    I live in Thailand and I see 1Hr 20 mins etc etc left in a game, on MY clock.

    Is that time bank left applicable in time bank from a GMT server, US timed server or Timbuktu server?

    Is that time left applicable to my time left in my time zone, or the oppositon's time zone, or the GMT time zone?

    And where is the opposition really from, ignoring flags, in his time zone of real time - from where the time left actually is?

    Is my time, as seen, the same as his time left; the same as I see it, and vice versa?

    The timeout and timebank are not subject to timezones. A 3 day timeout is the same anywhere in the world as it represents time for the game and is not a reflection on time itself.

    The same time for timeout and timebank will be shown for both opponents.

    A discussion on the nature of time might be out of place in a chess help forum, don't you think?

    I agree.

    I think he should take it to Site Ideas and ask for a Questions Forum.

    There is a wee minor bug in the time zones thing.

    I set my computer back 2 days and found I had an extra 2 days allowance
    in all my games. Even the one day games.

    So out curiosity I set my computer forward 4 days and all these skulls appeared.

    I clecked them and scored a bucket of wins on timeout. Try it.

    I put it in Site Ideas initially. Some smart alec told me to bring it here. 😉

    Edit: I also see a flying pig going across my screen. 😀

    If you see a skull icon in your My Games page, just click it and the game is won by you.

    Subscribe. That's the only real solution. It's part of the grand evil scheme.
