06 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1901: good luck everyone :)
06 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1901: Enjoy the game!
15 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1907: Hope everyone is having/had fun so far. Sorry for Austria and Germany to get destroyed. I guess we are at the beginning of the end now.
15 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1907: This is actually my first classical game (7 players game). I had only played 5 players version and one 34 Players version before, that too almost 8-9 years ago.
15 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1907: I want to see how good the AI version of the game was (playing with bots); which i think was not there when i played last time. So actually this game is accidental :) as i thought i was creating a version of the game to play with bots. That's why the title itself "Me versus bots 5". When i first saw the messages was actually wondering for few seconds was it coming from bots which to my knowledge is not yet set up but soon might be i guess.
15 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1907: We are all bots. We just passed the Turing test...
15 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1907: ha ha :)!
20 Apr 21 UTC Spring, 1909: Any chance for a draw? I feel this war is only going to get hurtful.
02 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: I will very likely be out of reach of the internet from Tuesday till Sunday this week due to a holiday. Please could we agree to a pause tomorrow? There's a small chance our camping holiday will be called off (we have a leaking boiler, sigh), but if not I will likely have no charge on my phone etc.
02 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1911: That’s fine
02 May 21 UTC Spring, 1912: We could also call a draw...
02 May 21 UTC Spring, 1912: Hah, no thanks!
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: My boiler is fixed so it looks like I'm going camping after all from tomorrow till Sunday. Please could we pause? I've cast my Pause vote.
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Austria, Russia, can we pause please? I can email the moderator if necessary, but I'd rather not.
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Re-reading the forum rules it seems a Pause is only forced for an emergency. I would rather have a pause, but if you don't agree then I guess I will just have to find a way to get access each day.
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Well, we would love to draw...
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: You’ve offered the draw and we would like to carry on. You can’t refuse to pause by demanding a draw. As far as I can see that is the only reason you haven’t done so.

“ The pause is there to stop players from missing their orders, but is not part of the game. As such pausing or unpausing should not be used for diplomatic gain, such as refusing to unpause unless other players will draw the game. If it is being abused staff may step in to sort it out. “
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Interestingly I find this mention in a forum message:

'To clarify, the mods won't pause a game if someone objects unless it's a serious emergency (think "I'm evacuating for a hurricane" not "I'm going camping for the weekend").'

https://www.webdiplomacy.net/contrib/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=578&p=16010&hilit=pause+moderator#p16010

They even mention camping, hah.
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: I've since learnt that the campsite has wifi and electricity so I should be OK after all.
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: That’s not so bad then and I’m glad we can carry on, as I’d obviously prefer that to pausing. Having said that I still think it is poor form/unsportsmanlike to refuse to pause by trying to force a draw vote due to your standing in the game. Every game I’ve been in previously has been respectful if opponents can’t enter orders, regardless of whether that player is doing well or badly (that is if a player doing badly hasn’t suicided already!)
03 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: Indeed, same for me. Oh well, let's press on.
04 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: This games is a prolonged dying for our side. In war this would be very taxing on population and would not last this long. You may call it "unsportsmanlike" but we need to do everything we can to force a draw. From our perspective it is "unsportsmanlike" to prolonge it like that. Your victory is just a matter of time as errors in judgment will eventually happen on our side.
04 May 21 UTC Autumn, 1912: If you wish to not prolong the game, please could you mark your orders Ready? Thanks.
13 May 21 UTC Thanks for the game everyone. Nice to have a trustworthy alliance without a stab.
13 May 21 UTC gg, well played you two
