Deadline extension

I'd like to request a deadline extension for any of my games which have deadlines shorter than 48 hours to sort out the multi-accounting allegation.

This is not an appropriate request for several reasons:

Firstly, when accounts are temporarily disabled by the moderators it is for reasons to do with violation of the site rules. In those circumstances, accounts may be closed, removed from games or have access temporarily disabled due to actions taken by the account holder. If they end up being able to get back into the game, then that is fortunate but not a reason to delay proceedings for everyone else.

Secondly, the period of time your account was disabled for was something in the region of 16 hours. Even if there was a basis for extending deadlines without player approval (which there wasn't), there would be no case whatsoever to do so by more than the length of the suspension period.

Thirdly, there is an established mechanism for extending deadlines at the request of players. For that to happen, all players have to agree. This can happen for any reason (or even no reason). At any time, if all players in a game wish to ask for a deadline extension, the procedure is to have all surviving players post in the shoutbox to agree to the extension request, and then PM the mods to let them know that the unanimous request is there.

Actually now they have a pause game feature which requires no mod interference.

Unless I am in the cheater's subforum. 99% of what I say is NOT as a mod.
