lol don't worry they are writting down all names! I was on holiday for10 days about a month ago. I didn't get signed up for 2 batches of our clan war because I knew I wouldn't be there, nevertheless I still had a few games going on and asked for a clanmate to sit my account (tried to lower the game count as much as possible for my sitter) but occasionally I had wifi in some hotels so I did log in on cc from my phone because I was involved in mafia games in the forum and needed to post (obviously this couldn't be done by my sitter), also because I wanted to check how my cc games were doing. I guess that for mister greenoaks that is a severe abuse to dare log onto my own account while I had an official sitter.
I've done this too with my moderator stuff. Obviously my sitter can't do that for me and I don't want my team to be waiting on me just because I've been banished from logging on to CC by the sitter rules (because I currently have a sitter). I am glad to hear that there is a common sense rule here because I may end up having to defend myself with it someday.
[b]Now I will say this again. People are taking this far too seriously, picking holes where there are not any. We simply can't legislate for every eventuality. That is why the common sense rule is here. Life happens and throws curve balls all the time. We are not trying to make things difficult.
Glad to hear it.
All of these rules really just bring us all back into line with site rules.
But they go above and beyond site rules, no?
The Cd Team would check the other players account and determine if what you said was factual. If it was, bearing in mind you have tried to contact him, and got no response then we would except this and you would not be punished. We would record it in a file however. If this started happening regularly we would speak to you about it.
I like that there's an "attempt to communicate" thing here. You just have to watch out for people that make feeble attempts to communicate. For example, if I send a PM to someone, they're generally not going to be notified about it until they log on in which case they can take the turn anyway. If I'm waiting for a response to a PM, then that could potentially give me leeway to say "But I didn't get a response." Of course, I didn't
If you don't post to say you have covered a turn, this will always be an infraction.
I think that this is just good practice. Glad it's part of the clan rules. And this is an example of clan rules being stricter than site rules.
Again if you are legitimately sitting for someone. For example. They have gone for a week away. You cover them for the week. They told you they would be back 5pm Sunday. 8pm Sunday arrives they still haven't returned. You have planned to go to the cinema this evening. What do you!, do you put off your cinema trip so you can take the turns as they expire hour by hour...12am comes they still aren't home. Shucks that means you have to stay up all night, better get the coffee in. NO Of course not! this is another common sense event where you could justify taking the turns. They could well have been delayed on their way home. You can sit until they tell you otherwise.
Glad to hear this as this is one of the things that I was worried about. I would still like these "bigger" exceptions actually codified into the rules. I wrote up basically what I hope those exceptions are and I would include these in the actual rules. No need to write about every unique case, but some of the exceptions will come up more often than others and should be mentioned.
Patterns will be questioned however.
Good. I'm glad to hear that this doesn't sound like a witch hunt. I hope it doesn't turn into one.
