21 Aug 12 UTC Spring, 901: (Guaroz): THE CONTRACT
1. You won't CD. Please do not join if you may stay away from your computer in the next few months.
2. Each time you log in the game, you decide and FINALIZE your orders before you log out. Saving orders is not allowed under any circumstance.
3. If you're the last one who finalizes, you must refresh the game page and finalize your orders for the next phase.
4. If you have to retreat your last unit in Autumn and you can't retreat it into a SC, you must disband it. Thanks for the game, mate, we wish you better luck next time! :)
5. This is the first game you'll check each time you log in VDiplomacy. Please don't get caught like you logged in the site 2 hours ago, when the current phase was already started, and you didn't put your orders in.
6. The goal of rules from 2 to 5 is to have a quasi-live game. What's hoped is to play at least 2 phases a day everyday. However, in order to handle weekends, Thanksgiving etc, the phase lenght is set to 37 hours. Gentlemen, please don't abuse this.
7. Voting for Pauses, Extensions and Cancel is not allowed under any circumstance. Voting for a Draw is not allowed during the first 4 years.
8. In the rare case an unpredictable issue keeps you away from the internet long enough to risk a NMR, you'll do your best to find a sitter or someone to send the game to, using Country-Switch Feature in your Settings page. Please mind:
- Sitters can't stay anonymous and must be announced on this thread, both as they're hired and as they're fired;the sitter must confirm with a message on this thread.
- Please try to find your sitter (or the person you switch your Country to) among those people who log in VDip OFTEN. Also, before he accepts the task, he must read this post and this Contract. Tell him to do so.
- This possibility has been given to you to handle sudden, exceptional and short RL issues. Please don't join the game if you already know you'll need a sitter at some point.
9. If, notwithstanding all, someone CDs, I'll post a "Please take over this Country" on this thread and the game will go on whether someone subs or not.
10. Other parameters are: cheap 10 D buy-in; Random Country; PPSC; Non Anon; No Press; RR 90+ MinPhs 100+;NMR 0/1.
11. Rules looks simple enough, but if you need clarifications feel free to ask your question on this thread.
12. Once you read this whole post, all rules are clear, you accept them, you promise to observe them, you will PM me asking for the password: I'll PM it to you ASAP.
13. This is an invitational Private game. Password has been given to you for your use only, you're not allowed to tell it to anyone under any circumstance.
14. (omissis)

It should go without saying that, being the game a Gunboat, players are not allowed to talk about it (by PM, Forum, email, voice, phone or whatever) with anyone and for any reason until the game is over.
EoG statements are welcome after the game is over.

Have fun! :)
