I don't understand how the "vacation" setting works. I set my vacation days from 12-26 January. I had 5 open tournament games with 3-day/14 day time bank settings. I made moves in every game on the 11th before I left for vacation, and returned to find that I'd lost all 5 to time bank losses. ??? Did I do something wrong?

I have a problem with my vacation settings. I booked a vacation from March 5th to March 10th 2013, inclusive. I found I didn't need all those days and have been trying to cancel the last four. The notes say they can be cancelled just by clicking on them, and I'm sure I've been able to do this in the past. However, nothing happens this time when I click on them to cancel. It's too late to cancel 7th; is there any way I can cancel 8th-10th?
Originally posted by marioppIt is fair. One of the advantages of being a subscriber is the use of vacation as the individual member sees fit. The member may be on vacation (which really just means "immune from timeout losses" ) and move in no games, some games, or all games. It is their choice. Their clock is still running in the games including the time bank all the way down to zero. But if it reaches zero, there is no timeout (the dreaded skull icon) if the member is on vacation. Think of it as a member pays yearly dues to have vacation time they can use to give them breathing room at certain times in certain games.
...Can you tell me if that behaviour is fair and what to do?...
Originally posted by marioppWhen on vacation, their clock continues to run when it is their move in any game. If all of their time is used then their time bank will also start running down.
I´d like to ask how does vacations state really works. I have an opponent on vacations who I could see was / is playing other matches. After sending a message to him, he´s made a movement in ours.
I guess (let me know, please) that´s not ok and fair, cause acting that way his clock doesn´t advance, so his timebank remains the same.
Can you tell me if that behaviour is fair and what to do?
