    If the time has expired and you want to claim the win then just click the skull next to the game in the my games view.

    Click "My Games" (right under "My Home" ) to get a list of your games. Skulls are shown in the "Action" column.

    Perhaps RHP is just a casual-chess site, like Yahoo. It certainly seems that most people here want it that way.

    In an OTB blitz tournament, I saw one instance where a game had to be completely re-played because a 3rd party called the flag. That's the environment I'm used to.

    I'm assuming that you don't actually have an issue with what has gone on in this thread as this is a site navigation problem, not one where information about the game has been pointed out.

    The game had to be replayed? The 3rd party should get some penalty - i.e. disqualified from the tournament - but the players in the actual game couldn't do anything about that, right?

    Can you prove that the OP even knew that there were time limits on the game before someone told him?

    Game had to be replayed because there is no way to remove the taint of the outside interference, even though neither player was at fault.

    I do not remember whether the 3rd party was entered in the tournament or not. If not, it is more difficult to sanction him.
