    My Settings -> My Vacation Settings.

    Uncheck the days you are not on vacation and click update.

    If the day that you asked vacation for already started you cannot uncheck it anymore.

    I have 2 games going where the other player has been on vacation from about May 8th to about May26th (when they made a move) and all of their time bank has depleted.
    Now in the last about 4 days they have started playing again - but still on vacation?
    Is this a time violation while playing under the vacation (flag)?

    No, they can move as much as they want when on vaccation. It is there simply to ensure that they do not get timed out whilst on holiday. If they get withdrawal symptonms whilst on holiday and move from say - an internet cafe then so be it.

    Thanks for your reply, however, I still think this is an abuse of the time limit under the vacation flag rule - and the flag should show a popup of the scheduled vacation time (from / to) - as I understand the vacation rule - anyone can be on vacation as long as they like and get a free ride for time used during a game and not have to worry about losing a game on time while playing under the vacation flag - anyway, just my opinion.

    Thanks again, virg144

    Many believe it as such. I personally believe that a touch more transparicy with start & finish dates available - if only to opponents - then it would feel fairer.
    If I was a non sub then I probably would not play against a sub for this reason of vaccation available. Having only 6 in progress is a problem without my opponents going on holiday.
