Thanks for all of your ideas. I checked on when my vacation ended and it ended at midnight GMT on 04-16. My opponent made his last move at 16:04 GMT on 04-17. However, the game was a 3 day per move and I made a move at 01:00 GMT on 04-18. That is 9 hours after my opponents last move, we'll within the 3 day limit. When I put myself on vacation, I had 2 days left to move.
Do I have any recourse, since the loss lowered my rating quite a bit?
If you read the information on your "vacation settings" page, at the bottom left side it states: "Timebank will continue to deplete during a vacation." So if it's your turn to move, the clock will continue to run down and the timebank will then also run down.
The vacation setting only prevents someone from claiming a timeout win. It does not stop the clock.
