Event Running Schedule and Guidelines Updated 10/8/16

Postby Hawk » Fri Nov 11, 2011 12:02 am

Alright, after more discussion we have made even more changes to the event running guidelines.

Events will now be AUTO run by the game as of 11/27/2012

Auto Events:
10+ Entries will Auto run at -1 days.
6+ Entries will auto run at -3 days.
Also, auto system events have been fixed so they do now set themselves back up once an event is ran.

Player made:
6+ Entries will Auto run at -10 days.

Deletion: In order to keep the game cleaned up, we will now be deleting events once they are -21 or more overdue.
Note: -21 or more events might be run with 4 or 5 horses so long as there are at least 3 different players entered.
-7 or more Autos with zero entries will also be removed, as it shows us there are not enough active eventers to justify leaving them in the system.
Yes, this means even if events finally fill enough to be run, they will still be removed from the system and not set back up until requested again. So please think wisely when making your events, and band together to to keep those ponies moving along!

Too many events! Remember, when players create events that are already up as autos, this results in the auto events being deleted! If you don't have any intention of continuing to host those events, then don't put them up!


The exception to this auto running system are the Trainoff events. Those will NOT be run by the auto run system and must be player or Op run.

Trainoff events will only be run at -3 if the host requests it. They also must have 6 active participants and at least 6 horses in the events to be run.
Note: Trainoff events that reach -30 days, will also be run after that point, regardless of the entries.

Gym events will NOT be run by ops until -21 days. It is up to the players to run them. Since these events still fill quickly, there is no reason for the hosts to not be running them.
Gym events can not be run by the player until they are -3 days overdue.

Train offs: Requests to remove non train off horses from train off events: Train off events, must have train off in the name and be an official train off posted on the forum, horses must also have some form of "brand" in the name to show they are a train off horse. Please wait until the events are ready to be run, before requesting the non train off horses removed. Train offs must also have at least 6 active participants and 6 horses to be considered a train off.

Also, Gym events do NOT qualify as train off events. http://www.virtualhorseranch.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=157616

Requesting extra events: If extra events are need, for train offs or just over all lack of certain types, some of the ops may be willing to create extras. I know I will, but will not fulfill requests for restricted events or events that have more than enough already running.

Events created in attempt to be restricted, or deny players to enter events using such ploys as labeling them in an attempt to age restrict, will have there events renamed. This is viewed as an attempt to cheat and exploit the system. Age restriction does NOT exist, and all players are allowed to enter all events in their level bracket so long as they are not a legitimate Train off event.
