    Hmm...so something isn't working right. You say you flipped the turn to me, yet I have no email with a turn. Does it come from pbem.nipty email addy? I checked spam folder and don't see anything either.

    I sent it to visotchy at the g. It would have come from pbem.nipty email address at 3:41 (GMT-5).

    Got it! Oh wow, I do not even begin to understand the units at the start here. Crazy!

    Hey, curious if I'm set up appropriately in the Earth 1000AD tracker as well. Could you check please, ruff_hi?

    Took the turn, hopefully the tracker picks it up nicely. I changed my civ name. Does that matter?

    Tracker was looking for your 'h' variant email address. I fixed that and manually forwarded the turn to me.

    BUT ... the game is looking for a password ... what is it?

    In-game name is important (but only for the tracker, not the forwarding) but I will monitor those changes each time I see the game.

    OK, great to know. Sorry for the complications. The more I know, the less I'll accidentally break. =)

    Changed in-game name to "omeganot" to match me. PW updated to "bvb". Does the tracker actually open the file?

    I have my turn's password (thx Luthor) - so will play it tonight.

    Gmail forwarding only cares about who emailed the turn (ie the 'from' email address) and uses that info to forward to the next player.

    The tracker reads the gmail account, find the last valid email (with attachment and from one of the players) and grabs the attachment name. Using the attachment name, it works out who the turn should go to ... and posts that info (hence why the in-game name is important).

    Nope. I do not have yet a clearance to finalize it...

    I have made a special requisition in order to be able to do so, but it has not been authorized yet.... hopefully it will be within a week...

    Work Boats are very popular these days as 4 human cities are now building them!
