    Hello everyone - It seems this game is stuck and at least one player has silently dropped off. Additionally, PBEM Tracker appears to be completely down. I see a message about the hosting provider suspending the account, so my guess is that it is down for good.

    If you are still interested in continuing this game, please post a reply here or send me a PM. I'll attempt to contact whoever I don't hear from, and get an idea of who is still in and who is still out. And then hopefully recruit a substitute or two and get this game rolling again.

    Greetings ... Do you have a list of possible replacements? I'm available if required.

    This game should begin moving again soon. For now, I don't believe we need a replacement player (but I'll add ruff_hi to the list of possible recruits if we ever do need one).

    PBEM Tracker appears to be back online, but it still doesn't actually send out files. It's still worth uploading each turn just so everyone can see who has the ball, but you'll also have to manually email your file to the next player. So if you don't have the email address of the player immediately after you, send them a PM to request it (or work out some other file-sharing method).

    I can't remember whether I replaced someone in this game or not. I know I was eliminated from my original slot.

    The OP hasn't been updated for a while...

    Thanks for pointing that out. I just updated the OP with the current player list/turn order. You're not currently in this game, but at the top of my potential sub list if another one is needed.

    If you want to take over Khmer, feel free.

    ricketyclik - If you want to take over the Khmer from sinimusta, just let me know and I'll send you the turn instead. Funny thing is, that would work perfectly from a PBEM Tracker perspective. I haven't been able to get ahold of any admins to update it, but if you just rename the Khmer leader to ricketyclik the notifies should work (since Khmer directly followed Persia).

    Sure, I'll take it over, but ruff_hi volunteered before me, so I'll defer to him. If he doesn't want it, I'll take it.

    Ricketyclik ... all yours. I'm still available as a sub if required.

    Re the tracker ... how about using the Realms Beyond tracking method ... I am more than happy to help you set it up. Also, it will give me a chance to fully document the 'how to set it up' that I have been meaning to write.

    We might need a sub for REM. He's been absent from another PBEM I'm in for a long time.

    I did manage to get ahold of REM recently, and he indicated that he wanted to continue and expected that he'd be able to play regularly again soon. I just sent ricketyclik REM's email, so we'll see how things go.
