    How is it possible that the person I am playing has been showing the vacation flag since the begining of the year meaning I can't time him out. Is he cheating? If so how do I report him?

    Are you sure kenneywallace has been on vacation ALL year? They moved in another game hours ago.

    There could be a bug going back to the introduction of the vacation system if this user has really been on vacation all year. Vacation can only last 36 days.

    So use site feedback if you really feel they have been on vacation "all year".

    Thats my point he has been moving everyday but the vacation sign has never lifted. Check his public games right back to January. I can't time him out!

    I still don't know what makes you think this user has been on vacation since January.

    We are allowed to move on vacation, it's not a problem... vacation can only last 36 days.

    What makes you think they've been ON VACATION since January?

    Again, moving on vacation is fine... and you'll get your win eventually if you are winning, and they have only a finite number of days they can spend on vacation.

    There is no way for me to know if they have been on vacation since January, how much time they have left, or how much time they have spent on vacation.

    Are you just speculating they've been vacationing for nearly 9 months now?

    P-

    I was also mistaken about when they last moved. That was 2 days ago, not hours ago. Oops.

    He hasn't been on vacation the whole time. If the vacation flag is on, it appears everywhere the name appears, and when it's off it doesn't appear at all, even if he's on vacation. It's only an indicator that you are unlikely to appear in any game at the moment.

    Vacations again:
    Is there any way of knowing how long your opponents who are on vacation, have 1) Booked a vacation for 2) How long they have left
    it seems a bit strange that there is no indication as to how long you will have to wait for a move.
    Thanks SuperMac
