You know how when you log in and go to the Event Diary you
get the option to book to monster - it should carry an official
statement there of what the position is if all bookable slots are
filled. E.g. "Whilst we cannot promise to accommodate more
monsters than there are booking slots, we always appreciate
people turning up to monster and will fit you in if we reasonably
can. However it does help the club, and helps avoid disappointment,
if those wishing to monster book to do so."

Or alternatively "if all monster slots are booked it is unlikely
that we will need extra monsters" - if that's the case (which
would surprise me). Or a comment on implications for
monster points / credits / other rewards of turning up
without booking. Or whatever CMT deems appropriate.

But some info please! I have known one inexperienced
clubmember feel unable to turn up on spec if all slots
were filled, which is understandable if there is no
official statement.

Dear gods, do you really need to have this sort of minutiae written out? You do realise that the CMT have real world jobs on top of their Laby commitments, don't you...?

I've never seen the Caves turn monsters away (barring those physically incapable of safely doing the job), and 99% of refs are on these groups so if you desperately want to ref for a specific dungeon *and* there are no monster slots left, you could just drop the ref an e-mail. Or even turn up on spec, just like in the old days. You just won't get the "prebooked monster" bonus credit, but that's all

Fact:- an inexperienced clubmember nearly didn't turn up to Laby because of this

Anecdotal, but it suggests there may be many in the same boat; and frankly
I would have felt the same way, based on the presentation of the bookings section,
despite knowing how things used to be in the old days.

Solution:- reach an official position, however vague/flexible it might be, and change
adventure bookings template to state official position

It's hardly minutiae, it shouldn't take much effort (10 minutes work done once,
works forever via standard website template).

For big events, 5 minutes getting the wording right should help. (E.g. Final
Dawn or Myths type events.)

And by the way the inexperienced clubmember I refer to is NOT
the person who posted a query about this on the general forum
(MattJ if memory serves). So that's at least two people who
might not have shown up just this coming weekend, and then
there was me getting the wrong end of the stick about what
the policy was too. Now I appreciate that you may doubt my
common sense, but if this is affecting several people, even if
mainly inexperienced clubmembers, it's an issue.

Thanks Matt - we'll take a look at it and see what we can do - although it has been evident recently that its rare for many people to actually read any of the notes on the adventure bookings. We can certainly look to add something though.

At some point I'd also like to add a section on the forums where we can put a string of topics of useful information for newer players to know. That may well take us some time though

Trouble is Rachael, those people who do read them don't cause you any bother, it's just some people, not all of us smile.gif
