Initial time

Hello, I would like to suggest that there is only 1 minute to do the first move on games like happens on IGS. Opponents often leave games when they don´t get black and having to wait 2 mins for cancelling a game the opponent wasnt playing in is ridiculous. Please do something to fix. Either faster timeout for the first move or no 2 min penalty for cancellation.


One minute for the first move is only acceptable if the blue time is also pared down to one minute. It’s inacceptable if black can play at anytime within 30 minutes and white has to answer within a minute. I get the impression that you rarely play White.

Also, you can simply let the game run out. If you have only played one move, the game will be anulled if you leave it.
