    We will be cleaning up our site game archives soon removing any incomplete games where one or both players are inactive for over a year. So if you want those skulls, we suggest you take them whilst you can.

    Can you get rid of this one for me? Game 6763978

    When I click on the icon it says "player banned, please wait". I've been waiting for years. Plural.

    That banned guy has 2 inactive games in progress, his other opponent has 2 inactive games in progress, and I'm sure if I tracked the other one I'd find some more. Has this "inactive games removal" ever been done before?

    I say do it!

    Thanks

    Both remaining games for ahmetaydin have now been resigned.

    And yes, we have cleared up inactive incomplete games before.

    Tnx

    Can I ask for some more drastic cleaning when the inactivity affects third parties, as in ladder games.

    see Game 7524048

    Automatic timeout as in tournaments would be preferrable.

    We just did a similar exercise on ladder games, removing inactives (and long term non-subs) and timing out stalled games. The numbers removed were fairly small though, so it will not result in any dramatic ladder reshuffles.

    I was awarded a win in Game 8180238 when my opponent was banned. Will rating points be given in this case?
