15 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: I forgot to say, goodluck all (bit late now we have started of course...but the sentiment still stands !)
15 May 08 UTC Autumn, 1901: same from me!
03 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1906: The new ruler of France greets you all.
24 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1912: The past ruler of Austria greets you all.
29 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: Retreat in Naples is due to bug, Kestas says he has already fixed (see the forum).
I guess all players here do know rulse of Diplomacy, so it is a bit surprising a move so clearly against official rules has been done anyway.
29 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: Well, I wasn't aware of that rule as this site's my only contact with Diplomacy - almost did the same thing this morning in another game, but managed to read the thread and reset my moves before the season ran.
29 Jun 08 UTC Autumn, 1913: Not sure what that means? Why couldln't I retreat to Naples?
To be honest, like Xgong I have only played Dip here and was never aware of this being a bug?
It came up as an option and I selected it, I apologies if this was an underhand move or something, but I can only say I wasn't aware of it being an issue?
I will look it up now so I know for next time, sorry again!
29 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: Ok the rule seems to be as follows -

"A unit cannot retreat to a province that was left vacant by a standoff during the same turn."

Again I apologise for this, I hadn't realised there was a standoff (Still on mobile phone here, not making things easy) and thus saw I was offered a retreat to NAples (a SC) and took it.

Sorry, it wasn't meant to be underhand in anyway (A bit pointless...for me anyway...this late in the game!)

Oh and sorry I realise it was Shisuren not Xgong who answered above :) Colour blindness aint fun :)

Sorry guys, can't say I won't make the same mistake again as I do recall the rule, but wasn't aware I was breaking it (on account of the system letting me move there) :( so in future I will certainly look out for this and try to prevent a similar 'breach' of the rules. Sorry!

30 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: Yeah hopefully this bug will get cleared up soon because it's rather frustrating to have your enemy slip between your finger like that. And for the record, I'm a pretty experienced player outside of this site. Just clearing it up :)
30 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: Sorry again guys :( It really wasn't intentional :(
30 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: never mind Mark. I just assumed everyone was familiar with official Dip rules here, but as Shisuren and you pointed out, this site may well be the only contact with Dip for some players.
30 Jun 08 UTC Spring, 1914: to be honest mate it wasn't so much the rules as the fact I didn't realise there had been a standoff there (even tho I appreciate I had caused the standoff....but that move had been 24 hours before and checking on my phone I didn't really look at the map in too much detail!)

Happy to stand out of Naples this turn if thats 'fair' but saying that its not exactly going to last anyway :)
01 Jul 08 UTC Thank you all for having shared few hour of fun hopefully.
