    I don't like this new vacation system. I, a non-subscriber can't even get a vacation without having to lose lots of my games on time. I liked the old one better with just clicking that button saying you were on vacation. Then again, it wouldn't protect me from move timeouts. Now that subscribers get to be on vacation without having to lose on time, it's like I've been double crossed. I should be able to book a vacation without having to lose on time and have the same rights as a subscriber like...Korch.

    I kind of agree. A lot of people have been calling for a 'time out' vacation option for some time. But I used to like being able to slap my vacation icon up when I was too busy to play, along with a message saying just that. And now that I'm a student, 36 days isn't going to cover it either.... Maybe an aditional "I've not scarpered, but I won't be moving for a while option, that didn't protect from timeout but did allow an explanation message, would help?

    that one reason why I'm hesitant to argue for another system. I play so few games at a time that I could pretty easily PM/in game message all my opponents and tell them why I wouldn't be moving for a while

    Put notice in your profile or PM opponents. Play games with solid time - say 3/14 or 7/3 ...

    Nonsubs, you have only lost a little yellow sign. Pay a minimal fee and life's good [here.]

    7/3???? The minimum timebank, (if there is one) is 7 days.
