Early Host ???

Post by Aleortu » Thu Mar 13, 2014 10:59 pm

It hosted an hour earlier today. I rushed from my work to home to finish my turn and when I open the email to send it (24 minutes before deadline) I find the new turn already there. What happened?

I thought something was going on. My last two turns were better than normal. That is most unfortunate for you. I didn't even think about Daylight Savings time effecting VGA planets. I would have been fine with running that turn again given the situation (too late now obviously).

Considering this is a big international community, an email or something would be handy in times like this.

The AutoTroll PC like most PC in USA switch the daylight saving time automatically.
If ][avok remembers he normally does send out a mail. I never see it before the time as there are no DST where I live.
The time remaining on the game pages does handle this as well, but the best option is to have your turn in early [-X
