    Would it be possible to keep a previous copy of a submitted challenge that has been bounced ?
    I think one iteration should be sufficient.
    Thanks, Mike.

    How exactly would you do that? Create a new challenge for the bounced one? So that there are two challenges (one live ( the new one) one flagged as bounced(the old one))?

    I don't think that is what Mike is getting at.
    What I think he is saying is that suppose he proposes a challenge as leader to a clan and it is "bounced" repeating the challenge at a later date would be pointless.
    Having a record of bounced challenges, or even a warning i.e "this challenge has been proposed before" would save him time and effort.
    With the number of challenges Metallica propose, and the ever decreasing amount of available players/clans repeating exact challenges is practically impossible.
    When I was a leader I considered keeping my own spreadsheet of bounced challenges and counter proposals but decided it wasn't worth the effort

    But just because a challenge is bounced once doesn't mean it would be bounced again in future.

    Things change and a clan member might now be open to games when that clan member was not open to games previously, for example.

    I kind of agree with Ponderable in that the overhead might be undesirable, especially for a clan like Metallica, with dozens and dozens of challenges.

    A first step into that would be a list of challenges against a clan. That would be nice. (Could be limited to one year or 10 challenges)
