This would be a great option, since I don't feel it is fair with all of
these T/O victories since the game can last easily over one year and
there is no way possible to predict your work/holiday schedules that far
Of course, the players should discuss the reason in advance with each
other, if possible. There is the possibility that one may become ill
and that person may not know anyone else who is active on this site.
I am mostly interested in the games where less than 10 moves have
been made and the positions are still even.
if the option was given to the player when they have the opportunity to
claim a victory, then the player could decide if it is fair to claim the
victory or not. This should not apply to any tournament games!
