    I have players challenge me and they have set the time bank to 7 days.I only want to play games of 1 day moves and 0 day timebank.How can I prevent a challenge except under those conditions?

    "My Settings"...."My Challenge Settings" allows you to set a minimum timeout, but that is the opposite of your problem. When building a "New Game" for the open invites, you can control both timeout and timebank levels. For games that show up in you inbox you can message your opponent what you want, delete the old game, and start anew with 1/0 limits.

    maybe this will help explain. My opponent time says they have 2 days 23 hrs and 52 minutes plus timebank to move. But below that it says they have 1 hr and 19 minutes of time bank left. My question is which is correct? to me it seems confusing can someone explain the difference in times?
    Thanks

    The first number (2 days...) is the time-out which is the time you have to make your next move and this resets to its original value with each move you make (1 day, 3 days, 7 days, etc). The second number (1 hour...) is the timebank. This is extra time IN ADDITION to your time-out that you can use as you see fit if you need more time than your time-out to think up a move. This amount does NOT reset and once it is gone, it is gone for good.

    If your timebank=0 and your time-out has expired, then your opponent can claim a win, commonly called "clicking a skull" for the icon that appears in your game list. Under "Help" above look at the FAQ for more info on this and other topics.

    Also meet me over in the Pooh forum for any other clarification.

    Is this the same for clan vs clan? Their time to move has been at 1hr & 19 minutes for 3 days.

    This game? Game 7094056

    Notice:
    >
    Time controls
    3 days per move. 7 days timebank.
    White has 1 day 21 hours and 44 minutes to move. (plus timebank)
    White has 1 hour and 19 minutes of timebank remaining.
    Black has 7 days of timebank remaining.
    >

    The timebank (7 days) only goes down after the 3 days per move has expired.

    The timebank only reduces after their current move reaches the 3-day mark. If they manage to move before the 3 days is up, the timebank could stay where it is until the end of the game.
