    This is not a complaint but just a suggestion. Having just been away from my PC for the first weekend in ages, I have returned to find that a tournament which I entered has started. And alas for me has also ended without me even making a move. I apprecite an email is sent advising the tournament has started, but away from my PC includes email. I find this slightly unfair as its not always possible to predict when a tournament might start. May I suggest that the timeout rules are not applied until a first move has been made. At least then everyone knows that the tournament has started and missing a move will be met with a forfeit of the game.

    Cool idea, and I find something quite disturbing about your avatar, can't put my finger on why it disturbs me though.

    Sort of enigmatic maybe?

    BTW Post above should say, ".. opening move has been made by both players."
