I think a system for reporting abandoned games is needed - I've had 2 players stop sending me turns a couple of months ago - I can't report them as won/lost, and there's no dispute.....just they stopped playing and answering e-mails

yep, usually a two or three week period and a moderator is involved, where the mod emails the third party and verifies your win and then posts it..

Personally i would wait 5 days for a reaction and then report a win.
But the rules say i could do that after 3 days.
I always expect from opponents to tell me when they are too busy or not available for some time
and then i´ll wait and it´s ok. Usually this works.
When i now look at some player details for a 9 turn ladder game and i see games 50+ days running i ask
myself often what speed these guy´s are playing or why they don´t report a win. Lol, maybe both stopped to play....

OK - thanks for that - what would the score be?  I see we're supposed to get 100 for each location +1 per PP destroyed - do I just look up the last move I got from him and that one?

One of my opponents responded to another e-mail & we're playing...the other didn't.

500:0 i think since, like Vic wrote, 500 points difference is the max used in the ladder calculation.
Correct me when i´m wrong, Vic

nope just report 500 - 0 on the official ladder or 1 - 0 on the casual ladder.

unless you want to be very nice and report a draw 0-0.

kind regards,
Vic

Not entirely on topic, but I see in the casual ladder 1-0 should be reported, unless it is a draw right?
In my first casual ladder game I reported 500-0, as is written in the FAQ, but I see everyone else reported 1-0.
Does it make any any difference?

Another point is, as there are some scenarios distinguishing between major and minor victory, it would be cool if there would be a way to report that, too.
