For most people, this is their first Hunger Games on here. I wasn't sure how things were going to be run, but now, after experiencing the first part, I know what to expect. And, I have a suggestion to make the experience better.

While roleplaying, I felt a little rushed. Rushed with everything. I know that with the books, training last for three days, and everything like that. We've got it accurate here. But, things are a little rushed. Roleplaying doesn't always happen at the same time as real life. Most people on here have school during the day, and Sorella doesn't live in the east coast, which is where most of us live. So, it makes it kind of hard to roleplay.
I spend a lot of time with my family, so it limits the time that I'm on the computer. This past week I was on spring break, so I could spend more time on the computer. But now, I'm back in school, and the hunger games are going on. It's a little weird to think about, but my character Klark was sleeping, right? But I didn't have a chance to reply until after I was done my homework, and done eating dinner, which wasn't until about 7:00 PM. Now I'm pretty sure that most people in the Hunger Games don't sleep until 7 PM.
ALSO, with the private training sesions, they only lasted one day, right? Well, I had no idea that the private sesions were going on until after the results were posted, wich caused my character to have a lower score.

SO, ALL IN ALL MY SUGESTION IS IS THAT WE EXTEND THE HUNGER GAMES PROCESS SO INSTEAD OF FOUR OR FIVE DAY'S, IT'S LONGER SO WE CAN POST MORE.

There is complications, your suggestion is good though. As it is difficult for me because I am in the west coast and you're all in the East.

There is still the complications you may want to consider. We know we could spend more time with it but if you think about it, if we don't move along fast enough people will drop off the face of the planet and just not post. Then we'll be stuck and have to create even more npc's which is a hassle. We really want a strong member base and a bigger one with more people online so one day we'll have 24 actual people playing the actual tributes. (: That's the complication I can think of.

You're right, there are so many variable though it's hard to determine what works where. It's going to take us a few games to get the feel for it down and working at top efficiency so everybody is happy. Wether that be designating posting times in the arena, or something else, rest assured this is the final concrete "it has to be this way" draft.

I'm in the same time zone as Sorella (GO WEST COAST!), but on the same school schedule as Pip. I think the private sessions were a little rushed, but people really wanted to find out their scores, and they don't seem to have really affected the Games that much. We are going a little too quickly, but I personally worry that if we go to slowly, we'll become less active and the site will die again. Still, I get your point, Pip. I'm scared that something's going to happen to my character while I'm at school, as well, but I think until we have a major problem this should be fine. If we can think of a better way, though, we should try it.

On a side note I'd like to mention that while the tribute player is not online they just tag along safely unharmed, nothing will happen to you to hurt you while you are gone. We have already thought of that. (:

Pip, you have a very good point. It does feel a little rushed, but that kinda gives you the sense of ergancy. I think that's a bit of a good thing to do when something like this happens. But I've almost had Nate die of dehydration, because we're doing it in RL time. I think It'd be kinda nice if the gamemakers would make it night by post every now and then, just so that school doesn't really interfere. Huntsville took spring break 2 weeks early, so that kinda screwed up the original plan for me.

I see your point Pip, but I think it needs to be a bit rushed. If it goes slowly people who are in the Hunger Games might get bored by the slowness. And if they get bored they might not be online as often and then miss the actual Games. I know that I would stop coming on if things went slower than they already are. I am also in a different time zone to all of you (I'm pretty sure I'm the only one in Australia (: ). But there are some similar times where I am online at the same time as most other people. So I don't really find that an issue.
