Re: timed out games

There's a limitation of the time display on the game page, when the time remaining has more than 8 digits (in seconds). If you look at your "all my games" page, you'll see your opponent actually has more than 100 days of time remaining. So I do need to do something about the display making it look l...

Re: timed out games

The current rule is that timeouts under 10 moves won't count as a win, but still count as a loss. The reasoning being that a lot of people sign up and only make a few moves and disappear, so rating such games just inflates everyone's rating. And if you actually beat someone in under 10 moves, you pr...

Re: Repeated draw offers

It falls under the category of "annoying behavior", the penalty is up to the TD. The recommendation is a warning the first time. I've never had a player do it in any of my OTB tournaments, nor even heard of it happening. I imagine if the apparent goal was to annoy the other player, it would be loss ...

Re: How do we end a Draw game/which a player refuses to ...

A theoretically drawn game is a game where checkmate is impossible, such as KN vs K, KN vs KN is not theoretically drawn. The "50 moves without a pawn push or capture" and the "three move repetition" are the ways to end a game that are drawn in practice.

Players are generally entitled to play out drawn or even obviously lost games. Once you get to a three move repetition, 50 moves without a capture or pawn push, or a theoretical drawn position, a draw can be declared. A "block" feature really only works on blitz sites where you play one game at a ti...

Re: Promoting a pawn.

You're the only one who's reported it, possible others have had it and not said anything. At this point, you might want to just type "b2b1=Q" into the move box to make your move. I'll keep looking into it, but I don't think it's going to get solved anytime soon since I can't cause the problem myself.
