Originally posted by padgerI don't see how the information can be used in any particular way to manipulate a game. The "power" for manipulation rests with the vacationer. That is, the vacationer can book extra time, fully intending to return early. The effect would be to have the other player(s) relax and not watch the game as closely. The other players could relax on the time outs for their own game, which could place them under time pressure. But those are stretches, as the game comes up for a move anyway, regardless. It's just the idea of having some clue as to when the player might return. I'm not even suggesting that we should know how many total V days the player has already consumed. I'm only suggesting that the booked V period is revealed, or, really, just a booked return to play date. It's so easy to do and I just don't see a reason why it wouldn't be posted.
Could you use this information to rundown timebanks ?
Originally posted by coquetteThe return date is meaningless whilst ever moving while the flag is up is allowed, and I think it should be.
This is about the 10th go around for this
Why isn't the booking for the vacation shown? There is absolutely no reason not to show the anticipated date of return. You can't count on it. The player can decide to return early.
It would be nice to know, however, that a player has booked one or two or ten more days for the vacation. That it's not revealed is just a little annoying.

moving should be allowed for the sake fof Speed, however where is the Problem in displaying the date?

A players vacation time could end on say July 7th and if he has a mind to he could book a new vacation from that date.
The reality is that all vacation time does is protect against timeouts.
I am going away soon but will be back before any of my games timeout so there's no point in booking vacation days ev ...[text shortened]... opponent returns from vacation(actual or tactical).The only relevant thing is when he moves.

your own non-interest doesn't have to apply to everyone to make it worth considering
I would like the feature. i'm not alone. I just don't see any reason for not making the information available.
On every point, you are right. knowing the book ...[text shortened]... . I don't make a case for disposing of them. If others want to view those sources, let them
