Orders finalized, deadline not processing (no bug)

It's a Friend game, #171819. We've all finalized orders but the deadline hasn't been processed yet. It's still Spring 1901.

Simple answer is either:
(a) everyone hasn't finalised (even if everyone thinks they have), or
(b) the game hasn't had chance to move on yet... it can sometimes take some time for a game to progress.

The chances of this being a bug are small but it could be of course. However if these players are new to the site then they may not have finalised... and potentially someone thinks finalising is entering all their orders rather than also finalising those orders.

I'm now going to have NoPun tell us it's a genuine bug, of course... :)

I just had all my players, who are admittedly new, send pictures of their screens, and all of their orders are finalized. If it matters, it's a five player game, so maybe that affected something? Anywho, the deadline still hasn't processed.

Hmm. One possibility I didn't suggest is that you may have selected fixed deadlines..? If this was selected when you created the game then it wouldn't make any difference if players finalised or not. Finalising is the default (I believe) so this is the only possibility other than a bug, I guess.

Is it possible to check what settings your game is currently using, so I can check if for some reason I clicked on that box?

Apart from a Mod looking at it, I don't think so. I looked at your game to see if I could see that but couldn't.

However, there is also another Friends game that is having the same issue, which is a 7-player game. So I'm wondering if this is an issue with Friends games...
