If I am in live AST tournaments, is it rude to do a few correspondence moves before they show up? I am disconnecting, but only because they aren’t in the game. I shouldn’t be required to be in the game if they aren’t either.
My other question, Is it rude to pause and resume a game at the beginning if I am white and they haven’t showed up yet(still AST)? I don’t get a timer like that for my first move, and I believe in that instance, the time that it takes for them to decide to go to the game should be taken away from there total, instead of them taking 2 minutes or so to show up with no penalty(this is coming from an impatient person). I would understand and be fine with it if someone did it to me, but I don’t want to be that person that everyone is annoyed with for something like that.
A mod could decide if this fits better in the thread involving disconnection or the abolish the blue starter clock thread. I didn’t know where to put it.
