    does blitz affect the correspondence chess rating or is there a separate rating just for blitz?

    I just won a game on blitz. Yes. I know. Thank you.

    I want to exit out of the game so I can win again but a pop-up box says: ]i["Please confirm you want to abandon this game. Please note: You will forfeit this game and your rating will be affected." [/i]

    My opponent's time ran out. How do I collect my winnings?

    I'm not sure if Blitz ratings are working yet, but they have nothing to do with your rating here. Can you find anyplace where it says you have a separate rating for Blitz? They have some bugs to work out, errors like yours don't affect anything right now that I am aware of. Save your PGN out so you can relish in your victory and share with your friends... don't worry about the errors until you have a rating to affect.

    In the lobby of the blitz mircosite, ratings appear beside all of your opponents. The ratings shown are not actually blitz ratings, rather their normal correspondence chess rating. Blitz games do not affect your rating whatsoever.

    Last page, look at Russ' post... good I can start shedding points on blitz too! Terrific.

    I have received that same error message when leaving a blitz game with a player that ran out of time, although the win wasn't awarded. My rating was unaffected anyways when I left

    Russ planing to get ratings going is no new news.... he still needs to hammer out this problem of users getting these messages and no way to confirm the game is finished and who won.

    Blits also needs a nice fat FEEDBACK button so Russ has a view of the problems rathern than digging through these threads and feedback he gets through RHP Correspondn'ce feedback.

    My blits need some attention too, I've been neglecting them lately.
