Also, ooter the reason I didn't use your rule is because you take up 2 pages of text with that rule, rules should be simple and easy to explain and convey anything over a sentice or 2 is too long.
That's true, it was pretty long. To be fair though, a lot of its length was examples and explanations, as well as me arguing the case for my proposal. It would be shorter in 'rule form'. Even removing the explanations and examples, you are right that it would be long. That's necessary to avoid problems though. My rule addresses the three important criteria.
1) Preserving game score with an exception for early lag.
2) Proper rounding of period times.
3) MOST IMPORTANTLY, it addresses how disputes should be resolved. That's the longest part, but also the most important.
It's as long as it needs to be to accomplish that. If you want rock solid rules that will prevent disputes and confusion, use my proposals.
