22 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2000: [China]:hello everybody!
23 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Kenya]:hey hows it goin
24 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2000: [Russia]:do you think we should invite people to play Ghana and South Africa?
Maybe someone wants to
24 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2000: [India]:I don't object to that
24 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2001: [South-Africa]:wow, didn't expect this game to begin so soon. sorry for missing a couple turns. i hate that...
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Ghana]:I'm going to be honest. This is my first time playing this game.
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Quebec]:First time playing a world map or diplomacy at all?
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Ghana]:Diplomacy at all.
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Quebec]:I'd recommend playing the classic map, the world map is much more overwhelming, but you might as well give world a try since you've joined the game
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Ghana]:I don't know where to find the classic map.
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Quebec]:When you go to join a game (games then new) if it doesn't specify world map or ancient med map, it's the classic map (which is what the board game was originally)
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [India]:it should say something about the game beginning in 'spring 1901,' and there should be a total of 7 players when the game begins
27 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2001: [Ghana]:Alright Thanks.
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [South-Africa]:I think we should cancel this game. I'm guilty of missing a couple turns, but, beyond that too many have dropped or are dropping. Regardless, this has been a pretty bad game.
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [Libya]:i vote cancel as well.
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [Quebec]:I just started the game..a friend of mine told me about it
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [Ghana]:I think we should cancel also, I didn't know what I was getting into when I started a WORLD game...
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [Kenya]:poo on a bunch of that
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [Russia]:This is ridiculous. If you get into a game and don't want to play, send your troops on a death march. Post them to the outback. Put them at parade rest during low tide and let them drown. But don't expect others who have invested time to just drop it at your whim...
30 Oct 10 UTC Spring, 2003: [India]:there are 17 countries. that means if 1 or 2 end up dropping, it's not a huge loss. just play the game. if you dont want to, drop and let someone else take your place but dont bitch about it.
31 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Ghana]:Well how do I drop out of the game?
31 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2003: [India]:you dont do anything for two turns.
31 Oct 10 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Ghana]:Ahh ok. Thanks.
01 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Ghana]:Is civic disorder when a country drops out of the game?
01 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2003: [Europe]:yes
04 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2004: [Europe]:dude ... canada is raping. its funny cuz in RL they suck ... lol
19 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [South-Africa]:India, are you quitting?
19 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Russia]:That would be really sad (as in poor play)
19 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [India]:no. it's just hitting that time of the semester when i spend my entire day without access to a computer. (music major).
19 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [South-Africa]:Okay. Good luck on your studies.
20 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [Russia]:ditto. you have your priorities straight (though joining 12 hr move games can be...problematic, eh)
20 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2011: [India]:well, 12 hr games arent normally an issue. it's just the music building is only open so long, so i have to make due with the time i have.
21 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2012: [Kenya]:sorry missed that last turn, total brain fart
30 Nov 10 UTC Autumn, 2016: [Russia]:Kenya, your disbanding of the fleet in Syria is holding up the game. You checked in six hours ago - either play - or leave permanently. Have some consideration.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:Does anyone know if we have to "unpause" to get the game moving again?
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [Western-Canada]:I suspect we'll have to ask the admins.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:I just sent Kestas a message. It might unpause itself in 12 hours. That or we need him to do something. Regardless, we are all ready I think. (With the exception of Kenya who seems to be checking in to just keep his profile from showing he quit a game.)
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [Western-Canada]:While we're talking about Kenya, it would be nice if you took some of his centers to achieve your victory rather than continuing to take from me. Just a thought.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [Near-East]:I'm ready and hit unpause.
The message to Kestas is a good idea.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:From Kestas:

"Hey Justin,

I added slightly over 12 hours to compensate for downtime, and when you add over n hours n-hour games will get paused. Hopefully it won't happen much and the mods will restart processing faster to reduce the need for large extra time extensions.

Regards,
Kestas"
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:I assume it will "unpause" automatically based on what he said, but I don't totally understand what he said either. I followed up with him to more clearly explain that we will need his intervention if it doesn't automatically unpause.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:We might be able to unpause ourselves if everyone votes to do so.
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [Near-East]:the problem is that Kenya won't press unpause...
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [Russia]:thanks for doing all of that.

I'm willing to share Kenya with Canada if you let his fleet through..
02 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2017: [South-Africa]:Update from Kestas:

"I've unpaused the game so it resumes more quickly, thanks for letting me know about that.

Regards,
Kestas"
03 Dec 10 UTC Autumn, 2017: [Near-East]:thanks Kestas.
08 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2019: [Russia]:Well played. My first game of World, and a tad overwhelming. A bit different from Classic :)
08 Dec 10 UTC Spring, 2019: [Russia]:And Principians will be glad to hear he came in second and made up with his ancient enemy, Near East.
