Timer paused even though I never paused it

My timer in one of my ongoing correspondence games is paused at 3 days and doesn’t go down, but I never paused it and the right-hand-side menu indicates that the game is not paused. Is there anything I can do on my end to fix this? Thanks!

That’s because your opponent is on vacation. The game will unpause when vacation is off.

Wait, @jlt .

Are you saying my opponent’s time is stopped too when I go on vacation? I usually try to make a move in all my games before I switch vacation on, and I have assumed until now that in this situation my opponent’s clock will run normally until they move. Is this not so – if not maybe there’s little point in scrambling to move in all games.


Yep, that is definitely so.

Any old OGSers recall if this is how vacation worked pre nova merge? Maybe my memory is faulty, but I thought only the vacationers clock paused back then.
