I promised some time ago to never ever again get involved in the vacation system debate.
My suggestion is that RHP "filter" the word "vacation" so that it can never appear in a thread.
I won't go into my reasons other than to say it is very frustrating to have this discussion keep coming up again and again and go nowhere.
You're quite right.
But why is there so many vacation threads in the first place?
Is it because people think that the matter is not discussed to it's end?
Because people are concerned about the vacation system?
Because people has misunderstood the idea about it?
Because people find players 'abusing' it and use it for 'cheating'?
Because people is unhappy about the way the vacation system is implemented?
Because people want another vacation system or want to get rid of the vacation system altogether?
I think the number of threads about the vacation system is a symptom of a problem, not a problem in itself. We can remedy the symptoms by banning the very word 'v*cation', but this is not within our proud tradition of democracy here at RHP. We should be able to discuss things open, certainly when people find it as a problem.
Nota bene that I'm not saying anything about our present vacation system, only the discussion about the vacation system. We find a intensive disussion about it because people want to discuss it. Do we really stop the discussion? This is the bottom line.
