalize your orders if you don't want to wait, so the game isn't held up unnecessarily!
22 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2007: GameMaster: Game was extended due to at least 1 member failing to enter orders and having an excused missed turn available. This has un-readied all orders.
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:Note that my draw vote was entered prior to this turn. But I appreciate the response my aggression garnered.
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Western-Canada]:Aggression begets aggression
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:You come up with that all on your own, Socrates?
29 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Western-Canada]:My mom helped but that's kind of you to assume I'm capable of such prose

30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [China]:So if Libya goes into CD, we gonna draw this up or let the world descend into chaos?
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:Libya will go into CD for about 5 minutes before someone picks it up. Libya's spot is in excellent positioning overall, depends on the player who takes it up.
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Russia]:Also, I don't expect a CD from the Libyan player. "Visited in last 24 hours"
30 May 19 UTC Autumn, 2009: [Libya]:Sorry everyone. Work has been stupidly busy. I've had time to log in but not enough time to think about my moves. This is the first time I've really appreciated the new system.
01 Jun 19 UTC [Russia]:Hey all, it will take a long time to eliminate any one of us. I'd advise a draw at this point.
01 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:to be honest I see a lot of stalemates here
01 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:I would agree, but I died ages ago xD
01 Jun 19 UTC [Western-Canada]:Alright, my vote is in but I'm still interested
02 Jun 19 UTC [Kenya]:I would like to see it progress a bit more. How's it going, Ghana? I Ghana be honest, I knew you were a Ghana the moment I saw you.
02 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:Im great but - not ghana lie it was sad to be eliminated
02 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:how kenya come up with such a bad pun? xD
02 Jun 19 UTC [Libya]:GG everyone.
02 Jun 19 UTC [Russia]:GG!
02 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:Magnetic I've got to say. Smart call on the draw!
02 Jun 19 UTC [Ghana]:looking at the map I think you would have been the next country to die, so gj to you!
02 Jun 19 UTC [Russia]:That's right. Although China was technically the world's enemy, I was super unstable especially with Libya in Poland. If we continued I was likely to be eliminated and we may have seen a 3WD or 4WD, with a possible solo attempt from Libya. If I were anyone else on the board I wouldn't have lobbied for it
02 Jun 19 UTC [China]:Thanks for partying with me fellas :)
02 Jun 19 UTC [Argentina]:Good Game all glad to see us come to a good concession :)
04 Jun 19 UTC [Kenya]:I don't get why you're all Russian to a draw. I think Libya played thr game Braziliantly. I think watching him China solo would've been great, and I'm not Ghana lie, seeing him win would've been totally Ozome. And when he won, he could've been all up India face. Of course, he wouldn't have done that. He's so Sweden and nice. In fact, I think it would've been safe Tibet on a Libyan win. Anyways, I Ghana go and stop filling up the Chad, but I'm still Balkan at this draw. Oman, I'm so sorry for the pins. Kenya give me a break?
04 Jun 19 UTC [China]:8/10 effort, 3/10 execution.
04 Jun 19 UTC [Kenya]:Are you Syrias?
04 Jun 19 UTC [Argentina]:Darn tootin
