    To be fair it's not exactly intuitive. It shouldn't have that finish button up there when it's not your turn. Even when it is you click it and then it says it's not your turn. Anyone else find that?

    Anyway, hopefully this week we'll pick up the pace.

    Your go, Cubby. Looking forward to the first election, I expect it will pick up after that...

    Yeah, when you press finish, it does say "You must be current player to play." which is confusing.

    My main issue is not being able to remember where I've placed things. I'm being dense and barely understand what I am doing, of course...

    There's a marker of your colour on the map for each boss you place.

    Andy is up. Do these notifications work? I hadn't thought to look for them.

    What is it meant to IM me in? Via email, in game, G+ (the whole site is all googled up)?

    To answer my own question:
    In the interest of keeping costs down and the site free, I've decided to disable email turn notifications. Basically, the email quotas provided by my host are too low to make this a cost effective feature of the site.

    With that said, I've implemented XMPP turn notifications (i.e. turn notifications sent as instant messages). This is an opt-in feature. If you want to receive turn notifications via instant messages you will need to do a few minor things.

    1) Go to your account page (e.g. click on Your Account link toward the top of the page).
    2) Select Edit
    3) For IM Notifications select "Yes".
    4) Select Update to save changes to your account preferences.

    The above will cause the server to start sending IM's when it's your turn.

    However, your IM client is likely to disregard such IM's unless you add the server to your buddy list. The JID (like an email address for IM) is:

    go-slothn...@appspot.com

    After you add the above JID to your buddy list, you may want to send a Test IM to see if you have things setup properly. There is a send Test IM button on your account page. Click it and the server will send an IM to the address associated with your Google Account.

    Unfortunately, the IM Notifications do not work with Google Hangouts. Google dropped IM support from Hangouts. Google Talk however does support IM notifications. Some users have had success "downgrading" to Google Talk. Besides Google Talk, most (all that I'm aware of) IM clients support the Jabber IM protocol which the site uses. So, you should have a large selection of IM clients from which to choose.

    Edit: I can confirm that it all works out. I've installed IM+ on my phone and the alerts now come through. There are loads of free to download IM clients and it took about a minute to set up.

    Yaaay. Worked for me too.
    Changed the IM setting to YES in my profile.
    Sent IM invite and in gmail, a "xyz wants to be able to chat with you" appeared.
    I sent a test IM and it pops up.
    So next turn I should be notified.

    Go Sparrows and Andy! I'm curious about this election phase!

    I really have no idea what I am doing. MOAR BOSSES sounds like a good idea.

    I figure the more bosses I have the more sway I have with all dem pesky forrins.

    And I'm going to slander Tsar Salaman, because he was an enemy in galaxy far away, but... technically in the future.

    Heh. I was trying to remember who was France in that 2nd EG diplomacy game I played. I thought it was Fillip. Were you Turkey in that first diplomacy game I played where I went to attack Turkey in the first round?

    I seem to make enemies fairly early on inmost games. :-)

    And, yes, I was France.

    I was Turkey, yes. And I inveigled myself into the Crimea very nicely. I think overall I actually betrayed you ^^

    Yeah you did you bastard. Both fillip and yourself totally overreacted to a small first turn infringement onto your territories. :-P

    Much as cubby will probably go after me for moving into ward 4 whilst there were still a few empty wards around.

    There's a real plus to being last isn't there. Andy can sweep up the English vote with the empty wards that are left. I still don't think that he will pip Sal for the first elected Mayor though.

    Let's forget that diplomacy game...

    ...especially as I backstabbed everyone except Germany at some point :)

    I'll make my turn as soon as I get chance to go on the computer.

    And the first election is off. Ward 4 looks fun and will actually decide the Irish vote.

    Ward 4 is done. We're on 7 now, with fillip the uncontested victor.

    Done. I think we're onto 15 now as its the next contested.

    Damn. Sal gets the Irish and it looks like the mayoral role. Give me a good office job Sal and I'll promise to be nice.
