    Related to the timebank issue for Open Invites that was just fixed; should Tournament time controls ever show 'full'?

    As I write this, game Game 3098021 shows:

    3 days per move. 14 days timebank.
    White has 3 days to move. (plus timebank)
    White has 14 days of timebank remaining.
    Black has 14 days of timebank remaining.

    I don't know exactly when this Round started (would be nice), but if one side is no longer playing, this game could take a really long time to finish...

    A way round this would be to start the clock running on the games the minute the tournaments start.

    It would at least allow the auto-timeout to kick in.

    Yes, that is exactly how I think it should work.

    And to show the dates that each round started.

    I would agree, how soon after a tournament is full does it usually start?
