I manage to take 5 mins to put my holiday settings on explaining I can't move, but will be able to on tuesday ... and when I finally come back to RHP, what is my ranking ? ...[text shortened]... e RHP. Is it not about time we all get 10 days a year 'protected holiday' from RHP ?
I mentioned that b4, and I got shot down straight away. Its definately a good idea. If you have a specified number of days where you can't be T/O'd and everybody had the same number of days, then a lot of the unfairness and greed for points would go away.
Check out this thread, for my take on it, and people's responses...
As it stands, you have to plan up to 4 months in advance if you foresee a holiday. Its just not right.
