    This is probably a silly question but this stopped me before I even got started. When you create a new email account for a game, pbem.planetfall@gmail.com what do you put in the "name" fields?

    My name as creator or pbem planetfall?

    I put Crowd as the first name and PBEM as the last name with the email address pbem.crowd.

    Totally not consistent ... bahh!

    FYI I never got an email for this game, and the RB link Ruff posted is broken.

    Hmm ... I sent it to Luthor. Not you. Is Luthor playing in this game? Which email address are you using?

    Edit: Found your email ... sent you a 'forward' request and also forwarded the game. No idea why page isn't showing ... will inquire at Realms Beyond about that.

    :crazyeye: Again!? I told you that the player order is in post #1... and my name does not appear on it, so... no, I am not playing it...

    I would like to get a file once in a while to check on the evolution of the game, though! I think that one player might get a slight disadvantage due to his unique location but maybe it's not too relevant. But the game it's still at a very early stage.

    Yeah ... but you are assuming that I can read. I skim quickly ... and make mistakes. Fixed now.

    I can set up the gmail account to forward you the turn at the end of each rotation. Is that too much?

    Yes, I am assuming that! :lol:
    (funny how the sentence came out)


    It's ok like that. I can always delete the email. Or came back to you (at a later stage) and ask to change it.

    gmail turn forwarding appears to be working. Tracker web site ... not so much. I'll be playing my turn in about 3 hrs from now.

    Wait a minute... No, nobody bulbed Philosophy, I just picked Taoism upon discovering Monotheism.

    When was the last time you Oracled 'Civil Service'? This seemed like an ideal game to pull that gambit. Popping Mathematics from a hut helped. Now I need to grow my size 3 capital so that it can compete with some of the other capitals (someone has a size 10! capital).
