Nothing happens. You loose nothing, you win nothing. But your opponent will be disappointed, or relieved, if he played a bad round.

The person that challenged you will talk about you behind your back. :(

If you're a regular user of SoloLearn, please be nice and decline a challenge if you don't wish to accept it. Otherwise the person is left hanging for 48hrs.

coolplektor I think that would be open to abuse. People could just challenge inactive users and gain xp.

@Duncan Well, of course if it's implemented that plain without any additional restrictions. My point is that, this logic can be implemented better in order to make the whole thing more engaging and as better experience for user. Consider this: 1. Implement possibility for users to choose are they going to participate in player vs player challenges (simple off, on setting - I'm not sure does this exists). 2. Punish users which allows for their challenges to expire (like, some small punishment, 2XP subtract or something like that). 3. If user does not decline a challenge 5 times in a row (and all 5 times challenges expired, switch him to the off setting and make him non available for the challenges). Simple as that. I cannot find any reason why versus challenges would not have this kind of logic: - People who are learning and they dont want to be involved into challenges, will be able to do so - People who are doing both, they will be able to do so Pros: - More active users when we are talking about the versus challenges - The whole SoloLearn concept is "Learn while playing and having fun.". Right now you have a part of the game in limbo state, which is not fun at all (you finish something, but you dont get any rewards for it) Cons: cannot find any. And at the end of the day, if this above seems complex (which is not at all), I cannot find any reason, why user does not get any points (at least) for correct answers he gave during the challenge (when challenge expire). Even that addition would result with some kind of satisfaction.

it make sense to decline a challenge and not lose xp .. but what is the logic behind applying this rule on expired challenge? Having in mind that your queue with challenges is just filling up, there is no make sense to not have some kind of XP gain for challenger at least. Seems weird that you complete the challenge (good or bad) .. and dont get nothing
