    Should I take such an 'order' seriously? The more so as I still have at least 11 hours for a move (and Timebank).

    Nope...the reminder can amount to little more than a 'constant' tool to play at their speed. If it's a gentle reminder that time is all but out, a different matter...thank them for doing so.

    There is an option that allows a 'move reminder' to be sent but that is not an 'order' to move. You can not be "ordered" to move.

    However, if you fail to move within the times you agreed to it could cost you the game eventually but first you would have to use up all of your time bank.

    Just play your own game and move when you're ready.

    To prevent this in future go to My Settings, My Email settings and untick the "Move Reminder" option.

    I second the other replies; and I'd like to add that I've always wished that the envelope only appeared when you've used up your normal time-out. Right now, it appears a full day earlier, which is a bit excessive in 3-day games. It isn't even because I get sent move reminders when my time isn't up; as the others said, I just ignore those. My main problem is that I myself only want to send a reminder when my opponent is running into his timebank, and as it is now, I can't rely on the presence of the envelope for that. I have to view the game itself to check whether that turn's time-out has been used up, or I risk sending the reminder when it's not necessary.
