    The penalty is accessed immediately. Future penalties are separate. Thus if you opt out in Leg 2, for leg 2 you get -15 days. In Leg 3 and Leg 4 you add 2 days each. Thus your cummulative bonus would be -11 days since you were 2 weeks early.

    (And just to clarify, you do get penalized for the leg they actually are eliminated in if you opted out earlier... by survive I ment they are still active during that leg)

    Yield penalties are added after all others. If you aren't the leader after your penalty is added, then you won't get yielded by a leader yield.

    A fast forward that is won will basically counteract all prior penalties, but you would still be open to recieving it in the future if your team had still not been eliminated.

    Edited the rule above so its clearer on this regard.

    Richardson,...
    I am now scratching my head and wondering what's going to happen to the TV schedules due to something happening in Rome. I asked Lamutt about another major news item about a year or so ago, and the rule became:

    DBSTalk.Com - The DBSTalk Survivor: All-Stars Contest Official Rules of Play
    http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=22477

    9. In the event Survivor: All-Stars ends before its complete run on CBS (i.e. network cancellation), the DBSTalk.com Survivor: All-Stars Contest participants leading at the time of Survivor: All-Stars' end will be awarded the prizes.

    Should current world events lead CBS to pull Survivor: All-Stars from the current schedule for a limited period of time, the contest will be "put on hold" until such time as Survivor: All-Stars resumes on CBS. The DBSTalk Survivor: All-Stars Contest Coordinator shall be the sole judge of the definition of the term "limited".

    Should events outside of the DBSTalk.com Administrators' control cause DBSTalk.com to cease operations during the contest for a temporary time, the contest shall be put on hold until such time when DBSTalk.com becomes operational again. Any weeks missed will not be counted in the overall results, but the DBSTalk Contest Coordinator shall revise point awards and poll values to attempt to make up for points lost. Should events outside of DBSTalk.com control force the closure of DBSTalk.com permanently, the contest will end at that point, and the prizes shall be awarded to the current leaders at the time of the closure.

    I'd be surprised if anything was effected in prime time television. The east coast is 6 hours behind Vaticant time. With an 8pm airing, it would be 2am over there. Not much is going to happen at 2am. The funeral is on Friday, and the voting isn't going to take place until the 17th at the earliest and the 22nd at the latest. Voting is typically in the morning but can also be in the afternoon so I think that it is much more likely that morning shows would be preempted then prime time.
