Is it possible to postpone hosting (turn60)?
I need 10h to get to the dom3.

In the context of Christmas vacations, I would appreciate a long hosting delay between 25/12 and 31/12. I will be on the road in the Iranian desert with no predictable access to the Internet.

I'm sorry don_Pablo, I was in bed when you posted this message (and PM'd me.) I had in fact extended the turn timer with 3 hours so it would only host after I got up, because I had promised Helheim to keep en eye on thinks so he didn't stale during his trip, but somehow the turn hosted at the same hour as last time anyway. No idea what happened there, the extension is visisble in the admin log, so it's not like I forgot to press the confirm button or anything.

Splat!

Thanks for subbing in Executor, that really helped me/us out. (And no thanks at all for casting BoT, that did NOT help me. )

There are some llamaserver glitches recently - turns take way too long to host, so server gets stuck and it may not accept anything.

It looks like, despite knowing hosting time for 12 days now, 4 players are still to submit their turn, one of which asked for an extension on the last night before hosting. I'm slightly pissed off about it, since they could comfortably have played their turn before christmas, or between christmas and the new year if now for some reason was not a good time for them. Or, worst case scenario, if they had planned a longer holliday or something, asked for an extension way sooner than now so we all knew where we stood.

They're also collectively screwing over Numahr, who's leaving for a couple of days on the third, and could just have played his next turn before leaving, and the next one after returning, perhaps with a short 12 or 24h extension, and who will now somehow need to come up with a sub for one or two turns with almost no notice.

I've added 12 hours, I would suggest you get your turn done.

With my apologies to those amongst the four who have a fine sense of timing and were going to submit their turn at the last minute without issues.

My turn was on time :P Sorry about all that. You are right to write all that - people [myself included] get too lazy when host grants too many extensions.

Sorry, I thought I had submitted my turn before vacation...

Thanks to the players involved for submitting their turns relatively shortly after the severe scolding I gave them.

Now if only the game would actually host too...

Edit: Hurray! after sitting and watching it not hosting for 40 minutes, (and god knows how long before I noticed al turns were in.) forcehosting produced immediat results. I is the most awosme leetness personified.

Why in the hell do you sign up for games if taking your turns is such a chore? You do know that regardless of the absolute time limit that is enforced, all the players who joined the game because they enjoy playing dominions are waiting on you, right?

I've added another 12h at the request of Zeldor, who apparently is struggling with exams this week. He has assured me though that after the next weekend he won't be needing any more extensions for a long, long time...
