    Hello
    I have 2 games that both have timed out, and I either am not looking in the right spot for the 'skull' button of it's not there. Can someone tell me where exactly to look or why its not there? I read the FAQ and I looked where it said it should be, but it's not there.
    Thanks

    Which games are it? I can't find any in your public games that seem to fit your description.

    Next to your game click "Info". This should tell you "Move Time Out" (time for each move) as well as "Initial Time Bank" (This is extra time each player has)

    You will also want to see if the person you are playing has an Vacation going on. If they do, you can't time them out. They would have a yellow icon with an airplane if they are on vacation.

    Perhaps this person doesn't realize a 1 day game is 1 day for each move? I forgot we could check game clocks now.

    You also have one game which yu should resign (mate in 1) and not hang out the gamer on a 7-day timebank.

    No advice to games in progress - perhaps one player doesn't see any suggested move.

    I believe chienlung is not a third party in that game.

    Oh - well in that case, no urging opponents to resign. Bad chess etiquette.

    So hanging out a lost game by refusing to move, despite a reminder, and waiting for the expiry of a timwbank to 'timeout' instead of resigning is good 'chess etiquette'? Clearly you do not know anymore about it than he does.

    So that entitles you to be an ignoramus does it - oh OK.



    Either way, I didn't say what he did was "good chess etiquette" - why does that have anything to do with it anyway? It doesn't!!!

    Just because someone else has bad chess etiquette does not mean you should reduce yourselves to their level.

    Have you ever thought that the person never received your move reminder? I have now turned mine off but before I just classed them as junk so they disappeared into a big black hole.

    Have you ever thought the person may prefer for you to checkmate them rather than resign?

    At the end of the day you will win the game so why worry too much?

    Also add the player to your "This player is a complete *wat and I do not want to play them again" list.
