    What does a timebank of n/a mean? Does that mean that there is no timebank, and so u can't be timed out or does it mean that the timebank is 0?

    That there is no time-bank. You still can be timed out though! 🙂

    well corrected there: showing my poor knowledge of the no-timebank style of play. I've never played a no timebank game since their introduction (and that's why I don't end up complaining about vaccations and timeouts: I use an appropriate timebank).

    Bla Bla, you fail to understand that keeping your vacation in mind with timebanks needs the creation of longer timebanks? Games can last months while the timeout is only 3 days. To calculate vacation into timebank you either need longer timebanks or less games.

    If everyone were to do that we'd either get huge timebank games running and slowing down the server more. Or people would take much less games wich can be a reason to stop subcribing (what's the use of being able to play more games if they will be timed out as soon as you go on vacation) wich ends in the site needing to shrink considerably.
