Alright so here's the scoop. I think I need to ask for an activity call here...

When lineup was posted, I pmed ktut and told him I could do a monday evening/thursday evening time, and perhaps some time on the weekend. I told him I needed a few days notice before schedule, as seen here:

https://puu.sh/GpiJy/1e53921763.png after a couple days I pm again saying best times are now thurs/fri.

Ktut replied and we agreed to Friday @ 4pm EST. I offered a backup time of 8am-11am EST on Saturday. This is where I have to take responsibility, as it is currently daylight savings time. I did not offer clarification when Ktut asked for it when he asked if EST was -5. Currently, EDT is -4 and I showed up at 4pm EDT, and ktut was not around. During original 4pm time, we did pm Aurella and mambas teammates on smogtours discord in the hopes they could find him and bring him out. For whatever reason, ktut was apparently online on main in the UU room (?) - but I did not see him on smogtours, and I did try to pm him on Smogon when I was online.

We both accepted the misunderstanding, and attempted to schedule for this morning, as seen here: https://puu.sh/GpvVS/7b2a4511d6.png - I want to re-iterate that I was very clear that I specified times when I was available several times throughout the week, with Thursday being the last time I confirmed availability prior to his question.

Ktut's last online activity was at 9:07pm, asking when in the morning I was free. I specified an hour later that I was free during the original times I specified in the backup, Saturday morning from 8am-11am but this time clarified EDT. Ktut has not logged on in 14 hours since asking me when I was free during my morning. It is now 10:55am as I write this. https://puu.sh/GpwZu/a454717d06.png

It is my best-friend's wedding tomorrow, I am best man, I am simply not available.

Proof that I reached out to Aurella to try and get game done:

Sorry for any stress this causes. I wanted to get game done.

We are contesting the act call - Kink's negligence to clarify on the expected timezone when asked wrt Friday is what originally dominoed this scheduling mess in the first place. Kink shared earlier in the week (wed) via vm of his 3hr range on Saturday, but that was missed over the scheduling mishap that was Friday, and so on that day Ktut once again asked for scheduling clarity. By the time Ktut received a re-clarification on the Saturday availability it was already 4am Ktut's time, and Ktut couldn't come online to check on that until near the tail-end of that narrow 3hr range (Kink told me in Discord DM that he would stay 20 mins past 11am - but after some net issues ktut was on stours just 5 mins before 11:20 AM EDT).

Fri - Ktut showed up at the agreed time, but that time doesn't work out since Kink unintentionally misled Ktut on the timezone. Ktut still could've played past then, but understandably Kink cannot. Ktut asked twice what time would work for Saturday, but didn't get a concise answer till it was already Saturday 4am Ktut's time. Mind you they never came to a mutual confirmation about a Saturday time in the first place.

Sat - Ktut isnt able to come online to check on scheduling till just barely near 11am EDT (where I was told from Kink that he would stay an extra 20 mins to which Ktut barely made in time due to net issues). Kink allegedly couldn't play then but has since been regularly checking Smogon for at least a whole 30 minutes. We did not have a sub who could play for Saturday morning EDT.

Sun - Kink cannot guarantee a time he can play so will not give one (he has never specifically declared Sunday to be off-limits either). Nagas are calling act a day and a half before the deadline despite the scheduling issues being two-sided here at the same time of cutting us extremely short on scheduling opportunities.

There is 0 reason with all this time left before the deadline to demand an act win, especially when there was a mishap on each side in the way of getting the game done.

We have a sub who is prepared to schedule for either today or tmr for Sunday. There is 0 reason the nagas can't also provide a similar courtesy.

8:13 AM] Kink:
hey do you know if ktut will be on this morning?

[8:14 AM] Kink:
we messaged back and forth but he hasn't confirmed the time this morning

[8:16 AM] Aurella:
he didn't tell us anything of what you guys talked/worked out

[8:16 AM] Aurella:
do you mind sharing those logs with me

[8:29 AM] Kink:
Ye will post in few minutes or check his wall

[8:29 AM] Kink:
I’m here for now at least few hours
[8:33 AM] Kink:



[8:49 AM] Kink:
my only minor concern is he hasn't been online since he asked his question
[8:49 AM] Kink:
so I'm not sure how to communicate with him to let him know I'm online for next couple hours
[8:50 AM] Aurella:
I tagged him in mambas to let him know that but he hasn't been on yet
[8:50 AM] Kink:
Fair enough
[8:51 AM] Kink:
so here's my situation: I'm a best man at a wedding this weekend
[8:51 AM] Kink:
I leave today at noon EDT to go to the wedding grounds
[8:52 AM] Kink:
I can't promise I'll have time but I can try to squeeze in a sunday-on-the-fly time
[8:52 AM] Kink:
Wedding starts at 3, so maybe in my morning as well we can possibly do something but I can't guarantee
[8:53 AM] Kink:
like we still have 2 hours for him to show up, but wanted to let you know what was up with me this weekend
[9:45 AM] Kink:
still no sign of him... want to get a sub in?
[9:47 AM] Aurella:
we're not gonna sub him out, and there def isn't anyone who could cover for him at this hr anyway
[9:47 AM] Kink:
ok
[9:47 AM] Kink:
I will stay online for extra 20 minutes past 11am gmt-4
[9:47 AM] Kink:
I'd like to get game done
[9:47 AM] Kink:
sorry for any stress this is causing
[10:24 AM] Kink:
for transparency, informing you that I pmed kjaas to ask what we should do and he said just communicate to you guys that I reached out and to keep reaching out in case ktut shows up
[10:25 AM] Aurella:
I have hope but I don't think he will show up rn. It would be easier I think if we could just have a time range for tmr and then ktut picks somethings and posts that on the scheduling vm while you're likely out doing things today.
[10:26 AM] Kink:
please understand I'm not trying to be difficult
[10:26 AM] Kink:
it's my best-friend's wedding tomorrow, I am best man
[10:26 AM] Kink:
the most I can promise is to show up when I wake up, chill for an hour as I poop and get ready before I got to his room
[10:26 AM] Kink:
so like
[10:26 AM] Kink:
maybe 9? maybe 10?
[10:27 AM] Kink:
I cannot guarantee and don't wish to be penalized for promising something I can't guarantee
[10:27 AM] Kink:
hope you see that I am trying here
[10:28 AM] Kink:
am still sticking around in hopes he comes online
[10:42 AM] Aurella:
we need a time range for tmr, esp cause your availability is very narrow around what time you can schedule for.
[10:46 AM] Kink:
I have no confirmed availability tomorrow
[11:06 AM] Aurella:
ktut
[11:06 AM] Aurella:
can play now
[11:07 AM] Kink:
ok I'm here
[11:09 AM] Kink:
I gotta go soon though
[11:10 AM] Kink:
really pushing my timing here
[11:12 AM] Kink:
ok he's not here aurella
[11:12 AM] Kink:
I'm out
