    I took a brief (3 or 4 month) hiatus from the site.

    I just checked the 3-day ladder to see my position and maybe make a challenge. Says I'm not in the ladder.

    Kind of frustrating - I had worked my way about half way up over the years.

    Any idea why I got dropped? I still show as a subscriber and never let my membership lapse.

    Thanks.

    From the ladder help page :

    Inactive players

    Inactive players will be removed from a ladder if they have no games in progress and they have been inactive on the site for 60 days

    DRAT!

    That negated a lot of work over a lot of years.

    A warning via email or something might have been thoughtful.

    Oh well, life goes on...

    I understand the frustration. But normally when people leave for > 60 days, they are gone for good though. In fact, this is the first time anyone has ever queried it.

    Any chance of a reprieve?

    Pretty please?
