Your keyboard should? have s Pause key. Mine is Fn+End. While not required, it's a good habit to pause the save before uploading. I uploaded probably 50 times before I could remember to pause . You can open the saves even if not your turn. That's why we like it paused (It's mostly so LC doesn't give away a city) You don't have to pause/upload to discuss. only if the the team wants to see it.
