Am I wrong in expecting a little notice that a game will be
rebanged? I mean, I know there is a host computer where
the games reside, and it isn't mine, I get that. So if the
owner wants to rebang, it should totally be their option.

But if you are hosting a public server, are there not some
unspoken rules, or etiquette regarding standard expected

Examples: Don't play on your own server, don't mess w/
tedit after play begins, try to notify prior to rebang..

I just got a few planets to level 3 in a bone stock 250 turn game..
Happy new year! It's a whole new game this morning. >:-{

Aren't all games on Micro's site public?

Yay! I deleted my website, but I was STILL able to post an announcement in the main menu of my server a week before I re-banged everything!

I agree with you: it's polite to inform your players of a re-bang, and it's not very considerate to take them by surprise!

I agree and probably let my games run longer than they should. I also have games set to delete users after they are inactive for 30 days, so that helps me determine when a game needs reset.

I also have some regular players who will request a reset then the game has been stale mated, and I usually try to give at least a one week notice. I will also try to reset games around long holiday weekends when some people may have more time to play.

Some sysops rebang on a regular basis, I think SK most likely does at the first of the month and Vid rebangs on Wednesdays.

And FYI - I do play my own server but only in the game labeled as such. Mostly just to see how the server is "feeling", is it lagging, has it locked up? etc. And the game I'm playing was started over 2 years ago, all players including my original character have been deleted, so now I get to find and invade my own crap. LOL Game P is currently closed.
