I am in a game where one person hasn't taken a move in 3 days so far. Not a big issue, but I was wondering if there is, or will be, a method to replace a player who has 'disappeared' and no longer making moves.

No, there is no such feature here, games are automatically deleted after 30 days of inactivity.
Personally I don't like the player replacement on the sites which have it: you still have to wait a long timeout period (usually a month) and at that point I prefer to see the dead game disappear rather then resurrect.

Sounds good to me. Thanks for the clarification.

If the game ends after 30 days inactivity, who wins?

Nobody wins, the game is just deleted and disappears.

The only reason I think people might worry about having a game end with no winner as it allows a certain "type" of player to just not play when it looks like they are going to lose. That way they don't have a loss in their statistics.

99.9% of people I think we all agree wont do this. And accidents happen or computers go bad and it takes a month for some to get replacements.

I think it's a nice ides to force a game closed...but if the coding is tough, or if other problems arise from changing it, think we are happy just trying to avoid that 0.1% player. :)
