08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I said all along I think a draw was the way to go - we should have done that before France left. There's no cute way to do it. No there's no fair way to proceed.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: well turkey... go greece... or not...
18 more hours to think about it... :(
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: So we got 18 hours to figure out if France will show up and disband or retreat?
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: yes...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: actually 36... 18 for him to retreat, 18 for him to disband.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: but the latter disband does not involve any figuring out... with no SCs we know what he's going to do...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: but it's still 36 hours of zippo...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I'm a little surprised he hasn't checked it. I'd say once again, I think we should vote to draw and ask him to do the same when he comes on. I'm still not on board with how he decided to leave the game and I'm not realy excited to now be stuck in an 18-hour game.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: let me check who still has to vote besides him

08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: austria, turkey, russia
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: of whom austria is keeping awfully silent in this discussion...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I don't really care either way. I'll go with the consensus.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: /draw
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: GameMaster: DipperDon has voted for a draw.
Voted: General Greivous,Matematico,Giwald,DipperDon Remaining: cdublu,nshadle19,TheWizard.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I believe Russia agreed that playing on with 18-hour turns would not be fair... so I expect him to draw as well. After we waited 36 hours, Austria will be the only one left to vote, and we will have a draw.

Thanks all. I'm glad we got ourselves a solution. I would be up for doing this again. Maybe with some clearer agreements made beforehand about what to do when someone has to leave.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: So Austria's going to vote draw right?
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: he said he'll go with the consensus... If everyone but him votes for a draw, that can only mean he'll vote for a draw as well.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Oiii...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: well... if we're voting, I believe only E,I,A and R should vote...
E is for drawing, I (me, not Italy) am for playing on, so I'd say if I(taly) and A decide so that we have a 3:1 situation, let's do that. If it's 2:2, I'm willing to draw...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Italy has already voted for a draw
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I mean voting whether to play on or draw. AS far as I remember Italy voted for a draw yesterday, when everything was still unclear... just have him restate his decision.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: this game is still going on? make it a draw if is anyone not wanting to play, we joined to play 15min. I voted already.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: ok
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: let's draw in 30 h...
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: thanks for clearing that up.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: you don't have to wait 30h to cast your vote
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: no, but it doesn't change anything if I do...

08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: it has to be by itself... not as part of a longer message

08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: this is going to be a funny bug test of the draw system... if the only person who hasn't voted /draw yet is eliminated, does the engine realize the game is drawn? or will one of us have to vote /undraw and /draw for the engine to realize that? I wouldn't be surprised if we do.
08 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: I guess GameMaster is the proper word, where I said engine.
09 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Good question and interesting test!

09 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: Amazing, we had a lively fun game in 5 or 6 hours and it's now take 3 days to get a draw.... Oi....
09 Feb 09 UTC Autumn, 1905: we surely have to wait until after the unit-placing phase... but then it'll be over...
10 Feb 09 UTC bug test passed :-)
