But we can proceed now if you and Howard can accept those limitations without me being penalised.
    Are you going to make a move or what?

    Well yes the July AFK period doesn't bother me, I knew that before we started. But he's up to 2 weeks on the current move.

    Roger. I've sent him a PM.

    I'd like to call for an adjudication in my game with AC.

    I last moved on 29/5. AC has not moved for 16 days despite being active on the site most if not all days. Now has been banned from the site. Once he comes back from that one month ban he is potentially going to be away for another 6-8 weeks. I had been prepared to accept that provided that we would bang out a lot of moves before the absence. That didn't happen. I would probably have been willing to not call timeout during any ban period, if he had kept up a decent move rate while he could.

    Anyway the game is on move 9 and completely unremarkable position. I have no interest in waiting a period of two or more months waiting for a move. Whether the game is adjudicated in my favour or against me for abandoning, or drawn, or nulled, I have no interest in continuing.

    AC responded to my PM (referred to at #290) and he agreed to contact you regarding a personal circumstance which he explained in his PM to me and which he said would be resolved and he could play on, unfettered from 14th (yesterday).

    I don't know whether he contacted you but that is now irrelevant IMO. His site banning, coupled with his previous slow move rate, coupled again with his lack of contact with you to explain the delay is sufficient to award the game to you on forfeit.

    Sounds like an excuse anyway; he had been online and posting heaps during that period of inactivity in the game.

    I'm prepared to give the benefit of the doubt. For some people, it's easier to get online and dribble rubbish copiously with brain in neutral, whereas setting up (even getting access to) a board is more problematic and time-consuming.

    Setting up a board is as simple as:

    * quoting a post with the list of moves
    * changing the quote tags to pgn tags
    * pressing preview
    * pressing load game in interactive interface

    (Of course, you can't then move pieces around readily).

    This is trivially easy for most of us but given AC's little problem in the area of quoting I can understand it might present him with a problem.

    For the record, yes he PMed me on the 13th saying he would move on the 14th.
