Won a no time limit game by timeout?

Won this game by time out even though the time controls were no time limit.

There’s an overarching time limit that’s been discussed in other threads. It’s to keep the server from getting cluttered up with actually abandoned games.

I think the threshold was 30 or 31 days …

I won a timed out game with no time controls last month after the game had been inactive for about 7 weeks (or a day or two short of 7 weeks). However, in another game without time controls, a friend who has disappeared from OGS recently timed out against someone else after no more than 3 weeks (it may be a day or two more or less because it isn’t clear exactly when she disappeared). So I’m baffled as to what the default time limit is. The threshold of a month, which you mention, sounds familiar, but doesn’t seem to be working right.

Fun fact: adding weekend pauses with “no time control” will lift the 30 day threshold. I’ve got one game like that from 2014, still waiting for my opponent to come back xD
