06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Hey everyone! I look forward to a great game!
06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Dateline Paris. Officials at the Sorbonne are reporting that representatives of the Turkish Sultanate have all enrolled in classes to learn Russian. This is a strange phenomenon never before seen. Foreign ministry officials had no comment, though they seemed to pass knowing glances among themselves at the questioning.
06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: ^ I resent this.
06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Unless you're implying a juggernaut. In which case I still resent it.
06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: Dateline Syria: Does anyone except for Italy actually care about us? More at 11.
06 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1901: England cares.
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Dateline Paris. Unnamed sources at the Sorbonne indicate that Turkish diplomats are making progress in their newfound zeal to learn Russian. They seem to be especially good at "Yes Sir" and "Whatrever you say". All concerned are very heartened at the disappearance of old rivalries.
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Okay, this is not even funny. What is going on here?
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: There seems to be a command and control issue in various places.
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: What is really odd is, apparently, the Russian orders _were_ these, maybe they unconditionally put down all arms.
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I missed that. The "safety play" of saving "hold" orders while thinking about options?
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: How is that safer than not saving? I safe-save orders that make sense at least...

Anyway, if this goes on, how about a cancel? I meant: not even funny. We could continue though, I/G/T/R NMR is the best thing that could happen to Austria. :)
07 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Let's see if anyone wakes up. Not much of a challenge to win against NMR.
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: If we have three NMRs, we should draw or cancel for sure. Russia for whatever reason hadn't submitted orders I guess.
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: How do the rules work on draw vs cancel in terms of penalizing the deadbeats? A draw would award them points, yes? But if they NMR again and are placed into CD, they would not get points in a draw. Is that right?
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: I don't know. Should ask on the forum.
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Okay, one of us did ask on the forum. Apparently, if the game is cancelled before '03, no record is kept and it won't affect our Ghostratings. A cancel gives the points back to the NMRs, a draw shares the points of the seven players among us three. In essence, drawing would also punish the NMRs.

I don't care which one happens, I'm voting for both.
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: Oh, as for drawing now or later, doesn't matter. The game won't end unless everyone draws, so the deadbeats would have to go CD first for it to even happen.
08 Aug 12 UTC Autumn, 1901: If the game is cancelled, nobody ever knows this game happened. If we draw, it goes on our GR and our stat pages but we get a few extra points (which don't matter to me).
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Hello everyoune, this is the new turkey. I took over from the old one, so different person.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Welcome, Turkey. I'm sure Austria will enjoy your visit.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Welcome. We were about to draw/cancel this, Turkey wasn't the only CD country here. Still, if this happens 3 more times, I am happy.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Two more left.
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: A draw would be fine by me!
09 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 1902: Italy, if you aren't playing, don't open this game anymore.
10 Aug 12 UTC Oh well. I hope my next game won't be CD'd by four(!) players.
10 Aug 12 UTC Gl, hf in the future!
