    Are time wins automatic in OTB tournaments? Or do they still need to be claimed? (Rhetorical question).

    Wins on time need to be claimed. If you are not looking for a rule change, then you need to go with that. (Some sites out there do have automatic time losses after a given period to stop delays in tournaments and the like).
    I think the issue for Russ is that unclaimed timeouts clutter up his server by wasting memory. I don't see any issue for the players. I let two games go on for about a year before timing them out, just to be sure the other player had not made any other moves at RHP.

    I'm in a game that was started 2 years and a week today. My opponent has a tendency to travel a lot and moves somewhat infrequently but then he is, after all, Irish and they are known for their lackadaisical attitudes/ways. 🤔 😲 😉

    Unfinished games are periodically cleaned up. (deleted) If a player is inactive, and their opponent isn't inclined to take the timeout, it is a candidate for being removed.

    OK, now that makes perfect sense. My opponent and I are in contact in PMs and other ways.

    Thanks, just reminded me to check and see if I have any skulls to take! 😉

    It would be good for you to get a few wins.

    As a general rule, I tend not to gloat about time wins.
