    I don't actually know why it's not possible to book a days vacation on the actual day but I suspect it's something to do with time zones.It's already Dec 4th in New Zealand so if someone there were to try to book a vaction at this very moment they would actually be booking it on Dec 3rd GMT which is what the site uses for it's clock.
    Using the same logic , you could then book a vacation today for last July which would be a nonsense.
    I don't know,or care what the other sites do as I only use this one

    You asked why it's not possible to book a day's vacation on the same day.
    I said I suspect it's to do with time zones.

    So why is it possible on other sites to book a day off on the day who also are world wide ?
    Why also is it possible on that site that they can stop the clock for both players ?
    Why can't we have this ?
    So discussion not ended

    It doesn't matter anyways padger as you don't get it...Have you stopped to think perhaps the other site may not be doing it correctly?

    I could be wrong, but I believe it was once explained that vacation days are scheduled to start at the beginning of the day, GMT.
    If that is the case you cannot start a vacation today, because today is already in progress.
    The earliest day that you could schedule a vacation to start would therefore be tomorrow, since it has not yet started.

    If that doesn't make sense, you could always send a feedback for a better explanation. 🙂

    Again read mwmiller post...it may eventually sink in as to why, as he said if you aren't happy with the explanation he gave which I think is the correct one....then send feedback!!!

    How long can you maintain this pathetic whining over something so trivial?

    As long as I think it is wrong
    Does it matter how trivial it is if it is wrong ?
