    First, let me state that I'm not agitated, not intending to flame anyone and have a bit of concern for what has actually happened to my potential opponent.

    I challenged a player in the three day ladder - in our created game, my opponent is white. He has not started the game, and looking at his profile, he has not moved since Nov 15, 09. He currently has games in progress, but all are in an expired time state.

    This kind of leaves me trapped in the ladder - I can not challenge another player until this game is completed, but this game's clock will not start until he moves.

    The ladder help page states, "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." I'm not sure what the criteria for "games in progress" and "inactive on site" are, but this situation would seem to fit the spirit of the rule in any case.

    Is there any way to get our game deleted so I can challenge someone else?

    Thanks

    the game was started Feb. 8th, so you get a timeout option Feb 20th. Just be patient. The time ticks even if you can't see it.

    If you have the 22 games waiting it means the tournament already started, you can not "get off" anymore. If you resign the games they count as loses. I think if you resign a game that is under 3 moves you do not lose any rating points. But its nicer if you would just play them ofcourse...
