I think that means you're asking Rast to write a script capable of taking input and automatically editing cron jobs based on that. I haven't dabbled all that much in Linux, but I suspect that's more difficult, or at least more complex than anything else this game does so far. Not to underestimate Rast's l33tness, i'm just sayin' I wouldn't want to be doing that. Your chosen times of production are definately better then they currently are. -maceo
It would not be any harder then the Production Time Vote that is up. We are already voting on all sorts of possible production times. The only difference is in my suggested vote the time between votes could be less then 6 hrs.

I think he's saying that there should be 4 different production blocks a day, and that time keeping would be a separate vote for each time block (ie, you could have the 6-12 voted to occur at 8, while the following block would be completely random).
Yeah that is exactly what I am saying. Each of the blocks would have its own vote selection. This would allow people to vote of course, and perhaps the outcome would be closer productions during the day. Then the productions in the evening would be spaced out more then we can sleep!
That's an interesting idea. How would it apply to idles, though? And if you were getting tithed your ass off, you could just not let any production happen until the end of your vassalage, to spite your conqueror.
