    Well, n/a means "not applicable", so in the case of timebanks at RHP when you see n/a it means there is no timebank. So, keep an eye on the time out period.

    Thank you.
    There is no timebank.
    My opponent hasn't moved within the timeout.
    Have I won?
    How do I claim a win?

    Click on the little skull next to the game.

    If you and your opponent have not completed two moves each, the game does not count. Just delete it if your opponent isn't moving.

    I went on holiday for ten days and two of my opponents rather unsportingly timed me out and claimed a win. Another of my opponents has been on holiday for nearly a month. I have no intention of timing this person out, but there is no skull next to his name, and I don't understand why I was timed out! Surely if you are on holiday you are exempt from time outs?

    I still don't get what the time bank IS... can someone please explain it in Barney terms?

    If a game has a time-bank then it means that you can go over the normal number of "time out" days by as long as the time bank is before your opponent is able to claim the game for themselves.

    For example - If you set up a game with a 3 day time out and no timebank then you do not make a move for three days, your opponent could time you out and claim the win.

    But if you set up a three day game with a 7 day timebank then it would be 10 days in total before your opponent could claim the win.

    The time bank decreases with every moment that you are over the normal timout limit.

    I am playing chess with a older gentleman who is a beginner on computers. (He is over 80 but is a very good player!) However, he posted a message with a lot of extra stuff at the end (it must have been an accident) and as a result I can't see the board or move. Is there anything I can do about this? Thanks.

    I just found the site last night ,(joined this AM). I didn't get all the time bank stuff till this morning . How do I reset my time preferences for challenges from a week to 3 days ?
    PS - Time bank is a per game feature , not per player , right ?
