Nothing bothers me more than someone that changes their mind about the dynamics of a game in the middle of play. If something was supposed to count two weeks ago, it should count now. That's just how I feel about it. What's the use of playing out the history for my character if it's not going to count as activity? Honestly. There's more to gameplay then forcing along storylines. There's evolution of the character and fleshing out of a background between characters who are supposed to have a history together.
