22 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Shoot, think I messed this up, I joined the 5th game since I played, did not allow five others to play before I joined again, I have voted cancel, sorry for my hasty confusion and the extra work it has caused...
22 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: Not sure what to do exactly, do we have to cancel? Is there something like a TD for the series?
22 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: If I had read the thread more carefully I would not have joined this game... That said, there is some ambiguity. I was never the belt holder, and this is not a rechallenge (I am challenging someone different), though even if it were a rechallenge the language used it not definitive (“I also like the idea“)... In my head I was thinking there was a “5 Game Rule” and thought that meant I could not challenge until the 5th game, which may be why xorxes said, “the only restriction I think is that you didn't play in one of the last four or five games, I don't remember exactly.” Again, if I had re-read this thread before joining, I would not have joined, though my general sense is that most people playing these 1v1 games are relatively good natured and laid back enough to say “honest mistake, but don’t do I again” though that’s just me best guess. I do not think there is a TD, I think it’s a self-regulated / honor system.

How about this, we just play this out, and when I lose I will not make another challenge for a minimum of 6 games being complete beforehand, so at least I’ll get the average correct since this time I only waited for 4 games to be complete?
23 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1901: ok, let's play then.
23 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Good luck!
23 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1901: Same to you!
23 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: I have a medical procedure tomorrow, going to be put under, I may not ready the build...
23 Apr 18 UTC Autumn, 1903: No worries.
24 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Willing to pause for 12 hours, then I’ll be back on track? If you agree, feel free to vote unpause right after pausing, thanks for considering?
25 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Paused. I’m also traveling for business, so I don’t mind the extra time...
25 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Great! I’ll vote unpause when I get up and you can vote unpause when it works for you, thank!
27 Apr 18 UTC Spring, 1904: Unpaused...
