Hold on a moment. I know for a fact that at least 2 people besides Teddy and myself submitted Host Your Own scripts. Why, then, in an era of one show at a time in order to prevent the same people from hosting every time, is the same person hosting two of the last three shows, essentially skipping over everyone else? It seems like the main reason behind doing only one show - which, granted, I was vocally against in the first place - is being completely disregarded. This isn't to flame anyone; I want an honest answer as to why Teddy is getting a second turn before at least three other people who submitted scripts.

I'd like to note that this is in no way, shape, or form saying anything negative of Teddy. I always enjoy reading your shows and I'm sure this one will be great. In fact, I'd like to participate in this show.

The rule makes sense in the long run, given recent HYO trends, but if you are correct and there are other scripts waiting in queue, then perhaps that rule should be temporarily suspended. No offense to Teddy, but his last show did drag on for quite some time. If this show flows the same way, it would be nice to have a second one going in tandem. If more participation in this section is what we want, then I think the two-shows-at-a-time route is something to consider for the time being.

It would be nice to have a second show going in tandem anyway. Your show went historically quick; from experience, usually shows last about a month. Nevertheless, counting the week of administrative lag, the players who weren't called down have gone an entire month without an opportunity to play. That seems rather unfair.

And speaking of which, if we are going to have one game at a time (really, this is true regardless of how many games are going on), can we at least have the next show start sign-ups while the previous show is in the showcases? The fact that it was an entire week before the next show was posted completely kills the idea of having more participation. If another game was running, this might be excusable, but waiting an entire week, for whatever reason, is preposterous.

In the past, there were two shows going on concurrently, sometimes with a third show being hosted by whoever was moderating going on at the same time. I like the "one show at a time" thing, because it will give more people a chance to get their turns at hosting. Will Adam keep with tradition and host his own show alongside someone else's, or will the one at a time rule apply to those shows as well?

I waited through Renty's now-concluded show to see who the next host would be, and Adam told me to wait until Friday after TPIR to get new requests, so here I am! I would've waited for the other hosts to step ahead in line, and I do enjoy their shows, but maybe the better thing to do is to wait a month or two to prepare a script for the next show. We'll see how the new era goes, and good luck to my fellow hosts whose turns will come after mine has ended.

So far, we have six players; I will extend the deadline to Saturday so that more players can sign up. Happy Thanksgiving, and I look forward to starting the show next week, if not sooner.
