    In 3 days timeout ladder competition I challenged a player regularly: he has the white but has not yet started the game (3 or 4 days have passed from then). I can't cancel the game and it is said white has 3 days to move and seven days of timebank yet; what does it happen now?

    Ok, thanks, not a problem to wait; but I only expected to see his time going down

    it's a 'bug'... if a person hasn't made the first move you don't see his/her timebank depleting while in fact it is depleting 'behind the scenes'... rest assured, his/her clock is ticking

    Haha, if only I had known that! I once reisgned the game because he wouldn't move and challenged another player who was still playing on this site 😛
