This is a great practice and we would encourage everyone to do this.


Vid_FISO wrote: These rules are for clan sitting but do they encompass an absent player's other games? Are there going to be separate rules for tourney play and other games? Obviously when a player is known to be away for a period then sitters will cover all games, not just clan games. Those that play a lot of varied tourneys can often be playing both with and against a number of clan mates making it impossible for one sitter to cover all games.



These rules are for the clan arena only. Other games that aren't clan related you must adhere to general site rules. So you're right, you must not cover a turn in a game you are an opponent in, so you have no choice but to get another sitter to do so.

if he is on vacation you can take his turns whenever is convenient for you as he will NOT be taking any turns himself for the duration of the vacation

This is correct

3, Sitting for the purpose of covering an extended break from the site can carry on as normal, turns can be taken whenever it is convenient, the sitter can add to chat, but the player on vacation must not take turns themselves during this time or add to game chat. Account sitting is for holidays, vacations and emergencies only.


Perhaps I should put in a definition of vacation. The term "vacation" is being used to cover any extended absence from the site where you would require a sitter. Edit I have added a definition to the rules on the 1st page.

what needs to be clarified is a Vacation is not you going on holidays (although it may be). A Vacation is an extended absence from CC.

That is correct, we don't care if you are in the Bahamas, moving house or stuck in a tree. Any extended period of time during which you can not play the game is a site vacation as it were.

I feel like you are overcomplicating this, anybody on your team should be able to fill in for you as needed for work, sickness etc. They should post their name in the chat. The clan leader also should have the option, because we don't have access to everyone's pw. .If people in your clan are taking your turns without permission, leave the clan. Who cares if the imaginery player on the opposing team is the real imaginery player or a substitute player ?...Don't be so serious about something that's supposed to be a casual distraction from the real world.

I understand why a time limit of one hour for emergency sitting has been proposed, but it also potentially excessively burdens a sitter. The 3 am example has been mentioned before; that is a very valid concern. Waking up in the middle of the night to take a friend's turn when there is a reasonable expectation that it would be missed, and could have been sat earlier at a more convenient time, is not fun.


This seems to be a recurring comment in this thread. Nobody is telling you to get up at A.M. to take turns for a team mate. You make that choice. If YOU HAVE NOT BEEN contacted by the account holder to take their turn then you don't know that they won't be taking their own turn. Give the account holder the right to take their turn with just over an hour of time left. Remember this is stated to be emergency coverage. If your clan mates turn expires at 4 A.M. but you go to bed at 10 P.M. would you be taking his/her turn? Give the player the allotted amount of time to take their own turn.

Regular account sitting can CONTINUE AS NORMAL.


May I suggest to all posters to read or reread the original post before posting. This thread would be 4 pages long if there weren't any tldnr, sorry if this has been said before. No wonder it is tldnr.

I have read every word that has been posted in this thread.

Perhaps I did not make the context clear about the 3 a.m. comment. I understand that it is not an issue for normal account sitting. However, what about the case where a totally reliable teammate is about to miss a turn at, say, 8 pm their time. It's under an hour, emergency sitting is fine, and so on. While the emergency sitter is taking that turn, s/he notices that several other games have low clocks, expiring in the middle of the night. It is also well known that this particular teammate goes to bed at 10 pm, and would normally play these games with low clocks before going to bed. At 11 pm, the emergency sitter checks on those low games, and finds that they still have not been played, and the AWOL player has not responded to communication attempts. A reasonable person would (a) be concerned for the welfare of their friend, and (b) want to take those turns for their friend, as there is a reasonable expectation that they will be missed. I think we could call this the AWOL situation. Again, if sitting is transparent, I don't see a problem with allowing this. It's rare that this would happen; I'm thinking perhaps once or twice a year? If it is discovered that this is happening several times a week/month, then appropriate action can be taken.

A clean slate for breaking previous rules?

Really?

I'm ok with the rules and whatever we need to do, but giving out some kind of blanket immunity for people who have been breaking site rules is absurd.
