Identify Individuals Who Frequently Turn-Back Assignments by Cooperation with Other Assignors to Eliminate Cherry-Picking
If an official refuses an assignment -- from you or another LeagueGM assignor -- his availability to all organizations for the duration of the assignment is locked as UNAVAILABLE.
The official is warned of this lockout at the time he refuses the assignment. The official therefore has the incentive to accept the assignment, rather than take it "for now" and dump it if a better assignment comes along.
As a LeagueGM assignor, you can over-ride this lockout and assign anyway, but other LeagueGM assignors using the official that day are able to see the sequence of assigning events, with timestamping of who did what and when they did it.
The intent of this functionality is to encourage the official to provide prompt and accurate availability. And accept all assignments given in good faith, so assignors do not waste time managing turned-back assignments.
Each time an official refuses or turns-back an assignment, it is counted in a statistic visible to any LeagueGM assignor using the official. Every LeagueGM official realizes it is important to keep his refusal and turn-back statistics as low as possible, so that assignors perceive him as a reliable person.
