    ...Say, just a thought: what happens if a particular user on here becaomes inactive when it's time for them to host a game (or they just forget about hosting one in the first place) for an extended period of time? Because that might prove to be a problem in future cases such as myself, so I'd like to know what'd happen in that event.

    An excellent question. As it so happens, I had a similar thought myself. After discussion with the other F&G staff members, this is what we decided. Please note the the following rule will be added to the OP:
    Does that make sense?

    I see no problem with it. If my calculations are correct, then @Jin Kirigiri has just under 26 hours left.

    Yeah, that sounds pretty good to me... though I would prefer if the time window was a tad more lenient (three days instead of two because three is a good number or something), but that's just me. I'm OK with that rule. Now I'd better think of something to theme my next one around in the event that Jin goes inactive... Actually, brings up another point:

    I assume that, in the event of one person's inactivity, that the next person will be subjectetd to the same 48 hour time restriction and all that, correct? And if so, then what happens if the person that was one slot down from the inactive bloke also happens to themselves be inactive? Because I'm pretty sure that'd just result in an infinate loop of inactivity, wouldn't it?

    If it gets that bad, BAG, I will host a version of UvD, myself. We could always go for another Mewtwo vs Mew, right? :p

    But yeah, I'd start thinking about a theme, if I were you, since it doesn't seem like Jin is around.

    Oh hey, that De Lancie game I hosted apparently set a record for the fastest finish in the enterity of the game's history or something. I knew it was going to be kinda one-sided, but I didn't expect it to be so astronomically unbalanced. Cool.

    In any case, I may as well reserve another slot so I can try and set a record for the longest Up vs. Down.

    Somehow, I highly doubt any game will actually beat the current record for longest Up vs Down game...
