    There's a way to know how many days are left in my opponent vacation flag?
    Obviously I'm playing someone who moves everyday but always with the VF up to avoid timeouts and after a couple of months I'm getting sick about it...........

    (the old way was waaaay better..........)

    As far as I know only person who knows that is the holiday taker.


    My suggestion is: subscribe and have your own 36 days time-out free time per year. You also get unlimited concurrent games...

    And as a long time subscriber you ask a question about vacation flags? This topic has been beaten to death over and over again in the forums. The V flag is a device intended to drive non-subs crazy.

    Many people don't bother with the forums, not everyone always knows what is going on, myself included.

    My [BETTER] suggestion is to avoid playing subscribers unless you know you can trust them to play fairly. [ie, without using the mongin vacation system]
    Worked for me in the past.

    Using our right to take vacation days when we need them is unfair? Interesting viewpoint.

    It IS an advantage to be able to extend your timebank when your opponents timebank is fixed, surely.
    The only sure way to avoid it, is to avoid the users of the system.

    Dear coquette (uh, what an appropriate username..) as someone wrote, I didn't bothered much with forums in the last year and I never used the Vacation Flag so I asked here (oddly enough, this forum is called Help forum)

    I don't know when this system was implemented, I used to know that there was no immunity from timeouts with the old VF and didn't know the 36 days thing.

    sorry if I bothered you so much, I hope you still slept after this so annoyning question.

    The vacation flag was already silly when people used to put it on for weekends because they couldn't play from work, if possible now it's become even more silly.

    Now I know that all I have to do is waiting for the unfair guy to end his days of immunity, thanks folks, that's all.
