    Is blitz chess still down? Or is this just an issue that I am experiencing not trying to log into blitz? Any idea when it will be back up again? It's been several weeks now. Thanks.

    There are a couple of similar threads I could point to in this regard, but you might find the site owners 'updates' of more immediate interest:

    Thank you ... I hope blitz is back up again soon. I think it's one of the best parts of the site.

    If you are having any blitz issues, the following fixes coming tomorrow AM might be of interest.

    - Reduced occurrence of appearing as a "null" player.
    - Final move after a mate/draw condition will show the final move correctly on both boards.
    - PGN will show last move in scenario described above.
    - Opponent quitting and starting a new game will no longer prevent you from retrieving the game FEN.

    Things that are coming :

    - Spectate boards of games in progress.
    - Browse game history after it concludes.
    - And once stability has settled down, a blitz rating.

    Surely worth waiting for, spectating can be great fun in Blitz...and what so so many people have been waiting for, and for so long, a Blitz rate !!
    Will this be shown alongside our 'RHP rates', or perhaps only evident whilst in the Blitz site itself ?
    Great news regardless !!
