Yes, but he has received very few order sets.

Partly my fault, let me send some orders.

Ways to Prevent Troops From Getting Lost

1. Put troop locations on your country page. If I forget where your troops are, I can look.
2. Send troop locations in your orders every month. Copy-paste if they don't move.

3. Clearly label messages. "HOTW - May 1874 - Bolivian Troop Movements" will get found a lot faster than one of a dozen messages titled "HOTW - Turn Counter in Order Deadline". You go through the message and see an intact conversation. I see something about Austrian troop movements, questions about Muslim unity, Scandinavian industry, all mixed together. If you send one message with a poorly labeled title and then don't send in orders for a few months, I won't have the slightest idea where your troops are. At the very least, create a message thread with your country's orders in it, separate from the turn counter chain. At least then I stand a chance of finding it.

Ye but I don't exactly want everyone to see where my units are. Also, surely we can look at our sent messages and we can find them easier. We'll have less messages.
And sorry for doing that as well, I understand this was aimed at me :D

It was prompted by you, but I've lost armies before, as most people do what you do.

My GMing HOTW folder has nearly a thousand PMs. It's hard to find stuff.

I'll process when I can, but I really have to start my homework. And finish it, for that matter.

why not have a sub folder for each country...(could even have a rule so it sifts everything from each person)

That might be worth trying, although I don't know if the system will allow me to have a dozen.

No post in over a week? Are we still doing this?

Or is everybody waiting for me, in which case the question is withdrawn.
