I went to the beach for the wkend, came back sun. - 9/28 @ 14:00 to find that I lost because I didn't make a move on time! That's not even 48 hrs, what does every few days mean? and will I get a neg. hit on my account/rating?
It all depends on what timeout/ timebank you accepted when the game was started. It looks like a 24hr timeout with NO timebank and you didn't move for over 24hrs so yes your opponent can claim a timeout win on you . I don't know what your talking about when you say every few days? And yes you do get a loss, and it does look like there was enough moves made that it did affect your rating. You need to be very careful before you accept any games and always make sure what the timeout/timebank is for that game before you accept the game.
Timeout is the time you and your opponent have to move when it's your turn to move. Timebank is a reserve of time you have when you haven't moved within your timeout period.
I suggest to read the FAQ entirely. The link is the help link at the top of every RHP page.
