- Being on another player's account for ANY reasons other than taking turns when they are in danger of missing a turn, or posting to necessary Tournament or Clan related public forum topics, is not allowed. Abuse of this privilege can be considered account sharing and could result in a Bust for both accounts.
Ah, but that's not quite the same as what you originally said: "updating clan war or tournament OP's that are in the community interest and delayed".
You're talking about editing a post of another person. This quote says "posting" in topic".
And how would you read this statement from the Head Tournament Director?:

That would even exclude "posting".
i would think if you are sitting for someone it might be reasonable to post in a tournament thread that a game has finished or to post another's name for those challenger types of tournaments.
Yes. I've always assumed it referred to tournaments that require players to take actions between games, such as announce what map they want to play in the next round or who they will be challenging.
I think it's also reasonable to post what a sitter knows about the sitter's expected date of return, so that the TO can make a decision whether to replace him or not.
Now you're talking about normal posting in threads. None of that needs to be posted by the sitter through the account of the one he/she is sitting for. Anybody can simply post any of this under their own account, not the sitter's:
Hello, I'm account sitting for chapcrap, his game 1234567 is finished.
Hello, I'm sitting for Dukasaur, he wants to play Classic for the next round and challenge owenshooter.
Hello, I'm sitting for HerrZ, he'll be back in 10 days. If that doesn't work for you, go ahead and replace him.
All of that kind of stuff you can post using your own account, not that account you're sitting for.
Maybe I'm missing something, but there is no reason to post anything in the forums while account sitting. Post it under your own account.
