WHY? Why did I forfeited 3 games on time if it would supposed the clocks to be stoped for the Hollidays???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

4 games Because the clock-stop works, as already written, in the way that at a certain moment, maybe at 4 pm, 24 hours are added to any clock.

Could... you be more specific?

Where was that "already written"?

tulkos That`s my point!! In those three games, and I have the proofs, the system don`t add me 24 hours. An the system did that in 4th July, as it was announced and IN YOUR ZONE TIME. so? I still answer, WHY???

brunetti What does "a certain moment" mean to you?
brunetti 12 ( +1 | -1 )
I can't find the thread; it was already discussed, say 10 days ago.
"A certain moment": I mean, on a precise moment, on a given hour, say 4.00 pm.

:) This is why players should just move....don't watch the clock until the last hour...move when it's your turn!

onlyapawn I don`t need to move when it is my turn just because it`s my turn? THIS is postal or turned based chess, NOT Blitz. Ok?
Second, in the Homepage of GK there is a clock with the GK LOCAL, OFFICIAL ZONE TIME. It is obvious that if the clocks will be stoped the 4th July, they wll be stoped at 00:00 A.M. at 4th July. Ok?
And that was not the way GK did things with me.
For education, I will finish my remaining games and leave this site. It`s a matter of principles.

macheide Have you e-mailed Mike requesting an explanation? (If not, your reaction is premature, to say the least).
macheide 17 ( +1 | -1 )
philaretus Dear friend,

The first thing I did was e-mail Mike, but apparently for him the Hollydays effectively began at 00:00 A.M. Tanks for your advice, but my word is my word.

Best wishes.

:) I think the problem is, your assumption, that the time is added at 00:00am. Gameknot is a one man show and I believe Mike mentioned in another thread a different time. He is certainly not getting rich with this site and everyone, including Mike, deserves a day off. I see no reason that he or anyone should have to stay up until midnight on every American holiday, just to add 24 hours BONUS time to an already liberal time control.

Let me say once more..."If your time is running out, make your moves!"

When games are started there is a time control in place which you agreed to when you started/joined the games.

You are over reacting!! I'm sure that Mike will do everything in his power to help you with your "problem" but, I'm not sure that he should because of your attitude.

As Mike posted in another thread recently, "He is tired of players threatening to "leave" if they don't get what they want!"

I now wish you good-bye while I point out your leaving is your loss not ours.

onlyapawn Dear friend,

It seems that my english is so bad that you didn`t understand any single word that I writed above. We speak different lenguages.

I`m not asking for your help or compasion. By the way, Mike send me a very kind mail that I preciate.

My position is definitive. "Alea iacta est".

Best wishes to you too.

Macheide No voy a tratar de hacerte cambiar de opinion pero
es una lastima cuando alguien se va especialmente
personas que creen en cosas mejores.

Creo que hay que seguir nuestras ideas sin desvios, pero tambien a veces hay que saber seder. Solo digo que quiza esta pudiera ser una de ellas, pues Mike me parece una persona muy razonable , pero no exenta de errores , y siempre las relaciones interpersonales siendo muy complejas (incluso entre dos buenas personas) requiere de flexibilidad para maniobrar y permitir que estas relaciones crezcan y se beneficien unos de otros.

Dicho esto te deseo lo mejor sin importar tu decision.

por respeto a los demas voy a tratar de traducir lo que he dicho.

translation not to leave others out


im not gonna try to make u change your mind but its a pitty when someone leaves specialy when people who believe in better things.

I think one has to follow ones ideals whithout distractions , but also sometimes ones got to be able to conciede. Im only proosing that this could be one of these times since Mike seems to me a very reasonable person but not error free, and alwasy interpersonal relationships being so complex (even between to good people) require flexibility to manuever and allow these relations to grow and benefit one from another.

That said i wish you the best whithout any regards of your desicion.

regardz to anyone
