Laws of
Chess  rate,
timelimit, vacation
1.
Your time limit is 10 moves in either 1 (Blitz), 10, 20, 30 or 40 days,
as you choose. The days you save will be credited. 1 day of rate is 24
hours, starting with your opponent's last move.
2.
If a player needs more than 10 days rate, he has to inform his opponent
on time, i.e. at the latest 1 day before the time limit is over. (To
inform your opponent that you will need more than 10 days to make your
next move, just click ">10 days".)
If you do so, you will be reminded (see 3.) after 26 days. If a player
does not inform his opponent, he automatically loses 5 days of rate. (The
display "(TL:5d=...d)"
will appear in the game manager.)
3.
If a player has not made his move within 16 days, he will automatically
receive a reminder. This reminder contains the notation of the opponent's
last move and another request to make the next move (The display "move
reminded!" will appear in the game manager.).
4.
The time limit is exceeded if more than 30 days were needed to make 10
or less moves, 60 days for 20 moves, 90 days for 30 moves etc; if the
time limit you have chosen is 10 moves in 1, 10, 20 or 40 days, this rule
applies accordingly.
5.
The first exceeding of the time limit automatically entails the loss of
the game.
6.
Each competitor may claim up to a total of 42 days leave during each calendar
year. (You can organise your leave under "my user data".) Leave
can only be taken for all current games at once and should be at least
7 days in succession. All rates and time limits are stopped during the
leave. However, if the opponent is the next to make his move, his rate
continues until he has made his move.
7.
A player's holidays automatically are ended if he makes a move before
the original end of his holidays. This is valid for all his current games;
the last day of his holidays will be the day before he made his move.(?)
8.
All opponents in current games will automatically be informed via email
about when and for how long a player is going to be on holiday.
