    I suggest automatic time out.
    Now it is either "semi-automatic" on some types of tournaments or it entirely depends on the will of other player.

    I think, that sculling places a tremendous guilt on the shoulders of the "executioner".

    Speak for yourself...crunching skulls fills my heart with joy.

    it should be automatic for Tourney and Clan games, and a personal decision for Friendly,s (Open Invites).

    I think it's "semi automatic" as you call it in all tournaments.
    It's just the time scale that varies.
    I think it should be automatic in all games but only after a standard set "grace" period - say 5 days.
    Up to the end of the 5 days you should still be able to take the skull if you wish.

    Automating all games would spoil Ponderable's fun - he enjoys making a skull collection.

    Though he does crunch skulls regularly in Clan dn Tournament games. And does with some hesitation at Welcome games.

    I think Russ has bigger issues on this site.

    As someone who has worked in business analysis and IT development, a suggestion like this will only end up in the trash folder.

    Nothing personal.

    Just keep a close watch on your games. It is just that simple!!!!
