Resurrecting this topic to ask a related question. I browsed around and didn't see an answer to this, so forgive me if this is a repeat or if the answer is obvious somewhere.
The other day, my opponent in a ladder game timed out:
Although the game is listed as a win for me and influenced my rating, it didn't move me up in the ladder. My understanding is that ladder policy is you get booted from the ladder if you time out a game, but is this supposed to mean that the game is, for purposes of the ladder, void, since you can't move up and take the place of someone who is no longer in the list?
I'm wondering if this it what is supposed to happen or if it is a bug.
