Back when we started negotiating runs (Summer 2006) for the Sunday Linkshells, there were issues with zones. That winter I found an actual Dynamis website for all servers to have the Sunday Linkshells post and negotiate their schedules that winter because it was a lot of work to message everyone your schedule. I chose Dynamis Calendar.com and that worked great until the Admin took it down (this winter) due to lack of time to deal with it. A couple linkshell leaders from my ls and other linkshells told me of a new forum/site made to replace the old one so we are using that.
I did not want to put myself, nor any of the other linkshells leaders in a situation being an admin or moderator of a site when we have a difficult linkshell. Also, a site that is for all servers is more credible than a forum for a set group of linkshells when filing a complaint. I have a procedure I been told to follow when there are incidents with zones. I start with informing them that we are part of a group of negotiating linkshells. I then call a GM and then file a report through POL after the run.
I think it will be the sum of all complaints by the all the linkshell's working together to accurately report each incident of zone jacking/incidents and arguments that will make a difference. I will be interested myself to see what happens. As far as I know, every English speaking linkshell works together but one to peacefully work out zone issues. Either through Arasmas's forums or the ones we use that covers all servers. I have been too busy to follow a lot of things in game the past couple months, so the only incidents I know of have been the ones affecting Sunday linkshells.
The Sunday Linskhells have been negotiating so long, it is an easy, friendly process. If someone has a person who needs a city win, it is easy to find a ls doing the run who can take the member in ftw. If a linskhell needs to redo a weapons Iceland run, we have successfully be able to adjust the schedules so the ls could redo the run over the following weekend while their helpers were still fresh and eager to help. New linkshells often contact me to find out what days have the least dynamis shells running to plan their run dates and get on whatever scheduling process there is. The entire atmosphere of the Sunday runs has changed because we all work together and split things up fairly. We do not have 2 or 3 linkshells trying to get into the same zone at the same time any longer either.
The linkshell's using the Arasmas forums for all the other days do not need to post their schedule on the Server Forums unless they just want to list their run days and times in general so that new linkshells know how full each day of the week is. A link can be put on the Server Forums to Arasmas's site also. One benefit of Caitsith Dynamis Linkshell's posting their runs in general on these forums is when someone looking for a linkshell finds the Server Site and comes to me wondering what linkshell would be best for their rl schedule, I wont have to play match maker for dynamis/hnmls shells. Like if Monday and Friday or Tuesday only are the best times for them to attend dynamis runs.
I do appreciate all linkshell's working together to keep Sundays sane by negotiating schedules and I do appreciate new Dynamis linkshells who join in the scheduling.
