(I mean, what's the logic to let the clock continue to tick while on vacation, so that you will be out of any timebank when you return..)
I agree. But the system works that way, and not enough members agree.
I have an old propolsal about sealed moves, that when you set the vacation flags your opponent moves are sealed until you are back from the vacation and reset the flag. During the vacancy, the times dosn't tick at all for you.
The current vacation system gives you immunity for being timed out, nothing more, that's all. This could be used, quite profitable, in certain tournaments.
When I bring up the 'abuse' word, I'm tend to be flamed of people not agreeing with me, so I stay quiet this time.
However, I think that the vacation system seems to be a low priority matter by the staff of RHP. What we have, we have.
