    If you are on vacation can you still be timed out in tournament games?

    Thank you very much. I just subscribed and wasn't sure.

    FYI: all vacation times are figured on GMT - regardless of your timezone....so if you are cutting it down to the wire, remember to take that into consideration.

    Does the Vacation flag automatically turn off when you make a move? Or, do you have to de-select the switch? I see quite a few players with Vacation flags set, but are still actively moving pieces. Isn't that an oxymoron!?

    The flag stays up as long as you have booked.

    As it stands having a system whereby it automatically turns off after you move wouldn't work with the system implemented. You have to move before the flag is lost otherwise opponents would have a chance to take the skull.

    Also players don't only set vacation flags because they have no access whatsoever, some certainly use it for limited access periods where trying to keep up with a hundred 3/7 games (for example) could prove beyond them, or just to inform others of their relative lack of speed in replying.
