    I'm sorry that I'm taking so long finishing my games.  Out of my group of 6, 2 accounts have already been closed (for cheating i assume).  One of the remaining players drew one of the cheating accounts in both games.  I don't know if this is accurate but I input one of the draws to chesszen.com which estimates elo and they both rated over 2700. 

    So I can only think that 2 of my remaining 4 games is against a cheater, and he would probably advance should I even draw my games with him or lose any.  I'm going to contact chess.com and see if they'll do anything while I finish my 2 remaining games not counting those 2.

    Well, it starts when all games are over. Since one person is still on vacation with 1.5 months left and no move played yet on any of his games, I would say that it can still take a good while.

    Yeah, I wasn't trying to blame him for "being on vacation". Just frustration that it takes so long.

    @ TimZo ... jpramirez last login was on "Last Login: Sep 1, 2013", so he may be genuinely on leave

    Oh great. jpramirez (group 19) has 1.5 months of vacation time left. No moves played in his games either...

    In my group (group #21) interestingly, a lowest rated player who entered group is going to qualify ! ... DruSean entered group at 1399.

    What a coincidence. I wrote my previous 2 messages 5 days ago. Showing how anti-social his behaviour is. Now guess when his last log-in was...yep, 5 days ago. He must have read it and then left. Maybe taking one of my comments as an inspiration and is now playing Blitz-/Bullet-games on another site. Just pitiful behaviour.

    About 18-19 days of vacation left on his account.

    I could (kinda) understand that if they had over 200 games ongoing, because of the vacation-rule. The rule says you cannot go on vacation if it is your turn on any of those games. But L2Gt has 21 games ongoing.

    Problem also is that both are paying members (diamond even), and if they punish those, they might risk their membership, and besides all that paying-stuff, it could encourage people to play on another site, while on vacation here, if playing live-chess gets punished.

    You see the dilemma the staff is in? Sadly this is a business for them, so I doubt to see any timeouts soon. Morally wrong, but when was the last time you saw something morally-correct done by a business?

    I also feel such a thing should not be allowed by the authorities... Its fine if a person is actually on vacation and is not coming online at all, but if a person is continuously playing live chess and keeping his opponents waiting on in the online mode, it doesn't make sense... Such people should be timed out so that they learn their lessons!!!

    So only the 2 games of L2Gt left, and still about 24 days of vacation left.

    Strangely he played over 300 games on live chess, while on vacation, letting all his opponents and tournament-participants wait. Is that vacation abuse and can be reported?

    coolkid86 did the same. Over 1.5 months of waiting, while playing tons of games. His vacation ended, he let his time run out while still playing live chess.

    Really poor sportsmanship from both, and L2Gt's still continues...

    2 games by L2GT, 1 month left !!.

    13 games left, actually ONE is being played and that shouldn't take much longer: http://www.chess.com/echess/game?id=72247461

    The other 12 games are on hold because of vacation
    8 games by coolkid86, 7.5 days left
    2 games by L2GT, 1 month left
    1 game by Peter_Oomen, almost 8 days left
    1 game by tamulavage, 7 days left

    Coolkid 86 is in the group 85 and all people don´t can play in all the summer because he was his vacations in other time. 760 players are bored for you.

    This is my first tournament here and i have to say if i knew about that "vacation" stuff, i would never participate.

  • 15 months ago

    My bet is on 2 months. Someone's vacation ended yesterday, 6 hours after I posted, but now 31 games are involved. That means someone new went to vacation.

    Now 31 games of the remaining 54 are in vacation. I think the shortest vacation I saw was 6 days and 3 people over a month.

    probably we need wait 1 more month
