    I'll assume the arbiter agrees these timeouts have occurred and indicate them in the thread titles unless I hear otherwise by next time I'm on.

    I agree, just a bit busy to figure out how to change the title right now.

    You can't; mods can, not sure about premium users.

    CameronD has defaulted on time in both our games.

    Thanks to Garrett for our games.

    The rest of the tournament has been a joke.

    Yes thanks for the games Boris, congratulations on winning the tournament .

    I was happy to draw my game with black against you as at the time I thought I may have been able to win the white game.

    The rest of my games timed out today. Disappointing.

    I totally agree and it is especially shoddy form for CameronD having set himself up as organiser of the tournament to overstep on time in every single game, so early in the game, without notifying opponents of any problems, even though the time limit was ten days a move, and while being online in this time (including in the last few days).

    If you make a commitment to organise something you should make a better effort to remember what is going on and stick at it. Garvin has organised several of these now and I'm pretty sure he's never timed out once in any of his games. The odd timeout is excusable and could happen to the best of us but something like this is just ridiculous.

    I will take a lot of convincing to allow Cameron to run another CC tournament after this flop.
