    Hi everybody, just wondering what I'm meant to do. My opponent in the one zero split green clubs was banned over a day ago now, but I cant claim any win by timeout against him as the skull is not there? How can i get my wins?

    I'm not sure I'm afraid, although it seems that the greenclubs wasn't playing fair (see various sieges and tournaments where he was unbelievably good). Might be one for site admin...

    you have to wait till time runs out, even though he is banned, before you see the skull to crack, got thrashed 4-0 in the past by him, i want my points back. lol

    I have two games with 21 days per move and 28 days timebank against the guy, I am guessing I will get no points for that... haha.
    Glad to see they finally dealt with this guy.

    there's just a picture of the banned player icon there instead of the skull, his rating hasnt gone down either so this must b the same for everyone whose waiting to crack his skull in the 1/0 tourney

    There will be no skull. Usually, all open games of a banned player are stalled until a certain point and then "automatically" (i.e. by a site admin I guess) resigned all at once; so not related to the time controls of your particular games. You will get the points for a win for each game, but usually (there were exceptions in the past) no rating points added. That is how I experienced it most of the times in the past.
