Vacations by number of days instead of number of vacations

In the current system, a maximum of 5 vacations are allowed; whilst this is, of course, better than none - it DOES lead to unfairness and difficulties.
For example, under the current system one person could get 50 days of vacation (using the maximum) whereas another (using the minimum lengths) could only get 5. Furthermore, if someone is away often for say, 3 days, they are at a disadvantage compared to someone who is away rarely but for a while.

So, I propose the following: instead of a maximum NUMBER of vacations, I propose a cap on the number of DAYS. This could either be the current 50 day max. or a lower limit such as 30 days.
This would mean that people who are frequently away for short times are not at a disadvantage for vacations and also, it means there will be less boots in games - something I'm sure all of us want.

Also, an option would be to have a maximum vacation that can be started (such as the 10 day max. now) so that people can't just stick it on for 50 days and annoy people by making them wait.

Finally, due to this system still meaning a limit on vacations - it means it cannot be abused as unlimited vacations could be, but it makes it better for people who use vacations fairly and correctly;and, furthermore - it rewards people for returning early.

    I agree this is a good idea. However, it’s a very low priority feature compared to many others on this forum, and it’s unlikely to happen in the near future.

        I agree with a slight modification - each vacation counts for a minimum number of days regardless of length.

        This is a major problem with Warlight, and i would love to see this happen.

        I feel that there should be a point with which the vacations reset. Maybe people get 20 or 30 days of vacation every year for example.
