In my view the answer is No - but I stand to be corrected.

At the present time a regular host has an entry with no Date or Time.

We all know who the regular hosts are so I don't see why there is any need to create a listing until there is a firm commitment to host.

At the end of the day if a host wants to preserve some text from the free format text box then they can save this in Word or Notepad and the paste it into their new listing.

Perhaps I need a bit more Xmas spirit but it is a bit early for a tipple just now.

Agreed again. Also Meld, you better not post that Bah Humbug pic.

Also 3 weeks in advance, or is it 2 (Until its all over), can one be sure of being able to host

As a point of order I've moderated two games out of the upcoming games section. Both have changed dates at least three times each. People are turning up expecting the game then being left disappointed.

Mine was put up with no confirmed date/dime due to work commitments...only reason why it was listed without a definite date.

Was it harming anybody being there? No.
Did it cause any grief? No.

Stop moaning!

If a person submits his/her name to the Join option in a games prelude, they will receive an email of any changes made to the forthcoming game.
