    I have looked but have not seen a way to do this. I am currently on vacation but no longer wish to have the flag up. Any ideas?

    Go into the vacation booking page again and click on the interval booked. What happens?

    I think you can unbook a vacation while under vacation. But exatly how, you have to experiment.

    I appreciate the response, but I had already tried that and it does not work.

    I'm pretty sure that once your vacation period has started, that you can't change it.

    This is correct, Fabian doesn't know what he's talking about. The key is to book short vacation periods one after another so you can cancel later ones if you need to. I have my 36 days booked in one day sections starting in 1 week at all times. If I get hit by a bus you're all waiting a long time to time me out.

    No, I didn't know what I was talking about, but I'm still friendly.
    I have once deleted a vacation period in the proposed way, but that vacation wasn't started and I don't know why there should be a difference.

    You could abuse the system if 'current' holidays could be deleted.
    If one had a few games that are coming up for timeout, then by setting oneself on vacation it would buy a bit of time in which to move. Then one could delete the vacation after moving, leaving oneself a full-quota of holiday to take.

    That's why the restriction is there on vacation periods that have started.

    How would the site deal with someone deleting a one day vacation halfway through that day?
