How do you know if the person timed his opponent out 1 minute after the time ran out - even though the opponent was clearly winning?
How would you know whatever the reason was?
You would have to have each one explained for it to indicate a ...[text shortened]... all.
There may be more sense to showing how many games a player had lost by timeouts.
Hmm. I disagree -- a timeout is a timeout, regardless of the reason why it's taken. I wouldn't need to know why Person X claims them. All I need to know is that they are claimed.
I would know, if there were a high number of them, that I should make sure that I wasn't screwing around on time. I would also want my opponents to know the same with respect to me.
In the end, I was posing the question from the hypothetical standpoint of someone who sometimes runs out of timebank. I'll admit that I am not that person; I have never been timed out. I was trying to think about what a hypothetical opponent might find useful in choosing a game with someone he or she doesn't know.
I'm fine without it, of course, as I experience no remorse whatsoever when clicking skulls.
