I just took a look on some of my long-running correspondence tournaments. In 2 of them the last pending games were “Paused”.
One of these games is on pause for 4 months, no stone played jet and the player which paused it isn’t around for month.
I asked the players in question to continue their games and will inform the tournament director if they don’t. But I wonder how many tournament games are unnoticed on pause.
I would like if the “Pause” is either not possible in correspondence tournaments or at least has some time limit.
