I think deadlines should be very rigid. debate up front, perhaps, but once set ... that's it.
To me, part of the game is knowing the deadlines. I know we all
get a little behind at times, and I've benefited from leniency as well as anyone, but a missed turn, or the realization that you have to rush to get a turn in is a lot more "realistic" than having the leniency taken advantage of.

Sorry, don't think I was very clear.  Meant my preference would be to use the normal WB deadlines and hold people to them. It has worked fine in every other WB game I have been in.

I'd vote for the normal deadlines enforced as they are.

I'm missing one, or more orders, so the deadline gets pushed back to 8am BST on Friday.
I was thinking about this deadline thing and how deadlines should be deadlines.  As an aside to this game, if you were in a future game with me and the deadline was, instead of 8pm BST on a Monday and Thursday, was 8AM on the Tuesday morning and Friday morning and enforced rigidly then how would you feel?  I'd like to try it for the next Blitz.

Diplomacy games may contain lying, stabbing, or deliberately deceiving communications that may not be suitable for and may pose a hazard to young children, gullible adults, and small farm animals.
