I think this policy should be changed. If I'm exempt from timeout while on vacation, my timebank should not deplete UNLESS I make a move whilest on vacation. I didn't make any moves while on vacation and lost most of my timebank in all of my games. Doesn't seem fair to me.
Yes, I must say that it's timebank more than the flag that I'd like to 'manage' really...how that would work is another matter however. Flag time on this site is actually quite miserly with other sites actively promoting 'buying flag time'...the more you pay the more flag you get, up to 90days !! Despite talk of folk wanting to adopt chess.com's vacation 'rules,' re:'move whilst on vacation and your flag falls,' they actually have a far more novel scheme of protecting the subscriber far far more than is ever required...try this 'abuse' of flag time that was offered to me recently..but hey, folk actually want to adopt this:
