I got a pause request for this Sunday, so that host will be skipped (but run before next thursday if you submit your turns earlier).

So either Yggdrasil, darkclow or Sorigal asked for a break.

For me it's common sence to accept a break when requested, and in a case like this I don't mind giving no reason (like personal matters) either. Since everybody is turning in quite dedicated every time there is absolutly no hint for abuse and the game is progressing steadily. Which would be the only two possible reasons to reject such a request.

Still.

I'ld really like to read about a break request from the player requesting it and not from the admin. Seriously this is bad manners in my humbly opinion.
This game is without diplomacy not without forum activity for organizing gameplay, is it not?

thank you very much. :smile:

Or two unrelated players (...who go to the same festival or so...).

Same for me. I prefer these things to be handled in the open, to make obvious that there's no foul play going on. I see all messages, PM or forum, so PM is not a more direct way to reach me.

There is one (small) argument: I wouldn't post on the internet that my mansion on Park Place / Boardwalk will be unoccupied from Feb 29 to May 35 and nobody will watch my new TV and my wine cellar.

Personally, I judge a host postponement a small risk for that attack scenario (after all, I'm asking for neither a detailed reason, nor a mail address), but maybe someone is a little bit more paranoid.
