Addie and OdoOne are playing each other in the vice-Admins Birthday Tournament 2018 but their dashboard show no games currently being played. Ageling and Tinko2020 need to play their next match.

Am I correct in thinking that OdoOne will be removed next week anyway?

 Yotta (997)    2 Dec 2018 15:02:13

Yes, any player who made no moves for 3 monts straight is removed from the rankings until they do.

Addie and OdoOne should be playing each other in the vice-Admins Birthday Tournament 2018 but there are no such games being played.

 Yotta (997)    9 Dec 2018 07:42:56

Games are only shown once each player made at least one move. (hmmm...., I think we should change this to show games regardless of first moves).

So the games exist, it is just that neither Addie nor OdoOne made any moves yet. I will look into defaulting these games so that the tournament can proceed.

I think all tourney games should automatically end once games timeout. Speaking of timeouts perhaps we should all have the option to send reminders if game(s) timeout.

Being new here, I have been enjoying being in many games, but I timed out about 7 games that count as losses before I barely knew what I was doing re the specifics of how things operate here. For all I know, I might have lost them against those fine opponents anyway. At times I have unexpected very long workdays into long nights, and unless there's something more I'm not aware of, I have a hard time looking at my ledger of active games and trying to see which will time out soon, and which have plenty of time left. Hoping I won't have any more timeouts, I do think Ketchuplover's suggestion of option to send reminders is a good one, and I for one would appreciate that occurring if necessary.

Will bump up email reminders for timeouts and starting tournaments, on our development priority list.

 ketchuplover (1334)    10 Dec 2018 19:39:55

I think all games are arranged by remaining time. The email reminders would be optional and no guarantee your opponent's would send you one

 Irrawang (1241)    11 Dec 2018 04:05:20

Games appear to be arranged with the most recent move at top and the earliest move at the bottom. They'd be better arranged by remaining time.

We could also adopt a ‘time bank’. For each game there are a set number of bank days, e.g. 1 day game plus 3 bank days; 5 day game plus 2 bank days. So if a player in a 1 day game goes over time he draws (for example) 12 hours from his bank leaving 2.5 days in the bank (for that game only). This would be useful for genuine players who try hard to meet time requirements.

The older site had the time bank. Yotta can explain its absense in this version.

 Corvidae (1142)    11 Dec 2018 17:59:34

I was too young for the older site.

 Yotta (997)    13 Dec 2018 04:09:48

We removed the time bank because our primary goal with ChessConquest is to build a chess experience that is easy and fun. We found that the concept of timebanks was confusing for some players, and we argued that rather than starting games with a 1 day timeout, and a 2 day timebank... let's just start games with a 2 day timeout.

 Yotta (997)    13 Dec 2018 04:11:01

...it also simplified our coding in a big way, giving is more time and energy to spend on other important feature requests.

 Corvidae (1142)    13 Dec 2018 10:26:59

I don't like time banks either and I agree with your comments. I was trying to help the situation that a handful of players often find themselves in.

Otherwise the tournament can’t proceed.

 Yotta (997)    11 Feb 2019 03:19:43

Will look into this and default the games so that the tournament can progress.

 Yotta (997)    18 Feb 2019 18:35:06

I apologise for only getting back now on the issue mentioned in this thread.

Both Addie and OdoOne has been disqualified from the "Vice-Admins Birthday" tournament, and Ageling was automatically advanced to now play against Tinko2020.
