It has come to my attention that not everyone seems to know the proper procedures for REQUESTING that another be allowed to do their turns.

It is very simple:

E-MAIL the mods asking if the other user may do your turns, include the date this user will start and the date you will be doing your own turns again. You may only have another user do your turns for a period of no more than 5 days. If for some reason you are not able to start doing your own turns by the date specified, you're basically screwed. The other user is NOT to continue your turns after the specified date. Wait for a response. If you do not receive a response (though you will), assume that the answer is no, do NOT just allow the other to do your turns.

Some things to remember;

- Include the dates
- Include your username, as well as the username of the person doing your turns
- Change your password before AND after the user does your turns
- Do NOT use nations mail, the forums, or a help ticket to make this request

Failure to follow these procedures will result in denial, regardless of if you then follow the correct procedures, Failure to follow them a second time will result in a warning.

Thank you, that is all.

We should keep the link to this thread somewhere as proof is HAS been stated. I'm getting pissed with messages in nations asking of they could get someone to play their turns. The rule is simple and if you dont follow it, too bad for you, you'll lose tech, get a warning and most probably lose your tech alliances.

"E-MAIL the mods asking if the other user may do your turns"

One thing ive noticed is that alot of people who send emails about it dont really ask for approval... They just flat out tell us that this is whats happening and we're gonna do it. I dont know about the rest of the moderation team but I for one am getting a bit fed up with it.

In a nutshell stop taking it for granted and follow the proper procedures or every email we recieve concerning turns that isn't done correctly down to the last dotted i WILL be denied.

From experience, i sent an email to all the mods, and after a week, i got one reply and i think it was from FBG. The only way i got the mods to see my email, was to actually message them or tell them in the game chat that i had sent them an email. well in that case, i might as well have asked them for approval then.

That was nonsensical, even for WARBEAST.

Moonshine makes a good point though. The system only works if the mods/admins REGULARILY check their email.

Sigh. Longer rounds rant:

If rounds were longer, as they were, missed turns would not be nearly as much an issue. Problem solved.
