    Could there be a two year limit on games, at which point the days per move drops to one day and the timebank drops to, say, 3 days if greater than that? Pro's, con's, anyone? It is boring to have a conservative 21/21 game approaching 2 years old when the tournament is long over. I know I signed up for it, but still...

    Why worry, just move when its your turn. Its not like the game is impeding on the amount of games you can play.

    I think it would impede on my peace of mind.

    Even month-old games start to wear on me.

    Are you out for revenge because you lost the other game against this player to an annoying tactic? 😛

    If someone can't (or won't) access the internet every day to move it seems unfair to change the time limits half way through in a game they have toiled over for years. You know this - almost all your games are, or have been, Long Hauls!

    No revenge motive. No desire to change time rules during a game. What I'm suggesting will affect no game and change no one's need to access the internet every day, for TWO YEARS. Or they could change it to something like 3days /7days. If RHP doesn't think it's a good idea so be it.

    Don't be silly. For starters, 2 years in a 21-day game may only be 45 moves. You would have a better chance if you suggested this option after 200 moves or so.

    OK I see no movement in the direction I am suggesting and will withdraw it, except of course it lives on in the archives.
