    First of all, I think we should get an Absence Thread stickied here.

    Second, I will be gone tomorrow (Starting at 8:30 UTC), Monday, and part of Tuesday (getting back at 7:00 UTC).

    I'd like to receive an extension in Last Stand, The King of Rivers and Hills, Fire and Blood, It takes five to tango, TBRCCH, and A Stormy Clash of Kings and Swords. Most of these probably won't roll around, but if they do, just give me the extension.

    You can sub me in the rest. (Be a war-monger with TPW and HoJ).

    Great idea!
    I think that anyone who doesn't inform his absence here shall be skipped.
    Don't skip players if they post their absence here, unless it's for a long time

    Also an option. I think all hotseats shall update their rules, adding this rule:

    1) If a player has not done his turn within 24 hours, and did not inform his absence in the absence thread, he shall be skipped.

    2) If you inform the hotseat that you will be absent in the absence thread, you will be granted a maximum extension of 36 hours. If you failed to meet this deadline, and failed to find someone to sub your turn you shall be skipped.

    Are this acceptable rules? I highly recommend all hotseats to add these rules.

    I think if you are reliable at playing turns and need more time (such as me, as I'll be gone a few days), you should be given more than 36, especially if it is an important turn.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    I am of the opinion that pretty much any request for extension is to be granted, within reason ofc.
    As long as one knows that the player has not forgotten and that it wont be left standing for several days,
    longer absence is to be arranged a sub though or face a proper skip.

    If people dont take the time to post such a request but has been online however, i desire a boot put up their respective darkest places.

    Darkest places?

    So...

    Their souls?

    "For myself, I would see the White Tree in flower again in the courts of the kings, and the Silver Crown return, and Minas Tirith in peace: Minas Anor again as of old, full of light, high and fair, beautiful as a queen among other queens; not as a mistress of many slaves, nay, not even a kind mistress of willing slaves. War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Númenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise."

    I truly believe that 60 hours is more then enough for someone to do his turn... If he needs even more time then that, he should nominate a sub.

    I wouldn't want to get a boot stuck in my darkest place

    This thread shouldn't replace notifying admins via PM and posting in the respective hotseats, IMHO. It should just be an additional way of showing when you are likely to be back.

    I'm back. And I'd kinda like this to be enough notice for extended absences. I am in like 20 hotseats, and it will take way too long to identify and PM each and every admin.

    I agree with completenoob. This sticky should be enough for absence announcements.

    I have problems with my internet connection and need to be subbed in all hotseats for at least few days, maybe even weeks. I can only acces TWC via phone so I have no means to download my turns
