Still waiting on Yelnoc, Belgiansocialist, and Barnes.  Once they're in, the next phase will immediately follow.

This long delay for players to submit orders does not bode well for the survival of the game.

I've been prepping for the SAT, so I forgot about this.  And I've got two major projects due this week.  I'm going to have to bow out.  Sorry guys.

I wanna see Muon play Diplomacy. Now. Maybe saying "please" will work. Please?

I may conceivably reconsider.

I am not running a Diplomacy game where I'd let two countries NMR, sorry.  Especially not Turkey and Russia.

I recognize my other time commitments would not allow me to participate consistently. Perhaps my time will permit it at a later juncture. Smiley

Guys, I'm not running a Diplomacy game where two countries NMR in 1901.  Unless people volunteer to replace Yelnoc and Barnes shows up, I don't see what options I have.

Turkey wouldn't actually be all that f**ked from NMRing this turn.  Russia, on the other hand...

If you want me to, I could just assemble all of Russia's possible options and run them through a random number generator and get orders that way.  The problem is that it could result in absurdities like A WAR-LIV.

Alright, alright. If you find one other volunteer count me in.

I just noticed these are the two countries I've never played before even in a quickly abandoned round.

I'll help out, too, if you can't find anyone else within a timeframe that will keep the game moving.

If Lewis and Smid are indeed in, I'll give them until (sigh) Friday to get orders in so they can get their feelers in.  Random.org says that Lewis gets Turkey and Smid Russia.  Welcome aboard to our sinking ship, gentlemen, let's see if we can get this patched.

EDIT:  Barnes, if you want to reclaim Turkey, take it up with Lewis.

Will get the map up tomorrow, have been struggling with Jdip which doesn't want to update the map.  Here's the orders and results.

Britain and France each get 2 builds, Austria, Russia, and Turkey 1 build, and Germany and Italy no builds.  No retreats are necessary.  Please send me builds when you can (because this is the easy phase, I want to make this quick to make up for lost time) and we will go to 1902.

What symptoms or messages did you get with the map? I tried entering your orders on my JDip and the new map came up fine.

No Symptoms, no messages.  It just moved from "Fall 1901" to "Fall 1901 (Adjustments)" without altering the map.  The units are all in their new position in the program, but the map didn't change.

I don't understand the map situation and I sort of have to in order to make my orders (and I hardly remember the orders I sent in anymore either, so...)

In short, it'd be great with a map. Smiley

Italy attempted to convoy Naples to Greece, so your fleet is still in Albania. Your army in Rumania is still there and your move to Tyrolia was successful. You have a build. To your North, I took Munich, denying Germany a build. Turkey moved its fleet from Ankara to Constantinople and attempted to take Sevastopol but bounced. The Turkish army in Bulgaria held and is still South of your army in Rumania. Turkey gets a build. None of Italy's units moved, so no builds and that part of the map is unchanged (Fleet in Ionian Sea attempted to convoy, so stationary, Naples to Greece bounced with your fleet, so no movement, Apulia to Naples failed because Naples didn't move).

I've seen that happen once before. I had to undo the previous move, exit, then reenter the move. If it helps, here's the map JDip gives me.

     Germany has always done rather poorly in Atlas Forum Diplomacy, the second Smid game aside.
