thank youPulling the flag is the easy part. The main thing is all the prep work before hand. Make sure you use chat and messages to let your team know that the leaders of the FA are ready to pull the flag. Make sure that everyone that wants the prizes for the current stage have placed at least 1 badge somewhere on the map. When the flag is pulled, the stage is over and those that did not get a chance to place a badge will loose out on the prizes (and more points for the fellowship) for that stage. There is NO going back.
Please make sure to account for the time zones of all your teammates. My fellowship is scattered all over the planet. As I write this, some of my teammates are going to or they are in bed. I also like to give last call warnings at least an hour before the actual pull after everyone has had a chance to place badges.
With the new changes to the FA, when you click on the flag at the top of the stage, there is a there is now a banner that you can click under the reward chest that will show who all has placed or not placed badges (in my example 21 of 25 have placed badges). Please click on that to see who has not placed a badge, and try and find out if they are interested or not.
As with anything, the flag can't wait forever, so when you are sure you are done, you can press accept to end the stage and hand out the prizes!
I'm considering making reading your mail mandatory. I wonder how that will go over?
When does the next Fellowship Adventure start ? And is there a way to get a sneak peek at the stages?
What do you mean by "individual balancing?"
Mobile users cannot see the index. Scroll down and look in the section “Bottomless Pit Strategy”.It is in the index left column of my document. You do not need a special program to open it.
The section you are looking for is quite far down the index (eighth from the bottom) under Bottomless Pit Strategy subsection Individual Balancing Method.I went to this: https://tinyurl.com/5n84ne54 and selected Bottomless Pit from the left side index. Found nothing on "individual balancing." Had a description of the 6 kinds and a comparison to previous pit layouts.
There was a cryptic "My groups never use Spreadsheets or countdown threads; there are far simpler ways to get virtually the same results." starting in the next section, but no mention of "individual balancing" there, either.
How about something here or there about those "simpler ways to get virtually the same thing" as spreadsheets and/or countdown threads?
