stop automatically resigning games. Create a history to resume games on hold. Life happens.
If you have allowed notifications on the system will notify you at the 4 day mark and the day before resigning. Notifications vary by platform. They are most commonly disabled on iOS where you have to go to your Apple Settings app and then to Notifications.
I absolutely agree that 7 days is plenty of time. “Life happens” to everyone. Take some responsibility.
I understand that "life happens", but being given 7 days is more than generous to play a single word and prevent resigning automatically. As someone who works full time and takes care of family, I would never start a game if I didn't think I could play in a timely fashion. To do otherwise is rude to your opponent.
I don't want notifications and I don't want to resign from any games. I hate it when I have to be gone for a week and it says I resigned. This will be why I dump the app.

Part of playing a game is agreeing to its parameters. While life happens people who enjoy playing regularly have a crappy stop start experience. Rather allocate time and play a reasonable amount of game to finish. If life happens tough that's part of the challenge. It's impossible one can't find 5 to 10 mins somewhere in the day to wrap up lose ends if things are getting hinky work or home wise. This is a live real time community game and that should be considered before signing up.
I hate this!! Send me notifications that I am 2 days or 1 day before auto resigning! I forget to play!
