    Initial Timebank n/a : is this meaning that there is no time limit to move ?

    move timeout is also set to 1 day ...

    The move timeout of 1 day means that you have 24 hours to move. If you had a timebank of three you would have three extra days to move. Whereas your timeout period resets itself everytime your opponent makes a move; your timebank runs out (keep in mind that you don't start to lose timebank time until your 24 hour timeout period has expired).

    I hope that helps.

    n/a is a funny one.

    I think it means your timebank is 0, so you can be timed out the second your timeout runs out. I don't know why it doesn't just say 0???

    does it stand for not availible.
    "old" games (a year ago) don't have the timebankfeature at all.

    No, it definately means 0.

    x9002243, you should constantly have a white clock next to that game when its your move. That clock comes up when u have 24 hours remaining b4 a timeout can be taken.

    n/a stands for not applicable

    A timebank wouldn't be applicable for any games or tournaments which started before timebanks were introduced!
