Could this not be done with the run at command? Post a file to the relevant server, after each signup and then setup intervals where the mxs script gets run?

Sure, make a script like this:

10minuterepeater.mxs:
#mxserverscript
at +1 exec reserve.mxs
at +600 exec 10minuterepeater.mxs

reserve.mxs:
#mxserverscript
unreserve all
reserve 123 456 789

Then make another script using perl/python/whatever which updates the reserve.mxs script. The only thing you need to be careful about is the update to reserve.mxs. You want to use an atomic operation to update it so the server never reads it in a partially updated state. So don't write directly to reserve.mxs, write to a temporary file and then rename that file to "reserve.mxs".

I didn't think recursive scripts were allowed. I remember trying to run a script that executed another script and it wouldn't let me.

You can't directly use "exec" but you can use "at" to schedule an exec command.

Bump. I'm down to make my server a seeded server if rf would like, maybe top 20 in each class in points or something

oh I like it! At some point I DO want to stray from the way the AMA does everything, and create some of our OWN rules.

Also I think if we did anything it would either just be giant reserve lists based on licenses, OR I would take say the top 20 in points from each class and have a seeded pro, seeded AM, then open pro open am servers.

I think RF should add a D-Class, so that more people get a chance to race. To qualify this week in C class you had to get less than a 59.1. I think the addition of a d-class will make it more fun for everyone and keep the beginners out of the faster servers.
