    When can you play our Week 9 game? I'm available any time after 6:30 PM CST on Thursday, or any time Saturday morning. Let me know what works best for you...

    I can't go Friday night; I have an event to go to for work. Also, the advance is Friday night. Any way you can play our game tonight? I can go pretty late if necessary.…

    Im aware of the situation. I don't push advances, typically. It would be up to one of the admins, specifically RynoAid if he wants push the advance. Shaun Mason would also be the person to ask. If its up to me though, we aren't waiting.

    Why the short advance this time?

    We advance 3 times per 7 days. We advanced last Sunday night, Wednesday and will advance again very late tonight and again on Sunday. That is the schedule we've had for past week.

    Typically I try to break up the advances as best I can but with Tuesday being Valentines Day, I figured most people would be busy Tuesday night - and they were if I remember correctly when looking at the scores and most games hadn't been played. That means our advance was Wednesday and that puts us a tad behind schedule but again, we did this same schedule last week. Also, I let everyone know ahead of time what our advances were going to be like this week.

    Had I advanced us on Tuesday, that would have meant that advance was shorter and one of the other two were longer..... as long as people know ahead of time I don't think it should matter.

    Depending upon what time you guys plan on advancing tonight, I should be able to head out of the event early and make it home for a 10:00 or 11:00 PM start time (11 at the latest). Assuming that Dtown can make this work, would you guys mind holding off on the advance until 11 or midnight tonight?? I know we have stood firm on advance dates in the past, but this was an extremely short advance period (LATE Wed Night - Fri Night).

    I have no problem waiting for you guys tonight. Ive been saying for awhile that the advance will be LATE tonight.

    The advance pace is the same as it was last week. If this window was longer, a different one would be shorter.

    If you think its going to be a problem, talk with Ryno and work out what the advance schedule should be. Ryno left it in my hands and, as has been the case since we started season 2, we advance roughly 3 times every 7 days. I feel like the pace is important to keep people interested - if we need to stagger the days a bit better in order to accommodate people better thats fine but my preference is still 3 every 7 days.

    That sounds good, Keller. I'll do my best to keep you updated on exactly when we are planning to play. I like the 3 advances per week, and wouldn't want to change it; just requesting an hour or two flexibility every so often.

    Flexibility is fine, especially Friday night when everyone is out and about and I'll be up late anyways.

    I think that advancing Saturday morning consistently would allow people to have two weekend nights to schedule and play games...most of us have MORE time on the weekends.

    That is usually what I try to do, advancing in the middle of the day saturday to allow games to be played before an after, but thats not always possible. If I get some commissioners to help me, maybe it can be.

    I wasn't implying that you couldn't make it work, was hoping you could play a little later if possible. Again, just make sure you're tagging people when you respond. Thanks, JSimms
