Estimation is the most difficult part of developers job and it is almost never accurate. You can only predict order of magnitude, not an actual time. It is difficult enough when you are working on the site, without looking at the code it is impossible to say anything.I see a limited number of users actually using this
However, there are more users that use an unofficial version of this than there are that used an unofficial version of Trench, and that got implemented. However, that was a radical change in gameplay, whereas this is more of a tune-up.
I don`t see it that way. 12h fog rule is now almost a regular rule in tournament and clan games, whether in casual or strict ways. And it is usually casual for two reasons: because people forget (like I do) and because people don't have time to wait (like Gillian and jghost7 pointed out).
I would never join a tournament with 12h fog rule on principle and my clan does 3/4 of wars without the rule, so I guess it depends on perspective.
I like greenoaks idea much better actually.
I like it better as well, like I said, but I don't think it will ever happen. This might.
Why don't you like the rule, by the way? Just curious.

Yes. But I don't see a way to implement it, other than having Bob as a part of CC, not a plugin, and I don't see it happening. And developing snapshot functionality from the beginning would be pointless.
both would require development but yours is for a very limited group so not going to happen
Like I said and explained before, I don't think it's here for a limited group.
I`m all for incorporating Bob into CC, this is a great tool. However, why wasn't this done before? I think that 90%+ users of CC that are on the site for more than 6 months (I don't have the stats, just guessing) use it. So if there is a chance of having it as a part of CC, why wasn't this done before?

your suggestion only relates to Fog games which have a 12 rule agreed to. so almost none.
also your guess on the number of Bob users is way off. hardly anyone uses it. those that do are far more likely to be found in the forums so it seems like a greater percentage
Added to this Suggestion
it will need exceptions for maps that already have 12 hr fog rule exceptions (city mogul, Age of Realms etc.)

i think the only ones that would really care to have this is the super serious top level clan players that masturbate while playing the game. i for one don't really care about fog rules. most players with decency will post their move if they forget, or just don't forget. if they do forget it's not a problem for me. i just play the turn like a man.
but really i have no loss/gain for having this implemented or not. so maybe i shouldn't even post my opinion? but i guess that's what the suggestion box is for. opinions?
i can think of a few better suggestions to work on than this.
