Orders in 146845. Fun times for some! not going through

Same thing as the title states. I even laid out in messages the orders I was putting through, but it seems that even after submitting them, they didn't go through in the game, and I got registered as NMR-ing.

Was the timer showing 0? Was it close to the deadline?

OK, I think I understand. The phase started to process at 13:06 server time, you logged in at 13:07. I suspect you were trying to shoot some orders in quick before the game finished processing, but you were too late I'm afraid...sorry. What a lot of people do is they set up a 'default' set of orders as soon as the phase changes, and then if they are running a bit late they at least have SOMETHING to execute :)

That's not what happened at all. I messaged Italy yesterday what my moves were and then set them, but they didn't go through.

Well, if that is the case, your orders never made it. A good habit to get into which a lot of people do is to always click on Refresh Orders in the orders tab when you have submitted them. This forces the orders as they stand to be reloaded from the database; in other words, it guarantees you will see what will be executed. if for some reason (for example a dodgy connection, or a misclick or something) the orders have never reached the server, you will see that they are not in your refreshed list.

So despite the fact that there is proof of me making my orders, I just miss my orders and get screwed on the game?

There is no proof at all that you made any orders. According to the database, you did not submit ANY orders in that phase. I'm afraid that the only proof you have is your claim that you did submit them. I am not saying I doubt your word, but since there is no evidence then there is nothing we can do.

I can send you a screenshot of my message to Italy? It was from yesterday.

I hate to say this, but I'm afraid that does not prove anything. Messages are no evidence at all I'm afraid. All that really matters is what is in the orders database when the turn processes. I know it sounds unfair, but the fact is it is up to players to make sure that their orders are in properly. I realize this must be very upsetting, but all I can do is repeat that if you can get into the habit of always checking the stored orders using Refresh Orders, this will not happen again.
