where do you draw a line on account sitting?

consider.
i have a tribe of 3 members, each in a completely separate time frame, i.e.
player 1 works from 12am to 8am then sleeps till 4pm then wakes up and plays the game,
P2 works from 8am to 4pm sleeps till 12am then plays.
P3 works 4pm to 12am,..... you get it.
(note all times are game times)
if each player sit's for the other two, although they can't trade they effectively are online 24hrs 7 days (give of take but there are ways to maintain the differences.

would it not be possible for anyone in a tribe that is about to log off for a prolonged period to leave instuctions on what a sitter should build in their abscence? and then return the favour, yet trade with others in the tribe. (say the tribe has 9 members and 3 similar cases as exampled.) trio one may trade with trio 2 and 3 and etc.

i like the idea of a sitter but it seems that the game and option may easily be abused.

well, you limit your possibilities quite a bit, because you can't trade or send troops in that time 24 hours thereafter. But besides that there is no limit.

you can't trade to anyone? or just between the "sitting" accounts?

Just between the sitting accounts of course. Or, to be exact, there is no interaction allowed between accounts that share an internet connection. If you are sitting for 2 accounts, no interaction between them is allowed either. If you have another player like your brother playing always on the same connection, he isn't allowed to trade with any of the sitted accounts either.

so in theory 3 people in a tribe of 10 could sit for each other and still trade with the other 7 members.
