Yes patience is a virtue. And then again, rules are rules. When someone breaks their agreement to make their moves in a timely manner they deserve to lose. Especially if they are avoiding games they are already losing.

Sure. But I think I recall in other threads previously that there were concerns this would be unfair on someone who, for example, has a 1/0 game and always makes their moves at the same time every day (for example after they get home from work). A one-hour outage would mean they can't make their move that day and would be at risk of being timed out.
I play allot of 1/0 games and it's all a matter of communication. I've played opponents who only have internet access at work Mon-Fri., and they can't move on the weekends. Once they let me know the situation, I'll give them as much time as they need. But if an opponent is losing, he dissappears on me without an explanation and what makes it worst is when they keep coming on-line playing other games, well.... that skull will be clicked with the quickness! It's as simple as that.
Originally posted by viknikbikmik is it necessary to give 24 hours for a loss of less than 120 minutes? hence is it 24 hours from the outage or 24 from the last movement of the timeout of the game?
yes, what if i was playing a 1/0 game and made just one move per day at the time the site was out, i come here to make my move, i can't. i'm not on the site until the same time the next day and i see that i've been timed out. if it wasn't for the outage i'd be fine, is that fair? not everyone can get to a computer all hours of the day.
Why does it seem like whenever Russ fixes something and bans timeouts for ONE FREAKIN' DAY everyone can't stop complaining?!? What if Russ never fixed anything?? Then this site would fall apart and you wouldn't have this site to play on. I've got a couple timeouts waiting for the mouse to click them, but I'm not complaining. We all ought to be happy that we have someone as dedicated as Russ to make sure that this site is ship-shape.
