Things do overtake people at times, but it does not have to be a pm saying where the hell are you?
A pm can be more diplomatic and state, in order to preserve your rating, blah, blah. Clan Challenges have been turned off.
You may turn this off by visiting My Settings.
But great idea and would solve a headache of challenges against people who have gone long term awol.
The PM "where the hell are you" was just an expression.
If I am leaving the site for a reason then I would advise clan leader/rest of clan via the clan forums and if necessary make myself unavailable and/or leave the clan.
This works well within the IVV clan and I am sure that other clans do something similar.
However, if I leave without doing this, then it means something far more urgent and important has happened in my life. Getting an email ain't going to make me jump hoops to rectify the position.
If a clan is worked properly then the members will know how to act properly and members leaving unannounced will not happen. Members who want/do not want to have extra games on their gameload will make themselves available/unavailable as appropriate and so prevent the problem of matching "unavailable" players.
