Originally posted by Trev33sorry trev33, took your advice, and still feel the same way ... on the site ideas forum, it was page 5 where the first reference to any thread (at least based on title) could even be found, and it was closed ... and it dealt with the number of vacation days, not exactly what i was talking about here .. page 6 of your "reccomendation" brings two more threads, neither about publishing end dates of vacation, although one of them had a comment similar to mine, but in any event, both closed ... so, sorry, not going on to page 8 or nine, like i said, havent found any open threads on the topic, and as to your other point, i didnt see a lot of support for things just the way they are on these three closed threads ... any other suggestions?
Look in the site ideas forum, you'll find many threads on the topic. Most detailing why it's fine the way it is.
Originally posted by Kewpiethe abuse of moving on vacation and how to control it is a topic in of itself ... i am talking about something much simpler here ... simply publishing the expected end date of the vacation ... thats all ... abuse or no abuse, at least opponents will know, subject to change, when is the latest they might look for either a move, or a skull ...
Chess.com shows the number of vacation days left. Unfortunately, it isn't helpful. Theirs also has a function whereby you can't make moves if you are on vacation, unless you temporarily turn the vacation off.

and i see no practical reason that a vacationing player somehow has a right for this info to remain a mystery to everyone he plays, and more appropriately, i see no reason for the site NOT to publish this info, if for no other reason as a simple courtesy to the vacationing player's chessmates ...
Originally posted by gezzaWell, there are many reasons why this site doesn't share your personal details with other users. That may be one of them. If you know who doug89 is IRL, that's his own doing, not the site's, and he could have avoided that.
- privacy/security - e.g I know who doug89 is in real life - I will rob his house while he is away. Surely it must be a user's choice to have the information available or not.
Originally posted by doug989What is more irrititating, a player who moves once every days in a 7 day per move game or a player who goes on vacation but moves every 2nd day?
I couldnt find an open thread on the topic, though that might be my inexperiece on searching for them, but i too am irritated by players who fly the vacation flag, especially in tourneys, then move move move on all their games but the ones they are loosing in ... i get the thing about waiting it out, but up to 36 days is a long time ... and many times, many ...[text shortened]... hat the end date to a vacation should not be published, just as time out info is published ...
