Sabbath, there is no reason to come unhinged. This is only 1 week with a short notice cancel, things happen from time to time. Last week's cancelling was due to Duck being out of town which he not only stated in a thread, but heck you even responded to it. I was going to explain, but after reading your previous posts it wont help.

Respond to the other post then.
Being able to make a tiny time commitment once a week is or should be a requirement for eligibility in this game.

Everyone has the unexpected occur in life Sabbath. It happens. No sense getting angry at them for it! That said, we should look into how we could work subs when it does happen so that the game can roll on if possible!

Yes, this exactly. We simply need to have rules and eligibility requirements so that we can actually finish a game.

I am not angry at anyone, more a general frustration with basic commitment levels, in addition to a couple of other factors I outlined in the other thread.
Most importantly holding up games when multiple subs are available.

Trying to say this in the nicest way possible:
If a candidate does not or cannot commit regular time to an endeavor, and/or have life situations and schedules that may cause regular cancellations for anything less than an absolute emergency, then perhaps such a candidate may not have the freedom or leeway to sign up.
I make every effort possible to be here, and while my attendance may be fanatical, many are here very nearly as often.

There are many things and hobbies in life that people would like to be a part of that they simply do not have time for. Everyone makes sacrifices of their personal enjoyment for their family, work and otherwise. I would like to do take up many pursuits that I cannot. If something is important enough people make time.

A few basic rules or eligibility requirements would go a long way in smoothing things out.

I have posted some suggestions in the rules discussion thread.

sorry bro but im not having anyone sub my country...i have things set the way i want and if i have to miss a game that is life...we can either do a makeup or cancel that week...to me those are the only options...subbing is not...this game goes on for far too long to have someone of less skill or vision come in and mess things up in one week...

People have "lives" and still manage to make it in once a week for tennis practice or any other hobby or pursuit that they designate as important.

Would you sign up for a Rec league basketball team then never show up and try to wreck their league when they subbed for your position instead of cancelling the game?
It's just common respect.

Holding up the game at anyone's whim can't be an option forever.

Due to someone's recent behavior/attitude I am really thinking about saying I cannot make it; but I think that would push them over the edge (however, it would make me smile).

But Hugo, I am not going to find your post...but I totally agree with your statement about, how you looked forward to the game and it was fun. Totally in the same boat as you now.

That's fine, just keep not showing up and what would happen then?

Wow Sabbath, just wow. You mean I will get my Tuesday's back and wont have to play an 8 year old broken exploitable game with the "nicest, most interesting" people in the world? Spank my ass, paint it blue, and call me a baboon...what do I have to do and where do I sign-up?

If you like, sure.

Not being malicious, just saying that eventually people would get subbed for if they disappear to keep the game moving. Subs are a necessary part of online AOD.

Uk/France are already on thin ice on WPO, demanding to hold up the game to their whim repeatedly won't be an option forever.
umm oh guru of the game how exactly are we on thin ice?...who died and made u the moderator/God sorry bro u need to check urself before u wreck urself with blanket crap statements like that...and to my recollect duck was the one who had to miss the week before so that makes cougy only once in the last two weeks...i will say it again people have lives...if u cannot get that thru ur head then we have an issue

and i will reiterate...i will not have anyone sub my country even for one week without my prior agreement...period...end of discussion...this game takes entirely too long for someone to come in and darn it up one session...im very pleased rdude was ready and able to sub but it changes nothing...if i have other issues that i have to deal with then i wont be there and i would expect (as would anyone but u apparently) that the group respect that and not play...or better yet schedule a make-up day

if that isnt acceptable to the current players then replace me now...but since every single one has missed one or more weeks and we held the game then i expect u are in a solid minority and we can end this bullshit rant/rage now and move to more constructive posts

My mistake I should not have brought it up, everyone is already aware of any past situations, not the time or place to discuss that.
I have removed the offending portion.

Should take this to the rules post for post game discussion as well, this is off topic.
Perhaps you were not clear on how it works but people have always taken subs here as pedal says although it was not written down. The only minority is the two who have not.
If that doesn't work for you and/or it gets codified to the rules NEXT game then I am sure you are free not to play if it does not suit you.
