A: The link to request to reinstate a timed-out game is included in the e-mail and the private message you receive after the game
is over. After you request to reinstate the game, a brand new regular (i.e. non-team, non-tournament, non-league, etc.) rated
(i.e. it will also affect your rating and stats) game will be created with the same time control as the old one and
starting with the last position on the board. Your opponent will be given an option to decline the reinstatement.
The old timed-out game will still be counted towards your rating and stats (including team rating, tournament standing,
league stats, etc. etc.). In other words, reinstating a game doesn't restore your previous rating nor stats. Please note
that only the timed-out player can request the game reinstatement, and that each game can only be reinstated once.
