    I'm playing a game with a vacation flag. Is there a way to find out how long the vacation flag is set for?

    You could PM your opponent and ask.

    I also am looking a a vacation flag. But, this game is a one day timeout with no time bank. My opponent has timed out. So, if the clock starts again after vacation or when he wishes, does that mean I will immediately see a skull? In other words, when will the his skull be activated? I click them.

    Remember that whatever answer you get is not enforcible.

    And I would also recommend checking often as vacations can be cancelled easily.

    You will not see a skull as long as your opponent moves before his vacation period expires - that's the point of the vacation timeout immunity. If he's daft enough to let his vacation expire without moving, then you will see a skull straight away.

    Thanks, I'm 17 days and waiting on this vacation timer. I have no problems with vacations, just wish I knew how much longer. Is there a limit as to how many vacation days someone can take or is it unlimited?

    36 days in each calendar year.

    Subs can take a maximum of 36 vacation days a year.

    For all users, the 'year' is calculated as 1st Jan through till the 31st December - not from when they joined or started subscribing. In theory the longest continuous vacation is 72 days - November 26th through till February 5th.

    Currently there is no way to see how long another user has of vacation or when they are going to take it.

    I'd like to see at least how long the 'current' vacation period is for a vacationing user.

    For that to be of any real use, vacations would have to be non-cancellable.
    Which they are not at this time.

    since non-subs cannot add on games to take up the slack when opponents take long vacations, it is in RHP's interest to allow long vacations with little means of investigating an opponent's available vacation time. In frustration some un-subs will pay up in order to add games.

    Or they may just leave for another site.
