Re: SYDNEY PEOPLE! (Currently Orgasmising: 27 September 2009)

The only days I can do before the 29th (which is roughly when I assume you're leaving, |Erasmus|), are Monday 23 and Tuesday 24. Tuesday'd be better if we were doing something in the day as well, Monday if it's only the night.

You've misinterpreted the spirit of the first one. I was just saying that we ought to be able to adjust the number of games away from a set limit if necessary. And that of course this would require discussion. And, well, the semi-continuous newbie game thing happened because of this discussion. And ...

Probably more appropriate for a larger game. Also, I haven't seen it :(

Can I also mention that another problem with the current method (and the one that you are proposing where we merely have more games) is that if we wait until right at the end of games, the games in signups will be flooded.

Oh, right, the other advantage of this proposed one is that it deconvolutes the system quite considerably. There only needs to be one thread for signups.
