Why are timed out games annulled?

For some time now, every game that times out gets annulled. So, now when someone is losing, they just let the timer run out and it’s annulled. I used to love OGS, but now I get all my wins annulled.



The annulments are not due to timeouts, but due to insufficient number of moves played. There is a threshold of N moves for NxN boards before which the game is annulled. (This is for historical reasons and there is a debate about lowering the threshold, but as far as I know, there hasn’t been any consensus reached.)

You can resume your love of OGS! :wink:
