    It seems that I am able to delete a game which I can win by timeout when I manage archives. Can that be right?

    No. I better look at that ASAP. Please don't delete the game in question.

    Wasn't this a feature that was introduced on purpose? I seem to remember a request from someone asking to be able to delete a game rather than claim the win by timeout because that person didn't want to inflate his or her rating with timeout wins?

    Not unless it fits the normal delete condition - when it has just started. (May be this is the case here)

    Update: I just checked - archive or not, it just has to be under 3 moves. (Tournament games can never be deleted, nor can games that have finished)
