sub needed 2nd time, doesn't work?

Postby socratease » 14 Oct 2013, 04:33

Due to recurring illness, I need a sub for a second time in the same game.

I entered the same sub that filled in for me the first time, but it doesn't seem to work. It doesn't show his username in the list of my active games, nor can he see it.

Is there a House Rule against this? Can I not have someone sub again, or is the same sub restricted from subbing twice and I have to find someone new?

No, currently the system logs the sub as having been in the game just as any other player. if you try to request the same sub a 2nd time, you will get an error saying the sub is invalid. This is because a player who has left a game is not allowed to return.

Ah, okay. Will look for a new sub then (I assume I can ask for a sub a 2nd time).

This is an anonymous game. Forgive the newbie question, how does one post for subs in such games?

This is how to post for a sub anonymously:
