    So I propose that the seven-day timeout rule be suspended for both players for all my games from Oct 13 - Oct 20.
    Reminder to all participants of Kevin Bonham's explained absence.

    Ah oops... well, that's a relief - I thought one of my games with him was forgotten about since it was on the second page of games. I've deleted my *bump* message. (:

    I tried to move in all my games as close to when I went away as I could, but I was procrastinating about that one because my position is so dreadful.

    Anyway I am back on board now and while a bit too tired this evening for anything except messing about, I will be getting back into my games from tomorrow.

    Sometimes I will use up the full seven days on a given move anyway, if the position is really critical.

    Just letting opponents know I'll be offline and not moving in my games this weekend - there is some chance I will move in some on Sunday or Monday night but barring that it could be Tuesday before I make any more moves.

    Comment re situation at the end of ggrayggray - justaknight:

    The matter that I was asked to rule on is clearly moot as Black has resigned, which ends the game. I am therefore not giving a ruling on whether justaknight actually played 31...a5 as it is academic to the outcome and there is no evidence that justaknight cares whether the record shows the move as being played.

    However, for the record, I think we need to clarify what happens when an opponent has only one legal move for the future.

    In my view if a player wants to make a move, note that their opponent has only one legal reply, and then state their reply to that reply, they should do so in a conditional-move-like format, eg:

    "If *blah* (only legal move) then *bleh*"

    or "After *blah* then *bleh*"

    rather than just listing the move as if already made.

    My reasons for this suggestion are:

    1. The increased potential for confusion (of course that confusion is the fault of the reader but it is nonetheless best to reduce the risk of it happening) when two moves are made at the same time without an explicit alert to this happening.

    2. The possibility that instead of just making the specific move and awaiting a reply, the opponent might instead wish to (i) resign without making that move or (ii) make that move and offer a draw at that time.

    3. The possibility that the opponent would like to take a certain amount of time to play the forced move (as they can when accepting a conditional) as a way of manipulating what seven days are covered by their window for making their next move should the opponent reply quickly.

    I support this. I also add the element of appropriate behaviour. These are comments in general. I will now go and have a look at the game (thread) for the first time.

    I agree with Kevin's comments. I have quoted the draw part of his whole reply as it is the main reason I agree.

    Kevin vs Justaknight 1-0 Black resigns

    Due to White's superior position to which I can only juxtapose passive defensive moves with no hope for a draw, please accept my resignation. Good luck to Kevin for the rest of the tournament and thanks for the game!
    Cheers

    Of course if you guys want to continue on in a friendly game, but all means go ahead.

    Just keep the noise down while other competition games are still going
    Garvin

    In my post #59 I resigned.
    In my post #62 I confirmed my resignation.
    In the heading of my post #64 I clearly state "friendly".

    who exactly are you talking to (Sorry Gentlemen). If you are just talking to yourself please take it somewhere else.

    Cheers
    Garrett.

    Request for Time-Out

    Hi everyone

    My computer is crashing at home.

    Could I please have a one week timeout, starting now, to enable me to get it fixed ?

    cheers
    Garrett.

    **edit** - it may not take that long to get fixed.
