International 24-hour Bridge Hackathon starts tomorrow 06:00 UTC - over 50 software developers/techies/researchers players involved

Online tempo
BBO could probably program most of a solution to this problem by enforcing "reasonable" minimum time between bids/plays and informing players that exceed a "reasonable" maximum time to enter a non-bridge reason. This type of thing would probably need to be tweaked for special situations like "declarer initial play ...
Changing Times
