I played the following on FICS using the Babas interface:
My side showed a 48 second lag for him and my opponent walked away after I played .. b5. My question is why did it take -1:31 minutes before I got my win. It didn't claim time forfeit (autoflag was set) but that my opponent disconnected.
1) can't see the game
2) this ain't FICS
Still, interesting to find that Baba has an interface...
FICS was always having problems with lagging and flagging and stuff when i played on there
Just don't ask one of the toxic admins about it ... some will ban you for the slightest question about time discrepancies.
says alot that you're here asking about it, forget about simple questions on fics.
I never played on that site again after I had a run-in with some TD bozo.
