It is now October 4th. This is getting ridiculous. Where is the July 1 rulebook?

The updates for rule changes have been clearly posted as they became legal and yes the current rulebook does not reflect the changes - yet.

Saying its ridiculous does not help it to get it changed :)

The site admins that run the site need to cross reference the changes and add them to the online rulebook. Typically this is done at end of year and till then under the official announcements again it is clearly posted.

I will ask the site admins to update the information as they are able and as they are volunteers (like everyone who is helping to keep the game running) thank you to them for taking the time to do this when they are able.

To be fair, this is NOT typically done at the end of the year. It's typically done any time new rules goes into effect (that is, July 1st & January 1st).

There is no reason why one can't cut & paste the new rules into the Word doc rulebook, print it as PDF, and put it up on the website. It takes so little time.

Personally, I used to do this as an EB member (and I wasn't even Secretary!), and have it posted THE DAY the new rules were in effect. Anything passed was passed long before the actual "go live" day, so there's no reason it can't be done ahead of time.

Operating with an un-updated rulebook in the 4th month since they went into effect is just silly.

So, if the EB can't currently manage the task, send me the doc and the new rules, and I will happily update it just so we can get it done.

The EB can manage the task but to my knowledge no eb member is a admin on the site that the rules are posted on... thank you for stepping up and offering to do it Inox but if you are not a admin for that site ... then any admin that has access to that site please contact me so that we can get this done.

Again thank you for offering Inox.

FWIW

What I gave the Board when I resigned from my appointed position included a July 2013 rulebook with the changes I was told about. I was NOT told what failed and so some of that was included but only need to be removed.

And I call * on the whole admin thing. I provided all that to the people that needed it months ago.

Thank you Havoc, please either send me the master copy I can update it then send it back to you for review and posting or you can use the posted updates that have been posted in the official sections of this forum and then send it to me to verify its accuracy before posting it officially. Again thank you!

So no new rulebook yet either. Is it going to take more than 6 months to update the not quite complete version for July 1 2013 to the Jan 1 2014 version?
