Right.  It shouldn't be, but it is.

I at least would be game for any change that reversed that.

I think that that has to be a first step - a chain of people who will step
in to do the admins job if he is not available.  Or maybe a rota.

Not having set deadlines is also an idea worth considering. How

I have no idea how that would work!!  But, I'd certainly consider anything.

My own idea for lowering the admin's workload is typically low-tech and
would not be received well by ...well, anyone other than me, I suspect.
It's this:  Get rid of the wiki.  play completely from the mailing lists.
Then all the admin has to do at the end of a turn is post a single mail as
he does now, plus another mail with the new ruleset.  Or keep the ruleset as
a google spreadsheet or something.  No, it's not pretty, but it's *much*
less work.
