    Hi

    Just waiting on 23 games to finish then I can post a complete table
    and give a link for a download of 7122 RHP Championship game.

    Does anybody know what happens to games like this.

    Game 9040213

    Both players have timed out and neither has made a move since April.

    Also these two in Game 9040466 and Game 9040430
    Have both hoisted vacation flags. User 570577 has 6 games unfinished.

    What I was thinking of doing just to close down this chapter was to adjudicate
    the games and get it over with.

    But I can't because the game would still be in progress and that would
    just be like giving advice.

    I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

    It is kind of funny with timebank only tournaments. If you go on vacation early on it gives you no extra time since your timebank runs out anyway. It only helps near the end as there is no skull...
    There seems to be a real incentive here to use vacation time as a boost to give you extra time.

    It seems like vacations should't really apply to these sorts of tournaments.

    I want an auto-timeout option that works anywhere, anytime. Those who wish to be merciful can leave it off.

    auto time-out is a must - this site is full of time wasters holding up tournaments.
