    There should be no reason for anyone to reserve a mining task. There is no preparation needed, you can do it, or you can't.
    While it is very hard to get a whole co-op to follow the rules that work toward the good of the whole co-op, that's what needs to happen. Reserve should be ONLY for tasks that can be prepped for, 2 ship trips, production, and only reserve crops for as long as 1st harvest.
    And if anyone cannot work for the common good of the co-op, they should move to an easier one.
    May sound harsh, but I take pride in my co-op leader standing up for those of us that respect our co-op and work hard for it.

    My co-op disagrees. We reserve mining tasks for the same reason as any other, to say "I plan to do this task next." The opinions about reserves are pretty strong, but they're still opinions.

    I AGREE but we are a group of four members we know what each one likes so it's not been an issue for us.

    I agree that there should be a way the Leader can enable or disable the Reservation system. It's caused way too many nasty arguments and tore my co-op apart....

    Here's a copy of a post I did elsewhere.

    "If you are in a competitive co-op, and going for 135 points tasks, only 3 or 4 seem to come up on the board at any one time. Even if you keep dumping lower ones.

    So, if you have 25 people racing and 4 of them reserve a task, that leaves 21 players having to wait and check back for the next available task. Or they have to "Steal" a reserved task. I HATE stealing a task. But when you're in a close race, you need to get the tasks done faster than the other team, so you NEED to Steal the tasks. I hate doing it, and it's already caused some nasty arguments.

    To make matters worse, there are a few players that reserve a task and don't even get to it for over 8 HOURS!!! That's just plain selfish and not helpful to winning a Regatta as a TEAM!!!

    Think about it.... There are 12 spots for Tasks and you have a 25 person team, if 4 tasks get reserved, then that leaves just 8 Task spots for the other 21 people. AND, if those 4 reserved tasks are 135 pointers, the odds of any of the other 8 coming up as 135 pointers is slim...

    Reserving tasks is NOT a fair or helpful addition to this game.

    PLAYRIX MISSION - We bring joy to millions of people by creating high quality games.

    No Joy here with the addition of reservations......"

    I’ve established rules concerning task reservations and I have a time limit on how long something can be reserved. If either of these are broken, I simply unreserved the persons task if they don’t respond to being asked to remove the reservation. And since I promote all members to Elder to take advantage of reserving/dumping, I use the demotion to “member” status as a form of penalizing repeat offenders for the remainder of the current Regatta and for the next. It really works very well. I just advise not giving up all together on the reserve feature. I tried lots of different guidelines concerning reservations until we found something that worked well and keeps a good rotation of task with only 3 or 4 being reserved at one time. It can be done! But leadership has to be strict on the rules otherwise it will fall apart pretty fast. Lol! But I did at one point wish there was an on/off feature when we were still figuring this thing out too. Lol! Best of luck guys!
