KasperNymand: Hmm. That's interesting. Of course I've been a rook for over 10 years lol. And I do always see bishops IN fellowships. (But that is possibly because they were already in there when they had a higher membership, and may not be able to actually participate) Someone else may have to confirm if I have given you incorrect information. If so, I apologize.
Have you tried actually joining? (Instead of just viewing)
winterangels: Your subject says "Stairs", yet you talk about being kicked out of a Tournament. So, I'm not sure what your issue is exactly. On your profile, I see you are indeed in one set of stairs, and were not kicked out. As a Pawn, you are only allowed in one set of Stairs. So that seems to be fine.
You currently have 19 games going. As a pawn, your limit is 20. To join a tournament, as a pawn, you DO have to have a certain number of free slots. I honestly don't remember how many that is. (4 or 5? I would imagine if it's "Single Elimination" that one slot would be fine) But I bet someone else does recall the exact requirement, and will say so. If you do not have enough slots, you will indeed not be allowed to start the tournament.
winterangels: Someone might be able to help if you say which game it is. Your Finished Games tab in your profile only shows one game ending last night, and that was anti-reversi, and you actually did not win that game.
chessmate.home: An account can't be deleted, as there are games attached to the account, of course. (and all games can be looked back at, etc.). The best thing to do is just make the new account and stop using this one.
Carpe Diem: Without looking, I'm not even sure the help area has the correct answer. Fencer changed the vacation system, um, a year ago maybe? Or maybe longer. Time flies. Vacation time is now used hourly. So when your games get to the "time out" time, you aren't using a whole day. You could come online an hour after one of your games would have timed out, and see you have 34 days 23 hours of vacation left.
Now, as far the more technical aspects, I'm not positive of the smaller details of it. But yes, right now you actually have more than enough vacation time, because on Jan 1st, everyone's vacation time refills to whatever their membership entitles them to.
likewowman2cool: That's the one I was kind of thinking might help him a little, too.
I'm STILL hanging on to hope that someday one more option will be added. Move and Go to next flagged game
Where you can flag certain games. Prize tournament games might be something one might like to flag, for that option. Or if you have a lot of games, and you know of people who would like you to move fast with them, you could flag that game.
I can think of a few other good applications for that feature!
Iamon lyme: From the FAQ's : 3.1.2) I play a game with no time control and my opponent stopped moving, so it seems that the game will never finish. What can I do now?
If it is really clear that your opponent will not play the game anymore (for instance, he stopped logging in BrainKing 2 months ago), please send a message to the administrators and the game will be deleted. However, it is recommended to think twice before accepting a game invitation with no time limit and that's why a warning in bold red letters is displayed at the game invitation page, so you always play such a game at your own risk.
speachless: As someone else said, I think this is something new. As though the image recently disappeared. I haven't noticed it up until now. But I know I'll be looking more carefully on my few current plakato games.
happyjuggler0: I'm not positive. I tried your new code myself, and it still doesn't work. I wish I knew how to send you a message with some code that I KNOW works.. However, it "disappears" because the message tries to "use" the code, if that makes sense. I'm not html expert lol
Aganju: I'm not sure if there is an "automated" way to do it. (I doubt it, but could be wrong). However, if you make the purchase, with a note to Fencer about it, I have NO doubt he will make it work for you.
thisbeme: People should be responsible for themselves. Read things before you sign up. The site itself shouldn't have to babysit anyone and decide for them what they do. The site can only (and should only) stop you from doing what you can't do that would be against the terms of your membership level.
MadMonkey: I did a test tonight, and went through and only had 10 pawn games to move on, and they all came up, one right after other, using "move and go to next game with non paying member". Then, when they were done, it went to main page, as expected.
HOWEVER, I noticed that once I started then moving on my games, every time I submitted a move, it went to the next game with a rook (or whatever), instead of going to the Main Page. (I hadn't changed the default action).
So, I wonder if there's any connection.
So, what I found with "Move and go to next game with non paying member" 1. If it is from pawn game, and there is another pawn game it goes to another pawn game 2. If it is from a pawn game, and there is NOT another pawn game, it goes to Main page 3. If it is from a Rook game, and there is not a pawn game, it continues to just go to next rook games (or whatever level), without going back to Main Page.
I didn't get to test it, but I think #4 would be If it is from a Rook game, and there IS a pawn game, it would go to a pawn game, fine.
To me, all are as expected, except #3. To me it should go to the Main Page in that case, to be consistent.
MadMonkey: Could it be that happens when you are out of "non paying members " to move with? I haven't run into that problem yet, but I also haven't used that option as much as I usually do, lately. I've been pretty busy, so have been moving in order of time out most of the time.
