Seriously though, there shouldn't be any 'limits' placed on how long you can be on vacation and there shouldn't be a prohibition on taking a T/O vs. someone ...[text shortened]... humble opinion on the matter. 🙂
Russ and Chris... keep up the great work!!! 😀😀😀
just my little opinion:
I like it 😉
I don't think that this would be too much work or too difficult (ther is nothing too dificult for Russ 😵 ).
And vacation status could also be called "out of timeout-status". That's it what is is.
And I'd play again someone who timed me out again: He had the right to do so and he used it. There is nothinmg wrong with that. It's the rules... If I don't want to be timed out, there are three ways to avoid this:
a) don't play correspondence chess
b) just take games with high enough timeouts
c) move fast
If I'm timed out I broke all these three rules 😳
okay, now about the CON's:
the site should stay simple. and all this adding-super-new-easy feature makes it more complicated and turns away from the big succes: CHESS. And timeoutvacationperiods have nothing to do with chess.
It would be nice to impove the existing feature "timeoutvacation" but I think this is not very important.
So far my opinion...
