48 hour booking rule
Hi All,

It's my first post here and I'm looking for help.

I'm currently finishing up my OCMJD project "URLyBird 1.3.2".
The instruction.html states "They take bookings only within 48 hours of the start of room occupancy".
The problem with this is, my db file has no rooms which meets this criteria and the user won't be able to book any rooms using the db I was provided with.

Should I implement this? Has anyone had the same problem? Has anyone passed the OCMJD without implementing the 48 hour rule?

Kind Regards,
Paul
I didn't implement this rule. It's not a must requirement, so you would not fail.
Cheers, that makes feel lot better as I don't see the logic in implementing it! It should really be something that the CSR should enforce if they choose to, not the application as it could seem as a limitation of the application (or annoyance) more than anything else.

e.g. Customer wants to book a room, the room won't be available for another 10 mins (due 48 hour rule), do they have to wait the 10 mins before they can book the room? Is there any leeway?

There seems to be too many open ended questions which could be associated with implementing this, so I think I'll leave it out, but I'll mention my reasons why in my choices.txt
Although I've read forums where people say they failed because they didn't implement it.

Do you have any examples? Because that would surprise me a lot. I didn't implement it (mentioned it in choices.txt) and passed with full marks.
Yup, here is one I was reading this morning:

That's a very, very old topic. I challenge you to find a similar one from 2008-2009 onwards

Hahaha, That's very true. I just thought it would be wise to ask the question and be sure.
I'll just go with not implementing and explaining my reasons why.

"Surely if they still wanted people to adhere to the 48 hour, they would've added some valid dates into our db's"

Cheers, Buddy!
I just ignored the 48-hours rule and I didn't even mention it in my choices.txt and I passed.
