    Is it possible to give more choices for the timeout and timebank settings?

    I agree with, Phlabibit. Why not have unlimited options?

    My main issue is that for timebank there's nothing between 0 days and 7 days. I like the idea of having a small timebank, in case something unexpected comes up. But I think seven days is too long. It's annoying to have to use one of your game slots to wait for a seven day timebank to run out.

    To have more timebank and timeout options. For example, the timebank can offer "0 days", "1 day", "2 days", "3 days", etc. up to "7 days" and after that the other options can stay as they are with "14 days", "21 days", etc. Or instead of a dropdown box with options, there can be a text box where you can type in any amount of days you want (likewise with the timeout).

    If there was a 3 day option, it would be handy for people who play 1/0 timebanks but are worried about weekends.
    But this has been mentioned almost as many times as recs so it doesn't seem likely to be coming any time soon.

    That's a good idea,I especially would rather have it so you could just type in whatever you wanted for both timeout and timebank.

    Well, I don't think we need to have 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 day timebanks, but a 3-day option would be nice...

    i'm playing with an opponent with a timebank of 21days. And the timeout is up already. is it possible to claim a win even if the timebank is still running?

    How about an "earned" time bank concept? For example, could start off with 3 days in a time bank and after making every 10 moves, one additional time bank day is earned.

    This would avoid the huge time bank for those who set up a game, make four to six moves, then disappear.
