    I have emailed the admin about this, but didn't receive a satisfactory answer. Twice, after only 2 moves by each player, I have suddenly been awarded the win, even though winning was impossible. Also, in each of these cases, the moves were made well within move time limits, etc. I really don't WANT these games attributed as wins, since they WEREN'T wins, they were bugs! Also, it doesn't seem fair to attribute a loss to the other party. Can anyone back me up here? I am afraid this will happen again. The response from the board admin was "Please see the section in the help files regarding "Move Timeouts." I don't see anything there to help me. Here is the game:

    On the My Games page you apparantly have hit the skull icon. This causes you to claim the win because the time limit set for your opponent to make a move, has elapsed. At that time the skull icon pops up.

    Never attribute to a bug what can more easily be attributed to your own misunderstanding.

    YOU MIGHT WANT TO CHECK GAME 2521628 WHERE MY OPPONENT RESIGNED AFTER TWO MOVES EACH. NO RISK, NO TIMEOUTS -- COULD IT BE HE/SHE WAS PLAYING FOR A LOWER RATING? SURELY NOT! IF A PLAYER PLAYS THAT GAME, WOULD IT NOT BE AGAINST A PLAYER RATED 888 NOT 1500 LIKE ME ...? Game 2521628

    Please, feel fre to post any question you have about problems or anything you want help about.
    Don't ever hesitate to ask for help when you need help.

    Any other advice is considered rude and unpolite.

    No need for the all caps... That is a 10 move game you linked to, not 2 moves each. You'd need to ask that user why they quit. There is no bug.

    No thanks.

    Stop it Jimmy. The hole you dig just keeps on getting deeper and deeper. You're just exposing yourself. It's getting late for you over there. Turn the coffee pot off.
