    Last week I sent a move reminder to my opponent who was too busy to move until his timebank started being eaten up. Now my opponents timebank is down to hours and the move reminder thing popped yet again. Should I send the move reminder to him or just time him out?

    Perhaps I should send the move reminder one minute before timing him out then?

    Don't risk even 1 minute. Click that skull!

    On another thread I was talking about a player called MadKnight.

    I read some of his posts and he was wanting to 'skull' someone
    who had a vacation marker up - I thought you could not so that.

    Or were you allowed to do it in the past?

    Always take the skull - I would not sob if someone took mine.

    you are not allowed to time someone out, click a skull or skull someone if they have their vacation posted. I know this because I'm in 3 clan matches ...losing each one of them... with someone who has zero time bank but a vacation flag.

    You will see the vacation flag instead of a skull.

    I thought so but I wanted skull the vacation flag just
    because he is on vacation and I'm not.

    That is quite reasonable.

    Yeah. I'm jealous of people on a vacation.

    Why enter a tournament then go on vacation anyay?

    I say skull em, skull em all.

    Infact skulls should appear for other reasons.

    Anyone playing the London System.
    Castlers (wimps who castle)
    Piece developers
    Pawn promoters

    Especially pawn promoters. What's a matter. you cannot win
    with the pieces you have at the start of a game.
    You need an extra Queen? Huh!

    You won't catch me promoting pawns....
    ....I've usually none left by the time endgame comes around.

    These would make for some great odds games:

    "I promise not to castle this game"
    or
    "I promise not to move any of knights or bishops for ten moves"

    Much more interesting than the stronger player giving the other material odds.
