Yes, planned updates do have the added weight of the ticking clock, but leaving updates until 'all have posted' or otherwise unstated periods can run risks for the roleplay as well. Such as- having a single player delay an update due to not posting.
I give you that there is always some leeway to be had in any case- life has a wonderful habbit of throwing the proverbial wrench into the mix at the most convenient times. But at what length of time does the risk of losing the momentum of the story (and attention of your players) outweigh a single delinquent poster? The noted 'needs of the many' if I may quote from a certain pointy-eared greenblood.
It is not often that I get to play advocatus diaboli with you Reever... :p
