Every now in then because i live in the country side my interent goes down for a short period of time no more then 10 minutes. However, im usually playing a game of chess while this happens and then get disconnected and it says trying to reconnect message.
Now i've seen quite a few games were people lagg out and it comes up with a message. " This person may have violated our play and fair policy " Something like that. Now i was wondering because this internet drop out thing happens to me, am i breaking the rules? It's not my fault and i don't want to get in trouble for it so thats why im asking you guys.
That's tough hon, im not too sure sorry. But someone will come along soon with the answer :)
The policy is designed to prevent people from disconnecting in losing positions just to be jerks and make the winner wait for the timeout.
Yeah but people might think im disconnecting on purpose when im not. :/
You read a lot of complaints on the forums from people with bad internet getting warnings from the server. (Almost as many complaints as from the dipsticks who disconnect on purpose :-) It seems to be unfair that you're going to get warned/acquire timeouts/incurr 5-min penalties for your net connection but until the site comes up with a better solution it seems like there's not much you can do.
