    Can someone help me understand how the grouping works for tourneys. Im not trying to be funny but my group in the 17th Chess.com tourney 1000-1200 has me the lowest rated in my group at 1307 and the highest being around 1956. What am I missing? Sort of defeats the purpose of entering a 1000-1200 group?

    Any relevent info would be useful. 

    Much Appreciated

    I dont think so EleonchaM, one of the players in our group still has over 1 month of vacation time left.  Its ridiculous, vacation time should be limited to a total of 1 or 2 weeks maximum !  Not happy Chess.com :-/

    At last, after waiting six weeks for my opponent to move, he has finally timed out. In total, four members of this group timed out. Surely there must be a better way to control Vacation Time and Time-Outs?

    Remaining vacation times should all be ending soon.

    How do you take a vacation and how long can it be?

    i don't think there is time its either vacation or not no time limits. any paying member can create a tourny, you just have to find them they are a lot of work to manage though.

    Yeah, one day ones are too risky, same thing happend to me in one a while back.  I don't mind a 7 day vacation as we all have things come up but longer is not right, just don't join if you are about to go away. 

    The waiting till 71 hours of a 72 hour limit to make a move on purpose every time when the whole tourney is on hold for you is weak and childish.

    IF anyone reading this can start tournaments, a 2-3 day 7 day vacation max tourney would be pretty popular.

    yeah they exist i was in a "quick 50" tourny limit 50 players 1 day move no vaca it was nice but be careful i had a busy day just once where i was away and lost all my games dropped my rating 30 some points. i would like to see a 3 day no vaca out there but i haven't found one yet

    lulubelle6663 complained about people going on vacation yet she/he is the slowest player in the world.  She/he waits till the last minute to make a move, thinks it's helping their play, and thinks they are funny and slick doing it.  Next tournament, no vactions over a week, no 3 day move limit for me.  Are those out there?
