26 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1901: 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.
26 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1901: Game was not supposed to start until Saturday!
26 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1901: That's what I thought.
27 Aug 20 UTC Spring, 1901: I apologize for any delay caused by me. It's my first time playing on this site. However, I've been playing Diplomacy for a long time, and I look forward to the game and to engaging with y'all.

15 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1904: 'y'all'
Do americans really?
15 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1904: Huh
15 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1904: You wouldn't ask that unless you were raised on concrete. All y'all should know that, down here where it's hotter than a stolen tamale, we talk as big as Dallas and as mean as a mama wasp. Even the chickens under the porch know that.
16 Sep 20 UTC Spring, 1904: I see this map is filled with Negrophiliacs.
Very well.

19 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: GameMaster: Bismarck von Australien was banned: Bigotry, Racism, rule 4, 10 violations. 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!
19 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Who was Bismarck? Was it France? It feels like it's gotta be France right? Based on that comment above.
19 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Yeah it was France - you can see in the notices section of the home page
19 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: Well good riddance!
19 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1904: A piece of work for certain.
25 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: 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.
25 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oh no.
25 Sep 20 UTC Autumn, 1905: It was just starting to get interesting. Dang.
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: What are your plans? I can only assume that your fleet in the eastern Mediterranean is coming to aid the Turks against the circling Austrian armies. If so shall we arrange some mutually beneficial moves.

I can see you are working with Austria on the northern frontier however perhaps now is the time to strike before Austria gain too much momentum
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Lol what an error and lapse of attention that was. Looking for some help down in the south though if anyone can lend a hand !
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: It could be that Italy and Austria might be working together. Hmmm.

Don't tell anyone.
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: hi yall I am still here in Finland it is a secret supply center
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: Italy might be working with Austria but I’m sure Austria won’t be working with Italy for long ;)
16 Oct 20 UTC Spring, 1908: That's true
19 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: 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.

23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Sorry this was me - have readied up
23 Oct 20 UTC Autumn, 1908: Ok
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Hey y’all it is russia here why ha Austria not taken Naples and Venice we may never know. Why is Germany not in Germany but they control most of England why does France still technically control apulia if you can here write yes in the chat
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Could Belgium move into Ruhr and it would be more useful yes
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Fun game, eh?
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Yeah
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: It may be that Austria moves in and takes two of my SC's and the game. If so, it's been a good run. For Italy, turning the corner in the west is a big deal. Getting off the peninsula is hard. However, there is also something to be said for wanting to defeat conclusively enemies who have been difficult. And there is something to be said for having a satisfactory alliance in this game. When you can do both, that's the best.
06 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Yep has been a fun one! We had a good alliance even though everything went wrong for me/I made loads of mistakes.
07 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: I have to say that this game has turned out, just as England says, to be fun - after we got rid of the original France. (My sympathies to new France.) Everyone else's been cool.

This is a game, and we do it for fun. Y'all are ok. Thanks.
07 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: It has been a fun game even though I have not been apart of it for awhile good luck to all
08 Nov 20 UTC Spring, 1911: Looks like it's game over anyway.
10 Nov 20 UTC Good game
10 Nov 20 UTC Thanks to you all, I enjoyed the game. Thank you especially to Germany for keeping fighting until the end, Italy for the patient and well-organised play and the new France for taking over a very complicated situation.

Here are few considerations I believe I owe you (especially Italy) with respect to the end game:
1/ I strongly believe that one has to respect the game and the players, and take the shot for the solo when there is the chance to do so. I was recently in the opposite situation where my ennemies have been acting without any sense of self-preservation, and I found it very frustrating.
2/ Although Italy and I have been long-term allies and that I was ready to follow-up on the 2-way draw, I considered that the board was at a tipping point for Italy. With at least two more builds and the fact that Germany pulled up a strong defence (considering the circumstances), I feared that Italy might slowly think about soloing for themselves (maybe with the help of Germany)
3/ I wan't sure I would be much more available for this game in the next days, and I did not want to miss the chance

Good luck for your next games
10 Nov 20 UTC Thanks all - at least I'm still alive in scotland. Fun game and great job Austria!
10 Nov 20 UTC Playing Russia and setting up this game sure was fun, From Austria taking my centers in Warsaw and Sevastopol to telling people where to build it was fun. At least Finland still has the Tsar as the ruler.
10 Nov 20 UTC Thanks for a great game. And it's not every day that Italy gets to end as emperor of France.

Just for the record, I was never under any illusion that I would get anywhere near a solo. I was consciously not guarding my rear. Even if I did, Austria had plenty of other places to capture. It was survive or draw, and enjoy the ride.

Catch you all on the next battlefield.
