    I just sent him a PM now, and I'll let everyone know what I hear back.

    I went back and loaded up my first turn again, and I was not able to access the game details without providing the admin password. It wouldn't take blank or any of my guesses, so that would seem to confirm that it was already set by that point.

    Quick update - It sounds like AdrienIer did set the admin password and remembers what it is. I've sent him the latest save, so hopefully he'll be able to reset Count1's password and change the admin password so that I can take over that role going forward.

    Slight correction. AdrienIer will remain the admin for this game going forward now that we've gotten everything straightened out.

    I've sent sinimusta a PM with the updated save file and the new password so he can take a look. If he doesn't join this game, I have another potential replacement lined up.

    Cool. Are you also registered over at PBEM Tracker under this same name? If so, I'll email the admin and get you swapped in for Count1 there:

    I know PBEM Tracker hasn't been fully working for awhile. It sends emails but doesn't include files.

    In the other game I'm playing we've been having to email or PM to keep the games moving. Uploading to PBEM Tracker is still a good idea, since it can at least be used by other players to see where the current turn is at.

    ReallyEvilMuffin - is it still your turn or have you passed off the save outside of PBEM Tracker?

    Was there an issue with the save? I sent it on 9th of April. Also resent now, to make it easier to find.

    The one on the tracker was sent after the thing stopped passing on saves correctly. I forgot to mention it then and remembered when armour said. Which reminds me about another game...

    Sent to Alvarez! I think it is better to continue to upload the saves to pbem tracker site. With that, we can check who has the ball, the time since last upload, and receive the email notifications.

    I played my turn and sent via PM to Sinimusta on May 16. Didn't upload to Tracker since it would still email Count1 (haven't had any luck getting ahold of the Tracker admin to update it).

    It would seem to be stuck. ReallyEvilMuffin - Were you able to get Academia's email and send him the turn? Just wanting to confirm where things are stopped at, so we can send a PM or email, or even recruit another replacement if need be.

    Even though we have to email the turns manually, we probably should also keep using the Tracker so we can tell who has the ball. The only reason I didn't after playing my turn was because the player immediately after me was a replacement, and the Tracker would still email the old player (Count1 instead of Sinimusta).
