If you don't like the limits they have s ...[text shortened]... ur time settings either maybe you need to send some messages back and forth and sort things out.
I know I can set the timeout/timebank settings of my choice when I create on open invite/challenge. I know I can delete a directly challenge if I don't like the terms of it (timeout/timebank) and message the person, etc. I did that today as a matter a fact. I've been clear in my profile what my limitations are in terms of timeout/timebank as well.
Let me be more specific.
Under My Settings, there is an option called My Challenge Settings, wherein I can set parameters to automatically reject direct challenges. These settings include maximum and minimum ratings, and minimum timeout days. So, if I will only accept challenges of 3 or more days timeout, I can set that to 3 and, I believe this is correct, a challenged of 1 day timeout would be automatically rejected. So, in effect, a challenge has to be of x days or more. What I'd like is a setting of maximum timeout so that I can basically say that the challenge has to x days or less. This would provide automatic feedback to the challenger and give the challenger an immediate chance to change his/her challenge if so desired.
