On the subject of inverted time continuum simulation in Diplomacy
That said, the arguments in favour of this idea are the followings;
Predisposition of the game and its written orders to manipulate in-game moves history,
Presence of a game master that can keep orders written for the future secret,
Sheer coolness of doing such a thing

A comment on common courtesy
Stuff happens in life and people occasionally need help from Mods to exit games without destroying the games for other players. Players who need Mods to remove them and delay games should provide a list of all of their games to the Mods. This is common courtesy.

I can access games again. Thanks for working to sort this out.
Thank you tob1!!!
I do have a question: when the games resume processing at 9pm UTC will the games be processing that phase at that point? I remember that when the error occurred the time in the phase continued to count down as if everything was fine and not pausing.
Chuttbugger (2350 D)

It looks like the unprocessed phases will reset to their full duration - my 1 day games say 1 day left on unpause, 2 day games say 2 days left on unpause, etc.

One interesting side effect to consider - will the act of forcing all games to unpause even end pauses that were voted on by the players? Will random abandoned games from 3 years ago finally begin to process again?

Again, can’t thank tobi1 and the rest of the mod team enough for their hard work and dedication volunteering their time to maintain this free site for all of us!

From 9pm it will be possible to progress phases again. But their will be sufficient time afterwards to negotiate and enter orders. The pausing of games was an unintended side effect of the tool used for extending. We are currently discussing internally how to best resume the games.

Game processing has now resumed!

Almost all games got paused during the process of fixing unfortunately. We now rely on your help as there is no record on paused games prior the breaking issues and the moderator team cannot check all games manually.
Please, vote to continue all your games yourself. And please give your game opponents some time to return to the website. If you have problems resuming your games, you can ask in the mod forum for assistance. However, such requests will not be process before Thurday, Dec 2.
tobi1 (1997 D Mod (S))

When voting unpause, public chat notification message will say you voted 'pause' not 'unpause'. Please, ignore that message. If the board below says, that your vote to unpause is in, you have successfully cast your vote.

Thanks so much for getting it fixed!

Since games only unpause if everyone votes to do it, will the mods step in to get larger games running again? On maps with 20+ players I imagine it is unlikely everyone makes it back after the outage unfortunately.
FlaviusAetius (1178 D)

For larger games you will likely have to wait for the day of the official unpausing and then the additional game time normal phase
I think we lost the German player in Sticky Keys...I would like a replacement before we resume so builds aren't missed...Can you make an 'joinable' opening for the game?

Request for a game sitter
I currently have a position in the DSA game (gameID=41200), however, I expect to be out of cell reception from the 18th-27th (possibly ending a little earlier). If anyone is interested in watching the game for me for a while please reply below, and I will DM you. I can't tell you the country before you agree to take it, but I am not doing badly.

Thanks!

Forced extend?
https://www.vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=49570#gamePanel

In this game, the mods forced a 5 day pause because of an issue a player had. I believe the mods overstepped their authority by not letting the players vote themselves on whether to extend/pause the game. Instead of a message unilaterally pausing the game, I would have appreciated a message explaining the situation and giving the option to extend.
