I've never started a thread before, so I hope this is a worthy topic not already covered elsewhere. With the recent addition of COTMs and after last month's experience with a time-consuming Deity game, I've noticed that I don't have time to submit all the games I want. Many others seem to be having the same experience. For me at least, the problem isn't the scenarios, but that my games take Forever to finish. I don't use utilities to speed things up and never tried to go fast. Maybe I should. So, before somebody else shelves a gotm they can't finish, wouldn't it be great to collect in one place everything a civver needs to know reduce their elapsed time? Strategies, programs, anything that works.
