    If an opponent is timed out then maybe their rating shouldn't fall. This could stop some people sandbaging their ratings and also wouldn't cause the problems some players have expressed about playing a player with a really low rating (when their level is much higher).

    Would this be a feasiable idea?

    I had a game, not long ago, with the opponent having a rating far below mine. I had done a blunder and I was going to lose.
    If your idea of a new rule was applied I just quit playing, eventually having a time-out with no rating loss - instead having 30 points loss as todays rule.

    A time-out should render a loss, with rating loss and all.

    i see your point , i wasn't sure if the idea would have worked, was just wondering what people's reactions would have been.

    Thank you for imputing
