I have been using this site for some time, but am using this feature for the first time because I have a complaint to make. Some players leave the game after a few moves, purposely not logging off. The opponent has to wait 20 minutes for the timer to run out to win, or resign. I tried calling the moderator but the guy left without doing anything. I am seriously disappointed with the management.
Welcome to the forum.
What would you expect a moderator to do in this situation?
It’s delicate to interfere in a running game as long as the contract is respected (time setting agreed by both players).
Who knows if your opponent stayed 20mns trying to find a proper answer to your last move? Of course I would share that toxicity feeling, have doubts but then again, what could be done?
Maybe you can try shorter time settings to avoid waiting too long?
Frankly, I find this a bit strong wording. This platform is mostly free, and as pointed out by @Groin there are limits to how a moderator could intervene (if any were available).
I’m also curious as to what you believe the solution is.
Did the opponent leave the game?
Also this is not severe enough for what I would call “toxic”.
Perhaps the user was disturbed by something and couldn’t come back on time.
I think that’s a good reason to report someone after the game has ended.
A moderator cannot interfere in an ongoing game just because someone is slow (I am assuming, based on your description, that your opponent had left the tab open). I looked at your game in question and your opponent’s history. That person has recently lost by disconnection twice and has timed out 4 times in non-blitz games, a pattern of bad behavior that warrants a warning IMHO. You can definitely report your opponent after the game and cite his history as evidence.
I suggest that you use 5 minutes main time and increase the byo-yomi periods if needed.
