[Quote from: "mjgayle52"]
[Quote from: "Getrix"]I noticed that some would allow a double timeout in tournaments, and only claim time wins if someone else did. do we have a general consensus that we prefer first to allow the double time out?

I think there is a broad spectrum of beliefs and attitudes concerning claiming wins on time. The largest group probably claims wins on time when they observe that they have the option. Some may be counting down the minutes to pounce. Some may notice the person is logged on and give them an extra (??, 15 minutes, hour??). Others don't like to think about time at all and hope that the person will move. And a very small group get angry if you claim a win against them on time.

Actually my thought was concerning the group that gets angry on time claims. I decided to wait for everybody because some people will then say they are not legitimate wins, but then I lost track of time only to find that some claimed time on me. One person returned just in time and appreciated me waiting, but due to my generosity, I cannot win that tournament now. I would like to think that this occurrence has forever silenced that angry minority.

And of course, one expects one in return...




More appropriate emoticons spring to mind but, for some reason, they don't seem to be readily available on the site. 😇



Thematic emoticons? I foresee problems. How would one prevent the 1.f4 players from giving their opponents the Bird?

Maybe emoticons in this instance/thread/example perhaps appearing too disingenuous. Can we really deduce the thought as always being polite?
