    When a Vacation is booked, how about the Timebank stopping as well?

    Why does the Timebank need to keep running?

    If your on Vacation I think all the clocks should pause.

    I'ts not practical in the present vacation system because it is then very easy to abuse the system. Say you have only a little time left and you are in verge to be timed out. If the ticking is stopped during your vacation then you can use the vacation system as a mean to avoid losing your game(s). You know that uyou can still make your moves during your vacation.

    Yeah but the people who abuse it will lose vacation days. So they only have a limited amount of time every year to do it.

    As a subscriber we have 36 vacation days a year to use as we see fit. 10% of the years days. I think this is a very generous amount.

    Yes, of course they are, it's not a secret.
    But the clocks are still ticking.
    There is no way to stop the clocks from ticking, yet.

    Why introduce a vacation flag for immunity from timeouts?
    There already was a vacation flag.
