Forum rules
In addition to the general Forum Guidelines (see here: viewtopic.php?f=130&t=15441), there are additional rules for posting in this forum.
1. Members should not refer directly to a specific situation in an active game. It is usually possible to provide an example of a similar situation elsewhere on the board.
2. It follows that links, images, game name and/or number should not be added to a post if the game is active.
3. Questions should only request rules be clarified and not request advice about how to resolve a situation.
4. When answering a question, members should restrict themselves to answering the question and not give advice on how to get around the situation.
Posts which break these rules will be subject to editing or removal; see here: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=42845

Can you message other countries in all phases? Is there a certain phase when it is appropriate to ask other countries for alliances?
Thanks!

To clarify this is true here and in many on-line games. Standard game rules stipulate that there is no discussion during retreat or build phases. On-line being a bit of a different animal changes that rule. I have played other places on-line where communication can be disabled during retreat and build phases.
