    I tried making this post like three times at work :/


    Days: Everyday except Thursday and Saturday (gotta cut back this time)


    Time: As before, I'll post before the end of the day, but because of shift work, I can't really pick a specific time that I'll work


    TimeZone: UTC -7:00


    Team: Mage preferred, but I see a lot of people entering that so Mercenary is my second choice. (Really - I want to be Royalty ;.; )

    Still taking signups, however I'm going to close MAGES for now as they have about 20 more weekly updates than either of the other two teams.


    Please remember:


    - I need your time zone in UTC/GMT + or - a number of hours - I DON'T want an acronym because I don't live where you do, and I don't know every acronym for every time zone, and I'm not going to look it up ;)


    - Royalty is only for mods/admins

    May I ask a couple of basic questions - this being the first time I've participated in a GMD.

    I am scheduled Monday to Friday and GMD starts on a Saturday, so I assume that there is no instant chain break if my first post isn't until Monday 17th.  Is that correct?

    And what do I do about any work that is done over the weekend, if I manage to do it?  Do I ignore it, add it to Monday's work achieved or make an extra post?

    @Candacis

    Thanks for those, they are great!

    Put me down for Wednesdays and Sundays. I may post more, but keep it simple for now.

    My first update is this: I've played my game and refamiliarized myself with what I've already done (not nearly as 'polished' as I thought).

    I'm in the process of going through the code reading my comments so I can remember how all that works and where I was going.

    Searching through all my notebooks to find all the old written notes and fragments of ideas I had.

    Life back in relative order. I've played a lot of games, Alpha and Beta tested a few, and I've still got a story to tell.

    Mouser, it hasn't started yet, and you haven't provided the information requested. Please take a look back at the first couple of posts.


    ksjp17 - haven't you taken part in a GMD before? Basically, from the start date to the end date, if it's a day you said you'd post (Monday-Friday), that's when you post. So if GMD starts on Saturday and you said you were doing Monday-Friday, then you wait for Monday to come around.


    While you CAN do extra work on your "off" days, you won't get credit for it, and we don't want you to post it here. We ONLY want posts from you on the days you said you'd post, because that's what we use to keep the teams as even as possible.


    Candacis, AWESOME! Thanks :D I'll add those to the second post too!
