I would like to relinquish my position in the queue to the next person. Apologies for not doing this sooner.
No problem, I'll update the queue :)

As Zexy has relinquished his position in the queue, @MassiveShock11 is next in line to host Version 75 and start the next game.

I'd like to have my name added to the list for v88, as soon as v76 concludes.

dibs on v90
Added you to the queue.
The version you host could end up being an earlier version than v90 though if other hosts currently in the queue are unavailable when their turn comes around.

OoooOOOooh! A queue! I must join it.
...
British in me speaking. Sorry.

Anyway, sign me up for v91. I'll probably be dead by then but let's be optimistic, huh? So the closer the better.

What happens if I just start an Up Vs. Down game without permission? Does it get deleted? What's the point of this queue? I don't get it.

Yes an Up or Down game posted without permission would be closed and archived.

The reason for the queue is that to avoid confusion we decided that we would only have one active Up vs Down game running at a time and the queue was introduced as a fairer way of deciding who would be hosting the games and when.

I can add you to the queue if you would like to host a game?

How did you come to the conclusion of making that rule in the first place?

The rule about not having more than one UvD thread at once is just the rule about not having duplicate versions of the same game.

The rules about the hosting queue came about because there was a high demand of people wishing to host future games but no orderly or fair way to decide who would go next. The queue was brought in to resolve this, it's not a perfect system as it can take time for each host's turn to come around, but it's a much fairer system overall.

I've just changed my name from APkMnTrainer to Seasonal Deerling, so please update that on the queue for v81.

And since I've changed my name form Vulpix037 to Moon Umbreon, that needs updating as well.

MegaPod now has 47 hours and 20 minutes to post UvD 79. That's certainly more than enough.
