    Hi all, with the holiday season soon upon us all and family
    commitments and the like would the following be possible;
    to add a box near the 'resign' and 'offer draw'.. that asks the
    opponent for permission to extend the timeout period. The opponet
    can of course decline the request or opt for a menu like
    the 'upgrading pawn' page, with a selection of days.. ie.. 3, 7, 14 day
    extention.
    I for example will be spending a week in the frozen Finnish Forrest
    over Christmas and will get a lot of timeout results in my tournament
    and other games.. I am sure there are many people like that as well.

    Fear not, before long (it was meant to be tonight - but I got bogged
    down in a few bugs) -I will be releasing a new load of code on RHP
    which will include a vacation mode. It will not stop people timing you
    out, but it will request that they don't.

    I will also post to the home page asking people to be considerate
    over the Christmas period.

    Russ,
    If I am trying to T/O someone, how will I know that they used
    the "holiday/vacation" option?
    Will the message show?
    I will (try) honer all vacation/holiday notifications!!!!!

    Sincerely,

    Harri Eloranta / Luck

    Hi Russ, Morjens Harri,
    Great news about the holiday button. I have a million questions but I
    will be patient and wait until you have uploaded the new changes. BTW
    the new layout of the forum is a lot cleaner.. I haven't explored it yet
    but I really like the attention and ideas flowing through this forum.

    Harri, mä asun turussa, missä sä oot?

    A yellow diamond (with a tiny plane on it) will appear next to the
    game in 'your games'.

    If you choose to timeout, a warning box appears stressing that the
    person is set to vacation mode - advising you not to claim.

    I will be promoting the vacation mode when I update the homepage
    next.
