Vacation : Time frozen !

Vacation : Time frozen !

Hello to all.

A major update : Clocks are now frozen during vacation. It's no more possible to play during this time. Please note you cannot cancel your vacation ! (but you can add days of leave)

This change should make harder vacation time (30 days per year) to use, and reduce the effect on the time controls.

Dear Thibault, I had an incident and had to be hospitalized immediately for three weeks. I don't want to go into closer details, but I just got back home a few days ago. As I logged in today I saw that most of my games are running out of time. Would it be possible to extend them? As it would be a shame to just let them end like that. Regards, Roger.

Special cases (health..) & server rules

Hello Roger !

I hope you are fine now...

I'm afraid that health problems have no reasonable solution, as many people expect from server rules to avoid human factor as much as possible...

A high rated player, also one of the very first registered player on FICGS had this problem too, and I did not find a solution to save his games. We both "resigned".

Anyway, I see that only your games in 1st WCH have been lost on time, and you have been replaced already in the tournament. Even if you are in the waiting list again, you probably couldn't play this WCH, cause several 1200 players are waiting already. Sorry about that :(

Best wishes.

Vacation : Update

Hello to all.

You may observe irregular clocks according to the new vacation rules during a while (some players may still have more time than "possible"), this is not a bug but a consequence of the change on 2006 august 1st) for players who took days leave, particularly in july.

Thanks, I hope I'll be fine for the future. By the way, is there a possibility yet to arrange games with a chosen player? Regards, Roger.

Bonsoir Thibault...

J'ai pris des vacances du 7 au mon temps s'écoule quand même et je suis même "out of time" dans l'une de mes parties...est ce normal ?

Thibault de Vassal    (2006-08-10 11:56:01)

Bonjour Samy.

Je confirme que le temps des parties ne s'écoule pas (un simple refresh le démontre)... Et je vois qu'il y a "zeitnot" en effet dans certaines parties. La partie perdue au temps l'a été visiblement juste avant que ces vacances soient prises (et sera adjugée automatiquement)... Désolé, la cadence rapide n'est pas si facile à tenir, je le constate moi même.

Samy Ould Ahmed    (2006-08-10 12:54:08)
Je suis sur...

Qu'il y a eu un bug concernant mes parties, je me connecte plus de 3 fois par jours et juste avant de me mettre en vacances j'avait encore 6 jours dans ma partie perdue au temps et 11 jours dans celle ou il me reste maintenant 1 journée, je me suis mis en vacances differée d'une journée le 6/08. Je joue sur IECG des cadences bien plus serrées (10+1) sans jamais perdre au temps...mais bon ce n'est pas grave.

Vacances, bug d'aout

Ok, il a pu s'agir effectivement d'un cas extrême. Il y a eu un bug d'affichage après le gros changement du au gel des pendules. Celle ci sont restées exactes, en tout cas non inférieures à la réalité après les jours ajoutés par l'ancienne formule, mais cela a pu mettre certains joueurs ayant pris des vacances (cas présent) en confusion sur la gestion du temps à un mauvais moment. Pour ce cas exceptionnel je rends une journée à la pendule.
