Swap peers are inactive

Agreement ID: 14336
Hi! I created a swap, though the other peers are inactive and I can't create the channel, neither trust them much. How do I proceed? Can I cancel the swap or remove the peers? Do I let it expire? Thanks in advance for any guidance

It may take a day or two for your peers to notice they need to act. The swap gives a time limit. 

If you have peers who are regularly offline, it may be a sign to close a channel.

Thanks! So if the node comes online I should open the channel. And if the node is always offline then I can close the channel before the agreement date. Is that right?

Being logged into Lightningnetwork.plus and having your node online are two different things.

When you make a swap, you will need to wait for your peers to take a look at this web site, or respond to an email. You will need to connect to one, another will connect to you. This usually takes a while to complete.

When you say a node is "offline" do you mean they aren't logged into LN+, or do you mean their node is un-contactable with known connection details?

Trying with Thunderhub and it says PeerNotOnline. 
RTL doesn't show any message but doesn's start the channel either. 
When I look at Peer Profile it says "Inactive".
I also noticed the node information shows there's not much activity.

The deadline expired and the peers didn't act on time. How can I cancel the swap and rate the other nodes?
