    So ... if I am reading this right ... we have the following players ...

    The turn order that I know about is ...

    Michkov > Ruff > Tigr

    From that, I will assume that the turn order is ...

    I believe that I have all of these player's email address and I will set up a game forwarding email and tracker system. Sometime this weekend.

    Arabia is long dead. Long before I took over America from whoever I took over Arabia from Eclipse, and led it into a glorious cataclysm with no survivors remaining.

    Tracker is only partially working. Please continue to send game on as normal ... can send copy to tracking email address. I will let you know when it is up and running.

    Tracker is even closer to working. I just need to get a few more in-game names.

    Magic tracker address is ... https://www.ruffhi.com/php/tracker_v6.php?game=pbemdominearth

    Sample below ... you can see the in-game names that I am missing. Can you post the name of your in-game player that first gets the save.

    Code:
    This is a tracker for DominEarthion
    
    It's year AD-2023-August
    Who has the save?
    In-Game Name: Vladimir Putin
    Forum Name: psza
    0 hours, 38 minutes passed since the save has been handed on.
    For Info: Last Save ... [DominEarthion_AD-2023-August_to_Vladimir_Putin.CivBeyondSwordSave]
    
    List of Upcoming Players
    ... Hercules / ingame name
    ... Imp. Knoedel / ingame name
    ... MichKov / ingame name
    ... Ruff / Felipe_de_Ruff1
    ... Tigranes / Manmohan_Singh

    The way the tracker works is that I have created a pbem specific gmail account for this game (please accept the forward request).

    The trick is that everyone has to swap where they are sending this game and email it to the pbem.dominearth email address. I have added rules to this gmail account to forward the game to the next player based on who emails it. So, if I email it, the rule catches it and flips it to Tigr.

    Let me know if you want the password to this email account ... it isn't a secret.

    Meanwhile, some PHP code that I am hosting can interrogate that email address, pull the last valid email from a valid player and display who has it and how long they have had it. No more "where is the game" posts.

    I got the save for Hu Jintao, iirc the Chinese player, via the tracker. Something wrong with the order in the tracker.

    yep - my mistake. I manually forwarded the game to Herc.

    Gaa - that is wrong too. Should go to psza?

    Ok - I am confused. Who is Hu Jintao
    Ah .. chinese
    And that is Herc ... so I think I was right

    Except about the forward rule :(

    Herc has played his turn. He emailed the tracker to say that ... but he forwarded the game the old way. So ... the tracker is pointing to Herc because it doesn't know any better :(

    GPS to Michkov, as nobody told me what this new fancy tracker address is supposed to be.

    Tracker is up and running - but I have guessed at a couple of people's in-game name (the first civ they play). Everyone except Imp has accepted that this email account can forward emails to them.

    Please send the next turn to this account ...

    pbem dot dominearth at gmail dot com

    Tracker ...

    Sent the save on the old-fashioned way.

    Please use my gmail account instead of the ymail one, thanks.
