If no one posts in my game to help what should I do?

Find the answer in FAQ posted by Macbone :

NEVER MISS YOUR TURN! Best thing you can do is be sure to post your games with as much time for us to get to them as you can. If time is running out for you or your game look on line fore a teacher or two and pm them. We will help you. Try to pick ones not in the game. Also by adding all the teachers to your friends list you can see us easier. If you have no one to help play the turn as best you can, follow the first four rules and the base strategy contained in them.


So can I ask the utility for most of the teachers academy to hide their status. Would not it be more useful to remove your name from the list of active teachers. Then I'll not ask you for help again if going to run out of time again.

Really sorry, i'm just in the academy to learn and do not want to disturb again

When I was going through SoC basic training, I kept a list of the three or four teachers that posted in to my game threads most often. I know it says to add "all" the teachers to your friends list, but that's a bit excessive. After a while you get to know which ones patrol your classroom most often, and more importantly, which ones live in your time zone and/or live on the same sleep schedule as you.

Abe- the teachers you will be working most with are here:

ElricTheGreat
Count Belisle
Industrial Helix
lt.Futt
JJ41375

Add them to your friend list, as well as myself, macbone, and Iron Butterfly. Shoot us a pm if you only have a few hours left and we'll try to get in there. Another way to do it is to pm us when you post a new thread, as those are the hardest for us to catch.

Great question.

If all else fails, recognise that the teachers are accepting that your plans are awesome and you dont need much help :mrgreen:

Abe, I don't think most of us hide our status. Some of us do, yeah, but most of us are available. Feel free to PM me if you see me on, but I'm in Hong Kong, so my schedule might not be the same as yours.
